The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ : Translated Out of the Original Greek, and with the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The New Testament of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ: Translated Out of the Original Greek, and With the Former Translations Diligently Compared and Revised The honored compiler of this book has been a careful student of the Bible almost twice as long as the average age of man; he was an earnest preacher of the gospel which the Bible contains be fore some of his present fellow-laborers in the ministry of the gos pel were born. Impressions made upon the mind of the writer of this commendation more than a quarter of a century ago by th devout Spirit in which the Rev. H. T. Besse approached the word of God still live and bless his Spiritual life. If any one has a right to Speak with authority as to the value of the Bible it is the veter an oi the cross who has stood times without number on the picket line, fought for a lifetime in the thickest of the battle, endured something of the camp and hospital life, and down near the end of life finds the Book of books still the most living reality in the world. Such a veteran is the compiler of this book. His design was to make apparent to every reader the harmony which he found to exist between the Old Testament and the New. This is a most laudable design. He believed, and wanted his readers to believe, that every part of the Bible is essentially alive to-day and ever will be. With this end in view he has gathered on each page what is written by New Testament writers and all that bears upon the same theme fi'om the Old Testament, thus placing before the reader at a single glance both the Old and the New Testament literature. By this method the essential unity of the two parts of the one Book is not only confirmed but exhibited. This book is sure to prove a great help to those who rightly use it. It is more than an analysis of the Bible, although it includes much of that; it is more than a reference Bible, for the passages are at one glance before the reader's eye. Its use will do very much more, but if nothing more were done, it would be a great work to show how perfect and complete is the harmony between the different parts of the Bible, and thus exhibit one of the most satisfactory evidences of its divine inspiration. The numerous writer's scattered over many centuries, living under varying cir cumstances, in different countries, and with different national life. Yet have all clung unwaveringly to the same thought, ever return ing, regardless of distance or direction of thought, to the common center, the Lord Jesus Christ.
