How did the early church view the revelation of God? The article discusses the views of the second-century apologists and their Christian contemporaries. The apologists claimed that the Scriptures contained knowledge unattainable by the human mind; a special inspiration was needed. It was their conviction that the Bible reveals man to himself as he could never have known himself without revelation and that it reveals God in his grace and goodness, which man could never know without Scripture.
