Matt. 11 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book IV

had been through John preparing the ways of the Lord, should now depart from John,[673]

Matt. 11 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book II

And our Lord is often recorded in the Gospel to have said: "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear."[43]

Matt. 11:2 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book X

But since we learned, in the first place, that when the Saviour after the temptation heard that John was given up, He retreated into Galilee, and in the second place, that when John was in prison and heard the things about Jesus he sent two of his disciples and said to Him, "Art thou He that cometh, or look we for another? "[149]

Matt. 11:3 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

The second, whose meaning is understood from the present times, as being apprehended by perception; as it was said to those who asked the Lord, "If He was the Christ, or shall we wait for another? Go and tell John, the blind receive their sight, the deaf hear, the lepers are cleansed, the dead are raised up; and blessed is he who shall not be offended in Me."[237]

Matt. 11:3 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book I

And again each Gospel tells of the sojourn of the good Father in the Son with those minded to receive Him, as is plain to every believer; and moreover by these books a good is announced which had been formerly expected, as is by no means hard to see. For John the Baptist spoke in the name almost of the whole people when he sent to Jesus and asked,[32]

Matt. 11:3 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book VI

In the case of Christ nothing of this sort is reported to have been done by the Jews; but what the Jews do to John, John does to Christ, sending his own disciples to ask him,[32]

Matt. 11:4 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book VI

But in the one case for the purpose of being warmed; and in the other, we are compelled to be Christians in order to be excellent and good. For the kingdom belongs pre-eminently to the violent,[283]

Matt. 11:4 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

than that He was truly the Son of God who wrought works so mighty? In respect of which things He said also to the disciples of John, "Go your way and tell John what great things ye see and hear; the blind receive their sight," etc.[15]

Matt. 11:5 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book VIII

Nor were the former shamed by the rod which was turned into a living serpent, nor by the hand which was made white with leprosy, nor by the river Nile turned into blood; nor the latter by the blind who recovered their sight, nor by the lame who walked, nor by the dead who were raised.[11]

Matt. 11:7 - NIV, NAB - in Five Books in Reply to Marcion

145 August in life, and marked with praise sublime,[74]

Matt. 11:8 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Idolatry

unadorned in dress, for else He had not said, "Behold, they who are clad in soft raiment are in kings' houses: "[144]

Matt. 11:8 - NIV, NAB - in Acts of the Holy Apostle Thomas

And if we speak of fine clothing, which they who delight in this life put on, it has been said, They that wear soft things are in kings' palaces;[26]

Matt. 11:8 - NIV, NAB - in The Teaching of Addaeus the Apostle

of paganism wherewith they had been afflicted. Jews also, traders in fine raiment,[54]

Matt. 11:9 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

For whom, then, did he prepare the people, and in the sight of what Lord was he made great? Truly of Him who said that John had something even "more than a prophet,"[91]

Matt. 11:9 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

John, therefore, having been sent by the founder and maker of this world, how could he testify of that Light, which came down from things unspeakable and invisible? For all the heretics have decided that the Demiurge was ignorant of that Power above him, whose witness and herald John is found to be. Wherefore the Lord said that He deemed him "more than a prophet."[132]

Matt. 11:9 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Monogamy

Turning now to the law, which is properly ours-that is, to the Gospel-by what kind of examples are we met, until we come to definite dogmas? Behold, there immediately present themselves to us, on the threshold as it were, the two priestesses of Christian sanctity, Monogamy and Continence: one modest, in Zechariah the priest; one absolute, in John the forerunner: one appeasing God; one preaching Christ: one proclaiming a perfect priest; one exhibiting "more than a prophet,"[63]

Matt. 11:9 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement I

"And, behold, one of the disciples of John asserted that John was the Christ, and not Jesus, inasmuch as Jesus Himself declared that John was greater than all men and all prophets.[56]

Matt. 11:9 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book VI

" (One might indeed get past this passage by laying stress on the word called: he is to be called, he is not said to be, a prophet.) And still more weighty is it that the Saviour said to those who considered John to be a prophet,[54]

