Admonition, Admonish - Nouthesia is "the Training by word," whether of encouragement, or, if necessary, by reproof or remonstrance.

It is thus distinguished from paideuo, "to correct by discipline, to Train by act," Hebrews 12:6 ; cp

Gos'Pels - John, "the beloved disciple," wrote the FOURTH GOSPEL for the Christian, to cherish and Train those who have entered the new kingdom of Christ, into the highest spiritual life
Canticles - Solomon, therefore, in celebrating the circumstances of his marriage, was naturally led, by a Train of correspondent reflections, to consider that spiritual connection which it was often employed to symbolize; and the idea must have been the more forcibly suggested to him, as he was at this period preparing to build a temple to God, and thereby to furnish a visible representation of the Hebrew church. But though the work be certainly an allegorical representation, many learned men, in an unrestrained eagerness to explain the song, even in its minutest and most obscure particulars, have too far indulged their imaginations; and, by endeavouring too nicely to reconcile the literal with the spiritual sense, have been led beyond the boundaries which a reverence for the sacred Scriptures should ever prescribe

After obtaining a complete victory over all his enemies, he ascended in splendour and triumph into his Father's presence on the clouds of heaven, the chariots of the Most High, thousands of holy angels attending in his Train; he led the devil and all his angels, together with sin, the world, and death, as his spoils of war, and captives in chains, and exposed them to open contempt and shame, in the view of all his angelic attendants, triumphing like a glorious conqueror over them, in virtue of his cross, upon which he made complete satisfaction for sin, and by his own strength, without the assistance of any creature, destroyed him that had the power of death, that is, the devil

Bar-Jesus - The presence of an influential exponent of such a current religious and philosophical system in the Train of the comites of a Roman governor was quite natural; nor is there any need to suppose that Sergius Paulus (who was ‘a man of understanding’) was dominated by the Magian in any other sense than that Bar-Jesus had considerable influence and credit with his patron-on influence he was able to turn to his own private advantage

Manaen (2) - What passed between the foster-brothers after John’s murder? Was Manaen a silent or a protesting spectator when Jesus was mocked?

Did he remain in the Train of his foster-brother till the latter left for Rome in a

Culdees - While they seem to have reckoned something of this kind necessary for the preservation of order, and for the attainment of habits of diligence, their great design was, by the instruction of those committed to their charge, to Train them up for the work of the ministry.

