Vision and Voice
Revelatory Experience in the Formation of Christian Identity
Mark D. Batluck

Vision and Voice explores the impact of revelatory events (such as visions and voices) upon early Christian self-identity. In the Gospels, revelatory events, like the transfiguration, the voice from heaven in John 12, and Jesusí baptism, burst into the narrative almost gratuitously, without leaving a tangible, lasting impression on those who witness them. Yet from these revelatory experiences there emerged a story of how early Christians came to think of themselves as a community of Jesus followers.

The revelatory events of the Gospels became an invitation to their readers to enter into the experience of Jesusí disciples, to see what they saw, to hear what they heard, reliving the visions and voices remembered by these first witnesses.
