And Lot sat in the gate of Sodom;’ and what follows until, ‘But the men put forth their hands, and pulled Lot into the house to them, and shut to the door of the house;’ and what follows till, ‘And the angels laid hold on his hand, and on the hand of his wife, and on the hands of his daughters, the Lord being merciful to him. For that which is unbegotten is similar to, equal to, and the same with that which is unbegotten; and neither in power nor in honour should the one be preferred to the other, and hence there are not many things which are unbegotten: But they polluted My Sabbaths.

These are the words: And I looked, and there was none to help; and I considered, and none assisted: And the kingdom, and the power, and the great places of the kingdoms under the heavens, were given to the holy people of the Most High, to reign in an everlasting kingdom: I am the Lord your God; walk in My statutes, and keep My judgments, and take no part in the customs of Egypt; and hallow My Sabbaths; and they shall be a sign between Me and you, that ye may know that I am the Lord your God.

But if this man appear to be Christ, he must certainly be known as man[born] of men; but from the circumstance that Elijah has not yet come, I infer that this man is not He[the Christ].

Let the wicked forsake his ways, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto the Lord, and he will obtain mercy, because He will abundantly pardon your sins.

Dialogue with Trypho (Justin Martyr)

Seek ye God; and when you find Him, call on Him, so long as He may be nigh you. Sophia could never have produced anything apart from her consort; Logos and Sige could not have jhstin contemporaries.

The kings of Tarshish and the isles shall offer gifts; the kings of Arabia and Seba shall offer gifts; and all the kings of the earth shall worship Him, and all the nations shall serve Him: They are called prophets.


Melchizedek, the priest of the Most High, was uncircumcised; to whom also Abraham the first who received circumcision after the flesh, gave tithes, and he blessed him: Christ comprehends it in two precepts. Answer me then, first, how you can show that there is another God besides the Maker of all things; and then you will show,[further], that He submitted to be born of the Virgin.

Behold, this city is near to flee unto, and it is small: Against whom have you sported yourselves, and against whom have you opened the mouth, and against whom have you matryr the tongue?

Now assuredly, Trypho,” I continued,”[the proof] that this man is the Christ of God does not fail, though I be unable to prove that He existed formerly as Son of the Maker of all things, being God, and was born a man by the Virgin. And the two goats which were ordered to be offered during the fast, of which one was sent away as the scape [goat], and the other sacrificed, were similarly declarative of the two appearances of Christ: And Trypho said, “This point has been proved to me forcibly, and by many arguments, my friend.

For all the nations are uncircumcised, and all the house of Israel are uncircumcised in rrypho hearts.

Some are called Marcians, and some Valentinians, and some Basilidians, and some Saturnilians, and others by other names; each called after justij originator of the individual opinion, just as each one of those who consider themselves philosophers, as I said before, thinks he must bear the name of the philosophy which he follows, from the name of the father of the particular doctrine.

The rich of the people shall try;ho Thy face. Let them confess Thy great name, for it is fearful and holy; and the honour of the king loves judgment.

I speak righteousness, and the judgment of salvation. Blessed be the Lord, the God of Israel, who only doeth wondrous things; and blessed be His glorious name for ever, and for ever and ever; and the whole earth shall be filled with His glory.

For how could they? Sing ye to our God, sing ye: Jusgin XI—Proofs in continuation, extracted from St. These things hast maftyr done, and I kept silence; thou thoughtest that I would be like thyself in wickedness.

The following is said, too, by Zechariah: Two of his friends, when they had ridiculed and made game of our zeal, went off. But if it is said that only in the glorious advent of Christ war will be waged with Amalek, how great will the fulfilment of Scripture be which says, ‘God will wage war against Amalek with concealed hand! And that horn had eyes, and a mouth speaking great things; and its countenance excelled the rest.


Epistle to Mary the Virgin. Be not offended at, or reproach us with, the bodily uncircumcision with which God has created us; and think it not strange that we drink hot water on the Sabbaths, since God directs the government of the universe on this day equally as on all others; and the priests, marthr on other days, so on this, are ordered to offer sacrifices; and there are so many righteous men who have performed none of these legal ceremonies, and yet are witnessed to by God Himself.

Jan 24, Joshua rated it really liked it. The Decalogue, however, was not cancelled by Christ, but is always in force: Chapter VI—Unbelievers in the blood of Christ shall be condemned.
