GOSPEL IN THE LAW;
A CRITICAL EXAMINATION OF THE CITATIONS
FROM THE OLD TESTAMENT IN THE NEW.
CHARLES TAYLOR, M.A.,
FELLOW OF ST JOHN'S COLLEGE,
DEIGHTON, BELL, AND CO.,
101. e. 196.
This work purports not to exhaust the deep subject of Citation from the Old Testament in the New, but to deal, in a manner more or less intelligible to the general reader, with select citations of pronounced critical and theological interest.
I am sensible that not a few of the questions herein discussed are, and must remain, inconclusively dealt with, owing to their intrinsic difficulty: some of the earlier chapters in particular leave ample room for renewed investigation: while, of points discussed later, the Symbolism of Sacrifice has been dismissed with less of elaboration than I could have desired.
Of works on the Citations Mr Grinfield gives a list in his Apology for the Septuagint, pp. 142 sqq. Certain of the treatises there mentioned, and, in addition, those of Surenhusius, Gough, and Turpie have been consulted. I have made much use of Hengstenberg's Christology: more of Kidder's Demonstration of the Messias. I am further indebted to the labours of Poole (ed. 166976), Rosenmüller, Gesenius, Bengel, Alford, and Wordsworth: not to mention the concordances of Tromm, Fürst, and Bruder; the Grammar of Winer; with various special commentaries and other works of less generality referred to in due place.
Lastly, my best thanks are due to my friends who have revised the proof sheets; and to the Reverend the Master of Jesus College for several valuable suggestions received from him while those sheets were passing through the press.
