Wisdom's Envoys


(1a) 2Q: Luke 11:49-51 = Matt 23:34-36
(1b) GNaz 17



(1a) 2Q: Luke 11:49-51 = Matt 23:34-36

/11:49/ Therefore also the Wisdom of God said, 'I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will kill and persecute,' /50/ so that this generation may be charged with the blood of all the prophets shed since the foundation of the world, /51/ from the blood of Abel to the blood of Zechariah, who perished between the altar and the sanctuary. Yes, I tell you, it will be charged against this generation.

= Matt 23:34-36
/23:34/ Therefore I send you prophets, sages, and scribes, some of whom you will kill and crucify, and some you will flog in your synagogues and pursue from town to town, /35/ so that upon you may come all the righteous blood shed on earth, from the blood of righteous Abel to the blood of Zechariah son of Barachiah, whom you murdered between the sanctuary and the altar. /36/ Truly I tell you, all this will come upon this generation.

Ch. 7 reported by Jerome, Commentary on Matthew 4 (commenting on Matt 23:35):

In the gospel that the Nazoreans use, we found "son of Joiada" written instead of "son of Baruch." [Complete Gospels]
