This volume is the result of biblical studies, pursued through a series of years, during the hours of intermitted application to secular business; and is the testimony of a mature and earnest mind to the Messiah of Prophecy, and the hope of Israel. And the subject especially entitles it to attention. Works of this kind are now peculiarly needed, when so many, calling themselves Christian believers, intimate that we can afford to abandon the defence of the Hebrew Scriptures, as long as the New Testament is not directly impugned —as if Christianity could, in any way, be more insidiously assailed, than by undermining its foundations! The volume before us will answer a two-fold end: it will serve to show that the Old Testament is as essential to our faith and hope in Christ as the New; and that he who is so clearly revealed in the New as the Lord of glory, is the same being that visibly appeared in a form like that of man to the patriarchs and prophets—often called in the Hebrew Scriptures, Jehovah and Elohim. Though in these respects it may not be regarded as original, yet, from the manner in which the subject is treated, we regard it as a decided advance on the works of preceding writers.
