    "CHRISTIPEDIA™"

    Statement On Holy Scriptures;

    The ‘Lens’ Through Which All Knowledge Is Understood;

    THE WORD of GOD, AXIOM-1:

    "IF" there exists any such thing as 'The Word of God'; [and ALL evidence proves such does exist:]

    "THEN" by inherent definition - it must be:

      Holy, Inspired, Inerrant, Intrepid, Infallible, Infinitive, Invincible, Indestructible, Inexhaustible, Inalienable, Immutable, Implacable, Impossible-to-Improve: Eternal and Indubitable NEVER FAILING and ALL CONQUERING!

      DEDUCTING from the simple fact - that God equates His Word with Himself:

        "In the Beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God, . . ." John 1:1 (and other Scriptures),
    Thus 'GOD'S WORD' can have no lesser standard than stated above;


    "GOD'S WORD MUST" THEREFORE BE:

      As true in history, archeology, geography, Earth science, medical science, nutrition, gerontology, agriculture, botany, astronomy, physics, chemistry, climatology, government, law, psychology, sociology - and every subject it touches - as in Theology, Divinity and Doctrine:

    And "IF IT BE NOT" - true in all subjects mentioned above; and And "IF IT BE NOT"

      Holy, Inspired, Inerrant, Intrepid, Infallible, Infinitive, Invincible, Indestructible, Inexhaustible, Inalienable, Immutable, Implacable, Impossible-to-Improve: Eternal and Indubitable in EVERY FIELD OF KNOWLEDGE:
    Whatever else it may be, it cannot be ‘The Incomparable Word’ of the Great Creator God!

COMPENDIUM OF THE HOLY BIBLE:

THE CONTENTS OF EACH CHAPTER ARE GIVEN:

DESIGNED FOR MAKING THE READING AND STUDY OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES MORE EASY, PARTICULARLY TO THOSE THAT ARE IN THEIR YOUNGER YEARS

TO WHICH IS PREFIXED,

A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE HISTORY AND EXCELLENCY OF THE SCRIPTURES BY ALEXANDER CRUDEN, A. M.

AUTHOR OF THE (First Complete) CONCORDANCE TO THE BIBLE.

JOHN 5:39. SEARCH THE SCRIPTURES.

The chief design of using this Compendium is to give the reader a Summary View of the Holy Scriptures, which are not only above all philosophy, and far excelling all other books in the world, but also contain a most entertaining history of the most remarkable events that can be chronicled in any history whatsoever.

Any disregard shown to this inspired Book by any persons that profess the Christian religion, is greatly to be lamented: but surely those that are true Christians, and have experienced the grace of Cod in truth, will esteem it as

their only treasure, as being the rule of faith and practice, and a revelation the grace of God to fallen sinful creatures, and containing the charter for there hopes of eternal salvation through Jesus Christ.

I pray, reader, that the Blessed Spirit who indited the Scriptures, may make gracious impressions upon your heart in reading and searching them, that thereby you may be made wise unto salvation, through faith which is in Christ Jesus, Amen.

OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES.

THE word SCRIPTURE signifies Writing, and generally stands for the sacred hooks of the Old and New Testament, written by holy men, as they were inspired, instructed, and enabled by the Holy Ghost. 1 they are called The Scriptures, by Way of eminency and distinction, because they far excel all other writings, 2 Tim. iii. 10. "

All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine," to declare and confirm the truth; " for reproof," to convince of sin and confute errors ; " for correction," to reform the life ; " and for instruction in righteousness;" that is, to teach us to make a further progress in the way to holiness and happiness in leaven ; or to instruct in the true righteousness of Jesus Christ, in which we may appear with comfort therefore (;o

The Scriptures are often called, The Bible, that is, The Book, by way of excellency, as being,' the best book in the world, and far exceeding all other books.

For the Scriptures are a revelation Iroin (>od, and contain his whole will necessary to lie known for our salvation : and lliey will be held in tlie highest esteem, and be read and stu

The holy Scripture is divided into two books, which are commonly called. The (Old and New Testament, or The Old and New Covenant. The Old Testament was the old dispensation of the covenant of Grace and types and sacrifices, which represented the coming of the Messiah, who was the promised seed of the woman, and afterwards foretold to he of the family of Abraham, and of the tribe of Judah, and of the seed of David.

The New Testament, or the Gospel, is the new •lispensation of the covenant of (.-race, which fully sliews the promised Messiah to be come, and to have published his gospel, to have

1 here is no iiistoiy in the world so ancient as the Bible, nor is there any that sjives so early an

account of things. The Old Testament begins at the creation of the world, and acquaints us that Adam aixl F,ve were the first man and woman God made, and that he created them both in his own likeness, in a holy and happy stale, which is called. The state of innocence. It informs us of their sin asiainst God in eating the forbidden fruit, and of their being driven out of Paradise, and of the miserable state that sin l>rought man into, he having broken covenant with Go

Jhe Scriptuie informs us, that after the fall or sin of AdaiM, God was pleased to give him a gra- cious promise of a Messiah or Redeemer, " J hat the seed of the woman should bruise the serpent's head," that is, that .Usiis Christ, who was to as- simie the human nature in tlie fulness of time, should destroy the power anu wicked works of the devil.

'i he religion of man, alter the fall, was all the duties of the light of nature, which were required before : and besides these he was now called to repentance, faith or trust in the mercy of Go

'J he Scripture tells us, that mankind had pro- voked God by their sins, which were exceeding great, and that the world was destro\\\\ed by a fiood for their multiplied iniquities. Noah was saved in an ark, or great ship, or vessel, which Gixl taught him to build ; and all his family were with him, and some living creatures of every kind.

J he religion of Noah was the same with that of Adam afttr his fall, with some few additions. '1 he offering of sacrifices was to be continued. F'lcsh was given to man for food, as herbs were before. Bhxxl was lorhidilen to be eaten, the bloo

After the flood, tnankind did not freely divide themselves into several nations; but being all of one language, they built a chief city with a tower, that all men mi^lit lie joiuerl in one nation or king- .

Abraham had two sons, Ishmacl by Ilagar, and Isaac by Sarah his wife. Isaac was born, accord- ing to the promise of God, when they were lioth grown old. Isaac feared the (iod of his father • Abraham ; and his fattier sent afar, and took a wife for him. even Reliecca, out of his own family in Mesopotamia, tiecause he was unwilling he should marry among the wicked Canaaiiites, whom God ha

Isaac had liy Retiecca two sons. F.sauand .lacob F.sau sold his birthright for a messof ixittage when he was faint with bunting : and .lacob, by his mo- ther's contrivance, obtained his father's blessini;. .lacob was called Israel, because he prayed and prevaile

hipfory were Levi, Judtih, and Joseph. The priesthood in the followins times was coniinitted to Levi's f*inily. The kiniiiiom and {{overpmciit in future ages were promised cliietly to Judah's family.

