Rudolf Schnackenburg and the Quote of the Day

No one who approaches the figure of Jesus with the cool distance of the historian can answer the question about the mystery of the person of Jesus, the radiant energy that emanates from him, the living power of his words and deeds, the magnetic force of his suffering and dying.
(Rudolf Schnackenburg, Jesus in the Gospels: A Biblical Christology [Louisville: Westminster John Knox Press, 1995]), 4.
