Notes from Abrose on the Doctrine of the Trinity

For “Son of God” is against Ebion, “Son of David,” is against the Manichees; “Son of God” is against Photinus, “Son of David” is against Marcion; “Son of God” is against Paul of Samosata, “Son of David” is against Valentinus; “Son of God” is against Arius and Sabellius, the inheritors of heathen errors. “Lord of David” is against the Jews, who beholding the Son of God in the flesh, in impious madness believed Him to be only man.
