is as the dew of herbs, and the earth shall cast up the dead, xxvi. 19. And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt. And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever, Dan. xii. 2, 3. I will ransom them from the power of the grave; I will redeem them from death: O death, I will be thy plagues; O grave, I will be thy destruction: repentance shall be hid from mine eyes, Hos. xiii. 14. Marvel not at this: for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice, and shall come forth; they that have done good, unto the resurrection of life; and they that have done evil, unto the resurrection of damnation, John v. 28, 29. And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which he hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day. And this is the will of him that sent me, that every one which seeth the Son, and believeth on him, may have everlasting life: and I will raise him up at the last day, vi. 39, 40. And have hope toward God, which they themselves also allow, that there shall be a resurrection of the dead, both of the just and unjust, Acts xxiv. 15. And now I stand and am judged for the hope of the promise made of God unto our fathers: Unto which promise our twelve tribes, instantly serving God day and night, hope to come. For which hope's sake, king Agrippa, I am accused of the Jews. Why should it be thought a thing incredible with you, that God should raise the dead? xxvi. 6—8. And God hath both raised up the Lord, and will also raise up us by his own power, 1 Cor. vi. 14. But now is Christ risen from the dead, and become the firstfruits of them that slept. For since by man came death, by man came also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ shall all be made alive. But every man in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; afterward they that are Christ's at his coming, xv. 20-23. But some man

A. D. 33.

will say, How are the dead raised up? and with what body do they come? Thou fool, that which thou sowest is not quickened, except it die: And that which thou sowest, thou sowest not that body that shall be, but bare grain, it may chance of wheat, or of some other grain: But God giveth it a body as it hath pleased him, and to every seed his own body. All flesh is not the same flesh : but there is one kind of flesh of men, another flesh of beasts, another of fishes, and another of birds. There are also celestial bodies, and bodies terrestrial: but the glory of the celestial is one, and the glory of the terrestrial is another. There is one glory of the sun, and another glory of the moon, and another glory of the stars: for one star differeth from another star in glory. So also is the resurrection of the dead. It is sown in corruption; it is raised in incorruption: It is sown in dishonour; it is raised in glory: It is sown in weakness; it is raised in power: Itis sown a natural body; it is raised a spiritual body. There is a natural body,and there is a spiritual body. And so it is written, The first man Adam was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. Howbeit that was not first which is spiritual, but that which is natural; and afterward that which is spiritual. The first man is of the earth, earthy: the second is the Lord from heaven. As is the earthy, such are they also that are earthy and as is the heavenly, such are they also that are heavenly. And as we have borne the image of the earthy, we shall also bear the image of the heavenly. Now this I say, brethren, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God: neither doth corruption inherit incorruption. Behold, I shew you a mystery; We shall not all sleep, but we shall all be changed, In a moment, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trump: for the trumpet shall sound, and the dead shall be raised incorruptible, and we shall be changed. For this corruptible must put on incorruption, and this mortal must put on immortality. So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought

to pass the saying that is written, Death is swallowed up in victory. O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? The sting of death is sin; and the strength of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labour is not in vain in the Lord, 35-58. For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto him

self, Phil. iii. 20, 21.

b And Jesus answering said unto them, Do ye not therefore err, because ye know not the Scriptures, neither the power of God? For when they shall rise from the dead, they neither marry, nor are given in marriage; but are as the angels which are in heaven, Mark xii. 24, 25. 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, Luke xx. 34-36. But this I say, Brethren, the time is short: it remaineth, that both they that have wives be as though they had none; And they that weep, as though they wept not; and they that rejoice, as though they rejoiced not; and they that buy, as though they possessed not; And they that use this world, as not abusing it: for the fashion of this world passeth away, 1 Cor.vii. 29-31. Behold, what manner of love the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called the sons of God: therefore the world knoweth us not, because it knew him not. Beloved, now are we the sons of God, and it doth not yet appear what we shall be: but we know that, when he shall appear, we shall be like him; for

A. D. 33.

we shall see him as he is, 1 John iii. 1.2.

Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear, Matt. xiii. 43. Bless the LORD, ye his angels, that excel in strength, that do his commandments, hearkening unto the voice of his word, Psal. ciii. 20. Thus saith the LORD of hosts; If thou wilt walk in my ways, and if thou wilt keep my charge, then thou shalt also judge my house, and shalt also keep my courts, and I will give thee places to walk among these that stand by, Zech. iii. 7.

I a am the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob? b God is not the God of the dead, but of the living.

a Moreover he said, I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. And Moses hid his face; for he was afraid to look upon God, Exod. iii. 6. Go, and gather the elders of Israel together, and say unto them, The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, of Isaac, and of Jacob, appeared unto me, saying, I have surely visited you, and seen that which is done to you in Egypt, 16. Saying I am the God of thy fathers, the God of Abraham, and the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob. Then Moses trembled, and durst not behold, Acts vii. 32. But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city, Heb. xi. 16.

And as touching the dead, that they rise: have ye not read in the book of Moses, how in the bush God

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 unto him, Luke xx. 37, 38.

