Christ: the Preacher's Great Theme - The best sermon is that which is fullest of Christ, A Welsh minister, when preaching at the chapel of my dear brother Jonathan George, was saying that Christ was the sum and substance of the gospel, and he broke out into the following story:–A young man had been preaching in the presence of a venerable divine, and after he had done, he foolishly went to the old minister and enquired, 'What do you think of my sermon, sir?' 'A very poor sermon indeed,' said he. 'A poor sermon!' said the young man, 'it took me a long time to study it. ' 'Why, then, do you say it was poor; did you not think my explanation of the text to be accurate?' 'Oh, yes,' said the old preacher, 'very correct indeed. ' 'Will you tell me why you think it a poor sermon?' 'Because,' said he,' there was no Christ in it. ' 'Well,' said the young man, 'Christ was not in the text; we are not to be preaching Christ always, we must preach what is in the text. ' So the old man said, 'Don't you know, young man, that from every town, and every village, and every little hamlet in England, wherever it may be, there is a road to London?' 'Yes,' said the young man. 'Ah!' said the old divine, 'and so from every text in Scripture there is a road to the metropolis of the Scriptures, that is Christ. And,' said he, 'I have never yet found a text that had not a plain and direct road to Christ in it; and if ever I should find one that has no such road, I will make a road, I would go over hedge and ditch but I would get at my Master, for a sermon is neither fit for the land nor yet for the dunghill, unless there is a savor of Christ in it

It is said that this refers to the Injil, or Gospel, revealed to Him whilst yet in His mother’s womb.

It is said that Mary was thirteen or fifteen years old when the announcement was made to her. The master said the Bismillah—“In the name of God, the Merciful, the Compassionate”—which the child at once repeated after him. The child said: “If you know, explain; if you do not, listen. ” ’...

He in sorrow expressed his doubts about her, and, on being told to speak his mind freely, said, ‘There is no cultivation without seed, and no seed without a tree. ’ Mary said: ‘If you say God at first made the trees, then they were produced without seed: if first He made seed, then seed came without a tree. ’ Joseph said: ‘Is a child born without a father?’ Mary said: ‘Yes, without parents, just as Adam and Eve were. ...

Then Mary said to Gabriel: ‘If people ask how the child was born, what shall I reply?’ He said: ‘Say, “I have seen no man, I am fasting; I speak with none about it. ” ’ It is said that when the Jews found her and the child under the tree, they began to make a tumult and reproached her, saying, ‘Neither thy father nor mother were evildoers. ’ They became very angry, and said: ‘How shall we speak to the infant?’ However, they asked him the circumstances of his birth. He said: ‘I am the slave of God, appointed to be a prophet and a blessing in whatever place I may be, and He has ordered me to keep the fast and almsgiving as long as I live. ’ Having said this, he did not speak again till the natural time for an infant to speak arrived. Having witnessed the miracle, the Jews gave up their suspicion and reproach, and said that this was the prophet of whose birth the preceding prophets had spoken. Jesus said: ‘Such a lame and such a blind man stole the thing. ’ When accused, the blind man said: ‘How could I see to steal?,’ and the lame man, ‘How could I walk to do so?’ Jesus said: ‘The blind man carried the lame man, who then from a shelf took the goods and divided the booty. ...

The king, knowing the wine of that place, said: ‘Why dost thou lie? no such wine is to be found there. The king then called for Jesus, and said: ‘The heir to my throne died a little while ago, restore him to life. ’ Jesus said that his return to life meant many evils to the country. The king said: ‘Let the country be ruined if I only get one glimpse of him. ’ Jesus said: ‘If I raise him, will you let me go in peace?’ The king agreed; so the prince came to life, and Jesus went away. Then Jesus, when going on the way, asked a shepherd to feed him, who said: ‘Tell one of my men to slay a sheep that it may be cooked. ‘Who art thou?’ said the shepherd. They said: ‘Cure the king and we will give you much money. Jesus, seeing this, said: ‘If I raise your king, will you forgive my friend?’ Jesus raised the king and released the Jew. Jesus said: ‘Where is the second loaf?’ The Jew said he had only one. He said: ‘You weep now, when the enemy comes you will forsake me. They also said: ‘Will another prophet come after thee?’ He said: ‘Yes, of the Quraish tribe, an unlettered prophet, Mohammed, superior to me, will come. He said: ‘After my death trays full of light will come, and by the blessing of that light you will know the languages of all tribes. In the morning the Jews sent a man to find Jesus, but he returned and said that no one was there. Then the Jews said: ‘Thou art Jesus,’ and crucified him. Jesus said: ‘If one of you will assume my appearance, God will reward you in Paradise. In the morning the Jews said, ‘There were eighteen men with Jesus; one is short. ’ The prisoners said Jesus had gone on high; but the Jews saw one like Jesus and crucified him. ...

