Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Pseudo-Clementine Literature.: Chapter LXVIII

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter LXVIII.—The Rule of Faith.

“These sayings of Gamaliel did not much please Caiaphas; and holding him in suspicion, as it seemed, he began to insinuate himself cunningly into the discussions:  for, smiling at what Gamaliel had said, the chief of the priests asked of James, the chief of the bishops, 594 that the discourse concerning Christ should not be drawn but from the Scriptures; ‘that we may know,’ said he, ‘whether Jesus be the very Christ or no.’  Then said James, ‘We must first inquire from what Scriptures we are especially to derive our discussion.’  Then he, with difficulty, at length overcome by reason, answered, that it must be derived from the law; and afterwards he made mention also of the prophets.”
