Scho. First, Christ, as he had descended to the earth, as into banishment for our sake; so when he went up into heaven, his Father's inheritance, he entered in our name, making us a way and entry thither, and opening us the gate of heaven, which was before shut against us for sin : for sith Christ, our head, hath carried with him our flesh into heaven, he, so mighty and loving a head, will not leave us for ever in eartb, that are members of his body. Moreover he being present in the sight of God, and commending us unto him, and making intercession for us, is the patron of our cause, who being our Advocate, our matter shall not quail.

REPORMATIO LEGUM, &c.

Of the Holy Trinity and the Catholic Faith.

of the two Natures of Christ after his Resurrection. Chap. 4.

It is to be believed also that our Lord Jesus Christ, even after his resurrection subsisted in a twofold nature: the divine, indeed, is immense, uncircumscribed, and infinite, which is every where and fills all things : but the human is finite and limited by the form and boundaries of the human body, with which, after he had purged our sins, he ascended into heaven, and

there so sitteth at the right-hand of the Father as that he is not every where ; for it is necessary that he should remain in heaven until the time of the restitution of all things, when he shall come to judge the quick and the dead that he may render to every one according to his works.