Matthew - Matthew mentioned as its author, by Irenaeus, Origen, Athanasius, Cyril, Epiphanius, Jerom, Chrysostom, and a long Train of subsequent writers
Necessitarians - But then this is a wrong application of the term necessity, which properly implies such a constraint upon actions, exercised ab extra, as renders choice or will impossible. Again: the obedience of Christ unto death was necessary, that is to say, unless he had died, guilty man could not have been forgiven; but this could not make the act of the Jews who put him to death a necessary act, that is to say, a forced and constrained one; nor did this necessity affect the act of Christ himself, who acted voluntarily, and might have left man without salvation. ...
The doctrine of necessity is nearly connected with that of predestination, which, of late years, has assumed a form very different from that which it formerly possessed: for, instead of being considered as a point to be determined almost entirely by the sacred writings, it has, in the hands of a number of able writers, in a great measure resolved itself into a question of natural religion, under the head of the philosophical liberty or necessity of the will; or, whether all human actions are, or are not, necessarily determined by motives arising from the character which God has impressed on our minds, and the Train of circumstances amidst which his providence has placed us? The Calvinistic doctrine of predestination is, that "God, for his own glory, hath foreordained whatsoever comes to pass
Run - ) To travel; to make progress; to be moved by mechanical means; to go; as, the steamboat runs regularly to Albany; the Train runs to Chicago
Cloth, Clothing - A long Train or veil adorned women of high social stature (Isaiah 47:2 )
Miracles - To pronounce, therefore, a miracle to be false, because it is different from experience, is only to conclude against its general existence from the very circumstance which constitutes its particular nature; for if it were not different from experience, where would be its singularity? or what particular proof could be drawn from it, if it happened according to the ordinary Train of human events, or was included in the operation of the general laws of nature? We grant that it does differ from experience; but we do not presume to make our experience the standard of the divine conduct. But he who allows of a First Cause in itself perfect and intelligent, abstractedly from those effects which his wisdom and power have produced, must at the same time allow that this cause can be under no such restraints as to be debarred the liberty of controlling its laws as often as it sees fit. ...
Miracles may be classed under two heads: those which consist in a Train or combination of events, which distinguish themselves from the ordinary arrangements of Providence; and those particular operations which are performed by instruments and agents incompetent to effect them without a preternatural power. ) It may now be observed, that the institutions of the law and the Gospel may not only appeal for their confirmation to a Train of events which, taken in a general and combined view, point out an extraordinary designation, and vindicate their claim to a divine authority; but also to a number of particular operations which, considered distinctly, or in a separate and detached light, evidently display a supernatural power, immediately exerted on the occasion. That they should assert what they knew to be false; that they should publish it with so much ardour; that they should risk every thing dear to humanity, in order to maintain it; and at last submit to death, in order to attest their persuasion of its truth in those moments when imposture usually drops its mask, and enthusiasm loses its confidence; that they should act thus in opposition to every dictate of common sense, and every principle of common honesty, every restraint of shame, and every impulse of selfishness, is a phenomenon not less irreconcilable to the moral state of things than miracles are to the natural constitution of the world
Mission - In particular they should Train those who show signs of being gifted for the more important ministries of the church (Acts 20:2-3; see GIFTS OF THE SPIRIT)
Septuagint - A Train was laid which only needed the Divine spark to burst into flame
Covenant - Yet the Train of argument, where διαθηκη occurs, generally appears to proceed upon its meaning a covenant; and therefore, although, when we delineate the nature of the Gospel, the beautiful idea of its being a testament, is not to be lost sight of, yet we are to remember that the word testament, which we read in the Gospels and Epistles, is the translation of a word which the sense requires to be rendered covenant
Eagle - Hence by degrees he soars aloft, and now he mourns to the starry heaven, and swiftly urges his rapid flight through the air, sweeping widely over space, and in his gyrations bearing his offspring to and fro, teaches them...

Draw - To produce to bring, as an agent or efficient cause usually followed by a modifying word as, piety draws down blessings crimes draw down vengeance vice draws on us many temporal evils war draws after it a Train of calamities
Joy - is the classical passage for this, but the same Train of thought meets us in a number of other Pauline passages, and occasionally elsewhere, sometimes in pointedly paradoxical formulation (Acts 5:41, Colossians 1:11, 1 Thessalonians 1:6, Hebrews 10:34, James 1:2, 1 Peter 4:13)

