Vine's Expository Dictionary of NT Words - Write, Wrote, Written
A — 1: γράφω (Strong's #1125 — Verb — grapho — graf'-o ) is used (a) of "forming letters" on a surface or writing material, John 8:6 ; Galatians 6:11 , where the Apostle speaks of his having "written" with large letters in his own hand, which not improbably means that at this point he took the pen from his amanuensis and finished the Epistle himself; this is not negatived by the fact that the verb is in the aorist or past definite tense, lit., "I wrote," for in Greek idiom the writer of a letter put himself beside the reader and spoke of it as having been "written" in the past; in Eng. we should say "I am writing," taking our point of view from the time at which we are doing it; cp. Philemon 1:19 (this Ep. is undoubtedly a holograph), where again the equivalent English translation is in the present tense (see also Acts 15:23 ; Romans 15:15 ); possibly the Apostle, in Galatians, was referring to his having "written" the body of the Epistle but the former alternative seems the more likely; in 2 Thessalonians 3:17 he says that the closing salutation is written by his own hand and speaks of it as "the token in every Epistle" which some understand as a purpose for the future rather than a custom; see, however, 1 Corinthians 16:21 ; Colossians 4:18 . The absence of the token from the other Epistles of Paul can be explained differently, their authenticity not being dependent upon this; (b) "to commit to writing, to record," e.g., Luke 1:63 ; John 19:21,22 ; it is used of Scripture as a standing authority, "it is written," e.g., Mark 1:2 ; Romans 1:17 (cp. 2 Corinthians 4:13 ); (c) of "writing directions or giving information," e.g., Romans 10:5 , "(Moses) writeth," RV (AV, "describeth"); Romans 15:15 ; 2 Corinthians 7:12 ; (d) of "that which contained a record or message," e.g., Mark 10:4,5 ; John 19:19 ; 21:25 ; Acts 23:25 .
A — 2: ἐπιστέλλω (Strong's #1989 — Verb — epistello — ep-ee-stel'-lo ) denotes "to send a message by letter, to write word" (stello, "to send;" Eng., "epistle"), Acts 15:20 ; 21:25 (some mss. have apostello, "to send"); Hebrews 13:22 .
A — 3: προγράφω (Strong's #4270 — Verb — prographo — prog-raf'-o ) denotes "to write before," Romans 15:4 (in the best texts; some have grapho); Ephesians 3:3 . See SET (forth).
A — 4: ἐγγράφω (Strong's #1449 — Verb — engrapho — eng-graf'-o ) denotes "to write in," Luke 10:20 ; 2 Corinthians 3:2,3 .
A — 5: ἐπιγράφω (Strong's #1924 — Verb — epigrapho — ep-ee-graf'-o ) is rendered "to write over or upon" (epi) in Mark 15:26 ; figuratively, on the heart, Hebrews 8:10 ; 10:16 ; on the gates of the heavenly Jerusalem, Revelation 21:12 . See INSCRIPTION.
Notes: (1) For apographo, Hebrews 12:23 , AV, "written," see ENROLL. (2) In 2 Corinthians 3:7 "written" is a translation of en, "in," with the dative plural of gramma, a letter, lit., "in letters."
B — 1: γραπτός (Strong's #1123 — Adjective — graptos — grap-tos' ) from A, No. 1, "written," occurs in Romans 2:15 .

Some time during his three years in Ephesus, Paul Wrote the letter we know as First Corinthians (1 Corinthians 16:8-9; 1 Corinthians 16:19). This proved to be so, and Paul’s letter to the Ephesians, which he Wrote during his first imprisonment in Rome, deals with some of the wrong ideas that had become widespread in and around Ephesus (see EPHESIANS, LETTER TO THE).

Simplicius Wrote to Acacius that he ought not to have received Peter into communion without the concurrence of the apostolic see; that a man condemned by a common decree could not be freed from the ban except by a common council; and that he must first accept unreservedly the council of Chalcedon and the Tome of pope Leo

Luke Wrote for a person named Theophilus, with the purpose of giving Theophilus an account of Christianity from the birth of its founder to the arrival of its greatest apostle in Rome (Luke 1:1-4; Acts 1:1-2). Paul Wrote his earlier letters during the period covered by Acts, and the present-day reader will have a better understanding of those letters, and other letters of the New Testament, once he is familiar with Acts. Whether he was or not, there is no doubt that at the time Luke Wrote his Gospel and Acts (in the early AD 60s), the Roman government was paying increasing attention to Christianity

Mark, Gospel According to - 140 or earlier), as derived from ‘the Elder’ from whom he gleaned traditions:...
‘Mark, having become the interpreter of Peter, Wrote down accurately everything that he remembered, without, however recording in order what was either said or done by Christ [1]3 Irenæus above), Mark Wrote down what he said at the request of the hearers, Peter neither forbidding it nor urging it. By ecclesiastical writers Mark is connected almost uniformly with Peter, but (see above) there is a difference of tradition as to whether he Wrote before or after Peter’s death. ’ Internal evidence to a considerable extent confirms, however indirectly, the Patristic evidence (§ 1) that Mark Wrote down the preaching of Peter. , either in the form in which we have it, or at least in a form very closely resembling our present Gospel, was before the other Synoptists when they Wrote, ( a ) Scope . Mark, if he Wrote after the others, should have added a cock-crowing. only in unessential particulars, lay before the First and Third Evangelists when they Wrote. Clement of Alexandria states that he Wrote in Rome; Chrysostom (two centuries later) that he Wrote in Egypt. ) The reference to the shewbread ( Mark 2:26 , ‘it is not lawful’) suggests that the Temple still stood when Mark Wrote. For Papias by implication and Irenæus explicitly say that Mark Wrote after Peter’s death, while Clement of Alexandria and Origen say that he Wrote in Peter’s lifetime (see § 1). , we must either choose an early date for 1Peter , or else prefer the Alexandrian tradition that Mark Wrote in Peter’s lifetime [Dr
Mark, the Gospel According to - 39), states that Mark Wrote "not in order," i. he Wrote "some" leading facts, not a complete history. Mark's explanations of Jewish customs and names (Jordan is called a "river"; the Pharisees' fasting and customs, Mark 1:5; Mark 2:18; Mark 7:1-4; the Sadducees' tenets, Mark 12:18; the Passover described, Mark 14:1; Mark 14:12) which Jews would not need, and the absence of appeals by himself to Old Testament prophecy, also of the genealogy and of the term nomos , the Mosaic "law," show he Wrote for Gentiles not for Jews. " He abounds in Latinisms, agreeably to the theory that he Wrote for Romans, whose terms his and Peter's intimacy with them would dispose him to use: thus "centurion" for hekatontarchos elsewhere in New Testament, paidiothen = "a puero", kodrantes = "quadrans", denarion = "denarius", halas analon = "sal insulsum", "specoulator", "censos", "fragelloo" (flagello ), xestes (sextarius ), megistanes = "magnates", legeon = "legio". " But Mark's assuming his readers' acquaintance with Jewish localities is opposed to the opinion that he Wrote at Rome (after Peter's departure from or decease in that city) which John Presbyter and Irenaeus endorse. ...
All is clear, if Mark Wrote the Gospel in connection with the Roman Caesarea.

Gospel - Whether Mark Wrote with the gospel by Matthew before him, and Luke with Matthew and Mark both, or not, we know that they "spake as they were moved by the Holy Ghost," while recounting the works and sayings of Christ which they had seen or knew to be true, using no doubt the most authentic written and oral accounts of the same, current among the disciples.

Tichonius also Wrote a commentary on the Revelation which Gennadius tells us he interpreted entirely in a spiritual sense—that the human body is an abode of angels ("angelicam stationem corpus esse"); that the Millennium in a personal sense is doubtful that there is only one resurrection in which human bodies of every sort and age will rise and that of the two resurrections mentioned one is to be understood of the growth of grace in the soul of man and in the church
Foreknowledge - Jesus taught that God has complete knowledge of human beings (Matthew 10:29-31 ), and the author of Hebrews Wrote that “nothing in all creation is hidden from God's sight” (Hebrews 4:13 NIV). Thus Paul Wrote, “But now that you know God—or rather are known by God” (Galatians 4:9 NIV). ...
In Romans Paul Wrote that those whom God foreknows, He predestines to be conformed to the image of His Son; and those whom God predestines, He calls; and those whom He calls, He justifies; and those whom He justifies, He glorifies (Romans 8:29-30 )
Canon - Because Solomon was inspired to write some canonical books, it does not follow that what he Wrote on natural history was also inspired, any more than Solomon's private letters to his friends, if ever he Wrote any. Many true prophets are mentioned, who Wrote nothing that we know of; and several are mentioned, whose names are not even given. And if they Wrote letters on special occasions, to the churches planted by them; yet these were not designed for the perpetual instruction of the universal church. For, since much that the Apostles preached by inspiration is undoubtedly lost, so there is no reason why every word which they Wrote must necessarily be preserved, and form a part of the canonical volume. Paul said, "I Wrote to you in an epistle not to company with fornicators," 1 Corinthians 5:9 , he referred to an epistle which he had written to the Corinthians, before the one now called the First; it might never have been intended that this letter should form a constituent part of the canon; for although it treated of subjects connected with Christian faith or practice, yet, an occasion having arisen, in a short time, of treating these subjects more at large, every thing in that epistle (supposing it ever to have been written) may have been included in the two Epistles to the Corinthians which are now in the canon. Paul Wrote no more than fourteen epistles, all of which we now have. Paul's own declaration stands in the way of our opinion "I Wrote to you in an epistle," 1 Corinthians 5:9 ; 1 Corinthians 5:11 . The whole may be thus paraphrased: "I Wrote to you above in my letter, that you should separate from those who were fornicators, and that you should purge them out as did leaven; but, fearing lest you should misapprehend my meaning, by inferring that I have directed you to avoid all intercourse with the Heathen around you, who are addicted to these shameful vices, which would make it necessary that you should go out of the world, I now inform you that my meaning is, that you do not associate familiarly with any who make a profession of Christianity, and yet continue in these evil practices. Paul ever Wrote an epistle to the Laodiceans? The text on which this opinion has been founded, in ancient and modern times, correctly interpreted, has no such import
Alexander, of Alexandria - Some Wrote in his favour to Alexander, who, on his part, was most indefatigable in writing to various bishops in order to prevent them from being deceived by Arius; Epiphanius tells us that seventy such letters were preserved in his time ( Haer. 17); and he now Wrote (Athan. A Cilician bishop, Athanasius of Anazarbus, Wrote to Alexander, openly declaring that Christ was "one of the hundred sheep"; George, an Alexandrian presbyter, then staying at Antioch, had the boldness to write to his bishop to the effect that the Son once "was not," just as Isaiah "was not," before he was born to Amoz (Athan. This letter, which he caused his clergy to sign, probably preceded the "Tome" or confession of faith which he referred to as having been signed by some bishops, when he Wrote to Alexander, bp
Vigilantius - The clergy who were fostering the practices impugned by him found their people imbibing his opinions, and two of them, Desiderius and Riparius, Wrote to Jerome, representing the opinions of Vigilantius and asking for his advice. Jerome gave little attention to it at first, but finding Sisinnius obliged to leave Bethlehem in haste, sat down, and in one night Wrote his treatise contra Vigilantium . This treatise has less of reason and more of mere abuse than any which he Wrote. He Wrote with a certain zeal for religion; but was led astray by the praise of men, and presumed beyond his strength; and being a man of elegant speech but not trained in discerning the sense of the Scriptures, interpreted in a perverse manner the second vision of Daniel, and put forth other works of no value, which must be placed in the catalogue of heretical writings
Gelasius (1) i, Bishop of Rome - On his accession Gelasius Wrote a respectful letter to the emperor, who did not reply. Euphemius, however, Wrote twice to Gelasius, expressing a strong desire for reconciliation between the churches, and a hope that Gelasius would, through condescension and a spirit of charity, be able to restore concord. "...
In 493 Gelasius Wrote a long letter to the Eastern bishops.

Gelasius also Wrote on the same subjects to the bishops of various provinces, including those of East Illyricum and Dardania

He Wrote 1 Corinthians before leaving Ephesus; 2 Corinthians on his way to Corinth; and Galatians at Corinth, where also he Wrote Romans.

