Calvin's views concerning the anointing of the sick for healing serve as one of the clearest and most consistent cases of apostolic discontinuity in his theology and praxis. A detailed exploration of these views provides insight into Calvin's ecclesiological understanding with regard to the classification and purpose of temporary sacraments and gifts, the evidence for their withdrawal, the dispensational shift between apostolic and post-apostolic periods, and the continuity of the divine presence.
