Charles Spurgeon's Illustration Collection - Christ: to be followed Above All
In a letter of Abelard to Eloisa, the following paragraph occurs:–'I will be no philosopher, if so be I must needs fight against St. Paul; I will be no Aristotle, if so be I be separated from Christ.' If all students were thus resolved to hold with the great Teacher at all hazards, we should not see such frequent victims of 'philosophy, falsely so called.' Unlettered ignorance is a great evil, but learned ignorance is worse, and such is all learning which decoys the heart from Jesus.

Decrees of God - The ancient stoics, Zeno and Chrysippus, whom the Jewish Essenes seem to have followed, asserted the existence of a Deity, that, acting wisely but necessarily, contrived the general system of the world; from which, by a series of causes, whatever is now done in it unavoidable results
Mark - This is the reference Mark himself makes to a certain young man who had followed Jesus and the disciples from the house to the Garden of Gethsemane, clothed only in his nightwear (Mark 14:51-52)
Wanderings in the Wilderness - Many scholars therefore conclude that Numbers 33:1 is a combined compilation of place names that are related to pre-Mosaic infiltration from Egypt to Canaan by way of the King's Highway, the place along the second route around Edomite-Moabite territory followed by the Moses/Joshua-led contingent and all those places visited by the Israelites during those 38 punitive years of desert wanderings when like the nomads of every generation they sought water and pasturage for their flocks within that hostile arid environment of the Sinai
Camp - " This alludes to those three being the tribes which immediately followed the Ark, the symbol of God's presence
Herod the Great - This was followed by Antipater, another son, being put to death, who was proved to be guilty of plotting to have his father poisoned
Courtesy - That His attitude was not the conventional attitude of others, but was peculiar to Himself, like His attitude towards the Law (Matthew 5:17), is evident from the following considerations: (1) He recognized and followed the customary laws in so far as they served to express His real sentiments (Luke 7:44-46; Luke 10:5, John 13:4 ff
Persia, Persians - The empire that followed was an 'inferior' one, represented by the breast and arms of silver
Baptists - There were two main bodies among the English Baptists, those who accepted the theology of Arminius, maintaining redemption for all, and those who followed Calvin, admitting redemption for the elect alone
Bartimaeus - Thus, in the case of Bartimaeus himself, we have a notable instance of a determination that resolved to let no opportunity of being healed escape it; of a perseverance that continued its efforts notwithstanding the difficulties placed in its path; of an eagerness that cast off all that hindered its free approach; of a faith that recognized in Jesus the Divinely-appointed Messiah (‘Thou Son of David’) before and not after the cure; and of a thankfulness that showed itself in ready obedience and triumphant praise when the cure was complete (‘followed him, glorifying God’)

