quote of the day

While discussing a notorious pastor (who will remain unnamed) with my office-mate, the following quote came to mind:

The impatient, who are concerned only about results or practical application, should leave their hands off exegesis. They are of no value for it, nor, when rightly done, is exegesis of any value for them.

–E. Käsemann, Commentary on Romans (1980), viii.

    1. Although, I think if one did question his exegesis–using modern models to do so–he would (once again) invoke the logic of 1 Cor 2.14-15. 😉

      And just to be clear: Paul is not the notorious preacher in question.
