1 Tesalonicenses 1:9
9 Pues ellos mismos cuentan de nosotros la buena recepción que tuvimos por parte de ustedes, y cómo ustedes se convirtieron de los ídolos a Dios para servir al Dios vivo y verdadero
Tertullian An Answer to the Jews
, quitting the idols which formerly it used slavishly to serve, has been converted to the same God from whom Israel, as we have above related, had departed.
Tertullian On the Resurrection of the Flesh
For we read: "How ye turned from idols to serve the living and true God, and to wait for His Son from heaven, whom He raised from the dead, even Jesus."
