IN THE PAST GOD SPOKE
In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, but in these last days He has spoken to us by His Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe…” (Heb 1:1-2)
Such statements prepare us for the study of the theology of the Old Testament as progressive, redemptive revelation. It is revelation because in it God makes Himself known. It is redemptive because God reveals Himself in the act of redeeming us. It is progressive because God makes Himself known by the stages until the full light is revealed in Jesus Christ.