Jeroboam - This false religion, set up by Jeroboam and followed by other kings, was the reason God destroyed the northern kingdom and sent the people into captivity (2 Kings 17:21-23)
Gospels (Uncanonical) - Still, it followed in the wake of the canonical Gospels, and what has survived the wreck, reaching us partly on the planks of versions and partly on broken pieces of the original, forms a considerable section of the material for our present survey. Kleuker’s similar Ueber die Apokryphen des NT, Hamburg, 1798; followed in the nineteenth century by Arens’ essay de Evang. Bishop Exsuperius of Toulouse, the canonical list is followed by a note of ‘cetera autem quae uel sub nomine Mathiae siue Iacobi minoris; uel sub nomine Petri et Iohanuis, quae a quodam Leucio scripta sunt; uel sub nomine Andreae, quae a Xenocaride et Leonida philosophic;* [35] This line of inquiry has not yet been followed up; it will lead probably to valuable conclusions with regard to the literary texture of certain strata in these Gospels
Paul - "...
Saul directly, on his conversion "preached Christ in the synagogues that He is the Son of God," to the astonishment of his hearers (Acts 9:20-21); then followed his retirement to Arabia for a considerable part of the whole "three years" between his conversion and his visit to Jerusalem. "...
After the congregation was broken up many Jews and proselytes followed Paul and Barnabas, and heard more of "the grace of God. Certain Pharisees however rose up, insisting on it, but Paul would not yield "for an hour" (Galatians 2); the council followed, in which Peter silenced arguments by the logic of facts, God having given the Holy Spirit to the Gentiles, who believed through him, even as He did to the believing Jews. The decree followed, binding the Gentiles only to abstinence from idol pollutions, fornication, and, in deference to the Jews' feelings, from things strangled and blood. The Judaizers soon followed Paul to Antioch, where Peter had already come
Chronology of the New Testament - 10), followed as to his results provisionally by Ramsay ( Was Christ born at Bethlehem ? 3 , p. ( d ) Origen and others, followed by Turner ( op. We have to include in this period the spread of the Church among the Hellenists, the election of the Seven, and the death of Stephen, followed closely by St
Disciples - ; APOSTLES Followers of Jesus Christ, especially the commissioned twelve who followed Jesus during His earthly ministry. ) Jesus was no doubt especially popular among the socially outcast and religiously despised, but people of wealth and of theological training also followed (Luke 8:1-3 ; Luke 19:1-10 ; John 3:1-3 ; John 12:42 ; John 19:38-39 ). Whereas the term “apostle” retained a more specific meaning, being tied to certain historical eyewitnesses of the resurrected Lord, the word “disciple” tended to lose its narrower associations with the twelve, and/or those who followed the historical Jesus, or who saw the risen Lord, and became a virtual equivalent to “Christian” (Acts 11:26 )
Baptism - ’ In these cases the gift followed upon baptism, with or without the laying-on of hands. In the case of Cornelius and his friends, the gift followed immediately upon the preaching of the word by Peter, and presumably its reception in the heart of those who heard; and it was after that that the Apostle ‘commanded them to be baptized in the name of the Lord’ ( Acts 10:48 ). ( b ) In baptism the believer was to realize most vividly the total breach with his old life involved in his new attitude to God through Christ, a breach comparable only with that effected by death ( Romans 6:2-7 , Colossians 2:12 ); he was to realize also that the consequences of this fellowship with Christ were not only death to sin, but a new life in righteousness as real as that which followed on resurrection ( Romans 6:4 )
Claims (of Christ) - ‘Follow me,’ Jesus said to men (Matthew 4:19; Matthew 4:21 || Matthew 8:22; Matthew 9:9 || Matthew 19:21 ||, John 1:43); and they either rose up straightway and followed Him (Matthew 4:20; Matthew 4:22 || Matthew 9:9 ||), or if they failed to do so, ‘went away sorrowful,’ feeling in their inmost hearts that they had made ‘the grand refusal’ (Matthew 19:22 ||). In the Fourth Gospel, quite apart from those passages in which Christ assumes the title ‘Son of God,’ the sense of this unique relation to God as bearing upon His saving relationship to men meets us everywhere, but especially in the farewell discourse and the intercessory prayer which followed (John 14-17). It is further implied in the parables of the Wise and Foolish Virgins (Matthew 25:1-13) and the Talents (Matthew 25:14-30), and is set forth in detail in that solemn picture of the Last Judgment by which these parables are immediately followed (Matthew 25:31-46)
Alexander the Coppersmith - Alexander followed Paul about wherever he went, poisoning the minds and the hearts of all men to whom his tongue or his pen had access. One of our latest and best authorities thinks that Alexander even followed Paul to Rome, and did his best to poison Nero and his court still more against Paul. Alexander had not yet followed Timothy about poisoning the wells everywhere against him
Septuagint - The best qualified and most able among them was the translator of the Pentateuch, who was evidently master of both Greek and Hebrew: he has religiously followed the Hebrew text, and has in various instances introduced the most suitable and best chosen expressions. Philo, the Jew, a native of Egypt, has evidently followed it in his allegorical expositions of the Mosaic law; and though Dr. Their example was followed by the earlier fathers and doctors of the church, who, with the exception of Origen and Jerom, were unacquainted with the Hebrew: notwithstanding their zeal for the word of God, they did not exert themselves to learn the original language of the sacred writings, but acquiesced in the Greek representation of them, judging it, no doubt, to be fully sufficient for all the purposes of their pious labours
Elijah - In this the prophet obeyed the impulse of the Spirit of God; and Ahab, either under an influence of which he was not conscious, or blindly confident in the cause of idolatry, followed Elijah's direction, and convened the people of Israel, and four hundred prophets of Baal. " The prophet's words were followed with the effect predicted. They went therefore together to Jordan, and fifty of the sons of the prophets followed them at a distance
Synagogue - Then followed, after the singing of a second doxology, the reading of a portion from the prophets, 1 Corinthians 14:34-40 ; Luke 4:16 . " Then followed the doxologies and prelexions, the same as in the synagogues. Prayer succeeded, which was followed by the commemoration of the Saviour's death in the breaking and distribution of bread
Joseph - Joseph found that they had left Shechem for Dothan, whither he followed them. These years were followed by seven years of famine "over all the face of the earth," when "all countries came into Egypt to Joseph to buy corn" (Genesis 41:56,57 ; 47:13,14 )
Truth - ...
One source of progressive knowledge was found by the apostles in the facts of their experience, an experience that covered not only their fellowship with Christ in the days of His flesh, but also the mighty working that followed His ascension to the right hand of God. This may be illustrated by the advance in truth that followed the outpouring of the Spirit of God upon Gentiles who believed in Jesus as the Redeemer
Tongues, Gift of - In the first instance (Acts 2) the tongues were used in doxology; but when teaching followed it was in ordinary language, understood by the Jews, that Peter spoke.

