Stephen Edmondson articulates a coherent Christology from Calvin's commentaries and his Institutes. He argues that, through the medium of Scripture's history, Calvin, the biblical humanist, renders a Christology that seeks to capture both the breadth of God's multifaceted grace as enacted in history, and the hearts of God's people as formed by history. What emerges is a picture of Christ as the Mediator of God's covenant through his threefold role of priest, king and prophet.
