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

Early Church Fathers  Index     

Chapter XXI.—The Eating of the Forbidden Fruit Denied.

“He himself being the only true prophet, fittingly gave names to each animal, according to the merits of its nature, as having made it.  For if he gave a name to any one, that was also the name of that which was made, being given by him who made it. 965   How, then, had he still need to partake of a tree, that he might know what is good and what is evil, if he was commanded not to eat of it?  But this senseless men believe, who think that a reasonless beast was more powerful than the God who made these things.
