Dear with all respect:
The scripture is the supreme text, as far concerned man’s utmost means and ends. This is a proved fact. But scripture is not absolute, God is only absolute. Here we need a pause, if you consider scripture is absolute, for me this dialogue is meaningless, because there can not exist two absolute simultaneously.
Scripture is codified through centuries, but divine revelation was evident from the very beginning of universe, for God revealed himself in nature (Ps 19:1), Again from the very creation of man, revelation was evident in man’s conscious (Rom 1:19-20).Again God himself revealed as human by the incarnation of Blessed Lord (Jn 1:18, 14:8-9) revelation of Holy Ghost is approved by Apostles. Again the History upholds the revelation of God by fulfilling each prophecy foretold.
Dears, at last, if God answers to your prayer will you discard the same saying that not a revelation from God? (Job 33: 14-18). Since revelation is a matter under the absolute discretion of God, he chooses appropriate means. Invoking this principle, when there is contradiction arise regarding a particular substance, it should be decided in the light of reason whether it is a revelation or not. For the conformity of facts, scripture is always preferred.
Thus on Mk 12:35-37, is warranted two possible interpretations, (1) Christ is the son of David, (2) Christ is the Lord of David. Both are proved facts in its own premise and reasonable inference removes the absurdity and inconsistency.
Further explained, none of the statements above intended to limit the power of scripture with regards to man’s means and ends.
Mr. Koshy considers human reason is ugly, Further he replaced ‘reasonable inference’ by the expression of ‘leap by faith’ which denotes ‘speculation’ and disfigured the right intention of the term ‘inference’. The precision of inference always depends upon the facts in test tube, this is not a limitation.
