John Chrysostom: the mind of the Scriptures

Friday, September 13, 2019
    Feast of John Chrysostom, Bishop of Constantinople, Teacher, 407
    When I came to you, brothers, I did not come with eloquence or superior wisdom as I proclaimed to you the testimony about God. For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.
    —1 Corinthians 2:1,2 (NIV)
    It is not possible ever to exhaust the mind of the Scriptures. It is a well that has no bottom.
    ... St. John Chrysostom (345?-407), The Homilies of S. John Chrysostom on Acts, v. I, Oxford: J. Parker, 1851, XIX, p. 281 (see the book)
    See also Matt. 21:42; Rom. 15:4; Acts 8:26,27; 1 Cor. 2:1,2; 1 Tim. 4:13; 2 Tim. 3:16
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, Your Gospel is unending.
