Chapter 21.--The Second Passage Quoted by Victor.

On the same principle we treat the passage in which God says: |For my Spirit shall go forth from me; and I have created every breath.| Here the former clause, |My Spirit shall go forth from me, must be taken as referring to the Holy Ghost, of whom the Saviour similarly says, |He proceedeth from the Father.| But the other clause, |I have created every breath,| is undeniably spoken of each individual soul. Well; but God also creates the entire body of man; and, as nobody doubts, He makes the human body by the process of propagation: it is therefore, of course, still open to inquiry concerning the soul (since it is evidently God's work), whether He creates it as He does the body; by propagation, or by inbreathing, as He made the first soul.