Ignatius, Bishop of Antioch - Peregrinus Wrote letters to all the more important cities, forwarding these by messengers whom he appointed ( ἐχειροτόνησε ) and entitled νεκραγγέλους and νερτεροδρόμους . 3, 4), bears witness that Polycarp Wrote to the Philippians, and (v. Thus in Smyrna, the city of Polycarp, he Wrote to Ephesus, Magnesia, and Tralles. He Wrote to the Romans, begging them not to impede his martyrdom. Then he tells how Ignatius, having left Smyrna and come to Troas, Wrote thence to the Philadelphians and Smyrnaeans and to Polycarp. ...
Eusebius clearly Wrote with the collection of letters before him, and knew of no other collection besides the 7 he mentions. Ussher first restored the genuine text by means of a Latin translation which he discovered, and his arguments (except as to his doubt whether Ignatius Wrote separately to Polycarp) were confirmed by Vossius's publication of the Medicean MS. Many scholars at the time accepted the Curetonian theory, and Bunsen Wrote a voluminous work in its defence. Pseudo-Ignatius interests himself against the Quartodecimans; proving that they must have been still strong when he Wrote, which was not the case at the conclusion of the 4th cent. Perpetua and Saturus Wrote in prison narratives as long as the epistles of Ignatius (Acta SS. The Philippians immediately after Wrote to Polycarp, and forwarded a message to the Antiochenes, expecting to be in time to catch the messenger for Antioch before his departure. Polycarp Wrote immediately after receiving the epistle of the Philippians. The standpoint of the epistles is perfectly consistent with the supposition that episcopacy existing from the times of the apostles in Asia Minor and Syria and believed by the Christians there to be a divinely ordained institution, made its way gradually into other parts of the church, and that those who most valued it might yet know that it did not exist in churches to which they Wrote, or not be assured that it did, and might feel it no part of their duty to enter upon a controversy concerning it
Inspiration of Scripture - Likewise, Jeremiah Wrote, “And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth” (Jeremiah 1:9 ). Matthew Wrote, “He had resolved on this, when an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, and said, “Joseph, son of David, do not be afraid to take Mary home with you to be your wife'“ ( Matthew 1:20 REB). Paul's letter to the Corinthians is an example of this: “Now for the matters you Wrote about” (1 Corinthians 7:1 NIV). They Wrote the Word of God

Matthew, Gospel According to - The ‘Lord’s logia’ which Papias expounded would be the story of our Lord’s life and teaching, and Papias would mean that Matthew Wrote his Gospel in Hebrew (cf. Many understand Papias to mean that Matthew Wrote our Lord’s sayings only ; but this does not appear from his words. Papias would then mean that Matthew Wrote down the Gospel story in Hebrew. One interpretation is that Matthew Wrote down Jesus’ sayings in Aramaic, but did not expound them, and that Papias’ own book had this object. 1) explicitly states that Matthew Wrote first, ‘while Peter and Paul were preaching the gospel in Rome,’ but that Mark Wrote ‘after their departure.

Hebrews - Paul dictated the epistle in Hebrew, and another, who was a great master of the Greek language, immediately Wrote down the Apostle's sentiments in his own elegant Greek; but who this assistant of the Apostle was, is altogether unknown. Paul, when he Wrote this epistle, was at a place where some Italian converts were. Paul Wrote the Epistle to the Hebrews; but no considerable person or party is definitely known to us, who entertained these doubts; and it is manifest, from Origen and Eusebius, that there was not, in that quarter, any important opposition to the general and constant tradition of the church, that Paul did write it. In early times, we have seen that the case was different, when Clement of Rome Wrote his epistle, and when the old Latin version was brought into circulation. Paul Wrote to the Hebrews in the Hebrew language, and that St. Eusebius in the same manner says, that Paul Wrote to the Hebrews in his vernacular language, and that, according to report, either Luke or Clement translated it. Paul's, while the diction or costume of it must be attributed to the person who Wrote down the sentiments of the Apostle. Paul did address it to the church at Caesarea, it is altogether probable that he Wrote in Greek, as Greek was the principal language of that city. Paul Wrote to the Romans, he did not write in Latin; yet there was no difficulty in making his epistle understood, for the knowledge of Greek was very common in Rome. Paul understood the Latin language, which is no where affirmed, and he had not resided, when he Wrote this epistle, in any of the countries where it was commonly used, still he understood Greek so much better that he would of course prefer writing in it
Timothy, Epistles to - Paul, having to go into Macedonia, left Timothy in charge of the Church at Ephesus ( 1 Timothy 1:3 ); and, fearing he might be detained longer than he anticipated, he Wrote telling him how to act during his absence ( 1 Timothy 3:14-15 ). Indeed, even if we had not the distinct statements of the Pastorals, we should consider it extremely likely that he was thus released; for it is clear that he anticipated being set at liberty when, from his imprisonment, he Wrote to the Philippians that he hoped shortly to come to them (Philippians 2:24 ), and when he bid Onesimus prepare him a lodging at Colossæ ( Philippians 1:22 ). 64?), that between these dates he visited Spain in the West, and various Churches in the Eastern Mediterranean, and that during this period he Wrote the Pastoral Epistles. These ascetic doctrines may have been founded on the un -Jewish belief of the essential evil of matter an error which the Apostle probably aimed at when he Wrote that God gave all things richly to be enjoyed ( 1 Timothy 6:17 ). Paul Wrote the Epistles shortly before his death in a
Gregorius (51) i, (the Great), Bishop of Rome - Gregory was at once unanimously chosen by senate, clergy, and people to succeed Pelagius; but to him his election was distressing, and he Wrote to the emperor Mauricius imploring him not to confirm it. Gregory Wrote to the Catholic bishops of Numidia, and to Gennadius, exarch of Africa, urging them to resist such a claim (Ep. Maximus having been elected in opposition to Honoratus, whom Gregory had recommended, the latter disallowed the election, and Wrote to the clergy of Salona forbidding them to choose a bishop without the consent of the apostolic see. He Wrote to Reccared in warm congratulation, exhorting him to humility, chastity, and mercy; thanking him for presents received, and sending in return a key from the body of St. Having heard of two presbyters, John of Chalcedon and Anastasius of Isauria, being beaten with cudgels, after conviction on a charge of heresy, under John the Faster, then patriarch of Constantinople, Gregory Wrote twice to the patriarch, remonstrating with him for introducing a new and uncanonical punishment, exhorting him to restore the two presbyters or to judge them canonically, and expressing his own readiness to receive them at Rome. Gregory now Wrote to Sabinianus, his apocrisiarius at Constantinople, desiring him to use his utmost endeavours with the patriarch, the emperor, and the empress, to procure the renunciation of the title; and when this failed, he himself Wrote to all these in peculiarly strong language. He Wrote to Eulogius of Alexandria and Anastasius of Antioch, representing the purpose of their brother of Constantinople as being that of degrading them, and usurping to himself all ecclesiastical power. They, however, were not thus moved to action; they seem to have regarded the title as one of honour only, suitable to the patriarch of the imperial city; and one of them, Anastasius, Wrote in reply that the matter seemed to him of little moment. In vain did Cyriacus send a nuncio to Rome in the hope of arranging matters: Gregory was resolute, and Wrote, "I confidently say that whosoever calls himself universal priest, or desires to be so called in his elation, is the forerunner of Antichrist. The emperor believed his exarch, and Wrote to Gregory in condemnation of his conduct. To Phocas and his consort Leontia, who is spoken of as little better than her husband, Gregory Wrote congratulatory letters in a style of flattery beyond even what was usual with him in addressing great potentates (Ep
Hormisdas, Bishop of Rome - In 515 the emperor Wrote to Hormisdas, desiring his concurrence in restoring unity to the church by means of such a council; and Hormisdas, after a guarded reply, sent legates to Constantinople with letters to the emperor and Vitalian, and a statement of the necessary conditions for union. This was done, the names of Acacius and his successors in the see, Fravitas, Euphemius, Macedonius, and Timotheus, and of the emperors Zeno and Anastasius, were erased from the diptychs; the bishops of other cities, and the archimandrites who had been previously reluctant, now came to terms; and the legates Wrote to the pope expressing thankfulness that so complete a triumph had been won without sedition, tumult, or shedding of blood. Hormisdas, on hearing of this, Wrote to the emperor, requiring that Dorotheus should be deposed. He and his church were now restored to Catholic communion, and he Wrote a respectful letter to the pope (a.

The churches of Galatia, to whom Paul Wrote, were churches he himself founded (Galatians 1:8-9 ; Galatians 4:19 ).

The Syriac version of the second century is demonstrably made, not from its kindred tongue the Hebrew, but from the Greek Matthew; this to too in the country next Judea where Matthew Wrote, and with which there was the freest communication. All is clear if we suppose that, after inaccurate translations of his Hebrew by others such as Papias (above) notices, Matthew himself at a later date Wrote, or dictated, in Greek for Greek speaking Jews the Gospel in fuller form than the Hebrew. His omission of the ascension (as included in the resurrection of which it is the complement) was just what we should expect if he Wrote while the event was fresh in men's memory and the witnesses still at Jerusalem. Jerusalem is "the holy city" (Matthew 4:5; Matthew 27:53), which it ceased to be regarded as by the time that subsequent New Testament writers Wrote, when the Jews had continued to harden themselves against the truth

Paul Wrote it originally in Hebrew, suppressing his name from motives of expediency, and that St. The authenticity and inspiration of a book are not dependent upon our knowing who Wrote it. Besides, if he Wrote from Rome we have a natural explanation, amounting to a vera causa , of the fact that our Epistle was known there from the very first; for it must not be supposed that a writing like this was allowed to go forth without copies having been made beforehand (for a supposed instance of this kind in the case of St
Heracleon, a Gnostic - There is reason to think that he Wrote commentaries on St. John's Gospel, which clearly had attained high authority when he Wrote. This would not be inconsistent with his having been personally instructed by Valentinus, who continued to teach as late as 160, and would allow time for Heracleon to have gained celebrity before Clement Wrote, one of whose references to Heracleon is in what was probably one of his earliest works. He had evidently long passed from the scene when Origen Wrote
Peter - Peter Wrote his First Letter to prepare Christians for what lay ahead. He Wrote his Second Letter to give various reminders and warn against false teaching. ) By the time he Wrote his Second Letter he was in prison, awaiting the execution that Jesus had spoken of about thirty years earlier (2 Peter 1:13-15; cf
Philippians - ...
In spite of the negative circumstances from which Paul Wrote, Philippians is a warm, personal, positive letter (except for Acts 3:1 ). Paul Wrote to thank the church for a gift it had recently sent to Paul in prison and to inform them of his circumstances and of Timothy's and Epaphroditus' travel plans. ...
Origin of Philippians Where was Paul when he Wrote Philippians? The letter itself reveals only that he was in prison
Macedonia - , the First Letter to the Thessalonians which Paul Wrote from Corinth after he had preached in Beroea and in Athens (Acts 17:13-15 ). 100, bishop Polycarp of Smyrna Wrote to the Philippians who had asked him to forward copies of the letters of the famous martyr Ignatius of Antioch. Polycarp also Wrote to advise the Philippians with respect to the case of a presbyter who had embezzled funds

During the above period Paul Wrote the two epistles to the Thessalonians, the two to the Corinthians, to the Galatians, Romans, Colossians, Philemon, Ephesians, and Philippians
Ephesus - While the Apostle abode in Ephesus and its neighbourhood, he gathered a numerous Christian church, to which, at a subsequent period, he Wrote that epistle, which forms so important a part of the Apostolic writings. He was then a prisoner at Rome, and the year in which he Wrote it must have been 60 or 61 of the Christian aera
Pilate - And Pilate, in compliance with the custom, having sent word to Tiberius of what had passed relating to Jesus Christ, the emperor Wrote an account of it to the senate, in a manner that gave reason to judge that he thought favourably of the religion of Jesus Christ, and showed that he should be willing for them to confer divine honours upon him; but the senate was not of the same opinion, and so the matter dropped. However, neither Eusebius nor Jerom, who were both inquisitive and understanding persons, nor any other author who Wrote afterward, seems to have seen them, at least not the true and original acts
Mark - Mark Wrote a short Gospel from what he had heard from St. Mark Wrote with St

Arnobius, Junior - The circumstance of Arnobius being the chief speaker does not of course prove that the authorship is his, any more than the position of Socrates in certain of the Platonic dialogues would prove that Socrates Wrote them

The doctrine of Agricola was in itself obscure, and is thought to have been represented worse than it really was by Luther, who Wrote against him with acrimony, and first styled him and his followers Antinomians
Phylacteries - However, the Jews understanding the precept literally, Wrote out the several passages wherever it occurs, and to which it seems to refer, and bound them upon their foreheads and upon their arms
Liturgy - We have many things out of the Greek liturgies of Basil and Chrysostom; more out of the litanies of Ambrose and Gregory; very much out of the ancient forms of the church dispersed in the works of the fathers, who Wrote long before the Roman Breviary, and Canon of the Mass