Matt. 11:10 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

alled him an "angel," on account of the magnitude of the mighty deeds which he was to achieve (which mighty deeds Joshua the son of Nun did, and you yourselves read), and on account of his office of prophet announcing (to wit) the divine will; just as withal the Spirit, speaking in the person of the Father, calls the forerunner of Christ, John, a future "angel," through the prophet: "Behold, I send mine angel before Thy"-that is, Christ's-"face, who shall prepare Thy way before Thee."[173]

Matt. 11:10 - NIV, NAB - in Gospel of Nicodemus I The Acts of Pilate

And Rabbi Isaac said: It is written in the law, Behold, I send my messenger before thy face, who shall go before thee to keep thee in every good way, because my name has been called upon him.[58]

Matt. 11:10 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book VI

We shall understand this aright if we call to mind what was adduced in our exposition of the texts: "That all might believe through Him," and "This is he of whom it is written, Behold I send My messenger before thy face, who shall prepare thy way before thee."[62]

Matt. 11:11 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Who is the Rich Man that Shall Be Saved?

Similarly also He says that "the least in the kingdom of heaven" that is His own disciple "is greater than John, the greatest among those bern of women."[49]

Matt. 11:11 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Baptism

none greater than John the Baptist."[123]

Matt. 11:11 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he,"[608]

Matt. 11:11 - NIV, NAB - in The First Epistle of Clement Concerning Virginity

John, the ambassador, he who came before our Lord, he "than whom there was not a greater among those born of women,"[48]

Matt. 11:11 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book X

but by the former, John, "than whom no one greater hath risen among those born of women,"[159]

Matt. 11:11 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XIII

And every one will acknowledge that even though all these were great according to the Scripture, yet the Saviour was greater than they. But whether John also (than whom there was no greater among those born of women),[101]

Matt. 11:12 - NIV, NAB - in Dialogue of Justin

receive it, he is Elijah, who was to come. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear.'[164]

Matt. 11:12 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

On this account, too, did the Lord assert that the kingdom of heaven was the portion of "the violent; "and He says, "The violent take it by force; "[616]

Matt. 11:12 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book IV

"For narrow," in truth, "and strait is the way" of the Lord. And it is to the "violent that the kingdom of God belongs."[1]

Matt. 11:12 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

"For the violent that storm the kingdom "[39]

Matt. 11:12 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Who is the Rich Man that Shall Be Saved?

Nor does the kingdom of heaven belong to sleepers and sluggards, "but the violent take it by force."[24]

Matt. 11:12 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Prayer

Prayer is alone that which vanquishes[196]

Matt. 11:12 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book VI

by those who use violence[72]

Matt. 11:13 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

This, then, is the type of "the law and the prophets which were until John; "[106]

Matt. 11:13 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

In short, if this is not so, let the Jews exhibit, subsequently to Christ, any volumes of prophets, visible miracles wrought by any angels, (such as those) which in bygone days the patriarchs saw until the advent of Christ, who is now come; since which event "sealed is vision and prophecy," that is, confirmed. And justly does the evangelist[115]

Matt. 11:13 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

And thus, the former gifts of grace being withdrawn, "the law and the prophets were until John,"[311]

Matt. 11:13 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

according to the apostle; and "the law and the prophets (were) until John,"[54]

Matt. 11:13 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Fasting

and that these are now the only legitimate days for Christian fasts, the legal and prophetical antiquities having been abolished: for wherever it suits their wishes, they recognise what is the meaning of" the Law and the prophets until John."[6]

Matt. 11:13 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

In the Gospel also: "All the prophets and the law prophesied until John."[52]

Matt. 11:13 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book VI

And the question may be raised how, if the whole city of Jerusalem, and the whole of Judaea, and the whole region round about Jordan, were baptized of John in Jordan, the Saviour could say,[98]

Matt. 11:14 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian A Treatise on the Soul

and again, in another passage, "And if ye will receive it, this is Elias, which was for to come."[250]

Matt. 11:14 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Refutation of All Heresies Book VIII

And (we may learn, according to the Docetae, the same) from the expressions of the Saviour, "And if ye will receive it, this is Elias that was for to come. He that hath ears to hear, let him hear."[19]

Matt. 11:14 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book II

" He who sedulously guards himself in his dealings with Scripture against forced, or casual, or capricious procedure, must necessarily assume that John's soul was older than his body, and subsisted by itself before it was sent on the ministry of the witness of the light. Nor must we overlook the text, "This is Elijah which is to come."[95]

