matthew

Matt. 10 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement I

To such an extent does wickedness prevail by the agency of evil ones; so that, but for the Wisdom of God assisting those who love the truth, almost all would have been involved in impious delusion. Therefore He chose us twelve,[32]

Matt. 10:2 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book VI

On whose account also we, who are now assembled in one place,-Peter and Andrew; James and John, sons of Zebedee; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas and Matthew; James the son of Alphaeus, and Lebbaeus who is surnamed Thaddaeus; and Simon the Canaanite,[70]

Matt. 10:2 - NIV, NAB - in Acts of the Holy Apostle Thomas

At that time we the apostles were all in Jerusalem-Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; Philip and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the tax-gatherer; James of Alphaeus and Simon the Cananaean; and Judas of James;[1]

Matt. 10:3 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book I

also, who was a follower of Jesus, may have been a tax-gatherer; but he was not of the number of the apostles, except according to a statement in one of the copies of Mark's Gospel.[116]

Matt. 10:4 - NIV, NAB - in The Arabic Gospel of the Infancy of the Saviour

of whom mention is made in the Gospel.[20]

Matt. 10:5 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book III

-"In viam gentium ne abieritis, et ne ingrediamini in urbem Samaritanorum,"[217]

Matt. 10:5 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian The Prescription Against Heretics

not yet did He charge them to "go into the way of the Gentiles."[97]

Matt. 10:5 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

We maintain that this belongs specially to the persons of the apostles, and to their times and circumstances, as the following sentences will show, which are suitable only to the apostles: "Do not go into the way of the Gentiles, and into a city of the Samaritans do not enter: but go rather to the lost sheep of the house of Israel."[18]

Matt. 10:5 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Refutation of All Heresies Book V

was entirely opposed to the teaching of the holy Scriptures, and moreover to the written or oral teaching of the blessed evangelists, according as the Logos was accustomed to instruct His disciples, saying, "Go not into the way of the Gentiles; "[245]

Matt. 10:5 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LXXV

For when first He sent His disciples on the ministry of salvation, He bade them, saying, "Go not into the way of the Gentiles, and into any city of the Samaritans enter ye not."[19]

Matt. 10:5 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement I

and another who supported him in what he said, James and John, the sons of Zebedee, strove vigorously; and although they had a command not to enter into their cities,[55]

Matt. 10:5 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

It is written above that Jesus sent forth these twelve saying unto them, "Go not into any way of the Gentiles,"[110]

Matt. 10:6 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

To allege, then, that these men did not know the truth, is to act the part of false witnesses, and of those who have been alienated from the doctrine of Christ. For why did the Lord send the twelve apostles to the lost sheep of the house of Israel,[226]

Matt. 10:6 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

But as many as feared God, and were anxious about His law, these ran to Christ, and were all saved. For He said to His disciples: "Go ye to the sheep of the house of Israel,[26]

Matt. 10:7 - NIV, NAB - in The Teaching of Addaeus the Apostle

In my lifetime I have not taken anything from thee, nor will I now at my death take anything from thee, nor will I frustrate the word of Christ which He spake to us: Accept not anything from any man, and possess not anything in this world.[83]

Matt. 10:8 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book I

For these doctrines are not at all similar to those of which our Lord said, "Freely ye have received, freely give."[65]

Matt. 10:8 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book II

from them Ion account of such miraculous interpositions]. For as she has received freely[291]

Matt. 10:8 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

`giving in their turn just as Christ withal hath given to us; '[23]

Matt. 10:8 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Also in the Gospel: "Freely ye have received, freely give."[780]

Matt. 10:8 - NIV, NAB - in The First Epistle of Clement Concerning Virginity

many other acts of healing; and, "Freely ye have received, freely give."[125]

Matt. 10:9 - NIV, NAB - in Apollonius

,"[7]

Matt. 10:10 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

"For the workman is worthy of his meat."[98]

Matt. 10:10 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

Well, then, are justice and goodness opposed to each other? Far from it! There has only been an advance from simple justice to positive goodness. And again, we have the saying, "The workman is worthy of his hire."[462]

Matt. 10:10 - NIV, NAB - in Didache

2. So also a true teacher is himself worthy, as the workman, of his support.[120]

Matt. 10:10 - NIV, NAB - in Acts of Saint Philip the Apostle When He Went to Upper Hellas

