The Glory of God

Dr. Claude Mariottini - Professor of Old Testament

Most people, especially people of faith, believe in God. However, most people do not know the God in whom they believe. In many cases, people’s knowledge of God is second-handed. These people are like Job, who had heard much about God, but who did not know much about his character and nature. Job said: “I had heard of you by the hearing of the ear” (Job 42:5).

The reason for this lack of knowledge about God is that most people do not read the Bible and when they do, they generally read the New Testament. Thus, the God of the Old Testament is an unknown being, a God who is known through sermons and through word of mouth. The God of revelation, the God who revealed himself to the people of Israel and the God who revealed himself supremely in the person of Jesus Christ, remains the great unknown.
