Abstract

Given the high probability that God of the Bible exists, this chapter explores core features or characteristics of God which are revealed there. These are summed up by the terms “transcendence” and “personhood”. While God transcends, or remains separate from his creation, He takes repeated initiative revealing himself. The Bible is largely a series of accounts of these revelations. While terms such as creator, ruler and judge provide insight, the ultimate revelation of what God is like is found in the person of Jesus.
