Anf-03 v.iv.v.xli Pg 21 Of what God, but of Him whom alone they knew? Of what God but of Him whom they remembered in the Psalm as having said to His Son, “Sit Thou on my right hand?” Then He answered, “Ye say that I am;”5113
Luke xxii. 70.
Anf-03 v.iv.v.xli Pg 22 as if He meant: It is ye who say this—not I. But at the same time He allowed Himself to be all that they had said, in this their second question.5114
Luke xxii. 70.
5114 Or does he suppose that they repeated this same question twice? His words are, “dum rursus interrogant.” By what means, however, are you going to prove to us that they pronounced the sentence “Ergo tu filius Dei es” interrogatively, and not affirmatively?5115
5115 Either, “Art thou,” or, “Thou art, then, the Son of God.” Just as, (on the one hand,) because He had shown them in an indirect manner,5116
5116 Oblique. by passages of Scripture, that they ought to regard Him as the Son of God, they therefore meant their own words, “Thou art then the Son of God,” to be taken in a like (indirect) sense,5117
5117 Ut, quia…sic senserunt. as much as to say, “You do not wish to say this of yourself plainly,”5118
5118 Aperte. so, (on the other hand,) He likewise answered them, “Ye say that I am,” in a sense equally free from doubt, even affirmatively;5119
5119 Æque ita et ille confirmative respondit. and so completely was His statement to this effect, that they insisted on accepting that sense which His statement indicated.5120
