CQOD: 01/29/06 -- Lewis: Was Palestine the right choice?

Christian Quotation of the Day

January 29, 2006
    But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons.
    -- Galatians 4:4-5 (ESV)

    If we once accept the doctrine of the Incarnation, we must surely be very cautious in suggesting that any circumstance in the culture of first-century Palestine was a hampering or distorting influence upon His teaching. Do we suppose that the scene of God’s earthly life was selected at random?—that some other scene would have served better?
    ... C. S. Lewis (1898-1963), The World’s Last Night, p. 97 [1960]

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, keep me from being seduced by the worldly authorities into doubting Your wisdom in all things.
