Quote of the Day – Justin Martyr

“For these words have not been fashionably arranged by me, nor embellished by human technique, but rather David sang them, Isaiah preached them, Zechariah heralded them, Moses recorded them. Do you recognize them Trypho? They are stored up in your Scriptures, or rather not in yours but in ours, for we are obedient to them, but when you read them, you do not understand the “mind” in them [ὑμεῖς δὲ ἀναγινώσκοντες οὐ νοεῖτε τὸν ἐν αὐτοῖς νοῦν].”

(Justin Martyr, Dial. 29.2; trans. Matthew W. Bates, ‘Close-Minded Hermeneutics? A Proposed Alternative Translation for Luke 24:45’, JBL 129, no. 3 (2010): 537–557)
