VOL. V.

THE DIVINE LEGATION.

.

BOOK V.

THE NATURE OF THE JEWISH THEOCRACY EXPlAINEU:

AND THE DOCTRINE OF A FUTURE STATE PROVE©

NOT TO BE IN, NOR TO MAKE PART OF, THE MOSAIC

DISPENSATION - - - - - - p. 1.

SECT. I. Little light to be got from the systems of Chris*
tian writers,—or the objections of Deists,—or from the
Rabbins,—or from the Cabalists, concerning the true
nature of the Jewish Republic.—The Hebrew People
separated from the rest of mankind not as favourites, but
to preserve the knowledge of the true God amidst an
idolatrous world,—Vindicated from the calunmious false-
hoods of the Poet Voltaire - - pp.i—19

£ECT. II. Proves the Jewish Government to be a Theo-
cracy.—This form shewn to be necessary: There being
no other, by which opinions could be justly punished by
civil Laws: And without such Laws against idolatry, the
Mosaic Religion could not be supported.—The equity
pf punishing opinions under a Theocracy, explained,
Buyle censured.-—Foster confuted.—Tljc Theocracy easily
introduced, as founded on a prevailing notion of tutelary
Deities.—An objection of Mr. Collins to the truth of
Revelation examined and confuted.—The easy intro-
duction of the Theocracy, it is shewn, occasioned as
easy a detection from the Laws of it.-^-The inquiry into
the reason of this leads to an explanation of the nature
of the Jewish idolatry.—Lord Bolingbroke's accusation
of the Law of Moses examined and exposed, pp. 19—S?
