Page 311 - Love is kind, and suffers long, Love is meek, and thinks no wrong, Love than death itself more strong ; Therefore, give us love.
Page 40 - Christ : whom having not seen, ye love ; in whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory: receiving the end of your faith, even the salvation of your souls.
Page 310 - On each side of this chapter the tumult of argument and remonstrance still rages : but within it, all is calm ; the sentences move in almost rhythmical melody ; the imagery unfolds itself in almost dramatic propriety ; the language arranges itself with almost rhetorical accuracy. We can imagine how the Apostle's amanuensis must have paused, to look up in his master's face at the sudden change in the style of his dictation, and seen his countenance lighted up as it had been the face of an angel, as...
Page 597 - Caesar, it had been again exposed to all the evils of war when Sylla was disputing the possession of it with the general of Mithridates. . . . The provinces of Macedonia and Achaia, when they petitioned for a diminution of their burdens, in the reign of Tiberius, were considered so deserving of compassion that they were transferred for a time from the jurisdiction of the Senate to that of the Emperor, (as involving less heavy taxation.)
Page 40 - And inasmuch as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this cometh judgment ; so Christ also, having been once offered to bear the sins of many, shall appear a second time, apart from sin, to them that wait for Him, unto salvation.
Page 311 - In 12, 31, he exhorts his readers to seek the better gifts, ie the more useful ones. And in 14, 5, he says, ' Greater is he that prophesies, than he that speaks with tongues ; ' ie he is more useful. Throughout that chapter the ground of preference of one gift to others is made to consist in its superior usefulness. This is Paul's standard ; and judged by this rule, love is greater than either faith or hope. Faith saves ourselves, but love benefits others.
Page 597 - Besides, the country had never recovered from the long series of miseries which had succeeded and accompanied its conquest by the Romans ; and between those times and the civil contest between Pompey and Caesar, it had been again exposed to all the evils of war when Sylla was disputing the possession of it with the general of Mithridates.
Page 39 - Apoby seeing how completely these dissensions have been 1C *geobliterated, that we can best understand how marked was the difference between their results and those of analogous divisions in other history. We know how the names of Plato and Aristotle, of Francis and Dominic, of Luther and Calvin, have continued as the rallying point of rival schools and systems long after the decease, and contrary even to the intentions, of the respective founders. But with regard to the factions of the Apostolic...
Page 40 - Simon, seest thou this woman? Thou gavest me no water to my feet, but she hath washed my feet with tears, and wiped them with the hair of her head: Thou gavest me no kiss, but this woman, since I came in, hath not ceased to kiss my feet.
Page 216 - What an argument and what a reproof is this ! The reckless and listless Corinthians thought they could safely indulge themselves to the very verge of sin, while this devoted apostle considered himself as engaged in a life-struggle for his salvation. This same apostle, however, who evidently acted on the principle that the righteous scarcely are saved, and that the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, at other times breaks out in the most joyful assurance of salvation, and says that he was persuaded...
