Anf-02 vi.iii.i.ix Pg 22.1
Anf-02 vi.iii.i.ix Pg 36.1
Anf-03 v.iv.iv.xxiii Pg 9 So likewise that conditional threat of the sword, “If ye refuse and hear me not, the sword shall devour you,”3423
Isa. i. 3, 4.
Anf-03 iv.ix.iii Pg 10 This, therefore, was God’s foresight,—that of giving circumcision to Israel, for a sign whence they might be distinguished when the time should arrive wherein their above-mentioned deserts should prohibit their admission into Jerusalem: which circumstance, because it was to be, used to be announced; and, because we see it accomplished, is recognised by us. For, as the carnal circumcision, which was temporary, was in wrought for “a sign” in a contumacious people, so the spiritual has been given for salvation to an obedient people; while the prophet Jeremiah says, “Make a renewal for you, and sow not in thorns; be circumcised to God, and circumcise the foreskin of your heart:”1170
Isa. i. 4.
Anf-03 iv.ix.xiii Pg 65 So, again, we find a conditional threat of the sword: “If ye shall have been unwilling, and shall not have been obedient, the glaive shall eat you up.”1442
See Isa. i. 7, 8; 4.
Anf-03 v.iv.iv.vi Pg 16 If, however, you would rather refer to God Himself, instead of to Christ, the whole imputation of Jewish ignorance from the first, through an unwillingness to allow that even anciently3171
Isa. i. 4.
3171 Retro. the Creator’s word and Spirit—that is to say, His Christ—was despised and not acknowledged by them, you will even in this subterfuge be defeated. For when you do not deny that the Creator’s Son and Spirit and Substance is also His Christ, you must needs allow that those who have not acknowledged the Father have failed likewise to acknowledge the Son through the identity of their natural substance;3172
3172 Per ejusdem substantiæ conditionem. for if in Its fulness It has baffled man’s understanding, much more has a portion of It, especially when partaking of the fulness.3173
Anf-03 v.iv.v.xxi Pg 36 When does this more frequently happen than in the persecution of His saints? This, indeed, is no ordinary matter,4291
Isa. lvii. i.
4291 We have, by understanding res, treated these adjectives as nouns. Rigalt. applies them to the doctrina of the sentence just previous. Perhaps, however, “persecutione” is the noun. no common casualty of the law of nature; but it is that illustrious devotion, that fighting for the faith, wherein whosoever loses his life for God saves it, so that you may here again recognize the Judge who recompenses the evil gain of life with its destruction, and the good loss thereof with its salvation. It is, however, a jealous God whom He here presents to me; one who returns evil for evil. “For whosoever,” says He, “shall be ashamed of me, of him will I also be ashamed.”4292
