Great quote – Scott Bailey on Zwingli’s insanity

Here’s a great quote from Scott Bailey on Zwingli’s Latin translation of Isaiah.

Along with his fresh “rendering” of the Hebrew text, Zwingli also offers “commentary”.  His insights are quite insane and he makes the Prophet harder to understand than a mime with no limbs.

I think I’ll work this into my church history lectures on the Reformation. I’ll just go with, “Zwingli was insane.” I’m sure no one will have a problem with that.

He’s actually spoofing Jim’s earlier today with Zwingli post. See Jim’s response here.
