Description

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. 1900 edition. Excerpt: ...with Luke 3: 14, is in accordance with the fact that Herod was at this time making war on Aretas (Jos. Antiq. xviii, 5,1). Beheaded him.

Oaths and promises that lead us to sin are to be avoided.-" God would rather have us break our word than his word."---Gossner. 6. In all our trials and sorrows we will find true comfort if we go and tell Jesus. ORIENTAL LIGHTS OH THE LESSON. BY JOHN TANNOUS HADDAD.