Philippus, the Arabian - We are also told that Origen Wrote to Philip and the empress (Eus
Bible, Hermeneutics - 3) The primary aim of the interpreter is to discover the original meaning of the author who Wrote the passage under consideration. If we know nothing concerning who Wrote a passage, when it was written, or under what conditions it was written, we are almost left to guess what its meaning might be. The interpreter also needs to know what occasioned the writing, or why the writer Wrote his message and what his purpose was

Romans, Book of - ...
Where was Paul when he Wrote Romans? Paul discussed his situation at the time he Wrote Romans in the book itself (Romans 15:25-29 ), indicating that he was about to leave for Jerusalem. ...
That Paul Wrote Romans while in Greece and before leaving for Jerusalem establishes the limits for the dating of the letter. Paul thus Wrote the Romans to announce his impending visit. Taking these facts seriously, scholars now feel that Paul knew much more about the Roman Christians than earlier scholars realized and Wrote to the church with several purposes in mind: (1) to request their prayers as he faced the threatening situation in Jerusalem, (2) to alert them to his intended visit, (3) to acquaint them with some of his understanding of what God had done in Christ, (4) to instruct them in areas where the church faced specific problems, and (5) to enlist their support in his planned missionary venture to Spain
Pentateuch - Sampey Wrote,...
Possibly the higher criticism of the Pentateuch is the most important critical problem confronting students of the Old Testament. ...
We do not know who Wrote the completed Pentateuch. The Pentateuch makes no claim that Moses Wrote all of it. However some things are clear: (1) We should avoid the two extreme views that Moses Wrote all the Pentateuch or that he Wrote none of it
Sidonius Apollinaris, Saint - Perpetuus he Wrote an elegiac inscription for the church of St. of Troyes, who Wrote to congratulate him on his appointment, to pray for him ( Epp. But at his friends' requests he criticized compositions and Wrote hymns in honour of martyrs. He also Wrote to his friend Aper, entreating him as a citizen of Clermont to leave his warm baths at Aquae Calidae and come to Clermont to take part in the solemn service ( Epp. ...
The surrender of Auvergne, marking as it did the utter prostration of Roman influence, was a heavy blow to Sidonius, and he Wrote to Graecus, bp
Athanasius, Archbishop of Alexandria - But Eusebius had recourse to Constantine, who thereupon Wrote, commanding Athanasius to admit into the church "all who desired it," on pain of being removed from his see by sheer State power. "There could be no fellowship," he Wrote, "between the Catholic church of Christ and the heresy that was fighting against Him. But two of Athanasius's priests, happening to be at court, at once refuted this calumny; and Constantine Wrote to Athanasius, condemning his accusers, and summoning him to Nicomedia. , who in the partition of the empire had a certain precedency over his brothers Constantius and Constans, the sovereigns of the East and of Italy, Wrote from Trèves to the Catholics of Alexandria, announcing that he had resolved, in fulfilment of an intention of his father, to send back Athanasius, of whose character he expressed high admiration (Apol. Constantius Wrote to him in anger, assuming the truth of the former charge; but Athanasius was successful in disproving both. The letters of Alexandrians to Athanasius, consolatory as proofs of their affection, gave mournful accounts of torture and robbery, of hatred towards himself shewn in persecution of his aunt, of countenance shewn to Gregory by the "duke" Balacius; and some of these troubles were in his mind when, early in 341, he Wrote "from Rome" his Festal Letter for the year. They Wrote letters of sympathy to the suffragans of Athanasius and the churchmen of Alexandria, urging the faithful "to contend earnestly for the sound faith and the innocence of Athanasius. He therefore Wrote to Athanasius, affecting to be solicitous of the Western emperor's assent to an act of his own free clemency. He Wrote two other letters ( Apol
Rome And the Roman Empire - Paul undoubtedly referred to this in Galatians 4:4 when he Wrote: “In the fullness of time God sent forth his Son” (author's italics). The Roman historian Tacitus Wrote that when the fire subsided, only four of Rome's fourteen districts remained intact. Yet Paul Wrote, “All the saints greet you, especially those of the emperor's household,” (Philippians 4:22 NRSV). Irenaeus Wrote in the second century that John died in Ephesus in the reign of Trajan
John, the Gospel According to - His not feeling it necessary to explain Jesus' prophecy that John should tarry until He came (John 21) shows that he Wrote soon after the destruction of Jerusalem (A. 2) first expressly attributes it to John; he Wrote a commentary on the four and a harmony (Jerome Alg. 3, confirms the statement) that John Wrote at his friends' request to give Christ's "spiritual" aspect, the former Gospels already having given His "bodily" aspect. Authorized Gospel terms were most needed in the matured age of the church when John Wrote, and were adopted by John from Jesus Himself
Book - The ancients likewise Wrote upon linen. Pliny says, the Parthians, even in his time, Wrote upon their clothes; and Livy speaks of certain books made of linen, lintei libri, upon which the names of magistrates, and the history of the Roman commonwealth, were written, and preserved in the temple of the goddess Moneta. So Pliny, "At first men Wrote on the leaves of palm, and the bark of certain trees, but afterward public documents were preserved on leaden plates, and those of a private nature on wax, or linen. Whilst the Egyptian papyrus was in common use, its brittle nature made it proper to roll up what they Wrote; and as this had been a customary practice, many continued it when they used other materials, which might very safely have been treated in a different manner. The Romans Wrote their books either on parchment, or on paper made of the Egyptian papyrus. The ancients seldom Wrote their treatises with their own hand, but dictated them to their freedmen and slaves. The amanuensis who Wrote the Epistle to the Romans, has mentioned himself near the conclusion, Romans 16:22
Apollonius of Tyana - Naturally, none of these writers held that Philostratus Wrote in direct imitation of the Gospels, as it would have marred their point to do so. According to this view Philostratus Wrote with no strictly polemical reference to Christianity, but, in the eclectic spirit of his time, strove to accommodate Christianity to the heathen religion
Galatians, the Epistle to the - Galatians 4:13, "ye know how I preached at the first" (Greek at rite former time), implies that Paul at the time of writing had been twice in Galatia; and Galatians 1:6, "I marvel that ye are so soon removed," implies that he Wrote not long after having left Galatia the second time, possibly (Alford) soon after he began his residence at Ephesus (Acts 18:23; Acts 19:1), which lasted from autumn A. 57-58), from whence he Wrote the epistle to the Romans
Encratites - 21) mentions that another writer of the same date Apollinaris Wrote against the Severian Encratites. He Wrote c
Samaritans - Joseph Scaliger, being curious to know their usages, Wrote to the Samaritans of Egypt, and to the high priest of the whole sect, who resided at Neapolis. At the time when they Wrote to Scaliger, they reckoned one hundred and twenty-two high priests; affirmed that the Jews had no high priests of the race of Phinehas; and that the Jews belied them in calling them Cutheans; for that they are descended from the tribe of Joseph by Ephraim
Cerinthians - I cannot find any older authority for these statements than that of Epiphanius, who Wrote late in the fourth century, and is by no means worthy of implicit credit. John Wrote his Gospel expressly to confute this heresy, we can hardly come to any other conclusion, than that it was late in the first century when Cerinthus rose into notice
Chronicles, Books of - The Chronicler Wrote for a particular group of people and with a particular purpose in mind. These were the people for whom the Chronicler Wrote
Muratorian Fragment - 196; and Bunsen's conjecture that Hegesippus Wrote it has nothing to recommend it. If we regard it as written in the episcopate of Zephyrinus, Muratori's conjecture that Caius Wrote it becomes possible; and we know from Eusebius that the disputation of Caius with Proclus, written at that period, contained, in opposition to Montanist revelations, a list of the books reverenced by the Catholic church
Luke, Gospel of - He Wrote with a distinctly Christian purpose. Among the disadvantaged people that Luke Wrote about as being blessed by God were slaves (Luke 7:2-7; Luke 12:37), aliens (Luke 10:30-37; Luke 17:16), lepers (Luke 4:27; Luke 17:11-18), the poor (Luke 1:53; Luke 2:7; Luke 6:20; Luke 7:22) and women (Luke 2:36-38; Luke 7:37-48; Luke 8:2; Luke 13:11-13), in particular, widows (Luke 4:25; Luke 7:12-15; Luke 18:1-7; Luke 21:1-4)

Sedulius, 5th-Cent. Poet - He yearned to tell the heathen of the wonders of the Gospel, and Wrote the Carmen Paschale to invite then to share the Gospel feast. probably a presbyter) and Wrote his book in Achaia
Gospels - Our Saviour Wrote nothing Himself, the alleged letter to Abgarus, king of Edessa, being probably spurious. That Luke Wrote chronologically in his general facts is probable from his phrase "in order" (Luke 1:1; unique to him, expressing succession Luke 8:1, "afterward," Greek "in order," Acts 18:23). )...
Mark Wrote before Luke, for except 24 verses all his Gospel is in one of the two other Synoptists; he never, if he was after Luke, would for the sake of 24 verses of original matter have published a distinct Gospel. " Mark probably Wrote while having the opportunity of Peter's guidance in Palestine, between his return from Perga and his second journey with Barnabas in or for Caesarea, the second center of gospel preaching as Jerusalem was the first and Antioch the third, the scene of Cornelius' conversion by Peter, Mark's father in the faith, the head quarters of the Roman forces in Palestine, where Philip the evangelist resided. ) say, "Peter narrated, Mark Wrote. ...
Mark's Gospel, brief, vivid, and abounding in acts rather than discourses, was best suited to the Roman character, with fewer Old Testament quotations than Matthew who Wrote for the Jews
Creation - ...
The author of Hebrews Wrote of God's revelation through prophets of old, but “in these last days” God spoke through a Son (Hebrews 1:1-2 ). Paul Wrote to the Corinthians about being “in Christ” and thereby being “a new creation” (2 Corinthians 5:17 ). He also Wrote of a time when “the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God” (Romans 8:21 NAS)
Language of Christ - Matthew Wrote in Hebrew; but the Greek St. Josephus, who Wrote in Greek, prepared a Semitic edition of his Wars for the benefit of those who understood only their vernacular. We have already referred to the tradition that Matthew, who Wrote for the benefit of his countrymen, composed a Gospel in Hebrew
Julianus Eclanensis, Bishop of Eclana - Augustine of Hippo was intimate with the family, and Wrote of them in terms of great affection and respect, c. § 2) and who Wrote against Augustine (Phot. The patriarch Wrote to Celestine more than once in his behoof and that of his friends (Nestor
Theophilus, Bishop of Alexandria - At last he Wrote, coldly exhorting Jerome to respect the authority of the bp. He then Wrote to Anastasius of Rome and Jerome, informing them of this. He Wrote to Theophilus, "oblige me as your son and brother" (alluding to his own consecration by Theophilus), by being reconciled to these men. He Wrote to Epiphanius, urging him to get Origenism condemned by a synod of his suffragans in Cyprus. 9) Wrote, "Brother Theophilus, we are in communion with you and with our brother John
Titus - Paul as one of his missionary companions and assistants, but we have no distinct reference to him until some 10 years after the Council at Jerusalem, namely, when the Apostle Wrote 2 Corinthians
Synzygus - ’ If the name is not a proper name, the person addressed was one present with the Apostle when he Wrote to Philippi-either Epaphroditus or some other

This is confirmed by Ptolemy, who Wrote about the middle of the 2nd cent
Caius, Ecclesiastical Writer - Theodoret says that he Wrote against Cerinthus, but is probably referring to a part of the dialogue in question
Evagrius of Antioch - On his return to Antioch, Evagrius Wrote in harsh terms to Basil, accusing him of a love of controversy and of being unduly swayed by personal partialities
Christ - The evangelists Wrote some years after the period above mentioned; and therefore they adopted the practice common among Christians at that time, which was to employ the word as a surname for the sake of distinction
Alexandrian Library - He accordingly Wrote to Omar, whose well known answer was dictated by the ignorance of a fanatic: "If these writings of the Greeks agree with the Koran, or book of God, they are useless, and need not be preserved; if they disagree, they are pernicious, and ought to be destroyed
Pipe Flute - , Wrote:...
‘Temporibus veterum tibicinis usus avorum...

