Propositional Revelation, the Only Revelation – D.B. Knox : Anglican Church League, Sydney, Australia

Dr. David Broughton Knox
From all appearances there seems to have been an influence on the Sydney Anglicans regarding Gordon H. Clark's view that Scripture is propositional truth or "propositional revelation". The idea that Scripture is not just a story but logically formulated truth claims which obligate the Christian to believer certain things such as "Christ died for the elect" is expressed in Scriptures such as John 10:11, 15 and John 3:16, 17, 18. The late D. Broughton Knox, a former principal of Moore Theological College in Sydney fully acknowledged the doctrine of the verbal, plenary inspiration of the Holy Scriptures:

THE BIBLICAL VIEW OF REVELATION

The denial of “propositional revelation” is the denial that God reveals Himself to men through the medium of words, that is to say, through meaningful statements and concepts expressed in words; for such is the only sense that can be given to the word “propositional” in this phrase. The denial that revelation is propositional in form, though widespread and repeated nowadays from writer to writer, runs counter to the biblical view of revelation.

The view of the Bible is that revelation is essentially propositional. This may be established in two ways. First, by considering how the Bible describes revelation, and secondly, by examining biblical revelation to see what in fact its nature is.
