    Romans 3:1

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

    Anf-02 vi.iv.vii.ix Pg 5.1

    Anf-02 vi.iv.vii.xii Pg 47.1

    Anf-03 v.viii.xxvi Pg 13
    Rom. ii. 28, 29.

    In the same way it is that both God’s temple and Jerusalem (must be understood) when it is said by Isaiah: “Awake, awake, O Jerusalem! put on the strength of thine arm; awake, as in thine earliest time,”7472


    Anf-03 Pg 25
    Rom. ii. 29.

    Since this is the circumcision recommended by Jeremiah: “Circumcise (yourselves to the Lord, and take away) the foreskins of your heart;”5808


    Anf-01 Pg 9
    Isa. i. 11.

    And when He had repudiated holocausts, and sacrifices, and oblations, as likewise the new moons, and the sabbaths, and the festivals, and all the rest of the services accompanying these, He continues, exhorting them to what pertained to salvation: “Wash you, make you clean, take away wickedness from your hearts from before mine eyes: cease from your evil ways, learn to do well, seek judgment, relieve the oppressed, judge the fatherless, plead for the widow; and come, let us reason together, saith the Lord.”

    Anf-01 vi.ii.ii Pg 4
    Isa. i. 11–14, from the Sept., as is the case throughout. We have given the quotation as it stands in Cod. Sin.

    <index subject1="Law of Christ" title="138" id="vi.ii.ii-p4.2"/>He has therefore abolished these things, that the new law of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is without the yoke of necessity, might have a human oblation.1459

    1459 Thus in the Latin. The Greek reads, “might not have a man-made oblation.” The Latin text seems preferable, implying that, instead of the outward sacrifices of the law, there is now required a dedication of man himself. Hilgenfeld follows the Greek.

    And again He says to them, “Did I command your fathers, when they went out from the land of Egypt, to offer unto Me burnt-offerings and sacrifices? But this rather I commanded them, Let no one of you cherish any evil in his heart against his neighbour, and love not an oath of falsehood.”1460

    Anf-03 iv.ix.v Pg 14
    Comp. Isa. i. 11–14, especially in the LXX.

    for “from the rising sun unto the setting, my Name hath been made famous among all the nations, saith the Lord.”1209


    Anf-03 v.iv.iii.xxii Pg 12
    Isa. i. 11.

    —He meant nothing else than this to be understood, that He had never really required such homage for Himself. For He says, “I will not eat the flesh of bulls;”2973


    Anf-03 iv.ix.v Pg 12
    Isa. i. 11.

    —so spiritual sacrifices are predicted1207

    1207 Or, “foretold.”

    as accepted, as the prophets announce.  For, “even if ye shall have brought me,” He says, “the finest wheat flour, it is a vain supplicatory gift: a thing execrable to me;” and again He says, “Your holocausts and sacrifices, and the fat of goats, and blood of bulls, I will not, not even if ye come to be seen by me: for who hath required these things from your hands?”1208


    Anf-03 vi.iv.xxviii Pg 4
    Isa. i. 11. See the LXX.

    What, then, God has required the Gospel teaches.  “An hour will come,” saith He, “when the true adorers shall adore the Father in spirit and truth. For God is a Spirit, and accordingly requires His adorers to be such.”8938


    Anf-03 v.iv.iii.xviii Pg 11
    Isa. i. 11, 12.

    But he should see herein a careful provision2921

    2921 Industriam.

    on God’s part, which showed His wish to bind to His own religion a people who were prone to idolatry and transgression by that kind of services wherein consisted the superstition of that period; that He might call them away therefrom, while requesting it to be performed to Himself, as if He desired that no sin should be committed in making idols.

    Anf-03 v.iv.iii.xxii Pg 18
    See Isa. i. 11–14.

    By calling them yours, as having been performed2979

    2979 Fecerat seems the better reading: q.d. “which he had performed,” etc. Oehler reads fecerant.

    after the giver’s own will, and not according to the religion of God (since he displayed them as his own, and not as God’s), the Almighty in this passage, demonstrated how suitable to the conditions of the case, and how reasonable, was His rejection of those very offerings which He had commanded to be made to Him.

    Anf-03 iv.ix.iii Pg 9
    Isa. i. 15.

    and again, “Woe! sinful nation; a people full of sins; wicked sons; ye have quite forsaken God, and have provoked unto indignation the Holy One of Israel.”1169


    Anf-03 vi.iv.xiv Pg 5
    Isa. i. 15.

    for fear Christ should utterly shudder.  We, however, not only raise, but even expand them; and, taking our model from the Lord’s passion8849

    8849 i.e. from the expansion of the hands on the cross.

    even in prayer we confess8850

    8850 Or, “give praise.”

    to Christ.
