    John 1:18

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

    Anf-01 ix.iv.xii Pg 22
    John i. 18.

    For He, the Son who is in His bosom, declares to all the Father who is invisible. Wherefore they know Him to whom the Son reveals Him; and again, the Father, by means of the Son, gives knowledge of His Son to those who love Him. By whom also Nathanael, being taught, recognised [Him], he to whom also the Lord bare witness, that he was “an Israelite indeed, in whom was no guile.”3445


    Anf-01 Pg 11
    Comp. the reading sanctioned by the ancient authorities, John i. 18.

    God, and Wisdom, and the Word of God, and deems Him to consist merely of a soul and body, such an one is a serpent, that preaches deceit and error for the destruction of men. <index subject1="Ebionite" title="83" id=""/>And such a man is poor in understanding, even as by name he is an Ebionite.932

    932 From a Hebrew word meaning “poor.”

    If any one confesses the truths mentioned,933

    933 Or, “these things.”

    but calls lawful wedlock, and the procreation of children, destruction and pollution, or deems certain kinds of food abominable, such an one has the apostate dragon dwelling within him. <index subject1="Christ" subject2="His sufferings" title="83" id=""/><index subject1="Holy Spirit" title="83" id=""/>If any one confesses the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost, and praises the creation, but calls the incarnation merely an appearance, and is ashamed of the passion, such an one has denied the faith, not less than the Jews who killed Christ. <index subject1="Luxury abjured" title="83" id=""/><index subject1="Nicolaitans" title="83" id=""/>If any one confesses these things, and that God the Word did dwell in a human body, being within it as the Word, even as the soul also is in the body, because it was God that inhabited it, and not a human soul, but affirms that unlawful unions are a good thing, and places the highest happiness934

    934 Literally, “the end of happiness.”

    in pleasure, as does the man who is falsely called a Nicolaitan, this person can neither be a lover of God, nor a lover of Christ, but is a corrupter of his own flesh, and therefore void of the Holy Spirit, and a stranger to Christ. All such persons are but monuments and sepulchres of the dead, upon which are written only the names of dead men. <index subject1="Devil, snares of the" title="83" id=""/>Flee, therefore, the wicked devices and snares of the spirit which now worketh in the children of this world,935


    Anf-01 v.xvii.ii Pg 4
    John i. 18.

    And again, “One Lord Jesus Christ.”1308

    John i. 18.

    But His Word, as He Himself willed it, and for the benefit of those who beheld, did show the Father’s brightness, and explained His purposes (as also the Lord said: “The only-begotten God,4097

    4097 “This text, as quoted a short time ago, indicated ‘the only-begotten Son;’ but the agreement of the Syriac version induces the belief that the present reading was that expressed by Irenæus, and that the previous quotation has been corrected to suit the Vulgate. The former reading, however, occurs in book iii. c. xi. 5.”— Harvey.

    which is in the bosom of the Father, He hath declared [Him];” and He does Himself also interpret the Word of the Father as being rich and great); not in one figure, nor in one character, did He appear to those seeing Him, but according to the reasons and effects aimed at in His dispensations, as it is written in Daniel. For at one time He was seen with those who were around Ananias, Azarias, Misaël, as present with them in the furnace of fire, in the burning, and preserving them from [the effects of] fire: “And the appearance of the fourth,” it is said, “was like to the Son of God.”4098

    Comp. Bible:Heb.1.3">Ex. xxxiii. 20; John i. 18; xiv. 9; Col. i. 15; Heb. i. 3.

    And accordingly it is agreed that the Son of God Himself spake to Moses, and said to the people, “Behold, I send mine angel before thy”—that is, the people’s—“face, to guard thee on the march, and to introduce thee into the land which I have prepared thee: attend to him, and be not disobedient to him; for he hath not escaped1296

    1296 Oehler and others read “celavit”; but the correction of Fr. Junius and Rig., “celabit,” is certainly more agreeable to the LXX. and the Eng. ver.

    thy notice, since my name is upon him.”1297


    Anf-03 v.ix.viii Pg 7
    John i. 18.

    He has also heard and seen all things with the Father; and what He has been commanded by the Father, that also does He speak.7851


    Anf-03 v.ix.xv Pg 4
    John i. 18.

    meaning, of course, at any previous time.  But he has indeed taken away all question of time, by saying that God had never been seen. The apostle confirms this statement; for, speaking of God, he says, “Whom no man hath seen, nor can see;”7939


    Anf-03 v.ix.xv Pg 13
    John i. 18.

    He was both heard and seen and, that He might not be supposed to be a phantom, was actually handled. Him, too, did Paul behold; but yet he saw not the Father. “Have I not,” he says, “seen Jesus Christ our Lord?”7948


    Anf-03 v.ix.xxi Pg 5
    Unius sinum Patris. Another reading makes: “He alone (unus) declared,” etc. See John i. 18.

    the Father did not divulge the secrets of His own bosom. For this is preceded by another statement: “No man hath seen God at any time.”8012

    John i. 18, first clause.
