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. 1914 edition. Excerpt: ...for the most part distinguishes between sins of weakness and ignorance and mortal sins--the former to be forgiven through the intercession of the heavenly Lord (Rom. 8 84, Heb. 2 18, 4 15, 7 25, 1 John 2 1), the latter irreparable (Heb. 6 4 6., 10 26 6., 1 John 5 16). Jesus does not assume that such sins have been committed by his disciples, but he thinks it necessary for them every day to ask forgiveness. The question has recently been much discussed Whether Or not Jesus offered the prayer in his own behalf, and so accepted a share in this petition for forgiveness. The tradition does not give the Lord's Prayer as meant for himself; it does not introduce it by 'Let us pray, ' but by 'When ye pray, say'; and in view of what has been pointed out above regarding Jesus' attitude of distinguishing himself from his disciples in his relation to God, I think it highly improbable that he meant here to include himself among penitent sinners. In this petition, likewise, the wording of Matthew seems to come nearer to the original than that of Luke; 'remit debts' is a familiar figure with Jesus for the forgiveness of sins (compare Matt. 18 23). Luke likes to explain," and therefore says 'sins' instead of 'debts, ' k_eePi118, however, 'debtors' in the second part of the P3' tltion. The genuineness of this second part has been doubted," because it is said to make the structure unSylnmetrical and to have a moralizing tendency unfit fl' it prayer. Here again there is a slight difference between Matthew and Luke. Luke's form expressed rather the willingness on the part of the person praying to forgive if anybody is 'owing' him, more
