Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol I:
IRENÆUS: XX.

Early Church Fathers  Index     

XX.

“And 4829 he laid his hands upon him.” 4830 The countenance of Joshua was also glorified by the imposition of the hands of Moses, but not to the same degree [as that of Moses]. Inasmuch, then, as he had obtained a certain degree of grace, [the Lord] said, “And thou shall confer upon him of thy glory.” 4831 For [in this case] the thing given does not cease to belong to the giver.


Footnotes

572:4829

Massuet seems to more than doubt the genuineness of this fragment and the next, and would ascribe them to the pen of Apollinaris, bishop of Hierapolis in Phrygia, a contemporary of Irenæus. Harvey passes over these two fragments.

572:4830

Num. xxvii. 23.

572:4831

Num. xxvii. 20.


Next: XXI.
