Why revelation is necessary

We sometimes tend to think of revelation as something mystical, or mysterious, or very unlikely today. Yet the word simply means the disclosing of what was unseen, the making known of what was concealed.

Christ Jesus throughout his teaching talked about things hidden to mortal perceptions—the kingdom of heaven, for instance. When he spoke of the heavenly kingdom, he was not putting forward a religious concept formulated by the human mind. He was speaking of something he saw that was real, actual, and spiritual—something that really exists. He confirmed what he taught by the healing power he demonstrated: his mighty works, culminating in his own resurrection, bore witness to an all-embracing reality known to him but unperceived by the fleshly senses.
