Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1859 edition. Excerpt: ... Messiah of the Jews, --the Son of God, in whom all are one, --who died and rose again for the sins of men, --who shall come in the day of the Lord.

For the general meaning compare Jer. i. 5.: "Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou eamest forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations;" and Is. xliv. 2.; also note on Rom. i. 1. 1i. airoKavpai Tov W-oc Comp. the expression used respecting the Galatians: "Before whose eyes Jesus Christ was openly set forth (irpoiypaptj) crucified." iv tio/, in my inmost soul, not simply for Ipol.
