Patristic Quote of the Day

And like as if you should take any part from the side of an animal, even in that part you would find all the things out of which the whole is composed — nerves and veins, bones, arteries, and blood, and a sample, as one might say, of the whole lump — so likewise with regard to the Scriptures; in each portion of what is there stated, one may see the connection with the whole clearly appearing.—St. John Chrysostom, Homily 1 on St. Matt.
