The Words of the Lord Jesus, Vol. 7 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Words of the Lord Jesus, Vol. 7 The remarks which I purpose to make 'upon Weizsacker's criticism may be advantageously limited to the four main points which lie at the foundation of all his objections and censures: to wit, that there is contradiction in my fundamental principles themselves - that I touch the subordinate historical problem nu skilfully - that my harmonistic system is unscientific and forced - that, finally, the exegesis is far from giving the true and unprejudiced meaning. The objection that there are contradictions, still unremoved, in my theory and system, is one to which every system in theo logy as well as in philosophy is exposed at the hands of every other system. The perpetual conﬂict of my exegesis with that of the predominant school has given me abundant incentive thoroughly to test my fundamental principles, in order to find out what might be wanting to their unity and consistency; but the most conscientious revision of the work for this second edi tion has detected nothing in them fundamentally contradictory. On the contrary, I have become more livingly conscious of the internal truth and harmony of my views while only in a few places it has seemed prudent to render the expression a little plainer, and less open to misunderstanding. Would that the critic above-named had pointed out to me what those contradic tions are, with the same dihuseness which he has expended upon individual questions of exegesis! I seek that information in vain throughout his Review, and am therefore referred to the orthodox theology of the Universities, which his criticism rests upon as a presupposed and unquestioned foundation.
