John Stott quotes A. B. Bruce from 100 years ago:
Bruce sums it up well when he writes that we are to 'show when tempted to hide' and 'hide when tempted to show.'--A. B. Bruce, Commentary on the Synoptic Gospels (London: Hodder, 1897), 116; quoted in John Stott, The Sermon on the Mount (Downers Grove: InterVarsity, 2000), 69
