Geerhardus Vos – God Alone Possesses Ideal Knowledge

17 Mar

It is also true that we do not have an in-depth and comprehensive knowledge of God. All our knowledge, even with regard to created things, is in part. This is even truer of God. We only know Him insofar as He reveals Himself, that is, has turned His being outwardly for us. God alone possesses ideal knowledge of Himself and of the whole world, since He pervades everything with His omniscience.

    Old Geerhardus Vos well deserves our theological study, he has been called “the father of Reformed biblical theology.” Sad that the book: The Self-Disclosure of Jesus: The Modern Debate about the Messianic Consciousness (of Jesus)…1926, is out of print! Here Vos shows that in reality the “real” Jesus was most certainly an Eschatological Messiah!
