The Word and God’s World Governance.

If the attitude to the context of the texts which we are considering is the attitude of the original freedom and constraint, there can be no doubt at least that we shall always see in history a history of their own self-exegesis. And this means that we shall never look upon the prophets and apostles as merely objects for the study and assessment of later readers; they will always be living, acting, speaking subjects on their own account. The fact they have spoken once does not mean they have ceased to speak. On the contrary, they take up and deliver the word afresh in every age and to every people, at every cultural level and to every individual. KBCD III/3 p.202