So again, it is said, God is no respecter of persons, (Acts 10:34) Certainly not: for it is not the person of the believer, but the Lord Jesus Christ in that believer, or by virtue of JEHOVAH beholding the person of Christ in that believer, that is the sole cause of acceptation

Dioscorus (1), Patriarch of Alexandria - "The country," he said, "belonged to him rather than to the sovereigns" ( τῶν κρατούντων ). Eusebius on the one hand, those of Eutyches on the other—were accordant with the decisions of the councils of Nicaea and Ephesus—"two councils in name," said he, "but one in faith" ( ib. When the passage was reached in which Basil of Seleucia and Seleucus of Amasia had said that the one Christ was in two natures after the incarnation, a storm of wrath broke out. " "Be quiet for a little," said Dioscorus; "let us hear some more blasphemies. "We accept this statement," said Dioscorus. " "We all agree to this," said Dioscorus. "We agree," said the council ( ib. This aroused once more the zealots of the Alexandrian party; one bishop sprang forward, shouting, "This upsets the whole church!" The Egyptians and the monks, led by Barsumas, cried out, "Cut him in two, who says two natures! He is a Nestorian!" Basil's nerves gave way; he lost, as he afterwards said, his perceptions, bodily and mental ( ib. "It is false," said Flavian. "If Flavian," said Dioscorus, "knows anything which supports his opinion, let him put it in writing . " Flavian then said that the acts had been scrutinized, and no falsification had been found in them; that, for himself, he had always glorified God by holding what he then held. " "It must be," said Dioscorus in answer; "if my tongue were to be cut out for it, I would still say so. Lucentius, another delegate, said, "He has presumed to hold a synod without leave of the apostolic see, which has never been done. ) "We cannot," said Paschasinus, "transgress the apostolic pope's orders. " They bade Dioscorus sit in the middle by himself, and the Roman deputies sat down and said no more. " "No," said the magistrates, "the charge against you must first be met; wait until the acts have been read, as you yourself desired. " Dioscorus coolly said that if the bishops had not understood the merits of the case, they ought not to have signed. Aetius, archdeacon of Constantinople, said it had not even been "received. " "But," said Dioscorus, "the acts shew that I proposed that it should be read. " Juvenal, on being questioned, said, "The chief notary told us that he had an imperial letter; I answered that it ought to come first; no one afterwards said that he had in his hands a letter from Leo. Basil) said that he had not power, of himself, to order the reading of the letter ( ib. When the reader came to Dioscorus's words, "I examine the decrees of the Fathers" (councils), Eusebius said, "See, he said, 'I examine'; and I do the same. " Dioscorus caught him up: "I said 'examine,' not 'innovate. " "He said, Seek, and ye shall find," retorted Eusebius ( ib. One bishop objected to the record of "Guardian of the faith" as an acclamation in honour of Dioscorus, "No one said that. " "They want to deny all that is confessed to be the fact," said Dioscorus; "let them next say they were not there. " "There are four copies," said Dioscorus calmly, "which contain it. ) There was some further criticism of the profession of faith made by Eutyches; whereupon Dioscorus said, "If Eutyches has any heterodox opinion, he deserves not only to be punished, but to be burnt! My only object is to preserve the Catholic faith, not that of any man. "If you taught in such a Catholic tone," said the magistrates, "why did you sign the deposition of Flavian?" Basil pleaded the compulsory authority of a council of bishops. "On your own shewing," said Dioscorus, "you betrayed the faith for fear of men. " "But," said the magistrates, "you said at first that you had been forced to sign a blank paper. Thalassius only said, "It was not my doing. " "Such a defence," said the magistrates, "is no defence when the faith is concerned. " "If," said Dioscorus, "you blame me for obeying Elpidius, were no rules broken when Theodoret was brought in?" "He came in as accuser. "Let his next words be read," said Dioscorus; "you will find that he is inconsistent with himself. Dioscorus, still undaunted, said, "The reason why Flavian was condemned was plainly this, that he asserted two natures after the incarnation. After more reading, he said, "I accept the phrase 'of two natures,' but I do not accept 'two'" ( i. " "Was Flavian," asked Paschasinus, "allowed such freedom of speech as this man takes?" "No," said the magistrates significantly; "but then this council is being carried on with justice" ( ib. " Eustathius, wishing, he said, to promote a good understanding, asked whether "two natures" meant "two divided natures. " "No," said Basil, "neither divided nor confused" ( ib. After some discussion as to making an exposition of faith, which led to the reading of the creed in its two forms—both of which were accepted—and of Cyril's "two canonical epistles," and of Leo's letter to Flavian (the Tome), which was greeted with "Peter has spoken by Leo; Cyril taught thus; Leo and Cyril have taught alike," but to parts of which some objection was taken by one bishop, and time given for consideration, the usual exclamations were made, among which we find that of the Illyrians, "Restore Dioscorus to the synod, to the churches! We have all offended, let all be forgiven!" while the enemies of Dioscorus called for his banishment, and the clerics of Constantinople said that he who communicated with him was a Jew ( ib. Three bishops, sent with a notary, found him, and said, "The holy council begs your Holiness to attend its meeting. " "I am under guard," said he; "I am hindered by the officers" ( magistriani, the subordinates of the "master of the offices," or "supreme magistrate of the palace," see Gibbon, ii.

