Erasmus on Interpretation


"For there are some secret places in the Holy Scriptures into which God has not wished us to penetrate more deeply and, if we try to do so, then the deeper we go, the darker and darker it becomes, by which means we are led to acknowledge the unsearchable majesty of divine wisdom, and the weakness of the human mind."

-Erasmus of Rotterdam, preface to On the Freedom of the Will, 1524.

    Heavy duty quote. My quote for the day-re: biblical study and its personal application into our lives-"Application is worship."-Peter Enns.
