To argue that the Sun, cannot be known to be the Sun, or the great meanes of communicating external light unto the World, because blind men cannot see it, nor do know any more of it, then they are told will scarce be admitted; nor doth it in the least impeach the Efficacy of the light pleaded for, that men stupidly blind cannot comprehend it. Joh. 1. 5.

John Owen, Of the divine original, authority, self-evidencing light, and power of the Scriptures. With an answer to that enquiry, how we know the Scriptures to be the Word of God. Also a vindication of the purity and integrity of the Hebrew and Greek texts of the Old and New Testament; in some considerations on the prolegomena, & appendix to the late Biblia Polyglotta. Whereunto are subjoined some exercitations about the nature and perfection of the Scripture, the right of interpretation, internal Light, revelation, &c. (Oxford: though. Robinson, 1659), p. 77.
