Where the world comes to study the Bible

What was Before unknown

Uncovering, making plain what was not known before. The word may be used of something God makes known during a church service (1Cor. 14:26), but more usually it has to do with something on a larger scale, like God’s righteousness, wrath (Rom. 1:17-18), or righteous judgment (Rom. 2:5). It may be used to describe a book (Rev. 1:1). God reveals things through the Spirit (1 Cor. 2:10). The gospel is not something people have made up but has been revealed by Christ (Gal. 1:11-12). The fullness of revelation awaits the return of Christ (2 Thess. 1:7; 1 Peter 1:13).
