This is a correction to my original post of 11-21-11. I've found the Latin text for St. Irenaeus 3,3,2. He does not use the gerundive form of "convenire" to express necessity (i.e., "must agree"). He uses the infinitive "necesse" and "est" to express "It is (or "has been" [starting in the past and continuing into the present]) necessary." I apologize for speaking off the top of my head to explain why the Latin dictionary entry for "convenire" (as brought up in a previous post) showed no reference to the word "must."
