1. As to its substance. We may expect this later revelation not to contradict, but to confirm and enlarge, the knowledge of God, which we derive from nature, while it remedies the defects of natural religion and throws light upon its problems.
Isaiah?s appeal is to God?s previous communications of truth: <230820>Isaiah 8:20 ? ?To the law and to the testimony! If they speak not according to this word, surely there is no morning for them.? And Malachi follows the example of Isaiah; <390404>Malachi 4:4 ? ?Remember ye the Law of Moses my servant.? Our Lord himself based his claims upon the former utterances of God: <422427>Luke 24:27 ? beginning from Moses and from all the prophets, he interpreted to them in all the scriptures the things concerning himself?
2. As to its method. We may expect it to follow God?s methods of procedure in other communications of truth.
