John Chrysostom: Listen to Scripture - Not Us

So much for them; now listen to what is said by us - or, rather, not by us but by the divine Scripture; it is not our teaching we cite but that of the Holy Spirit.

- John Chrysostom (around A.D. 347 to around A.D. 407), Sermon 7 on Genesis, in St. John Chrysostom, Eight Sermons on the Book of Genesis, pp. 126-27 (2004), Robert C. Hill translator.
