ther he red: when supper was done, Christ toke bread, gaue thankes, & brake it, and gaue to his disciples, and said: take, eate, this is my bodye. Then they spake bothe at once, here he sayth it is his body.

wood. Master Gage, I doe not deny but he calleth it his body, but not before eating, as I said before. Wherfore I pray you marke þe wordes. Christ said, take, eat. I pray you sir mark these words that he said. Take & eate, & then he said it was his body. So you see, eating goeth before. For he said eate, this is my body: so according to the very worde, I doe beleue it is hys body, which wordes made them both astonied.

[Back to Top]

Lang. Why, then by your saying Iudas eate not the body of christ. How say you? did he not?

wood. Nay, I aske you. Did he?

Lang. I aske you.

wood. And I aske you.

Lang. And I aske you.

wood. Mary and I aske you. And I bidde you aunswer if you dare for your life. For whatsoeuer you answer, vnless you say as I haue said you wil damne your owne soule. For maister Gage, I protest before god, I would you should do as wel as mine own soule & body: and it lamenteth my heart to se how you be deceiued wt them: they be deceiuers all the sort of them. He cānot answer to this, but either he must proue Iudas to be saued, or els he must proue that it is no body before it be receiued in faith, as you shall wel perceiue by gods helpe, if he dare to aunswere the question.

[Back to Top]

Gage. Yes, I dare say he dareth. What? you nede not to threaten him so.

vvood. Then let him aunswer if he can.

Then he said he knew what I would saie to him: therfore he was much in doubt to answer the question.

Lang. Maister Gage, I will tell you in youre eare what wordes he will aunswer me, or euer I speake to him.

vvood. Then he tolde maister Gage a tale in his eare, and saide.

Lang. I haue tolde maister Gage what you wil say.

Gage. Yea, and I wil tell the truthe for bothe parties.

vvood. Wel, how say you? did Iudas eate the body of Christ or not?

Lang. Yea, I say Iudas did eate the bodye of Christ.

vvood. Then it must nedes followe, that Iudas hath euerlasting life. For Christ saith in þe 6. of Iohn, þt who so eateth my flesh, & drinketh my bloud, hath eternal life, and I wil raise him vp at the last day. If Iudas did eate Christes body, I am sure you cannot deny but that he did both eate his flesh, & drink his bloud, & then is Iudas saued by Christes owne wordes. Therfore now you are compelled to saye that it was

[Back to Top]

not Christes body, or els that Iudas is saued.

Gage. Surely these be the very words that. M. D. told me in mine eare, þt you wold say to him

vvood. well, let vs see, how well he cā auoide this argument.

Lang. Iudas is damned, and yet he eate the body of Christ. But he eate it vnworthely, and therefore he is damned.

vvood. where finde you that Iudas did eate the body of Christ vnworthelye?

Lang. They be sainct Paules woords, in the first to the Corinth, the. xi. Chap.

wood. M. Gage I desire you for gods sake mark my wordes wel what I say. If s. Paule speak any such words ther, or at any other place, or if there be any such words writtē in al the whole Bible, þt euer any man eate the body of god vnworthely, then saye that I am the falsest mā þt euer you heard speake with tong. But in dede these be the wordes of sainct Paule, that whoso eateth of this bread, and drinketh of this cup vnworthely, eateth and drinketh his own damnation, because he maketh no difference of the lordes bodye, that is, because he presumeth to eate the sacrament of the Lordes bodye, with out faith, making no difference betwixt the sacrament and other bread and drinke: that is. S. Paules meaning, and not that any man dothe or can eate the body of Christ vnworthely. For whosoeuer eateth the body of Christ, hath euer lasting life, as is aforesaid in the. 6. of Iohn. with whiche wordes one came for thē to come to diner in all the haste.

Gage. I am sory. I would faine here more of this talke. But we shall haue an other day wel inough.

Lang. Nay maister Gage, I will neuer talke with him more. For he is the vnreasonablest man that euer I talked with in all my life.

vvood. Then maister Gage put of his cap & desired him that he would not refuse to talke wt me, and that it might not bee greuous to him. For he said: we will seke al the meanes possible to make him an honest man, and to keepe him from burning, if we coulde. For if my brother and I had not bene, he had bene burned or this tyme. Then there was great curtesy betwixte them.

[Back to Top]

Lang. Sir, for your sake, and for my master your brothers sake, and for his fathers sake, & other of his frēds sakes, that haue spoken to me many times with weping teares, I will do the best to him that I can, but for no loue nor fauor that I beare to him, I tell you truth.

Gage. Woodman, you heare what master. D. saith. when will you come againe?

vvood. Euen when you wil send for me. For I am a prisoner, and cānot come whē I would. Or if I should desire to come, it wil cost me money, and I haue none to geue. But if you send for me, it shall cost me none.
