Lesson 3: The Final Authority in Matters of Faith: Revelation


Read Know the Truth: Chapter 2: Revelation (Pages 25-33)

Questions for Discussion

1. ‘Only God can be a fit witness concerning himself.’ ‘We can know God only as he places himself within the reach of our knowledge.’ Can these maxims be supported from Scripture? Investigate the implications for the way in which God can be known by us.

2. Distinguish between general and special revelation. Is this a necessary distinction? Can you suggest an alternative terminology?

3. What are the implications of general revelation for (a) evangelism, (b) a Christian view of culture, (c) Christian apologetics, (d) the Christian view of the state?

4. Is there any sense in which God is known in other world religions?

5. In what sense may conscience be a guide to our knowledge of God?

6. Explore the relationship between Christ and Scripture in Christian revelation.

7. What is the function of the Holy Spirit in our coming to know God truly?
