“The allegorical sense builds up the virtue of faith.” (Page 8)
“The first is the allegorical sense, which unveils the spiritual and prophetic meaning of biblical history. Allegorical interpretations thus reveal how persons, events, and institutions of Scripture can point beyond themselves toward greater mysteries yet to come (OT) or display the fruits of mysteries already revealed (NT).” (Page 8)
“First, we must read Scripture according to its literal sense,” (Page 8)
“Christ conquered the devil with the same weapons the devil used against us: a virgin, a tree, and death. These tokens of our demise have now become the tokens of our victory. Instead of Eve, there is Mary; instead of the tree of knowledge, there is the wood of the Cross; and instead of Adam’s death, there is the death of Christ (St. John Chrysostom, On the Cemetery and the Cross).” (Page 22)
