    Abstract: 論文摘要:
    This thesis discusses from three dimensions, the history, the Bible, and theology, the theme of "Union with Christ" which is one of the important subjects of the theology of John Calvin by examining and analyzing the biblical commentaries and institutes of the Christian Religion of Calvin.
    The first of the five chapters presents the method of study, in addition to the
    motivation and the goal of this study and the summaries and criticism of the relative researches. The method of this study begins with the biblical foundation and the historical development of theology by employing the method of textual interpretation.
    This study also refers to the methodology of the theology of Calvin argued by Richard Muller and the five
    Characteristics of the sound theological methodology proposed by J.I. Packer.
    The second chapter explains the historical background of the theme. In order to engage the readers to the understanding of Union with Christ and to establish the
    writing principle of this study, this chapter first explains the translation and internal meaning of the word, “union,” by grammatical interpretation. Secondly, the
    illustration of the conception of Union with Christ and the theological vocabularies
    extended from it is depicted by analyzing the keywords related to Union with Christ
    in the Scripture according to the Pauline and Johannine traditions. The theological
    base is grounded in the framework of Christology and Soteriology. Finally, the history of the Spirituality regarding Union with Christ is presented by examining the writings and perspectives of the representative figures two eras before the age of Calvin.
    The third chapter elucidates the influence of theological development of Union with Christ to Calvin. Following the analysis in the previous chapter, the thoughts of
    the early Fathers and the medieval theologians lay the foundation in the thinking of Calvin. Moreover, Martin Luther’s thoughts on Justification by faith and the wonderful exchange play the most important role in the formation of the theme of Union with Christ in Calvin’s theology in the age of Reformation. It can be said that Calvin develops his theology based on the thoughts of Luther.
    Chapter four illustrates how Calvin elaborate on the theme of Union with Christ.
    This chapter begins with the mysterious union as the spiritual direction and the
    relationship between Union with Christ and the Order of Salvation. Secondly, classical examples of scriptures from Calvin’s biblical commentaries are examined in order to present his thoughts on Union with Christ. Thirdly, in terms of the mysterious speech of Union with Christ, it is necessary to distinguish two kinds of uniting states in the union: the personal from the communal, the essential from the spiritual. Finally, this chapter ends in reading Union with Christ from the perspectives of epistemology, Christology, and Soteriology with the glasses of Union with Christ.
    The final chapter concludes by presenting the multi-dimensions of the theme of Union with Christ as the theological features of Calvin in terms of biblical foundation,
    historical developments, and theological category. This chapter includes the result of the study, the meaning of Union with Christ, the difficulty and limitation of the study and the prospects for further research in the future. It is the aim of this study to introduce step by step and logically to the readers the theme of Union with Christ.
