This article challenges the previous standard interpretation of the organic motif in the writings of Herman Bavinck (1854-1921) found in Jan Veenhof's Revelatie en Inspiratie. It does so by putting Veenhof's account into conversation with more general histories of organicism, following which it highlights discrepancies between Veenhof's account and Bavinck's own definition of organicism. It concludes by asking whether the source of Bavinck's organic motif might be historic Reformed theology, rather than the sources indicated by Veenhof.
