Epistemic Humility

If only we all could interpret the Bible (and the world) with such humility as Wright describes in this interview.
I think if Luther or Calvin were asked, “Should we have always taken your words on Scripture as final, or should we go back and read Scripture carefully, prayerfully, historically, and lexicographically for ourselves, and if we find that you were wrong on some things, who should we follow?” they would say, without missing a beat: “Follow Scripture, and leave our traditions as monuments to our best efforts.” And I hope those who read me in generations to come will do the same.