Matt. 11:14 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book II

Thus, in all his life, he is a little before Christ, and everywhere makes ready for the Lord a people prepared for Him. And John's testimony precedes also the second and diviner coming of Christ, for we read,[116]

Matt. 11:14 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book VI

they asked him, What then? Art thou Elijah? and he said, I am not." No one can fail to remember in this connection what Jesus says of John,[35]

Matt. 11:14 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book X

Just as because of the spirit and the power of Elijah, and not because of his soul, it is said about John, "This is Elijah which is to come,"[144]

Matt. 11:15 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

Now faith is the ear of the soul. And such the Lord intimates faith to be, when He says, "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear; "[1]

Matt. 11:15 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book VI

says the Scripture, plainly in the way of declaring them to the unworthy. For the Lord says, "He that hath ears to hear, let him hear,"[226]

Matt. 11:16 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

And, again, He likens the kingdom of heaven to children sitting in the market-places and saying, "We have piped unto you, and ye have not danced; we have mourned, and ye have not lamented; "[23]

Matt. 11:17 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book X

And up to this point I think that the movements of the people of the Jews, which seem to be according to the law, were nothing else than the movements of the daughter of Herodias; but the dancing of Herodias was opposed to that holy dancing with which those who have not danced will be reproached when they hear the words. "We piped unto you, and ye did not dance."[157]

Matt. 11:18 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book III

Quin etiam Dominus de seipso dicens: "Venit," inquit, "Joannes, nec comedens, nec bibens, et dicunt: daemonium habet; venit Filius hominis comedarts et bibens, et dicunt: Ecce homo vorax et vini potor, amicus publicanorum, et peccator."[72]

Matt. 11:19 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

At what time, then, did He pour out upon the human race the life-giving seed-that is, the Spirit of the remission of sins, through means of whom we are quickened? Was it not then, when He was eating with men, and drinking wine upon the earth? For it is said, "The Son of man came eating and drinking;[438]

Matt. 11:19 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book II

But that it was wine which was drunk by the Lord, He tells us again, when He spake concerning Himself, reproaching the Jews for their hardness of heart: "For the Son of man," He says, "came, and they say, Behold a glutton and a wine-bibber, a friend of publicans."[81]

Matt. 11:19 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Monogamy

); while that "man gluttonous and toping," the "frequenter of luncheons and suppers, in the company of publicans and sinners,"[74]

Matt. 11:19 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

name,-a (name) of such as put up the pathways of the very sky, and earth, and sea, for sale. Moreover, when (the writer) adjoins "sinners" to "publicans,"[101]

Matt. 11:19 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Fasting

while Himself withal was wont to eat and drink till He made Himself noted thus; "Behold, a gormandizer and a drinker: "[14]

Matt. 11:19 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book II

From his brave deeds he is often called a son, whether, from his works shining before men, of light, or from his possessing the peace of God which passes all understanding, of peace, or, once more, from the help which wisdom brings him, a child of wisdom; for wisdom,[4]

Matt. 11:20 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VI

And so great is this doctrine of humiliation, that it has no ordinary individual as its teacher; but our great Saviour Himself says: "Learn of Me, for I am meek and lowly of heart, and ye shall find rest for your souls."[88]

Matt. 11:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

The Lord Himself presumed repentance on the part of the Sidonians and Tyrians if they had seen the evidences of His "miracles."[116]

Matt. 11:22 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XIII

The occasions then which come are an army of the devil, his angels, and a wicked band of impure spirits, which, seeking out instruments through whom they will work, often find men altogether strangers to piety, and sometimes even some of those who are thought to believe the Word of God, for whom exists a worse woe than that which comes to him who is caused to stumble, just as also it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon in the day of judgment,[142]

Matt. 11:23 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

Verily I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable for Sodom in the day of judgment than for you."[570]

Matt. 11:23 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Fasting

Sodom also, and Gomorrah, would have escaped if they had fasted.[53]

Matt. 11:23 - NIV, NAB - in Word and Revelation of Esdras

And he said to me: The form of his countenance is like that of a wild beast; his right eye like the star that rises in the morning, and the other without motion; his mouth one cubit; his teeth span long; his fingers like scythes; the track of his feet of two spans; and in his face an inscription, Antichrist. He has been exalted to heaven; he shall go down to Hades.[22]