.losepli's brethren hated him, and he was sold for R slave into I'-jiypt, where he became a ruler of tiie laud. His brethren envied him, because his father loved him and made him a coat of many colours, and because Joseph dreamed that they should bow down to him. By a false accusation, Joseph was cast into prison, and interpreted the ilreanisof some of his tellow-prisoners ; and when the interpretation proved true, then he was sent for to court, to interpret the king's dream about the seven years of plenty and seven years of famine.

In the famine, Joseph's brethren came to buy corn in Egypt, and bowed down to him accoiding to his dreams ; but he treated them roughly at first, as a great lord and a stranger, till their conscience smote them for their former cruelty to him : but afterwards he made himself known to them with niuch affection and tenderness. And he manifest- ed his forgiveness of them ; for he sent for his father, and bid his children bring all their families into Egypt, and he maintained them all during the faniuie. Jacob and Joseph died in Egypt; but according to their desire their bodies were carjied up and buried in the land of Canaan, in faith of the promise that their seed should possess that land.

The Israelites were afterwards made slaves in Egypt, and a new king, who knew not Joseph, sorely oppressed them, and endeavoured to destroy them : hut God heard their cry, and delivered them by the hand of Moses and Aaron, tipon Pharaoh's refusal to let llie people of Israel go, they brought ten plagues upon the king and upon all the land, by the authority and power of God.

At last Pharaoh released the Israelites; and the nuniber of them that went out of Egypt were six Imndreil thousand men, besides children, and all went on foot. When they were in distress, widi tlje Ked sea before tliem, and Pharaoh's army be- hind them, they cried unto God ; whereon Moses bid them " stand still, and see the salvation

I he Tsraclitts went wheresoever God guided them by the pillar of cloud and the pillar of tire. At every new dithculty, when they wanted nieator water, or met with enemies, they fell a murmur- ing against God and Moses: aiid they wandered forty years in ftie wilderness for their sins, before they came to the place God promised them.

While in the wilderness, about three months after their coming out of Egypt, God wrote with his own hand liie ten commandiiients in two tables of stone, and gave them to Moses. J he four first commandments contained their duty to God, and the six last their duty towards men. These ten comman

OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES.

. The Scripture gives an account of God's bring- ing the Israelites into the land of Canaan, under the ministration of Joshua, and of their govern- ment by Judges several hundred years ; and after that there is a narrative of their first tour kings, namely, Saul, David, Solomon, and llehoboam. In Kehoboam's days the nation was divided into two kingdoms, which were called the kingdom of Israel and the kingdom of .ludah. There are also particular records of the government of these two distinct kingdoms, under a long succession of theii own Itings, till they were both carried into cap- tivity by tlic kings of Assyria.

After this, the sacred history relates the return of many of them into their own land, and the re- building of the city of Jerusalem and the temple of God, and the settlement of the affairs Of church and state by Ezra and JJcheniiah, which is the end of the historical part of the Old Testament.

There is also a large and particular narrative of the lives or transactions of some extraordinary persons, several of which are much interwoven with the series of the history. But there are others which seem to stand separate and distinct, such as the affairs relating to Joi, a rich man in the east ; Jonah, a prophet in Israel ; and Either, the queen of Persia.

We have an account of the several prophets and messengers which were sent from God, on special occasions to reveal his mind and will to men. We have the writings of sixteen prophets, that is, of four greater and twelve lesser prophets. The four great prophets are Isaiah, Jerendah, Kzekiel, and Daniel. The twelve lesser prophets are, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Jonah, Micah, Nahum, IlabakKuK, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, and Malachi the last prophet. Malachi prophesied about 4C9 years before the condng of Christ, who assumed our nature about •ttXK) years after the creation of the world. God himself and his pro- phets, throughout all ages, foretold his coming as some great Deliverer, as the Messiah or anointed of God.

The chief subjects of the history of the New Testament are, our I^ni lesus Christ, the great Uedeemer and glorious Saviour ; John the Baptist, who was his forerunner; and the Apos- tles, who were his followers.

The great Messiah was Iwirn at Bethlehem of the tribe of Judah, according to the predictions and prophecies of him in the Old Testament. John the Baptist was his forerunner, who preaclied the doc- trine of repentance ami forgiveness of sins, and directe

Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God, veiled his divine glory, became man, and was born of Mary, who was a virgin, according to the prophecy of Isaiah. Jesus, being about thirty years of age, bei;an his ministry, and appeared with the marks of a divine commission, and the characters of the Messiah upon him. He healed the sick, be raised the dea

Jesus, after his resurrection, appeared to his apostles, continued on earth atmut forty days, and gave further instructions in the great things of tlia gospel. He appointed his disciples to meet hjin in Galilee ; he told them that all power in heaven and in earth was given into his hands ; he gave them their commission to preach the gospel to all nations ; and promised his presence with them, and a power to work miracles for the vindication of their doctrine. He commanded his apostles to tarry at Jerusalem till the promised Spirit should fall upon them. And on the day ot^ Pentecost which was ten days after the ascension of Christ the Spirit of God was sent down upon them ; ana upon their preaching of the resurrection and ex- altation of Christ, tliree thousand souls believed, and were added to the disciples of Clirist, and bap- tized on that day.

This was the proper beginning of fhe Christian or Gospel dispensation, the kingdom of Christ being set up in the world in its glo.-y at the |X)uring down of the Spirit, after his resurrection, and Ins • exaltation to the government of the world and the church. 1 he dispensation, during the life of Christ, was a medium between the Jewish and Christian dispensations.

'Ihe apostles, after Christ's ascension, published the gospel he had preached, namely, pardon ot sin and everlasting life to those that repent and believe in him, whether Jews or Gentiles, and | pronounced the punishments of hell upon the im- penitent and unbelieving. The apostles, in their epistles to the Christian churches, often mention the great article of the gospel, the redemption by Christ's death, and the atonement made for sin by his sufferings, and it shines every where throuiiB the epistles of St. Paul.

Ill the gospels, as well as epistles, faith, or be- lieving in Jesus Christ, is required, as the way and method of being a partaker of the blessings of salvation ; for without faith there is no salvation, according to the gospel. This faith unites the soul to Christ, and makes the believer a member of Christ's mystical body. Faith is wrought in the soul by the Spirit of God, who convinces him of the evil and danger of sin, which makes him ob- noxious to the law of God ; and seeing no othei way of hell), he applies to Christ to be bis pro- phet, priest, and king ; receives him as proposed in the liospel, and trusts and relies upon him and his righteousness for pardon and salvation. And where this faith is, it is attended with repentance and holiness, which give a nieelness for heaven; ami a true faith in Jesus Christ and his righteous- ness may be said to entitle the believer to the heavenly kingdom. " If any man be in Christ, he is a new creature." Justification and sancti- fication are blessings connected together, and gra- ciously bestowed upon one and the same person.

