Matt. 22 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily VIII

And this not you alone suffer through ignorance, but also some of our nation, who by evil deeds having been brought trader the power of the prince of wickedness, like persons invited to a supper by a father celebrating the marriage of his son, have not obeyed.[22]

Matt. 22:1 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

Then said the king to his servants, Take him away, hand and foot, and cast him into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. For many are called, but few are chosen."[576]

Matt. 22:2 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement IV

Meantime He has commanded us to go forth to preach, and to invite you to the supper of the heavenly King, which the Father hath prepared for the marriage of His Son, and that we should give you wedding garments, that is, the grace of baptism;[30]

Matt. 22:3 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

For He commissioned [messengers] to call people to the marriage, but they who did not obey Him deprived themselves of the royal supper.[626]

Matt. 22:3 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Dogmatical and Historical Fragments

Men, he says, "in the resurrection will be like the angels of God,"[424]

Matt. 22:3 - NIV, NAB - in Acts of the Holy Apostle Thomas

And the king has sent forth heralds to proclaim everywhere that all are to come to the marriage, rich and poor, bond and free, strangers and citizens. And if any one shall refuse and not come to the marriage, he will be answerable to the king.[6]

Matt. 22:7 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

This is the Father of our Lord, by whose providence all things consist, and all are administered by His command; and He confers His free gifts upon those who should [receive them]; but the most righteous Retributor metes out [punishment] according to their deserts, most deservedly, to the ungrateful and to those that are insensible of His kindness; and therefore does He say, "He sent His armies, and destroyed those murderers, and burned up their city."[585]

Matt. 22:10 - NIV, NAB - in Fragments of Papias

according as each one is or shall be worthy. And this is the couch[19]

Matt. 22:10 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book V

For all things belong to God, who supplies all with a suitable dwelling-place; even as His Word says, that a share is allotted to all by the Father, according as each person is or shall be worthy. And this is the couch on which the guests shall recline, having been invited to the wedding.[341]

Matt. 22:11 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

that is, in the bright beauty of the unwedded flesh. In the gospel even, "the wedding garment" may be regarded as the sanctity of the flesh.[193]

Matt. 22:11 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Modesty

are wont to be lifted by the torturers, and cast away into darkness,[105]

Matt. 22:11 - NIV, NAB - in Of the Journeyings of Philip the Apostle

giving away his own garment in winter, goes naked? or what enemy rejoices in the joy of the man that hates him? and what soldier goes to war without a full suit of armour? and what slave who has fulfilled his master's order will not be commended? and who in the race-coarse, having nobly run, does not receive the prize? and who that has washed his garments willingly defiles them? Behold, my bride chamber is ready; but blessed is he who has been found in it wearing the shining garment:[19]

Matt. 22:12 - NIV, NAB - in Fragments of Clement Found in the Oxford Edition

But the unlovely and unsightly man will hear, "Friend, how camest thou in here, without having a wedding garment? "[7]

Matt. 22:12 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book II

to him, "Friend, how camest thou in hither, not having a wedding garment? "and then ordered his servants, "Bind him hand and foot, and cast him into outer darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth."[59]

Matt. 22:12 - NIV, NAB - in The Letter of the Churches of Vienna and Lugdunum

But there were also some who remained without; namely, those who had no trace of faith, and no perception of the marriage garment,[31]

Matt. 22:13 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

But those who have indeed been called to God's supper, yet have not received the Holy Spirit, because of their wicked conduct "shall be," He declares, "cast into outer darkness."[581]

Matt. 22:13 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

And the third department of counsel consists of what is future, by which we are bidden guard against what is to happen; as also that was said, "They that fall into sins shall be cast into outer darkness, where there shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth,"[239]

Matt. 22:13 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

-not even a hair, as also not an eye nor a tooth. And yet whence shall come that "weeping and gnashing of teeth,"[236]

Matt. 22:14 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

so also is it the case here, that "many are called, but few chosen."[583]

Matt. 22:14 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

"And therefore many are called, but few chosen."[60]

Matt. 22:14 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on Matthew Book XII

to shame in regard to these things because of the great majority of those of the church who are thought to believe, it must be said to him not only "Many are called, but few chosen; "[85]

