Quote of the Day

“Trying to study the Bible without knowing the original languages is like trying to play Beethoven on a mouth organ. It’s just not going to be hugely successful. You might be able to get something of the tune, but it won’t be exactly what the guy had in mind.”  — NT Wright

[Believe me, no one is more shocked than I that he said something so intelligent and correct.  But when a guy’s right, he’s right and there’s nothing you can do about it.  Via Jim Barr on FB].
