Reading – according to Chrysostom

John 5:39-40   English Standard Version (ESV)

39  You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; and it is they that bear witness about me, 40 yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.

“…and so, it was with good reason that he said ‘you think,’ because they did not actually listen to what the Scripture had to say, but merely prided themselves in the bare reading.” –       Homilies on the Gospel of John 41:1