A. D. 33.

I say unto you, That except your righteousness shall exceed the righteousness of the Scribes and Pharisees, ye shall in no case enter into the kingdom of heaven, Matt. v. 19, 20. Woe unto you, Scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone. Ye blind guides, which strain at a gnat, and swallow a camel, xxiii. 23, 24. I have written to him the great things of my law, but they were counted as a strange thing, Hos. viii. 12. And one of the Scribes came, and having heard them reasoning together, and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all? Mark xii. 28.

VER. 37.

Ὁ δὲ Ἰησοῦς εἶπεν αὐτῷ· ̓Αγαπήσεις Κύριον τον Θεόν σου ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ καρδίᾳ σου, καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ ψυχῇ σου, καὶ ἐν ὅλῃ τῇ δια νοίᾳ σου.

Jesus said unto him, a Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.

a And thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy might, Deut. vi. 5. And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the Lonp thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul, x. 12. And the LORD thy God will circumcise thine heart, and the heart of thy seed, to love the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul, that thou mayest live, xxx. 6. And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is, Hear O Israel; The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment, Mark xii. 29, 30. And he answering said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind; and thy neighbour as thyself, Luke x. 27. Because the carnal mind is en

mity against God: for it is not sub- | ject to the law of God, neither indeed can be, Rom. viii. 7. This is the covenant that I will make with them after those days, saith the Lord, I will put my laws into their hearts, and in their minds will I write them; And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more, Heb. x. 16, 17. By this we know that we love the children of God, when we love God, and keep his commandments. For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments and his commandments are not grievous. For whatsoever is born of God overcometh the world: and this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith. Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 1 John v. 2-5.

VER. 38.

Αὕτη ἐστὶ πρώτη καὶ μεγάλη ἐντολή.
This is the first and great command-

ment.

VER. 39.

A. D. 33.

Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thy self, Gal. v. 14. If ye fulfil the royal law according to the Scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well, Jam. ii. 8.

b But he, willing to justify himself, said unto Jesus, And who is my neighbour? And Jesus answering said, A certain man went down from Jeru salem to Jericho, and fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment, and wounded him, and departed, leaving him half dead. And by chance there came down a certain priest that way: and when he saw him, he passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the other side. But a certain Šamaritan, as he journeyed, came where he was: and when he saw him, he had compassion on him. And went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. And on the morrow when he

And the second is like unto it, a Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.

a Honour thy father and thy mother: and, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, Matt. xix. 19. Thou shalt not avenge, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people, but thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself: I am the LORD, Lev. xix. 18. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these, Mark xii. 31. And he answering said, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. And he said unto him, Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live, Luke x. 27, 28. For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery, Thou shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal, Thou shalt not bear false witness, Thou shalt not covet; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law, Rom. xiii. 9, 10. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even in this;

gave them to the host, and said unto
him, Take care of him; and whatso-
ever thou spendest more, when I
come again, I will repay thee. Which
now of these three, thinkest thou, was
neighbour unto him that fell among
the thieves? And he said, He that
shewed mercy on him. Then said
Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou like-
wise, Luke x. 29-37.
Let every
one of us please his neighbour for his
good to edification, Rom. xv. 2. As
we have therefore opportunity, let us
do good unto all men, especially unto
them who are of the household of
faith, Gal. vi. 10.

VER. 40.

Ἐν ταύταις ταῖς δυσὶν ἐντολαῖς ὅλος ὁ vóμos naì ci πрopñτAI XpéμAVTAI.

On these two commandments hang all the Law and the Prophets.

a Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the Law and the Prophets, Matt. vii. 12. Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned, 1 Tim. i. 5. Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and

[blocks in formation]

every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God. He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love. In this was manifested the love

of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world, that we might live through him. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins. Beloved, if God so loved us, we ought also to love one another, 1 John iv. 7-11. We love him, because he first loved us. If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen? And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also, 19—21. VER. 41.

Συνηγμένων δὲ τῶν Φαρισαίων, ἐπηρώτη

While the Pharisees were gathered together, Jesus asked them,

VER. 42.

Saying, a What think ye of Christ? whose Son is he? b They say unto him, The Son of David.

a When Jesus came into the coasts of Cæsarea Philippi, he asked his disciples, saying, Whom do men say that I the Son of man am? And they said, Some say that thou art John the Baptist: some, Elias; and others, Jeremias, or one of the prophets. He saith unto them, But whom say ye that I am? And Simon Peter answered and said, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him, Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father which is in heaven, Matt. xvi. 13-17.

The a LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool?

a The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool, Psal. cx. 1. For David himself said by the Holy Ghost, The LORD said to my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, till I make thine enemies thy footstool, Mark xii. 36. For David is not ascended into the heavens: but he saith himself, The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou on my right hand, Acts ii. 34. For he must reign, till be hath put all enemies under his feet, 1 Cor. xv. 25. Who being the brightimage of his person, and upholding all ness of his glory, and the express things by the word of his power, when he had by himself purged our sins, sat down on the right hand of the Majesty on high, Heb.iii. 3. But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool? 13. But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins, for ever sat down on the right hand of God; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool, x. 12, 13. Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God, xii. 2.
