The subject of revelation is always God. Of ourselves we cannot know God unless he makes himself known. Unless God intervenes. In all things it is ‘God who upholds us, who places himself in our path, who becomes our limit, who demands the keeping of his commands,commands, who demands that we let ourselves be disturbed in our acts, that we learn to consider that we are human and not God.’ K. Barth.
The point of revelation is ‘not to grasp, but be grasped’.
