Newbigin: truth in consummation

Monday, January 30, 2012
    Commemoration of Lesslie Newbigin, Bishop, Missionary, Teacher, 1998
    So then, brothers, stand firm and hold to the teachings we passed on to you, whether by word of mouth or by letter.
    —2 Thessalonians 2:15 (NIV)
    If we accept the authority of the Bible, then we understand ourselves as being in via, not possessors of eternal truth, but part of a living tradition of discipleship, on the way to the truth that will be perfectly known on the day when the Author of the story brings it to its end and consummation.
    ... Lesslie Newbigin (1909-1998), Truth and Authority in Modernity, Gracewing Publishing, 1996, p. 70 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, we are blessed as You reveal Your truth.
