The summary chapter was just that: a long dreary summary, which seemed to me to be unnecessary. That thing was done for a betokening, and it passed away. Nevertheless, the NT offers patterns as to how the Gospel is to be presented, received and lived out. They can be further subdivided into three groups: utterance, power, and revelation. They are the plural forms of charisma, meaning "expression of grace ," and pneumatikon meaning "expression of Spirit. John Calvin turned the cessationist polemic against Roman Catholicism and the radical reformation, undercutting their claims to religious authority they based on miracles and revelations.
