About this title

Synopsis:

Book may have numerous typos, missing text, images, or index. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. 1885. Excerpt: ... have here the earliest Christian password or symbolum. Grace is the source, peace the consummation. The two together comprehend all the gifts of the Spirit. In the elprjvrj iraaiv, fax vobiscum, of the early Church, peace includes all. (Cf. Tert., c. Marc. v. 5; Chrys., Hom. 3 in Col.). As God, whom all acknowledge to be Lord, is here designated Father, so the man Christ Jesus is designated Lord (cf. note on viii. 6). Vv. 4-9.

V. 4. ev^apiarelv does not occur before Polybius. Its occurrence in a psephism in Dem., De Cor. p. 257, is one proof of spuriousness. The class. phrase is xapiv elSevai. fiov is omitted in it (first hand) and B. So Westc. and Hort. But A and the first corrector of N, who was nearly coeval with the scribe, insert it. So Lachm., Tisch., Treg. Cf. Phil. i. 3. Thus to appropriate God is characteristic of the highest spiritual lives. It is the other side of consecration to God. To Koivov lSioirotovfievoi is Chrysostom'...