If the mass be said for a person distinguished, by his rank or virtues, it is followed with a funeral oration; they erect a chapelle ardente, that is, a representation of the deceased, with branches and tapers of yellow wax, either in the middle of the church, or near the deceased's tomb, where the priest pronounces a solemn absolution of the deceased.

Abiathar - ...
A difficulty arises from the circumstance that, in 1 Kings 2:27 , Abiathar is said to be deprived of the priest's office by Solomon; while in 2 Samuel 8:17 1 Chronicles 18:16 24:3,6,31 , Ahimelech the son of Abiathar is said to be high priest along with Zadok.

Jealousy - Probably the most striking example of the anthropomorphic portrayal of God is in those passages where he is said to be jealous. In Romans 10:19 , Israel is said to be provoked to jealousy by Gentile nations that receive divine blessings. "...

Prayer: Believing - Is it not a sad thing that we should think it wonderful for God to hear prayer? Much better faith was that of a little boy in one of the schools in Edinburgh, who had attended a prayer-meeting, and at last said to his teacher who conducted it, 'Teacher, I wish my sister could be got to read the Bible; she never reads it. The teacher thought it very rude of the boy to disturb the people in a crowded room, and so the next day when the lad came, he said, 'John, I thought it was very rude of you to get up in the prayer-meeting and go out. ' ...
'Oh, sir,' said the boy, 'I did not mean to be rude; but I thought I should just like to go home and see my sister reading her Bible for the first time
Chaldean Language - The Hebrew language is held to be closely related to the Aramaic: that the two are not the same is evident from Isaiah 36:11 , where the Jewish leaders asked Rabshakeh to speak in the Syrian language, and not in the Jews' language, that the Jews generally should not understand what was said. There must be some reason why in Daniel it is said the wise men answered the king in 'Aramaic:' this is held to be not the learned and court language, but the common language of the people; and the wise men may have used it that all who heard it might judge of the reasonableness of what they said, though the king might condemn them
Aurelian, Roman Emporor - The few facts which connect the name of this emperor with the history of the Christian church are as follows:—(1) he is said (Vopiscus, c.

Father - Thus Jubal is said to have been the father of such as dwell in tents; and "Tubal the father of all such as handle the harp or organ. " (Ephesians 3:14-15)...
Hence, in relation to him under this sweet appellation and character, the Lord Jesus himself said to Mary after he arose from the dead, "I ascend unto my Father and your Father, and to my God and your God. (Isaiah 9:6) I refer the reader to what was said under the article Abba, for the farther view of the blessedness of this relationship
Conversations - The formula of assent in conversation was Συ ειπας , Νκτρβδ , Thou hast said, or Thou hast rightly said.

Adoption - ...
In Romans 8:15 , believers are said to have received "the Spirit of adoption," that is, the Holy Spirit who, given as the Firstfruits of all that is to be theirs, produces in them the realization of sonship and the attitude belonging to sons. In Galatians 4:5 they are said to receive "the adoption of sons," i. In Ephesians 1:5 they are said to have been foreordained unto "adoption as sons" through Jesus Christ, RV; the AV, "adoption of children" is a mistranslation and misleading

Merit - Signifies desert, or to earn: originally the word was applied to soldiers and other military persons, who, by their labours in the field, and by the various hardships they underwent during the course of a campaign, as also by other services they might occasionally render to the commonwealth, were said, merere stipendia, to merit, or earn their pay; which they might properly be said to do, because they yielded in real service an equivalent to the state for the stipend they received, which was therefore due to them in justice
Achish - The first time the servants of Achish reminded him that of David it had been said that he had slain his ten thousands. The second occasion was when David's heart failed him, and he said, "I shall now perish one day by the hand of Saul

