PRUD. What do you think of the Bible?
MATT. It is the holy Word of God.
PRUD. Is there nothing written therein but what you understand?
MATT. Yes. A great deal.
PRUD. What do you do when you meet with such places therein that you do not understand?
MATT. I think God is wiser than I. I pray also that He will please to let me know all therein that He knows will be for my good.This is an extract from the second part of Pilgrim's Progress, by John Bunyan (1684, public domain). Matthew, the oldest son of Christian (the Pilgrim) and Christiana, is quizzed here by Prudence.