Dead, the - Reverent burial is given, the funeral Train following the body borne uncoffined upon a bier (Luke 7:11-13)
Judgment - Nothing of terror or magnificence hitherto beheld,—no glory of the rising sun after a night of darkness and of storm,—no convulsions of the earth,—no wide irruption of waters,—no flaming comet dragging its burning Train over half the heaven, can convey to us an adequate conception of that day of terrible brightness and irresistible devastation
Imitation - We may well recoil from the old vulgar Train of thought described by M‘Leod Campbell: ‘He suffered—I shall not suffer’; but God forbid we should dream that we share, in all respects and for every purpose, the lot of Christ
Polytheism - Be this as it may, it is easy to conceive that the members of the first colonies would quickly lose many of the arts and much of the science which perhaps prevailed in the parent state; and that, fatigued with the contemplation of intellectual objects, they would relieve their overstrained faculties by attributing to the Deity a place of abode, if not a human form. When men had once got into this Train, their gods would multiply upon them with wonderful rapidity
Arms - This afterward became so useful a weapon, that care was taken to Train up the Hebrew youth to it betimes
Shepherds - The patriarchal shepherds, rich in flocks and herds, in silver and gold, and attended by a numerous Train of servants purchased with their money, or hired from the neighbouring towns and villages, acknowledge no civil superior; they held the rank, and exercised the rights, of sovereign princes; they concluded alliances with the kings in whose territories they tended their flocks; they made peace or war with the surrounding states; and, in fine, they wanted nothing of sovereign authority but the name. Hence the custom so prevalent among the ancients, of distinguishing the office and duties of their kings and princes, by terms borrowed from the pastoral life: Agamemnon, shepherd of the people, ‘Αγαμεμνονα ποιμενα λαων , is a phrase frequently used in the strains of Homer
New Moon - The fixed idea that every month must begin with the appearance of the new moon brought endless difficulties in its Train. 123), ‘the ceremonial distinctions do not appear to be condemned in themselves: the Colossians are simply warned in a strain hardly different from that of Romans 14 not to allow anyone to “judge” them in such
Esther - ...
The hand of Providence is to be traced palpably in the overruling of the king's reckless feastings and wanton deposing of Vashti because she shrank from violating her own self respect, to laying the Train for His appointed instrument, Esther's elevation; in Mordecai's saving the king's life from the two would-be assassins, and the recording of the fact in the royal chronicles, preparing the way for his receiving the royal honors which his enemy designed for himself; in Haman's casting Pur, the lot, for an auspicious day for destroying the Jews, and the result being, by God's providence which counterworked his appeal to chance, that the feast of Purlin is perpetually kept to commemorate the Jews' preservation and his destruction; in Esther's patriotic venture before the king after previous fasting three days, and God's interposing to incline the king's heart to hold out to her the golden scepter, ensuring to her at once life and her request (Proverbs 21:1); in Haman's pride at being invited to the queen's banquet and his preparing the gallows for Haman, and Providence, the very night before it, withdrawing sleep from the king so that the chronicles were read for his pleasure, and Mordecai's service was thus brought to his remembrance, so that when Haman came to solicit that Mordecai should be hanged the king met him with the question, "What shall be done unto the man whom the king delighteth to honor?"...
Then, in Haman supposing himself to be the object of honor, and suggesting the highest royal honors (such as Joseph had from the Egyptian king, Genesis 41:43), and thus unwittingly being constrained with his own voice and hand to glorify him whom he had meant to destroy; then in the denouement at the queen's banquet, and Haman's execution on the very gallows he erected for Haman (Psalms 7:14-16); and the consequent preservation from extinction of the holy race of whom Messiah must spring according to prophecy, and of whom Isaiah (Isaiah 54:17) writes, "no weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper, and every tongue that shall rise against thee thou shalt condemn
Violence - ’ Is there necessarily any inconsistency, however? May we not have here one of those passages where by a slight change in the expression, by a turning of the coin, as it were, a new and complementary truth is conveyed? Would there be any inconsistency if one were to say ‘the Train is advancing quickly, and those who are quick succeed in entering it’? On the other hand, the translation of the Authorized and Revised Versions is open to the charge of being tautological. ‘every man is constrained by the gospel,’ taking βιάζεται as Passive)
Balaam - But after Balaam's vain effort to curse, and God's constraining him to bless, Israel, "he went and returned to his place" (Numbers 24:14; Numbers 24:25). Like Judas and Ahithophel, Balaam set in motion the Train of events which entailed his own destruction
the Unprofitable Servant - Their Master was teaching and Training the twelve by everything that happened every day to Him and to them. In order to teach and to Train the twelve for their fast-coming work, their Master found tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and this great lesson in Bartholomew's ploughman-waiter
Imagination - It must be simple, as it was meant to become current not amongst scholars, disciplined in the use of complicated Trains of thought, well used to abstract lines of reasoning, and capable of retaining these in their memory for a long time, but amongst the common crowd of listeners who had had only an elementary education, and were incapable of giving a close and sustained attention to any Train of thought. Paul’s involved literary style, full as it is of technical terms, long sentences, and abstract Trains of reasoning, could not possibly have served as the vehicle of a spoken Gospel, though, as a supplementary commentary and exposition of the truths enshrined in that Gospel, it is admirably adapted for its purpose; and the same is true, with qualifications, of the other NT writers. Unique as are many of the qualities that belong to Christ as a preacher, and making due allowance for the contrast between the Oriental environment in which He lived and that of our own day, there is nothing that more needs to be built into our Training of young preachers than a close study of the method of the Master with a view to adapt it to our own day and circumstances
Atonement - If we can get our ideas, as taught of God as to the truth, into the Train of Jewish thought, there is no difficulty in the al
Cross, Crucifixion - In addition the cross “disarmed” the demonic “powers” and forged the final triumph over Satan and his hordes, forcing those spiritual forces to follow his Train in a victory procession (Colossians 2:15 NIV)

