God Reveals Himself to & through His Chosen People

St. Paul wrote to the church at Ephesus:

“Now, therefore, you are no longer strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints and members of the household of God, having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself  being the chief corner stone, in whom the whole building, being joined together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”  (Ephesians 2:18-22)

Fr. George Florovsky wrote:

“Revelation is preserved in the Church. It was given by God to the Church, not to separate individuals, just as in the Old Testament ‘the words of God’ were entrusted not to individuals but to the People of God. Revelation is given, and is accessible, only in the Church; that is, only through life in the Church, through living and actual belonging to the mystical organism of the Body of Christ. This means that genuine knowledge is only possible in the element of Tradition.” Creation and Redemption, pg. 36)
