No. XVI. “Triad.”] Cudworth's Intellectual System. Parker's Free and Impartial Censure of the Platonic Philosophy, p. 113. Mauricu's Indian Antiquities, vol. IV, p. 426.
No. XXII. “ Thirty times.”] Allix's “ Judgment of the Jewish Church against the Unitarians,” p. 116, ed. 1699. See also, p. 119.
No. XXII. “Decalogue.”] “That the plural word is used with the design of intimating a plurality in the Godhead, in some respect or other, it is strange that any one should doubt, who has observed, that it is used in places, in which if there be in truth no plurality in the Godhead, the inspired Writers must have been determined by the principles of their religion, studiously to avoid the use of a plural; especially as they had singulars at command. The plural is used in that very precept, which prohibits the worship of any God but one. “I Jehovah am thy Gods, that brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.”-“Be not unto thee other Gods beside me;" and in every subsequent part of the Decalogue, where God is mentioned, the plural word is introduced. In the second commandment, “ For I Jehovah am thy Gods.” In the third, " Take not the name of Jehovah thy Gods in vain.". In the fourth, “The Sabbath of Jehovah thy Gods.” In the fifth, “ The land which Jehovah thy Gods is giving thee.” See p. 20, Animadversions on Dr. Geddes's Critical Remarks on the Holy Scriptures, printed by Wilkes and Taylor, 1803.
No. XXII. “ repetition.”] “ Hear, ( Israel (saith Moses) Jehovah our God is one Jehovah." Deut. vi. 4, as translated by the late good and learned Dr. Randolph, p. 131, vol. II. “A View of our Blessed Saviour's Ministry.” The same passage is translated by Dr. Randolph thus also ; “ Jehovah our Gods is one Jehovah." This, adds (Dr. R.) if he did not hereby design to denote a Plurality of Persons in the Godhead, should seem to be a strange form of expression. P. 7." Vindication of the Worship of the Son and of the Holy Ghost," ed. 1775. “Let those, who have any doubt whether Elohim when meaning the true God, Jehovah, is plural or not, con. sult the following passages, where they will find it joined with Adjectives, Pronouns, and Verbs plural.” P. 22. Ed. 1792. Hebrew and English Lexicon by Parkhurst, who refers to twenty-five texts, in the Old Testament, on this occasion. The same Expositor thus 'explains JEHOVAH_"the peculiar and incommunicable name of the Divine Essence (see Is. xliii. 8. Hos. xii. 4, 5.) subsisting in a Plurality, i. e. Trinity of Persons." See Deut. vi. 4. xxviii. 58. Lexicon, p. 173.
No. XXXIX. “blasphemy.”] St. Mat. xxvi. 63–5. St. John X. 33. See “ The Divinity of Christ proved from his own Decla. · rations attested and interpreted by his Living Witnesses, the Jews ;" in a Sermon, by Thomas Burgess, now Bishop of St. David's : preached in 1790.
No. XXXIX. “ Son of God.”] Allix, Chapter 17.
No. XLIII. “appellation of Aoyos.”] Allix, Ch. 12. Kidder, Part III. Ch. v.
No. XLVIII. “ were denied.”] With the division of the Books in the New Testament into Ομολογεμενα, and Αντιλεγομενα, made by Eusebius, every student in divinity is acquainted. See also Grotius de Verit. Rel. Chr. iii. 3. and, “Illustrations of the Truth of the Christian Religion," by Edward Maltby, p. 32, sqq. Ed. 1802, where the discriminating marks, which distinguish the Genuine from the Spurious Gospels are pointed out with much learning and ingenuity.
No. XLIX, “in the four first Centuries.”] See “A new and Full Method of settling the Canonical Authority of the New Testament,” by Rev. Jeremiah Jones. Vol. I. pp. 42, 62. Ed. 1798.
No. LIII.“ says Michaelis.”] Michaelis's “ Introductory Lectures to the Sacred Books of the New Testament;" translated by Butler, afterwards Bishop of Hereford, in 1761.
No. LIV.“ Erasmus, or Crellius.”] See Mill's Note on Rom. ix. 5. Wolfii “ Curæ Philologicæ,” on the same passage. Michaelis in Butler's Translation ; p. 64. The same Professor's “ Introduction to the New Testament,” translated by Marsh. Vol. II. pp. 387, 417, 471.
No. LX.“ the same duty.”] See Bishop Porteus's “ Lectures on the Gospel of St. Matthew.” Lect. xxiv. p. 335, &c. vol. II. Ed. 1802. Bishop Pretyman's “ Elements of Christian Theology." Part III. Art. i. p. 84. vol. II. Ed. 1799. Both these Writers found the Doctrine of the Trinity on our Lord's final commission in St. Matt. xxviii. 19; and with the strongest reason.
No. LXVIII. "Philopatris.”] Dialogue of Lucian so entitled. In vol. II. p. 998, Ed. Benedicti. Bishop Bull maintains this Dialogue to have been written by Lucian, in opposition to the opinion of Micyllus, who ascribes it to some more early Author. If how. ever it was written by some more early Author, it proves (to use Bp. Bull's words) “ qualisnam fuerit Christianorum fides de SS. Trinitate, etiam sub Trajani imperio, diu ante Luciani tempora." Def. Fid. Nic. p. 69. Ed. 1721. · No. LXXXVIII. « that he denied.”] See p. 377, “ Thesis," annexed to “ Illustrations of the Truth of the Christian Religion ;" by Edward Maltby, B. D. Ed. 1802.
No. XCVII.“ temper.”] The several qualities here enumerated are all combined in that prime Scholar, acute Critic, excellent Man, and faithful Friend, Dr. Charles Burney; the Urbanity of whose Manners is equal to the depth of his 'Erudition ; and both confessedly place him at the head of Literary Characters most emi. nent in this nation.
