Calvin on Worship

Too, in Genesis 1:26, God Triune — comments Calvin — "is about to undertake something great….   The [judaistic] Jews make themselves altogether ridiculous, in pretending that God held communication with the earth or with angels….  

"Christians therefore properly contend from this testimony [‘Come let Us make man!’], that there exists a plurality of Persons in the Godhead….   I acknowledge indeed that there is something in man [‘the image of God’] which refers to the Father and the Son and the Spirit."

Already at Adam’s creation, God anticipated even the very manner in which Christ would later breathe His Spirit into His elect Apostles.   For even way back then, the Triune God (viz. the Father through His Word and Spirit) breathed into man the breath of life and man’s own logos or reason.
