Barth: self-revelation

Wednesday, October 21, 2020
    Philip said, “Lord, show us the Father and that will be enough for us.”
    Jesus answered: “Don’t you know me, Philip, even after I have been among you such a long time? Anyone who has seen me has seen the Father. How can you say, ‘Show us the Father’?”
    —John 14:8-9 (NIV)
    A student: “Sir, don’t you think that God has revealed himself in other religions and not only in Christianity?”
    Barth: “No, God has not revealed himself in any religion, including Christianity. He has revealed himself in his Son.”
    ... Karl Barth (1886-1968), during his 1963 Princeton lectures
    See also John 14:7-11; Matt. 3:16-17; 16:14-17; 17:1-5; John 1:14; 5:37-38; Heb. 1:1-2
Quiet time reflection:
    Father, we know You because of Your Son.
