Heinrich Bullinger (1504–1575) on Christ's Expiation

The Lord made to meet on him, as an expiatory sacrifice, not one or another or most sins of one or other man, but all the iniquities of all of us. Therefore I say, the sins of all men of the world of all ages have been expiated by his death.
Bullinger, Isaiah, p.266b, sermon 151; cited in G. Michael Thomas, The Extent of the Atonement: A dilemma for Reformed Theology from Calvin to the Consensus 1536–1675 (Paternoster, 1997), 75.
