Martyn Lloyd-Jones – The Spirit or the Bible?

10 Feb

The Bible suggests, therefore, that the Holy Spirit normally speaks to us through the Word. He takes his own Word, he illumines it, and takes our minds and enlightens them, and we are thus made receptive to the Word…. It is not right, therefore, to speak of the Spirit or the Word, but rather of the Spirit and the Word, and especially the Spirit through the Word.

~Martyn Lloyd-Jones~






Historical Theology (Grand Rapids, MI; Zondervan; 2011) p. 97. Excerpted from Authority (Chicago: InterVarsity, 1958), 63-64
