Excerpt from Canadian First Standard Teacher Training Course: Nos; 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Combined Revelation. - It has pleased God to make Himself kwn t only in nature (Ps. 19; Rom. 1:19-20), but also in human history (Ps. 103:7; Heb. 1:1-2).In some measure the light of this divine revelation has come to all men (John 1:9), but in a peculiar and an especial manner God revealed His nature and His will to the Hebrew people, and through them to the world (Isa. 49:6; John 4:22). The Bible is the literature of this people, the record of this revelation, the Word of God which liveth and abideth. The Bible. - The Bible is t one book but many, and presents a variety of literary form. There are books of history, of biography, of poetry, and of prophecy, epistles or letters, and vision or allegory. It has been appropriately called the Divine Library and the Holy Scriptures. By the early Greek Christians it was often called ta Biblia, the Books. This passed over into Latin as Biblia and was treated as a singular, and so, from the Latin usage, we get our word Bible. The Covenant. - God's gracious revelation to His people, through chosen and Inspired men, is often presented in the Bible as a Covenant or binding agreement. See, for example, Gen. 15; 18; 17:7; Ex. 24:7; Ps. 89:3; Jer. 31; 31-34; Heb. 8:8-13. This covenant relation involved, on the part of Israel, obedience to the will of God, as revealed to them in their laws, and in the teaching of their prophets, and, on God's part, fulfilment to them of His promise and purpose of salvation.
