“The originality of Jesus was found not so much in the novelty of his ideas (for most of them were already present in the tradition of his people) but in the way he brought them together, developed and harmonized them and above all made them real in his own life with such unparalleled intensity.”
(Bokenkotter Thomas. A Concise History of the Catholic Church. NY: Image Books, 2005)
I always believed in this principle. No one offers new ideas rather the newness of the idea is in its formation and the way of expression.
