Too often we prefer "timeless truths" and "principles" to the work of God; the former we can file away for the future when it's convenient, the latter can pass us by if we're unprepared or unwilling to receive.

A tradition of any complexity will have some participants that are more informed or articulate about that tradition. Each tradition therefore needs an education system whereby participants (a) discern their need to learn more, and (b) can gain in their knowledge and articulacy.

Alasdair MacIntyre says the agreements that make a tradition what it is are continually redefined through internal & external conflict. Any tradition forgets either of these at its peril.

"Happy is the expositor who can have at least relative certainty at any point! No one should boast that he has said the last word, that he has spoken with absolute accuracy or authority, on any text. No one should laud another for so doing. The more definitely an expositor thinks he has found or not found this or that in a text, the more sharply he should let the question be put to him whether he has not been too clever and found too much, or too obtuse and found too little; whether he has not found what is not there, or perhaps failed to find what is." Karl Barth on exegetical humility.

"The Jews are the original stem, while we poor Gentiles are ingrafted branches. If this unity is broken either on the one side or the other, it is no longer the Church of Jesus Christ." Karl Barth

"Was not [human] sin uncovered and brought to light in its whole horror and shame only when, according to God's just judgment, no less was needed than the sacrifice of His own Son to free [people] from it?" Karl Barth, working from solution to plight, rather than the other way around.
