Luther quotes

“The Holy Scripture is God's Word, written and, so to speak, lettered and put into the form of a letter (gebuchstabet und in Buchstaben gebildet), just as Christ, the eternal Word of God, is clothed in humanity. And men regard and treated the written Word of God in this world just as they to Christ. It is a worm and notebook compared with other books; for the honor people accord other writings of men by studying, reading, preaching, keeping, and using them they do not accord Scripture.” Martin Luther, comment on Psalm 22:6, Plass 1:71, SL 9:1770
