But he hath not one worde to proue, that our religion is of a later springe, then the Apostles, and therefore like an asse, he flyeth to their common stable, saying that Luther liued but yesterdaye, as though Luther were the firste author of our religion. Which if it be not as auncient as Christ and the Apostles, might easiely be confuted by the doctrine of Christ and the Apostles, contayned in the holye Scrip∣tures.
