Anf-02 vi.iv.vi.xvi Pg 57.2
Anf-03 v.iv.vi.iv Pg 37 does not the very phrase indicate that He is the Liberator who was once the Master? For Galba himself never liberated slaves which were not his own, even when about to restore free men to their liberty.5356
Gal. v. 1.
5356 Tertullian, in his terse style, takes the case of the emperor, as the highest potentate, who, if any, might make free with his power. He seizes the moment when Galba was saluted emperor on Nero’s death, and was the means of delivering so many out of the hands of the tyrant, in order to sharpen the point of his illustration. By Him, therefore, will liberty be bestowed, at whose command lay the enslaving power of the law. And very properly. It was not meet that those who had received liberty should be “entangled again with the yoke of bondage”5357
Anf-03 v.iv.vi.iv Pg 39—that is, of the law; now that the Psalm had its prophecy accomplished: “Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us, since the rulers have gathered themselves together against the Lord and against His Christ.”5358
Gal. v. 1.
Anf-03 iv.ix.iv Pg 4 Whence we (Christians) understand that we still more ought to observe a sabbath from all “servile work”1188
