3. The Bible

  1. The desire to know God

   Through history, men have looked for God because we found peace, truth and joy only in Him. Man is a religious being. St. Augustine said: “You have made us for yourself, O Lord, and our heart is restless until it rests in you.”

     We know the existence of God through the nature. When we see the stars, plants and the rest of the stars that occupy the sky we see that they are like pieces of a giant clock. They look like they are quiet but they have a very high speed around their orbits without deviating anything.

    Someone has done the parts of that colossal clock; someone has started it and someone preserved it through the time. That someone has to be a gifted being with a greater power than men. That someone is God.

  2. The Revelation

   The man can forget God or know him imperfectly. That is why God has chosen to reveal or say the definitive truths about religion. He made known himself to our first parents: Adam and Eve, the patriarchs, the prophets and the apostles. Finally, God revealed himself fully by sending his own Son, Jesus Christ.

    The real revelations are in the Holy Scripture and in the Tradition. The Holy Scripture (the Bible) is the written Word of God. The Old Testament that has 45 books constitutes it. It tells the facts before the coming of Jesus Christ and the New Testament with 27 books that explain the life of Jesus and the followed years.

    Tradition is the divine revelation entrusted by Christ and the Holy Spirit to the apostles and transmitted orally to the Church.
