Schlesinger, Eugene R. “Use Your Allusion: How Reformed Sacramental Theology Makes Sense of Sacramental Language in John 3 and 6.” Westminster Theological Journal 74 no. 2 (Fall 2012): 355-366
The author discusses the adoption of a Reformed sacramental theology concept in the reading and interpretation of biblical passages in the book of John. He discusses arguments relating to the sacramental language which references baptism and the Eucharist. He explains why the language employed by Jesus Christ in his dialogue with Saint Nicodemus may be deemed as too strong. He also reflects on sacramental connections in passages concerning doctrinal commitments and God’s grace.
