‘You speak also in your silence’: The Silence of God in the Bible


‘In the beginning was the Word/en archē ēn ho logos’ are the opening words of the prologue of the gospel of John. But here, like Goethe’s Faust, we should perhaps pause.2 This is the problem: does the Word reveal God or does Silence reveal God? This question is like many others about God: is it power that reveals God or impotence? Does God reveal himself in dazzling light or in the dark night of the cross?
