John Owen on Scripture

“Three things are necessary, that we may have the benefit and comfort of divine light and truth – 1st, The fullness of its revelation; 2ndly, The infallibility of it; and, 3rdly, The authority from whence it doth proceed. If either of these be wanting, we cannot attain unto stability and assurance in the faith of it, or obedience unto it.” – John Owen, The Person of Christ, Works, 1.94