Discipleship - Christ always followed the Divine method; and, accordingly, while He made disciples, and trained them in discipleship, He hardly made any attempt to define or describe what this involves; nor did He give much instruction which represented with any directness the ideal that He had in view. ’ There were, of course, times when this summons called a man literally to arise and go with Jesus to some new place and duty; as when the first among the Twelve ‘left the nets and followed him’ (Mark 1:18; Mark 1:20)

And at the funeral of Herod, if we may believe the account of their most celebrated historian, the procession was followed by five hundred of his domestics carrying spices

Answer - Paul’s answers to those who denied his Apostleship, the Judaizers who followed him from place to place and attempted to undermine his teaching and influence among his converts in his absence-a fact to which we largely owe the letters to the Galatians and the Corinthians, or at least the most characteristic and polemical portions of them
Fathers - "Though we have appealed," he says, "to the churches of the first ages for new proofs of the truth of our doctrine, it is not that we think that the doctors of those times had more right to judge of our faith than those had that followed them; but it is because after a serious examination we have found, that, as for what concerns the common belief that is among us, they have believed and practised the same things without adding other opinions or superstitions that destroy them,—wherein they have acted conformably to their and our rule, THE WORD OF GOD: notwithstanding, it cannot be denied, but that they effectually fell into some wrong opinions, as that of the Millenaries and infant communion," &c

The overthrow of Jericho gave more examples of the religious significance of Israel’s conquest: the role of the priests and the ark, the repeated use of the symbolic number ‘seven’ in the proceedings, and the judgment that followed disobedience to God’s commands (6:1-7:26)
Greek Versions of ot - the Pentateuch; and there is no reason to doubt that this was the first part of the OT to be translated, and that the other books followed at different times and from the hands of different translators. ]'>[1] translators was to be very literal, and they have repeatedly followed Hebrew usage (notably in the use of pronouns, prepositions, and participial constructions) to an extent which runs entirely counter to the genius of the Greek language. ] In the Reformed Churches their fate has been different; for the German and English translators followed Jerome in adopting the Hebrew canon, and relegated the remaining books to the limbo of the Apocrypha. Was followed (Except In Prov. ), sometimes known as U, containing the greater part of Psalms 10:1-18 ; Psalms 11:1-7 ; Psalms 12:1-8 ; Psalms 13:1-6 ; Psalms 14:1-7 ; Psalms 15:1-5 ; Psalms 16:1-11 ; Psalms 17:1-15 ; Psalms 18:1-50 ; Psalms 19:1-14 ; Psalms 20:1-9 ; Psalms 21:1-13 ; Psalms 22:1-31 ; Psalms 23:1-6 ; Psalms 24:1-10 ; Psalms 25:1-22 ; Psalms 26:1-12 ; Psalms 27:1-14 ; Psalms 28:1-9 ; Psalms 29:1-11 ; Psalms 30:1-12 ; Psalms 31:1-24 ; Psalms 32:1-11 ; Psalms 33:1-22 ; Psalms 34:1-22 Job - ; in the German MSS, which have been followed in most printed editions, after Ps.

Renunciation - Renunciation in its bearing on temporal possessions is expounded in the address that followed the rebuke of covetousness (Luke 12:13-34, Matthew 6:19-34).

Methodius - Jerome's unsupported statement that he was translated to Tyre was probably due to a transcriber's error for Patara m the authority which Jerome followed. There is nothing in Methodius's confutations of Origen inconsistent with his having felt warm admiration for the man; and he has certainly followed him in his allegorical method of interpretation

Croisade, or Crusade - The more disciplined armies followed after; and, passing the straits of Constantinople, were mustered in the plains of Asia, and amounted in the whole to 700, 000 men.

