Excerpt from The First and Second Books of Esdras: Edited

For consider how a knowledge of Jesus and of His Words and Love and Death depends on a knowledge of the people who lived round about Him, and on a knowledge of the nationality He shared with them. To know Jesus depends on knowing the Jew, despised though he has been. Therein the Jew has been singularly like Jesus, writ large, for each has been, and is, a marvellous microcosm, ay, and macrocosm of real life; each has been 'rejected of men,' and each also sees his seed and pro~ longs his days.' That grows plain to the reader of Esdras I. And II.

For who shall know the Jewish nationality who does not feel the fight of the books of Maccabees? Who shall understand the Lord's yearning to convince or to condemn, to soothe? Or smite the Pharisee dissenter if he does not feel the wail of the Psalms of Solomon P Who shall see the justice of Jesus towards a Nicodemus if he have not sat with Jesus among the thinkers and writers and readers of 'wisdom' Or who shall sit be neath the Cross and drop hot tears on that pitiful spot realis ing that the Paschal Lamb of God feeds his soul, if he turns careless away from the hunger to eat the Passover that moves in every word of Esdras I. As for Esdras II., read his agony and his faith, and understand why Jesus said, 'thou art not far from the Kingdom of God.'

Book Description Forgotten Books. Paperback. Condition: New. This item is printed on demand. 196 pages. Dimensions: 9.0in. x 6.0in. x 0.4in.Excerpt from The First and Second Books of Esdras: Edited(i. ) He who takes up this booklet and sees it styled Apocryphal will doubtless wonder why one dubs it with so sinister a name. For this says just about the same as furtive, disguised, not to say thievish or sneaking. But, alas, we have all been taught to feel a little qualm when we buy a Bible that contains the Apocrypha, lest we be entering among bad companions, or at least are encouraging booksellers in bringing too near to very precious pages some others that are verily profane. Yet, let us pause to reflect what Canonical means to us, and while our Creeds and our Greek warn us that the Canon is our Rule of Faith and Practice, very few do look to canonical books to find either. Neither one sort of men among us nor another studies Leviticus for such ends, although, verily, it was meant as a stern rule of both Faith and Practice in its time; and even Romans has scarcely ever been counted as practically canonical in such sense. The words Canonical and Apocryphal have practically been always and purely esthetic distinctions. About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
