About the Author:

John Calvin (/ˈkælvɪn/FrenchJean Calvin [ʒɑ̃ kalvɛ̃]; born Jehan Cauvin; 10 July 1509 – 27 May 1564) was a Frenchtheologianpastor and reformer in Geneva during the Protestant Reformation. He was a principal figure in the development of the system of Christian theology later called Calvinism, aspects of which include the doctrines of predestination and of the absolute sovereignty of God in salvation of the human soul from death and eternal damnation, in which doctrines Calvin was influenced by and elaborated upon the Augustinian and other Christian traditions. Various CongregationalReformed and Presbyterian churches, which look to Calvin as the chief expositor of their beliefs, have spread throughout the world.

Calvin was a tireless polemic and apologetic writer who generated much controversy. He also exchanged cordial and supportive letters with many reformers, including Philipp Melanchthon and Heinrich Bullinger. In addition to his seminal Institutes of the Christian Religion, Calvin wrote commentaries on most books of the Bible, confessional documents, and various other theological treatises.

Originally trained as a humanist lawyer, he broke from the Roman Catholic Church around 1530. After religious tensions erupted in widespread deadly violence against Protestant Christians in France, Calvin fled to Basel, Switzerland, where in 1536 he published the first edition of the Institutes. In that same year, Calvin was recruited by Frenchman William Farel to join the Reformation in Geneva, where he regularly preached sermons throughout the week; but the governing council of the city resisted the implementation of their ideas, and both men were expelled. At the invitation of Martin Bucer, Calvin proceeded to Strasbourg, where he became the minister of a church of French refugees. He continued to support the reform movement in Geneva, and in 1541 he was invited back to lead the church of the city.

Following his return, Calvin introduced new forms of church government and liturgy, despite opposition from several powerful families in the city who tried to curb his authority. During this period, Michael Servetus, a Spaniard regarded by both Roman Catholics and Protestants as having a heretical view of the Trinity, arrived in Geneva. He was denounced by Calvin and burned at the stake for heresy by the city council. Following an influx of supportive refugees and new elections to the city council, Calvin's opponents were forced out. Calvin spent his final years promoting the Reformation both in Geneva and throughout Europe.

 

Hungarian Summary:

A Református Egyházi Könyvtár (vagy népszerű nevén: parókiális könyvtár) sorozat régi és régen megszakadt vállalkozása volt egyházunk szellemi életének. Ideje, hogy korszerűbb keretek között, több mint negyven (gyakorlatilag azonban hatvanöt) évi szünet után újrainduljon. (...) A most induló sorozat, melyben először Kálvin újszövetségi kommentárjai jelennek meg (részben a már korábban megjelent fordítások javított, korszerű kiadásával, részben a lappangó fordítások kinyomtatásával, illetve a magyarra eddig le nem fordított munkák fordításával), azt a legmélyebb és eredeti református keresztyén meggyőződést szolgálja, hogy a lehető legteljesebben megértsük azt, ami Isten igéjében, a Szentírásban tárul fel számunkra, hogy ugyanis kicsoda Isten, és milyen ő a számunkra (ahogy Kálvin fogalmaz legjelentősebb rendszerezett bibliamagyarázó munkájában, az Institutio-ban). Ideje hát, hogy Kálvin előtűnjék? Ideje, hogy a magyar reformátusság szellemi ereje előtűnjék? Igen. De leginkább annak van ideje (mint mindig is volt és lesz), hogy Isten kinyilatkoztatása tűnjék elő, úgy és abban, ahogy önmagát szent igéjében kijelentette, ahogy azt egy-egy kor olvasója felfoghatta, s ahogy bármely kor igehallgatója a hirdetett igében a Szentlélek belső munkája által meghallhatta. Az újrainduló sorozat kötetei a keresztyén írásmagyarázat egyik legnagyobb alakjának, Kálvinnak munkáit közlik - azért is, hogy Kálvin újra kortársunk lehessen, de leginkább azért, hogy vele együtt tehessünk kísérletet az isteni kinyilatkoztatás megértésére, a Krisztusban elvégzett üdvözítő munka elfogadására, és az isteni akarat hálás teljesítésére. (Bogárdi Szabó István ajánlásából)

 

English Summary:

Calvin produced commentaries on most of the books of the Bible. His commentaries cover the larger part of the Old Testament, and all of the new excepting Second and Third John and the Apocalypse. His commentaries and lectures stand in the front rank of Biblical interpretation. The present commentary, necessarily partaking of the character of the Book which it is designed to illustrate, is more historical than doctrinal; and hence does not contain so much profound theological discussion as some of Calvin's other Commentaries. The leading topic is the progress of the Gospel under the inspired teachers to whom its first propagation was entrusted, and, in immediate connection with this, the Constitution of the Apostolic Church, and the privileges enjoyed by its members. To this latter point the attention of the religious world is now more especially directed; and whatever be the views entertained with regard to it by any reader into whose hands this Commentary may fall, if he feels aright, he will not think that his study of the controversy is complete until he has made himself acquainted with what has been said upon it by such a man as Calvin.
