ORIGIN AND TEACHING OF THE LORD'S SUPPER.
With an Introductory Preface
"Blessed are they which are called unto the marriage supper of
the Lamb.-Rev. xix. 9.
EDINBURGH; AND NEW YORK.
SA T the earnest desire of the author, 1
have consented to introduce the fol
lowing pages to the notice of the reader by a few words of preface. The statements which the book contains have been derived altogether from God's word: the subject to which they relate is of the deepest interest to the thoughtful disciple of Christ.
It has been the purpose of the writer to bring out the teaching of Scripture respecting the origin and the nature of the Lord's Supper; the obligation which rests upon Christians to partake of it; the preparation which is necessary for its profitable reception; and the manifold blessings which flow to the faithful communicant in the use of the ordinance.
