"SIX SEAL PRETERIST"
The New Testament, arranged in Chronological and
Historical Order, with copious Notes on the principal Subjects in Theology'
London, 1827. 2 vols. 8vo.
(On Hebrews 6:4-8)
"The apostle is supposed in this analogy, to refer to the great spiritual
advantages enjoyed by the Jews, and to foretell as a punishment of their
abuse of them, and their apostasy, the approaching destruction of their city
and temple, which took place about seven years after; — they were therefore
"nigh unto cursing." (Hebrews 6:4-8, Note in loc. )
(On Hebrews 10:39)
"The circumstance, that several, who still continued Christians, forsook the
places of public worship, (x. 25,) does not occur in any other epistle, and
implies a general and continued persecution, which deterred the Christians
from an open confession of their faith. Under these sufferings the Hebrews
are comforted by the promised coming of Christ, which they are to await with
patience, as being not far distant, (x. 25—38.) This can be no other than
the promised destruction of Jerusalem, (Matt. xxiv.) of which Christ himself
said, (Luke xxi. 28,) "When these things begin to come to pass, then look
up, and lift up your heads, for your redemption draweth nigh." (Intro. Epist.
to the Heb.)
(On Revelation 6:12-17)
"'The sixth seal is opened; — the convulsions of the Roman empire are
represented at the final overthrow of paganism, and the triumphant
establishment of the Christian church in its place." (Sum. in loc.)
