Quote from C.S. Lewis . . .

April 25, 2019

Teaching Through Parable
‘It is perhaps idle to speak here of spirit and letter. There is almost no “letter” in the words of Jesus. Taken by a literalist, He will always prove the most elusive of teachers. Systems cannot keep up with that darting illumination. No net less wide than a man’s whole heart, nor less fine of mesh than love, will hold the sacred Fish.’ ~ C. S. Lewis, – from Reflections on the Psalms

*Indeed the best biblical hermeneutic always includes both the spiritual and literal genre. Though with Paul he often uses allegory, which is the description of one thing under the image of another, and thus is very spiritual! (Fr. R.)