Ihe New Testament is the last dispensation ot the Covenant of Grace : and it may be called Mew, because it is never to wax old or be abolish- ed ; and this is eviilent, because it concludes with a iJiomise of Christ's second coming at the end of the world. Uev. xxii. 50. "Surely I come quickly : Amen. Even so, come. Lord Jesus. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all." Allien.

the sendiae down of tlie IIoI>; Ghost, promises after tew days to send it ; by virtue wliereof they should be witnesses unto him, even to the utmost parts of the earth. 9 After his ascension they are warned by two angels to depart, and to set their minds upon his second coming. 12 I'hey accord- ingly return, and giving tliemselves to prayer, choose Matthias apostle m the place of Judas.

II. 1 The apostles filled with the Holy Ghost, and speaking divers languages, are admired by some, and derided by others. 14 Whom Peter disprov- ing, and shewing that the apostles spake by the power of the Holy Ghost, that Jesus was risen from the dead, ascended into heaven, had poured down the same Holy Ghost, and was the Messias, a man known to them to be approved of God. by his miracles, wonders, and signs, and not crucified without his determinate counsel and foreknow- ledge : 37 he baptizeth a great number that ■were converted, 14 who afterwards devoutly and charitably converse together : the apostles working many miracles, and God daily increas- ing his church.

III. 1 Peter preacheth to the people that came to see a lame man restored to his feet, 12 and pro- fesses the cure not to have been wrought by his or John's own power, or holiness, but by God, and his Son Jesus, and through faith in his name : IS withal reprehending them forcrucifjjing Jesus.

17 Which because they did it through ignorance, and that thereby were fulfilled God's determinate counsel, and the Scriptures, 19 he exhorts them by repentance and faith to seek remission of their sins, and salvation in the same Jesus.

IV. 1 The rulers of the Jews, offended with Peter's sermon, 4 (though thousands of the people were converted that heard the word,) imprison him and John. 5 After, upon examination, Peter boldly avouching the lame man' to be healed by the name of Jesus, and that by the same Jesus only we must be eternally saved, 13 they commanded him and John to preach no more in that name, adding threatenings also. 23 Whereupon the church goes to prayer: 31 and God, by moving the place where they were assembled, testified that tie heard their prayer, confirming the church ■with the gift of the Holy Ghost, and with mutual love and charity.

v. 1 After that Ananias and Sapphira his wife, for their hypocrisy, at Peter's rebuke, had fallen down dead, 12 and that the rest of the apostles had wrought many miracles ; 14 to the increase of the faith: 17 the apostles are again imprison- ed, 19 but delivered by an angel, bidding them to preach openly to all. 21 When, after their teach- ing accordingly in the temple, 29 and before the council, .33 they are in danger to be killed ; through the advice of Gamaliel, a great counsellor among the Jews, they are kept alive, 40 and only beaten : for which they glorify God, and cease no day from preaching.

VI. 1 The apostles, desirous to have the poor regard- ed for their bodily sustenance, as also careful themselves to dispense the word of God, the food of the soul, 3 appoint the office of deaconship to seven chosen men : .38 of whom Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, is one : 12 who is taken of those whom he confounded in disputing, 13 and falsely accused of blasphemy against the law and the temple.

VII. 1 Stephen permitted to answer to the accusa- tion of blasphemy, 2 shews that Abraham wor- shipped God rightly, and how God chose the

, fathers, 20 before Moses was born, and before the tabernacle and temple were built : .37 that , Moses himself witnessed of Christ : 44 and that . all outward ceremonies were ordained according . to the heavenly pattern, to last but for a time : 51 '•eprehending their rebellion, and murdering of Christ, the Just One, whom the prophets fore- told should come into the world : 54 whereupon they stone him to death ; who commends his soul to Jesus, and humbly prays for them.

VIII. 1 Stephen's burial. 5 The church planted in Samaria, By Philip the deacon, who preached, did miracles, and baptized many, among the rest Simon the sorcerer, a great seducer of the people. 14 Peter and John come to confirm and enlarge the church : where by prayer and imposition of hands giving the- Holy Ghost, 18 when Simon ■would nave bought the like power of them, 20 Peter sharply reproves his hypocrisy and covet- ousQess, and exhorts him to repentance : Peter and John, preaching the word, return to Jeru- salem. 26 The angel sends Philip to teach and baptize the Ethiopian eunuch.

IX. 1 Saul going towards Damascus, 4 is struck down to the earth, 10 is called to the apostleship,

18 and is baptized by Ananias. 20 He preaches Christ boldly. 23 The Jews lay wait to kill him ; 29 so do the Grecians; but he escapes Iwth. 31 The church having rest, Peter heals iEneasofthe palsy, 36 and restores Tabitha to life.

X. 1 Cornelius, a devout man, 5 being command- ed by an angel, sends for Peter: 11 who by a vision, 15, 20 is taught not to despise the Gen- tiles. 34 As he preaches Christ to Cornelius and his company, 44 the Holy Ghost falls on them, 48 and they are baptized.

XI. 1 Peter, being accused for going in to the Gen- , tiles, 5 makes his defence, 18 which is accepted.

19 The gospel being spread into Phenice, and Cyprus, and Antioch, Barnabas is sent to confirm them. 26 The disciples there are first called Christians. 27 They send relief to the bretliren in Judea in time of famine.

XII. 1 King Herod persecutes the Christians, kills James, and imprisons Peter, whom an angel de- livers upon the prayers of the church. 20 In his pride, takin" to himself the honour due to God, he is struck by an angel, and dies miserably. 24 Aftei his death the word of God prospers.

XIII. 1 Paul and Barnabas are chosen to go to the Gentiles. 7 Of SergiusPaulus, and Elymas the sorcerer. 14 Paul preaches at Antioch, that Jesus is Christ. 42 The Gentiles believe ; 45 but the Jews gainsay and blaspheme ; 46 whereupon they turn to the Gentiles. 48 As many as were ordain- ed to life believed.

XIV. 1 Paul and Barnabas are persecuted from Iconium. 7 At Lystra Paul heals a cripple ; whereupon they are reputed as gods. 19 Paul is stoned. 21 They pass through divers churches, confirming the disciples in faith and patience:

26 returning to Antioch, they report what God had done with them.

XV. 1 Great dissension arises about circumcision. 6 The apostles consult about it, 22 and send their determination by letters to the churches. 36 Paul and Barnabas, thinking to visit the brethren to- gether, fall at strife, and depart asunder.

XVI. 1 Paul having circumcised Timothy, 7 and being called by the Spirit from one country to another, 14 converteth Lydia, 16 casteth out a spirit of divination : 19 for which cause he and Silas are whipped and imprisoned. 25 The prison doors are opened. 31 The jailor is converted, 37 and thev are delivered.

XVII. 1 Paul preaches at Thcssalonica : 4 where some believe, and others persecute him : 10 he is sent to Berea, and preacheth there. 13 Being per- secuted at Thessalonica, 15 hecomethto Athens, and disputes, and preaches the living God to them unknown, 34 whereby many are converted unto Christ.

XVII 1 . 3 Paul labours with his hands, and preaches at Corinth to the Gentiles : 9 the Lord enconraees him in a vision : 12 he is accused before Gailio the deputy, but is dismissed. 18 Afterwards, passing from city to city, he strengthens the disci- ples. 24 Apollos, heing more perfectly instructed by Aquila and Priscilla, 28 preaches Christ with great efficacy.

