THIS volume, which contains an exposition of the Parables of our Lord, especially in their prospective aspect, will, it is hoped, be found as useful and instructive as its predecessor. The field travelled over is most interesting and suggestive. Great truths are latent in every part, waiting for patient and persistent application in order to emerge, and enlighten, and cheer. Practical lessons are numerous and obvious. Both the one and the other, it is hoped, will be found intelligibly unfolded in these pages.

Prophecy is a cartoon of the future, which events will fill up. Miracles are fore-acts of the future, done on a small present scale. Parables are foreshadows of the future, projected on the sacred page. All three grow every day in radiance, in interest, in value. Soon the light of a Meridian Sun

will overflow them all. May we be found ready!