For they thought that Philip was a philosopher, since he was travelling in the dress of a recluse; and they did not know that he was an apostle of Christ. For the dress which Jesus gave to His disciples was a mantle only, and a linen cloth.[1]

Matt. 10:10 - NIV, NAB - in Acts of Andrew and Matthias

For He chose for Himself us twelve, and gave us such a commandment, saying, When you go to preach, do not carry money in the journey, nor bread, nor bag, nor shoes, nor staff, nor two coats.[6]

Matt. 10:10 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book I

But that progress too, which is in wisdom and which is found by those who seek their salvation in it to do for them what they require both in respect of exposition of truth in the divine word and in respect of conduct according to true righteousness, it lets us understand how Christ is the way. In this way we have to take nothing with us,[134]

Matt. 10:11 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement II

For if we have it in charge, that when we enter into a city we should first learn who in it is worthy,[4]

Matt. 10:12 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book II

Wherefore, O bishop, when you are to go to prayer after the lessons, and the psalmody, and the instruction out of the Scriptures, let the deacon stand nigh you, and with a loud voice say: Let none have any quarrel with another; let none come in hypocrisy; that if there be any controversy found among any of you, they may be affected in conscience, and may pray to God, and be reconciled to their brethren. For if, upon coming into any one's house, we are to say, "Peace be to this house,"[241]

Matt. 10:12 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book III

And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it; but if it be not worthy, your peace shall return to you."[45]

Matt. 10:12 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement II

`But it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city or house.'[26]

Matt. 10:12 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily III

an infallible Prophet of that which is supremely profitable, gave us in charge, by way of salutation before our words of instruction, to announce to you, in order that if there be any son of peace among you, peace may take hold of him through our teaching; but if any of you will not receive it, then we, shaking off for a testimony the road-dust of our feet, which we have borne through our toils, and brought to you that you may be saved, will go to the abodes and the cities of others.[20]

Matt. 10:15 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

and that it shall be more tolerable for Sodom and Gomorrha in the judgment than for that city which did not receive the word of His disciples.[403]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to Polycarp

Be in all things "wise as a serpent, and harmless as a dove."[11]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Ignatius to Polycarp

Be in all things "wise as a serpent, and harmless always as a dove."[16]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

Again, when He says, "as suckling calves," He again alludes figuratively to us; and "as an innocent and gentle dove,"[27]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book VII

Mixing, then, "the serpent with the dove,"[137]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against the Valentinians

by them as simple, and as being merely so, without being wise also; as if indeed wisdom were compelled to be wanting in simplicity, whereas the Lord unites them both: "Be ye therefore wise as serpents, and simple as doves."[20]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Scorpiace

For even thus again does He address words of guidance to the apostles: "Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves; "and, "Beware of men, for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; and ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles," etc.[58]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Baptism

gall. And accordingly He says, "Be ye simple as doves."[67]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

In the Gospel according to Matthew: "Be ye prudent as serpents, and simple as doves."[750]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in Lactantius Of the Manner in Which the Persecutors Died

To His everlasting mercy ought we to render thanks, that, having at length looked on the earth, He deigned to collect again and to restore His flock, partly laid waste by ravenous wolves, and partly scattered abroad, and to extirpate those noxious wild beasts who had trod down its pastures, and destroyed its resting-places.[41]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

our sojourn in this present world, let us do the will of Him that called us, and not fear to depart out of this world. For the Lord saith, "Ye shall be as lambs in the midst of wolves."[37]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in The Second Epistle of Clement Concerning Virginity

If, moreover, it chance that we go to a place in which there are no Christians, and it be important for us to stay there a few days, let us be "wise as serpents, and harmless as doves; "[26]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in Acts of Andrew and Matthias

Where are the great mysteries which thou hast been taught, and the wonderful things which we have believed? And Matthias said to him: Didst thou not hear the Lord saying, I shall send you like sheep into the midst of wolves?[17]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in The First Epistle of Pope Fabian

Follow not such, but keep them far off from you. Be ye, according to the voice of Truth, wise as serpents and harmless as doves.[6]

Matt. 10:16 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

Wherefore, brethren, leaving [willingly] our sojourn in this present world, let us do the will of Him that called us, and not fear to depart out of this world. For the Lord saith, "Ye shall be as lambs in the midst of wolves."[27]

