Incarnation and Sacrament

Keith Mathison summarizes Calvin’s view of the Eucharist in his foreword to Jonathan Bonomo Incarnation and Sacrament. Mathison argues that Calvin followed Augustine in defining a sacrament as a “visible sign of a sacred thing.” For Calvin,

…the sacraments seal the promises found in the Word. The sacrament of the Lord’s Supper specifically seals the promise that those who partake of the bread and wine by faith truly partake of the body and blood of Christ.