They followed the latter method, however, and were often of very great disservice to the western adventurers, which at last occasioned the loss of their city
Plan - According to this view, His Messianic work was in a manner thrust upon Him, and was never followed out deliberately except perhaps for a brief season at the very close. There is no indication that the two teachers ever met before the Baptism, and John’s, imprisonment must have followed almost immediately afterwards. If (as appears more probable) He allowed room for an interval, more or less protracted, before the dawning of the Kingdom, we have still to question whether He planned a development on the lines which were actually followed

Gregorius Thaumaturgus, Bishop of Neocaesarea - " He seems to have followed (strangely enough) the order of the sciences in Comte's classification of the branches of human knowledge. Morals followed physics, and emphasis is laid by Gregory on the practical experience by which Origen desired his pupils to verify all theories, "stimulating us by the deeds he did more than by the doctrines he taught. They refer to the circumstances which followed the ravages of the Goths and Boradi in Pontus, and Asia Minor generally, during the reign of Gallienus.

Sol'Omon - The cost of the temple was, it is true, provided for by David's savings and the offerings of the people; but even while that was building, yet more when it was finished one structure followed on another with ruinous rapidity.

Dominion (2) - ...
Again, in all three passages the verbs which are so translated are followed in the parallel clause of the verse by the words ‘exercise authority over’ or ‘upon’ (Matthew 20:25 Authorized Version and Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885 || Mark 10:42 Authorized Version and Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885, Luke 22:25 Authorized Version), ‘have authority over’ (Luke 22:23 Revised Version NT 1881, OT 1885), representing the words of the original κατεξουσιάζουσιν, ἐξουσιάζοντες. So wide and great was His authority over the powers of life and death, that His word, even though spoken at a distance, was sufficient to effect an instantaneous cure, as when His word of assurance spoken at Cana to the nobleman was followed immediately by the cure of his child who lay sick at Capernaum (John 4:50); and when He confirmed the faith of the centurion, who likened Christ’s power over disease to his own authority over his soldiers, by speaking the word which healed his servant (Matthew 8:8-13 || Luke 7:6-10)
Babel - A dynasty of 11 monarchs followed. Two years of anarchy followed. Two followed, then a second interreign of eight years, and Asaridanus or Esarhaddon followed, son and successor.

Sermon on the Mount - the saying about salt losing its savour is followed by that of the lamp under the bushel—a logion which appears in Mk. there are 4 Beatitudes, followed by 4 Woes which do not appear in Mt. , His disciples may have discerned in them a deeper meaning, knowing that He was accustomed to speak in parables; or He Himself may have explained them, for we must remember that in the Gospels we have excerpts from the teachings of Jesus, pregnant sayings, parables, and aphorisms that stuck in the memory, while the fuller exposition which must often have followed is rarely given, perhaps n
Beda, Historian - The de Temporibus , the latest date of which is 702, may have followed almost immediately, and the de Natura Rerum has been referred to the same date. Luke; that on Samuel followed, 3 books of it being written before the death of Ceolfrith in 716; that on St. The wise Aldfrid reigned during his youth and early manhood, but many years of disquiet followed his death, and even the accession of his friend Ceolwulf in 731 did not assure him of the end of the evils, the growth of which, since king Aldfrid's death, he had watched with misgivings
Saul - Next prophets met him, and suddenly the Spirit of God coming upon him he prophesied among them, so that the proverb concerning him then first began, "is Saul also among the prophets?" The public outward call followed at Mizpeh, when God caused the lot to fall on Saul. Many hid in caves, others fled beyond Jordan, while those (600: 1 Samuel 13:15) who stayed with Saul followed trembling. Saul's slaughter of the priests at Nob, on Doeg's information, followed (1 Samuel 22), Saul upbraiding his servants as if conspiring with David and feeling no sorrow for the king; "yet can David, as I can (1 Samuel 8:14, compare 1 Samuel 22:7), give every one of you fields and vineyards?" etc
Agriculture - In ancient times the same course was followed where hillsides were brought under cultivation (Isaiah 7:25). A beginning was made with pulse varieties, barley came next, and wheat followed. The latter method was followed both in Palestine and in Egypt, and is so still; but the use of the sickle goes back to very early times, as the excavations at Tell el-Hesy have shown
Peter (2) - He followed his father’s occupation, obtaining by it an income adequate to all the wants of his household. When our Lord began His ministry in Galilee, the two brothers Peter and Andrew were summoned by Him to become, in His own striking language, ‘fishers of men’: and this call was immediately followed by that of two other brothers, their partners in business, James and John (Mark 1:16; Mark 1:20). There followed the triple question to Peter touching his love for Jesus, with answers from the Apostle which show that he had now been purged of presumption, boasting, and rash self-confidence
Dates - Tiberius was followed by Caius Caligula in a. Nero followed Claudius in 54, and was supplanted in 68 by Galba. Otho succeeded Galba in 69, and was followed by Vespasian in 70. Vespasian was followed by his son Titus in 79
Moab - Then followed the joint invasion of Moab by Jehoshaphat of Judah, Jehoram of Israel, and the king of Edom (2 Kings 3). At Kirhareseth or Kerak his immolation of his own son struck superstitious fear into the besiegers so that they retired (2 Kings 3:27; compare Micah 6:5-8); and then followed all the conquests which Mesha records on the Moabite stone
Jacob - The leading citizens followed the king in the request. The death of his mother's nurse (Genesis 35:8 ; Genesis 24:59 ) was followed by the death of his beloved wife Rachel while giving birth to Benjamin at Ephrath (Genesis 35:19 ; Genesis 48:7 )
Apocalyptic - The usual pattern, both in Daniel and in the extrabiblical apocalypses, is that a vision is followed by an explanation of the symbolism (Daniel 7:15-27 ; Zechariah 1:7-21 ), rather like the instances in which a parable of Jesus is followed by an interpretation (Matthew 13:24-30,36-43 ; Mark 4:1-20 )

