Christ: Salvation in Christ

Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the place of Christ in salvation. It is in the way reformers understood and preached Christ, particularly salvation in Christ, that they differed from their opponents in the medieval church. Some of these differences account for the disagreement between Luther and Zwingli. One aspect that is stronger in Zwingli than in Luther is the stress on Christ as teacher and example. There are differences between Zwingli and Luther not only in their understanding of the person of Christ but also on their understanding of his place. For instance, Zwingli stresses the distinctiveness of the natures while Luther emphasizes the unity of the person.
