The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah

By: Alfred Edersheim

Religious Publication

Preface: In presenting these volumes to the reader, I must offer an explanation, - though I would fain hope that such may not be absolutely necessary.

A notice board is also clearly vi...

The debt we owe to Calvin in establishing sound canons of interpretation and in thus directing the future course of exegetical study is incalculable. It is only to be lamented that too frequently the p...
