Lutheran & Calvinist Christologies

...the deepest divergence between Lutheranism and Calvinism may be best understood as a reawakening in the Reformation of the old christological schools. So the controversy between the Lutherans and the Reformed about the Lord's Supper became a struggle to understand Chalcedon. The question of the presence of the true body and blood of Christ in the Sacrament of the Altar leads to the question whether the human nature of Christ is so united with His divine nature that it partakes of its attributes.

From The 1.500th Anniversary of Chalcedon, Letters to Lutheran Pastors No. 21 (September, 1951); trans. Norman Nagel in We Confess Jesus Christ (CPH 1984:64).
