“The notion that we read the New Testament exactly as the early Christians did, without any weight of tradition coloring our interpretation, is an illusion. It is also a dangerous illusion, for it tends to absolutize our interpretation, confusing it with the Word of God.”
Justo L. González, The Story of Christianity: Volume 1

“History is not the pure past; history is a past interpreted from the present of the historian.”
Justo L. González, The Story of Christianity: Volume 1

“If this were simply a story about the past, it would be appropriate to write, at the conclusion of Acts 28 as at the conclusion of a film, "The End." But since the story is unfinished, it is more appropriate to conclude it with, "RSVP," like an invitation that awaits a response. This is what Luke demands from us: not satisfied curiosity about the past, but a response here and now. RSVP!”
Justo L. González, The Story Luke Tells: Luke's Unique Witness to the Gospel
