Book 1, Chapter 6: The Need of Scripture, as a Guide and Teacher, in Coming to God as a Creator

John Calvin’s Institutes of the Christian Religion translated by Henry Beveridge. Book 1, Chapter 6.

Sections

  1. God gives his elect a better help to the knowledge of himself—viz. the Holy Scriptures. This he did from the very first.
  2. First, By oracles and visions, and the ministry of the Patriarchs. Secondly, By the promulgation of the Law, and the preaching of the Prophets. Why the doctrines of religion are committed to writing.
  3. This view confirmed, 1. By the depravity of our nature making it necessary in every one who would know God to have recourse to the word; 2. From those passages of the Psalms in which God is introduced as reigning.
  4. Another confirmation from certain direct statements in the Psalms. Lastly, From the words of our Saviour.
