Schweitzer Quote

by

I’ve immersed myself in historical Jesus studies over the last week with the help of this podcast series, which I highly recommend. Here’s a great quote from Albert Schweitzer who truly revolutionized historical Jesus studies:

“He comes to us as One unknown, without a name, as of old, by the lake-side, He came to those men who knew Him not. He speaks to us the same word: “Follow thou me!” and sets us to the tasks that He has to fulfil for our time. He commands. And those who obey, whether they be wise or simple, He will reveal Himself in the toils, the conflicts, the sufferings that they shall pass through in his fellowship, and, as an ineffable mystery, they shall learn in their own experience Who He is” (The Quest of the Historical Jesus, 403).
