Hunnius, Aegidius: The Judaizing Calvin

A product could not be loaded.
In The Judaizing Calvin, Lutheran theologian Aegidius Hunnius (1550–1603) analyzes the writings of John Calvin, the chief teacher of the Reformed Church—and documents a persistent pattern of interpretation in Calvin which undermines the fundamental teachings of the New Testament concerning Christ Jesus. Hunnius contends that Calvin was a “judaizing” theologian—one who favored a Rabbinic Jewish interpretation of Old Testament prophecies—and that Calvin’s interpretations undermined the New Testament teachings concerning the Incarnation, the doctrine of the Trinity, and the death, resurrection, and ascension of Jesus. Hunnius provides the reader with a passionate and substantial refutation of Calvin’s flawed interpretations, and upholds the apostolic understanding of the connection between Old Testament Messianic prophecy and the New Testament fulfillment of those prophecies.
