(SPE·cial REV·e·LA·tion). In Christian theology, God's disclosure or manifestation to humans of the knowledge of God's nature and will.
Knowledge of God supplied directly to humanity. For modern Christians this generally refers to scripture.
God self-disclosure in history through the Scriptures and through the life of Jesus Christ.
God has told people about himself in the Bible, a specific and detailed revelation of himself, which gives us details regarding his person and what he expects of people. It is not complete revelation, though: natural revelation is complementary and completes his revelation of himself.
God's divine self-revelation evidenced specifically in salvation history and culminating in the incarnation of Jesus Christ (coming to earth as a man)
Special revelation is a theological term that states a belief that knowledge of God and of spiritual matters can be discovered through supernatural means, such as miracles or the scriptures, a disclosure of God's truth through means other than through man's reason.
