13). Following up on this, Philip then concludes the debate with the suffering servant passages from the Psalms and Isaiah, after which Aristarchos responds, “Philip, this one is called Jesus and Messiah. 15). It is, therefore, Aristarchos who declares Jesus the Messiah, quickly conceding the truth of Philip’s teaching by citing proof-texts regarding the truth of Christ. The disputation between Aristarchos and Philip reveals that Aristarchos, and to a lesser extent his Jewish compatriots in the crowd, knows that the Scriptures point to the importance and role of Jesus,13 and this reveals their hard-heartedness regarding the Christian message.

(2 Cor 5:2–4) The motif of the exchange of garments as reflecting change of status is strong in the Syrian exegetical tradition. 17 In Gos. Thom. 22, the Gospel of the Egyptians, and 2 Clem.
