The New Testament, Arranged in Chronological and Historical Order, Vol. 1 of 2 : With Copious Notes on the Principal Subjects in Theology (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The New Testament, Arranged in Chronological and Historical Order, Vol. 1 of 2: With Copious Notes on the Principal Subjects in Theology To search for truth is the best happinessof an individual; and to discover it, is the greatest blessing he can bestow on society. Moral and religious truth can only be obtained from the right interpretation of Scripture: and the most efi'ectual means of eliciting that right interpretation must be, to ascertain its primary, or historical meaning. The books of Revelation-were. Given to the world at various times, and upon different occasions. Each book was written for some one especial cause. The-all-wise providence of God has not imparted his will, as human legislators are com pelled to do, in abstract precepts, arbitrary institutions, or metaphysical distinctions. His Revelation is so constructed, that it is interwoven with the history of the world. It is a collection of facts and inferences - of narratives and doc trines. To understand the latter, we must-acquaint our selves with the former: and then only shall we perceive that it is equally adapted at all times, to all ages, nations, and climates, so long - as human nature remains the same; and so long as hope and fear, ' and joy and sorrow, and evil and good, and sin and holiness, characterise mankind.
