(a) Show that by its geographical position Palestine was adapted to become the nursery of both Jewish and Christian Churches. Give some recorded trials of Abraham's faith. Account for his departure from Mamre. Comment on “A burning lamp that passed between those pieces ;” “O that Ishmael might live before Thee ; 6 What mean these seven ewe lambs?” Also Junior Paper (a).

( with devils ?” (See also Junior Paper.)

(©). In what sense is the term Asia used throughout this book ? What Epistle discusses at length the controversy alluded to in the Apostolic letter. Explain the circumcision of Timothy ; 6 “ Pollutions of idols ;” “ Abstain from things strangled and from blood.” (See also Junior Paper.)

(d) Give Scriptural precedent for the celebration of Divine worship in a consecrated place. What allusions are made to ancient Service-Books in the second division of the Preface to the Book of Common Prayer ? Give some notice of Edward the Sixth's first Prayer-Book. What four devout exercises are enumerated in the Exhortation? Show that they are provided for in the offices which contain it. Gives examples, and account for the use of synonymous couplets of words throughout the book.

(e) How does Paley illustrate, by certain spurious epistles, that the very peculiarity of St. Paul's letters, when confronted with the same events as narrated in Acts, render it almost impossible for a forger to imitate them successfully, and are therefore strong proofs of their authenticity? How does he prove, from various passages, that Romans was written from Corinth towards the close of St. Paul's second visit to Greece ?

I.

(a) How old was David at his accession ? What do you know of the Jebusites, their city and cita-lel ? With whom did David form an alliance? What invasion threatened his destruction ? Describe the victories of Rephaim. What became his first object when his kingdom was established ? Account for the death of Uzzah, and explain Michal's taunt. Wbat Psalms probably belong to this prosperous period ? When does the kingdom seem to have reached its fullest limits, what were they, to whom promised, and in what order acquired ? Comment on the vengeance exacted from Moab, fulfilling Balaam's prophecy. Explain “A going in the tops of the mulberry trees." In which of the appointed Psalms is the same word used in the singular number?

(6) Why is Ps. lxxxv. appropriately selected for Christmas-day? What remark has been made on the use of the Divine Name, Ps. lxxxvi. ? To what period and for what occasions is Ps. lxxxvii. usually ascribed ? How is Egypt designated, and what is prophesied by the blendings of nationalities, v. 4? Who are “the people” of v. 6 ? Explain v. 5, also the inscription of Ps. lxxxviii. Do you suppose that vv. 5, 10 contain a reference to the resurrection of the dead? What royal sickness may have occasioned this mournful psalm ?

Whom does St. John call “ the Jews"? How does Christ seem to have

[ocr errors]

been regarded by the populace ? Comment on “the brethren of the Lord.” Show that at this time the Sanhedrim had resolved on the death of Christ, but were for the present restrained.

(6) Give the probable date of 1 and 2 Thess. With what part of St. Paul's history do these letters synchronize ? Show that 2 Thess. was written (i) to correct á misapprehension arising from 1 Thess. ; (ii) to comfort them under affliction ; (iii) to exhort against disorderly companions. Which is its prophetic

. section? In what other Epistles is the subject of Antichrist approached ? Explain “Mystery of lawlessness. ” (Revised Version preferable.)

III.

[ocr errors]

(a) “Our nature corresponds to our external condition, otherwise there would be no possibility of human life or happiness.” What presumption does this afford that our condition of probation here is a desirable moral discipline fitting us for another life? How does Butler argue that the design of Providence is to enable us to go through our probation, not to save us from danger, and that our future condition shall be the result of what we would do ?” Give his examples that practical habits are strengthened, while passive impressions are weakened by repetition. Of what use, then, are the latter ?

(6) On what does Wisdom ground her law, and what is her manifest axiom ? Give others less manifest, but universally acknowledged. What is the first law of Reason? How far has she been able to discover moral duties? By what natural measure may we try our actions ? Distinguish between the sentences of reason. By what marks may her laws be known? Why are they so ill observed? What follows their observance and transgression, and by what names are these consequences known? What do they pre-suppose ?

(c) How does Paley prove that the Epistle to the Galations was written by the Apostle Paul, and not by some Christian acquainted with his remarkable conversion who was desirous of personating him? Name the collated passages proving that St. Paul's direct assertion that the obligations of the Jewish law had ceased even for Jews, is borne out by his conduct as narrated in Acts.
