FROM

THE AUTHOR'S PREFACE.

In the following meditations I trust I have succeeded in displaying to my readers at least a portion of those riches which are contained in the inexhaustible treasury of our Saviour's sufferings. Unmutilated scriptural truth, such as I believe I promulgate, still finds a favorable reception in the world, which I have been permitted to experience in the most grata' ing manner.

I mention it, solely to the praise of God, and for the satisfaction of those who are like-minded, that my writings, or at least a part of them, are, as I hear, already translated into English, French, Dutch, Swedish, and as I am assured, though I can not vouch for the fact, into the Danish language also. My “Elijah the Tishbite” has even appeared in a Chinese attire. But that which is of greater importance, is the intelligence I am constantly receiving of the manifold blessing which the Lord, of his great and unmerited favor, has bestowed upon my labors. That in his condescension and loving-kindness, He would also deign to bless this my most recent work is so much the more my heartfelt wish and ardent prayer, since it has for its subject the chief supporting pillar of the whole church-the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ.

The division of the work into the “Outer Court,” the “Holy Place," and the “Most Holy Place,” is intended merely to point out the different stages of the Redeemer's sufferings, from their commencement to their close, but by no means to attach a less or greater importance to them. Had the latter been the case, I would naturally have assigned the institution of the Lord's Supper its appropriate place in the “Most Holy Place," instead of the “Outer Court.” But in the plan of this volume, it falls among the class of events, which immediately precede the propitiatory work of the Mediator.

TRANSLATOR'S NOTE.

courses,

The important work, of which the present is a Translation, appeared originally as a series of dis

But, in order to render it the more generally acceptable and useful, the Translator, with the Author's kind permission, has molded it into its present form, and omitted whatever appeared to be of an extraneous nature. He has felt the more at liberty to pursue this course, since it has been attended with success in some of the estimable Author's earier works.
