The Sacrament: John Calvin: 1537


The Scholastic dogma (to glance at it in passing), by which the difference between the sacraments of the old and the new dispensation is made so great, that the former did nothing but shadow forth the grace of God, while the latter actually confer that it, must be altogether exploded. Since the apostle speaks in no higher terms of the one than of the other, when he says that the fathers ate of the same spiritual food, and explains that that food was Christ ( Cor. x. ), who will presume to regard as an empty sign that which gave a manifestation to the Jews of true communion with Christ?

UGC NET Syllabus in Comparative Study of Religions


Comparative Study of Religions: Comparative religion is the branch of the study of religions concerned with the systematic comparison of the doctrines and practices of the world’s religions. In general the comparative study of religion yields a deeper understanding of the fundamental philosophical concerns of religion such as ethics, metaphysics and the nature and form of salvation. Studying such material is meant to give one a richer and more sophisticated understanding of human beliefs and practices regarding the sacred, numinous, spiritual and divine. In the field of comparative religion, the main world religions are generally classified as Abrahamic (aka Western Asian or Western), Dharmic (aka Indian) or Taoic (aka East Asian or Far Eastern).
