God Discloses Himself

“God discloses Himself in three ways: creation, redemption, and revelation. Creation means the world that is: the wonders of nature, the vicissitudes of history, and the conflict within the human heart between duty and desire. Redemption is the world that ought to be: a world of justice, compassion, the dignity of the individual, and the sanctity of life, the world God had in mind when He created humankind and to which we are still travelling. Revelation is the word that decodes the world. It is the set of instructions – mitzvot – God has given us for reaching Him. Revelation is what happens when we put the world aside and listen to the will of God.”