XIX. 6 The Holy Ghost is given by Paul's hands. 9 The Jews blaspheme his doctrine, which is con- firmed by miracles. 13 The Jewish exorcists, 16 are beaten by the devil. 19 Coiyuring-books are burnt. 24 Demetrius, for love of gain, raiseth an uproar against Paul, 35 which is appeased by the town-clerk.

XX. 1 Paul goes to Macedonia. 7 He celebrates the Ixird's supper, and preaches. 9 Eutychus being killed by a fall, 10 is raised to life. 17 At Miletus Paul calls the elders together, tells them what shall befall to himself, 28 commits God's flock to them, 29 warns them of false teachers, 32 com- mends them to God, 36 prays with them.and goes his wav.

XXI. 1 taul will not by any means be dissuaded from going to Jerusalem. 9 Philip's daughters prophetesses. 17 Paul comes to Jerusalem : 27 where he is apprehended, and in great danger, 31 but by the chief captain is rescued, and permit- ted to speak to the people.

XXII. I Paul declares at large, how he was con- verted to the faith, 17 and called to his apostle- ship. 22 At the very mentioning of the Gentiles, the people exclaim on him. 24 He should have been scourged ; 25 but claiming the privilege of a Roman, he escapes.

XXIII. 1 AsPaul pleadshiscause, 2 Ananias com- mands them to smite him. 7 Dissension among his accusers. 11 God encourages him. 14 The Jews' lying in wait for Paul, 20 is declared unto the chief captain. 27 He sends him to Felix the governor.

XXIV. 2 Paul being accused by Tertullus the oratoo, 10 answers for his life and doctrine. 24 He preaches Christ to the governor and his wife. S6 The governor hopes for a bribe, but in vain :

27 at last going out of his office, he leaves Paul in prison.

XXV. 1 The Jews accuse Paul before Festus. 8 He answers for himself, 11 and appeals to Caesar. 14 Afterwards Festus opens his matter to king Agrippa, 23 and he is brought forth. 25 Festus declares him to have done nothing wortliy of death.

XXVI . 2 Paul, in the presence of Agrippa, de- clares his life from his childhood, 12 and how miraculously he was converted and called to his apostleship. 24 Festus charges him to be mad, whereunto he answers modestly. 28 Agrippa is almost persuade

XXVII. 1 Paul shipping towards Kome, 10 fore- tells the danger of the voyage, 11 but is not be- lieved. 14 rhey are tossed to and fro with tempest, 41 and suffer shipwreck, 22, 34, 44 yet all come safe to land.

XXVIII. 1 Paul, after his shipwreck, is kindly entertained by the Barbarians. 5 The viper on his hand hurts him not. 8 He heals many diseases in the island. 11 They depart towards Home. 17 He declares to the Jews the cause of his coming. 24 After his preaching some were persuaded, and some believed not : 30 yet he preaches tliere two years.

ROMANS.

I. Paul commends his calling to the Bomans, 9 and his desire to come to them. 16 What his gospel is, and the righteousness which it shews. 18 God is angry with all manner of sin. 21 What were the sins of the Gentiles.

II. 1 They that sin, though they condemn it in others, cannot excuse themselves, 6 and much less escape the judgment of God, 9 whether they be Jews or Gentiles. 14 The Gentiles cannot escape, 17 nor yet the Jews, 25 whom their circumcision shall not profit, if they keep not the law.

Ill.l The Jews' prerogative ; 3 which they have not lost ; 9 howbeit the law convinces them also of sin. 20 Therefore uo flesh is justified by the law.

28 but all, without difference, by faith only : 31 and yet the law is not abolished.

IV. 1 Abraham's faith was imputed to him for righteousness, 10 before he was circumcised. IS By faith only he and his seed received the pro- mise. 16 Abraham is the father of all that be- lieve. 24 Our faith also shall be imputed to us for righteousness.

V. 1 Being justified by faith, we have peace with

reconciled. 12 As sin and death came by Adam, 17 so much more righteousness and life by Jesus Christ. 20 Where sin abounded, grace did su-

ferabound. . 1 We may not live in sin, 2 for we are dead unto it, 3 as appears by our baptism. 12 Let not sin reign any more, 18 because we have yielded ourselves to the service of righteousness, 23 and for that deatli is the wages of sin.

VII. 1 No law hath power over a man longer than he liveth. 4 But we are dead to the law. 7 Yet is not the law sin, 12 but holy, just, and good, 16 as I acknowledge who am grieved because I cannot keep it.

VI I I . 1 They that are in Christ, and live according to the Spirit, are free from condemnation. 5, 13 What harm comes of the flesh, 6, 14 and what good of the Spirit : 17 and what of being God's children, 19 whose glorious deliverance all things long for. 29 It was beforehand decreed from God. .38 What can sever us from his love .'

IX. 1 Paul is sorry for the Jews. J All the seed of Abraham were notthe children of the promise. 18 God hath mercy upon whom he will. 21 The pot- ter may do with his clay what he list. 25 The calling of the Gentiles, and rejecting of the Jews, were foretold . 32 The cause why so few Jews em- braced the righteousness of faith.

X. 5 The Scripture shewelh the difference betwixt the righteousness of the law, and that of faith, H and that all, both Jew and Gentile, tiiat believe, shall not be confounded, 18 and tliat the Gentiles shall receive the word, and believe. 19 Israel was not ignorant of these things.

XI. I God hath not cast off all Israel. 7 Some were elected, though the rest were hardened. 16 There is hope of their conversion. 18 The Gentiles may not insult upon them : 26 for there is a promise of their salvation. 33 God's judgments are unseaich- able.

XII. 1 God's mercies must move us to please God. 3 Not to think highly of oneself, 6 but attend every one on that calling wherein he is placed. 9 Love without dissimulation, 19 Revenge is espe- cially forbidden.

XIII. 1 Subjection, and many other duties, we owe to the magistrates. 8 I^ve is the fulfilling of the law. 11 Gluttony and drunkenness, and the works of darkness, are out of season in the time of the gospel.

XIV. 3 Men may not contemn nor condemn each other for things indifferent ; 13 but take heed that they give no offence in them : 15 for that the apostle proves unlawful by many reasons.

XV. 1 The strong must bear with the weak. 2 We may not please ourselves, 3 for Christ did not so, 7 but receive one another, as Christ did us all, 8 both Jews, 9 and Gentiles. 15 Paul excuseth his writing, 28 and promises to see thetn, S3 and de- sires their prayers.

XVI. 3 Paul wills the brethren to greet many, 17aod advises them to take heed of those which cause dissension and offences, 21 and after sundry sa- lutations, ends with praise and tlianks to God.

I CORINTHIANS.