Last Day(s), Latter Days, Last Times - That set in motion the Train of events that would bring about the salvation of sinners and eventually see the setting up of God's kingdom, as Revelation makes so clear
Creation - This Train of reasoning would lead us to conclude that Ovid, and indeed the whole Heathen world, derived their notions respecting the creation, and the early history of mankind, from the sacred Scriptures: and it shows how deficient their own resources were, when the pride of philosophy was forced to borrow from those whom it affected to despise
Take - Some bright genius can take in a long Train of propositions
Hieronymus, Eusebius (Jerome) Saint - Rufinus went to the East in the Train of Melania. It is certain, however, that pope Damasus desired his presence in Rome at the council of 382, which reviewed the Acts of that council, and that he went in the Train of bps. Epiphanius, with whom Jerome now came to Rome, had been Trained by the hermits HILARION and HESYCHAS; he was, with Paulinus, the guest of the wealthy and noble Paula (cviii

Acts - At the same time, however, changes and expansion put a serious strain on the fellowship as the church tried to seek Christ's will (Acts 6:1 ). Missionaries Train leaders to carry on their work (Acts 20:25-38 )
Dionysius, Pseudo-Areopagita - God the centre towards which all tend and at the same time the all-embracing circumference within which all are included; the constant streaming forth from Him like rays from the visible sun of divine influences whereby men are purified illumined and drawn upwards to Himself; man's powerlessness to know the real nature and being of God while yet he may be drawn near to Him in the mystic communion of a loving faith: such is very briefly the burden of the Dionysian strain. This subject is pursued in a very noble Train of thought to some length, and is followed by a discussion of still other names and titles, adapted to the infirmity of human understanding, under which God's attributes are made intelligible to us
Sin - Though there are numerous echoes of the older conception that the keeping of God’s commandments is one side of a bargain which conditions men’s happiness and prosperity ( Deuteronomy 4:24 ; Deuteronomy 4:40 , Deuteronomy 6:15 ), yet we observe a lofty range of thought bringing in its Train truer ideas of sin and guilt
Seceders - As there were among them, from the commencement of their secessions, several students who had been educated at one or other of the universities, they appointed one of their ministers to give lectures in theology, and Train up candidates for the ministry

