Because Calvin was a sound exegete, little of what he wrote is dated. Althought his treatment of the early chapters is thorough, it is not disproportionate, and the later narratives concering Noah, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Joseph are not passed over hastily. Indeed, Calvin excels in bringing out the principles of God's dealings with men, as individuals and in covenant, and in showing faithfully yet tenderly the human weakness and sin all too evident in Genesis.