Matt. 10:17 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

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."[345]

Matt. 10:17 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

So we preach throughout all the world; nay, no special care even for Israel has been laid upon us, save as also we are bound to preach to all nations, Yes, and if we are apprehended, we shall not be brought into Jewish councils, nor scourged in Jewish synagogues, but we shall certainly be cited before Roman magistrates and judgment-seats.[19]

Matt. 10:17 - NIV, NAB - in Peter of Alexandria Canonical Epistle

As it was with Him it happens to those who walk keeping Him before them as an example, recollecting His divine words, in which, confirming us, He speaks of persecution: "Take heed unto yourselves, for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues."[27]

Matt. 10:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book II

And who is there who would not be astonished at this prediction: "Ye shall be brought before governors and kings for My sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles; "[49]

Matt. 10:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book II

And observe whether it is not with great authority that this declaration is uttered: "Whosoever therefore shall confess Me before men, him will I confess also before My Father who is in heaven. And whosoever shall deny Me before men,"[51]

Matt. 10:18 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle XXV

And again," Because ye shall stand before kings and powers, and the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the son, and he that endureth to the end shall be saved; "[6]

Matt. 10:18 - NIV, NAB - in Peter of Alexandria Canonical Epistle

Now, He says, they will deliver you up, and not, ye shall deliver up yourselves; and "ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for My sake,"[28]

Matt. 10:18 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

hat on their introduction into the school of Christ the Jews were taught by the disciples glorious things about Jesus, so that in due season there might be built upon these as a foundation the things about Jesus being the Christ; and perhaps many of the things which were said to them were said to all who virtually believed; for not to the Apostles alone did the saying apply, "Before governors and kings also shall ye be brought for My sake for a testimony to them and to the Gentiles; "[120]

Matt. 10:19 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Scorpiace

" How would Christ speak, but in accordance with the treatment to which the Christian would be subjected? But when He forbids thinking about what answer to make at a judgment-seat,[74]

Matt. 10:19 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle VIII

"When they," says He, "deliver you up, take no thought what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you."[5]

Matt. 10:19 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LIII

For the Lord says in His Gospel: "But when they deliver you up, take no thought what ye shall speak; for it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you."[6]

Matt. 10:19 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LV

The uncorrupted and unconquered might of the Holy Spirit broke forth by their mouth, so that the words which the Lord in His Gospel spoke are seen to be true: "But when they shall seize you, take no thought what ye shall speak; for it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you."[13]

Matt. 10:19 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LXXVI

For that it is His doing that we conquer, and that we attain by the subduing of the adversary to the palm of the greatest contest, the Lord declares and teaches in His Gospel, saying, "But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak; for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you."[11]

Matt. 10:19 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LXXXII

For whatever, in that moment of confession, the confessor-bishop speaks, he speaks in the mouth of all, by inspiration of God.[3]

Matt. 10:19 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XI Exhortation to Martyrdom Addressed to Fortunatus

For it shall be given you in that hour what ye shall speak. For it is not ye who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaketh in you."[79]

Matt. 10:19 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Also in the same place: "But when they shall deliver you up, take no thought what ye shall speak; for it is not ye who speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you."[480]

Matt. 10:20 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

That is the Spirit of whom the Lord declares, "For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you."[308]

Matt. 10:21 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book I

and again, "Taking up the cross follow me; "[49]

Matt. 10:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Scorpiace

For so is it brought to pass, that the brother delivers up the brother to death, and the father the son: and the children rise up against the parents, and cause them to die. And he who endureth to the end let that man be saved.[71]

Matt. 10:21 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

and perhaps also not to the Apostles absolutely, but to all who were about to believe the word, "And brother shall deliver up brother to death,"[121]

Matt. 10:22 - NIV, NAB - in Address of Tatian to the Greeks

For what reason, men of Greece, do you wish to bring the civil powers, as in a pugilistic encounter, into collision with us? And, if I am not disposed to comply with the usages of some of them, why am I to be abhorred as a vile miscreant?[5]

Matt. 10:22 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Who is the Rich Man that Shall Be Saved?