Leontius, Bishop of Antioch - He Wrote his Apologia de Fuga in reply to it, and always speaks bitterly of Leontius, seldom omitting the opprobrious epithet ὁ ἀπόκυπος
Maximus, an Ecclesiastical Writer - Jerome says in his Catalogue, that Methodius Wrote on free will, while Photius has preserved large extracts from what he knew as the work of Methodius on free will, which clearly prove that it incorporated much of Maximus
Miltiades, 2nd Cent. Christian Writer - It is a natural inference from the plural "rulers" that there were, when Miltiades Wrote, two emperors, probably Aurelius and Verus
Paulus i, Bishop of Constantinople - Julius, who examined their cases severally, found them all staunch to the creed of Nicaea, admitted them to communion, espoused their cause, and Wrote strongly to the bishops of the East
Petrus, Bishop of Sebaste - But Peter Wrote a letter to him, his only extant literary production ( ib
John the Apostle - From there he Wrote his Gospel and the three letters that bear his name
Mark, Gospel According to - The present writer thinks it most probable that the Second Gospel as we have it, or at any rate with the very slightest differences, was in the hands of all the other Evangelists when they Wrote; and that the latter freely used the material before them, altering it, or adding to it, or omitting parts of it, as they thought right when following other guides. ‘Gospels’) differs from him are noted: ‘For our present purpose we will merely add to his [3] words which have been quoted above, a tradition which has been set forth through these sources concerning Mark who Wrote the Gospel: “And the Elder said this also: Mark, having become the interpreter of Peter, Wrote down accurately everything that he remembered [4], without, however, recording in order what was either said or done by Christ. 8, 163]'>[6], while he thus Wrote down some things as he remembered them Novatianus And Novatianism - In this character the see being vacant he Wrote Ep. Dionysius Wrote exhorting him to retire from his schismatical position (Eus. Fabius however so inclined to his side that Dionysius addressed him a letter on the subject; and two bishops Firmilianus of Cappadocia and Theoctistus of Palestine Wrote to Dionysius requesting his presence at the council of Antioch to restrain tendencies in that direction (ib. The Jewish controversy seems to have been then very hot at Rome and Novatian Wrote to refute their contention about distinction of meats. , when Eulogius, Catholic patriarch of Alexandria, Wrote a treatise against them (Phot. Ambrose evidently Wrote in answer to some work lately produced by them ( de Poenit
Rufinus of Aquileia - There, about 30 years before he Wrote his Apology against the attacks of his former friend, Rufinus was baptized ( ib. In Egypt he saw and heard Didymus, who Wrote for him a book on the questions suggested by the death of infants (Hieron. It is, however, more probable that Palladius, who did not leave the solitary life in, Egypt till 400, and Wrote his History for Lausus at Constantinople apparently some time afterwards (he lived till 431), was indebted to Rufinus rather than the contrary. He enjoyed the friendship of the bishops near him, Petronius of Bologna, Gaudentius of Brixia, Laurentius, perhaps of Concordia, for whom he Wrote his work upon the Creed. Rufinus records that he was in the "coetus religiosus" of Pinianus on the Sicilian coast, witnessing the burning of Rhegium across the straits by the bands of Alaric, when he Wrote the preface to the translation of Origen's Commentary on Numbers. 175), we read: "Rufinus, a religious man, Wrote many books of use to the church, and many commentaries on the Scripture; but, since the most blessed Jerome infamed him in certain points, we take part with him (Jerome) in this and in all cases in which he has pronounced a condemnation
Ezra, the Book of - An undesigned coincidence, and therefore mark of genuineness, is that when Ezra Wrote, a century later than Cyrus, the Persian kings usually lived at Susa or Babylon, where the archives were kept, and there Ezra would naturally have placed Cyrus' roll had he been forging. Their enemies, hoping Smerdis had destroyed Cyrus' edict, Wrote to king Darius (Ezra 5:6) that they were building again on the plea of Cyrus' edict, and that search should be made at Babylon whether there were any such edict of Cyrus. The narrator (Ezra 1) evidently Wrote in Babylon not in Jerusalem; and Ezra might think the portion at the close of 2 Chronicles and beginning of Ezra more suitably placed there than in Daniel. A close connection of Ezra with Daniel is probable, and that Ezra Wrote or compiled the former part of his book in Babylon
Acts - How can we tell the person who Wrote these books was named Luke?...
The first piece of evidence comes in Luke 1:2 . Scholars have determined Paul Wrote Philemon, Colossians, and the Pastoral Epistles during his house arrest in that city. Knowing Luke Wrote Acts is crucial for understanding this book. This solution misses one important verse, Acts 1:1 , where Luke says to Theophilus: “In my former book I Wrote about all Jesus began to do and teach” Luke implied that Jesus continued to do and teach more, and that His story was incomplete where the Gospel ended
Pentateuch - Also Exodus 24:4, "Moses Wrote all the words of Jehovah"; (Exodus 34:27) "Jehovah said unto Moses, Write thou these words" distinguished from Exodus 34:28, "He (Jehovah) Wrote upon the tables the words of the covenant, the ten commandments" (Exodus 34:1). Numbers 33:2 "Moses Wrote their goings out according to their journeys by the commandment of Jehovah. " In Deuteronomy 17:18-19, the king is required to "write him a copy of this law in a book out of that which is before the priests, the Levites"; and Deuteronomy 31:9-11, "Moses Wrote this law and delivered it unto the priests, the son of Levi," who should "at the end of every seven years read this law before all Israel in their hearing"; and Deuteronomy 31:24," Moses made an end of writing the words of this law in a book," namely, the whole Pentateuch ("the law," Matthew 22:40; Galatians 4:21), "and commanded the Levites
Joab - 'And it came to pass in the morning that David Wrote a letter to Joab, and sent it by the hand of Uriah. And he Wrote in the letter saying: Thou shalt set Uriah in the forefront of the hottest battle, and retire from him, that he may be smitten and die. 'Destroy this letter as soon as you have read it,' David Wrote at the top of it. 'Read and burn instantly,' Wrote David in state cipher
Esther - " "Esther the queen Wrote with all authority to confirm this second letter of Purim" (Esther 8:7-14; Esther 9:20; Esther 9:29-32); "her decree confirmed these matters of Purlin.

The scribes Wrote the names of Haman's ten sons in three perpendicular columns of three, three, four, hanging upon three parallel cords, three upon each, one above another, representing the hanging of Haman's sons
Montanus - ...
Were the Gallic churches consulted by the orthodox, by the Montanists, or by both? and what answer did the Gallic Christians give? Eusebius only tells us that their judgment was pious and most orthodox, and that they subjoined letters which those who afterwards suffered martyrdom Wrote while yet in prison to the brethren in Asia and Phrygia and also to Eleutherus, bp. ...
We think that the Montanists had appealed to Rome ; that the church party solicited the good offices of their countrymen settled in Gaul, who Wrote to Eleutherus representing the disturbance to the peace of the churches (a phrase probably preserved by Eusebius from the letter itself) which would ensue if the Roman church approved what the church on the spot condemned. To avert, then, the possible calamity of a breach between the Eastern and Western churches, the Gallic churches, it would appear, not only Wrote, but sent Irenaeus to Rome at the end of 177 or the beginning of 178. the Black Sea, was dead when Apolinarius Wrote; but Aelius Publius Julius, bp. The Anonymous states that at the time he Wrote 13 full years had elapsed and a 14th had begun since the death of Maximilla. ...
Taking the Eusebian date, 172, for the rise of Montanism, Apollonius, who Wrote 40 years later, must have written c. Montanist teachers had made their way as far as Antioch; for Serapion, the bishop there, Wrote against them, copying the letter of Apolinarius
Revelation, Book of - The traditional view is that the person named John who Wrote the book was the apostle John, though no statement in the book makes this identification certain. Upon receiving the revelation, John Wrote it in a book, then sent it with a messenger to the mainland to deliver to a group of seven churches in Asia Minor
Prophet, Christ as - This identification is also in accord with what Jesus told the Pharisees in John 5:46-47 : "If you believed Moses, you would believe me, for he Wrote about me. But since you do not believe what he Wrote, how are you going to believe what I say?" Of all the places that Jesus could have been referring to in Moses' writings, none would be a more obvious candidate for a messianic reference than Deuteronomy 18:15-19 , where the Messiah would function as the prophetic teacher
Caesar - Luke Wrote (Luke 3:1): ‘Pontius Pilate being governor of Judaea,’ with the tetrarchs for Galilee, Ituraea, and Abilene, desiring to mark the period in the reign of Tiberius Caesar when ‘the word of God came to John in the wilderness. The title on the cross, ‘Jesus of Nazareth, the king of the Jews’ (John 19:19), as Pilate actually Wrote it, served him better than their proposed modification, ‘He said, I am king of the Jews’ (John 19:31)
Iconoclastes - ...
Adrian Wrote and answer; and in 794 a council of 300 bishops, assembled by Charlemagne, at Francfort, on the Maine, confirmed the opinion contained in the four books, and solemnly condemned the worship of images. However, the Iconoclastes still had their adherents among the Latins; the most eminent of whom was Claudius, bishop of Turin, who, in 823, ordered all images, and even the crosses to be cast out of the churches, and committed to the flames; and he Wrote a treatise, in which he declared both against the use and worship of them
Dionysius (3), Bishop of Corinth - Dionysius informs the church of Rome that the day on which he Wrote, being the Lord's day, had been kept holy, and that they had then read the letter of the Roman church, and would continue from time to time to read it for their instruction, as they were in the habit of reading the letter formerly written from the same church by the hand of Clement; and speaking of the falsification of his own letters, he adds, "No marvel, then, that some have attempted to tamper with the Scriptures of the Lord, since they have attempted it on writings not comparable to them (οὐ τοιαύταις ). In speaking of attempts to corrupt the Scriptures, Dionysius probably refers to the heresy of Marcion, against which, we are told, he Wrote in his letter to the church of Nicomedia, "defending the rule of truth
Joshua, the Book of - That Joshua Wrote the book is probable because...
(1) he certainly Wrote one transaction in it (Joshua 24:26), and scarcely any but Joshua himself is likely to have written the parting addresses, his last legacy to Israel (Joshua 23-24)
Manes, Called Also Mani - 973–1048, and lived and Wrote near there. According to Epiphanius he also Wrote treatises on astronomy, astrology, and magic
Interpretation - They will understand the messages of the Old Testament prophets and the New Testament letter-writers only as they understand the circumstances in which the writers Wrote. They will need to know who the writers were, when and where they Wrote, and what purpose they had in writing (e
Bethsaida - Is it possible that historians who, as it is evident from such examples, discover throughout so nice a knowledge of geographical arrangements and local and even temporary circumstances, should have written at a time when the theatre of events was unknown to them, when not only their native country was destroyed, but their nation scattered, and the national existence of the Jews extinguished and extirpated? On the contrary, all this is in proof that they Wrote at the very period which they profess, and it also proves the usual antiquity assigned to the Gospels
Biblical Commission - ...
Moses must be held to be the author of the Pentateuch, though it was conceded that he might have used secretaries in the actual writing, who Wrote under his guidance and whose work was approved by Moses and published under his name
Strife - Paul was a keen controversialist, he never Wrote a letter that did not contain the word ‘peace
Nehemiah - All that we know of Nehemiah comes from the book that he Wrote (Nehemiah 1:1)
Malachi - Some people in ancient Israel believed that an angel Wrote this book because of the name
Levites - Clement of Alexandria Wrote that Jesus, ‘on His interlocutor inquiring, “Who is my neighbour?” did not, in the same way with the Jews, specify the blood-relation, or the fellow-citizen, or the proselyte, or him that had been similarly circumcised, or the man who uses one and the same law
Atticus, Archbaptist of Constantinople - He Wrote to the bishops of Pamphylia and to Amphilochius of Iconium, calling on them to drive out the Messalians (Phot
God - We are told by Eusebius, that in his days the Jews Wrote the holy name in Samaritan characters, when they had occasion to mention the name of the Lord, lest that strangers, and not of the stock of Israel, should profane it
Galatia - Paul and Barnabas carried the light of the Gospel into the regions of Galatia at a very early period; and it appears from the epistle which the former subsequently Wrote to the churches in that country, that they had at first received it with great joy, Galatians 4:15
Baruch - ...
Jeremiah was instructed a second time to commit his prophecies to writing; and Baruch Wrote them as before, with the addition of several others which were not contained in the former book
Patrophilus of Scythopolis - When Arius, driven from Alexandria, took refuge in Palestine, Patrophilus was one of the Palestinian bishops who warmly espoused his cause, Wrote in support of his teaching (Athan
Procopius of Caesarea - This last, intended for publication only after the author's death, is described by Cave in the strongest terms of reprobation, as written to shew the court of Justinian as no better than a diabolorum lerna , and as exhibiting such audacity, falsehood, calumny, and charges of unheard-of crimes, that it has been doubted whether Procopius really Wrote it
Simeon Stylites - Simeon Wrote many epistles on current ecclesiastical matters: (1) one Evagrius mentions ( H
Symmachus, Bishop of Rome - Symmachus then Wrote to this effect to the bishops of Gaul, and in 514 to Caesarius, warning him to respect the ancient rights of other metropolitans and to report anything amiss in Gaul or Spain to Rome

