The Word of God and Revelation
In the Christian world view the Bible is the Word of God and Jesus Christ the Son of God is the essential emphasis of revelation. God has shown Himself equally in the transcribed Word which is the Bible and in the mortal word which is Jesus Christ. (Muehlenberg, 2013) The Christian world view holds that Jesus Christ didn’t just bring a revelation from God the Father, but is He Himself the revelation of God. All Scripture (the entire Bible) is inspired by God, and is authoritative in all it upholds. (Muehlenberg, 2013) The New Testament canon ended of with the book of Revelation, and more statements of inspired literatures are to be excluded. (Muehlenberg, 2013)
The Christian world view holds that God is supreme. God is also individually concerned with and personally intricate in the apprehensions of individuals. (Muehlenberg, 2013)His all-powerfulness is strengthened by His honourable character. His compassion never struggles with His righteousness, virtue and holiness, as there is harmony in His honourable character. God is a Holy Father who loves all people equally and longs to have companionship and intimacy with them. (Muehlenberg, 2013) However, His sanctity demands that we approach Him washed of our iniquity, which the salvation work of Jesus Christ on the cross makes conceivable. (Muehlenberg, 2013) The love of God is an important part of God’s nature. (Muehlenberg, 2013)

God’s ultimate and faultless word to humanity is Jesus
