And hence divine justice must be declared, even in the

remission of sin

XIII. XIV.

Christ sustained the wrath of God from the beginning to

the end of his life

And that in order to reconcile sinners to God
For there is a propitiation in his blood
Not for all mankind and every individual ; but, according

to the counsel of God and Christ, for the elect only XXI. XXII.

Reasons for Pilate's being mentioned in the Creed XXIII.

His temper and disposition

His supreme power in Judea
Which, being a foreign and a heathen power, suggests

several things of great moment

On the Burial of Christ.

Pages 117–136.

It is profitable for our instruction, to consider that the

burial of Christ was conducted by wealthy and honour-
able men, and chiefly by Joseph of Arimathea

Sect.

The dead body of Jesus was wrapped in clean linen, as

an expression of respect
The mixture of myrrh and aloes was added by Nicode-

mus, either for embalming, or for burning
This attention to corpses was probably referred by the

pious to the hope of the resurrection

The form of the Jewish sepulchres

XI. XII.

Why the sepulchre allotted to Christ was the property of

another

Hewn out of a rock

New

In a garden

Very near the place of crucifixion

The burial of Christ was foretold, Psalm xxü. 15.

Psalm xvi. 9, 10.

Isaiah lič. 9.

Christ's suspension on the tree, is not his burial with the

wicked

The type of Jonah
Jonah's great fish is not a Whale, but rather a Sea-dog
The fable of Hercules Tri-esperos borrowed from it
« The heart of the earth” is the grave
With regard to the analogy as to time, the simple explan-

ation commonly received seems preferable to the learn-
ed refinements of eminent men

XXVI. --XXIX.
There is no proof that Jonah continued three complete

days in the great fish

That Christ descended into Hell, is nowhere expressly. af-

firmed in Scripture

Nor in the most ancient Creeds
The Creeds which mentioned the descent, were generally

silent with respect to the burial; nor was it without
some mistake that both were afterwards joined together VI. VII.

SECT.
We should not so much inquire, what some of the ane

cients may have understood, as what they ought to have

understood, by this expression
Christ's descent into hell, as it respects the body, denotes
burial, or the state of death

IX-XII.

But it relates also to the soul

XIII.

Not as if Christ descended locally, either into the place of

the damned, or into an imaginary Limbus XIV. XVII.
But this descent expresses metaphorically those extreme

sorrows, which, previously to death, he sustained in his
soul, when united to the body

The agony of Christ was inexpressibly grievous

He conducted himself, however, in every respect most ho-

lily, remaining altogether without sin
Nor is there any thing culpable in his prayers

It is manifest, that none of these things were artfully

devised by the Apostles

Nor does the truth suffer from several seeming contra-

dictions with regard to circumstances

The resurrection of Christ was necessary

1. That the prophecies might be accomplished xxxIII. ---XXXVII.

2. That the types might be fulfilled

In the prophecies and types, not only the resurrection,

but the time of it, was foretold and prefigured

3. Because the glory of the Father, and of the Son,

equally required the resurrection of Christ
