From time to time I like to share interesting excerpts from what I’m reading. Today’s is a short one from Richard J. Dillon, referring to Luke 1:1-4:
Gospel-narrative, whether of the original witnesses, “the many,” or Luke himself, in no case furnished a kind of historical proof that rescued Christian faith from the ambiguities and risks of its object.