Matt. 22:17 - NIV, NAB - in First Apology of Justin

" And again He answered them, "Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's."[34]

Matt. 22:20 - NIV, NAB - in Hippolytus Refutation of All Heresies Book IX

, so that even they would not handle a current coin of the country, saying that they ought not either to carry, or behold, or fashion an image:[75]

Matt. 22:21 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book III

Much more [would this be the case with regard to] the Lord Himself, who did also direct us to "render unto Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and to God the things that are God's; "[57]

Matt. 22:21 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book II

And by those who rise from the water to the bait of righteousness, He admonishes us to take away luxury and avarice, as the coin from the fish; in order that He might displace vainglory; and by giving the stater to the tax-gatherers, and "rendering to Caesar the things which are Caesar's," might preserve "to God the things which are God's."[39]

Matt. 22:21 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book III

And of civil government: "Render to Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things which are God's."[190]

Matt. 22:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Idolatry

Idolatry is condemned, not on account of the persons which are set up for worship, but on account of those its observances, which pertain to demons. "The things which are Cµsar's are to be rendered to Cµsar."[116]

Matt. 22:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Corona

to devote your energies to mammon, and to depart from God? Will it be "Render unto Cµsar the things which are Cµsar's, and unto God the things which are God's,"[46]

Matt. 22:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

And as a matter of course, he is already a king-although he even now owes to Cµsar the things which are Cµsar's.[146]

Matt. 22:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Scorpiace

that is, the things which are Cµsar's to Cµsar, and the things which are God's to God;[108]

Matt. 22:21 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian De Fuga in Persecutione

Since, therefore, Caesar has imposed nothing on us after this fashion of a tributary sect-in fact, such an imposition never can be made,-with Antichrist now close at hand, and gaping for the blood, not for the money of Christians-how can it be pointed out to me that there is the command, "Render to Caesar the things which are Caesar's? "[55]

Matt. 22:21 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book II

Let not the heathen therefore know of your differences among One another, nor do you receive unbelievers as witnesses against yourselves, nor be judged by them, nor owe them anything on account of tribute or fear; but "render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's,"[212]

Matt. 22:21 - NIV, NAB - in The Ecclesiastical Canons of the Holy Apostles

Let a bishop, or presbyter, or deacon, who goes to the army, and desires to retain both the Roman government and the sacerdotal administration, be deprived. For "the things of Caesar belong to Caesar, and the things of God to God."[56]

Matt. 22:23 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Flesh of Christ

before the appearance of our modern Sadducees,[3]

Matt. 22:23 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

Their specious inquiry concerned the flesh, whether or not it would be subject to marriage after the resurrection; and they assumed the case of a woman who had married seven brothers, so that it was a doubtful point to which of them she should be restored.[238]

Matt. 22:23 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian To His Wife Book I

of her so many husbands; nor is any (husband) awaiting her to put her to confusion.[11]

Matt. 22:23 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Monogamy

for the purpose of raising up seed to his brother; and this may happen repeatedly to the same person, according to that crafty question of the Sadducees;[45]

Matt. 22:23 - NIV, NAB - in Methodius From the Discourse on the Resurrection

Whence it was that, having contrived the parable about the woman and the seven brethren, that they might cast doubt upon the resurrection of the flesh, "There came to Him,"[30]

Matt. 22:23 - NIV, NAB - in Methodius From the Discourse on the Resurrection

But as it was, He answered and said, "In the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels in heaven,"[31]

Matt. 22:23 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement I

as more righteous than others, began to separate themselves from the assembly of the people, and to deny the resurrection of the dead,[51]

Matt. 22:29 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

To those, therefore, who are ignorant of these matters, and on this account imagine that they have discovered another Father, justly does one say, "Ye do err, not knowing the Scriptures, nor the power of God."[49]

Matt. 22:29 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

" "For, touching the resurrection of the dead," He says, "have ye not read that which was spoken by God, saying, I am the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob?[50]

Matt. 22:29 - NIV, NAB - in Irenaeus Against Heresies Book IV

who was of the same substance as they were? How, too, could He have subdued[478]

Matt. 22:29 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Exhortation to Chastity

