Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1843 edition. Excerpt: ...1: The words are different, particularly Matth. v. 21; and with what consistency this can be quoted, see 10; 5, where the Gentiles are excluded. Isaiah is speaking of the return from Babylon: see notes on the part. V. 27, 27: Beelzebub and Satan are synonymous it seems. Satan means an adversary, and Baalzephon was an idol (God). Baalzebub also means the Lord of Flies. V. 32 contradicts Acts 2; 21: Mark 16; 16: Acts 16;3l: Rom. 10; 9, &c. V. 40: Not true; he was only one day and two nights at most; but no one saw him go out of the sepulchre, so that the above is not cer tain. The answer is absurd: the people ask (v. 38) to have a present sign given them, and they are referred to a story about Jonah. A splendid type, too, certainly: Jonah was not dead in the fish, Christ was in the grave; Jonah was a false prophet, Christ pretended to be a true one; Jonah found fault with God, Christ is the reverse; (Heb. 7; 25: l Tim. 2; 5: John 4; 34, &c.) Simon, in his History of the Greek Books, says the original of Matthew was found by Bishop Athenius, in Zeno's reign, at Cyprus, on the breast of St. Barnabas, in his grave, through a dream. V. 48 contradicts the commandment to honour father and mother, for he does not go to them. Through all this and the preceding chapter are long lectures, which could only have been taken down by a short-hand writer with correctness. But we have no evidence that any writer took them down: his apostles were all sent away to preach, and no account of their return has been given yet, nor were the elders yet selected. 13; 14: Isaiah 6; 9-: A command to go to the Jews of that day. V. 32: Not true: the rue and poppy seeds are less. V. 34: Had Christ never read Prov. 26; 7? see Luke 8; 10. This is a fine reformer. V....show more
