On John 8.19-20
WHAT is said briefly in the holy Gospel ought not to be explained briefly, so that what is heard may be understood. For the words of our Lord are few, but great, to be judged not by their number but by their weight; they should not be scorned because they are few, but should be examined precisely because they are great.
(2) You who were present yesterday heard, and we discussed, as well as we could, from what the Lord said: "You judge according to the flesh; I do not judge any one. But even if I do judge, my judgment is true, because I am not alone, but I and he who sent me, the Father. In your law it has been written that the testimony of two persons is true. I am the one who gives testimony of myself, and he who sent me, the Father, gives testimony of me." 1. From these words, as I said, a discourse was delivered to your ears and minds yesterday. When the Lord said these things, those who heard, "You judge according to the flesh," made clear what they heard. For they replied to the Lord who was speaking of God his Father, and they said, "Where is your father?" They understood the father of Christ in a flesh [and blood] sense because they judged the words of Christ according to the flesh. But he who was speaking was flesh openly, the Word secretly, man manifest, God hidden. They saw the clothing and scorned the one clothed; they scorned because they did not know. They did not know because they did not see. They did not see because they were blind. They were blind because they did not believe.
2. Let us also see, then, what the Lord answered to these____________________
