Anf-01 viii.iv.ciii Pg 5 is recorded in the memoirs of the apostles to have come to Him and tempted Him, even so far as to say to Him, ‘Worship me;’ and Christ answered him, ‘Get thee behind me, Satan: thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve.’2345
Ps. ii. 7; Matt. iii. 17.

Matt. iii. 17.
Anf-03 v.ix.xix Pg 12 By thus attaching the Son to Himself, He becomes His own interpreter in what sense He stretched out the heavens alone, meaning alone with His Son, even as He is one with His Son. The utterance, therefore, will be in like manner the Son’s, “I have stretched out the heavens alone,”7999
Matt. iii. 17.
Anf-03 v.xi.v Pg 5 and, since the dove is styled by the Greek name περιστερά —(peristera), it has in itself this number DCCCI.8396
See Matt. iii. 13–17; Mark i. 9–11; Luke iii. 21–22; John i. 29–34.
8396 Habere secum numerum DCCCI. So Oehler, after Jos. Scaliger, who, however, seems to have read “secum hunc numerum,” for the ordinary reading, “habere secundum numerum,” which would mean, “represents, in the way of numerical value, DCCCI.” These men run through their Ω, Ψ, Χ, Φ, Υ, Τ—through the whole alphabet, indeed, up to Α and Β—and compute ogdoads and decads. So we may grant it useless and idle to recount all their trifles. What, however, must be allowed not merely vain, but likewise dangerous, is this: they feign a second God, beside the Creator; they affirm that Christ was not in the substance of flesh; they say there is to be no resurrection of the flesh.
