The term "Reformed" theology comes from the events and times of the Reformation and the ministries of the early Protestant Christians, but the definition of Reformed ~Theology~ is the study and teaching of GRACE.
God's grace manifested in the Person of Jesus Christ.
"He is the image of the invisible God, the first born over all creation." Colossians 1:15
Jesus Christ, whose name is "The Word of God" (Rev. 19:13) and Who was God (John 1:1), full of grace and truth:
"And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth." John 1:14
Truth is inseparable from grace, and grace is inseparable from truth. For both are found only in God, through faith in His Son.