" We may thus say that the true traditional writer To Greeks and To Diognetus is a certain otherwise unknown Ambrosius, convert like Justin from Hellenism to Christianity—the reply To Greeks , the assailants of the writer, being naturally followed by the response To Diognetus , the inquirer
Miracles - The ten plagues followed, which were miracles or signs of the power of God — signs not only to the Egyptians, but also to the Israelites, as is shown by the reference to them afterwards. By the time the emperors professed Christianity, followed by the masses (the 4th century), Christ had been well accredited on the earth: hence there was no further need of such signs
Proselyte - (1) The Hebrews were no longer concentrated in one narrow land where a homogeneous life was followed, but were scattered over all parts of the civilized world, and found themselves in contact with peoples who were religiously far inferior to themselves, however otherwise they might be placed, and who excited, it may be, their disdain, but also their pity. Amongst these the gospel had a different reception; it was readily accepted and eagerly followed
John the Apostle - John followed Jesus to His place of sojourn. He and Peter followed Jesus when apprehended, while the rest fled (John 18:15), even as they had both together been sent to prepare the Passover (Luke 22:8) the evening before, and as it was to John reclining in Jesus' bosom (compare Song of Solomon 8:3; Song of Solomon 8:6) that Peter at the supper made eager signs to get him to ask our Lord who should be the traitor (John 13:24)

Tabernacles, Feast of - ) The feast of tabernacles, like Passover, began at full moon on the 15th day of the month; the first day was a day of holy convocation; the seven days of the feast were followed by an eighth day, forming no part of it (Leviticus 23:34-36; Numbers 29:35), a day of holy convocation, "a solemn assembly" ('atsereth ), or, as the Hebrew denotes, "a closing festival" (2 Chronicles 7:9)

