dience of Christ, Views of the early Reformers on, - Introduction 448. Bearing of these views upon the agitating controversies of the times 449. Importance of the subject 451. Views on justification 453. The term, justification, not of recent coinage 453. The terms, pardon, forgiveness, and justification employed as synonymes 454. Views of Augustine 454. Of Oecumenius, Bernard and of John Calvin 455. Of Ursinus 459. Of Paraeus 463. Imputation of the righteousness of Christ and remission of sins customarily joined in justification 465. Melancthon says

that justification signifies forgiveness of sins 466. The French and Augsburg Confessions unite substantially in the same sentiment 467. Also the Saxony and Belgic catechisms 468. Wendeline remarks that they express the whole nature of justification who affirm that it consists in the forgiveness of sins 469, Dr. Tilenus says that either forgiveness or imputation taken separately expresses the whole nature of justification 470. Similar statement of Piscator 472. The Calvinistic church, at the first, almost entirely took the ground that pardon was the whole of justification 473. The Calvinists gradually began to make a distinction 474. Opinions of Dr. Amandus Polanus 474. Dr. F. Gomar 476. He explains forgiveness of sins as the prior member of justification 477. A modern definition of pardon the same which the later Reformers gave of justification 478. Recent instances of departure from primitive Calvinism 479, such as that Adam was not created righteous 479. The same the opinion of Dr. Taylor of Norwich 480. Osiander condemned for maintaining this opinion 48).

of 60. What does a thorough knowledge of Scripture involve? A thorough acquaintance with the original languages of Scripture ;-an acquaintance with the geogra. phy and antiquities of ancient Palestine, etc. 61.

The constitution of man considered as an intellectual and moral being 65. A right state of heart 65. How may a thorough knowl. edge of the Scriptures be most effectually diffused ? We must have some men in the church who shall press every department of bib

lical and theological learning to its utmost limits, 66. The great body of the christian ministry must receive such an education as shall enable them to avail themselves of the results of the investigations of others 69. The original languages of Scripture, the Latin language 70. Theological Seminaries, 71., etc.
