Grammer of Sin

"To the prophets, sin is not an ultimate, irreducible or independent condition, but rather a disturbence in the relationship between God and man; it is an adverb not a noun, a condition that can be surmounted by man's return and God's forgiveness"
- Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, The Prophets
