A Voice from the Past - Calvin

In our daily reading we fall in with many obscure passages which convict us of ignorance. With this curb God keeps us modest, assigning to each a measure of faith, that every teacher, however excellent, may still be disposed to learn.

John Calvin, 1509-1564, Institutes of the Christian Religion, Book III, Chapter II, 4 (translated by Henry Beveridge, Wm. B. Eerdmans Publishing, 1975, Vol.1, pp. 471, 472)

Is this the right approach to Scripture? Is this the right approach to learning?
