“Historical criticism, for all its ambiguity over the last three centuries, is from one point of view a natural outgrowth of Protestantism.” (JPPG, 136)

“The evangelical tradition has insisted that the stories about Jesus did happen not in order to explore their kingdom meaning but in order to shore up an endangered belief in scriptural infallibility, which was in turn serving two quite different agendas (modern rationalist apologetic against modern rationalist skepticism, and Protestant freedom over against the pope).” (JPPG, 140) Spot on, eh?
