For I have observed that you are perfected in an immoveable faith, just as if you were nailed on the cross of the Lord Jesus Christ, both in the flesh and in the spirit, and are established in love in the blood of Christ, being fully persuaded unto our Lord that he was truly from the seed of David according to the flesh, son of God according to the will and power, truly born from a virgin, baptized by John in order that all justice might be fulfilled by him. But Jesus answered and said toward [John]: Permit it for now, for thus it is fitting for us to fulfill all justice. Then he permitted him.
Let no one be deceived.
Codex, Kingdom of Heaven, Rapture: Three Random Things
Both heavenly things and the glory of the angels and the princes, both seen and unseen, if they should not put faith in the blood of Christ, there will be judgment even for them. Let the one who has room for it make room for it. Let not place puff up. For the whole thing is faith and love, than which nothing should be judged better. For there are eunuchs who were born thus from the womb of the mother, and there are eunuchs who were made eunuchs by men, and there are eunuchs who made themselves eunuchs on account of the kingdom of the heavens.
Let the one who can make room for it make room for it. But learn from those who are of a different opinion unto the grace of Christ which has come to us, how opposed they are to the opinion of God. And why are you concerned concerning clothing? Learn from the lilies of the field, how they grow; they neither toil nor spin. I encourage you in the grace with which you are clothed to press forward in your race and to encourage all that they may be saved. Maintain your place in all carefulness, both fleshly and spiritual. Be mindful of unity, than which nothing is better. Endure all men, even as the Lord does you.
Hold up all men in love, just as you also are doing. Give yourself to unceasing prayers.
Ask for understanding more than what you have. Be awake, possessing a sleepless spirit. Speak to everyone each by each according to the enabling of God. Endure the diseases of all men, as a perfected athlete. Where the toil is great the reward is great. So that what was spoken through Isaiah the prophet might be fulfilled, saying: He himself took our sicknesses and endured our diseases.
Be as wise as the serpent in all things and as innocent as the dove forever. On this account you are fleshly and spiritual, so that you may deal tenderly with those things that appear before your face. And ask that the unseen things might be made apparent to you, so that you might lack nothing and might abound in every grace.
Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Be therefore as wise as serpents and as innocent as doves. Ignatius evinces no knowledge of the gospel of Mark, according to Jefford, and I have found nothing to contradict him. But there is one blatantly Lucan parallel in the Ignatian corpus , so I offer it also for the sake of completeness. And, when he came toward those around Peter, he said to them: Take, feel me and see that I am not a bodiless demon. And straightway they touched and had faith, being convinced by his flesh and by his blood.
On this account they even despised death, and were found over death. And after the resurrection he ate and drank with them as fleshly, although spiritually he was united to the father. Feel me and see that a spirit does not have flesh and bone just as you see that I have. And when he had said this he showed them his hands and feet.
And, while they were still lacking faith from the joy and wondering, he said to them: Do you have anything here to eat? And they gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate it before them. Did Ignatius know the gospel of Matthew?
