Sample text

Here a few distinctions may be useful. 1. The grandest miracles which are the credentials of revelation are in the substance of the revelation itself. Very many of the extraordinary interpositions it records are not bound up with the nature and purpose of the economy of God's redeeming will, but have been miraculous attestations of individual missions. When, however, we rise from its appendages, circumstantials, and preliminaries to the Great Redemption itself, the case is different. Christ the Author of Christianity and its Substance and its End is the supreme Miracle, and everything connected with Him is miraculous.

3 His testimony to Himself, borne, moreover, to one who was not His disciple, is: Every one that is of the truth heareth My voice, 4 where of the truth points to the mystery of man's free posture of mind as disposed or otherwise to be guided aright. This final declaration of Him Who knew what was in man 5 expresses the spirit of His entire teaching concerning the selfmanifestation of His truth to every man's conscience who wills to do His will. 6 Secondly, the light of the body of revelation is the Holy Ghost.

Further disclosure on the part of the Spirit, but as the consolidation of the Savior’s teaching into its perfect unity, and its expansion into its perfect meaning. No future streams of revelation were to rise higher than the fountainhead of truth opened in Himself. Hence we may repeat concerning the Book what has been said concerning the Lord's teaching: the Bible means all revelation and all revelation means the Bible. 1 Matt. 5:17; 2 1 Cor. 13:10; 3 John 14:26; 4 John 16:13. 3. We are justified, therefore, in holding that the Scriptures of revelation and Christianity, as the Christian Faith, cover the same ground and strictly coincide.
