1598 This passage more nearly resembles Zech. xi. 12 and 13 than anything in Jeremiah, although the transaction in Jer. xxxii. 7-15 is noted by the commentators, as referred to. Tertullian had good reason for mentioning Jeremiah and not Zechariah, because the apostle whom he refers to (Matt. xxvii. 3-10) had distinctly attributed the prophecy to Jeremiah ("Jeremy the prophet," ver. 9). This is not the plcae to do more than emrely refer to the voluminous controversy which has arisen from the apostle's mention of Jeremiah instead of Zechariah. It is enough to remark that Tertullian's argument is unaffected by the discrepancy in the name of the particular prophet. On all hands the prophecy is admitted, and this at once satisifes our author's argument. For the ms. evidence in favour of the unquestionably correct reading, to/te e0plhrw/qh to\ r9hqe\n dia\ 9Ieremi/ou tou\ profh/tou, k.t.l., the reader is referred to Dr. Tregelles' Critical Greek Testament, in loc.; only to the convincing amount of evidence collected by the very leraned editor must now be added the subsequently obtained authority of Tischendorf's Codex Sinaiticus.

1599 Appretiati vel honorati. There is nothing in the original or the Septuagint to meet the second word honorati, which may refer to the "honorarium," or "fee paid on admission to a post of honour,"-a term of Roman law, and referred to by Tertullian himself.

1600 Luke xxii. 19. [See Jewell's Challenge, p. 266, supra.]

1601 Corpus veritatis: meant as a thrust against Marcion's Docetism.

1602 Ad vanitatem Marcionis. [Note 9, p. 289.]

1603 Peponem. In his De Anima, c. xxxii., he uses this word in strong irony: "Cur non magis et pepo, tam insulsus."

1604 [This text, imperfectly quoted in the original, is fulled out by Dr. Holmes.]

1605 So the Septuagint in Jer. xi. 19, Cu/lon ei0j to\n a!rton au0tou= (A.V. "Let us destroy the tree with the fruit"). See above, book iii. chap. xix. p. 337.

1606 Illuminator antiquitatum. This general phrase includes typical ordinances under the law, as well as the sayings of the prophets.

1613 This is an argumentum ad hominem against Marcion for his cavil, which was considered above in book ii. chap. v.-viii. p. 300.

1614 Obstitit peccaturo.

1615 Si ignorabat. One would have expected "si non ignorabat," like the "si sciebat" of the next step in the argument.

1616 The original of this not very clear sentence is: "Nam et Petrum praesumptorie aliquid eloctum negationi potius destinando zeloten deum tibi ostendit."

1617 Luke xxii. 34 and 54-62.

1618 Luke xxii. 47-49.

1619 Isa. xxix. 13.

1620 Luke xxii. 66, 67.

1621 Oehler's admirable edition is also carefully printed for the most part, but surely his quaesisset must here be quaesissent.

1622 Luke xxii. 67.

1623 Supersedit ostendere.

1624 i.e., not to answer that question of theirs. This seems to be the force of the perfect tense, "occultasse se."

1625 He makes Jesus stretch forth His hand, porrigens manum inquit.

1631 Or does he suppose that they repeated this same question twice? His words are, "dum rursus interrogant."

1634 Ut, quia...sic senserunt.