But, in the parallel passage, it is said to be, εσμυνισμενον οινον , "wine mingled with myrrh," Mark 15:23 , a very bitter ingredient
Repentance - Such was the repentance of Juda, Matthew 27:3 ; and so it is said that Esau found "no place of repentance" in his father Isaac, although he sought it with tears, Hebrews 12:17 ; that is, Isaac would not change what he had done, and revoke the blessing given to Jacob, Genesis 27:1-46 . God is sometimes said to "repent" of something he had done, Genesis 6:6 Jonah 3:9,10 ; not that he could wish it undone, but that in his providence such a change of course took place as among men would be ascribed to a change of mind

Locusts - What a solemn lesson this taught, when a creature so contemptible had power from the Lord to humble the haughtiness of man! If the reader will compare what Joel hath said Joel 1:6-7 and Joel 2:3-11 with Revelation 9:1-12, he will find large scope for meditation. " (Exodus 10:14) The locusts, described by Joel, are said to be as "the appearance of horses, and as horsemen, shall they run. " They are said, moreover, to march in such a regular way, that they shall not break their ranks, nor thrust one another in their path. These are said to be of the scorpion kind. Their shapes are said to be like unto horses prepared for battle. In Proverbs 30:27, the locusts are said to have no king. But the locusts John describes, are said to have a king over them, which is "the angel of the bottomless pit
God: Vague Conceptions of - After thus trying to gratify their curiosity they returned into the village, and sitting down together they began to give their ideas on what the elephant was like: the man who had seized his trunk said he thought the elephant was like the body of the plantain tree; the man who had felt his ear said he thought he was like the fan with which the Hindoos clean the rice; the man who had felt his tail said he thought he must be like a snake, and the man who had seized his leg, thought he must be like a pillar. An old blind man of some judgment was present, who was greatly perplexed how to reconcile these jarring notions, respecting the form of the elephant; but he at length said, 'You have all been to examine this animal, it is true, and what you report cannot be false: I suppose, therefore, that that which was like the plaintain tree must be his trunk; that which was like a fan must be his ear; that which was like a snake must be his tail, and that which was like a pillar must be his body

And the king said, Is there not yet any of the house of Saul, that I may show the kindness of God to him? And Ziba said unto the king, Jonathan hath yet a son, which is lame on his feet. And the king said unto him, Where is he? And Ziba said unto the king, Behold, he is in the house of Machir, the son of Ammiel, from Lo-debar. And David said unto him, Fear not, for I will surely show thee kindness for Jonathan, thy father's sake, and will restore thee all the lands of Saul thy father, and thou shalt eat bread at my table continually. And David said unto his servants, and to them that sat at his table, Arise, let us flee. And the king said to Ziba, What meanest thou by these? And Ziba said, The asses be for the king's household to ride on, and the bread and the summer fruits for the young men to eat, and the wine that such as be faint in the wilderness may drink. And the king said, Where is thy master's son? And Ziba said to the king, Behold, he abideth in Jerusalem; for he said, Today shall the house of Israel restore to me the kingdom of my father. Then the king said to Ziba, Behold, thine are all that pertained to Mephibosheth. And it was on that day that David went up to the chamber over the gate of Mahanaim, and wept; and as he went there he said, O my son Absalom; my son, my son Absalom! would God I had died for thee, O Absalom, my son, my son!...

And the king said to Shimei, Thou shalt not die. And Joshua said, Who are ye, and whence come ye? And they said, From a very far country thy servants are come, because of the name of the Lord thy God. For Mephibosheth had not dressed his wooden feet, nor trimmed his beard, nor washed his clothes for grief, so he said, from the day that the king departed. My lord, said Mephibosheth-but 'the tale was as lame as the tale-bearer. Say no more, Mephibosheth, said David, as he saw Jonathan's son crawling so abjectly before him.

Ear - But how delightful is it to make interpretation, of what the Jewish servant said respecting the house of his servitude, in allusion to the Lord Jesus in the house of his! who, as the servant of JEHOVAH (for such he fully became, when he became our Surety), might be said thus to express himself, I love my master, I love my wife, my children; I will not go out free.

Face - (2 Chronicles 6:42) So again, when it is said, "The face of the Lord is against them that do evil," it means, that the Lord himself is so.