Matt. 11:24 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

And it is He who uses [the words], that it will be more tolerable for Sodom in the general judgment than for those who beheld His wonders, and did not believe on Him, nor receive His doctrine[575]

Matt. 11:25 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book I

All things have been delivered to Me by My Father; and no one knoweth the Father but the Son, or the Son but the Father, and he to whom the Son will reveal Him."[266]

Matt. 11:25 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

Again, our Lord Jesus Christ confesses this same Being as His Father, where He says: "I confess to thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth."[15]

Matt. 11:25 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

" He Himself adores.[371]

Matt. 11:25 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

, because Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent."[373]

Matt. 11:25 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XII Three Books of Testimonies Against the Jews

Also according to Mark: "And when ye stand for prayer, forgive, if ye have ought against any one; that also your Father who is in heaven may forgive you your sins. But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive you your sins."[538]

Matt. 11:25 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement IV

For this also the Master intimated, when He said, `I will confess' to Thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because Thou hast concealed these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them to babes.[9]

Matt. 11:25 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily VIII

And that this is so our Lord Himself says, `I thank thee, Father of heaven and earth, because Thou hast concealed these things from the wise and elder, and hast revealed them to sucking babes.'[9]

Matt. 11:25 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily XVII

" Now he who speaks of God as an avenging and rewarding God, presents Him as naturally just, and not as good. Moreover he gives thanks to the Lord of heaven and earth.[12]

Matt. 11:25 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily XVIII

And Simon, being vexed at this, said: "Blame your own teacher, who said, `I thank Thee, Lord of heaven and earth, that what was concealed from the wise, Thou hast revealed to suckling babes.'[18]

Matt. 11:25 - NIV, NAB - in Acts of the Holy Apostle Thomas

And the apostle, seized with joy, said: I make full confession[6]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in First Apology of Justin

And Jesus the Christ, because the Jews knew not what the Father was, and what the Son, in like manner accused them; and Himself said, "No one knoweth the Father, but the Son; nor the Son, but the Father, and they to whom the Son revealeth Him."[132]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in First Apology of Justin

And again, Jesus, as we have already shown, while He was with them, said, "No one knoweth the Father, but the Son; nor the Son but the Father, and those to whom the Son will reveal Him."[136]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Dialogue of Justin

For I have showed already that Christ is called both Jacob and Israel; and I have proved that it is not in the blessing of Joseph and Judah alone that what relates to Him was proclaimed mysteriously, but also in the Gospel it is written that He said: `All things are delivered unto me by My Father; 'and, `No man knoweth the Father but the Son; nor the Son but the Father, and they to whom the Son will reveal Him.'[381]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book II

Wherefore, although "no one knows the Father, except the Son, nor the Son except the Father, and those to whom the Son will reveal Him,"[27]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book II

is truth), then on their theory the Saviour spoke falsely when He said, "No one knoweth the Father but the Son,"[78]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

For the Lord, revealing Himself to His disciples, that He Himself is the Word, who imparts knowledge of the Father, and reproving the Jews, who imagined that they, had [the knowledge of] God, while they nevertheless rejected His Word, through whom God is made known, declared, "No man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whom the Son has willed to reveal [Him]."[60]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

In order, therefore, that we might know that the Son who came is He who imparts to those believing on Him a knowledge of the Father, He said to His disciples:[63]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

For the Son is the knowledge of the Father; but the knowledge of the Son is in the Father, and has been revealed through the Son; and this was the reason why the Lord declared: "No man knoweth the Son, but the Father; nor the Father, save the Son, and those to whomsoever the Son shall reveal [Him]."[69]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

Vain, therefore, ark those who, because of that declaration, "No man knoweth the Father, but the Son,"[83]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

Likewise does the Lord also say: "All things are delivered to Me by My Father; "[271]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Exhortation to the Heathen

For the gates of the Word being intellectual, are opened by the key of faith. No one knows God but the Son, and he to whom the Son shall reveal Him.[20]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

Of late, then, God was known by the coming of Christ: "For no man knoweth God but the Son, and he to whom the Son shall reveal Him."[43]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book I

"For no man knoweth the Son but the Father, nor the Father but the Son, and he to whom the Son shall reveal Him."[337]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book V

"No one," says the Lord, "hath known the Father but the Son, and he to whom the Son shall reveal Him."[156]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book VII

the Son, who taught the truth respecting God, and expressed the fact that the Almighty is the one and only God and Father, "whom no man knoweth but the Son, and he to whom the Son shall reveal Him."[88]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Who is the Rich Man that Shall Be Saved?

