Quote of the Day #145 - Melancthon W. Jacobus


A quote from Melancthon W. Jacobus:
Theology is the highest of all sciences... Though the direct object of the Scriptures is not to teach science, yet neither is the Bible unscientific— nor has it been found at variance with well-established science in any particular. The Scriptures do not even give us a system of theology, nor aim to teach theology scientifically, but they give us the truths themselves, which must form the only true system and science of theology.
~Melancthon W. Jacobus (Notes, Critical And Explanatory, On The Book Of Genesis)
