AD 1849

John Chrysostom

AD 407

But that we write unto them that they abstain from pollutions of idols, and from fornication— (b) and yet they often insisted upon these points in discoursing to them — but, that he may seem also to honor the Law (he mentions), these also, speaking (however) not as from Moses but from the Apostles, and to make the commandments many, he has divided the one into two (saying), and from things strangled, and from blood.
