Excerpt from The Apocalypse, or the Revelation of St. John the Divine: With a Few Notes and Reflections Intended for the Plain Readers of the Holy Volume
L. Prophecy has been the lamp, the light and consolation, of the Church, or of the people of God, through all ages. The Old Testament may be said to have been a prediction of our Lord Jesus Christ, who was to come: and the New Testament, while it is the record of Him who has come, is also the prediction of Him as He who is to come. We do not mean to say that the Bible contains nothing besides prophecy: but we mean to say, that our blessed Saviour is the great and peculiar Object which is manifested to us in the sacred Volume. His first and second Advents form as it were the points to which a large part of the prophetical writings directs us, or to which it especially refers.