Concerning the face of the Lord, it is said by the Lord to Moses, "Thou canst not see my face; for there shall no man see me and live. " (Exodus 23:20-21) In whom but Christ, as Christ, was ever the name of JEHOVAH? So again, when it is said
Murmur, Murmuring - —A low continuous sound, as of a stream or of bees, hence a whispering, something said in a low muttering voice. It is found in the Gospels with the accusative of the thing said (John 7:32), with περί τινος (John 6:41; John 6:61; John 7:32), κατά τινος (Matthew 20:11), σρός τινα (Luke 5:30), and μετʼ ἀλλήλων (John 6:43). For its use in a friendly sense see John 7:31-32, where the murmuring was that of persons who believed on Jesus, and who said, ‘When the Christ shall come, will he do more signs than those which this man hath done?’—a dangerous omen to the Pharisees. The noun γογγυσμός, as used in John 7:12, includes both favour and hostility: ‘There was much murnmring among the’ multitudes concerning him; some said, He is a good man; others said, Not so, but he leadeth the multitude astray
Tares - ...
I do not presume to speak decidedly on any subject but such as God the Holy Ghost hath been pleased most clearly to reveal; and therefore what the eastern writers have said on the article of tares, I only venture to relate, as the matter appears in their account, leaving the reader to his own conclusions under the grace of God. But if what they have said concerning tares be true, it serves to throw a more beautiful light on our Lord's parable concerning them than is generally understood. In the blossoming season the resemblance is said not to be so striking then as in the earlier appearance; but from that time to the fruit forming and advancing to ripeness, the discovery becomes more and more discernable. ...
But what makes the parable of Christ so truly striking on the subject is, that while the tares are said to have carried with them so strong a resemblance to the pure seed, the tares differed so very highly from it in quality as to be little short of being poisonous. ...
I would only beg to add a short observation upon the subject, and just to say, under this view, how mistaken must be the notion of those, who fancy that when our Lord said, Let both grow together until the harvest, that this was meant to say, perhaps the tares if continued under the means of grace might become good corn
Inspiration - ' Other passages speak of the importance of 'words:' Peter said, "To whom shall we go? thou hast the words (ῥήματα) of eternal life," John 6:68 : and we find those words in the Gospels. Paul in writing to the Corinthian saints said, "Which things also we speak, not in the 'words' (λόγοι)which man's wisdom teacheth, but which the Holy Ghost teacheth. The Lord Jesus said, "The words (ῥήματα) that I speak unto you, they are spirit and they are life. It need scarcely be said that it is not the sayings but the records of them that are inspired. ...
Another objection to the value of verbal inspiration is that most persons read scripture in a translation, the words of which cannot, it is alleged, be said to be inspired. But if the translation conveys exactly the same meaning as in the original, the words can be said to be inspired: for instance, the words 'God is love,' may surely be said to be the same as ὁ θεὸς ἀγάπη ἐστίν, or Deus caritas est, Dieu est amour, or Dio è carità, to those who can read them. It may be that the translations from which the above are taken cannot in all places be said to be the same as the Greek; but this only shows the great importance of each having a correct translation in his vernacular tongue

Teacher, Teaching - Paul left Timothy at Ephesus to charge some not to teach other doctrine than what the apostles taught; and those that did teach otherwise are said to be "puffed up, knowing nothing," etc. On the contrary, the apostle said, "I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgement
Horn - " (Luke 1:69) But when it is said, that the Lord "will cut off the horns of the wicked, and the horns of the righteous shall be exalted," (Psalms 75:10) here it appears, that the expression is in allusion to somewhat of a man's own, and not simply with an eye to Christ. Thus the son of "Chenaanah made him horns of iron, and said, with these shalt thou push the Syrians

