Iësus, The sonne of God, and of the most pure virgin Marye. Although in the common translation of the byble in latine, it seemeth there were diuers other Iewes so named: yet in the Hebrne tongue, as Reucline writcth in his booke De verbo mirifico, there was some diuersitie in the letters of the name of our Sauiour, from them that were in the othercalled lësus. For in his glorious and wonderfull name, were the vowels called Terragrammaton with one consonant, called Schin, which is one S of the Hehrues, wherein was a misticall or hidde signification of his diuinitie, although the whole name be interpreted Sauiour: who being equall in dininitie with God the father, begottÊ of him before the worlde was created, and without tyme, willingly for the redemption of man descended into the bodye of the blessed virgin, and was conceyued in hir by the holye Ghost the thirde person in Godheade, and of hir borne the 3962. yeare after the creation of the woride: and being God and man, lined here xxxii. yeares in forme of pouertie, and then being betrayed by his owne disciple, was by the Iewes (his owne people) moste cruelly nayled on the crosse, the yeare after the creation of the worlde 3994.
