Scripture as art

“The aim of art is to represent not the outward appearance of things, but their inward significance.” – Aristotle

“For us, divine inspiration does not mean God possesses a man, and simply dictates the inspired text to him. But rather God implants into a man’s mind a general concept. And when God does that, he allows the man to write that in the historical context in which he lives—what we call the Sitz im Leben—where ‘that is the setting in life.’ So a man may have historical inaccuracies, but God allows the man to write with those misunderstandings because what is important and what is inerrant is the theological concept God is trying to get across to mankind.” – Catholic Priest quote from movie Rudy

I saw that! Rudy has always been one of my favorite movies. And I love the interviews with the real Rudy Rudiger – he always seemed like such a good man. I think it’s neat that he joined the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. So many great lessons from his life, and I thought the movie did a great job of capturing them.
