Excerpt from The Consciousness of Jesus
Christ that the evangel was uttered, but, rather, that men should receive Christ and live into his conscious being, as he in the house of his humanity lived into the con scious life of the Father. A too great ex hibit of the detail of t... he earthly walk of Jesus would have defeated the exclusive ends of that which was written that, read ing, we might believe, and that, believing, we might be saved. A strictly scientific study of the consciousness of Jesus would fall short of the ends at which we aim. Every thoughtful student of modern-day theological literature has noted the too fre quent absence of both the spirit and the letter Of subjective inquiry from the methods of criticism. The critics have contented themselves with examining the aspects of the Old and New Testament Scriptures rather than looking deeply into the spirit and pur pose of their writers. Stress is laid upon his torical accidents, textual peculiarities and difficulties, rather than upon the tremendous facts symbolized by, and latent in, the writ ings, whose peculiarities and difficulties are.
