IN THE CITY OF OXFORD.
MY DEAR FRIENDS,
To you who patiently and attentively listened to these Sermons on “ Jesus and the Resurrection " I dedicate them, desirous that after my decease you should have these blessed truths always in remembrance. That the great Shepherd of the sheep may condescend to bless them and make them useful to those who peruse them, is the hearty prayer of
Your affectionate Pastor,
OXFORD, March, 1865.
GRANT, O LORD, THAT AS WE ARE BAPTIZED INTO THE DEATH OF THY BLESSED SON OUR SAVIOUR JESUS CHRIST, SO BY CONTINUAL MORTIFYING OUR CORRUPT AFFECTIONS WE MAY BE BURIED WITH HIM; AND THAT THROUGH THE GRAVE, AND GATE OF DEATH, WE MAY PASS TO OUR JOYFUL RESURRECTION; FOR HIS MERITS, WHO DIED, AND. WAS BURIED, AND ROSE AGAIN FOR US, THY SON JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD. Amen.
1 Cor. xv. 3, 4.
“ For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also
received, how that Christ died for our sins according
to the Scriptures : “ And that He was buried, and that He rose again the
third day according to the Scriptures.”
THERE were some amongst the Corinthians who denied the resurrection of the dead. Who they were we are not told, nor on what grounds they denied it. They might be like the Sadducees amongst the Jews; or the philosophers at Athens, who thought the doctrine incredible, and the thing impossible; or like Hymenæus and Philetus, of whom St. Paul makes mention in his Second Epistle to Timothy, “who, concerning the truth, had erred, saying that the resurrection was past already.” (2 Tim. ii. 17, 18.)