Victor Vitensis - 253–275) maintains with much learning and acuteness that Victor was born in Vita that his see is unknown that he was consecrated bishop after the persecution and Wrote his History before 487 and that this History is a piece of tendency-writing and untrustworthy
Harmony of the Gospels - Ammonius took the text of Matthew and Wrote beside the text in parallel columns any passages from the other three gospels which corresponded to them. He decided that Matthew Wrote first and that Mark produced his gospel by abridging what Matthew had written. In either case, those who believed this hypothesis assumed Matthew, Mark, and Luke individually selected material from this gospel as they Wrote their accounts
Timothy, the Second Epistle to - Again, when he Wrote to the Colossians (Colossians 4:14) during his first imprisonment (Philemon 1:24) Demas was with him; but when he is writing 2 Timothy (2 Timothy 4:10) Demas had forsaken him and gone to Thessalonica, all have deserted him (2 Timothy 1:15). The writer of Hebrews 13:23-24, doubtless Paul, was at liberty and in Italy; liberated from his first imprisonment at Rome, Paul must have resumed his apostolic journeyings, then was imprisoned at Rome again; thence just before his death he Wrote 2 Timothy (See PAUL
Faithfulness - Paul Wrote to the Thessalonians that all must work with quietness and eat their own bread, and that none must leave their common work and live in idleness (2 Thessalonians 3). Paul Wrote more than once that those who were called to be Christians must abide faithfully in their callings and perform their duties
Matthew - Townson, understand it in very different senses; and Eusebius, who lived a hundred and fifty years after Irenaeus, barely says, that Matthew Wrote his Gospel just before he left Judea to preach the religion of Christ in other countries; but when that was, neither he nor any other ancient author informs us with certainty. Matthew Wrote his Gospel in Hebrew, yet they have not informed us by whom it was translated into Greek
Petrus ii., Archbaptist of Alexandria - Peter remained for some time in concealment, whence he Wrote his encyclical (Tillem. " Dorotheus, angered in his turn, said something which offended Peter's dignity and Peter Wrote to Basil, complaining of this and of his silence in regard to the exile's conduct
Philaster, Bishop of Brixia - When Augustine at length yielding to his correspondent's request Wrote a short treatise on heresies he first gives an abstract of the 60 post-Christian heresies discussed by Epiphanius and then adds a list of 23 more from Philastrius remarking that this author gives others also but that he himself does not regard them as heresies. 368, and died in 391; and the "nuper" would lead us to think that Philaster Wrote early in this episcopate
Ambrosius of Milan - Another source is a Life by Paulinus, his notarius or secretary, who had been with him at his death and Wrote at the suggestion of St. In that year he was preparing to go to the assistance of his uncle Valens against the barbarian invaders by whom he was hard pressed; and desiring to be fortified against the arguments of the Arians whom Valens was favouring at Constantinople, he Wrote to Ambrose, and asked him to furnish him with a controversial treatise in support of the orthodox faith. In the following year Gratian Wrote a letter, preserved with those of Ambrose, in which he requests another copy of that work, together with an additional argument upon the divinity of the Holy Spirit. He consulted such bishops and presbyters as were within reach, and in their name Wrote a letter to the emperor (Ep. He Wrote a letter to the emperor (who was at Milan, Ambrose being for the moment at Aquileia), entreating him most earnestly to revoke the order. Ambrose now Wrote him a letter (Ep 51 ), which Gibbon most unjustly calls "a miserable rhapsody on a noble subject," but which most readers will feel to be worthy of its high purpose. Shortly after this withdrawal, he Wrote a respectful letter to Eugenius, explaining that the reason why he had refused to hold intercourse with him was that he had given permission, though himself a Christian, that the altar of Victory should be restored—the boon which Symmachus had begged for in vain being yielded to the power of Arbogastes
Irenaeus, Bishop of Lyons - That Irenaeus Wrote the epistle of the Gallican confessors to the churches of Asia Minor and Phrygia, which so vividly describes the persecution (ap. The preface informs us that he then first Wrote as an ecclesiastical writer. , was made great use of by Hippolytus (or whoever Wrote the Philosophumena ), Epiphanius, and Theodoret. That Irenaeus Wrote as bishop, and not earlier than 178 as presbyter, is by far most probable, though it cannot be drawn with absolute certainty from the words of the preface to bk. of Rome, concerning Florinus, a presbyter who was a partisan of the error of Valentinus, and published an abominable book, thus Wrote:" whereupon follows the fragment itself. of Smyrna and martyr, and for this reason is held in just estimation, Wrote to an Alexandrian that it is right, with respect to the Feast of the Resurrection, that we should celebrate it upon the first day of the week. 24) that Irenaeus Wrote on the same subject to several persons, it is possible that this Alexandrian may have been another than Blastus
Inspiration - Luke Wrote his Gospel. It appears to some to be expressly intimated that he Wrote after St. John Wrote his after the other three. Luke Wrote first. But if they Wrote before him, the want of these particulars gives to their Gospels an appearance of imperfection which we cannot easily explain. Luke, who was not an Apostle, Wrote his Gospel from personal knowledge, attained by his being a companion of Jesus, or from the information of others. Luke Wrote, and who, in his introduction, represents himself as worthy of credit, because he had not merely inquired of those who knew, but παρηκολουθηκοτα τοις γεγονοσιν , which he explains by this expression: Πολλων μεν...
αυτουργος πραξεων , and to state in the third verse that he, πλειστων δ ' αυτοπτης γενομενος , an actor in many things, and an eye-witness of most
Pelagianism And Pelagius - 405), Pelagius Wrote to Paulinus (Aug. Augustine added to this treatise as a third book a letter he Wrote to Marcellinus when, a very few days after the compilation of the two books, he became acquainted with some fresh arguments against original sin advanced in the exposition of the Epistles of St. Tidings of such a fresh outbreak came in 414 from Sicily, where one Hilary Wrote to him that some Christians at Syracuse were asserting that man can be without sin and easily keep the commandments of God, if he will; that an unbaptized infant overtaken by death cannot possibly perish deservedly, as he is born without sin. It was alleged that he Wrote that evil did not even enter the thought of the good Christian. A synod at Mileum in Numidia in 416, attended by 61 bishops, Wrote a letter to Innocent to the same effect, and with these two synodical letters was sent a letter from Augustine and four brother-bishops, Aurelius, Alypius, Evodius, and Possidius, in which they sought to discount the acquittal of Pelagius in the East at Diospolis by saying that the result had only been obtained by the accused concealing his real sentiments and acknowledging the orthodox faith in ambiguous language, calculated to deceive the Eastern prelates, ignorant as they were of the full force of Latin words, and at the mercy of an interpreter. Heros and Lazarus, who had not appeared to substantiate the charges made against the Pelagians, and after an interval of two months Wrote to Aurelius and other African bishops, censuring them for the premature condemnation of Coelestius. He Wrote afresh to Aurelius and the African bishops, upbraiding them vehemently for their readiness to condemn men without a proper opportunity of defence, strongly denouncing the personal character of Heros and Lazarus as rendering them untrustworthy witnesses, and gratefully acknowledging that Pelagius and his followers had never really been estranged from Catholic truth—a conclusion strikingly different from that of his immediate predecessor

Church of England - Henry, indeed, in early life, and during the former part of his reign, was a bigotted papist: he burnt the famous Tyndal (who made one of the first and best translations of the New Testament;) and Wrote in defense of the seven sacraments against Luther, for which the pope gave him the title of " The Defender of the Faith
Nehemiah, the Book of - " Aramaisms also agree with the age when Nehemiah Wrote
Mark (John) - Peter speaks of a Mark as his ‘son’ ( 1 Peter 5:13 ), and as being with him at ‘Babylon’ when he Wrote the First Epistle
si'Mon - (John 19:17 ) Mark describes him as the father of Alexander and Rufus, perhaps because this was the Rufus known to the Roman Christians, (Romans 16:13 ) for whom he more especially Wrote
ti'Tus - Paul Wrote, at no great interval of time afterward, in the last of the Pastoral Epistles, (2 Timothy 4:10 ) for Dalmatia lay to the north of Nicopolis, at no great distance from it

Thessalonians - Paul Wrote the First Epistle to the Thessalonians; and it is to be supposed that the subjects of which it treats, were suggested by the account which he received from Timothy
Romans - Paul, when he Wrote this epistle, had not been at Rome, Romans 1:13 ; Romans 15:23 ; but he had heard an account of the state of the church in that city from Aquila and Priscilla, two Christians who were banished from thence by the edict of Claudius, and with whom he lived during his first visit to Corinth
Sabellians - Watts, toward the close of his life, adopted this opinion, and Wrote several pieces in its defence
Romans, Epistle to the - Paul Wrote
Lucianus, Priest of Antioch, Martyr - He also Wrote some doctrinal treatises, and a commentary on Job
Ignatius - Besides, Ignatius is absolutely silent on the subject of the Apostle John, which, had Ignatius known him, would be very puzzling, considering that Ignatius Wrote a long letter to the Ephesians. 1): ‘Ye Wrote to me, both ye yourselves and Ignatius, asking that if any one should go to Syria he might carry thither the letters from you. From this passage we may infer that Ignatius Wrote to Polycarp during his stay in Philippi; and that the Philippians Wrote to the Church of Antioch at the same time as to Polycarp. ...
By the time Polycarp Wrote this letter, Ignatius had left Philippi and was en route for Rome: ‘Moreover, concerning Ignatius himself and those that were with him, if ye have any sure tidings, certify us’ (13:2). In Romans 4:2 he Wrote: ‘Rather entice the wild beasts, that they may become my sepulchre and may leave no part of my body behind
Gospel - They often Wrote out of the fear of what would happen if their nation was defeated or destroyed and no one was left to transmit orally the living traditions to the next generation. They Wrote down the good news of Jesus to strengthen, to educate, and to encourage those who already accepted its message. Thus, they Wrote primarily to convince, not to record facts. ...
The best evidence indicates Mark Wrote the Gospel for Christians in Rome faced with the first great persecution and the loss of leaders such as Peter
Language of the nt - Thayer Wrote his excellent article in vol. When, therefore, they thought and Wrote in Greek, they were prone to translate literally from their native tongue; and ‘Aramaisms’ thus infected the Greek, side by side with the ‘Hebraisms’ which came from the LXX Luke, Gospel of - 160-190 agree that Luke, the physician and companion of Paul, Wrote the Gospel of Luke. Luke reached Rome in Paul's company and was in Rome when Paul Wrote Colossians (Colossians 4:14 ) and Philemon (24) during this first Roman imprisonment. Beginning with the birth narratives of John the Baptist and Jesus, he Wrote with the eye for detail of a historian (see Luke 7:31-50 ,Luke 1:5,1:36 ,Luke 1:36,1:56 ,Luke 5:27-32:59 ; 1618838026_79 ,Luke 2:1-2,2:7 ,Luke 2:7,2:42 ; Luke 3:23 ; Luke 9:20 ,Luke 9:20,9:37 ,Luke 9:37,9:57 ; Luke 22:1 ,Luke 22:1,22:7 ,Luke 22:7,22:66 ; Luke 23:44 ,Luke 23:44,23:54 ; Luke 24:1 ,Luke 24:1,24:13 ,Luke 8:40-56:29 ,Luke 24:29,24:33 )
Hilarius Arelatensis, Saint, Bishop of Arles - But when, after the death of Hilary (May 5, 449), the prelates of the provinces announced to Leo that Ravennius had been elected and duly consecrated, Leo Wrote an acknowledgment which sounds like a virtual retractation of his imputations on the motives and character of Hilary and most justly entitled him a man "of holy memory. ...
We have the authority of Hilary's biographer for asserting that he did compose some poetry (versus ), Wrote many letters, an explanation of the Creed (Symboli Expositio —this is a main element in Waterland's argument) and sermons for all the church's festivals (Homiliae in totius Anni Festivitates ). These were apparently extant when Honoratus Wrote
the Slothful Servant Who Hid His Lord's Money - And on Monday morning the first thing he did, while the shame and the pain of his bad work were still in his heart, he rose and took his sermon to pieces, re-arranged it in the light of yesterday, re-wrote it from beginning to end, and preached it again next Sabbath, a completely new creation, and a conscientious, a living, and a life-giving, message. Newman re-wrote all his sermons three times over, and one of his best-written books he re-wrote five times
Paul in Arabia - You Wrote that name everywhere. But, on all that Moses ever Wrote, there was nothing that Paul spent so much time and strength, as just on this concerning the father of the faithful,-that Abraham believed in the Lord, and it was counted to him for righteousness. For it was in Arabia, and it was under the Mount of God, that Paul's apostolic ink-horn was first filled with that ink of God with which he long afterwards Wrote that so little understood writing of his, which we call the Seventh of the Romans

