Page 305 - Then cometh the end, when he shall have delivered up the kingdom to God, even the Father; when he shall have put down all rule, and all authority, and power. For he must reign, till he hath put all enemies under his feet. The last enemy that shall be destroyed is death. For he hath put all things under his feet.
Page xvii - Heli, either by adoption or by marriage. If the former simply, it is difficult to comprehend, why, along with his true personal lineage as traced by Matthew up through the royal line of Jewish kings to David, there should be given also another subordinate genealogy, not personally his own, and running back through a different and inferior line to the same great ancestor.
Page viii - And straightway the Spirit driveth him forth into the wilderness. And he was in the wilderness forty days tempted of Satan ; and he was with the wild beasts; and the angels ministered unto him.
Page 435 - ... all the tribes of the earth shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.
Page xvi - Matt. 1. 16 ; Luke 3. 23. Only one of the tables therefore can give his true lineage by generation. This is done apparently in that of Matthew ; because, beginning at Abraham, it proceeds by natural descent, as we know from history, until after the exile ; and then continues on in the same mode of expression until Joseph. Here the phrase is changed ; and it is no longer Joseph who " begat " Jesus, but Joseph " the husband of Mary, of whom was born Jesus who is called Christ.

Page 5 - Matthew, which had been delivered to some in that country who had the knowledge of Christ before his arrival : to whom Bartholomew, one of the apostles, is said to have preached, and to have left with them that writing of Matthew in Hebrew letters, and that it was preserved among them to...
Page 434 - Then shall two men be in the field ; one is taken, and one is left : two women shall be grinding at the mill ; one is taken, and one is left.
Page xvii - Joseph was truly his son-in-law (comp. Ruth 1. 8, 11, 12); then it follows that the genealogy in Luke is in fact that of Mary the mother of Jesus. This being so, we can perceive a sufficient reason why this genealogy should be thus given, viz. in order to show definitely that Jesus was in the most full and perfect sense a descendant of David; not only by law in the royal line of kings through his reputed father, but also in fact by direct personal descent through his mother. That Mary, like Joseph,...
Page 265 - What Luther said of scripture in general, that it is a garden of God* with many beautiful trees full of the most precious fruit, and though he had often already knocked upon the boughs and got much fruit into his lap, yet did he continually find new fruit, as often as he sought and knocked again, —this may be said more especially of its parables, in which is treasured up an inexhaustible store of instruction, consolation, warning, and admonition. Their meaning is richer than the sea, no one has...
