“For because He knew that we should make a good use of our substance which we should possess by receiving it from another, He says, ’He that hath two coats let him impart to him that hath none, and he that hath meat let him do likewise.’” (iv. 30, 3.)
“For when He came to be baptized He had not yet completed His thirtieth year, but was beginning to be about thirty years of age; for thus Luke, who has mentioned His years, has expressed it.” (ii. 22, 5.)

John, i.

    “[John] thus commenced his teaching in the Gospel, ’In the beginning
    was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God,’” &c.
    (iii. 11, 1.)

    “He (St. John) expresses himself thus:  ’In the beginning was the
    Word,’” &c. (i. 8, 5.)

    “Thus saith the Scripture, ’By the word of the Lord were the heavens
    made,’ &c.  And again, ’All things were made by Him, and without Him
    was nothing made that was made.’” (i. 22, 1.)

    “For he styles Him ’A light which shineth in darkness, and which was
    not comprehended by it.’” (i. 8, 5.)

“And that we may not have to ask ’Of what God was the Word made flesh?’ He does Himself previously teach us, saying, ’There was a man sent from God whose name was John.  The same came as a witness that he might bear witness of that Light.  He was not that Light, but that he might testify of the Light.’” (iii. 11, 4.)

    “While the Gospel affirms plainly that by the Word, which was in the
    beginning with God, all things were made, which Word, he says, was
    made flesh and dwelt among us.” (iii. 11, 2.)

To John i. 14, “The Word was made flesh,” the references are absolutely innumerable.  Those I have given already will suffice.

“For this is the knowledge of salvation which was wanting to them, that of the Son of God, which John made known, saying, ’Behold the Lamb of God, who taketh away the sin of the world.  This is He of whom I said, After me cometh a Man Who was made before me, because He was prior to me.’” (iii. 10, 2.)
“By whom also Nathaniel, being taught, recognized Him; he to whom also the Lord bare witness that he was an Israelite indeed, in whom was no guile.  The Israelite recognized his King, therefore did he cry out to Him, ’Rabbi, Thou art the Son of God.  Thou art the King of Israel.’” (iii. 11, 6.)

John, ii.

    “But that wine was better which the Word made from water, on the
    moment, and simply for the use of those who had been called to the
    marriage.” (iii. 11, 5.)

    “As also the Lord speaks in reference to Himself, ’Destroy this
    temple, and in three days I will raise it up.’  He spake this,
    however, it is said, of the temple of His body.” (v. 6, 2.)
