Irenaeus on the Clarity of Scripture

'These things fall plainly under our observation, and are clearly and unambiguously in express terms set forth in the Sacred Scriptures...The entire Scriptures - the Prophets and the Gospels - can be clearly, unambiguously and harmoniously understood by all, although all do not believe them.'

Irenaeus, Against Heresies, 2.27.1-2, Ante-Nicene Fathers 1:398.
