The question is proposed, how the Apostle calls Christ "the power
of God, and the wisdom of God." And an argument is raised,
whether the Father is not wisdom himself, but only the Father of
wisdom; or whether wisdom begat wisdom. But the answer to this is
deferred for a little, while the unity and equality of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost, are proved; and that we
ought to believe in a Trinity, not in a threefold (triplicem) God.
Lastly, that saying of hilary is explained, eternity in the Father,
appearance in the image, use in the gift.
