2 – The Nature, Means, and Limits of Knowing God

When it comes to our knowledge of God, the Bible teaches that the Lord is incomprehensible, which means that it is impossible for a creature to know God fully, perfectly, and completely. We begin our study of the doctrine of God by exploring the implications of God’s incomprehensibility in our knowledge of who God is. This series of lectures in this second module, or course, on systematic theology is devoted to the study of the doctrine of God. The purpose is to explore what the Bible teaches about God Himself, which is to say, what God reveals to us about Himself. In the previous lecture, we considered an introduction to this module. In the present lecture, we will explore the nature, limits, and means of knowing God.
