Abstract and Keywords

In this essay the closely interconnected themes of Christology, predestination and covenant in post-Reformation Reformed theology are discussed. Because of the huge amount of material in this field, it is limited to a discussion of some representative issues, and for this purpose a select group of representative theologians (J. H. Heidegger, J. Maccovius and J. Cocceius). It analyzes in some detail their views on Christology, predestination and covenant in their historical context in order to see what is distinctive about Reformed Christology, which debates took place over predestination, and which variations in covenant theology occurred, with some accent on how scholarly perceptions have changed.

Keywords: archetypal theology, ectypal theology, Reformed theology, Christology, predestination, necessity, freedom and contingency, covenant of works, covenant of grace
