What are we as Reformed folk to think of those peoples unreached by the Gospel? I am thinking of those peoples currently living and those that lived during the time of the Old Testament.
There were certainly people living in sub-Saharan Africa, other places in the Middle East, Asia, and Europe that we don't see mentioned in the Bible. And yet we see figures such as Melchizedek, Balaam, etc., who, whether righteous or not, had knowledge of God that isn't really elaborated on in Scripture.
Do the Reformers/contemporary Reformed scholarship have a category for special revelation (ie, saving knowledge of God) outside of the Word?
