    Douay Rheims Bible

    And he brought me into the
    inner court of the house of the Lord: and behold at the door of the temple of the Lord, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men having their backs towards the temple of the Lord, and their faces to the east: and they adored towards the rising of the sun.

    King James Bible - Ezekiel 8:16

    And he brought me into the
    inner court of the LORD's house, and, behold, at the door of the temple of the LORD, between the porch and the altar, were about five and twenty men, with their backs toward the temple of the LORD, and their faces toward the east; and they worshipped the sun toward the east.

    Ezekiel 8:16

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

    Anf-03 v.vii.xxvi Pg 6
    I quote the Ed. London, 1739, Vol. V., p. 249.

    identifies the glory shed upon the Saviour at his baptism, with that mentioned by Ezekiel (Cap. xliii. 2) and adds: “In this same glorious splendor was Christ arrayed first at his Baptism and afterward at his Transfiguration.…By the Holy Ghost’s descending like a Dove, it is not necessary we should understand his descending in the shape or form of a Dove, but that in some glorious form, or appearance, he descended in the same manner as a Dove descends.…Came down from above just as a dove with his wings spread forth is observed to do, and lighted upon our Saviour’s head.” I quote this as the opinion of one of the most learned and orthodox of divines, but not as my own, for I cannot reconcile it, as he strives to do, with St. Luke iii. 22. Compare Justin Martyr, vol. i. p. 243, and note 6, this series. Grotius observes, says Dr. Scott, that in the apocryphal Gospel of the Nazarenes, it is said that at the Baptism of our Lord “a great light shone round about the place.”

    Anf-01 Pg 52
    Isa. vi. 1; Ps. cx. 1.

    others beheld Him coming on the clouds as the Son of man;4293


    Anf-01 Pg 31
    Isa. vi. 5.

    pointing out that man should behold God with his eyes, and hear His voice. In this manner, therefore, did they also see the Son of God as a man conversant with men, while they prophesied what was to happen, saying that He who was not come as yet was present proclaiming also the impassible as subject to suffering, and declaring that He who was then in heaven had descended into the dust of death.4086


    Anf-02 vi.iv.vii.xvi Pg 9.1

    Anf-01 ix.vii.xvi Pg 4
    Ezek. xxxvii. 1, etc.

    And again he says, “Thus saith the Lord, Behold, I will set your graves open, and cause you to come out of your graves, and bring you into the land of Israel; and ye shall know that I am the Lord, when I shall open your sepulchres, that I may bring my people again out of the sepulchres: and I will put my Spirit into you, and ye shall live; and I will place you in your land, and ye shall know that I am the Lord. I have said, and I will do, saith the Lord.”4578


    Anf-03 v.viii.xxix Pg 3
    Ezek. xxxvii. 1–14.

    Anf-03 iv.ix.xiii Pg 41
    This conclusion they had drawn before, and are not said to have drawn, consequently, upon this occasion. See 2 Kings (4 Kings in LXX.) ii. 16.

    What is more manifest than the mystery1419

    1419 Sacramento.

    of this “wood,”—that the obduracy of this world1420

    1420 “Sæculi,” or perhaps here “heathendom.”

    had been sunk in the profundity of error, and is freed in baptism by the “wood” of Christ, that is, of His passion; in order that what had formerly perished through the “tree” in Adam, should be restored through the “tree” in Christ?1421

    1421 For a similar argument, see Anselm’s Cur Deus Homo? l. i. c. iii. sub fin.

    while we, of course, who have succeeded to, and occupy, the room of the prophets, at the present day sustain in the world1422

    1422 Sæculo.

    that treatment which the prophets always suffered on account of divine religion: for some they stoned, some they banished; more, however, they delivered to mortal slaughter,1423

    1423 Mortis necem.

    —a fact which they cannot deny.1424
