The Bible is in a
sense a biography of God in this world. In it the Indescribable One has in a
sense described Himself.
Holy Scriptures of the New Testament are a biography of the incarnate God in
this world. In them it is related how God, in order to reveal Himself to men,
sent God the Logos, Who took on flesh and became man, and as man told men
everything that God is, everything that God wants from this world and the
people in it.
the Logos revealed Godís plan for the world and Godís love for the world. God
the Word spoke to men about God with the help of words insofar as human words
can contain the uncontainable God.
that is necessary for this world and the people in it ó the Lord has stated in
the Bible. In it He has given the answers to all questions. There is no
question which can torment the human soul, and not find its answer, either
directly or indirectly in the Bible.
cannot devise more questions than there are answers in the Bible. If you fail
to find the answer to any of your questions in the Bible, it means that you
have either posed a senseless question or did not know how to read the Bible
and did not finish reading the answer in it.
