    Woe to you blind
    guides, that say, Whosoever shall swear by the temple, it is nothing; but he that shall swear by the gold of the temple, is a debtor.

    guides, who say, 'Whoever swears by the temple, it is nothing; but whoever swears by the gold of the temple, he is obligated.'

    Matthew 23:16

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

    Anf-01 viii.iv.cxii Pg 3
    Matt. xxiii. 27, 23, 24. [Note the examples he gives of the rabbinical expositions. He consents to their principle, but gives nobler analogies.]

    If, then, you will not despise the doctrines of those who exalt themselves and wish to be called Rabbi, Rabbi, and come with such earnestness and intelligence to the words of prophecy as to suffer the same inflictions from your own people which the prophets themselves did, you cannot receive any advantage whatsoever from the prophetic writings.

    Anf-01 ix.iv.xix Pg 26
    Matt. xxiii. 24.

    And to the disciples He was wont to say, “And ye shall stand before governors and kings for My sake; and they shall scourge some of you, and slay you, and persecute you from city to city.”3653


    Anf-01 Pg 36
    Matt. xxiii. 24.

    For no reformation of so great importance can be effected by them, as will compensate for the mischief arising from their schism. He shall also judge all those who are beyond the pale of the truth, that is, who are outside the Church; but he himself shall be judged by no one. For to him all things are consistent: he has a full faith in one God Almighty, of whom are all things; and in the Son of God, Jesus Christ our Lord, by whom are all things, and in the dispensations connected with Him, by means of which the Son of God became man; and a firm belief in the Spirit of God, who furnishes us with a knowledge of the truth, and has set forth the dispensations of the Father and the Son, in virtue of which He dwells with every generation of men,4281


    Anf-01 Pg 11
    Matt. xxiii. 26.

    And they did not listen to Him. For Jeremiah says, “Behold, neither thine eyes nor thy heart are good; but [they are turned] to thy covetousness, and to shed innocent blood, and for injustice, and for man-slaying, that thou mayest do it.”4042

    See Matt. xv. 10, 11, 17–20; xxiii. 25, 26.

    not those which most are superstitiously careful about, taking water at every prayer, even when they are coming from a bath of the whole body. When I was scrupulously making a thorough investigation of this practice, and searching into the reason of it, I ascertained it to be a commemorative act, bearing on the surrender8844

    Ex. xxxiii. 1; Lev. xx. 24.

    What, then, says Knowledge?1507

    1507 The original word is “Gnosis,” the knowledge peculiar to advanced Christians, by which they understand the mysteries of Scripture.

    Learn: “Trust,” she says, “in Him who is to be manifested to you in the flesh—that is, Jesus.” For man is earth in a suffering state, for the formation of Adam was from the face of the earth. What, then, meaneth this: “into the good land, a land flowing with milk and honey?” Blessed be our Lord, who has placed in us wisdom and understanding of secret things. For the prophet says, “Who shall understand the parable of the Lord, except him who is wise and prudent, and who loves his Lord?”1508

    Matt. xv. 14.

    But when, for the sake of deceiving us, they pretend that they are still seeking, in order that they may palm2012

    2012 Insinuent.

    their essays2013

    2013 Tractatus.

    upon us by the suggestion of an anxious sympathy,2014

    2014 Or, “by instilling an anxiety into us” (Dodgson).

    —when, in short (after gaining an access to us), they proceed at once to insist on the necessity of our inquiring into such points as they were in the habit of advancing, then it is high time for us in moral obligation2015

    2015 Jam debemus.

    to repel2016

    2016 Refutare.

    them, so that they may know that it is not Christ, but themselves, whom we disavow. For since they are still seekers, they have no fixed tenets yet;2017

    2017 Nondum tenent.

    and being not fixed in tenet, they have not yet believed; and being not yet believers, they are not Christians. But even though they have their tenets and their belief, they still say that inquiry is necessary in order to discussion.2018

    2018 Ut defendant.

    Previous, however, to the discussion, they deny what they confess not yet to have believed, so long as they keep it an object of inquiry. When men, therefore, are not Christians even on their own admission,2019

    2019 Nec sibi sunt.

    how much more (do they fail to appear such) to us! What sort of truth is that which they patronize,2020

    2020 Patrocinantur.

    when they commend it to us with a lie?  Well, but they actually2021

    2021 Ipsi.

    treat of the Scriptures and recommend (their opinions) out of the Scriptures! To be sure they do.2022

    2022 Scilicet.

    From what other source could they derive arguments concerning the things of the faith, except from the records of the faith?

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
