At the beginning of the human race that old serpent led humanity away from the word of the law, and thus from the covenant of creation by a false interpretation. . . . The summary of this law shining forth in the image of God was that he love the Lord his God with all his heart . . . and as a testimony of this love refrain from eating from the one tree.
Caspar Olevianus, De substantia, 2.27; Geneva, 1585.
