Chapter LII.—Other Sayings of Christ.

“Since, then, while the heaven and the earth still stand, sacrifices have passed away, and kingdoms, and prophecies among those who are born of woman, and such like, as not being ordinances of God; hence therefore He says, ‘Every plant which the heavenly Father has not planted shall be rooted up.’998998    Matt. xv. 13.  Wherefore He, being the true Prophet, said, ‘I am the gate of life;999999    John x. 9. he who entereth through me entereth into life,’ there being no other teaching able to save.  Wherefore also He cried, and said, ‘Come unto me, all who labour,’10001000    Matt. xi. 28. that is, who are seeking the truth, and not finding it; and again, ‘My sheep hear my voice;’10011001    John x. 3. and elsewhere, ‘Seek and find,’10021002    Matt. vii. 7. since the truth does not lie on the surface.
