Divine Revelation

According to the divinely-inspired theology of the saints and the pious mind of the Church

Divine Revelation puts forward the view that Holy Scripture is part of holy tradition, and that holy tradition is the revelation of God, which was given once and for all to the saints on the day of Pentecost, and remains within the Church. When we speak of the revelation of God we mean first and foremost God’s manifestation of Himself to mankind.

The saints, living organically united with the Church and enlightened by the Holy Spirit, receive God’s revelation and then give it authoritative expression.   Revelation is closely linked with Orthodox teaching. The holy Fathers communicate the tradition, and are inspired and unerring teachers of the Church. Not everyone can interpret Holy Scripture, because our understanding of biblical texts is commensurate with our spiritual experience and spiritual life.

The Church writes and interprets Holy Scripture through the saints, and the revelation of God is not completely identical with Holy Scripture.

Divine Revelation makes readers aware of Orthodox theology and life. Anyone who lives within the Church as a faithful member is changed, born again, and in a mysterious way receives the tradition and creates tradition.
