Gore: full disclosure

Wednesday, January 17, 2024
    Feast of Antony of Egypt, Abbot, 356
    Commemoration of Charles Gore, Bishop, Teacher, Founder of the Community of the Resurrection, 1932
    [Jesus:] “I have revealed you to those whom you gave me out of the world. They were yours; you gave them to me and they have obeyed your word. Now they know that everything you have given me comes from you.”
    —John 17:6-7 (NIV)
    The self-disclosure of God which reached its culmination in Jesus Christ is final, and that by the very necessity of the case. That is to say, if Jesus Christ is God incarnate, no fuller disclosure of God in terms of manhood than is given in His person is conceivable or possible.
    ... Charles Gore (1853-1932), The New Theology and the Old Religion, E.P. Dutton, 1907, p. vii (see the book)
    See also John 17:6-7; Matt. 11:27; Luke 10:22; John 1:14,18; 12:44-46; 14:7-9; 17:26; 2 Cor. 4:6; Phil. 2:6; Col. 1:15; Heb. 1:3; 1 John 4:9; 5:20
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have given me the gift of Your true self.
