V.-Shews, that as temporal rewards and punishments were the proper sanction of

the Jewish Law, so, there were no other; Moses entirely omitting the Doctrine
of a future state-That this omission was not accidental, but designed ; and of
a thing well known by him to be of high importance to Society--Proved from

several circumstances in the book of Genesis,- and from the Law of punishing

the crimes of Parents on their Posterity, which was to supply the want of the

Doctrine of a future State—The nature and equity of this Law explained, and

defended against Unbelievers—It is then shewn that as Moses taught not the

Doctrine of a future State of Rewards and Punishments, so neither had the

ancient Jews any knowledge of it-Proved from the books of the Old Testa-

which the nature of the Apostolic Reasonings against the Errors of Jewish
Converts is explained and illustrated..................................
-The agreement of the Proposition of no future State in the Mosaic Dispensa-
tion, with the VIlth Article of the Church of England evinced—That the

Old Fathers looked for more than transitory Promises, illustrated in the

famous case of Abraham, where it is proved that the command to offer Isaac

was merely an information, in a representative Action instead of Words, of
