Description

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 John makes no mention of the Baptist until he began his ministry. He does not tell us where Joseph and Mary lived, and never mentions the miraculous conception, birth, or child hood Of Jesus. It is only in quoting the language of others that he mentions the name of the town in which Jesus was born, and the name Of the city in which He was brought up. The first public incident Of Christ's life that John does record took place shortlv after the temptation on the high mountain. It was the meeting of the Baptist with Jesus on the banks of the Jordan, in the presence of a vast congrega tion. AS they met, John cried out, behold the lamb OF god who taketh away the sin OF the world! What a grand proclamation! It was more than the Speaker himself fully understood. John soars so high in the spiritual realm, and sets forth the divine nature Of Jesus in such a glowing light, and surrounds Him with so much heavenly grandeur, that He seems to be too divine to be human. I know the reader will also pardon me for making this digres Sion. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
