More than a conception

So, biblically, the knowledge of God is different from having a conception of God by which one defines His nature. It is not a theory about Him. It is not ontological refection upon His being, but it is existential, and if it is a true knowing of Him it will affect you and it will affect Him. It is life in a true relationship with God. So the Old Testament does not try to bring us to a theology that defines the being of God.— Lectures in Old Testament Theology, pages 20-21
