LECTURE I.-INTRODUCTORY LECTURE. - Page 5

LUKE XX, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38.—Then came to him certain of the Saddu-

cees (which deny that there is any resurrection) and they asked him, saying, Master, Moses wrote

unto us, if any man's brother die, having a wise, and he die without children, that his brother should

take his wite, and raise up seed unto his brother. There were therefore seven brethren: and the

first took a wife, and died without children. And the second took her to wife, and he died childless.

And the third took her; and in like manner the seven also. And they left no children, and died.

Last of all the woman died also. Therefore in the resurrection, whose wife of them is she? for

seven had her to wife. And Jesus answering, said unto them, The children of this world marry.

and are given in marriage : but they which shall be accounted worthy to obtain that world, and

the resurrection from the dead, neither marry, nor are given in marriage. Neither can they die

any more; for they are equal unto the angels, and are the children of God, being the children of

the resurrection. Now that the dead are raised, even Moses shewed at the bush, when he calleth

the Lord, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. For he is not a
* God of the dead, but of the living : for all live into him.

HEB. XI. 24, 25, 26, 27.-By faith Moses, when he was come to years, refused to be called the son

of Pharaoh's daughter; choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of God than to enjoy

the pleasures of sin for a season ; estreming the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treas-

ures of Egypt : for he had respect unto the recompense of the reward. By faith he forsook Egypt,

not fearing the wrath of the king : for be endured as seeing him who is invisible.

shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me,

What is his name? What shall I say unto them? And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I

AM: And he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.

25

for anguish of spirit, and for cruel bondage.

for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his

land.

stroyed ?

Exop. XII. 1, 2, 3.-And the Lord spake unto Moses and Aaron in the land of Egypt, saying, This

month shall be unto you the heginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.

49

Exop. XII. 26, 27.-And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean

you by this service? That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord's passover, who passed over

The houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smole the Egyptians, and delivered our

houses. And the people bowed the bead and worshipped.

Psalm XCI. 5, 6, 7, 8.-Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night, nor for the arrow that flieth

by day; nor for the pestilence that walkeih in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at

noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not

come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold, and see the reward of the wicked.

Exop. XIII, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22.-And it came to pass when Pharaoh had let the people go, that

God led them not through the way of the land of the Philistines, although that was near; for God

said, Lest peradventure the people repent when they see war, and they return to Egypt. But God

led the people about, through the way of the wilderness of the Red Sea. And the children of

Israel went up harnessed out of the land of Egypt. And Moses took the bones of Joseph with

him : for be had strailly sworn the children of Israel, saying, God will surely visit you; and ye

shall carry up my bones away hence with you. And they took their journey from Succoth, and

encamped in Etham, in the edge of the wilderness. And the Lord went before them, by day in a

pillar of a cloud, to lead them the way; and by night in a pillar of fire, to give them light; to go

by day and night. He took not away the pillar of the cloud by day, nor the pillar of fire by night

from before the people.

go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were di-

vided. And the hildren of Israel went into the midst of the sea upon the dry ground: and the

waters were a wall unto them on their right hand, and op their left,
