Origen Against Celsus by Origen

Chapter XXIX. In the preceding pages we have already spoken of this pointà

In the preceding pages we have already spoken of this point, viz., the prediction that there were to be two advents of Christ to the human race, so that it is not necessary for us to reply to the objection, supposed to be urged by a Jew, that |the prophets declare the coming one to be a mighty potentate, Lord of all nations and armies.| But it is in the spirit of a Jew, I think, and in keeping with their bitter animosity, and baseless and even improbable calumnies against Jesus, that he adds: |Nor did the prophets predict such a pestilence.| For neither Jews, nor Celsus, nor any other, can bring any argument to prove that a pestilence converts men from the practice of evil to a life which is according to nature, and distinguished by temperance and other virtues.
