He was priest in rank and he was well versed in the holy books. And wherever he stayed, in a church or in a monastery or the shrine of a martyr, he used to secretly get up at night and break all the crosses. After the death of Sergius, Kaʿb the Scribe rose up and he changed the writing of Sergius Baḥīrā and he handed down another teaching to them.
