Christianity is the revelation of the divine Mystery in the person of Christ


'Christianity . . . is the revelation of the divine Mystery in the person of Christ.'
The one, eternal Truth, which cannot be uttered, which cannot be known, is 'symbolized' in the life and death and resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth. At this point in history the veil is pierced, the mystery shines through. At the resurrection of Jesus, human nature was taken up into the divine, time was taken up into eternity. Yet these are only phrases we use to express the inexpressible. It is not by word or thought but by meditation on the Mystery that we can pierce the veil. This is where all human reason fails.'  - Bede Griffiths, in his book, 'Return to the Centre,' p.73
