Sida 462 - It was universally believed that the end of the world, and the kingdom of heaven, were at hand. The near approach of this wonderful event had been predicted by the apostles; the tradition of it was preserved by their earliest disciples, and those who understood in their literal sense the discourses of Christ himself were obliged to expect the second and glorious coming of the Son of Man in the clouds, before that generation was totally extinguished which had beheld his humble condition upon earth,...

Sida 135 - His eloquence was of every kind, and he excelled in the argumentative, as well as in the declamatory way.

Their arms fell out of their hands, and they shrunk under the ascendant which his genius gained over theirs.
Sida 165 - The mode of killing them was perhaps the only modern remains of the grandeur of ancient hunting. On notice being given that a wild bull would be killed on a certain day, the inhabitants of the neighbourhood...
