PREFACE.

This book has been written with the same object as the corresponding volume on St. Matthew; for daily reading at Family worship.

This Gospel consists in great measure of the words of our Lord–His conversations with the Jews, and His instructions to His disciples. It contains much deep spiritual doctrine. It is in itself more difficult than the simple narrative of St. Matthew; and to write upon it simply has consequently been found less easy. But they to whom our Lord spoke were for the most part unlearned; and this Gospel, as well as the others, is meant for all; and

and no part of the Word of God is more full of comfort and instruction.

As in the former volume, so here, the Author has aimed at plainness and simplicity, keeping in mind

the usual character of a household. He hopes that most of what he has written will be found not hard

to understand; and that, in every reading, some part at least may be understood by all. God will give the Holy Spirit to them that ask Him.
