Luke 13 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

the woman who had suffered for eighteen years, and was healed on the Sabbath-day;[245]

Luke 13 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

also the parable of the judge who feared not God, whom the widow's importunity led to avenge her cause;[255]

Luke 13:1 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise Against the Heretic Novatian by an Anonymous Bishop

Or those eighteen upon whom the tower in Siloam fell, think ye that they were debtors to death above all men who dwell in Jerusalem? No; I say unto you," said He, "that unless ye repent, ye shall all likewise perish."[61]

Luke 13:6 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

Then, again, this truth was clearly shown forth by the parable of the fig-tree, of which the Lord says, "Behold, now these three years I come seeking fruit on this fig-tree, but I find none"[594]

Luke 13:7 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Refutation of All Heresies Book VIII

(This seed is) a refuge for the terror-stricken, a shelter of the naked, a veil for modesty, (and) the sought-for produce, to which He came in search (for fruit), he says, three times,[7]

Luke 13:8 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book X

This refuse is perhaps the "dung" thrown down beside the fig tree by the keeper of the vineyard, which is the cause of its bearing fruit.[44]

Luke 13:11 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VIII

And when Jesus beheld her, and perceived from what cause she was bowed together, he said, "Ought not this daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound, lo, these eighteen years, to be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath day? "[108]

Luke 13:12 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XI

Take note also of the cases where Jesus is recorded to have sent any one away, that you may see the difference of those who were sent away by Him after being fed, and those who had been sent away otherwise; and, as a pattern of one who was sent away otherwise, take "Woman, thou art loosed from thine infirmity."[214]

Luke 13:15 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

doth not each one of you on the Sabbath-days loose his ox or his ass, and lead him away to watering? And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the Sabbath-days? "[88]

Luke 13:15 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book IV

When the question was again raised concerning a cure performed on the Sabbath-day, how did He discuss it: "Doth not each of you on the Sabbath loose his ass or his ox from the stall, and lead him away to watering? "[1226]

Luke 13:15 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Exegetical Fragments

that at the coming of the Lord all things loosed should be brought to light, and that things bound of old should now be loosed by Him, as the Lord said Himself to the rulers of the people, when they were indignant at the cure on the Sabbath-day: "Ye hypocrites, doth not each one of you loose his ox or his ass from the stall, and lead him away to watering? and ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, whom Satan hath bound these eighteen years, be loosed on the Sabbath-day? "[173]

Luke 13:16 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book II

And not only in the case of this woman have the years of her infirmity (which they affirm to fit in with their figment) been mentioned, but, lo! another woman was also healed, after suffering in like manner for eighteen years; concerning whom the Lord said, "And ought not this daughter of Abraham, whom Satan has bound during eighteen years, to be set free on the Sabbath-day? "[162]

Luke 13:19 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

Wherefore He Himself, declaring Himself very beautifully, likened Himself to a grain of mustard-seed;[257]

Luke 13:19 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Refutation of All Heresies Book V

That which is, he says, nothing, and which consists of nothing, inasmuch as it is indivisible-(I mean) a point-will become through its own reflective power a certain incomprehensible magnitude. This, he says, is the kingdom of heaven, the grain of mustard seed,[124]

Luke 13:20 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book IV

.[1235]

Luke 13:24 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Fasting

More easily, it may be, through the "strait gate"[123]

Luke 13:24 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

but also that which was said by the Saviour to those who come to Him, as it is recorded in Luke in these words, "Strive to enter in by the narrow door, for many, I say unto you, shall seek to enter in through the narrow door and shall not be able; "[86]

Luke 13:24 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

Now, if you attend to the saying, "Many, I say unto you, shall seek to enter in and shall not be able,"[88]

Luke 13:25 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book IV

How often has He already displayed Himself as a Judge, and in the Judge the Creator? How often, indeed, has He repelled, and in the repulse condemned? In the present passage, for instance, He says, "When once the master of the house is risen up; "[1238]

