Chapter III.—The same continued.

The prophets also, when they speak as in the person of God, [saying,] “I am God, the first [of beings], and I am also the last,12241224    Literally, “after these things.” and besides Me there is no God,”12251225    Isa. xliv. 6. concerning the Father of the universe, do also speak of our Lord Jesus Christ. “A Son,” they say, has been given to us, on whose shoulder the government is from above; and His name is called the Angel of great counsel, Wonderful, Counsellor, the strong and mighty God.”12261226    Isa. ix. 6. And concerning His incarnation, “Behold, a virgin shall be with Child, and shall bring forth a Son; and they shall call his name Immanuel.”12271227    Isa. vii. 14; Matt. i. 23. And concerning the passion, “He was led as a sheep to the slaughter; and as a lamb before her shearers is dumb, I also was an innocent lamb led to be sacrificed.”12281228    Isa. liii. 7; Jer. xi. 19.
