    Job 36:31

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

    Anf-01 ix.iv.x Pg 2
    Gen. xv. 5.

    and Him who, by His Son Christ Jesus, has called us to the knowledge of Himself, from the worship of stones, so that those who were not a people were made a people, and she beloved who was not beloved3374


    Anf-01 Pg 8
    Gen. xv. 5.

    as John the Baptist says: “For God is able from these stones to raise up children unto Abraham.”3873


    Anf-01 ii.ii.x Pg 5
    Gen. xv. 5, 6; Rom. iv. 3.

    On account of his faith and hospitality, a son was given him in his old age; and in the exercise of obedience, he offered him as a sacrifice to God on one of the mountains which He showed him.49


    Anf-01 viii.iv.xcvii Pg 2
    Ps. iii. 4, 5.

    And Isaiah likewise mentions concerning Him the manner in which He would die, thus: ‘I have spread out My hands unto a people disobedient, and gainsaying, that walk in a way which is not good.’2321


    Anf-03 v.iv.v.xiii Pg 12
    Ps. iii. 4.

    You have a representation of the name; you have the action of the Evangelizer; you have a mountain for the site; and the night as the time; and the sound of a voice; and the audience of the Father: you have, (in short,) the Christ of the prophets. But why was it that He chose twelve apostles,3914


    Anf-03 v.iv.iii.xix Pg 13
    Comp. Ps. iv. 4.

    walk not in the counsel of the ungodly; nor stand in the way of sinners; nor sit in the seat of the scornful.”2933


    Anf-03 Pg 16
    Ps. iv. 4.

    expresses his meaning, (he says,) “Be ye angry, and sin not;”6017

    6017 104:19

    Anf-03 v.iv.iii.iii Pg 11
    Gen. i. 14.

    Previous, then, to this temporal course, (the goodness) which created time had not time; nor before that beginning which the same goodness originated, had it a beginning.  Being therefore without all order of a beginning, and all mode of time, it will be reckoned to possess an age, measureless in extent2734

    2734 Immensa.

    and endless in duration;2735

    2735 Interminabili.

    nor will it be possible to regard it as a sudden or adventitious or impulsive emotion, because it has nothing to occasion such an estimate of itself; in other words, no sort of temporal sequence.  It must therefore be accounted an eternal attribute, inbred in God,2736

    2736 Deo ingenita “Natural to,” or “inherent in.”

    and everlasting,2737

    2737 Perpetua. [Truly, a sublime Theodicy.]

    and on this account worthy of the Divine Being, putting to shame for ever2738

    2738 Suffundens jam hinc.

    the benevolence of Marcion’s god, subsequent as he is to (I will not say) all beginnings and times, but to the very malignity of the Creator, if indeed malignity could possibly have been found in goodness.

    Anf-03 Pg 12
    Gen. i. 14, inexactly quoted.

    it clearly follows that the ages belong to the Creator, and that nothing of what was fore-ordained before the ages can be said to be the property of any other being than Him who claims the ages also as His own. Else let Marcion show that the ages belong to his god. He must then also claim the world itself for him; for it is in it that the ages are reckoned, the vessel as it were5436

    5436 Quodammodo.

    of the times, as well as the signs thereof, or their order. But he has no such demonstration to show us. I go back therefore to the point, and ask him this question: Why did (his god) fore-ordain our glory before the ages of the Creator? I could understand his having predetermined it before the ages, if he had revealed it at the commencement of time.5437

    5437 Introductione sæculi.

    But when he does this almost at the very expiration of all the ages5438

    5438 Pæne jam totis sæculis prodactis.

    of the Creator, his predestination before the ages, and not rather within the ages, was in vain, because he did not mean to make any revelation of his purpose until the ages had almost run out their course. For it is wholly inconsistent in him to be so forward in planning purposes, who is so backward in revealing them.

    Anf-03 v.ix.xii Pg 10
    Gen. i. 14; 16.

