The Resemblance Between the Old Testament and the New.

First general similarity, or agreement--viz. that the Old Testament, equally with the New, extended its promises beyond the present life, and held out a sure hope of immortality.

He blames severely the clerk who devotes himself rather to the service of princes than that of God. 1.