I. After his salutation and thanksgiving, 10 he ex- horts them to unity, 12 and reproves their dis- sensions. 18 God destroys the ■wisdom of the wise, 21 by the foolishness ot preaching, 26 and calls not the wise, mighty, and noble, 27, 28 but the foolish, weak, and nie^ of no account,

II. 1 Hedeclaresthat his preaching, though it bring not excellency of speech, or of 4 human wisdom ; yet consists in the 4, 5 power of God ; and so far excels 6 the wisdom of this world, and 9 human sense, as that 14 the natural man cannot under- stand it.

III. 2 Milk is fit for children. 3 Strife and division are argumentsofa fleshly mind. 7 He that plants, and he that watei's, is nothing. 9 The ministers are God's fellow-workmen. 11 Christ the only foundation. 16 Men the temples of Ged, 17 which must be kept holy. 19 The wisdom of this world is foolishness with God.

IV. 1. In what account the ministersought to be had. 7 We have nothing which we have not received. 9 'I'he apostles spectacles to the world, angels, and men, 13 the filth and off-scouriUR of the world ; 15 yet our fathers in Christ, 16 whom we ought to follow.

V. 1 The incestuous person, 6 is cause rather of shame unto them, than of rejoicing. 7 The old leaven is to be purged out. , 10 Heinous offenders are to be shunned and avoided.

VI. 1 The Corinthians must not vex their brethren, in going to law with them ; 6 enpecially under infidels. 9 The unrighteous shall not inherit the kingdom of God. 15 Our txidies are the members of Christ, 19and temples of the Holy Ghost: 16, 17 they must not therefore be defiled.

VII. 2 Of marriage, 4 shewing it to be a remedy against fornication ; 10 and that the bond thereof ought not lightly to be dissolved. 18, 20 Fvery man must be content with his vocation. 25 Vir- ginity wherefore to be embraced, 35 and for what respects we may either marry, or abstain from marrying.

of our brethren : 11 bnt must bndle our know-

• ledge with charity. ^

JX. 1 He shews his liberty, 7 and that the minister oaght to live by the gospel : 15 yet that himself hath of his own accord abstained 18 to be either chargeable to them. 11 or offensive to any in mat- ters indifferent. 24 Our life is like a race.

X. I The sacraments of the Jews, 6 are types of ours, 7 and their punishments, 11 examples for us. 14 We must flee from idolatry, 21 and not make the Lord's table the table of devils : 24 and in things indifferent we should have regard to the weak brethren.

XI. 1 He reproves them, because in holy assem- blies 4 their men prayed with their heads cover- ed, and 6 their women with heads uncovered: 17 and because generally their meetings were not for the better, but for the worse ; as, 21 namely, in profanins with their own feasts the Lord's supper. 23 Lastly, he calls them to the first institution thereof.

XII. 1 Spiritual gifts 4 are divers, 7 yet all to

Profit withal ; 8 and to that end are diversely estowed : 12 that by the like proportion, as the members of a natural body tend all to the 16 mutual decency, 22 service, and 26 succour of the same body ; 27 so we should do one for an- other, to make up the mystical body of Christ.

XIII. 1 All gifts, 2, 3 how excellent soever, are nothing worth without charity. 4 The praises thereof, and 13 prelation before hope and faith.

XIV. 1 Prophecy is commended, 2, 3, 4 and pre- ferred before speaking with tongues, 6 by a com- parison drawn from musical instruments. 12 Both must be referred to edification, 22 as to their true and proper end. 26 The true use of each is taught, 29 and the abuse taxed. 34 Women are forbidden to speak in the church.

XV. 3 By Christ's resurrection, 12 he proves the necessity of ours, against all such as deny the resurrection of the body. 21 The fruit .35 and manner thereof, 51 and of the changing them that shall be found alive at the last day.

XVI. 1 He exhorts them to relieve the want of the brethren at Jerusalem ; 10 commends Timothy ; 13 and after friendly admonitions, 16 shuts up bis epistle with divers salutations.

II CORINTHIANS,

I. The apostle encourages them against troubles, by the comforts and deliverances which God had given him, as in all his afflictions, 8 so particu- larly in his late danger in Asia: 12 and calling both his own conscience, and theirs, to witness, of his sincere manner of preaching the immuta- ble truth of the gospel, 15 he excuseth his not coming to them, as proceeding not of lightness, but ofhis lenity towards them.

II. 1 Having shewed the reason why he came not to them, 6 he requires them to forgive and to comfort that excommunicated person, 10 even as himself also, upon his true repentance, had for- given him : 12 declaring withal why he departed from Troas to Macedonia, 14 and the happy suc- cess which God gave to his preaching in all places.

III. 1 Lest their false teachers should charge him with vain glory, he shews the faith and graces of the Corfnthians, to be a sufficient commenda- tion of his ministry. 6 Whereupon entering a comparison between the ministers of the law and of the gospel, 12 he proves that his ministry is so far the more excellent, as the gospel of life and liberty is more glorious than the law of con- demnation.

IV. 1 He declares how he hath used all sincerity and faithful diligence in preaching the gospel ; 7 and how the troubles and persecutions which he daily endured for the same, did redound to the praise of God's power, 12 to the benefit of the church. If) and to the apostle's own eternal glory.

V. 1 That in his assured hope of immortal glory, 9 and in expectation of it, and of the general judgment, he labours to keep a good conscience, 12 not that he may herein boast of himself, 14 but as one that having received life from Christ, lives as a new creature to Christ only, 18 and by his ministrv of reconciliation, to reconcile others also in Christ to God.

VI. 1 That he hath approved himself a faithful minister of Christ, both by his exhortations, 3 and by integrity of life, 4 and by patient en- during all kinds of afniction and disgraces for the gospel. 10 Of which he speaks the more boldly amongst them, because his heart is open to them, 13 and he expects the like affection from them again : 14 exhorts them to flee the so- ciety and pollutions of idolaters, as being them- selves temples of the living God.

VI I. 1 He proceeds in exhorting them to purity of life, 2 and to bear him like affection as he doth to them. 3 Whereof, lest they might seem to doubt, he declares what comfort he took in his afflictions, by the report which Titus gave of their godly sorrow, which his former epistle had wrought in them, 13 and of their loving kindness and obedience towards Titus, answerable to his former boastings of them.

VIII. 1 He stirs them up to a liberal contribution for the poor saints at Jerusalem, by the example of the ftlacedonians, by commenaation of their former forwardness, 9 by the example of Christ, 14 and by the spiritual profit that should redound to themselves thereby : 16 commending to them the integrity and willingness of Titus, and those other brethren, who, upon his request, exhoiia- tion, and commendation, were purposely come to them for this business.

IX. 1 He yields the reason why, though he knew their forwardness, yet he sent Titus and his bre- thren beforehand : 6 and he proceeds in stirring them up to bountiful alms, as being but a kind of cowing of seed, 10 which shall return a great in-

718

crease to them, 1.3 and occasion a great sacrifice of thanksgiving unto God.

X. 1 Against the false apostles, who disgraced the weakness of his person and bodily presence, besets out the spiritual might and authority, with which he is armed against all adverse powers ; 7 assur- ing them tliat at his coming he will be found as mighty in word, as he is now in writing, being absent. 12 And withal taxingthem for extending themselves beyond their compass, and vaunting themselves of other men's labours.

