“And likewise where we can confound your false doctrine with authentic and manifest scripture, there need we to do no miracle. We bring God’s testament, confirmed with miracles, for all that we do; and ye ought to require no more of us.
“And in like manner do ye first give us authentic scripture for your doctrine. If ye have no scripture, come forth and preach your doctrine, and confirm it with a miracle. And then if we bring not authentic scripture against you, or confound your miracle with a greater, as Moses did the sorcerers of Egypt, we will believe you.”
William Tyndale, An Answer to Sir Thomas More’s Dialogue (1531)
