Book Reviews, March 2015

In March I read two books from the Girl Canon, a list of “books not necessarily for girls but which investigate, address, or represent the female experience in some essential way.”  I’ve read a few of the books on that list already, but I found it a useful guide to add even more to my ever-growing “to read” list.   1,213 more words

Example 1-Of how the Old Testament is cited in the New

In Matthew 8:16, we are told that on a certain occasion Christ “healed all that were sick,” and then under the guidance of the Holy Spirit the evangelist added, “that it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the prophet , saying, Himself took our infirmities and bare our sicknesses.” Such a use of that Messianic prediction is most illuminating, intimating as it does that it had a wider signification than the making of atonement for the sins of His people, namely that during the days of His public ministry Christ entered sympathetically into the condition of the sufferers, and took upon His spirit the sorrows and pains of those to whom He ministered, that His miracles of healing cost Him much in the way of compassion and endurance. 97 more words