XI. 1 Out of his jealousy over the Corinthians, who seemed to make more account of the false apostles than of him, he entereth into a forced commendation of himself, 5 of his equality with the chief apostles, 7 of his preaching the gospel to them freely, and without their charge: 13 shewing that he was not inferior to those deceit- ful workers in any legal prerogative ; 23 and in the service of Christ, and in all kind of suffer- ings for his ministry, far superior.

XII. 1 For commending of his apostleship, though he might glory of his wonderful revelations, 9 yet he rather chooses to glory of his infirmities, 11 blaming them for forcing him to this vain boasting. 14 He promises tocometo them again ; but yet altogether in the afl''ection of a father, 20 although he fears he shall, to his grief, find many offenders and public disorders there.

XIII. 1 He threateneth severity, and the power of his apostleship, against obstinate sinners : 5 and advising them to a trial of their faith, 7 and to reformation of their sins before his coming, 11 he concludeth his epistle with a general exhortation and a prayer.

GALATIANS.

I. He wonders that they have so soon lel^ him, and the "ospel ; 8 and accurses those that preach another gospel than he did. 11 He learned the gospel not of men, but of God : 13 and shews what he was before his calling, 17 and what he did presently after it.

II. 1 He shews when he went up again to Jerusa- lem, and for what purpose : 3 and that Titus was not circumcised •. 11 and that he resisted Peter, and told him the reason 14 why he and others, being Jews, do believe in Christ to be justified by faith, and not by works : 2(1 and that they live not in sin, who are so justified.

III. 1 He asks what moved them to leave the faith, and hang upon the law. 6 They that believe are justified, 9 and blessed with Abraham. 10 And this he shews by many reasons.

IV. 1 We were under the law till Christ came, as the heir is under his guardian till he be of age ; 5 but Christ freed us from the law ; 7 therefore we are servants no longer to it. 14 He remembers their good-will to him, and his to them ; 22 and shews that we are the sons of Abraham by tlie free-woman.

V. 1 He moves them to stand in their liberty, 3 and not obser\\\'e circumcision ; but rather love, which is the sum of the law: 19 he reckoneth up the woi'KSof the flesh, 22 and the fruits of the Spirit ; 25 ann exnorts to walk in the Spirit.

VI. 1 He moves them to deal mildly with a brother that hath slipped. 2 and to bear one another's burdens ; 6 to be liheral to their teachers ; 9 and not weary of welWoing: 12 he shews what they intend that preach circumcision : 14 he glories in nothing, save the cross of Christ.

EPHESIANS.

I. After the salutation, 3 and thanksgiving for the Ephesians, 4 he treats of our election, 6 and adoption by grace, 11 which is the true and pro- per fountain of man's salvation ; 13 and because the height of this mystery cannot easily be at- tained unto by man's power, 16 he prays that they may come 18 to the full knowledge and 20 possession thereof in Christ.

II. 1 By comparing what we were 3 by nature, with what we are by grace ; 10 he declares, that we are made for good works : and 13 being brought near by Christ, should not live as 11 Gentiles, and 12 foreigners in time past, but as 19 citizens with the saints, and the family of God.

1 1 1. 5The hidden mystery ,6 that the Gentiles should be saved, was marie known to Paul by revelation : 8 and to him was that grace given, that 9 he should preach it. 13 He desires them not to faint for his tribulation, 14 and prays 19 that they may perceive the great love of Christ toward them.

IV. 1 He exhorts to unify; 7 and declares that God therefore gives divers 11 gifts to men, tliat his church might be 13 edified, and 15 grow up in Christ. 18 He calls them from the impurity of the Gentiles, 24 to put on the new man ; 25 to cast off lying, and 29 conupt communication.

V. 2 After general exhoitations to love, 3 to flee fornication, 4 and all uncleanness, 7 not to con- verse with the wicked, 15 to walk warily, and to be 18 filled with the Spirit, 22 he descends to the particular duties, how wives ought to obey their husbands, 25 and husbands ought to love their wives, .32 even as Christ doth his church.

VI. 1 The duty of children to parents, 5 and ser- vants to masters. 10 Our life is a warfare, 12 not only against flesh and blood, but also spiritual enemies. 13 The complete armour of a christian, 18 and how it ought to be used. 21 Tychicus is commended.

PHILIPPIANS.

I. Paul testifieth his thankfulness to God, and his love towards them, for the fruits of their faith, and fellowship in his sufferings, 9 daily praying to him for their increase in grace : 12 he shews w-hat good the faith of Christ had received by his troubles at Rome, 21 and how ready he is to glorify Christ either by bis life or death: 27

exhorting them to unity, S8 and to fortitude in

persecution.

II. 1 He exhorts them to unity, and to all humble- ness of mind, by the example of Christ's humility and exaltation : 12 to a careful proceeding in the way of salvation, that they be as lights to tlie wicked world, 16 and comforts to him their apos- tle, who is now ready to be offered up to God. 15 He hopes to send Timothy to them, whom he greatly commends, 25 as Epaphroditus also, whom he presently sends to them.

III. 1 He warns them to t>eware of the false teacher? of the circumcision, 4 shewing that himself hath greater cause tlian they to trust in the righteous- ness of the law ;7 which notwithstanding he counts as dung and loss to gain Christ and his righteous- ness, 12 therein acknowledging his own imper- fection. 15 He exhorts them to be thus minded. 17 to imitate him, 18 and to decline the ways of carnal men.

IV. 1 From particular admonitions, 4 he proceeds to general exhortations, 10 shewing how he re- joiced at their liberality towards him lying in pri- son, not so much for the supply of his own wants, as for the grace of God in them : 19 and concludes with prayer and salutations.

COLOSSIANS.

I. After salutation, Paul thanks God for their faith,

7 confirms the doctrine of Epaphras, 9 prays fur- ther for their increase in glace, 14 describes the true Christ, 21 encourageth them to receive Jesus Christ, and commends his own ministry.

II. 1 He still exhorts them to be constant in Christ,

8 to beware of philosophy and vain traditions, 18 worshipping of angels, 20 and legal ceremonies, which are ended in Christ.

III. 1 He shews where we should seek Christ. 5 He exhorts to mortification, to put oflF the old man, and to put on Christ ; 12 exhorting to charity, humility, and other several duties.

IV. 1 He exhorts them to be fervent in prayer, 5 to walk wisely toward them that are notyetcometo the true knowledge of Christ. 10 He salutes them, and wishes them all prosperity.

I THESSALONIANS.

I. The Thessalonians are given to understand both how mindful of them Paul was at all times in thanksgiving and prayer; 5 and also how well he was persuaded of the truth and sincerity of their faith and conversion to God.

II. 1 In what manner the gospel was brought and preached to the Thessalonians, and in what sort also they received it. 18 A reason is rendered both why Paul was so long absent from them, and also why he was so desirous to see them.

