Though John Calvin and the other ministers appealed to Servetus to repent right up to the time of his execution, Servetus adamantly maintained his position and uttered the following as he went to the flames of execution,
“Jesus, son of the eternal God, have mercy on me?”
According to W. Robert Godfrey, Servetus maintained his ant-trinitarian position to the very end. “By those words Servetus maintained even in the flames that Jesus was not himself eternal God” (John Calvin: Pilgrim and Pastor).
Servetus saw Jesus as Savior but not as God. But how could this Jesus save anyone, much less Michael Servetus?
