Patristic Quote of the Day
These are fountains of salvation, that they who thirst may be satisfied with the living words they contain. In these alone is proclaimed the doctrine of godliness. Let no man add to these, neither let him take ought from these. For concerning these the Lord put to shame the Sadducees, and said, 'You err, not knowing the Scriptures.' And He reproved the Jews, saying, 'Search the Scriptures, for these are they that testify of Me Matthew 22:29; John 5:39.' - St. Athanasius, Letter 39 (After he listed out the Canon - basically the so-called Protestant canon, the exceptions being excluding Esther, and including Baruch).