Decapolis - Many of the people from the area joined the crowds that at one time followed Jesus (Matthew 4:25)
Theodotion, Otherwise Theodotus - which followed, as those of Aquila and Symmachus preceded, that of the LXX in Origen's columnar arrangements of the versions
Marcion, a 2nd Century Heretic - There is no direct evidence of his having carried out this design, but as its proposed method is stated to have been the confutation of Marcion by means of his own gospel, and as this is precisely the method followed by Tertullian, who is elsewhere largely indebted to Irenaeus, the work of Irenaeus may have been then written and known to Tertullian. His travels seem more likely to have preceded than to have followed his settling in Rome under Anicetus. Marcion like the orthodox taught that the death of our Lord was followed by a "descent into hell"; but Irenaeus tells us that he taught that there Cain the people of Sodom and others condemned in O. —In rites Marcion followed the church model. Luke's in the main followed the same order and were even in verbal agreement, except that the latter contains much not found in the former
Feasts And Festivals of Israel - The Feast of Unleavened Bread lasted for one week and followed immediately after Passover. Following the stipulations in Leviticus (the two lists differ slightly), this included burnt offerings of seven male lambs, one bull, and two rams, followed by a sin offering of one goat and a fellowship offering of two lambs. Numbers 10:1-10 , however, establishes that terua [ תְּרוּעָה ]'>[11] can mean both "trumpet blast" and that trumpets were sounded at the new moon; the traditional interpretation of this day as a day on which trumpets were sounded is thus reasonable and should be followed. ...
These and similar arguments are not compelling, however, and the calendar of festivals especially seems not to have followed an autumnal New Year cycle
Roman Empire - (The later list of the [1] ‘seven hills’ is not precisely the same, but consists of the first four followed by the Mons Esquilinus, the Collis Viminalis, and the Collis Quirinalis; this list is purely geographical, and has no religious significance. This war was followed by war with the Latins (340-338), in which the Samnites fought on the Roman side. This period was followed by a one year’s truce, which was broken before its end. This was followed by others, interrupted only by an Etruscan war in 311
Apocalyptic Literature - But its full importance and significance came to be realized only with Dillmann’s critical edition of the Ethiopic text in 1851, which was followed in 1853 by a thorough German translation and commentary. A short introductory discourse (37) is followed by the first Similitude, including chs. An account of the coming flood and its occasion is inserted (54:7–55:2), and is followed by the final assault of the heathen world-power (55:3–56) and the return of the dispersed Jews (57). The judgment of the Son of Man over the angels in heaven, and the sentence of kings by Him, followed by vain pleas on their part for mercy, are given next (61–64)
Abram - Others, more bold, followed the track of rivers, and the sweep of fertile valleys, and at length some built cities and formed settlements in those distant regions; whilst others, either from attachment to their former mode of life, or from necessity, continued in their pastoral occupations, and followed the supplies afforded for their flocks by the still expanding regions of the fertile earth. But a visible church relation was established between Abraham's family and the Most High, signified by the visible and distinguishing sacrament of circumcision, and followed by new and enlarged revelations of truth. Paul, he lived in tents in preference to settling in the land of Canaan, though it had been given to him for a possession, in order that he might thus proclaim his faith in the eternal inheritance of which Canaan was a type; and in bearing this testimony, his example was followed by Isaac and Jacob, the "heirs with him of the same promise," who also thus "confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims," and that "they looked" for a continuing and eternal city in heaven
Rivers And Waterways in the Bible - Since roads followed the lines of least resistance, the pattern of early trade routes conformed closely, especially in more rugged terrain, to channels and courses of the rivers and streams, and along the shoreline where the earliest fishing villages developed. when the eastern frontier of the Egyptian province of Canaan followed the Jordan. Even in postbiblical times, the eastern boundary of the Persian and Hellenistic province of Judea followed the Jordan
Luke, Gospel According to - From Luke 18:15 to the end the Markan narrative is followed (from Luke 19:45 to Luke 22:14 very closely) with few omissions, but with some insertions, e. , and the question arises which of the two Evangelists has followed this source the more closely. Now we have seen (§ 2 ) that Luke has followed the order of his Markan source very closely; it is therefore probable that he did the same with the ‘non-Markan document
Maccabees - By the agreement that followed, Hyrcanus was reduced to private life in the enjoyment of a large revenue. Pompey followed him, and Aristobulus promised to surrender.

Joseph - ’ Thereupon the chief butler recalled Joseph’s skill and his own indebtedness to him, and mentioned him to the Pharaoh, who sent for him, and was so impressed by his sagacity and foresight that exaltation to the rank of keeper of the royal seal followed, with a degree of authority that was second only to that of the throne. Instead of regarding the arrangement as a precedent to be followed in different states of civilization, ground has been found in it for charging Joseph with turning the needs of the people into an occasion for oppressing them; and certainly the effect upon the character and subsequent condition of the people was not favourable. His family belonged to Bethlehem, David’s city, but he had migrated to Nazareth ( Luke 2:4 ), where he followed the trade of carpenter ( Matthew 13:55 )