For it is neither the faith, nor the love, nor the hope, nor the endurance of one day, but "he that endureth to the end shall be saved."[57]

Matt. 10:22 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian The Prescription Against Heretics

but the Christian; and no one is a Christian but he who perseveres even to the end.[20]

Matt. 10:22 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Flesh of Christ

I am safe, if I am not ashamed of my Lord. "Whosoever," says He, "shall be ashamed of me, of him will I also be ashamed."[71]

Matt. 10:22 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

Unhappy, therefore, they who, by running away, will not suffer according to the divine command. "He who shall endure to the end shall be saved."[27]

Matt. 10:22 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle V

And the Lord also says, "He that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved."[5]

Matt. 10:22 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle XXXVI

saith the Lord. They have confessed Him "He that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved,"[3]

Matt. 10:22 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise I On the Unity of the Church

Confession is the beginning of glory, not the full desert of the crown; nor does it perfect our praise, but it initiates our dignity; and since it is written, "He that endureth to the end, the same shall be saved,"[58]

Matt. 10:22 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise IX On the Advantage of Patience

It is the wholesome precept of our Lord and Master: "He that endureth," saith He, "unto the end, the same shall be saved; "[27]

Matt. 10:22 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XI Exhortation to Martyrdom Addressed to Fortunatus

Moreover, in the Gospel the Lord speaks, and says: "He that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved."[55]

Matt. 10:22 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book V

And, "He that endureth unto the end, the same shall be saved."[9]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in Martyrdom of Polycarp

Wherefore, brethren, we do not commend those who give themselves up [to suffering], seeing the Gospel does not teach so to do.[9]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book IV

When, again, He says, "When they persecute you in this city, flee ye to the other,"[113]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian To His Wife Book I

to take advantage of the permission granted, and "flee from town to town,"[25]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

For so a certain individual, but a fugitive likewise has chosen to maintain, and others have done the same who are unwilling to understand the meaning of that declaration of the Lord, that they may use it as a cloak for their cowardice, although it has had its persons as well as its times and reasons to which it specially applies. "When they begin," He says, "to persecute you, flee from city to city,"[17]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

Neither were they to flee to any city as if by stealth, but as if everywhere about to proclaim their message; and for this, everywhere about to undergo persecutions, until they should fulfil their teaching. Accordingly the Saviour says, "Ye will not go over all the cities of Israel."[20]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book I

"If they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another; and if they persecute you in the other, flee again into a third,"[129]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in Peter of Alexandria Canonical Epistle

but not, ye shall bring yourselves, for He would have us pass from place to place as long as there are those who persecute us for His name's sake; even as again we hear Him saying, "But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another."[29]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book V

Receive also those that are persecuted on account of the faith, and who "fly from city to city"[5]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book V

For in the world ye have tribulation: for they shall deliver you into the synagogues; and ye shall be brought before rulers and kings for my sake, and for a testimony to them."[8]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book VIII

on account of the faith, and who fly from city to city,[201]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in The Second Epistle of Pope Callistus

If, however, he is persecuted in his own church, he must flee to another, and attach himself to it, as the Lord says: "If they persecute you in one city, flee ye into another."[9]

Matt. 10:23 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book X

For who would still hesitate about avoiding such things, when not only did Jesus retreat in view of what happened to John, but also taught and said, "If they persecute you in this city, flee ye into the other"?[167]

Matt. 10:24 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book II

If, then, the Son was not ashamed to ascribe the knowledge of that day to the Father only, but declared what was true regarding the matter, neither let us be ashamed to reserve for God those greater questions which may occur to us. For no man is superior to his master.[240]

Matt. 10:24 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book II

Accordingly we don't fly, since we neither can nor wish; we do not swim at present, for example, since we can indeed, but do not choose; and we are not as the Lord, since we wish, but cannot be: "for no disciple is above his master, and it is sufficient if we be as the master: "[179]

Matt. 10:24 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian A Treatise on the Soul

These persons, who are "servants above their Lord, and disciples above their Master,"[315]

Matt. 10:24 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book IV

heresy, which is for ever mending the Gospels, and corrupting them in the act, is an affair of man's audacity, not of God's authority; and if Marcion be even a disciple, he is yet not "above his master; "[102]

Matt. 10:24 - NIV, NAB - in Pseudo-Tertullian Against All Heresies

not agreeing with Cerinthus in every point; in that he affirms the world[49]

