“From him also [was descended] our Lord Jesus Christ according to the flesh.17 From him [arose] kings, princes, and rulers of the race of Judah. Nor are his other tribes in small glory,18 inasmuch as God had promised, ‘Thy seed shall be as the stars of heaven.’19 All these, therefore, were highly honoured, and made great, not for their own sake, or for their own works, or for the righteousness which they wrought, but through the operation of His will. And we, too, being called by His will20 in Christ Jesus, are not justified by ourselves, nor by our own wisdom, or understanding, or godliness, or works which we have wrought in holiness of heart; but by that faith through which, from the beginning, Almighty God has justified all men; to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.” (Page 238)
“Writing in a.d. 125, or even twenty years later, Aristides becomes an important witness as to the nature of early Christianity. His Apology contains no express quotation from Scripture; but the Emperor is referred for information to a gospel which is written. Various echoes of New Testament expressions will at once be recognized; and ‘the language-moulding power of Christianity’ is discernible in the new meaning given to various classical words.” (Page 261)
“This is clear to you, O King, that there are four classes of men in this world:—Barbarians and Greeks, Jews and Christians.” (Page 264)
“Aristides has no trace of ill-feeling to the Jews; no reference to the Logos doctrine, nor to the distinctive ideas of the Apostle Paul; he has no gnosticism or heresy to denounce, and he makes no appeal to miracle and prophecy. Christianity, in his view, is worthy of a philosophic emperor because it is eminently reasonable, and gives an impulse and power to live a good life. On the whole, Aristides represents that type of Christian practice which is found in the Teaching of the Twelve Apostles; and to this he adds a simple Christian philosophy which may be compared with that of St. Paul at Athens.” (Page 261)