He therefore sent Timothy, who followed him apparently to Athens from Berea (Acts 17:15), and immediately on his arrival at Athens to Thessalonica (1 Thessalonians 3:1)
Hosanna - ’ We can understand how, in this sense, ‘Hosanna’ should be followed by salutations or acclamations, ‘Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord (Psalms 118:26, Matthew 21:9, Mark 11:9), ‘Blessed is the kingdom of our father David, that cometh in the name of the Lord’ (Mark 11:10), or ‘Blessed is the King of Israel that cometh in the name of the Lord’ (John 12:13). Hosanna was, says Alford (on Matthew 21:9), ‘originally a formula of supplication, but [1] conventionally [2] of gratulation, so that it is followed by a dative, and by “in the highest,”—meaning “may it also be ratified in heaven,”—and he cites 1 Kings 1:36, where Benaiah answers David, saying, ‘Amen: the Lord, the God of my lord the king, say so too
Imagination - All these ends were perfectly served by the imaginative method of presenting truth chosen by the Great Teacher, and consistently followed by Him throughout His public life. In more illiterate periods, preachers naturally followed this method of putting their discourses into a concrete, illustrative, and vivid style; but as books have spread, and the habit of reading has become general, there has been a growing tendency to throw sermons into a more literary form
Joel, Book of - ), extending, it would seem from the promise in the second part ( Joel 2:25 ), over several years, and followed by drought and famine an severe as to necessitate the discontinuance of the meal- and drink-offering, i. The ancient Jews, as represented by the Targum, and the Fathere, who have been followed by Pusey, Hengstenberg, and others, to some extent even by Merx, regarded the locusts of the Book of Joel as not literal but symbolic
Matthew - He felt sure that the Preacher was not well disposed toward him, and his conscience would continually say to his face, How could He be? But at that so commanding gesture, and at those so commanding words, the chains of a lifetime of cruelty and extortion fell on the floor of the receipt of custom; till, scarcely taking time to clasp up his books and to lock up his presses, Matthew the publican of Capernaum rose up and followed our Lord. ...

Attila, King And General of the Huns - But in Eastern Europe, though Attila's kingdom was dismembered at his death, the great body of the Huns, who had followed him from the wilds of Central Asia, settled permanently in the wide plains of the Lower Danube; while, viewed as a special instrument of Providence, "a Messiah of grief and ruin," whose mission it was to chastise the sins of Christians, the "scourge (or rather flail ) of God " had an abiding influence over Western Christendom, and the virtues and merits of the saints who thwarted him by bold resistance or prudent submission shone forth the brighter, the darker became the picture of the oppressor

Donatus And Donatism - The Caecilianist clergy were condemned for their league with a traditor and their acts repudiated as invalid; hence those who followed Majorinus were rebaptized.

Slave, Slavery - Slave-dealers followed the armies on their campaigns and purchased on the spot those who were taken captive.

Readiness - The two terms are used almost interchangeably in Matthew 24:42; Matthew 24:44, as is evident from the fact that the illustration of the necessity for watchfulness by the case of the negligent householder who suffers his house to be broken through (Matthew 24:43), is followed by the exhortation to readiness in the next verse; further evidence being found in the parable of the Ten Virgins, where the proper performance of the duty enjoined in Matthew 25:13 (‘Watch, therefore’) is exhibited in the careful preparation made by the wise virgins, who are described as αἱ ἕτοιμοι, for the coming of the bridegroom
Malachi, Theology of - Perhaps Christ's severe criticism of religious leaders followed by the destruction of the temple in a

Burial - But if by the latter, why in the days that followed did they not produce it, and so silence the disciples’ claims?

Phylacteries, Frontlets - On the other hand, if the literal interpretation is followed, we should have to recognize another of the numerous instances in the Hebrew legislation, in which a deeply rooted and ineradicable practice of heathen origin and superstitious associations was adopted and given a religious signification, precisely as was done with the kindred sign of the tassels on the corners of the mantle (see Fringes, end)

A John the Baptist, Elijah's antitype, the last representative of the Sinaitic law, must be followed by the Messiah and His Spirit speaking in the winning tones of Matthew 11:29. Casting his mantle on him as the sign of a call, he was followed by Elisha, who thenceforth became his minister, and who executed subsequently the former two commands
Atonement - To what extent can we find the more elaborate Pauline doctrine, which we shall find elsewhere in his writings, presented in such fragments of the teaching of the first Christians as we possess? How far is the apostolic interpretation of Christ’s death sustained by appeal to the experience and teaching of Jesus Himself? By what means had the swift transition been made by the apostolic teachers themselves from the state of mind concerning the death of Jesus which is presented in the Synoptic Gospels to the beliefs exhibited in their preaching in the Acts? How was the unconcealed dismay of a bewildering disappointment changed into a glorying? It is clear from the contents of the Synoptic Gospels that, whatever the confusion and distress in the minds of His disciples which immediately followed the death of Christ, they were already in possession of memories of His teaching which lay comparatively dormant until they were awakened into vigorous activity by subsequent events and experiences; these, together with the facts of their Lord’s life and the incidents of His death, may be spoken of as the sources of the apostolic doctrine of the atonement, as to its substance. Paul’s (1 Corinthians 11:23-26)-omits this reference; he is followed by Mark and Luke. This experience was followed by-...

