ON

ON THE

NATIVITY AND PERSONAL CHARACTER

OF

CHRIST.

ISAI A H ix. 6. Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given, and the government shall

be upon his shoulder; and his name shall be called, Wonderful, Counsellor, the mighty God, the everlasting Father, the Prince of Peace.

The Evangelical Prophet in these words sees, as it were, the Son of God born of the Virgin, and the blessed Jesus laid in a manger; and, in a prophetic ecstasy, rather declares than foretells the birth of the Messiah : “ Unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given.*" Then

* "Singularis est Emphasis in voce, nobis; significat id, quod omnes sentiunt, nostro bono et commodo natum esse hunc Puerum Imperatorem. Vide Vitringa, in locum.

“ Impudenter Judæi hæc ad Ezechiam torquent. Nam, 1o. Hic natus est ante hoc Vaticinium. Vide 2 Reg. xvi. 2; xviii. 2. 2o. Nullum h. 1. Ezechiæ vestigium, nec verbum hactenus de eo probatum. 3o. Nativitas hujus Pueri lætitiam et liberationem attulit: non sic nativitas Ezechiæ. 4o. De ejus nativitate agitur, qui lucem attulit ambulantibus in tenebris Galilæis et Judæis : id quod nemo Ezechiæ adscripserit. 5o. Sequentia nomina et epitheta nulli mortali conveniunt.” Calovius. “ Christus hic dicitur puer; quoad humanam naturam, Matt. ii. 11. Puer; ergo homo est: et filius, idque sine adjectione, et xat' t&ogar, ut a reliquis hominibus discernatur, et constet alium a Dei filio non posse hîc intelligi: nec dubium est oraculum illud hîc respici. 2 Sam. vii. 14, ipse erit mihi filius.” Calvin, &c. Which last passage is emphatically ascribed to Christ by the author of the Hebrews, c. i. 5.
