Scripture Confirmations of New Church Doctrine [Brief Latin Title: Dicta Probantia]

1. The Apostles; Miracles

The apostles are named (Acts of the Apostles 1:13, 26).

Judas the traitor burst asunder in the midst, and all his bowels gushed out (Acts of the Apostles 1:16-19).

Many miracles and signs were done by the apostles (Acts of the Apostles 2:43). Peter and John healed the lame man sitting at the gate of the temple, therefore all were astonished, but when the priests heard them preaching about Jesus, they laid hands upon them, thrust them into prison, and afterwards having threatened them sent them away because of the people (Acts of the Apostles 3:1-20; 4). This miracle was done in the name of Jesus Christ (Acts of the Apostles 4:10, 30).

Many miracles done by the apostles (Acts of the Apostles 5:12, 5:15, 5:16), but yet they were put in prison by the high priest, and although they were led out thence by an angel miraculously, yet they were beaten, and warned not to preach concerning Jesus (verses 29-40).

Stephen also did great signs and miracles (Acts of the Apostles 6:8).

Miracles done by Philip (Acts of the Apostles 8:6, 7, 13).

Simon the sorcerer made himself great in Samaria, saying, here is the great power of God; but he was severely reproved by Peter (Acts of the Apostles 8:9, 10 seq., 20-24).

Miracles done by Peter, and also that he raised the dead to life (Acts of the Apostles 9:33, 34, 36-42).

The miracle of Paul, that a certain man was made blind (Acts of the Apostles 13:11); also others (Acts of the Apostles 19:11, 12; 20:9 seq.; 28:3 seq., 8).

Miracles done by the disciples, and with Paul (Acts of the Apostles 14:3, 8-10, 19, 20; 16:25, 26 seq.).

(References: 1 Peter 2:1-11, 2:9; Luke 11:15, 11:17, 11:19, 16:29-31; Mark 3:22, 13:22; Matthew 24:24-25; Romans 1:13, 1:16-19, 1:26, 3:1-20, 4:1, 4:10, 5:12, 5:15-16, 6:6-7, 6:8, 6:9-10, 6:13, 8:6-7, 8:9-10, 8:13, 8:20-24, 13:11, 14:3, 14:8-10, 14:19-20, 16:25-26)

Quod miraculum hoc factum sit in Nomine Jesu Christi, 4:10, 30.

Miracula multa ab Apostolis, Act. Apost. 5:12, 15, 16. sed usque a Sacerdote magno posuerunt eos in custodia, et tametsi inde ab angelo miraculose educti sunt, sed usque verberati sunt, et comminati ne praedicarent de Jesu, vers: 29 ad 40.

Stephanus etiam fecit signa magna et miracula, Act. Apost. 6:8.

1 Quid ergo amplius Judæo est ? aut quæ utilitas circumcisionis ?

2 Multum per omnem modum. Primum quidem quia credita sunt illis eloquia Dei.

3 Quid enim si quidam illorum non crediderunt ? numquid incredulitas illorum fidem Dei evacuabit ? Absit.

4 Est autem Deus verax : omnis autem homo mendax, sicut scriptum est : Ut justificeris in sermonibus tuis : et vincas cum judicaris.

5 Si autem iniquitas nostra justitiam Dei commendat, quid dicemus ? Numquid iniquus est Deus, qui infert iram ?

6 secundum hominem dico. Absit. Alioquin quomodo judicabit Deus hunc mundum ?

7 Si enim veritas Dei in meo mendacio abundavit in gloriam ipsius : quid adhuc et ego tamquam peccator judicor ?

8 et non (sicut blasphemamur, et sicut aiunt quidam nos dicere) faciamus mala ut veniant bona : quorum damnatio justa est.

9 Quid ergo ? præcellimus eos ? Nequaquam. Causati enim sumus Judæos et Græcos omnes sub peccato esse,

10 sicut scriptum est : Quia non est justus quisquam :

11 non est intelligens, non est requirens Deum.

12 Omnes declinaverunt, simul inutiles facti sunt : non est qui faciat bonum, non est usque ad unum.

13 Sepulchrum patens est guttur eorum, linguis suis dolose agebant : venenum aspidum sub labiis eorum :

14 quorum os maledictione, et amaritudine plenum est :

15 veloces pedes eorum ad effundendum sanguinem :

16 contritio et infelicitas in viis eorum :

17 et viam pacis non cognoverunt :

18 non est timor Dei ante oculos eorum.

19 Scimus autem quoniam quæcumque lex loquitur, iis, qui in lege sunt, loquitur : ut omne os obstruatur, et subditus fiat omnis mundus Deo :

20 quia ex operibus legis non justificabitur omnis caro coram illo. Per legem enim cognitio peccati.
