Poythress on Progressive Revelation

“So no simple formula is going to provide all the answers to interpreting
divine communication at earlier and later times. The most
basic principle is the principle of knowing God. God is deep, infinitely
deep. Is he also inaccessible? No. God made us and has come
to us to save us in Christ. His words are therefore accessible through
the mediation of Christ in the power of the Holy Spirit—the Spirit
of Christ whom the ascended Jesus has poured out on his people
(Acts 2:33). Knowing God is truly the path of ‘the light of dawn,
which shines brighter and brighter until full da’” (Prov 4:18). Or, as
Jesus says, ‘I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to
the Father except through me’ (John 14:6).”