He then who would live the true life is enjoined first to know Him "whom no one knows, except the Son reveal (Him)."[7]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian The Prescription Against Heretics

Since the Lord Jesus Christ sent the apostles to preach, (our rule is) that no others ought to be received as preachers than those whom Christ appointed; for "no man knoweth the Father save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him."[213]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book II

With regard, however, to the Father, the very gospel which is common to us will testify that He was never visible, according to the word of Christ: "No man knoweth the Father, save the Son."[372]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

With us, however, the Son alone knows the Father,[84]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

and, "All things are delivered unto me by the Father; "[334]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Praxeas

;[374]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book I

the Son, save the Father; nor any one the Father, save the Son."[20]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book II

But to a nature that is incorporeal and for the most part intellectual, no other attribute is appropriate save that of knowing or being known, as the Saviour Himself declares when He says, "No man knoweth the Son, save the Father; nor does any one know the Father, save the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal Him."[53]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book II

seeing clearly also that it is written, "No one knoweth the Father, save the Son, nor doth any one know the Son, save the Father"[78]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VI

Nay, our Lord and Saviour, the Logos of God, manifesting that the greatness of the knowledge of the Father is appropriately comprehended and known pre-eminently by Him alone, and in the second place by those whose minds are enlightened by the Logos Himself and God, declares: "No man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father but the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him."[97]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VII

But when the Word of God says, "No man knoweth the Father but the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal Him,"[101]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Dogmatical and Historical Fragments

But if he desires to learn how it is shown still that there is one God, let him know that His power[234]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

is the only one that knows the Father, with the sole exception of him to whom He has chosen also to reveal Him,[385]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Alexander Epistles on the Arian Heresy

"For no man," says He, "knoweth the Son, but the Father: neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son."[16]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Alexander Epistles on the Arian Heresy

But men who are moved by the Spirit of truth, have no need to learn these things from me, for in our ears are sounding the words before uttered by Christ on this very thing," No man knoweth the Father, save the Son; and no man knoweth who the Son is, save the Father."[35]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement II

e world; and Enoch knew him, inasmuch as he was translated by him; and Noah, since he was ordered by him to construct the ark; and although Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, and Moses, and all, even every people and all nations, know the maker of the world, and confess him to be a God, yet your Jesus, who appeared long after the patriarchs, says: `No one knows the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any one the Father, but the Son, and he to whom the Son has been pleased to reveal Him.'[60]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily XVII

For the framer of the world was known to Adam whom He had made, and to Enoch who pleased Him, and to Noah who was seen to be just by Him; likewise to Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob; also to Moses, and the people, and the whole world. But Jesus, the teacher of Peter himself, came and said,[8]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily XVIII

And Simon said: "How, then, if the framer of the world, who also fashioned Adam, was known, and known too by those who were just according to the law, and moreover by the just and unjust, and the whole world, does your teacher, coming after all these, say,[7]

Matt. 11:27 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book I

For as with us the word is a messenger of those things which tile mind perceives, so the Word of God, knowing the Father, since no created being can approach Him without a guide, reveals the Father whom He knows. For no one knows the Father save the Son,[189]

Matt. 11:28 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book I

And again, when He said, "Come unto Me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest, and learn of Me,"[264]

Matt. 11:28 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Exhortation to the Heathen

Take My yoke upon you, and learn of Me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest to your souls. For My yoke is easy, and My burden light."[173]

Matt. 11:28 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

And again He says, "Come all to Me, who labour, and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest; "[241]

Matt. 11:28 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book II

he calls vice a servile thing, and virtue the attribute of freemen. "Take away from you the heavy yoke, and take up the easy one,"[52]

Matt. 11:28 - NIV, NAB - in Fragments of Clement Found in the Oxford Edition
