Calvin's twist in the redemptive tale

Adam, Abel, Noah, Abraham, and the other patriarchs cleaved to God by such illumination of the Word. Therefore I say without any doubt they entered into God's immortal Kingdom. For theirs was a real participation in God, which cannot be without the blessing of eternal life.

Institutes
(1559) II.X.7

Sure makes for interesting theological exegesis of Roms 5 and 1 Cor 15.