Inspiration - "Every man who hath attended to the operations of his own mind, knows that we think in words, or that, when we form a Train or combination of ideas, we clothe them with words; and that the ideas which are not thus clothed, are indistinct and confused. ...
Let a man try to think upon any subject, moral or religious, without the aid of language, and he will either experience a total cessation of thought, or, as this seems impossible, at least while we are awake, he will feel himself constrained, notwithstanding his utmost endeavours, to have recourse to words as the instrument of his mental operations
Esau - The tragedy is not so patent to us because we do not have Moses to write out our household histories, and Paul to comment on the writing, as in Esau's case; but to those who Train themselves and accustom themselves to look on the world around them in this one single view as God's world, there is plenty of such profanity and self-reprobation going on among us everyday
Ephesians Epistle to the - Parents ought to Train their children wisely
Solomon - Like the wise men coming to the Antitype, she came with a great Train, and with camels laden with presents, in search of Heaven-sent wisdom (Proverbs 1:6; Matthew 2:1), "to prove Solomon with hard questions" (chidah , pointed sayings hinting at deep truths which are to be guessed; very common in Arabic literature), and to commune with him of all that was in her heart; compare as to these "hard questions" Proverbs 30:18, etc
Red Sea - After they set out from Rameses, in the land of Goshen, in the neighbourhood of Cairo, their first encampment was at Succoth, signifying "booths," or an "enclosure for cattle," after a stage of about thirty miles; their second, at Etham, or Adsjerud, on the edge of the wilderness, about sixty miles farther; "for the Lord led them not by the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt: but God led the people about by the way of the wilderness of the Red Sea," or by a circuitous route to the land of promise, in order to Train them and instruct them, in the solitudes of Arabia Petraea, Exodus 13:17-20 ; Deuteronomy 32:10
John the Baptist - There seems, however, no reason to doubt of the close connection, in point of time, between the epistles and the Gospel; and, that being remembered, the Train of thought in the mind of the Apostle sufficiently explains the peculiar character of the latter
Woman - Jesus specifically praises Mary of Bethany for choosing to "sit at his feet" and learn from him (Luke 10:38-42 )a quasi-technical reference to a disciple being Trained by a rabbi and a practice usually denied to women in Jewish circles. Titus 2:4-5 also insists that older women Train younger women in godliness, which includes being good "home-workers
Sin - When sin threatens to reassert itself in both direct disobedience and idolatry, God reveals his new intention to restrain sin by confusing human language at Babel: better that humanity be divided than that it stand together in rebellion against God. The remarkable capacities of humans to think, plan, persuade, and Train others enables wickedness to become clever and strong
Ephraim (4) the Syrian - ...
The story of his parents seeking to Train him in idolatry is at variance with his own statements. 129) he says, "When I sinned, I was already a partaker of grace: I had been early taught about Christ by my parents; they who had begotten me after the flesh had Trained me in the fear of the Lord. To combat their influence Ephrem composed numerous hymns himself and Trained young women who were aspirants after the conventual life to sing them in chorus
Thecla - Being restrained from satisfying her longing to see him and hear his doctrine face to face she remained listening at her window despite her mother's remonstrances. Paul was her first thought and hearing he was at Myra in Lycia she disguised herself in man's attire and set out with a Train of attendants male and female
Education in Bible Times - Whereas education in the home focused on vocational Training and moral development, the temple and palace schools were designed to produce literate, informed, and capable religious and sociopolitical leaders and administrators. ...
Third, the idea of indeterminism or personal freedom in Hebrew religion gave man and woman dignity as free moral agents in creation; likewise Hebrew education stressed the responsibility individuals have toward God and others, accountability of human behavior, and the need for disciplined Training in making "right" choices. In later Judaism, male children between the ages of five and twenty usually attended synagogue schools and were Trained in the Torah, the Mishnah, and the Talmud. While the Old Testament emphasizes the role of the father as teacher, both parents are given charge to Train their children (Proverbs 1:8,6:20 ; 31:26 ). Again, community instruction was essentially religious in nature and purpose and took the form of didactic and historical meditation, moral Training, sign and symbol, memorization and catechism, festival and sacrificial liturgy, ritual enactment, and priestly role modeling. Hints of these organized schools for particular Training are scattered throughout the Old Testament, especially in the company of the prophets associated with Elisha (2 Kings 2:3,5 ; 6:1-2 ; cf. ...
