Luther: why we believe
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us.
—1 John 1:1-2 (NIV)
It is for Christ’s sake that we believe in the Scriptures, but it is not for the Scriptures’ sake that we believe in Christ.
... Martin Luther (1483-1546) (see the book)
See also Matt. 22:43; John 1:1; 1 John 1:1-2; 4:1-3
Quiet time reflection:
Lord, You have made Yourself known to us.
