THE essays here collected were originally published in different numbers of the Biblical Repertory and Princeton Review during a period of several years. A desire having been expressed for their republication in a separate form, the author has not only given his consent, but made a number of corrections, chiefly verbal, and two additions of considerable length, to wit, the whole of the fifth essay and the conclusion of the fourth, comprising the argument in reference to the apostleship of Titus. Both these additions formed a part of the original manuscript, from which the essays were transferred to the Review, and are necessary to complete the argument. An occasional want of uniformity in the use of the singular and plural pronoun has arisen from a partial restoration of the original form, which was afterwards abandoned, as a superfluous labour in a mere republication.
