PREFACE.

ness.

This Exposition was prepared for a Bible Class of young Men in 1871. It combines the accounts of the Parables given by the Evangelists in a new translation for the sake of fresh

Comparison with the translation in common use will be useful, as will also, I hope, the Exposition, which is designed to help ordinary readers of the Scriptures to lay hold of the treasures of wisdom and knowledge. When you have read all, carefully consider the DiscrIMINATION AND COMPLETENESS of the Kingdom of God in its Nature, Laws, and Results.

This pleasant and profitable employment of a season of enforced retirement from beloved public work will shew what may be done by taking up one department of the adorable Saviour's teaching, and learning from it some of the fulness of Jesus.

“We walk o'er the rich soil and gather up

Its larger surface diamonds, let us stop
To dig out the bright gems and precious ores
Just buried under it."

May the Great and Gracious Teacher in His mercy bless this little volume to all who read it.

SPENCER MURCH.
