Thisstudy examines the development of the doctrine of justicationin the works of the prominent rst and second generation Lutheran reformers, from the viewpoints of divine participation and eectiveness of justication. Generally, Luther’s idea of  Christ’s real presence in the believer as the central part of  justication is maintained and taught by all Reformers, while they simultaneously develop various theological frameworksto depict the nature of participation. However, in some casesthese developed models are contradictory, causing tensionbetween theologians resulting in the invention of new doctrinalformulations.Table of Contents available Olli-Pekka Vainio , D.
