    Who can stand before the face of his indignation? and who shall resist in the fierceness of his anger? his indignation is poured out like
    fire: and the rocks are melted by him.

    fire, and the rocks are broken apart by him.

    Nahum 1:6

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

    Anf-02 vi.ii.viii Pg 27.1

    Anf-02 vi.iv.v.xiii Pg 8.1

    Anf-01 ix.iv.xii Pg 12
    Mal. iii. 1.

    who should prepare His way, that is, that he should bear witness of that Light in the spirit and power of Elias.3437


    Anf-01 ii.ii.xxiii Pg 5
    Mal. iii. 1.

    Anf-02 ii.iii.v Pg 8.1

    Anf-03 iv.ix.ix Pg 55
    Mal. iii. 1: comp. Matt. xi. 10; Mark i. 2; Luke vii. 27.

    Nor is it a novel practice to the Holy Spirit to call those “angels” whom God has appointed as ministers of His power. For the same John is called not merely an “angel” of Christ, but withal a “lamp” shining before Christ: for David predicts, “I have prepared the lamp for my Christ;”1299


    Anf-03 v.iv.v.xviii Pg 36
    Luke vii. 26, 27, and Mal. iii. 1–; 3.

    He graciously4171

    4171 Eleganter.

    adduced the prophecy in the superior sense of the alternative mentioned by the perplexed John, in order that, by affirming that His own precursor was already come in the person of John, He might quench the doubt4172

    4172 Scrupulum.

    which lurked in his question: “Art thou He that should come, or look we for another?”  Now that the forerunner had fulfilled his mission, and the way of the Lord was prepared, He ought now to be acknowledged as that (Christ) for whom the forerunner had made ready the way. That forerunner was indeed “greater than all of women born;”4173


    Anf-02 vi.ii.i Pg 29.1

    Anf-03 iv.ix.ix Pg 59
    Comp. reference 8, p. 232; and Isa. xl. 3; John i. 23.

    but withal, by pointing out “the Lamb of God,”1303


    Anf-03 v.iv.v.xxxiii Pg 33
    Isa. xl. 3.

    and as about to come for the purpose of terminating thenceforth the course of the law and the prophets; by their fulfilment and not their extinction, and in order that the kingdom of God might be announced by Christ, He therefore purposely added the assurance that the elements would more easily pass away than His words fail; affirming, as He did, the further fact, that what He had said concerning John had not fallen to the ground.

    Anf-03 Pg 6
    Isa. xl. 3; Matt. iii. 3.

    for the Holy Spirit, who is about to come upon us, by the washing away of sins, which faith, sealed in (the name of) the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Spirit, obtains. For if “in the mouth of three witnesses every word shall stand:”8588


    Anf-03 v.iv.iii.xxii Pg 14
    An inexact quotation of Isa. xl .28.

    Although He had respect to the offerings of Abel, and smelled a sweet savour from the holocaust of Noah, yet what pleasure could He receive from the flesh of sheep, or the odour of burning victims? And yet the simple and God-fearing mind of those who offered what they were receiving from God, both in the way of food and of a sweet smell, was favourably accepted before God, in the sense of respectful homage2975

    2975 Honorem.

    to God, who did not so much want what was offered, as that which prompted the offering. Suppose now, that some dependant were to offer to a rich man or a king, who was in want of nothing, some very insignificant gift, will the amount and quality of the gift bring dishonour2976

    2976 Infuscabit.

    to the rich man and the king; or will the consideration2977

    2977 Titulus.

    of the homage give them pleasure? Were, however, the dependant, either of his own accord or even in compliance with a command, to present to him gifts suitably to his rank, and were he to observe the solemnities due to a king, only without faith and purity of heart, and without any readiness for other acts of obedience, will not that king or rich man consequently exclaim: “To what purpose is the multitude of your sacrifices unto me? I am full of your solemnities, your feast-days, and your Sabbaths.”2978


    Anf-01 iii.ii.vii Pg 8
    [Comp. Mal. iii. 2. The Old Testament is frequently in mind, if not expressly quoted by Mathetes.] A considerable gap here occurs in the mss.

    … Do you not see them exposed to wild beasts, that they may be persuaded to deny the Lord, and yet not overcome? Do you not see that the more of them are punished, the greater becomes the number of the rest? This does not seem to be the work of man: this is the power of God; these are the evidences of His manifestation.

    Anf-02 vi.ii.viii Pg 31.3

    Anf-01 viii.iv.xxii Pg 2
    Amos v. 18 to end, Amos vi. 1–7.

    And again by Jeremiah: ‘Collect your flesh, and sacrifices, and eat: for concerning neither sacrifices nor libations did I command your fathers in the day in which I took them by the hand to lead them out of Egypt.’2002