Matt. 10:24 - NIV, NAB - in Pseudo-Tertullian Against All Heresies

lord, "[50]

Matt. 10:24 - NIV, NAB - in The Second Epistle of Pope Fabian

In like manner we decree and ordain by apostolic authority, that the flock should not dare to bring a charge against their pastor, to whose care they had been consigned, unless he falls into error in the faith; for the deeds of superiors are not to be smitten with the sword of the mouth; neither can the disciple be above the master, as the voice of Truth saith, "The disciple is not above his master, nor the servant above his lord."[22]

Matt. 10:25 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book V

For "He came to divide a man against his father, and the daughter against the mother, and the daughter-in-law against the mother-in-law; "[235]

Matt. 10:25 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Of which members of the household it is said in the Gospel: "If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much rather them of his household!"[726]

Matt. 10:25 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement II

Where, then, is the consistency of that other saying of his, `it is enough for the disciple that he be as his master? '"[22]

Matt. 10:26 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book I

"For there is nothing hidden which shall not be revealed, nor secret that shall not be made known."[7]

Matt. 10:26 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Veiling of Virgins

, they have the audacity to draw near to God with head bare. But the "jealous God and Lord," who has said, "Nothing covered which shall not be revealed,"[53]

Matt. 10:26 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement III

For if you had been willing to hear, that saying would have been exemplified in you, of Him who said that `there is nothing hidden which shall not be known, nor covered which shall not be disclosed.'"[5]

Matt. 10:26 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XIV

for a record, as it were, is made of all things that have been spoken and done and thought, and by divine power every hidden thing of ours shall be manifested, and everything that is covered shall be revealed,[61]

Matt. 10:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

But the wise do not utter with their mouth what they reason in council. "But what ye hear in the ear," says the Lord, "proclaim upon the houses; "[146]

Matt. 10:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book VI

Comprehending this, as He who taught wished, and receiving it in its grand sense, he teaches worthily "on the housetops"[221]

Matt. 10:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian The Prescription Against Heretics

He had Himself commanded that, "whatsoever they had heard in darkness" and in secret, they should "declare in the light and on the house-tops."[281]

Matt. 10:27 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Exegetical Fragments

He took the book, therefore, and loosed it, in order that the things spoken concerning Him of old in secret, might now be proclaimed with boldness upon the house-tops.[178]

Matt. 10:27 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

And likewise he who holds that the fact that He was Christ had been formerly proclaimed by the Apostles when they heard the saying, "What I tell you in the darkness, speak ye in the light, and what ye hear in the ear proclaim on the housetops,"[123]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in First Apology of Justin

and, "Fear not them that kill you, and after that can do no more; but fear Him who after death is able to cast both soul and body into hell."[43]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

For this purpose did He give them this exhortation: "Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to send both soul and body into hell; "[346]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Shepherd of Hermas Commandment Twelfth

But as to the threats of the devil, fear them not at all, for he is powerless as the sinews of a dead man. Give ear to me, then, and fear Him who has all power, both to save and destroy,[18]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

But He also teaches us, that "He is rather to be feared, who is able to destroy both body and soul in hell," that is, the Lord alone; "not those which kill the body, but are not able to hurt the soul,"[229]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

striking down not the body only, but the souls too, into hell.[39]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

"Fear not them who are able to kill the body, but are unable to do ought against the soul; but fear Him who can destroy both body and soul in hell."[28]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LV

He is to be feared whose anger no one can escape, as He Himself forewarns, and says: "Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both body and soul in hell."[18]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LXXX

And again: "Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."[8]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XI Exhortation to Martyrdom Addressed to Fortunatus

Whence the Lord exhorts and strengthens us to contempt of death, saying: "Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him which is able to kill soul and body in Gehenna."[40]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Also in the same place: "Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him which is able to kill the soul and body in Gehenna."[483]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

is man? For what if the divinity in Christ does not die, but the substance of the flesh only is destroyed, when in other men also, who are not flesh only, but flesh and soul, the flesh indeed alone suffers the inroads of wasting and death, while the soul is seen to be uncorrupted, and beyond the laws of destruction and death? For this also our Lord Himself said, exhorting us to martyrdom and to contempt of all human power: "Fear not those who slay the body, but cannot kill the soul."[193]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise Against the Heretic Novatian by an Anonymous Bishop

