Matthew 13:28, 30

Let me return, however, from this digression to discuss the priority of truth, and the comparative lateness of falsehood, deriving support for my argument even from that parable which puts in the first place the sowing by the Lord of the good seed of the wheat, but introduces at a later stage the adulteration of the crop by its enemy the devil with the useless weed of the wild oats. [Tertullian De praescriptionibus aduersus haereses omnes 31.1 REFOULE R.F., CCL 1 (1954), (p.212, l.3) BP1]