God; who have restored the honour of their flesh, and who have already dedicated themselves as sons of that (future) age, by slaying in themselves the concupiscence of lust, and that whole (propensity) which could not be admitted within Paradise![69]

Matt. 22:29 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise of Novatian Concerning the Trinity

For if Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, who, it is admitted, were only men, are manifested to be alive-for all they,[194]

Matt. 22:29 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

: You err, not knowing the Scriptures, neither the power of God.[244]

Matt. 22:29 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily II

And to those who err by reason of the false scriptures He fitly showed the cause of their error, saying, `Ye do therefore err, not knowing the true things of the Scriptures;[37]

Matt. 22:29 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily III

I remember that on one occasion He, finding fault with the Sadducees, said, `Wherefore ye do err, not knowing the true things of the Scriptures; and on this account ye are ignorant of the power of God.'[40]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Stromata Book III

Sed post resurrectionem, inquit, nec uxorem ducunt, nec hubnut.' "[56]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian A Treatise on the Soul

for in the time it represents there will be no more marriage.[258]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book V

in order, indeed, that it may be rendered a fit substance for the kingdom of God. "For we shall be like the angels."[479]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

To this discussion, however, our Lord's declaration puts an effectual end: "They shall be," says He, "equal unto the angels."[469]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Apparel of Women Book I

With what consistency do we mount that (future) judgment-seat to pronounce sentence against those whose gifts we (now) seek after? For you too, (women as you are, ) have the self-same angelic nature promised[21]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Monogamy

"But if 'in that age they will neither marry nor be given in marriage, but will be equal to angels,'[82]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book IV

And this is evident from the statement, that when all Who are saints have arrived at the summit of perfection, they are said to be made like, or equal to, the angels, agreeably to the declaration in the Gospels.[27]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book IV

"For in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but the righteous are as the angels in heaven,"[119]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Methodius Discourse II. Theophila

For there are some to whom it is not given to attain virginity; and there are others whom He no longer wills to be excited by procreations to lust, and to be defiled, but henceforth to meditate and to keep the mind upon the transformation of the body to the likeness of angels, when they "neither marry nor are given in marriage,"[19]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Methodius From the Discourse on the Resurrection

that those who shall obtain the resurrection shall then be as the angels.[28]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Recognitions of Clement III

Whence also angels, who are spirits, see God; and therefore men, as long as they are men, cannot see Him. But after the resurrection of the dead, when they shall have been made like the angels,[15]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Revelation of Saint John the Theologian

All the human race shall arise without bodies, as I told you that in the resurrection they neither marry nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God.[16]

Matt. 22:30 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Commentary on John Book II

But such a view is both foolish and impious, since the other Scriptures testify against this interpretation and declare that, when we are somewhat more advanced, we shall be equal to the angels.[57]

Matt. 22:31 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book II

The words, moreover, "Have you not read what was spoken by God to Moses: I am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob; He is not a God of the dead, but of the living,"[39]

Matt. 22:32 - NIV, NAB - in Origen Against Celsus Book VIII

Moreover, we are taught that "God is not the God of the dead, but of the living."[9]

Matt. 22:32 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Epistle XXVI

For far be it from the mercy of God and His uncontrolled might to suffer the number of the lapsed to be called the Church; since it is written, "God is not the God of the dead, but of the living."[5]

Matt. 22:32 - NIV, NAB - in Constitutions of the Holy Apostles Book VIII

re, whether immortal or mortal, is derived; who didst make man a rational creature, the citizen of this world, in his constitution mortal, and didst add the promise of a resurrection; who didst not suffer Enoch and Elijah to taste of death: "the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, who art the God of them, not as of dead, but as of living persons: for the souls of all men live with Thee, and the spirits of the righteous are in Thy hand, which no torment can touch; "[185]

Matt. 22:32 - NIV, NAB - in Clementine Homily III

And to those who say that Abraham and Isaac and Jacob are dead, He said, `God is not of the dead, but of the living.'[55]

Matt. 22:34 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian An Answer to the Jews

all the precepts which afterwards sprouted forth when given through Moses; that is, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God from thy whole heart and out of thy whole soul; Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself;[18]

Matt. 22:36 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Who is the Rich Man that Shall Be Saved?

