Hey meow, it’s time for new episode.
Elevator Pitch/Take away:
God has revealed Himself, not only so we can know that He exists, but so we can know Him intimately through His divine Son. He gave us the Sacred Scriptures, Sacred Tradition, and the Magesterium to effectively pass down this revelation.
Break’n it down:
In today’s podcast we dive into Chapter two: God Come to Meet Man. “By natural reason man can know God” (CCC 50) That’s quite the statement to start this chapter. We go through the revelation and covenants of the old testament, which all build up to Jesus. While, through the prophets, God gradually revealed Himself, and his likeness, God has said everything through His Son Jesus Christ. There will be no further public revelation.
Once we’ve talked a bit about what God has revealed, the Catechism speaks of how it was revealed. The Sacred deposit has been passed down orally, and in writing, through tradition, and through the scriptures. The Magesterium, which is the teaching office of the Church, is the servant of this Sacred deposit. The Magesterium through the Holy Spirit has been entrusted the duty to interpret the Word of God authentically. The Magesterium, Sacred Tradition, and Sacred Scriptures, are a three legged stool; one cannot stand without the other two.
