"What position does the translation of Scripture play in theological building? In analyzing the Decree David Gibson examines the exegesis of election in John Calvin and Karl Barth, and considers the connection among election and Christology of their notion. He argues that for either Calvin and Barth their doctrine of election and its exegetical moorings are christologically formed, yet in considerably other ways. development on Richard A. Muller's conceptual contrast among Calvin's soteriological christocentrism and Barth's principial christocentrism, Gibson rigorously explores their exegesis of the subjects of Christ and election, and the election of Israel and the church. This contrast is then additional built through displaying the way it has a corresponding hermeneutical shape: wide christocentrism (Calvin) and extensive christocentrism (Barth). through focussing at the reception of biblical texts interpreting the Decree attracts consciousness to the overlooked exegetical foundations of Calvin's doctrine of election, and makes a clean contribution to present debates over election in Barth's thought.The result's a research with a purpose to be of curiosity to biblical students, in addition to old and systematic theologians alike.  "

Büsser, ‘Bullinger as Calvin’s 22 CALVIN, BARTH AND CHRISTOCENTRISM challenge a trajectory of older Calvin scholarship which tended to view the Institutes as the primary source for any understanding of Calvin’s theology. Such a conception of Calvin’s project overlooked the implications of the 1539 preface appearing just as Calvin was preparing his first commentary (Romans) for publication. 80 This argument for symbiotic complementarity is well made and sets in place vital criteria for assessing the development of Calvin’s exegetical and doctrinal work.

In Chapter 3, ‘Community and Election’, the focus is on Calvin’s and Barth’s use of the same text: Romans 9–11. I show that in their readings of this material they have strikingly different understandings of the relationship 98 In this study, Barth’s theology of interpretation is restricted to its expression in the Church Dogmatics, as this provides the material most closely to hand for examining his exegesis of election. Undoubtedly there are precedents for this even as far back as Barth’s ‘Die neue Welt’ lecture in 1917, but it is left to others to explore the connections.
