Jaroslav Pelikan on Scripture and Tradition

JaroslavPelikan

From Wikipedia

“For those who believe that you don’t need tradition because you have the Bible, The Christian Tradition has sought to say, ‘You are not entitled to the beliefs you cherish about such things as the Holy Trinity without a sense of what you owe to those who worked this out for you.’ To circumvent Saint Athanasius on the assumption that if you put me alone in a room with the New Testament, I will come up with the doctrine of the Trinity, is naive.”

—Jaroslav Pelikan (a Lutheran at the time)
