Chapter 1 explored Barth's understanding of the relationship between the event of hearing a command of God and ethical reasoning. Chapter 2 sought to lay bare the three-dimensional structure of Barth's own ‘special’ ethics, and to gain some sense of the ‘system’ as a dynamic whole. This chapter turns to the first of three immediate sources — or, relatively speaking, authorities — for ethics that aspire to sharpen our hearing of God's command: namely, Scripture.

Keywords: Karl Barth; command of God; Scripture; ethics; Bible
