Theodore Beza was John Calvin's associate and successor in the reform of Geneva and, like Calvin, a lawyer by training rather than a theologian. While the earlier scholarship tended to stress the theological differences between Calvin and Beza, especially in their doctrine of predestination, a more recent scholarship has stressed the continuity of their teaching.

Keywords: Beza; Calvin; predestination
