Ante-Nicene Fathers, Vol VIII:
Remains of the Second and Third Centuries.: Fragment VI

Early Church Fathers  Index     

VI.

Two Scholia on Genesis XXII. 133628

The Syriac and the Hebrew use the word “suspended,” 3629 as more clearly typifying the cross.

The word Sabek 3630 some have rendered remission3631 others upright3632 as if the meaning, agreeing with the popular belief, were—a goat walking erect up to a bush, and there standing erect caught by his horns, so as to be a plain type of the cross.  For this reason it is not translated, because the single Hebrew word signifies in other languages 3633 many things.  To those, however, who ask it is proper to give an answer, and to say that Sabek denotes lifted up3634
