Not illustrated. 1895 edition. Excerpt: ... death, not meaning to draw a complete parallel between "Ge-Hinnom" and hell. It was a striking illustration drawn from physical things of a spiritual condition, but should not be pressed too far. In threatening the Pharisees (Matt, xxiii. 33) with "the damnation of hell" he used the same expression--" the condemnation of Gehenna," as the Greek should be translated--and therefore he meant the same in this case as in Mark ix. Having thus examined the passages of the Gospels cited by Mr. Savage as proofs of Jesus' belief in endless punishment, it may be well to cite a few passages which seem clearly to teach his belief in universal salvation. Thus, in the parable of the leaven, the great Teacher said: "The kingdom of heaven is like leaven, which a woman took and hid in three measures of meal till the whole was leavened " (Matt. xiii. 33). This is certainly a clear declaration that Jesus' Gospel would sometime leaven the whole lump of humanity. In the parable of the lost sheep (Matt. xvi. 11-12) he said, "The Son of man is come to save that which is lost," and as a shepherd will will leave the ninety-nine sheep in the fold and go in search of the lost one till he find it, so will the Good Shepherd seek out the wandering prodigals and bring them back to the fold. In his Sermon on the Mount (Matt. v. 25, 26) he says that the sinner who is cast into the prison of punishment may pay the last farthing and come out. Roman Catholics draw from this passage their doctrine of purgatory, and it certainly seems to teach that punishment will be limited. In Luke xii. 47, 48, it is said that the servant who knows his Lord's will and does it not shall be beaten with many stripes, while he who knows not more
