Through revelation, the divine becomes known to humanity

  • Any type of religious experience can be a revelation
  • A revelation of religious truth can be communicated (either directly or indirectly by God or by gaining insight) to human beings through a religious experience

The content of a revelation is a body of truths usually expressed in statements or propositions

  • For example, Judaism has the revelation of the Law of Moses on Mount Sinai