It is then He who must be revered by us; He must be held fast; He must be propitiated by our full and worthy confession, "who has the power of sending soul and body to the Gehenna of fire,"[67]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

If it is your intention to persecute me, I am prepared for it: and if you wish to involve me in punishment, I shall not shrink from it; yea, if you mean even to put me to death, I am not afraid: "For we ought to fear Him only who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."[562]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Genuine Acts of Peter of Alexandria

escended to the interior part of the prison, and according to the agreement made, made a sound on the wall; and those outside hearing this, forcing an aperture, received this athlete of Christ armed on all sides with no brazen breastplate, but with the virtue of the cross of the Lord, and fully prepared to carry out the Lord's words who said, "Fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear Him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."[21]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book V

And afterwards: "Fear not them that kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell."[12]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

the wolves; and in like manner, fear not ye them that kill you, and can do nothing more unto you; but fear Him who, after you are dead, has power over both soul and body to cast them into hell-fire."[40]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily XVII

For sometimes by other utterances, taken from the Scriptures, he presents God as being terrible and just, saying,[10]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in Martyrdom Of the Holy Confessors

But we, listening to the words of Christ, will "not be afraid of those that kill the body but are not able to kill the soul: "Him rather will we fear "who is able to destroy our soul and body."[9]

Matt. 10:28 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

the wolves; and in like manner, fear not ye them that kill you, and can do nothing more unto you; but fear Him who, after you are dead, has power over both soul and body to cast them into hell-fire."[30]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book II

larger and others smaller heads, some have bushy heads of hair, others thin, and others scarcely any hair at all,-and then those who imagine that they have discovered the number of the hairs, should endeavour to apply that for the commendation of their own sect which they have conceived? Or again, if any one should, because of this expression which occurs in the Gospel, "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and not one of them falls to the ground without the will of your Father,"[218]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book V

For how can he make grants to him who has fallen? Moreover, since God rules over men and him too, and without the will of our Father in heaven not even a sparrow falls to the ground,[197]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

, whilst confirming us in the selfsame hope, adds the example of "the sparrows"-how that "not one of them falls to the ground without the will of God."[232]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Exhortation to Chastity

without whose will neither does a leaf glide down from a tree, nor a sparrow of one farthing's worth fall to the earth.[9]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Monogamy

-for fear, namely, that he contravene the Lord: for He alone shall "separate" who has "conjoined" (separate, moreover, not through the harshness of divorce, which (harshness) He censures and restrains, but through the debt of death) if, indeed, "one of two sparrows falleth not on the ground without the Father's will."[77]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

Believe it most surely, if indeed you believe in that God without whose will not even the sparrow, a penny can buy, falls to the ground.[16]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book III

, that nothing comes to man without (the will of) God, when our Lord and Saviour declares, "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them shall not fall on the ground without your Father who is in heaven."[315]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VIII

For of "two sparrows which are sold for a farthing," as the Scripture says, "not one of them falls on the ground without our Father in heaven."[133]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LIV

No one, pleasing himself, and swelling with arrogance, would found a new heresy, separate and without, unless any one be of such sacrilegious daring and abandoned mind, as to think that a priest is made without God's judgment, when the Lord says in His Gospel, "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and one of them does not fall to the ground without the will of your Father."[25]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LXVIII

This is not to believe in God-this is to stand forth as a rebel against Christ and His Gospel; so that although He says, "Are not two sparrows sold for a farthing? and neither of them falls to the ground without the will of my Father,"[3]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

And lest moreover any one should think that such an indefatigable providence of God does not reach to even the very least things, "One of two sparrows," says the Lord, "shall not fall without the will of the Father; but even the very hairs of your head are all numbered."[40]

Matt. 10:29 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily XII

But to the wicked who punish and desire to ill-use them, and will not repent, it is permitted to ill-use the righteous for the filling up of their own punishment. For without the will of God, not even a sparrow can fall into a girn.[13]

Matt. 10:30 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book II

For how would it be, if any one, gradually elated by attempts of the kind referred to, should, because the Lord said that "even the hairs of your head are all numbered,"[217]

