2 comments on “Calvin on the Interpretation of Scripture

  1. Now that is definitely an ear full for the modern reader. Scripture is of the utmost importance. Be clear on explaining the essentials and don’t be too wordy so as to put the hearers to sleep. I believe that is what Calvin is saying.

    A clear and concise interpretation of Calvin’s comments 😉

    Although modern readers may have difficulty with some of the words Calvin uses, thus making the quote not very “lucid,” the reality is that the English language has become more and more vague. I think this is because people read far less in today’s culture, and have much smaller vocabularies and therefore less words to draw upon to make their points especially clear.
