Abstract

This essay examines three passages in Calvin's commentary on John (1553) in order to trace how Calvin steers away from traditional reflections on Christ's two natures in such a way as to open the door for discussions of human nature. His anthropologically-focused reading of the Fourth Gospel transforms traditional notions of what makes John so unique and special. At the same time, Calvin's approach can be seen as a culmination of a trend in Johannine interpretation introduced by Lutheran exegetes and, simultaneously, can be understood as sharing key emphases of Reformed interpreters of John.
