Exegesis!

"And now the end has come. So listen to my last piece of advice: exegesis, exegesis and yet more exegesis! Keep to the Word, to the Scripture that has been given us."

Karl Barth, in his final lecture upon getting kicked out of Bonn University, 1935

Quoted in Eberhard Busch, Karl Barth, page 259.
