Keep this handy for when the Bible is confusing

...the whole of Scripture was indeed written for us, but not all of it is understood by us.

So many truths were written there simply, to nourish children, but some in obscure sayings that they may occupy the strong, since things understood with effort are the more welcome. But some things in it are closed so that when we do not understand them, recognizing the weakness of our blindness, we may advance to humility rather than to intelligence."

Gregory the Great
