The reason we cannot know God without scripture is not because scripture is or contains God. We cannot know God without scripture because scripture is and defines the identity of God’s people who are the means by which God chooses one for the sake of all. To know God is to be God’s chosen people and to be is to both embrace and transform that which made us what we are. If we are who we have been made by the history that actually happened, knowing anything clearly is accepting and rejecting the stories that wrote us.
