The truth is marching on! Models for Reformation: John Knox (1505-1572) John Knox was ordained a priest in the Roman Catholic Church in Scotland at the time when John Calvin began the Reformation of Geneva

  • The flames of the Reformation began to be kindled in Scotland in the heart and mind of Knox's close friend George Wiseheart

  • When Wiseheart was burned at the stake by Cardinal Beaton, the fires that consumed his body fired the heart of John Knox

  • Two years later, Beaton was assassinated by "parties unknown." Shortly after the death of Beaton, John Knox came to Edinburgh as a newly ordained priest, having been accused of "hatching the plot" against the cardinal even though he did not personally take a hand in executing it

  • Soon Knox had a growing group of followers

  • He accused the Catholic clergy of Scotland of being "gluttons, wantons and licentious revelers, but who yet regularly and meekly partook of the sacrament." Knox traveled to Geneva three times to study under Calvin who had a high regard for the young Scotsman

  • On his arrival in Scotland, Knox heard about the state of affairs in Perth, after just two nights in Edinburgh, travelled to Dundee where he requested of the Lords, "that he might be permitted to assist his brethren, and to give confession of his faith with them." Permission was granted to him, and he then set out for Perth

  • Anna Locke, Knox writes, "I see the battle shall be great; and I am come, I praise my God, even in the brunt of the battle

  • Assist me, sister with your prayers, that now I shrink not when the battle approacheth." When Knox arrived in Perth, Sir James Croft reports that he became the center of the movement, even though he was still not sure what lay ahead; at this time, he was "uncertain as yet what God shall further work in this country, except that I see the battle shall be great, for Satan rageth even to the uttermost." Knox, then, did not hesitate to jump right into the thick of controversy
