Owen on the timelessness of Scripture

John_Owen_by_John_Greenhill

“In the writing of Holy Scripture, the Holy Spirit had respect unto the various states and conditions of the church. It was not given for the use of one age or season only but for all generations. For a guide of faith and obedience from the beginning of the world to the end of it. The principle end of scripture is to beget in the minds of men, faith, fear, obedience, and reverence to God to make them holy and righteous unto this end – every truth is disposed of in the scripture as it ought to be. In the depths and shallows of God the lamb may wade and the elephant may swim.”
