Summary

This chapter considers the council’s development of the theme of revelation in its documents, with particular attention to The Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation, Dei Verbum. At the heart of the council’s teaching is an account of a God who comes to us in Christ as vulnerable, redeeming love and through the Spirit makes possible friendship with God. It is this saving offer that God reveals through the mediation of Scripture and tradition.
