Barth CD I/2 11:11 am
"these very writings, by the very fact that they were canonical, saw to it that they were recognized and proclaimed to be canonical"
"we will not be obedient to the Church but to the Word of God, and therefore in the true sense to the Church"
"an absolute guarantee that... what we know as the Canon is closed... cannot be given by the Church"
"a biblical theology [is] a series of attempted approximations, a collection of individual exegeses. There can never be... a system"