Theodorus of Tabenna - Athanasius in the Thebaid, and is said to have announced to him the death of the emperor Julian, then occurring in Persia (Athan. 8) calls him presbyter, and gives the substance of 3 epistles he is said to have addressed to other monasteries
Amen - ...
When David declared that Solomon should be his successor, Benaiah said "Amen: the Lord God of my lord the king say so too. So when David brought up the ark, and delivered a psalm of thanksgiving, all the people said, Amen, and praised the Lord. ' Hananiah prophesied falsely that within two full years all the vessels of the Lord's house would be returned from Babylon; Jeremiah said "Amen, the Lord do so;" though he knew it was a false prophecy he could well hope that such a thing might be. In these instances it is not another acquiescing in what is said, but the writer adds Amen at the end, signifying 'may it so be,' and three times it is repeated
Resurrection - This may be said to be the fundamental principle of God's dealings with man in grace, seeing that man is through sin under the judgement of death. ...
It will be seen in Romans 8:11 , that the resurrection of believers is of a wholly different order from that of the wicked: the saints will be quickened by, or on account of, God's Spirit that dwells in them, which certainly could not be said of the unconverted. There were those at Corinth who said that there was no resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:12 ); and on the other hand it appears from 2 Timothy 2:18 , some held that the resurrection had already past, that they had in fact reached a final condition!...
Few distinct intimations of the resurrection are found in the O. Martha spoke of the resurrection as a matter of common orthodox belief, John 11:24 ; which is also implied in its being said that the Sadducees did not believe in it
Look - No description of Jesus’ ‘face’ is ever given in the Gospels, except when, in the story of the Transfiguration, it is said that the fashion of His face was altered (ἐγένετο τὸ εἶδος τοῦ προσώπου αὐτοῦ ἔτερον, Luke 9:29). If there were space to offer a complete list of those things which Jesus is said in the Gospels to have beheld or seen, the impression would at least be strong that those calm eyes missed nothing. On one occasion His disciples were permitted to share a deeper gaze into the world behind the veil—‘And He said unto them, I beheld (ἐθεώρουν) Satan as lightning fall from heaven’ (Luke 10:18). The simplest record of this is when it is said that He ‘looked round’ before speaking (Mark 3:34; Mark 10:23 περιβλεψάμενος); or that ‘he beheld (ἐμβλέψας) them and said’ (Matthew 19:26); or when more fully St. Luke states in reporting the Sermon on the Mount, ‘And he lifted up his eyes (ἐπάρας τοὺς ὀφθαλμούς) on his disciples, and said’ (Luke 6:20). ’ More individual instances of this look are when Jesus ‘beheld’ (ἐμβλέψας) Peter, and said, ‘Thou art Simon … thou shalt be called Cephas’ (John 1:42)—a look sealing the new name upon Peter’s heart; or when He ‘beheld’ (ἐμβλέψας) the chief priests and scribes, ‘and said, What is this then that is written?’ (Luke 20:17)—a grave look of reproach, ‘to add solemnity to His reference to their own Scriptures
Peniel - The patriarch called it by this name on this account; for he said, "I have seen God face to face, and my life is preserved. And who was it Jacob saw, and with whom did he wrestle? If JEHOVAH, in his threefold character of person, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, how could this be, who is said to be invisible? If "no man hath seen God at any time," if, as JEHOVAH declared to Moses, (Exodus 33:20) "There shall no man see me and live," who could this be whom the patriarch Jacob saw, conversed and wrestled with; but the Lord Jesus? Him whom though no man hath seen God at any time, yet "the only begotten Son, which is in the bosom of the Father, he hath declared him. " (John 1:18) Let the reader read the whole passage concerning this Peniel, this hallowed ground, as it is recorded through the whole chapter, (Genesis 32:1-32) and let him then compare what is there said with what the prophet Hosea, about a thousand years after, said concerning this vision; and let him then, looking up for the teaching of God the Holy Ghost, determine for himself. "He took his brother by the heel (said Hosea, speaking of Jacob) in the womb, and by his strength he had power with God; yea, he had power over the angel, and prevailed. (See Genesis 48:15-16) And if we add to these striking particulars what is said of the Lord, and by the Lord, under the character of human feelings, in other parts of the Old Testament, I cannot but conclude that the whole is abundantly confirmed, that it is the Lord Jesus, and him only, in his mediatorial character, who is all along to be understood as the visible JEHOVAH. Thus it is said, that "his soul was grieved for the misery of Israel. " (1 Timothy 1:17) Hence, When the read in the word of God that the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears open to their prayers, and that he openeth his hand and satisfieth the desire of every living thing, these expressions are literally true, as well as blessedly refreshing, considered as spoken of Him in whom it hath pleased the Father that "all fulness should dwell," and who is the Head of all principality and power; but cannot be said of JEHOVAH in his absolute nature and GODHEAD, "dwelling in the light which no man can approach unto, whom no man hath seen or can see
