Timothy Gombis on “What Makes a good Biblical Scholar or Theologian?”

Humility: Submit your work on the text and invite the critique and examination of others without defensiveness. Others help to improve your contribution.

Humility reminds you that you are not your work. If it stands or falls, you are still loved by God.

Humility makes you immensely happy!

~Timothy Gombis, Professor of New Testament, Grand Rapids Theological Seminary, Cornerstone University
