159. Matthew 16:17

The publican who was chosen by the Lord, he adduces for a proof that he was chosen as a stranger to the law and uninitiated in Judaism, by one who was an adversary to the law. The case of Peter escaped his memory, who, although he was a man of the law, was not only chosen by the Lord, but also obtained the testimony of possessing knowledge which was given to him by the Father. [Tertullian Adv Marc 4.11.1 KROYMANN Aem., CCL 1 (1954),(p.565, l.6) BP1]