Eternal - , of God, Romans 16:26 ; of His power, 1 Timothy 6:16 , and of His glory, 1 Peter 5:10 ; of the Holy Spirit, Hebrews 9:14 ; of the redemption effected by Christ, Hebrews 9:12 , and of the consequent salvation of men, Hebrews 5:9 , as well as of His future rule, 2 Peter 1:11 , which is elsewhere declared to be without end, Luke 1:33 ; of the life received by those who believe in Christ, John 3:16 , concerning whom He said, 'they shall never perish,' John 10:28 , and of the resurrection body, 2 Corinthians 5:1 , elsewhere said to be 'immortal,' 1 Corinthians 15:53 , in which that life will be finally realized, Matthew 25:46 ; Titus 1:2 . ...
"Aionios is also used of the sin that 'hath never forgiveness,' Mark 3:29 , and of the judgment of God, from which there is no appeal, Hebrews 6:2 , and of the fire, which is one of its instruments, Matthew 18:8 ; 25:41 ; Jude 1:7 , and which is elsewhere said to be 'unquenchable,' Mark 9:43
Confirmation - There are 3 passages in Acts ( Acts 14:22 ; Acts 15:32 ; Acts 15:41 ) in w hich Paul and Barnabas, or Judas and Silas, or Paul by himself, are said to have confirmed ‘the souls of the disciples,’ ‘the brethren,’ ‘the churches. In the ‘Order of Confirmation’ in the Book of Common Prayer, ‘the laying on of hands upon those that are baptized and come to years of discretion,’ as performed by the bishop, is said to be done ‘after the example of Thy holy Apostles. In the passages in Acts, however, the imposition of hands is associated with the impartation of extraordinary spiritual gifts, while of Hebrews 6:2 no more can be said than that in the early Church the act appears to have been closely associated with baptism
Light, Light of the World - In John 8:12 Jesus, the God-man, said, “I am the light of the world. ...
A small problem confronts the interpreter who discovers that Jesus said to His disciples in Matthew 5:14 , “Ye are the light of the world. ” Yet in John 8:12 , Jesus said, “I am the light of the world
Dead - ) Carrying no current, or producing no useful effect; - said of a conductor in a dynamo or motor, also of a telegraph wire which has no instrument attached and, therefore, is not in use. ) Out of play; regarded as out of the game; - said of a ball, a piece, or a player under certain conditions in cricket, baseball, checkers, and some other games. ) Flat; without gloss; - said of painting which has been applied purposely to have this effect
Warp - ) To cast prematurely, as young; - said of cattle, sheep, etc. ) A premature casting of young; - said of cattle, sheep, etc. ) To cast the young prematurely; to slink; - said of cattle, sheep, etc
Eli Eli Lama Sabachthani - They are partly in the Hebrew, and partly in the Syriac tongue, and which, perhaps occasioned the perverse misconstruction in some, who supposed the Lord called Elias, when Jesus said Eli. The prophet had said, "That the Lord should roar out of Zion, and utter his voice from Jerusalem, and the heavens and the earth should shake. The loud voice of Jesus was not like one whose strength was gone, but rather uttered in proof of what Jesus had said: "No man taketh my life from me, but I lay it down of myself, I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again
Circumcision - It evidently appears, from the first moment of its institution, that the ordination was with an eye to Christ, for the covenant of redemption by Jesus had this token or seal, and it is expressly said, "that Jesus Christ was a minister of the circumcision for the truth of God, to confirm the promise made unto the fathers. "Behold, I Paul (said he) say unto you, that if ye be circumcised Christ shall profit you nothing. "I testify (said Paul,) again, to every man that is circumcised, that he is a debtor to do the whole law
Hind - "Dogs (as he said) compassed him about, the assembly of the wicked enclosed him; they pierced my hands and my feet," said the meek Redeemer. " "Be thou," (said the church,) "like to the roe, or to the young hart, upon the mountains of spices
Amen - ...
"Thus 'Amen' said by God 'it is and shall be so,' and by men, 'so let it be. ...
"The individual also said 'Amen' to express his 'let it be so' in response to the Divine 'thus it shall be,' Revelation 22:20 . Luke does not use it at all, but where Matthew, Matthew 16:28 , and Mark, Mark 9:1 , have 'Amen,' Luke has 'of a truth;' thus by varying the translation of what the Lord said, Luke throws light on His meaning
Micaiah - "...
So all the rest said, "go up and prosper. " Micaiah, though prompted to imitate their prophecies of good, would say only what Jehovah said (Numbers 22:38). Then, being adjured in Jehovah's name, Micaiah said "I saw all Israel scattered . as sheep that have no shepherd (quoted by the Lord Jesus Himself, Matthew 9:36, as it is previously the basis of Ezekiel 34:5; Zechariah 10:2), and Jehovah said, these have no master (Ahab falling), let them return every man to his house. " Instead of Moses' blessing on Ephraim awaiting Ahab, as Zedekiah had said, Moses' picture of what Israel would be at his death, "Jehovah's congregation as sheep having no shepherd," if no successor were appointed, would be realized (Numbers 27:17). God said to the lying spirit, "go forth and do so

