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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XLVII.—Simon’s Vaunt.

“I am the first power, who am always, and without beginning. 699   But having entered the womb of Rachel, I was born of her as a man, that I might be visible to men.  I have flown through the air; I have been mixed with fire, and been made one body with it; I have made statues to move; I have animated lifeless things; I have made stones bread; I have flown from mountain to mountain; I have moved from place to place, upheld by angels’ hands, and have lighted on the earth.  Not only have I done these things; but even now I am able to do them, that by facts I may prove to all, that I am the Son of God, enduring to eternity, and that I can make those who believe on me endure in like manner for ever.  But your words are all vain; nor can you perform any real works such as I have now mentioned, p. 127 as he also who sent you is a magician, who yet could not deliver himself from the suffering of the cross.”
