Chapter 3 explains, in depth, Martin Bucer’s doctrine of justification in his Romans Commentary of 1536. This chapter demonstrates how the Socratic dictum “To know the good is to do the good” is paradigmatic for Bucer’s soteriology, which illuminates the importance of his intellectualizing view of faith and its relation to works. Within this framework the previous attempt to describe his doctrine as double justification is shown as problematic. This chapter also explores Bucer’s epistemological, anthropological, and psychological perspectives.
