This research will evaluate Robert Jenson's theology on theosis and assess his contribution to the Reformed tradition. It will examine Jenson's revised metaphysical understanding of (1) the Creator-creature distinction, (2) the mediator role of Christ, and (3) the understanding of self. Jenson's insights will then be tested by the Reformed tradition, in particular, the study will bring to bear John Calvin's critique of Andreas Osiander on the three above-mentioned aspects. The study's notable findings will be used to formulate a Reformed understanding of the subject.
