John Owen on the Richness of Scripture

John Owen Posted by Picasa

O heavenly, O blessed depositum of divine grace and goodness!...Hence, although every humble soul may learn and receive from it what is absolutely sufficient for itself on all occasions, with respect to its own duty and eternal welfare, yet the whole church of God, neither jointly nor severally, from the beginning to the end of the world, have been, are, or shall be, able to examine these stores to the bottom, and find out perfectly all the truths, in all their dimensions, concerns, extent, that are contained therein.

Cited in Sinclair B. Ferguson's excellent John Owen on the Christian Life, Banner of Truth Trust, 1987, (p. 189-190).
