1), a passage to which we shall return. Irenaeus continues his account as follows (Haer. 4): Therefore those who know these things have been set free from the rulers who made the world. It is not right to confess him who was crucified, but him who came in the form of a man and was supposed to have been crucified and was called Jesus and was sent by the Father in order by this dispensation to undo the works of the creators of the world. Thus (he says) if anyone confesses the crucified, he is still a slave, and under the power of those who made the bodies; he who denies (him) has been set free from them, and knows the (saving) dispensation made by the unoriginate Father.