III. 1 Paul testifies his great love to the Thessalo- nians ; partly by sending Timothy unto them to strengthen and comfort them ; partly by re- joicing in their well-doing ; 10 and partly by praying for them, and desiring a safe coming unto them.

IV. 1 Heexhortsthem to walk in all manner of god liness, 6 to live holy and justly, 9 to love one an other, 1 1 and quietly to follow their own business ; 13 and last of all to sorrow moderately for the dead : 15 and to his last exhortation is annexed a brief description of the resurrection, and second coming of Christ to judgment.

V. 1 He proceeds in the former description of Christ's coming to judgment, 14 and gives divers precepts, 23 and so concludes the epistle.

II THESSALONIANS.

I. Paul certifies them of the good opinion which he had of their faith, love, and patience ; 11 and therewithal useth divers reasons for the comforting of them in persecution, whereof the chief is taken from the righteous ju

II. 1 He wills them to continue stedfast in the truth received ; 3 shews that there shall be a de- parture from the faith, 8 and a discovery of an- tichrist, l)efore the day of the Lord come : 15 and thereupon repeats his former exhortation, and prays for them.

II I . 1 He begs their prayers for himself, 3 and testi- fies what confidence he has in them, 5 makes re- quest to God in ttieir behalf, 6 gives them divers precepts, especially to shun idleness ami ill com- pany, 16and lastoFall concludes with prayer and salutation.

I TIMOTHY.

I. Timothy is put in mind of the charge which was given unto him by Paul at his going to Mace- donia, 5 of the right use and end of the law, 1 1 ot Paul'scalling to be an apostle, 20 and Hymeneus and Alexander.

II. 1 That it is meet to pray and give thanks for all men, and the reason why. 9 How women should be attired. 12They are not permitted to teach. 15 They shall be saved, notwithstanding the testimo- nies of God's wrath, in childbirth, if they continue in faith.

III. How bishops, deacons, and their wives, should be qualified ; 14 and to what end Paul wrote to Timothy of these things. 15 Of the church, and the blessed truth therein taught and professed.

IV. 1 He foretells that in the latter times there shall be a departure from the failh. 6 And to the end that Timothy might not fail in doing his duty, he furnishes him with divers precepts relating thereto.

V. 1 Rules to be observed in reproving. 3 Of wi- dows. 17 Of elders. 23 A precept for Timothy's health. 24 Some men's sins go before unto judg- ment, and some men's do follow after.

VI . 1 Of the duty of senants. 3 Not to have fellow- ship with new-fangled teachers. 6 Godliness is great gain, 10 and love of money the root of all evil, 11 What Timothy is to flee, and wliat to

follow ; 17 and whereof to admonish the rich. CO To keep the purity ot true doctriue, and to avoid protaue jau^liugs.

II TIMOTHY.

I. Paul's love to Timothy, and the unfeigned faith which was in Timothy himself, his mother, and grandmother. 5 He is exhorted to stir up the gift of God which was in him, 8 to be stedlast and patient in persecuticni, 13 and to persist in the form and truth ot that doctrnie wliich he had learned of liim. 15 Pliy^'ellusand Hern;ogeiies, and such like, are noted, and Onesiphorus is hif-hly commended.

II. He is exhorted again to constancy and peise- verance, and to do the duty of a faithful servant of the l^rd in dividing the word aright, and shunning prolane and vain tiabblings. 17 Ot Hymeneus and Philetus. 19 The foundation of tlie Lord is sure. 2'-' He is tausht whereot to lie- ware, and wliat to follow alter, and in what sort the servant of the Lord ought to behave himself.

III. 1 He advertises him of the times to come, 6 describes the enemies of the truth, 10 propounds unto him his own example, 16 and commends the holy t*criptures.

IV. 1 He exhorts him to do his duty with all care and diligence, 6 certifies him of the nearness of his death, 9 wills him to come speedily unto iiim, and 11 to bring .Mark with him, and cer- tain other things which he wrote for, 14 warns liini to beware of Alexander the smith, lii in- forms him what had befallen him at his Rist an- swering, 19 and soon alter he concludes.

TITUS.

I. For what end Titus was left in Crete. 6 How tliey that are to be chosen miuisteis ought to be qualitied. 11 1 he mouths of evil teachers to be stopped : 12 and what manner of men they be.

II. 1 Directions given unto 1 itus, both for his doc- trine and lite, y Of the duty of servants, and, in general, of all Christians.

III. I 1 itus is yet further directed by Paul both concerning the things he should teach, and not teach. 10 He is willed also to reject obstinate heretics : 12 which done, he appoints him both time and place, wherein he should come unto him, and so concludes.

PHILEMON.

Paul rejoices to hear of the faith and love of Phi- lemon ; 9 whom he desires to forgive his servant Ouesimus, and lovingly to receive him again.

HEBREWS.

I. Christ in these last times coming to us from the Father, 4 is preferied above the angels, Loth in person and ottice.

II. 1 \\\\Ve ought to be obedient to Christ Jesus, 5 and that because he vouchsafed to take our na- ture upon him, 14 as it was necessary.

III. 1 Christ is more worthy than .Moses; 7 there- fore if we believe not in him, we sh^ll be more worthy of puuishn)ent tlian hard-hearted Israel.

IV. 1 1 he rest ot Chiistiar.s is attained by faith.

12 The power of God's word. 14 By our High- priest, Jesus the Son of God, subject to mhrmi- ties, but not to sin, 16 we must and may go boldly to the throne of grace.

V. 1 The authority and honour of our .Saviour's priesthood. 11 Negligence in the knowledge thereof is reproved.

VI. 1 He exhorts not to fall back from the faith, 11 but to be stedfast, 12 diligent, and patient to wait upfin God, 13 because God is most sere in his promise.

VI I. 1 Christ Jesus is a priest after the order of Melchisedec, 11 and so tar more excellent than the priests of Aaron's order.

VIII. 1 By the eternal priesthood of Christ, the Levitical priesthood of Aaron is abolished, 7 and the temporal covenant with the fathers, by the eternal covenant of the gospel.

IX. 1 The description of the rights and bloody sa- crihces of the law, 11 far interior to the dignity and perfection of the blood and sacrifice of Christ.

XIII. 1 Divers admonitions, as to charity, 4 to honest life, 5 to avoid rovetousness, 7 'o regard (iod's preachers, 9 to take heed of strange doc- trines, 10 to confess Christ, 16 to give alms, 17 to obey governors, 18 to pray for the apostle. 20 The conclusion.

JAMES.

I. V-'e are to rejoice under the cross, 5 to ask wis- dom of (iod, 13 and in our trials not to impute our weakness or sins unto him, 22 Imt rather to hearken to the word, to meditate in it, and do thereafter: 26 otherwise men may seem, but never be, truly religious.

II. 1 It is not agreeable to Christian profession to regard the rich, and to despise the poor brethren :

13 rather we are to t)e lovmg and merciful ; 14 and not to boast of faith where no fruits are, 17 which is but a dead faith, 19 the faith of devils, 21 and not of Abraham, 25 and Hahab.

