Abstract

New viewpoints about the omnipotence of God and his impotence
In the Bible there are no statements or definitions of the power of the Almighty God (apart from those in the book of Job). This however, does not relieve the theologian of either the necessity or the responsibility of ordering and systematising the scriptural statements about the power, or lack of power, of God. The role of the Bible in elucidating God to his children would be seriously hampered if the many instances of communication between God Almighty and man were to be overlooked, as these hold the key to our understanding of the true being of the God of the scriptures.
