Mystery's Self-Communication

How does Numinous Presence, Ultimate Mystery, get through to us limited human beings in our very material world?  It was not through God's finger writing on stone tablets.  Numinous Presence chose the Israelites in the desert and in  exile to begin a dynamic process involving centuries of telling stories, writing them down, later editing, copying in scrolls, and, finally, as a community, determining which of these belonged on the approved list of sacred writings, Scripture.  We have the Jewish people to thank for being receptive to this Divine process and for giving the world a glimpse of Who is calling us into loving relationship.
