Scripture records a number of instances in which God visibly revealed himself to his people, offering a glimpse of his stunning beauty and overwhelming glory. These awe-inspiring manifestations of God’s presence—known as “theophanies”—give us wonderful insights into his character, will, and salvation.
In this collection of biblical expositions, eight prominent Bible teachers explore key passages in which God displayed himself in a spectacular revelation. From the giving of the law at Mt. Sinai to Christ’s glorious transfiguration, the passages examined in this book challenge us to look afresh at our God—that we might truly know, love, and serve him.
“You’ll never understand the whole Bible unless you understand the order: (1) grace, (2) obedience, (3) blessing. It’s not (1) grace, (2) blessing, (3) obedience. Nor is it (1) obedience, (2) grace, (3) blessing.” (Page 17)
“What God is trying to get across is that when an eagle carries you, you don’t do anything. You are lifted up and moved from one place to another. It’s sheer grace. It has nothing at all to do with your performance.” (Page 16)
“He does not say, ‘Obey me, and I’ll save you.’ No, it’s, ‘I’ve saved you; now obey me.’” (Page 17)
“expectations of the Messiah did not have room for the Messiah to suffer and die” (Page 99)
“John Newton said, ‘Everything is needful that he sends. Nothing can be needful that he withholds.’ Think about that for the rest of your life. It’ll do you good.” (Page 16)
