Chapter Summary

Mysticism is generally conceived as the search of link, of union, of communion, the mystical power and mystical thought being that it should be more essential and intimate in religion and religious thought of all religions, certainly those in the Bible and its theology. The difference is large between ecstasies caused by artificial means and those that occurred without being sought or enforced by any artifice. The fall and the curse which resulted did not destroy the human vocation which is to aim towards god and towards the divine life. It is the sense of mystic collection, the mystic faith of which the Bible is penetrated. Christ replaced the God in the mystical quest of the New Testament and of especially Johannism. The part of symbolism is particularly true in the mystical language and that of the Bible not escaped obviously. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: bible; mystical faith; mystical language; mystical power; mystical quest; New Testament; symbolism