Matt. 10:30 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book III

But the embellishment of smoothing (for I am warned by the Word), if it is to attract men, is the act of an effeminate person,-if to attract women, is the act of an adulterer; and both must be driven as far as possible from our society. "But the very hairs of your head are all numbered," says the Lord;[30]

Matt. 10:30 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

for the very reason that, when fallen, we rise again. He affirms, lastly, that "the very hairs of our head are all numbered,"[234]

Matt. 10:30 - NIV, NAB - in Acts of Andrew and Matthias

Where are Thy words, Lord, which Thou spakest to us, confirming us, when we walked about with Thee, saying to us, Ye shall not lose one hair?[34]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book IV

Whosoever therefore shall confess in Me before men, him will I also confess before my Father in heaven.[104]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

, He will confess those who confess Him, and deny those who deny Him, before His Father.[375]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

If to flee, how to suffer? If to suffer, how to flee? In fact, what utter inconsistency in the decrees of One who commands to flee, and yet urges to suffer, which is the very opposite! "Him who will confess Me, I also will confess before My Father."[24]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle IX

n our brotherhood is deceived by some of you, who, while without the means of restoring salvation they desire to please, become a still greater stumbling-block to the lapsed, For that it is a very great crime which persecution has compelled to be committed, they themselves know who have committed it; since our Lord and Judge has said, "Whosoever shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father which is in heaven; but whosoever shall deny me, him will I also deny."[3]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle XXXVI

"Whosoever shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father which is in heaven,"[2]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XI Exhortation to Martyrdom Addressed to Fortunatus

And therefore in the Gospel He threatens, and says: "Whosoever shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father which is in heaven; but whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven."[37]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Also in the same place: "Whosoever shall confess me before men, him also will I confess before my Father which is in heaven; but he who shall deny me before men, him also will I deny before my Father which is in heaven. And he that shall endure to the end, the same shall be saved."[484]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise on Re-Baptism by an Anonymous Writer

has been punished before it has been granted him to be baptized with water? Wilt thou declare him to have perished because he has not been baptized with water? Or, indeed, wilt thou think that there may be something from without that helps him to salvation, although he is not baptized with water? Thy thinking him to have perished will be opposed by the sentence of the Lord, who says, "Whosoever shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father which is in heaven; "[31]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book V

For such a one is worthy of God, and will fulfil His will by supplying those who have confessed Him before nations and kings, and the children of Israel; concerning whom our Lord declared, saying: "Whosoever shall confess me before men, him will I also confess before my Father."[1]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

"Whosoever shall confess Me before men, him will I confess before My Father."[27]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

but by not denying Him through whom this knowledge has been attained? For He himself declares, "Whosoever shall confess me before men, him will I confess before my Father."[20]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

etc.; but, "Whosoever shall confess Me,"[122]

Matt. 10:32 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

arid bears testimony to the works of Christ, as making confession by all these things of Christ before men, will be confessed by Him before His Father in heaven.[167]

Matt. 10:33 - NIV, NAB - in Shepherd of Hermas Vision Second

For the Lord hath sworn by His Son, that those who denied their Lord have abandoned their life in despair, for even now these are to deny Him in the days that are coming.[14]

Matt. 10:33 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Idolatry

But "whosoever shall be ashamed of Me in the presence of men, of him will I too be ashamed," says He, "in the presence of my Father who is in the heavens."[100]

Matt. 10:33 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

Matt. 10:33 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle XXX

so it is written, "Whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father and before His angels."[19]

Matt. 10:33 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle LIV

And in the Gospel the Lord says, "Whosoever shall deny me, him will I deny."[41]

Matt. 10:33 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise Against the Heretic Novatian by an Anonymous Bishop

from that utterance of the Lord, where He says, "Whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I deny before my Father which is in heaven."[22]

Matt. 10:33 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book V

For of such a one our Lord declared, saying: "Whosoever shall deny me before men, and shall be ashamed of my name, I also will deny and be ashamed of him before my Father which is in heaven."[10]

Matt. 10:33 - NIV, NAB - in Martyrdom Of the Holy Confessors

For we have a Father in heaven whose will we follow, and He says: "He that shall confess Me before men, him will I also confess before My Father who is in heaven; but he that shall deny Me before men, him will I also deny before My Father and His angels."[6]

