1) Theology of Creation

God has revealed everything He wanted to reveal to us about who He is and what He intends for our lives. God’s revelation of Himself comes to us in three ways: Scripture or the Bible, Tradition especially the liturgy of the Church the Mass and the sacraments and lastly the Magisterium or the Church’s teachings, such as its dogmas and creeds.

Verses six and nine of Psalm 33 affirm this classic point of view: “By the word of the Lord the heavens were made; And by the breath of His mouth all their hosts. For He spoke, and it was done; He commanded and it stood fast.”

It is even more than a theological and prophetic backdrop to the New Testament. Beyond these, the Old Testament is inspired revelation of the very nature, character, and works of God. As renowned Old Testament scholar
Bruce Waltke writes in the preface of this book, the Old Testament’s every sentence is fraught with