Ignatius - in Lucam, 6), and is in turn followed by Jerome (de Vir. Of the itinerary he followed between Antioch and that town we know nothing.

Paul - Paul, which most often have turned on the great sermons of their hero? Ramsay is of opinion that the first verse of the book implies that the writer intended to pen a third volume, similar in bulk to the Gospel and the Acts; and this would account for the narrative breaking off where it does, with a brief notice of the two years of imprisonment which followed the arrival at Rome. Luke could have used this as the winding-up of his story; and it is incredible that, knowing so pathetic and significant an event to have immediately followed the point to which he had brought his narrative down, he could have omitted to mention it. -Whereas an ordinary letter among us begins with a title of courtesy, addressed to the receiver, and ends with the signature of the writer, preceded by some phrase of courtesy or affection, while place and date stand either above or beneath the whole, an ancient letter commenced with the name of the sender, followed by the name of the recipient, together with a word of greeting, and it ended with the date and the place of writing

Gentiles - In the great post-Exilic book of national consolation the proof of Jahweh’s Godhead is followed by the proclamation of salvation to all mankind: ‘Look unto me and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth’ (Isaiah 45:22).

Language of Christ - For not only was it the official language alike of the Lagid, Seleucid, and, after the Maccabaean interregnum, of the Idumaean Roman rulers to whom the Jews were successively subject; but its cause was furthered by the Hellenizing policy which these rulers generally followed, and by the existence, more or less, all through of a party among the Jews themselves favourable to that policy. ’ The special arguments in favour of this theory are: (1) that copies of the Septuagint could be had at a much smaller cost than Hebrew or Aramaic Manuscripts , that indeed the price of the latter was prohibitive so far as the people generally were concerned; and (2) that the OT quotations in the NT point to a very general familiarity with the Septuagint, inasmuch as the majority of them are verbatim or practically verbatim, or show unmistakable traces of the Septuagint, and particularly as in some cases the Septuagint is followed when it differs from the Hebrew

Ambrosius of Milan - In doctrine he followed reverently what was of best repute in the church in his time, carefully guarding his own and his people's orthodoxy from all heresy, and urging, but with wholesome, if not always consistent, qualifications, the ascetic religious perfection which the best Christians were then pursuing.

Was there excitement among the crowd? Was there strong desire on the part of many to be chosen? Was there any discussion as to the principles He followed in the choice, or did reverence prevent all debate? Was there much disappointment when the number was completed?

The seven Beatitudes in Luke 6:3-9 describe the graces of the Christian character; these are followed in Luke 6:10 by another Beatitude which assumes that those who possess these graces, and are, therefore, not of the world, will, so long as they are in the world, be exposed to its hatred.

John, then, the efficacy of the sacrifice of Christ lay in this—that it was an act of perfect obedience to the will of the righteous Father (John 14:31) and of love to the world (Luke 11:217 John 15:13),—an example, therefore, and an inspiration; but also that it broke the power of sin, and, through the glorified life which of necessity followed it, became a means of spiritual energizing and sanctification to all believers
Sea of Galilee - These would for the most part be constructed of black stone, but varied at times by buildings of white marble, while even the polished granite of Syene helped to break the monotony; and although, on the whole, the majority of the buildings would be dull and sombre, still, in the midst of waving fields of green and gold, the presence of the humble village, and the beach sparkling with the houses and the palaces, the synagogues and the temples of Jewish and Roman inhabitants, would present a scene of great beauty, so that we can well understand how the wild desolations of the pre-Christian century, and the calm and peaceful years that followed the advent of the Messiah, combined to render the district more beautiful when Christ was a citizen of Capernaum than at any other time during its whole history. This is then usually followed by a time of calm with a clear blue sky overhead

Augustine was deeply affected at the close of this visit; and when Pontinius had retired, giving vent to his feelings he addressed Alipius in a most animated strain: "How is this? What shall we do? Ignorant people come, and seize upon heaven; and we, with our learning, (senseless wretches that we are!) behold we are immersed in flesh and blood: Are we ashamed to follow them? Yet is it not a still greater shame, not even to be able to follow them?"