Prudentius Wrote these books to counteract their influence
Biblical Criticism - The textual critic gathers and compares these readings from every available source and endeavors to decide exactly what the author Wrote. Literary and historical criticism tries to discover who the author of the book was, when and where he Wrote, what were his sources, methods, and purpose, and what is the historical value of his work
Galatians, Epistle to the - They may, alas, have as readily received the Judaising teachers, and when this came to the ears of Paul, he Wrote this Epistle to them. This has caused some to suppose that Paul Wrote the Epistle to them after his first visit; and that he gave them the directions as to the collection on his second visit; but they may have been given by another letter or by a private messenger
Drunkenness - ‘Manifest are the works of the flesh,’ Wrote St. Many of the Fathers, following the example of Philo-who Wrote a book περὶ μέθης on Genesis 9:21 -dealt with the subject at length
Thessalonians, Epistles to the - He was cheered by the news which Timothy brought of their faith and love, and Wrote the First Epistle from Corinth, about A. This is mainly occupied with the development and direction of living affections in the newly converted saints to whom Paul Wrote

Timothy - While in Corinth, Paul Wrote his Epistles to the Thessalonians, and included Timothy in the greetings ( 1 Thessalonians 1:1 , 2 Thessalonians 1:1 )

Gregorius, Saint., the Illuminator - He Wrote letters to St
Philippi - Immediately after Polycarp Wrote to the Philippians, sending at their request a copy of all the letters of Ignatius which the church of Smyrna had; so they still retained the same sympathy with sufferers for Christ as in Paul's days
Bible - In the prologue, or preface, the writer, or translator, begs pardon for any errors that he may have fallen into in this service; which at once implies his opinion that he had no idea the author Wrote it under divine inspiration
Damasus, Pope - In later letters Jerome speaks in high terms of Damasus; calls him "that illustrious man, that virgin doctor of the virgin church," "eager to catch the first sound of the preaching of continence"; who "wrote both verse and prose in favour of virginity" (Epp
Colosse - That this salutary purpose might be effectually accomplished, Paul, accompanied by Silas and Timothy, went at different times into Phrygia, and preached the Gospel in many cities of that country with great success; but it is thought by many persons, that the Epistle to the Colossians contains internal marks of his never having been at Colosse when he Wrote it
Behmenists - ...
Behmen Wrote several other treatises; but these are the basis of all his other writings
Fathers - Parr, his erudite biographer, will convey his sentiments on this very interesting subject: "Indeed he had so great an esteem of the ANCIENT AUTHORS, for the acquiring any solid learning, whether sacred or profane, that his advice to young students, either in divinity or antiquity, was, not to spend too much time in epitomes, but to set themselves to read the ancient authors themselves; as, to begin with the FATHERS, and to read them according to the ages in which they lived, (which was the method he had taken himself,) and, together with them, carefully to peruse the CHURCH HISTORIANS that treated of that age in which those fathers lived: by which means the student would be better able to perceive the reason and meaning of divers passages in their writings, (which otherwise would be obscure,) when he knew the original and growth of those heresies and heterodox opinions against which they Wrote, and may also better judge what doctrines, ceremonies, and opinions prevailed in the church in every age, and by what means introduced
Eating - Buxtorf, and Leo of Modena, who have given particular accounts of the Jewish ceremonies, differ in some circumstances: the reason is, Buxtorf Wrote principally the ceremonies of the German Jews, and Leo, those of the Italian Jews
Joshua - " Though there is not a perfect agreement among the learned concerning the author of this book, yet by far the most general opinion is, that it was written by Joshua himself; and, indeed, in the last chapter it is said that "Joshua Wrote these words in the book of the law of God;" which expression seems to imply that he subjoined this history to that written by Moses

"I naturally Wrote to those who had written to me. " He adds emphatically, "Though I alone Wrote, I did so in the name of, and as expressing the sentiments of, all the Italian bishops. Before that he again visited Rome, and was again cordially received by Julius, who Wrote a letter of congratulation to the clergy and laity of Alexandria, remarkable for its warmth of feeling and beauty of expression
Daniel - "...
So Ezekiel's reference, in what it alleges and in what it omits, exactly tallies with what we should expect, presuming that Ezekiel and Daniel lived and Wrote when and where they are represented. His mention of Darius the Mede's reign, which profane history ignores (probably because it was eclipsed by Cyrus' glory), shows that he Wrote as a contemporary historian of events which He knew, and did not borrow from others
Love - This love of which Paul Wrote is somewhat different from the love we normally experience and speak about.

Love-Feast - Paul Wrote; that all the members of the Church came together to it, bringing their own contributions. But this translation of the word does not seem possible; and we are clearly driven to the conclusion that, among the people to whom Jude Wrote, the Agape was an established institution, and the name had already been given to it
Columbanus, Abbat of Luxeuil And Bobbio - " At the same time he Wrote to pope Gregory the Great several letters on the subject, as afterwards to pope Boniface IV. At Milan he was soon engaged in a controversy with the many Arians of Lombardy, and about this time Wrote to the pope Boniface IV

He Wrote several short books here "in a style which though already enlisted in Thy service still breathed in that time of waiting the pride of the School" (Conf.

In addition to the public discussions already referred to, he Wrote at this time the famous tract de Utilitate Credendi ; another, de Duabus Animabus, a tract against the Manichean Adimantus; and the imperfect work de Genesi ad Literam, a work which he abandoned, as he felt his novice-hand unequal to the task (Retr.

He adds that this school of Callistus still continued when he Wrote, which was plainly after the death of Callistus, and he refuses to give its members any name but Callistians. Whether Hippolytus was bishop or presbyter, he Wrote his attacks on Callistus in Greek and addressed them to Greek-speaking people, and there is no evidence that he made any assault on the unity of the Latin-speaking church. Photius remarks that the author of the work on the universe also Wrote the Labyrinth , according to a statement at the end of that work. 30), and which the author states that he had previously given in other books, precisely agrees with that in the Chronicle of Hippolytus; and though this chronicle was probably later than the Refutation , Hippolytus Wrote commentaries on Genesis, where this enumeration would naturally be given in treating of c
Corinthians, Second Epistle to - While there, he heard of the terrible immorality, and Wrote a short letter ( 1 Corinthians 5:9 ), ordering them to have no intercourse with fornicators. Then in the spring of 57 he Wrote 1 Cor. Still more, it was during these three months that he Wrote his great Epistle to the Romans, the quiet tone and massive strength of which bear witness to the restfulness of the Apostle’s mind and heart, as well as to the complete victory over the Judaizers
Joannes, Bishop of Ephesus - Land (Johann von Ephesus der erste syrische Kirchenhistoriker ) discusses his identification with one or other of his numerous namesakes who Wrote during the same period; and has pronounced in the negative.

Irenaeus, however, Wrote within a century of the apostle John and did not mention Nero

It must suffice to say here that if, as on the whole seems likely, Exodus 20:1-26 b refers to our Decalogue, we must distinguish the command to write the covenant laws in Exodus 34:27 , and the words ‘he Wrote’ in Exodus 34:28 b, in which case the subject of the latter will be God, as required by Exodus 34:1
Eusebius, Bishop of Samosata - " This reply incensed the emperor, who Wrote to Eusebius ordering him to deliver the decree on pain of amputation of his right hand. 13) through Phoenicia and Palestine, ordaining presbyters and deacons, and must thus have become known to Basil, who on the death of Eusebius of Caesarea Wrote to Gregory (Bas
Gnosticism - Gnosticism was thus a major threat to the early church; and the early church leaders, such as Irenaeus (died about 200), Tertullian (died about 220), and Hippolytus (died about 236), Wrote voluminously against it. Irenaeus reported that one of the reasons John Wrote his Gospel was to refute the views of Cerinthus, an early Gnostic

Gospels - Luke Wrote, these records had not been written by eye-witnesses. Luke Wrote, there were numerous Gospels, only one of these survived till Irenæus’ time (see § 4 ). Luke Wrote ( Luke 1:1 ). or something very like it was before the First and Third Evangelists when they Wrote. was the work of one who Wrote so early that he had never seen the Synoptic record, but this is contradicted by the internal evidence just detailed, or else it was written by one who occupied such a prominent position that he could give his own experiences without stopping to explain an apparent contradiction of former Gospels
Polycarp - Further, Ignatius Wrote: ‘I salute the bishop worthy of God (ἀσπάζομαι τὸν ἀξιόθεον ἐπίσκοπον), who is your bishop. Before leaving Troas, Ignatius Wrote his epistle to ‘Polycarp, bishop of the church of the Smyrnaeans. the Epistle of Polycarp was read in the liturgical assemblies of the province of Asia; but the assertion remains unconfirmed, and everybody knows that Jerome often Wrote very hurriedly. 1); they Wrote to him at the same time as Ignatius, and charged him with a letter to Antioch (xiii. These last words prove that Polycarp did not know the fate of Ignatius at the time when he Wrote to the Philippians, and it has been concluded from this that Ignatius had quite recently left Philippi en route for Rome
Papias - —Papias Wrote a work in five books, entitled ‘Exposition of the Lord’s Oracles (Logia). ’ Quoting from this, Irenaeus Wrote, about a. ]'>[1] which was perhaps meant to lower the authority of both Gospels (since Mark also had Jewish features of the kind in question), Papias cites a tradition derived from a man of the first Christian generation, ‘the Elder’ (? John, see below), as he styles him—...
‘And this the Elder used to say: Mark, indeed (μέν), having been Peter’s interpreter, Wrote down with accuracy, yet not in order, everything he bore in mind—the things, namely, either said or done by the Christ (or Lord). ...
Probably the sentence beginning ‘But Matthew,’ which the ‘Mark, indeed (μέν), …’ of the extract in Eusebius seems to imply, included a statement that Matthew Wrote ‘among the Hebrews,’ i. ...
While it is likely that Papias based on the Elder’s testimony his own assertion that Matthew himself Wrote his collection of the Lord’s Oracles, it seems precarious to lean much weight on the statement
Holy Spirit - ...

Deborah - the scribes of the host (Jeremiah 52:25) who Wrote down the names of the soldiers
Acts of the Apostles - Thus he Wrote a great portion of that history from personal observation

Corinth - The Apostle Wrote at least three letters to the church: the first, which is lost ( 1 Corinthians 5:9 ); the second, which we call First Corinthians, and which was probably carried by Titus (Timothy also visited Corinth at the instance of St

Ambrosiaster, or Pseudo-Ambrosius - Augustine it must be taken into account that he Wrote before that Father had published his opinions
Irenaeus, Bishop of Tyre - 35, 110), and Wrote him frequent letters
Antichrist - Now there has been no change of dispensation since this epistle was written, and John Wrote much later, from which we learn that the revelation of the antichrist is still future, though doubtless the mystery of iniquity is getting ripe for his appearing; that which hindered and still hinders the manifestation of the antichrist is doubtless the presence of the Holy Spirit on earth

To Proclus the matter appeared so serious that towards the close of 437 he Wrote to John of Antioch, as the leading prelate of the East, though really having no canonical jurisdiction over Osrhoene, begging him to persuade Ibas, if innocent, to remove the scandal by condemning publicly certain propositions chiefly drawn from Theodore's writings against the errors of Nestorius
Paul the Aged - IT is calculated that the Apostle must have been somewhere between fifty-eight and sixty-four when he Wrote of himself to Philemon as Paul the aged. Cicero Wrote his Cato at sixty-three, and the great orator's design in that famous dialogue was to brace up those men around him whose knees were beginning to tremble, and their hands to hang down about that time of life. And Cicero goes on to fortify first himself and then his readers, with such examples as those of Plato, who died at his desk at eightyone; and Isocrates, who Wrote one of his best books at ninety-four, and who lived another five years on the fame of it; and Gorgias the Leontine, who completed a hundred and seven years, and never to the end loitered in his love of work, but died leaving this testimony on his deathbed, "I have had no cause for blaming old age," he said

Job - )...
Understanding the book...
There is no certainty concerning who Wrote the book of Job or when it was written
Victor, Bishop of Rome - of Rome did not in that age carry any irresistible weight with other churches, for Eusebius expressly tells us that "these things did not please all the bishops," and that they Wrote "sharply assailing Victor
Gregorius (14) Nazianzenus, Bishop of Sasima And of Constantinople - >From Caesarea he again Wrote to Gregory, after which Gregory set out for Pontus. Towards the end of 363 or the beginning of 364 he Wrote two Invectives against Julian (Orat. He Wrote also to Eusebius of Samosata by the hands of the deacon Eustathius, urging him to go to Caesarea and promote Basil's election ( Ep. Basil Wrote reproaching him, and he replied in the same tone. ...

