An Ineffable Mystery
by Albert Schweitzer

We can find no designation which expresses what he is for us. He comes to us as One unknown, without a name, by the lake-side he came to those who knew him not. He speaks to us the same word: ‘Follow thou me!’ and sets us to the tasks which he has to fulfill for our time. He commands. And to those who obey him, whether they be wise or simple, he will reveal himself in the toils, the conflicts, the sufferings which they shall pass through in his fellowship, and, as an ineffable mystery, they shall learn in their own experience who he is.”

from: The Quest of the Historical Jesus
Albert Schweitzer (1875-1965)
