Revelation

Karl Barth believed that God is unknowable, transcendant, self-revealing and self-imparting. When God reveals Himself to you and gives you His Message, your mere human mind cannot comprehend the infinity of God, so God must also recode his message into something simple enough that your limited human mind can understand.
