Since the Bible is “the words of God expressed in human language”, we might be sensitive to the progressive nature of biblical revelation.

God is slowly, gradually, educating the human race in his ways, and this means that he adapts himself to varying and evolving human modes of understanding.
We cannot therefore, simply isolate one passage, one moment in the Bible and say, without further explanation, this is the final revelation of God”

Father Robert Barron, quoted in “The Church and New Media”, a book by Brandon Vogt
