Art. I. Sequel to Ecclesiastical Researches, 8s. By John
(Continued from p. 248.) WE dismissed the consideration of our author, and his work, with the review of those controverted points between the Orthodox and Unitarian, which are decided by the testimony of ecclesiastical antiquity. It was then our object, not merely to embody and concentrate the mass of evidence which thence arises in our favour; but to unmask those witnesses, whom he had suborned from the Jews, and would have palmed on us for Christians; by whose assistance, the Orthodox Faith, and the testimony of its defenders was to be subverted to the ground, The question between us is now to be decided on the authority of the Inspired Writings. The field into which we are now challenged to descend, is indeed wide, and the adversary to whom we are opposed, well practised in the art of winding and doubling, through all the mazes of evasion; but the ground on which we engage is sacred, and feeling every security in the panoply of celestial truth with which we are girt; we descend to the contest, with no apprehension for the event.
We pass over the preliminary observations of our author, which inform us, as a novelty, that Moses and the Prophets uniformly inculcate, that there is but one God, and which proceed to establish, by the force of assertion, that the Prophecies which foretel the Incarnation,
« furnish arguments fatal to the pre-existence of Christ." Nor shall we waste ang words, upon the inferences to which these preliminaries leady . z

in which he very gravely, but consistently prefaces his nonsense with a blunder. “There are two or three solitary passages in the Jewish writings which have been adduced to prove the divinity of Christ.” The theme of our author is accordingly answerable to its exordium. One of the first passages on which he alights, is Gen. i. 26., in which we are accordingly informed, that Moses,“ holds forth the Almighty communing with his own attributes, or with himself,-as, a king with his ministers.” To this very profound observation, which would be scarcely paralleled in St. Luke's or Bedlam, at full moon, we have indeed very little to reply.
The whole weight of sustaining this fundamental position, that “ Christianity, as the soul of Judaism, does not comprehend the doctrines of the divinity, the miraculous birth and the atonement of Christ;” our author now rests upon a single text. It has been rather cruel thus to disappoint our hopes, when we were led to expect something, which proceeding from such a hand, must be at least novel and edifying, on the subject of our favourite texts, Is.vii. 14. liñ. 7, &c. and their appurtenances, Matt. i. 23. Act. vni. 32. 1 Pet. ii. 21, &c. But to compensate for the disappointment we are kindly favoured with an improved version and comment upon Is. ix. 6. The former we shall lay before the reader as we find it, that no ray of the light which beams from this luminous detecter of error and fraud, may be lost in transmission.
“ The common version," says our author, “ is an egregious i misrepresentation of the original, and runs thus : * His name shall
be called wonderful, counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting father, the prince of peace.'” ch. ix. 6. The true meaning, as it appears to me, is the following:
• He shall be called by a wonderful name,
Counsellor of the mighty God,
Prince of Peace.” P. 91, 92. This correction is supported, by the literal force of the original; by the translations of Aquila, Symmachus, Theodotion, and the Septuagint; and by a negative argument deducible from the silence of the primitive fathers, who have “ never cited this passage in proof of the divinity of Christ." P. 92, 93.
Had the description of the external testimony been such as it is here represented, in which, however, our author, consistent throughout, has taken a true poetical licence;
