Jesus said, â€śThis is eternal life, that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ whom You have sentâ€ť (John 17:3). But how can we know Him? Through Scripture. This comes from Him â€“ revelation, to the prophets and apostles â€“ inspiration, and then to us â€“ illumination for understanding. All of this is the work of the Holy Spirit who brings to light after darkness.
