Barth and revelation

'Not God alone, but God and man together constitute the content of the Word of God'

  • Church Dogmatics I/2 207

What a great quote, and one which staves off potential misunderstandings about Barth's theology, I think. In my own work on Paul, I maintain that Paul's divine Christology is the relationship between risen Lord and believers, so you can perhaps see why I like this!

In what way is the Bible a work of "God and man" while all other writings, no matter how inspiring, how filled with practical moral wisdom, how filled with tales of miracles, are just the work of "man?"

Jason, I am not listening!

Ed, yea, I would refer to Highanddry - I would also ask you to consider what your question presupposes