III. 1 We are not rashly or airogantly to reprove Others, 5 but rather to bridle tlie tongue, a little

member, buta powerful instrument of much good, and great harm. 13 1 hey who be truly wise, be mild and peaceable without envying and strife.-

IV. 1 We are to slrive against covetousness, 4 in- temperance, 5 pride, 11 detraction, and rash judg- ment of others : 13 and not to be confident in the good success of worloly business ; but mindful ever of the uncertainty of this lite, to commit our- selves and all our affairs to God's providence.

V. 1 \\\\\\\\ icked rich men are to fear God's vengeance. 7 We ought to be patient in afflictions, after the example of the prophets and Job ; 12 to forbear swearing ; 13 to pray in adversity, to sing in pros- perity ; 16 to acknowledge mutually our seveial faults, to pray for each other ; 19 and to restore a straying brotlier to the truth.

I PETER.

I. Peter blesses God for his manifold spiritual graces, 10 shewing that tlie salvation of Christ is no news, but a flung prophesied of old : 13 and exhorts them accordingly, to a godly conversa- tion, torasmuch as they are now born anew by the word of God.

II. 1 He dehortsthem from the breach of charity ; 4 shewing that Christ is the foundation wliere'on they are built. 11 He beseeches them also to ab- stain from fleshly lusts, 13 to be obedient to ma- gistrates, 18 and teaches servants how to obev their masters, 20 patiently suttering for well- doing, after the example of Christ.

III. I'He teaches the duty of wives and husbands to each other, 8 exhorting all men to unity and love, 14 and to suffer persecution. 19 Hedeclares also the benefits of Christ towards the old world.

IV. 1 lie exhorts them to cease from sin by the ex- ample of Christ, and the consideration of the general end that now approaches : 12 and com- forts them against persecution.

V. 1 He exhorts the elders to feed their flocks; 5 the younger to obey ; 8 ami all to be sober, watchtul, and constant in the faiti), 9 to resist the cruel adversary the devil.

II PETER.

I. Confirming them in hope of the increase of God's graces, 5 he exhorts them by faith and good works to make their calling and election sure : 12 whereof he is careful to remember them, knowing that his death is at hand : 16 and warns them to t)e constant in the faith of Christ, who is tlie true Son of God, by the eye-witness of the apostles' beholding his majesty, and by the testimony ol the Father and the prophets.

II. 1 He foretells them of false teachers, shewing the impiety and punishment both of them and their followers ; 7 from which the godly shall be delivered, as txst was out of Sodom: 10 and more fully describes the manners of those pio- fane and blaspliemous seducers, whereby they may be the better known and avoided.

III. 1 He assures them ot the certainty of Christ's coming to judgment, against those scorners w ho dispute against it ; 8 warning the godly for the long

fatience of God, to hasten their repentance. 10 le describes also the manner how the world shall bedestroyed : 11 exhorting them from theexpecta- tion thereof, to all holiness of life ; 15 and again to think the patience of God to tend to their sal- vation, as Paul wrote to them in his epistles.

I JOHN.

I. He describes the person of Christ, in whom we have eternal life bv a communion with God. 5 Holiness of life will testify the truth of that our communion. Faith assures us of the forgiveness of our sins t)y Christ's death.

II. 1 He comforts them against the sins of infirmity. 3 Rightly to know God, is to keep his command- ments. 9 to love our brethren, 15 and not to love the world. 18 We must beware of seducers : 20 frum whose deceits Ihe gudly are safely preserv- ed by perseverance through faith.

III. 1 He declares the singular love of God towards us, in making us his sons; 3 who therefore ought obediently to keep his commandments, 11 as also brotherly to love one another.

IV. 1 He warns them not to believe all teachers who boast of the Spirit, but to try thtm by the rules of the Christian faith : 7 and by many rea- sons exhorts to brotherly love.

V. 1 He that loves God, loves his children, and keeps his commandments ; 3 which to the faithful are light, and not grievous. 9 Jesus is the ."-on of God, able to save us, 14 and to hear our fnayeis, which we make for ourselves, and lor others.

II JOHN.

He exhorts a certain honourable matron, with her children, to persevere in Christian love aud be- lief. 8 lest they love the reward of their former profession ; 10 and to have nothing to ilo with those seilucers that bring not the true doctrine of Christ Jesus.

III JOHN.

He rommenils Gains for his piet.v, 5 and hospita- lity, 7 to true preachers; 9 cotnpUining ot the unkind dealing of ambitious Diotrephes on the contrary side, II who.se evil example is not to be followed ; 12 and gives special testimony to the good report of Demetrius.

JUDE. He exhorts them to be constant in the profession of the faith. 4 False teachers are crept in to se- duce them ; lor whose danmahle doctrine and manners, horrible punishment is prepareil : '-'0 whereas the godly, by the assistance of the Holy

Spirit, and prayers to God, mav persevere, and

grow in grace,, and keep themselves, and recover others out of the snares of those deceivers,

15 The seventh trumpet sounds.

XII. 1 A woman clothed with the sun travails. 4 'J he great red dragon stands before her, ready to devour herchild. 6 Whenshe vvas delivered she tied into the wilderness. 7 .'^lichael and his angels fight with the dragon, and prevail. 13 Ihe dragon being cast down unto the earth, perse- cutes the woman.

XI II. 1 A beast rises out of the sea, with seven heads and ten horns, to whom the dragon gives his power. 11 Another beast comes up out of the earth ; 14 causes an image to be made of the former beast, 15 and that men should worship it,

Could you share your State of Salvation that we may better serve our readers?


At this time, I do not believe Jesus is the Saviour!

I do believe Jesus is the Saviour and I know I have eternal Life!

I do not believe it is possible to 'Know in this life' if one has Eternal Life.

DOCTRINAL DISCLAIMER:

Ministers-Best-Friend.com is an Absolute, Bible-Believing, Conservative Christian Ministry, seeking to serve the Ministers who serve the LORD JESUS. As such, we provides web-space to a number of Ministries, notably NewtonStein (a Creation-Science-Based Research Group), as well as AMERIPEDIA, BIBLIPEDIA, CHRISTIPEDIA, CATHOLIPEDIA, ISLAMIPEDIA, JUDAEOPEDIA, TEA-PARTY-UNITED, TALK-RADIO-REPUBLICANS, ETC., – seeking to be an outlet for many CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVE VOICES who love the LORD JESUS CHRIST ABOVE ALL!

Obviously, all phases of Christianity do not agree doctrinally or politically and sometimes even disagree on the actual facts concerning a particular leader, nation or situation, hence there are well over 10,000 denominations extant.

We neither claim nor present ourselves as having perfect knowledge in all things. Thus views and articles posted on this website are those of their authors – who often insist their identities, denominational, and/or doctrinal persuasion be made known for various reasons – offered to you as wise people of God - Christian Patriots, whatever your nation - to discern for your own judgement and edification.

In the NAME of Jesus Christ Our Lord and Saviour:

Be Blessed!
