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. 1836 edition. Excerpt: ...it be mistaken. To whom did the Good Shepherd say, " Ye are not of my sheep 1" To men who had but a short time before " taken up stones to cast at Him;" and who, in a few moments after, " took up stones again to stone Him," John viii. 59; x. 31. Well might the Shepherd say to those, who thus thirsted for His blood, " Ye are not of my sheep." Nor was this all the enormity of their guilt: " many of them " had just said, " He hath a devil and is mad;" and all of them had charged Him with blasphemy. These were the persons whom he separated as goats from the shep: and these the circumstances of insult and provocation, under which He spoke. This historical fact can, therefore, have no doctrinal reference, nor prospective application, to any class, who do not resemble these goats. Indeed I ought to call them lions or wolves: for they would have devoured both the Shepherd and all His sheep, if the residue of their wrath had not been restrained by God. Only to them, therefore, and to those who are of the same spirit with them, is there any warrant for applying, in connexion with the atonement, the declaration, " Ye are not of my sheep." This is an exclusion which the Saviour never mentioned nor hinted at, when speaking of the design and bearings of his death, upon the condition of mankind as sinners. Indeed always, except when denouncing those who denounced Him, He represents His death to be " for the life of the world;" and the design of His mission to be, " that the world through Him might be saved." Accordingly, when His apostles went far hence among the Gentiles, who had had no hand in calumniating the Saviour as an impostor, nor in crucifying Him as a blasphemer, His death was proclaimed as " the propitiation for the sins of the whole world."
