Eating and Drinking in John 6

alastair.adversaria » Eating and Drinking in John 6: "The evocative language of Scripture demands to be read with something other than the emaciated imagination of the scientific exegete. The consciousness that has been drenched in the rich symbolism of the liturgy will be attuned to such things; the consciousness that see symbols merely as secondary appendages to the clear literal message of the text will not. It will fail to appreciate the weight of allusions that constitute most of the text’s message....The Scriptures and the sacramental life of the Church are mutually interpretative. Abandon one and you will gradually lose the other."

More good stuff from Alastair. I'm greatly enjoying his blog at the moment (a recent discovery) and this one.