Matt. 10:33 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

but the separating power when He said, "I came not to send peace, but a word."[50]

This sword the Lord Himself came to send on earth, and not peace.[201]

Matt. 10:34 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Scorpiace

"For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law. And a man's foes shall be they of his own household."[70]

Matt. 10:34 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Refutation of All Heresies Book V

For when the animal is dead, each of its parts is separated; and when dissolution takes place, the animal in this way vanishes. This is, he says, what has been spoken: "I came not to send peace on the earth, but a sword,"[239]

Matt. 10:34 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

and here, the Lord Jesus said, "I came to send a sword upon the earth, and to set a man at variance with his neighbour,"[535]

And that He might show to the apostles that He was announcing judgment, He says: "I came not to send peace, but a sword."[8]

Matt. 10:34 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement II

in opposition to your Master, and that what you propose is not suitable to him who promises that he will overthrow ignorance? Or, if you are right in asking peace from the audience, then your Master was wrong in saying, `I have not come to send peace on earth, but a sword.'[20]

Matt. 10:34 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement VI

And in this manner the battle of knowledge and ignorance, of truth and error, arises between believing and unbelieving kinsmen and relations. And therefore He who has sent us said again `I am not come to send peace on earth, but a sword.'[6]

Matt. 10:34 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily XI

Matt. 10:37 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Prayer

had commanded even Abraham to make a sacrifice of his son, for the sake not of tempting, but proving, his faith; in order through him to make an example for that precept of His, whereby He was, by and by, to enjoin that he should hold no pledges of affection dearer than God.[60]

Matt. 10:37 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

And then what does He allot to the fearful? "He who will value his life more than Me, is not worthy of Me; and he who takes not up his cross and follows Me, cannot be My disciple."[29]

Matt. 10:37 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle XXV

For to this battle our Lord, as with the trumpet of His Gospel, stimulates us when He says, "He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me: and he that loveth his own soul more than me is not worthy of me. And he that taketh not his cross, and followeth after me, is not worthy of me."[4]

Matt. 10:37 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise VIII On Works and Alms

recall the Christian from good and righteous works, that any one should fancy that he could be excused for the benefit of his children; since in spiritual expenditure we ought to think of Christ, who has declared that He receives them; and not prefer our fellow-servants, but the Lord, to our children, since He Himself instructs and warns us, saying, "He that loveth father or mother more than me is not worthy of me, and he that loveth son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me."[48]

Also in the Gospel according to Matthew: "He that loveth father or mother above me, is not worthy of me; and he that loveth son or daughter above me, is not worthy of me; and he that taketh not up his cross and followeth me, is not my disciple."[502]

Matt. 10:37 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

Matt. 10:37 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book V

For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own souL? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? "[11]

Matt. 10:38 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

And to the same effect is the saying, "He that doth not take his cross and follow behind Me is not worthy of Me."[153]

Matt. 10:39 - NIV, NAB - in Shepherd of Hermas Vision Second

Happy ye who endure the great tribulation that is coming on, and happy they who shall not deny their own life.[13]

Matt. 10:39 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book IV

And abstinence from vicious acts is found, somehow, [to result in] the diminution and extinction of vicious propensities, their energy being destroyed by inaction. And this is the import of "Sell what thou hast, and give to the poor, and come, follow Me"[28]

Matt. 10:39 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Scorpiace

-that is, he who will rather live by denying, than die by confessing, me; and "he who findeth his life shall lose it; but he who loseth it for my sake shall find it."[73]

Matt. 10:39 - NIV, NAB - in Pseudo-Cyprian On the Glory of Martyrdom

That is the very voice of Christ, who says: "He that loveth his life in this world, shall lose it in the world to come; but he that hateth his life in this world, shall find it in the world to come."[29]

Matt. 10:39 - NIV, NAB - in Martyrdom of Habib the Deacon

Habib said: Nay, we do not hate our bodies: the Scripture distinctly teaches us, "Whosoever shall lose his life shall find it."[29]

"Whosoever shall receive," says He, "a prophet in the name of a prophet, shall receive a prophet's reward; and whosoever shall receive a righteous man in the name of a righteous man, shall receive a righteous man's reward; and whoso shall receive one of the least of these my disciples, shall not lose his reward."[47]