The Master accordingly, when asked, "Which is the greatest of the commandments? "says, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy soul, and with all thy strength; "[37]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in Dialogue of Justin

They are these: `Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy strength, and thy neighbour as thyself.'[366]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book I

but to us He has addressed the exhortation, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God."[126]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book III

We may comprehend the commandments in two, as the Lord says, "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy strength; and thy neighbour as thyself." Then from these He infers, "on this hang the law and the prophets."[177]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria The Instructor Book III

" Especially conspicuous is the love of the Instructor set forth in various salutary commandments, in order that the discovery may be readier, from the abundance and arrangement of the Scriptures. We have the Decalogue[178]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Against Marcion Book II

. It proposed one for the obedient man, the other for the transgressor.[175]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh

the queen of His creation, the inheritor of His own liberality, the priestess of His religion, the champion of His testimony, the sister of His Christ! We know by experience the goodness of God; from His Christ we learn that He is the only God, and the very good. Now, as He requires from us love to our neighbour after love to Himself,[61]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian Scorpiace

and loving God, to wit, with all its strength (by which in the endurance of martyrdom it maintains the fight), with all its life[42]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On Fasting

I must love God, and my neighbour as myself:[17]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in Origen de Principiis Book II

And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself." And to these He added: "On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."[42]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise XI Exhortation to Martyrdom Addressed to Fortunatus

This is the first; and the second is like unto it, Thou shall love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."[21]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in A Treatise on Re-Baptism by an Anonymous Writer

Because by this deed he profits nothing who has not the love of that God and Christ who is announced by the law and the prophets and in the Gospel in this manner: "Thou shalt love the Lord thy God, with all thy heart, and with all thy mind, and with all thy thought; and thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. For on these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets; "[40]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in Didache

who made thee; second, thy neighbour as thyself;[5]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

But in what way shall we confess Him? By doing what He says, and not transgressing His commandments, and by honouring Him not with our lips only, but with all our heart and all our mind.[28]

Matt. 22:37 - NIV, NAB - in 2 Clement

But in what way shall we confess Him? By doing what He says, and not transgressing His commandments, and by honouring Him not with our lips only, but with all our heart and all our mind.[21]

Matt. 22:39 - NIV, NAB - in Athenagoras A Plea for the Christians

ight to us, and to whom a wanton look is adultery, the eyes being made for other purposes, and who are to be called to account for their very thoughts, how can any one doubt that such persons practise self-control? For our account lies not with human laws, which a bad man can evade (at the outset I proved to you, sovereign lords, that our doctrine is from the teaching of God), but we have a law which makes the measure of rectitude to consist in dealing with our neighbour as ourselves.[124]

Matt. 22:39 - NIV, NAB - in Clement of Alexandria Who is the Rich Man that Shall Be Saved?

The second in order, and not any less than this, He says, is, "Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself,"[38]

Matt. 22:39 - NIV, NAB - in Tertullian On the Apparel of Women Book II

Are we to paint ourselves out that our neighbours may perish? Where, then, is (the command), "Thou shall love thy neighbour as thyself? "[17]

"But if ye bite and find fault with one another, take heed that ye be not consumed one of another."[19]

And again, "A new commandment give I unto you, that ye love one another. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."[43]

Matt. 22:40 - NIV, NAB - in Cyprian Treatise IV On the Lord's Prayer

"On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets."[78]

Matt. 22:42 - NIV, NAB - in Archelaus Acts of the Disputation with the Heresiarch Manes

"Behold, Thy mother and Thy brethren stand without? "Yet, although that man was bold enough to address Him thus, no one can be mightier or greater than this same person Himself who shows us His mother or His brethren. Nay, He does not deign even to hear it said that He is David's son.[573]

Matt. 22:42 - NIV, NAB - in The Arabic Gospel of the Infancy of the Saviour

Wherefore then, said He, does he in the Spirit call him his lord, when he says, The Lord said to my lord, Sit at my right hand, that I may put thine enemies under thy footsteps?[22]

Matt. 22:43 - NIV, NAB - in Epistle of Barnabas

of David, fearing and understanding the error of the wicked, he saith, "The Lord said unto my Lord, Sit at My right hand, until I make Thine enemies Thy footstool."[183]
