Who Said That?

Here's a chance to practice your theological German and ponder an old quote. Who said:

"Das ist sein Siegen und Herrschen."

Ooh- a quiz! Well, I've only read parts of it in English, but isn't it Schweitzer's quote about Jesus throwing himself on the wheel of history?

It sounds like it could be Käsemann.

I'm not sure what you would be doing with a German original of K's work, though, as I think almost all of his stuff has been translated. So that speaks against this stab. But I'll stick with K.
