Words for the Day

In the authentic idea of revelation, the three ‘actual’ elements of the All – God world man – emerge from themselves, belong to one another, and meet one another, and this idea is in the final analysis effective in opposing the assertion of the caprice of the Creator. And so it was precisely in this point that Maimonides, the great theoretician of revelation, … asserted God’s creativity as [God’s] essential attribute.
