and power to heal all manner of sickness, and all manner of disease.

1 We can do all things through Christ, which strengtheneth us; and without him we can do nothing; who is able even to subdue all things unto himself.

* It is he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth; and hath the keys of hell and of death.

* This is he that is holy; he that is true ; Jesus Christ the righteous; who will give unto every one according to their works.

He is the way, the truth, and the life; the resurrection and the life, who giveth grace, and peace, and eternal life.

$ This is the true God, even the Son of God, Jesus Christ; whom his disciples worshipped while he was with them in the world, and after he was carried up into heaven; when the Father glorified him with the glory which he had with him before the

world was.

And they preached, baptized, and blessed in the name of Jesus Christ: they prayed to him, and thanked him; and from him they expected grace, mercy, and peace, and all other spiritual blessings,

and gifts.

These things are written that we might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God: that we

should trust in his name, and that all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father who when he brought in the first-begotten into the world, saith, And let all the angels of God worship him.

| This is the doctrine of the great God, and our Saviour Jesus Christ; to him be glory both now and for ever.

1,9 Christ Jesus being in the form of God, and thinking it no robbery to be equal with God, made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men, and was found in fashion as a man, being made of a woman in the likeness of sinful flesh.

He came down from heaven, from the bosom of the Father; and being made a little lower than the angels, as the children of men are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same.

* Aud the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us: God was manifest in the flesh.

For verily, he took not on him the nature of angels, but he took on him the seed of Abraham, and was made of the seed of David, of whom as concerning the flesh, Christ came.

6 Now the birth of Jesus Christ was wise : when as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, the Holy Ghost came upon her, and the power of the Highest over

shadowed her, and so she conceived and brought forth a son, who was called Jesus; and therefore also because she was with child of the Holy Ghost, that holy thing which was born of her was called the Son of God, and Emanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us.

"And when he was brought forth, he was wrapped in swaddling-clothes, and laid in a manger.

? Afterwards he was subject unto his parents, Mary and Joseph. He increased in wisdom and stature: he was tempted of the devil; he was hungry and weary, and had not where to lay his head : he wept and was grieved; and he was touched with the feeling of our infirmities.

* Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses, and was in all points tempted like as we are; and in all things he was made like unto his brethren, yet without sin. For thus it behoved him to be made, that he might be a merciful and faithful High Priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation for the sins of the people : for in that he himself hath suffered, being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted.

THE CHARACTER OF CHRIST, WHO IS BOTH GOD

AND MAN.

Unto us a child is born; and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, the Mighty God, the Everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

This is he that should come; he of whom Moses in the law and the prophets did write: the Christ

of God; Christ the Lord; the chosen of God; the Messias, which is, being interpreted, the Christ, or the Anointed.

? He was that prophet which should come into the world; a teacher come from God, to teach the way of God in truth.

To this end was he born, and for this cause came he into the world, that he should bear witness unto the truth.

Christ Jesus was the apostle and high-priest of our profession; called of God an high-priest after the order of Melchisedek; being an high-priest of good things to come; a minister of the sanctuary, and of the true tabernacle, which the Lord pitched, and not man.

The same Jesus is the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world; a lamb without blemish, and without spot.

5 There is one Mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; who gave himself a ransom for all.

6 This is indeed the Saviour of the world, in whom we have redemption; who is our advocate with the Father; and the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.

This is he that is born king of the Jews; and is now the prince of the kings of the earth ; who shall judge the quick and the dead, at his appearing and his kingdom.

* He is Lord of lords, and King of kings.

BY WHAT MEANS JESUS CHRIST HATH WROUGHT

SALVATION FOR US.

HE PERFORMED THE WHOLE LAW.

1 Christ came not to destroy the law or the prophets, but to fulál them. For he was made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law; and he hath, as it became him, fulfilled all righteousness.

? He pleased not himself, neither sought he his own will, but the will of the Father which sent him ; for he did always those things that pleased the Father.

He was meek and lowly in heart; he did no violence, neither was any deceit in his mouth. When he was reviled, he reviled not again; when he suffered he threatened not, but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously: And though he were a son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.

4 The law of truth was in his mouth; he walked in peace and equity, and did turn many away from iniquity.

* He went about doing good; and he did all things well; leaving us an example, that we should follow his steps; who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth.

Such an High-Priest became us, who knew no sin, who is holy, harmless, undefiled, and separate from sinners.
