Chapter II.—The true doctrine respecting God and Christ.

For Moses, the faithful servant of God, when he said, “The Lord thy God is one Lord,” 1218 and thus proclaimed that there was only one God, did yet forthwith confess also our Lord when he said, “The Lord rained upon Sodom and Gomorrah fire and brimstone from the Lord.” 1219 And again, “And God 1220 said, Let Us make man after our image: and so God made man, after the image of God made He him.” 1221 And further “In the image of God made He man.” 1222 And that [the Son of God] was to be made man [Moses shows when] he says, “A prophet shall the Lord raise up unto you of your brethren, like unto me.” 1223
