Calvin’s Law-Gospel Hermeneutic In Hebrews 6

He calls it a tasting of the good word of God; by which he means, that the will of God is therein revealed, not in any sort of way, but in such a way as sweetly to delight us; in short, by this title is
pointed out the difference between the Law and the Gospel; for that has nothing but severity and condemnation, but this is a sweet testimony of God’s love and fatherly kindness towards us.

—John Calvin, Commentary on Hebrews 6:4.