In addition to formal learning centers, the Old Testament indicates specialized Training took place in organized labor guilds of various sorts. This instruction for vocational, technical, and professional service to society (and especially palace and temple) included military Training, arts and crafts (smiths, artisans, weavers, potters), music, royal officials (scribes, historians, overseers), temple personnel (priests, levites, gatekeepers, treasurers, judges), and domestic servants (midwives, cooks, bakers, perfumers). So much so that Paul reminded Titus that sound teaching shames the critics of Christianity because the doctrine of God is adorned by the lifestyle of "model citizens"believers in Christ Trained in godliness (2:6-10). Third, effective education is rooted in a mentoring relationship (note Jesus with his disciples or the apostles Training others to follow their lead)
Prophecy - ...
We see, or may see, a regular Train of prophecies tending towards one declared end, accurately fulfilled and fulfilling amidst all the confusion and opposition of this tumultuous world; and we see that these prophecies are clear, both in prediction and accomplishment, in proportion to their importance in fixing our belief in the providence of God, and in the great truths of divine revelation
Immortality - Paul of the Death and Resurrection of Jesus as historical facts, together with his identification of Jesus with the Messiah, set a Train of thought working in his mind which yielded entirely new forms, not to be explained by any patch-work of older elements to be found in them
Physician - Later, promising youths from outside were Trained for this practice. Thessalos of Tralles in Lydia announced himself as able to Train physicians in six months. Probably not a practising physician, not perhaps even medically Trained, he wrote in the first half of the century eight books on medicine, including diet and hygiene, general and special pathology, and surgery. For the sake of its value in sexual development he advocated physical as well as mental Training for youth. Soranos of Ephesus, who received his medical and anatomical Training in Alexandria, was the most famous obstetrician of antiquity. ), and, further, if Luke was a Greek either of Antioch or of Antiochian descent, he may have had such Training as was characteristic of Asia Minor at that time
Money - If these were placed in single file, a yard apart, the Train would be almost five miles in length! ( j ) The pound , finally, of another parable ( Luke 19:13 ff
Judgment Damnation - ...
But notwithstanding this spiritualizing Train of thought, the traditional apocalyptic notions-the Parousia, a resurrection of the just and unjust, final judgment by Christ and eternal punishment for the lost-succeeded in maintaining themselves in the Church’s faith
Biblical Theology - His call to repentance and offer of new life fulfills the prophetic office; his sacrificial death and mediatorial role fulfill the role of an eternal high priest; the rule he possesses (John 18:37 ) in David's Train establishes him as King of kings, the invisible God's incarnate regent over all space, time, and history
Prophecy - Of such transcendent worth and excellence is that Jesus said to be, to whom all the prophets bear witness! Lastly, the declared purpose for which the Messiah, prefigured by so long a Train of prophecy, came into the world, corresponds to all the rest of the representation
Abram - A part of society following therefore the pastoral life, led forth their flocks, and, in large family tribes, of which the parent was the head, uniting both the sovereign power and the priesthood in himself, and with a Train of servants attached to the tribe by hereditary ties, pitched their camps wherever a fertile and unappropriated district offered them pasture
Elijah - ) His powers of endurance were such as the highlands of Gilead would Train, and proved of service to him in his after life of hardship (1 Kings 18:46). The still small voice constrained Elijah to wrap his face in his mantle; compare Moses, Exodus 3:6; Isaiah 6:2
Education - The learned circle then moved northwards to Galilee, and Tiberias and Sepphoris became seats of Rabbinical Training. Wherever the Jews were settled, the family gathering of the Passover, the household instruction as to its origin and history, and the Training in the knowledge of the Law, served to knit them together and to intensify their national feeling even in the midst of heathen surroundings. The case of Timothy already referred to is evidence of this; and the Scriptures which the Jewish converts of Berœa ‘examined daily’ were no doubt the OT in Greek which they were Trained to study for themselves. The example of Priscilla, the wife of Aquila, shows that a Jewess (who did not owe all her Training to Christianity) might be possessed of high gifts and attainments (Acts 18:26). Plutarch in his treatise on the education of children says: ‘Some one may object that I in undertaking to give prescriptions in the Training of children of free citizens apparently neglect the Training of the poor townsmen, and