of faith amongst the Jews, so to believe in one God, as not to join the Son or HOLY Ghost with Him, for what difference will there be except that between them and us? What is the business of the Gospel, or what is the substance of the New Testament, which acknowledge the Law and the Prophets until John, if from thence it do not appear that the FATHER, the Son, and the Spirit, who are believed to be THREE, yet constitute but one God?”—See Adv.