Leo i, the Great - Cyril of Alexandria Wrote to Leo against the ambitious design of juvenal of Jerusalem to obtain for his see the dignity of a patriarchate ( Ep. Turribius, their active opponent, Wrote to Leo for advice, and Leo replies in July 447 ( Ep. Eutyches early in 448 Wrote to Leo apparently deploring the revival of Nestorianism. Galla Placidia Wrote at the same time to Pulcheria, expressing detestation of the Ephesine synod, and describing how Leo, when solemnly asking their intercession with Theodosius, could hardly speak for grief ( Ep. Leo Wrote in July 450 to Theodosius, whom he still addresses with the utmost respect, requiring that Anatolius should read the Catholic Fathers and the Ep
Nestorius And Nestorianism - Cyril Wrote to the monks of Constantinople commenting severely on the action of Nestorius, and insisting strongly that the union of the Godhead and Manhood in Jesus Christ was a real union, and not a mere conjunction. When he learned that his letter was resented, he Wrote one to Nestorius himself. Approached by an Alexandrian presbyter named Lampon, who came to Constantinople in the interests of peace, Nestorius professed himself much touched by Lampon's tone, and Wrote to Cyril in a more friendly spirit. He Wrote two treatises on the controversy, one addressed to the emperor and empress (Eudocia), and the other to Pulcheria and the other sisters of the emperor. Then he Wrote to Celestine of Rome an unfair account of what had occurred
Gospels (2) - Paul Wrote. Justin’s language here certainly implies that, when he Wrote, the term ‘Gospels’ was in common use in the Christian Church. Paul Wrote had a more intimate and living acquaintance with the facts of the Gospel history than is usual with Christians in our own day. Paul Wrote a knowledge of deeds and words of Christ that made the Apostle’s appeal intelligible
Gregorius Nyssenus, Bishop of Nyssa - Their common friend, Eusebius of Samosata, Wrote to Basil to remonstrate on his burying so distinguished a man in so unworthy a see. Basil Wrote also to a man of distinction named Aburgius, begging him to use his influence to save Gregory from the misery of being dragged into court and implicated in judicial business from which his peaceful disposition shrank ( ib. After his expulsion from his see his namesake Wrote that, though denied his wish to accompany him in his banishment, he went with him in spirit, and trusted in God that the storm would soon blow over, and he get the better of all his enemies, as a recompense for his strict orthodoxy (Greg. Gregory Nazianzen, who was prevented from being present by illness, Wrote a consolatory letter, praising his namesake very highly, and saying that his chief comfort now was to see all Basil's virtues reflected in him, as in a mirror (Greg
John, Gospel of - ...
But when these allowances have been made, it is clearly a matter of the very first importance whether the Fourth Gospel is, on the one hand, the work of an eye-witness, belonging to the innermost circle of Jesus’ disciples, who after a long interval Wrote a trustworthy record of what he had heard and seen, interpreted through the mellowing medium of half a century of Christian experience and service; or, on the other, a treatise of speculative theology cast into the form of an imaginative biography of Jesus, dating from the second or third decade of the 2nd cent. 170; Clement, head of the catechetical school in Alexandria, about 190; and Tertullian, the eloquent African Father, who Wrote at the end of the century, and who quotes freely from all the Gospels by name. It is certain that Heracleon of the Valentinian school of Gnostics knew and quoted the Gospel as a recognized authority, and it would even appear that he Wrote an elaborate commentary on the whole Gospel. In this case, however, the indirect suggestion of authorship either must indicate that the Apostle Wrote the book, modestly veiling his own identity, or else it points to an unwarrantable pretence on the part of a later writer, who threw his own ideas into the form of a (largely imaginary) narrative
Inspiration - At the close of this period, or rather several years after it, when they Wrote their Gospels, we may be certain that they had forgotten many of his discourses and miracles; that they recollected others indistinctly; and that they would have been in danger or producing an inaccurate and unfair account, by confounding one thing with another. No man could write an intelligible discourse on a subject which he does not understand, unless he were furnished with the words as well as the sentiments; and that the penmen of the Scriptures did not always understand what they Wrote, might be safely inferred from the comparative darkness of the dispensation under which some of them lived; and is intimated by Peter, when he says, that the prophets 'enquired and searched diligently what, and what manner of time the Spirit of Christ which was in them did signify, when it testified beforehand the sufferings of Christ, and the glory that should follow. a promise which cannot be reasonably understood to signify less than that both words and sentiments should be dictated to them, it is fully as credible that they should be assisted in the same manner when they Wrote, especially as the record was to last through all ages, and to be a rule of faith to all the nations of the earth
Paul - He Wrote that Jesus had appeared to him (1 Corinthians 15:8-10 ; 1 Corinthians 9:1 ); the gospel Paul preached had come by revelation (Galatians 1:12 ); he had been called by God (Galatians 1:1 ; Ephesians 3:2-12 ).

Galatians, Epistle to the - Paul had, when he Wrote, paid two visits to the Galatians. On hearing this the Apostle hastily Wrote the Epistle to check the evil, and (probably) soon followed up the Epistle with a personal visit. Paul Wrote off hastily, despatched Timothy back with the letter, and as soon as possible followed himself ( Acts 18:23 )
Ebionism (2) - But it may be said that while the whole trend of recent scholarship is unfavourable to the views of those who would make the Gospel according to the Hebrews either the ‘Ur-Matthaeus’ itself or an expanded edition of it, some grounds can be alleged for thinking that it represents an early Aramaic tradition of the Gospel story which was in existence when the author of Canonical Matthew Wrote his book, and upon which to some extent he may have drawn,—a tradition which would naturally be more Jewish and national in its outlook than that represented by the Greek written sources on which he placed his main dependence (see Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible, Extra Vol. On the one hand, we have the statements of Irenaeus and others that the Apostle John Wrote his Gospel to combat the errors of Cerinthus (Iren. ...
The residuum of truth that lies between these two contrary views may perhaps be found in the fact that the author was a contemporary of Cerinthus, and that he Wrote his Gospel in full view of prevailing Cerinthian error
John the Apostle - The Gospel closes with an account of Peter’s inquiry concerning the future of his friend and companion on so many occasions; and in John 19:35 as well as in John 21:24 it is noted that the disciple ‘who Wrote these things’ bore witness of that which he himself had seen, and that his witness is true. 180, records an account of the origin of the Fourth Gospel, to the effect that John Wrote it in obedience to a special revelation made to himself and Andrew. John had long resided and laboured, Wrote of his ministry there after an interval not longer than that which separates our own time from (say) the passing of the Reform Bill of 1832 or the battle of Waterloo
Mss - The educated classes spoke and Wrote Greek freely; the uneducated classes were largely recruited from the East, and spoke Greek more naturally than Latin. Paul Wrote to it in Greek. Peter, writing in the name of the Roman Church to their brethren in Corinth, Wrote in Greek. , came from Asia Minor, and Wrote his works in Greek
Augustine - He there held a public disputation with Fortunatus, a celebrated priest among the Manichees, and acquitted himself with great spirit and success; he also Wrote and preached largely and to great effect against the Donatists and Manichees. " These remarks are important, as proceeding from the pen of the personal friend of Father Paul, who Wrote the History of the council of Trent. He sometimes Wrote letters, when desired, on temporal subjects; but looked upon all this as unprofitable occupation, which drew him aside from that which was better and more agreeable to himself. He was a rhetorician by profession, and the degenerate taste of that age must be blamed, rather than the individual who Wrote in the style which then prevailed
Targums - The latter was a pupil of Hillel, and Wrote a Targum (according to the passage just referred to) for the purpose of removing ‘all impediments to the understanding of the Scriptures’ ( JE Euchites - ...
Between the accession of Sisinnius and the council of Ephesus in 431, John of Antioch Wrote to Nestorius about the Messalians, and Theodosius legislated against them (xvi. He Wrote a work called the Testament , answered by the Monophysite Severus, afterwards bp
Alexander the Coppersmith - And the first of those questions is this: Have we got in our present text the very and identical words that Paul penned in his parchment to Timothy? Have we got the literal and exact expressions, and discriminations of expressions, that Paul so studiously employed? Have we got the very moods and tenses, both in grammar and in morals, that were in Paul's mind and heart at the moment when he Wrote these two so difficult verses about Alexander? That is a very interesting, important, and indeed indispensable, question. Suppose that Paul both thought and felt and Wrote about Alexander as our version literally reads, what are we to do? Are we free to follow Paul, and to do what he here does? Are we free to execrate and denounce bad men, and hand them over to be rewarded according to their works? Are we free, and is it our duty, to imprecate God's judgments on those who do us much evil, and who withstand the work of God which has been committed to our hands? A whole controversy of New Testament scholarship, and another whole controversy of New Testament morals and religion, have arisen around this text concerning Alexander the coppersmith
Simon Maccabaeus - Luke Wrote the Acts of the Apostles the heresy of Simon was widely spread; and therefore he tells his readers how it had begun. It will be observed, also, that Eusebius, who Wrote after Arnobius, does not say any thing of Simon's extraordinary end; but merely states that his credit and influence were extinguished, as soon as St
Joannes Presbyter - An anonymous but ancient note even makes Papias the scribe who Wrote the gospel from the apostle's dictation. But might he not first enumerate John in his list of seven apostles, concerning whom he had been able to glean traditions, and a second time in his shorter list of men of the first Christian generation who had survived to his own day? Papias Wrote for the men of his time, to whom the facts were well known, and the idea of being misunderstood would no more occur to him than it would to us, if we spoke of one of our leading statesmen at one moment by his surname only, the next with the addition of his title or Christian name
Jordanis, Historian of the Goths - The very theory with which he Wrote shews that much must be accepted with reserve. ...
Several considerations make it exceedingly probable that Jordanis Wrote his work at Constantinople
Vigilius, Bishop of Rome - 538) refutes all the arguments of Baronius, while alleging that the Roman see was not compromised, since Vigilius was not the true pope when he Wrote. ...
Justinian was evidently kept in the dark about these secret proceedings, since, after the death of Silverius, he Wrote to Vigilius, sending a confession of his own faith and recognizing him as pope without any suspicion of his orthodoxy
Elijah - It may be supposed either that Elijah anticipated the character of Jehoram, and so Wrote the warning message, which was preserved in the schools of the prophets till Jehoram ascended the throne after the Tishbite's translation, or that the translation did not actually take place till after the accession of Jehoram to the throne (2 Chronicles 21:12 ; 2 Kings 8:16 )

Philosophists - Voltaire proposed to establish a colony of philosophists at Cleves, who, protected by the king of Prussia, might publish their opinions without dread or danger; and Frederic was disposed to take them under his protection, till he discovered that their opinions were anarchical as well as impious, when he threw them off, and even Wrote against them