only think of instructing the rich-to which the obvious answer is that I should desire the Training I prescribe to be attainable alike by all; but if any through want of private means cannot attain it, let them blame their fortune and not their adviser. Every effort, however, must be made even by the poor to Train their children in the best possible way, and if this is beyond them to do it according to their means’ [de Lib. Down to the Roman period at least, this educational exclusiveness was maintained, and only the sons of those who were full citizens were the subjects of education, although there were cases in which daughters rose to distinction in letters, and even examples of slaves, like the philosopher Epictetus, who burst the restraints of their position and showed themselves capable of rising to eminence in learning and virtue. Gymnastic, for the Training of the body, and music in the larger sense, including letters, for the Training of the mind, were the subjects of instruction. ) We hear of an Ephebarch at the head of a college of ἔφηβοι, or youths who have entered the higher school, and of a Gymnasiarch who superintends the exercises of the παλαίστρα and pays the Training-masters. First, there was the stage of home education, extending from birth to the end of the seventh year, when the children were under parental supervision; second, the stage of school education, beginning with the eighth year and lasting to the sixteenth or eighteenth year; thirdly, there was the stage from the sixteenth or eighteenth to the twenty-first year, when the youths were ἔφηβοι, and were subjected to strict discipline and Training. All the while gymnastic Training went hand in hand with the Training of the intellect
Clement of Rome, Epistle of - Let us reverence rulers, honour elders, and Train our families to do the same (xxi
Messiah - They added, that, though the prison where Sabatai lay was barred and fastened with strong iron locks, yet he was seen to walk through the streets with a numerous Train; that the shackles which were upon his neck and feet did not fall off, but were turned into gold, with which Sabatai gratified his followers
Materialism - Again: when the mind is anxiously engaged in any Train of thought, whether in company or alone, it frequently neglects the impressions made upon the external organs
Christianity - " Such evidence it has afforded in its splendid Train of MIRACLES; in its numerous appeals to the fulfilment of ancient PROPHECIES; in its own powerful INTERNAL evidence; in the INFLUENCE which it has always exercised, and continues to exert, upon the happiness of mankind; and in various collateral circumstances. By Christianity, impurity of thought and desire is restrained in an equal degree as are their overt acts in the lips and conduct. It has restrained the spirit of the prince, and the madness of the people. But we may ask farther, What success has it had on the mind of man, as it respects his eternal welfare? How many thousands have felt its power, rejoiced in its benign influence, and under its dictates been constrained to devote themselves to the glory and praise of God! Burdened with guilt, incapable of finding relief from human resources, the mind has here found peace unspeakable in beholding that sacrifice which alone could atone for transgression. Here the hard and impenitent heart has been softened, the impetuous passions restrained, the ferocious temper subdued, powerful prejudices conquered, ignorance dispelled, and the obstacles to real happiness removed
Monophysitism - When he found that he was about to be condemned for contumacy, he came forth, but brought a large assembly of monks, notables, and even soldiers in his Train
Reformation - Soon after the conclusion of the peace at Nuremburg, died John, elector of Saxony, who was succeeded by his son John Frederic, a prince of invincible fortitude and magnanimity, but whose reign was little better than one continued Train of disappointments and calamities
Basilius, Bishop of Caesarea in Cappadocia - He found the church flooded with "a sea" of worshippers whose chanted psalms pealed forth like thunder, uninterrupted by the entrance of the emperor and his Train
Apostles - Training of the Apostles. The many references made to the Apostles correspond exactly to the position they held; the Gospels are so much occupied with them only because Jesus Himself was constantly occupied with them, not the least of the tasks of His life being to teach and Train them to understand His mind and heart, and to transmit to others a correct representation of what He was and said and did. His primary aim was to discover men who could be taught and Trained to comprehend His character, aims, and labours, who could describe His life to their fellows, who could inform them as to what He said and as to the deeds of mercy and power which He wrought
Babylon - These were succeeded by four square masses of Persian cavalry, each consisting of ten thousand men: and to these again were added, in their order, the Median, Armenian, Hyrcanian, Caducian, and Sacian horsemen,—all, as before, "riding upon horses, every man in array,"—with lines of chariots, four abreast, concluding the Train of the numerous hosts
