LECTURE I.-INTRODUCTORY LECTURE.
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 wife, and he die without children, that his brother should
take his wife, 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
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 he endured as seeing him who is invisible.
LECTURE III.-HISTORY OF MOSES.
EXOD. III. 13, 14.-And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and
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 í
AM: And he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.
LECTURE IV.-HISTORY OF MOSES.
EXOD. VI. 9.-And Moses spake so unto the children of Israel; but they hearkened not unto Moses,
EXOD. VI. 1.-Then the Lord said unto Moses, Now shalt thou see what I will do unto Pharaoh ;
for with a strong hand shall he let them go, and with a strong hand shall he drive them out of his
EXOD. X. 7.-And Pharaoh's servants said unto him, How long shall this man be a snare unto us?
Let the men go, that they may serve the Lord their God: knowest thou not yet, that Egypt is de-
LECTURE VII.—HISTORY OF MOSES.
EXOD. 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 beginning of months; it shall be the first month of the year to you.
Speak unto all the congregation of Israel, saying. In the tenth day of this month they shall take to
them every man a lamb, according to the house of their fathers, a lamb for an house.
LECTURE VIII.-HISTORY OF MOSES.
EXOD. 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 smote the Egyptians, and delivered our
houses. And the people bowed the head 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 walketh 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.
Exon. 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 he had straitly 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
EXOD. XIV. 21, 22.-And Moses stretched out his hand over the sea, and the Lord caused the sea to
go back by a strong east wind all that night, and made the sea dry land, and the waters were di-
vided. And the children 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 on their left."
