Excerpt from Twelve Sermons, Preached at Verulam Mission Church, Lambeth, London
First, to our Lord's exclamation 0 Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee. Jerusalem, Jeru salem. What is the meaning of the word? We are told by those who are capable of giving an opinion, that it is a word made up of Jireh and Salem, which, together, mean, vision. Of peace, or the possession of peace. This, you will observe, is simply the meaning of the word. Of this Salem Melchizedek was king, - typical of another and a great King of Salem, evenjesus Christ. Now having ascertained the meaning of the word Jerusalem, we shall find that it is used in two senses in the Scriptures. It may be used in more, but these will serve our purpose.
