Contrasting Old Testament and New Testament Revelation

Long ago, at many times and in many ways, God spoke to our fathers by the prophets, but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world.  (Hebrews 1:1,2)

The word for God reveals how God has revealed himself in times past and how he now reveals himself to man. ¬†Unfortunately divine inspiration of the scriptures has been under attack for many years and the sufficiency of the word of God is presently being undermined by subjective claims regarding God’s present mode of communication. ¬†The following illustrations are to help us reflect on God’s revelatory process for it is wondrous and complete for the maturing of the spiritual man (2 Timothy 3:16,17).
