A VIEW OF THE EVIDENCE,
AFFORDED BY THE
LIFE AND MINISTRY
TRUTH OF THE CHRISTIAN REVELATION.
PHILIP STANHOPE DODD, M.A.
RECTOR OF PENSHURST, KENT,
AND CHAPLAIN IN ORDINARY TO THE KING.
ST. PAUL'S CHURCH YARD,
AND WATERLOO PLACE, PALL MALL.
The following arguments are presented, as ILLUSTRATIONS of that Truth, which more direct arguments establish. My design is to point out the internal characters of authenticity, with which the Scriptural accounts of St. PETER abound; to bring together various facts, connected with that Apostle's history, which attest his commission to preach the Gospel ; to note different occurrences in his ministry, which manifest the hand of Providence in the propagation of our Faith; and to show that his life, as well as his writings, confirmed the great Doctrine of the Evangelical Records, that “Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God.”
In Domo Domini quod possumus laboramus. According to our several talents and opportunities, we employ ourselves in the service of our Divine Master. Mine is an humble endeavour to do honour to His Holy Name. If the endeavour prove useful, TO HIM BE THE PRAISE!