Luke 13:25 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book IV

"And hath shut to the door," thereby shutting out the wicked, of course; and when these knock, He will answer, "I know you not whence ye are; "and when they recount how "they have eaten and drunk in His presence," He will further say to them, "Depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity; there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth."[1240]

Luke 13:25 - NIV, NAB - in Melito the Philosopher

is His disapproval. In the Gospel: "I know you not."[133]

Luke 13:26 - NIV, NAB - in First Apology of Justin

By their works ye shall know them. And every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit, is hewn down and cast into the fire."[32]

Luke 13:26 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book II

And in another passage: "Many will say unto Me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not eaten and drunk in Thy name, and by Thy name have cast out demons, and done many wonderful works? And then will I say unto them, Depart from Me, because ye are workers of iniquity."[113]

Luke 13:27 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

But what reply is that righteous Judge and King represented as making to them? "Depart from me into everlasting fire, ye workers of iniquity."[404]

Luke 13:27 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

in My very bosom, yet if ye were not to keep My commandments, I would cast you off, and say unto you, Depart from Me; I know you not whence ye are, ye workers of iniquity."[36]

Luke 13:27 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

me in my very bosom, yet if ye were not to keep my commandments, I would cast you off, and say unto you, Depart from me; I know you not whence ye are, ye workers of iniquity."[26]

Luke 13:28 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

and then again by saying to the Jews, "When ye shall see Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and all the prophets in the kingdom of heaven, but you yourselves cast out."[86]

Luke 13:28 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book IV

For how happens it, if the kingdom belong to the most lenient god, that it is closely followed up by a fervent judgment, the severity of which brings weeping?[1233]

Luke 13:29 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement IV

But whereas He said also, `Many shall come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and shall recline in the bosom of Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob; '[6]

Luke 13:29 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily VIII

For I remember His saying, `Many shall come from the east and from the west, the north and the south, and shall recline on the bosoms of Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob.'[6]

Luke 13:31 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise IV On the Lord's Prayer

But the Lord prayed and besought not for Himself-for why should He who was guiltless pray on His own behalf?-but for our sins, as He Himself declared, when He said to Peter, "Behold, Satan hath desired that he might sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not."[83]

Luke 13:32 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book I

Wherefore I have laboured to bring forward, and make clearly manifest, the utterly ill-conditioned carcase of this miserable little fox.[330]

Luke 13:32 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

Speaking of Herod, too, He says, "Go ye and tell that fox,"[646]

Luke 13:32 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book IV

Thus also, in reference to Herod: "Go, tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and perform cures to-day and to-morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected."[31]

Luke 13:32 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book IV

For not riches only, but also honour, and marriage, and poverty, have ten thousand cares for him who is unfit for them.[32]

Luke 13:33 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

For, when any one apprehends from the Word the perfect knowledge of these things, then it must be said that, from a rational exhibition (the mind seeing the things which are shown, ) the exhibition becomes complete for him who has the will and the power to contemplate these things, and does contemplate them. But since "it cannot be that a prophet perish out of Jerusalem,"[134]

Luke 13:34 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

And, without using a parable, the Lord said to Jerusalem, `O Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest those that are sent unto thee; how often would I have gathered thy children together, as a hen gathereth her chickens trader her wings, and ye would not! Behold, your house shall be left unto you desolate."[595]

Luke 13:34 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

"Jerusalem, Jerusalem, how often would I have gathered thy children, as a hen her chickens!"[62]

Luke 13:34 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

The expression, then, "How often," shows wisdom to be manifold; every mode of quantity and quality, it by all means saves some, both in time and in eternity. "For the Spirit of the Lord fills the earth."[63]

Luke 13:34 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

" For this is the end of foolish pleasure. Such, indeed, is the case. And when He says, "Be not much with a strange woman,"[64]

Luke 13:34 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily III

And vet He loved even those who hated Him, and wept over the unbelieving, and blessed those who slandered Him, and prayed for those who were enmity against Him.[9]
