Not illustrated. 1793 edition. Excerpt: ... that horrid tragedy? These, to be fare, were the traitors, which by the hands of Judas, dilevered up Jesus to be crucisied: What were Pilate, the Jews, or Romans, but the executioners of your sins? Who put the sword in justice'hands?. Who raised the tempest of wrath against your surety? Oh! it was your sins.
