Melanchthon: On Revelation

“The Church acknowledges God as such an eternal and omnipotent Creator as he has revealed himself to be, and, although we cannot thoroughly understand these mysteries, yet in this life, God wishes this our knowledge and worship of him to be begun and to be distinguished from that which is false: and in his Word he has propounded, by infallible testimonies, a revelation, in which we, as the unborn infant in the maternal womb, drawing nutriment from the umbilical vessels, might sit enclosed and draw the knowledge of God and life from the Word of God, in order to worship him as he has made himself known.” – Philipp Melanchthon
