Gerald Bray on true theologians

Another gem from Gerald Bray. Very timely as well, as I am writing New Testament exam tomorrow and often in the midst of academics we theological students tend to lose sight of our true task. This has meant much to me tonight:

“True theologians are sheep who hear their Shepherd’s voice and interpret his words for the benefit of the rest of the flock. In this task, theology will continue until the time comes when it will no longer be needed. When that happens we shall know all things, and be enfolded forever in the unchanging and all-encompassing love of God.”

– Gerald Bray, God is Love: A Biblical and Systematic Theology, p. 27
