Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

As for yourselves, see to it first that you are thoroughly familiar with the subject matter; after that it will be easy to learn the grammar. He who sins in the matter of grammar commits a venial sin, but to sin in the subject matter is a mortal sin. Furthermore, I consider knowledge of the subject matter nothing else than a knowledge of the New Testament; for when this is understood well, the entire Scripture of the Old Testament is clear.-- Blessed Martin Luther [Luther's Works 3], S. 3:72]
