    Colossians 3:19

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

    Anf-01 ii.ii.vi Pg 4
    Gen. ii. 23.

    Envy and strife have overthrown great cities and rooted up mighty nations.


    Anf-02 vi.iii.ii.x Pg 18.1


    Anf-03 v.v.xxxi Pg 15
    See Bible:Gen.4.10">Gen. ii. 21, 23; iii. 5, 19; iv. 10.

    and yet it never intimated that they had been created by God. What will Hermogenes have to answer? That the human limbs must belong to Matter, because they are not specially mentioned as objects of creation? Or are they included in the formation of man? In like manner, the deep and the darkness, and the spirit and the waters, were as members of the heaven and the earth. For in the bodies the limbs were made, in the bodies the limbs too were mentioned. No element but what is a member of that element in which it is contained. But all elements are contained in the heaven and the earth.


    Anf-03 v.viii.vii Pg 5
    Literally, “God-runner.”

    Gen. ii. 23. In the LXX. and in the Eng. ver. there is but the one word “woman.”

    —(“female,” whereby the sex generally; “woman,” hereby a class of the sex, is marked).8876

    8876 These words are regarded by Dr. Routh as spurious, and not without reason. Mr. Dodgson likewise omits them, and refers to de Virg. Vel. cc. 4 and 5.

    So, since at that time the as yet unwedded Eve was called by the word “woman,” that word has been made common even to a virgin.8877

    8877 In de Virg. Vel. 5, Tertullian speaks even more strongly: “And so you have the name, I say not now common, but proper to a virgin; a name which from the beginning a virgin received.”

    Nor is it wonderful that the apostleguided, of course, by the same Spirit by whom, as all the divine Scripture, so that book Genesis, was drawn up—has used the selfsame word in writing “women,” which, by the example of Eve unwedded, is applicable too to a “virgin.” In fact, all the other passages are in consonance herewith. For even by this very fact, that he has not namedvirgins” (as he does in another place8878

    Gen. ii. 23, 24.

    But this (gift of prophecy) only came on him afterwards, when God infused into him the ecstasy, or spiritual quality, in which prophecy consists. If, again, the evil of sin was developed in him, this must not be accounted as a natural disposition: it was rather produced by the instigation of the (old) serpent as far from being incidental to his nature as it was from being material in him, for we have already excluded belief in “Matter.”1655

    1655 See Adv. Hermog. xiii.

    Now, if neither the spiritual element, nor what the heretics call the material element, was properly inherent in him (since, if he had been created out of matter, the germ of evil must have been an integral part of his constitution), it remains that the one only original element of his nature was what is called the animal (the principle of vitality, the soul), which we maintain to be simple and uniform in its condition. Concerning this, it remains for us to inquire whether, as being called natural, it ought to be deemed subject to change. (The heretics whom we have referred to) deny that nature is susceptible of any change,1656

    1656 See Adv. Valentin. xxix.

    in order that they may be able to establish and settle their threefold theory, or “trinity,” in all its characteristics as to the several natures, because “a good tree cannot produce evil fruit, nor a corrupt tree good fruit; and nobody gathers figs of thorns, nor grapes of brambles.”1657

    he experienced the influence of the Spirit.  For there fell upon him that ecstasy, which is the Holy Ghost’s operative virtue of prophecy. And even the evil spirit too is an influence which comes upon a man. Indeed, the Spirit of God not more really “turned Saul into another man,”1569
