Barth Bite for Tuesday December 1, 2015

“Jesus Christ Himself as the Gospel, revealed, proclaimed, offered to man and affecting him, is always clothed in the Law, hidden in the manger and swaddling clothes of the commandments, His divine commanding. We cannot believe or have Him except in this form. It is in this form, and only in this form, that He is powerful and true.” – Karl Barth, Church Dogmatics, Volume II.2, page 653
