You look down your critical microscope at the New Testament text with a view to describing the religious life of the first-century Christians, and you find that God is looking back at you through the microscope and declaring you to be a sinner.

CK Barrett, quoted in Bockmuehl, Seeing the Word (Grand Rapids: Baker, 2006), p. 147.
