PART I. EXALTATION OF THE MESSIAHI.
to draw their affections from earth to heaven.
LETTER VII.—The intercession of Christ,
Taught in the Old Testament, and confirmed by the apostles. Its
nature. Christ appears in heaven for us, as mediator, in our
nature, and pleads for the blessings he has purchased. Its
foundation. Its objects. The blessings he intercedes for are,
the acceptance of their persons and services; that their neces-
their enemies overcome; and they be kept from evil;
Messiah. The people wished him to be a king. Jesus Christ is
ploits, extent. Design and duration.
LETTER IX.-Administration of Christ's kingdom, .
With respect to his subjects. They are made willing, and ruled
by his laws. They are supported, corrected, defended. They
enjoy many privileges : and are received at death into glory.
With respect to his enemies. He has them absolutely in his
power. Uses them for the good of his people. Restrains them
at present, and ultimately destroys them. History of the king-
dom of Christ. Improvement. How glorious the King! How
honorable the subjects! How encouraging to missionary efforts!
How important to submit to this King!
PART II. DIVINITY OF THE MESSIAB.
LETTER I. -A plurality in unity,
This is a great stumbling-stone. Messiah is God by nature.
Distinct persons in the Godhead. The doctrine is not absurd.
Incomprehensibility no objection to faith. Our people believe
doctrines though mysterious. A doctrine revealed should be
believed. The unity of the Godhead proved. A plurality
taught in the Scriptures. The word Elohim used as a plural.
Our rabbins greatly perplexed on this subject, and acknowledge
a mystery in the word Elohim.
LETTER II. - On the Trinity,
Proved from passages of Scripture, and from the testimonies of
the rabbins. Importance of the subject.
