Something To Think About

The Price Of Redemption
R. T. France, in his book Jesus and the Old Testament, 1971, p. x, in connection with the related topic of Jesus’ use of the Old Testament (particularly Isaiah 53), said:
 
Perhaps the most revolutionary suggestion that can be made in contemporary theological debate is that the traditional viewpoint is not axiomatically wrong, that even among the heady outpourings of today’s avant-garde exegetes, it may still sometimes be true that the old is better, not because it is old, but because it is rooted in the sheer exegetical common sense which is one of the first casualties of the scholar’s quest for originality.
Indeed, something to think about, I think.
