This comment is attributed in Latin to Justus Jonas but never with a source. Anyone have ideas where he said this or where the Latin comes from if he said it originally in German?
Iste vir potuit cum Deo quicquid voluit: that man could have of God whatever he would.

The earliest I've found is Thomas Case. “He that writes Luthers life saith thus of him, Vir iste potuit quod voluit, That man could doe what he would with God, it was but aske and have.” I could not find anything like this in the English equivalent in the old English text of the life by Jonas. So while it may be a saying by Jonas it may be another biography. Thomas Case, Gods waiting to be gracious unto His people together with Englands encouragements and cautions to wait on God (1642), 81.
