Plea of the Exegete

Pounding the text.Exegesis Books

Please open.

I have labored over you. I have sifted you. I have crinkled hand and been paper cut, but still you won’t yield.

Make way for me. Make your meaning plain for me. Give up your truth. I am knocking. I am thumbing commentaries. I am reading and re-reading you. Please open the door. Let your light shine out into the street, into my study, into this world.

Break forth!
