Fragments

1877 327 Is not the everlasting covenant of Hebrews xiii. the everlasting covenant of Ezekiel xxvii. 26, and that great Shepherd of the sheep the shepherd of verse 24, David their king who rules over them?

1877 346 In Colossians ii. 23 I am very much disposed to read apheidiai somatos (ouk en timei tini) pros pl. tes sarkos, neglecting the body (not in a certain honour) as to satiating the flesh. There was, as to satiating the flesh, harshness towards the body, paying it no honour.

1877 365 Note how self-will and corrupt lusts are identified both in 2 Peter ii. and in Jude. They are a letting out of will. So for good we see the apostle's power over his own will. There also we see despising dignities, and the like; no self-restraint. So, in fact, such a thing as communism lets loose corrupt lusts too.

1877 375 In Ephesians iv. 6, epi panton gives the personal supremacy which upsets Pantheism, which, without it, dia might be alleged to mean, though it would be really en. But He is everywhere throughout the universe; and then distinctively He is en hemin (or humin).

1877 375 Mark xvi. 20, I think, plainly shows that it was not written till all the gospel history which we have in the Acts, etc. (the Revelation only excepted), was over. God has given His history of the foundation of Christianity, and would allow, at the utmost, but this brief notice of the general dispersion of the doctrine of Christ. That it is a summary of the facts we have in John and Luke, the Galilee account ending with verse 8, we have already seen.