    But all the rest of the created things did He in like manner make, who made the former ones—I mean the Word of God, “through whom all things were made, and without whom nothing was made.”7902


    Anf-01 viii.iv.cxxi Pg 3
    So Justin concludes from Deut. iv. 19; comp. chap. lv. [The explanation is not very difficult (see Rom. i. 28), but the language of Justin is unguarded.]

    as it is written, but no one ever was seen to endure death on account of his faith in the sun; but for the name of Jesus you may see men of every nation who have endured and do endure all sufferings, rather than deny Him. For the word of His truth and wisdom is more ardent and more light-giving than the rays of the sun, and sinks down into the depths of heart and mind. Hence also the Scripture said, ‘His name shall rise up above the sun.’ And again, Zechariah says, ‘His name is the East.’2414


    Anf-01 Pg 2
    Deut. iv. 19, an apparent [i.e., evident] misinterpretation of the passage. [But see St. John x. 33–36.]

    God has given to the nations to worship as gods; and oftentimes the prophets, employing2120

    2120 Or, “misusing.”

    this manner of speech, say that ‘thy God is a God of gods, and a Lord of lords,’ adding frequently, ‘the great and strong and terrible [God].’ For such expressions are used, not as if they really were gods, but because the Scripture is teaching us that the true God, who made all things, is Lord alone of those who are reputed gods and lords. And in order that the Holy Spirit may convince [us] of this, He said by the holy David, ‘The gods of the nations, reputed gods, are idols of demons, and not gods;’2121


    Anf-01 ix.iv.vii Pg 32
    Deut. iv. 19.

    And Moses himself, being a man of God, was indeed given as a god before Pharaoh;3356


    Anf-02 iv.ii.ii.xxxv Pg 4.1

    Anf-02 Pg 15.1

    Anf-02 iv.ii.ii.xxxviii Pg 3.1

    Anf-03 v.iv.v.xxix Pg 42
    Vel: or, “if you please;” indicating some uncertainty in the quotation. The passage is more like Jer. xv. 14 than anything in Isaiah (see, however, Isa. xxx. 27; 30).

    by Isaiah, “A fire has been kindled in mine anger.” He cannot lie. If it is not He who uttered His voice out of even the burning bush, it can be of no importance4691

    4691 Viderit.

    what fire you insist upon being understood.  Even if it be but figurative fire, yet, from the very fact that he takes from my element illustrations for His own sense, He is mine, because He uses what is mine. The similitude of fire must belong to Him who owns the reality thereof. But He will Himself best explain the quality of that fire which He mentioned, when He goes on to say, “Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division.”4692


    Anf-01 ix.iv.vii Pg 3
    Gen. xix. 24.

    For it here points out that the Son, who had also been talking with Abraham, had received power to judge the Sodomites for their wickedness. And this [text following] does declare the same truth: “Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever; the sceptre of Thy kingdom is a right sceptre. Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity: therefore God, Thy God, hath anointed Thee.”3331


    Anf-01 viii.iv.cxxvii Pg 7
    Gen. xix. 24.

    and again, when it is thus said by David: ‘Lift up your gates, ye rulers; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting gates; and the King of glory shall enter;’2454


    Anf-01 v.xv.ii Pg 3
    Gen. xix. 24.

    And again, “And God1220

    1220 The ms. has “Lord.”

    said, Let Us make man after our image: and so God made man, after the image of God made He him.”1221


    Anf-03 v.ix.xiii Pg 8
    Gen. xix. 24.

    Now, either deny that this is Scripture; or else (let me ask) what sort of man you are, that you do not think words ought to be taken and understood in the sense in which they are written, especially when they are not expressed in allegories and parables, but in determinate and simple declarations? If, indeed, you follow those who did not at the time endure the Lord when showing Himself to be the Son of God, because they would not believe Him to be the Lord, then (I ask you) call to mind along with them the passage where it is written, “I have said, Ye are gods, and ye are children of the Most High;”7912
