Allshorn: the mystery

Friday, August 25, 2017
    Jesus spoke all these things to the crowd in parables; he did not say anything to them without using a parable. So was fulfilled what was spoken through the prophet: “I will open my mouth in parables, I will utter things hidden since the creation of the world.”
    —Matthew 13:34-35 (NIV)
    Never was a book so full of incredible sayings—everywhere the sense of mystery dominates; unless you feel that mystery, all becomes prosaic—nothing about God is prosaic.
    ... Florence Allshorn (1887-1950), The Notebooks of Florence Allshorn, London: SCM Press, 1957, p. 80 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 13:34-35; John 1:16; Rom. 11:33; Eph. 3:8-11,16; Col. 1:27; 2:2
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, I bow before Your presence in Scripture.
