C.S. Lewis on the Condecension of God in Revelation

"The same divine humility which decreed that God should become a baby at a peasant woman's breat, and later an arrested field preacher in the hands of the Roman police, decreed also that he should be preached [and, we may add, written about] in a vulgar, prosaic and unliterary language."

C.S. Lewis

Do you agree, Matt?

Yeah, that's what Koine is. I think you have to agree. Yet, even the vulgar words were God's chosen vessel to communicate inspired, inerrant truth.