David - The biblical book of Psalms contains many of the songs and poems he Wrote during his long and eventful career
Siricius, Bishop of Rome - The pope Wrote, exhorting him to support the Catholic faith and complaining of the recent ordination of one Agricius, who seems to have been suspected of heresy
Peter - Babylon, a chief seat of the dispersed Jews, was his head quarters when he Wrote 1 Peter 5:13, not Rome as some have argued. Mark (Colossians 4:10), Paul's helper at Rome, from whence he went to Colosse, was with Peter when he Wrote 1 Peter 5:13. All the authority of Acts and epistle to the Romans and 1 and 2 Peter is against Peter having been at Rome previous to Paul's first imprisonment, or during its two years' duration (otherwise he would have mentioned Peter in the epistles written from Rome, Ephesians, Colossians, Philemon, and Philippians), or during his second imprisonment when he Wrote to Timothy
Ephraim (4) the Syrian - He Wrote also on Repentance on the Dead and on Martyrs. Meanwhile he Wrote upon the devastation committed by the Persians the Maccabean martyrs the Life of Constantine and so on until the accession of Julian rudely disturbed his studies. 16) says that he Wrote three million lines, but a large proportion has perished
Philippians Epistle to the - Paul as he Wrote or who actually Wrote the letter, was directly addressed in this way. Indeed, the letter becomes much more intelligible when we regard it as answering questions and meeting a situation unfolded in an actual correspondence of recent date from Philippi, which was before the Apostle as he Wrote, and which may well have conditioned the order of his topics
John, Gospel of (Critical) - If, on the other hand, the writer was the beloved disciple, an eye-witness possessing a specially intimate knowledge of the mind and character of Jesus, we have an assurance that when, for example, he Wrote the opening sentences of the Gospel, he felt himself in touch not merely with current theological. He says that ‘John, the disciple of the Lord, who leaned upon His breast,’ Wrote it ‘while dwelling in Ephesus, the city of Asia’ (adv. 180), Wrote, among other works, a defence of Christianity, addressed to Autolycus, ‘a real or imaginary heathen friend of wide learning and high culture’ (Watkins). He became a disciple of Justin, during whose lifetime he Wrote the Oratio ad Graecos
Dioscorus (1), Patriarch of Alexandria - It was rumoured that, preaching at Antioch, he had practically taught Nestorianism; and Dioscorus, hearing this, Wrote to Domnus, bp. of Antioch, Theodoret's patriarch; whereupon Theodoret Wrote a denial ( Ep. Eutyches himself Wrote to Dioscorus, asking him "to examine his cause" (Liberat. 12), and Dioscorus, zealous against all anti-Cyrilline tendencies in theology, Wrote to the emperor, urging him to call a general council to review Flavian's judgment
Eusebius of Caesarea - Whatever his motives, he Wrote to Alexander, bp. The assembled bishops proposed Eusebius of Caesarea as his successor, and Wrote to the emperor on his behalf, but Eusebius declined the honour, alleging the rule of the Church, regarded as an "apostolic tradition," which forbade translations from one see to another; and Euphronius was elected. The empress Constantia, the sister of Constantine and wife of Licinius, Wrote to him on a matter of religious interest. He Wrote a Life of Eusebius, and apparently edited some of his works
Luke - ) the belief that the same Luke Wrote Acts and Gospel; (ii. ’ It now remains to discuss (1) the internal evidence supplied mainly by the Acts for and against the tradition which identifies the ‘historic Luke’ of the Epistles with the ‘literary Luke’ who Wrote the Gospel and Acts; (2) the sources used by the ‘literary Luke’; (3) his literary methods. This would be especially probable if, as the suggested use of Josephus implies, Luke Wrote his two treatises for Theophilus late in life (circa, about a
Isidorus Pelusiota, an Eminent Ascetic - Similarly he Wrote to Cyril: Put a stop to these contentions: do not involve the living Church in a private vengeance prosecuted out of duty to the dead, nor entail on her a perpetual division [3] under pretence of piety" (i. When Cyril was at the council of Ephesus endeavouring to crush Nestorianism, Isidore Wrote to him: "Prejudice does not see clearly; antipathy does not see at all. He Wrote a "little treatise" (λογίδιον) to prove that there was "no such thing as fate" (iii
Oracle - Eusebius has preserved some fragments of a philosopher, called OEnomaus; who, out of resentment for his having been so often fooled by the oracles, Wrote an ample confutation of all their impertinencies: "When we come to consult thee," says he to Apollo, "if thou seest what is in futurity, why dost thou use expressions that will not be understood? Dost thou not know, that they will not be understood? If thou dost, thou takest pleasure in abusing us; if thou dost not, be informed of us, and learn to speak more clearly. Father Balthus, a Jesuit, Wrote a treatise in defence of the fathers with regard to the origin of oracles; but without denying the imposture of the priests, often blended with the oracles. Lucan, who Wrote his "Pharsalia" in the reign of Nero, scarcely thirty years after our Lord's crucifixion, laments it as one of the greatest misfortunes of that age, that the Delphian oracle, which he represents as one of the choicest gifts of the gods, was become silent
Deuteronomy, the Book of - "...
Our Lord Himself must have had this prophecy in view in John 5:46, "Moses Wrote of Me. Moses tells us that all the words of this law he Wrote and gave to the Levites to be put in the side of the ark at the one time (Deuteronomy 31:9; 2 Chronicles 34:14

Henoticon, the - Zeno readily gave credence to these charges, and when it was further represented that, if he recognized Peter Mongus, the deposed patriarch, peace would be restored, he Wrote to Simplicius, stating his grounds for hesitating to sanction the appointment of John, and urging the restoration of Peter Mongus to put an end to the distractions of the church. He Wrote to the same effect to Simplicius, expressing a desire to be received into communion by him (Evagr
Joshua - Joshua Wrote the law on EBAL, and read it before the assembled people, half on that side and half. On the people expressing still their resolution to serve Jehovah, Joshua made a covenant between God and them; and Wrote the covenant and the words spoken on both sides in the law book of God, adding it to that written by Moses, and set up a stone as a memorial on the spot, under a terebinth tree by the sanctuary (or place hallowed to Jehovah by Abraham), and as a visible silent witness of their engagement

Samaritan Pentateuch - , Wrote the translation

Zephyrinus - If Hippolytus Wrote it, it is to be remembered that he was undoubtedly a divine of greater learning and repute than his rivals, and that he seems to have left a name without reproach behind him
Corinthians, First Epistle to the - Paul Wrote. Paul Wrote 2 Cor. It is suggested, however, that we should rather translate the phrase ‘last year,’ and that to one who used the Macedonian calendar, and who Wrote in the autumn, ‘last spring’ would also be ‘last year,’ for the new year began in September
Gospels - Mark Wrote his Gospel after the death of St. Mark’s work as his basis, and Wrote a longer Gospel, inserting from another source much of the Lord’s teaching as preserved at Jerusalem. Paul, Wrote both Acts and Gospel
Annunciation, the - Mark composed his Gospel, so that when he Wrote he was ignorant of the virgin birth. Luke received the information in writing, and that he Wrote the first two chapters with a document before him. Luke Wrote, and it may be doubted whether he could in imagination have thrown himself back to the surroundings and anticipations of Zacharias and Mary and Simeon
Papias, Bishop of Hierapolis - Concerning Mark he says, "This also the elder [1] said: Mark having become the interpreter of Peter Wrote accurately everything that he remembered of the things that were either said or done by Christ; but however not in order.

Word - There are yet extant of the works of Irenaeus, five books which he Wrote against heresies, one of the most authentic and valuable monuments of theological erudition. John Wrote his Gospel, at the desire of the bishops of Asia, against Cerinthus and other heretics, and chiefly against the doctrines of the Ebionites, then springing up, who said that Christ did not exist before he was born of Mary
Philippians, Epistle to - In support of this, appeal is made to Polycarp’s letter to the Philippians ( Philippians 3:2 ), where the words ‘who also Wrote you letters’ are held to prove that they had not then been united. Paul Wrote to the Philippians or have employed the term loosely; or perhaps he was referring to a collection of St

Pseudo-Chrysostomus - " Bathsheba was the seventh wife the literal David; but we learn spiritually that Christ is the spouse of seven churches for so the one church is designated on account of the seven Spirits by which it is sustained and accordingly both Paul and John Wrote to seven churches. When he Wrote, heathenism was not extinct, as appears from the end of Hom
Joshua, the Book of - Some Bible students think Joshua Wrote the book except for the death reports (Joshua 24:29-33 ); but the book gives no indication that Joshua had anything to do with writing the whole book, though he did write the laws on which the covenant renewal was based (Joshua 24:26 )

Moses - Respecting some of the books of scripture we know not who Wrote them; but that in no way touches their inspiration
Ephesians, Epistle to the - Following this was the Epistle he Wrote to them during the two years he was a prisoner at Rome
Judah - Hence, therefore, why may not the Shebeth of our Almighty Jehudah be supposed to convey an idea of his taking down the names of his people, whose names we know are "written in the Lamb's book of life?" (Revelation 21:27) Who but him Wrote those names in the book of life? Is not Jesus described, and by himself under the spirit of prophecy, as having "a tongue as the pen of a ready writer?" (Psalms 45:1) And if a tongue to speak, why not the hand to write of the things touching himself? Moreover, if none but Jesus was found worthy "to open the book, and to loose the seals thereof," which was seen by John in the hand of him that sat on the throne, who but him could be worthy to write the records in it? (Revelation 5:1-10)...

Unitarians - Priestly refers us to the "Theological Repository," "in which," he says, "I think I have shown that the Apostle Paul often reasons inconclusively; and, therefore, that he Wrote as any other person of his turn of mind or thinking, and in his situation, would have written, without any particular inspiration
Arius the Heresiarch - There appears, however, more foundation for the charge that Arius allowed the songs or odes contained in the book called Thaleia —which he Wrote after his first condemnation, in order to popularize his doctrine—to be set to tunes which had gross and infamous associations. Then he Wrote (the letters are extant) to Alexander of Constantinople and Eusebius of Nicomedia (where the emperor was then residing), detailing the errors into which Arius had fallen, and complaining of the danger to the Christian church arising from his heresy. On this point Eusebius Pamphili came safely to the front, and Wrote strongly against Marcellus, while the latter sturdily defended himself
Luke, Gospel According to - is later than, and an expansion of, Marcion, as the Tübingen school maintained from the evidence of Irenæus, Tertullian, and Epiphanius; from the exact similarity of style between the portions which are not in Marcion and those which are; and for other reasons]'>[5]; the Valentinians; and Heracleon, who Wrote a commentary upon it. The latter hypothesis is maintained by some on the ground that the writer is indebted to Josephus, who Wrote his Antiquities c Peter, the Epistles of - Peter Wrote from Babylon (1 Peter 5:13).

Persecution - The most violent promoters of it were Hierocles the philosopher, who Wrote against the Christian religion, and Galerius, whom Diocletian had declared Caesar. These teachers he strenuously and conscientiously opposed; he endeavoured to show the great importance of those to whom he Wrote being on their guard against them; and he evinced the most ardent zeal in resisting their insidious purposes: but he never, in the most distant manner, insinuated that they should be persecuted, adhering always to the maxim which he had laid down, that the weapons of a Christian's warfare are not carnal but spiritual
Letters - In these characters they Wrote all historical, political, and religious transactions.

Claudius - He also Wrote eight books of autobiography, and worked at Etrurian and Carthaginian history
Timothy, the First Epistle to - Paul's using "went" not "came," "when I went (poreuomenos ) into Macedonia" (1 Timothy 1:3), implies he was not there when he Wrote the First Epistle to Timothy

Athens - Plutarch, who Wrote half a century later, says in regard to Pericles’ public edifices: ‘In beauty each of them at once appeared venerable as soon as it was built; but even at the present day the work looks as fresh as ever, for they bloom with an eternal freshness which defies time, and seems to make the work instinct with an unfading spirit of youth’ (Pericles, xiii
Euphemius, Patriarch of Constantinople - Not obtaining an answer, he Wrote a second time
Colossians - Shortly after Paul Wrote Colossians, the entire Lycus Valley was devastated by an earthquake (about A. However, difficulty in recreating a balanced hymnic structure has convinced most that Paul rewrote portions of the hymn, if indeed he was not the author of the entire confession

Episcopacy - It is allowed that Ignatius in many places distinguishes between bishops and presbyters, and requires obedience to bishops from the whole church, but as he often supposes each of the churches to which he Wrote to meet in one place, and represents them as breaking one loaf, and surrounding one altar, and charges the bishop to know all his flock by name, it is most evident that he much speak of a parochial and not a diocesan bishop

David - And, though we cannot with precision point out all he Wrote, or describe the times and circumstances under which those were penned that we know did come from him, yet we delight to couple particular compositions with various crises of David's life—as Psalms 42:1-11 with his flight across the Jordan in Absalom's rebellion; 1 Samuel 16:21 with the bringing up of the ark to Jerusalem; Psalms 18:1-50 with David's deliverance from his enemies, and to see his emotions of praise, and hope, and repentance, and gratitude, and faith, at the wonderful dealings of God with him

This miraculous interposition of Providence is attested by many credible witnesses and historians; and, in particular, by Ammianus Marcellinus, a Heathen, and friend of Julian; Zemuch David, a Jew; Nazianzen, Chrysostom, Ambrose Ruffinus, Theodoret, Sozomen, and Socrates, who Wrote his account within fifty years after the transaction, and while many eye-witnesses of it were still living
