Language Is the Room in Which the Food Is

Why do you have to study Greek and Hebrew in theology?

Luther:

Only the Holy Spirit brings the Gospel to the heart, but that happens even so only by means of the languages. We cannot retain the Gospel without the languages. They are the scrabbard in which the knife of the Spirit is placed, the cupboard for the jewelry, the cup for the drink, the room in which the food is.
