OPSOMMING

Daar het reeds 'n hele aantal studies oor die verhouding tussen Calvyn se Kategismus (1545) en die Heidelbergse Kategismus die lig gesien. Die behoefte aan 'n vergelyking tussen hierdie Kategismus en die Heidelbergse Kategismus wat die verklaring van die Onse Vadergebed betref, is reeds by die Suid-Afrikaanse Calvynnavorsingskongres in 2004 uitgespreek. In die sestiende-eeuse Reformasie het die verklaring van die Onse Vadergebed 'n baie belangrike plek ingeneem. Uit die pen van Calvyn het daar agt verklarings verskyn in sy kommentare, kategismusse van 1538, 1545 en die verskillende uitgawes van die "Institusie". In sowel die Geneefse Kategismus van 1542/1545 as die Heidelbergse Kategismus vorm die verklaring van die Onse Vadergebed 'n belangrike deel. 'n Vergelyking van hierdie verklarings, toon aan dat die teologiese insigte van Calvyn 'n belangrike rol gespeel het in die formulering van die Heidelberger. Die Heidelbergse Kategismus is deel van ons Calvinistiese erfenis en steeds die lewende belydenis van die ware geloof van baie kerkgemeenskappe en behoort steeds gebruik te word in die kategetiese onderrig.

Kernbegrippe: 1536-Institusie; Calvyn, Kategismus; Geneefse Kategismus; Heidelbergse Kategismus; Onse Vadergebed


ABSTRACT

Several studies on the relationship between Calvin's Catechism (1545) and the Heidelberg Catechism have already been conducted. However, the need for a study of a comparison between the two catechisms on the Lord's Prayer was emphasised at the South African Calvin Research Conference in 2004. In the sixteenth century Reformation the Lord's Prayer was a subject of considerable importance. Calvin wrote no less than eight different expositions of the Lord's Prayer in his commentaries, catechisms of 1538 and 1545 and the different editions of his "Institutes". In both the Geneva Catechism of 1542/1545 and the Heidelberg Catechism the exposition of the Lord's Prayer forms an important part. A comparison of these expositions leads to the conclusion that the theological insights of John Calvin played a major role in the formulation of the Heidelberg Catechism. The Heidelberg Catechism is part of our Calvinist heritage and should still be used in the instruction of our children and confessed as our true and living faith.

Key concepts: 1536 Institutes; Calvin, Catechism; Geneva Catechism; Heidelberg Catechism; Lord's Prayer
