On Reading Scripture

Echoes of Scripture in the Letters of Paul,
Richard B Hays, Yale, 1989, page 177

While looking for something else, I came across this rather delightful quote from Richard Hays:

To read Scripture as a book of messianic testimonies that point to the crucified Messiah, Jesus, requires a great deal more ingenuity than to read it as a narration that foreshadows God's purpose to raise up a worldwide community of people who confess his sovereignty and manifest his justice ... Scripture refuses to be assimilated to a one-sidedly christocentric reading.

Isn't that refreshing!
