    Colossians 1:2

    Early Christian Commentary - (A.D. 100 - A.D. 325)

    Npnf-201 iii.vii.xxvi Pg 29


    Anf-01 ix.vi.xxii Pg 2
    Gal. iii. 5–9; Gen. xii. 3.

    For which [reasons the apostle] declared that this man was not only the prophet of faith, but also the father of those who from among the Gentiles believe in Jesus Christ, because his faith and ours are one and the same: for he believed in things future, as if they were already accomplished, because of the promise of God; and in like manner do we also, because of the promise of God, behold through faith that inheritance [laid up for us] in the [future] kingdom.


    Anf-03 v.iv.vi.iii Pg 48
    Gal. iii. 7, 9, 29.

    and after mentioning him he expressly called us “children of faith” also. But how are we children of faith? and of whose faith, if not Abraham’s? For since “Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness;”5313

    5313


    Anf-03 v.iv.vi.iv Pg 3
    This apparent quotation is in fact a patching together of two sentences from Gal. iii. 15 and iv. 3 (Fr. Junius). “If I may be allowed to guess from the manner in which Tertullian expresseth himself, I should imagine that Marcion erased the whole of chap. iii. after the word λέγω in ver. 15, and the beginning of chap. iv., until you come to the word ὅτε in ver. 3. Then the words will be connected thus: ‘Brethren, I speak after the manner of men…when we were children we were in bondage under the elements of the world; but when the fulness of time was come, God sent forth His Son.’ This is precisely what the argument of Tertullian requires, and they are the very words which he connects together” (Lardner, Hist. of Heretics, x. 43). Dr. Lardner, touching Marcion’s omissions in this chap. iii. of the Epistle to the Galatians, says: “He omitted vers. 6, 7, 8, in order to get rid of the mention of Abraham, and of the gospel having been preached to him.” This he said after St. Jerome, and then adds: “He ought also to have omitted part of ver. 9, σὺν τῷ πιστῷ ᾽Αβραάμ, which seems to have been the case, according to T.’s manner of stating the argument against him” (Works, History of Heretics, x. 43).

    This, however, was not said “after the manner of men.” For there is no figure5323

    5323 Exemplum.

    here, but literal truth. For (with respect to the latter clause of this passage), what child (in the sense, that is, in which the Gentiles are children) is not in bondage to the elements of the world, which he looks up to5324

    5324 Suspicit.

    in the light of a god? With regard, however, to the former clause, there was a figure (as the apostle wrote it); because after he had said, “I speak after the manner of men,” he adds), “Though it be but a man’s covenant, no man disannulleth, or addeth thereto.”5325

    5325


    Anf-03 v.iv.vi.iv Pg 9
    So, instead of pursuing the contents of chap. iii., he proceeds to such of chap. iv. as Marcion reserved.

    “But when the fulness of time was come, God sent forth His Son”5329

    5329


    Anf-01 v.ii.ix Pg 14
    Eph. i. 1.

    I rejoice, therefore, over you, that ye do not give heed to vanity, and love nothing according to the flesh, but according to God.