Tin - In Ezekiel 27:12 it is said to have been brought from Tarshish, which was probably a commercial emporium supplied with commodities from other places
Earnest - In general usage it came to denote "a pledge" or "earnest" of any sort; in the NT it is used only of that which is assured by God to believers; it is said of the Holy Spirit as the Divine "pledge" of all their future blessedness, 2 Corinthians 1:22 ; 5:5 ; in Ephesians 1:14 , particularly of their eternal inheritance

Mass - Nicod, after Baronius, observes, that the word comes from the Hebrew missach (oblatum;) or from the Latin missa missorum; because in the former times the catechumens and excommunicated were sent out of the church, when the deacons said, Ite, missa, est, after sermon and reading of the epistle and Gospel; they not being allowed to assist at the consecration.

As to ordinary masses, some are said for the dead, and, as is supposed, contribute to fetch the soul out of purgatory. If the mass be said for a person distinguished by his rank or virtues, it is followed with a funeral oration: they erect a chapelle ardente, that is, a representation of the deceased, with branches and tapers of yellow wax, either in the middle of the church, or near the deceased's tomb, where the priest pronounces a solemn absolution of the deceased. ...

(Isaiah 25:6) But the sweetest commendation of Jesus and his gospel, is that which under the similitude of wine is given by the spouse, (Song of Song of Solomon 1:2) where she desires to be kissed with the kisses of Jesus's mouth, for, said she, thy love is better than wine

Tongue - ]'>[1] Here, as in primitive thought generally, to which the nervous system and the more minute structure of the tissues were unknown, the tongue was thought to possess an inherent faculty of speech, and the ethical qualities attaching to what was said were attributed to the organ itself (ethnic parallels in J. As, in the OT, the tongue is said to concoct deceit (Psalms 50:19), and iniquity is said to be in it (Job 6:30) or under it (Psalms 10:7), so, in the NT, it is said to defile the whole body, to be a restless evil, full of deadly poison (James 3:6; James 3:8)
Temptation - ” In Deuteronomy 8:2 Moses said: “God led thee these forty years in the wilderness, to humble thee, and to prove ( nsh ) thee, to know what was in thine heart, whether thou wouldest keep his commandments, or no. ” In 1 Corinthians 10:13 Paul said: “There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it. Jesus quoted Deuteronomy 6:16 when He said: “Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God” ( Matthew 4:7 ). ) When the apostles and elders from the Jerusalem church came to Antioch and questioned the admission of the Gentiles into the church, Peter said that the Holy Spirit had been given to the Gentiles: “Why tempt ye God?” (Acts 15:6-11 )

According to a late Priestly passage (Numbers 31:2-18 ), Moses is said to have gained a great victory over the Midianites
Lamp - Much is said in the holy Scripture concerning the lamps of the temple. It is said in the history of Samuel, "that ere the lamp of God went out in the temple of the Lord where the ark of God was, and Samuel was laid down to sleep, that the Lord called Samuel. The Lord is said to be the light of his people, (Psalms 27:1; Job 29:3) and even his servants, shining by his brightness, are spoken of by the same figure. Thus David was called "the lamp of Israel," 2 Samuel 21:17 and John the Baptist said to be "a burning and a shining light
Solomon - "Add to these, Solomon king of Israel typified Christ as a king and as a preacher in Jerusalem; and also in his wisdom, in the riches, magnitude; peaceableness, and glory of his kingdom, and in the building of the temple, which was a beautiful type of the Lord Jesus; who is not only the builder of the temple, which is his church, but the foundation of it, the substance, and the glory of it; for he and he alone, as the Lord said by the prophet, was the only one fit to build the temple of the Lord, and he alone "could only bear the glory. I know that some commentators have supposed that what is there said is said first of Solomon, king of Israel, and secondly in an higher sense of the Lord Jesus Christ. But oh, what a degradation of the subject is it thus to suppose! Oh, what indignity is thereby offered to the Lord Jesus Christ! I have said so much on this point in my Poor Man's Commentary on the Book of the Psalms, that I think it unnecessary in this place to enlarge; but I could not suffer the subject even in this little work, while speaking of Solomon, to pass by without remarking the great perversion of the Scripture to suppose that there is in those things the least reference to Solomon, king of Israel
Naphtali - " The patriarch when dying gave a particular blessing to Naphtali, and said "Naphtali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words. ...
I am the more inclined to those discoveries of Jesus, in the view of Naphtali, because in my apprehension of the subject, Moses, the man of God, in his dying benediction concerning Naphtali, confirmed what Jacob in his dying moments had before said concerning him. (See Deuteronomy 33:23) "O Naphtali!" (said Moses) "satisfied with favour, and full with the blessing of the Lord, possess thou the west and the south. " And to whom are we to look for any, or for all the tribes of Israel in the possession of the divine favour, and so satisfied with it? Of whom, among the sons of Jacob, can it be said with truth, "that they are full of the blessing of the Lord," unless we first behold him in whom it hath "pleased the Father that all fulness should dwell," and from him, and in him, and by him, all the seed of Israel "are justified and shall glory?" Surely it is blessed first to eye Christ as possessing and being the cause of the true Naphtali's portion, and then, by virtue of an union with him, and interest in him, to behold those blessings flowing in upon his inheritance
