    Lamentations 4:14

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

    Anf-01 v.ii.vii Pg 5
    Isa. lvi. 10

    raving mad, and biting secretly, against whom ye must be on your guard, since they labour under an incurable disease. <index subject1="Christ" subject2="His person" title="52" id="v.ii.vii-p5.2"/>But our Physician is the only true God, the unbegotten and unapproachable, the Lord of all, the Father and Begetter of the only-begotten Son. We have also as a Physician the Lord our God, Jesus the Christ, the only-begotten Son and Word, before time began,537

    537 Or, “before the ages.”

    but who afterwards became also man, of Mary the virgin. For “the Word was made flesh.”538


    Anf-03 v.x.ii Pg 10
    Deut. xii. 2, 3.

    He further urges, when they (the Israelites) had entered the land of promise, and driven out its nations: “Take heed to thy self, that thou do not follow them after they be driven out from before thee, that thou do not inquire after their gods, saying, As the nations serve their gods, so let me do likewise.”8236


    Anf-03 iv.iv.x Pg 8
    Bible:Zech.13.2">Ex. xxiii. 13; Josh. xxiii. 7; Ps. xvi. 4; Hos. ii. 17; Zech. xiii. 2.

    and this name228

    228 i.e., the name of God.

    to be conferred on vanity.229

    229 i.e., on an idol, which, as Isaiah says, is “vanity.”

    Hence the devil gets men’s early faith built up from the beginnings of their erudition.  Inquire whether he who catechizes about idols commit idolatry. But when a believer learns these things, if he is already capable of understanding what idolatry is, he neither receives nor allows them; much more if he is not yet capable. Or, when he begins to understand, it behoves him first to understand what he has previously learned, that is, touching God and the faith. Therefore he will reject those things, and will not receive them; and will be as safe as one who from one who knows it not, knowingly accepts poison, but does not drink it. To him necessity is attributed as an excuse, because he has no other way to learn. Moreover, the not teaching literature is as much easier than the not learning, as it is easier, too, for the pupil not to attend, than for the master not to frequent, the rest of the defilements incident to the schools from public and scholastic solemnities.

    Anf-03 iv.ix.xiii Pg 56
    See Isa. ii. 20.

    —that is, ever since we Gentiles, with our breast doubly enlightened through Christ’s truth, cast forth (let the Jews see it) our idols,—what follows has likewise been fulfilled. For “the Lord of Sabaoth hath taken away, among the Jews from Jerusalem,” among the other things named, “the wise architect” too,1433


    Anf-03 v.iv.iv.xxiii Pg 3
    Isa. ii. 20.

    in other words, from the time when he threw away his idols after the truth had been made clear by Christ. Consider whether what follows in the prophet has not received its fulfilment: “The Lord of hosts hath taken away from Judah and from Jerusalem, amongst other things, both the prophet and the wise artificer;”3417


    Anf-01 ix.iv.xxii Pg 28
    Ex. viii. 19.

    that the Egyptians themselves might testify that it is the finger of God which works salvation for the people, and not the son of Joseph. For if He were the son of Joseph, how could He be greater than Solomon, or greater than Jonah,3728


    Anf-03 v.iv.v.xxvi Pg 37
    Ex. viii. 19.

    It was the finger of God, because it was a sign4563

    4563 Significaret.

    that even a thing of weakness was yet abundant in strength. This Christ also showed, when, recalling to notice (and not obliterating) those ancient wonders which were really His own,4564

    4564 Vetustatum scilicet suarum.

    He said that the power of God must be understood to be the finger of none other God than Him, under4565

    4565 Apud.

    whom it had received this appellation. His kingdom, therefore, was come near to them, whose power was called His “finger.”  Well, therefore, did He connect4566

    4566 Applicuit.

    with the parable of “the strong man armed,” whom “a stronger man still overcame,”4567

    but he is not yet the despiser of the prophet Samuel.2985


    Anf-03 v.iv.v.xxv Pg 20
    Isa. xliv. 25, Sept.

    Now, if He has designated His Christ as an enlightener of the Gentiles, saying, “I have set thee for a light of the Gentiles;”4483

    Isa. xliv. 25.

    of His Son?”7997

    7997 On this reading, see our Anti-Marcion, p. 207, note 9. Edin.

    —as, for instance, when He said, “This is my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased; hear ye Him.”7998
