From: Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary

 Revelation
    an uncovering, a bringing to light of that which had been
    previously wholly hidden or only obscurely seen. God has been
    pleased in various ways and at different times (Heb. 1:1) to
    make a supernatural revelation of himself and his purposes and
    plans, which, under the guidance of his Spirit, has been
    committed to writing. (See WORD OF GOD.) The
    Scriptures are not merely the "record" of revelation; they are
    the revelation itself in a written form, in order to the
    accurate presevation and propagation of the truth.
      Revelation and inspiration differ. Revelation is the
    supernatural communication of truth to the mind; inspiration
    (q.v.) secures to the teacher or writer infallibility in
    communicating that truth to others. It renders its subject the
    spokesman or prophet of God in such a sense that everything he
    asserts to be true, whether fact or doctrine or moral principle,
    is true, infallibly true.
