Barth CD I/2 8:50 am
"we distinguish the Bible as such from revelation. A witness is not absolutely identical with that to which it witnesses"
"there is no point in ignoring the writtenness of Holy Writ for the sake of its holiness, its humanity for the sake of its divinity"
"There is a notion that complete impartiality is the most fitting disposition for true exegesis... [this notion is] merely comical"
