Excerpt from An Exposition of the Gospel of St. John: Consisting of an Analysis of Each Chapter, and of a Commentary, Critical, Exegetical, Doctrinal, and Moral, Having the Text, English and Latin, Prefixed in Full to Each Chapter

As the General Introduction prefixed to the first edition of our Commentary on the Gospel of St. Matthew was meant for the three other Gospels also, which we contemplated expounding in course of time, we shall not trespass on the patience of the reader by travelling over the same ground once more.

But as one portion of that Introduction is peculiarly suited to the circumstances of the present time, we may be allowed to reproduce it, and prefix it to this our Commentary on the Gospel of St. John: -

"In addition to the foregoing reasons, the character of the age on which we have fallen, considerably influenced me in publishing a Commentary on the Gospels at the present time. Was it ever more necessary, at any period in the history of Christianity, than it is at this day, to place before the world, in as clear a light as possible, an exposition in accordance with the unerring teachings of the Catholic Church, of the fundamental principles of faith and morals, with which the Son of God came down to enlighten a world He found sitting in darkness and in the shadow of death? Does the condition into which many parts of the world are at this moment relapsing, promise to be an improvement on that state of Paganism in which He found it when He came to proclaim glory to God and peace to men? Has not His spouse and representative, the Catholic Church, with whom He deposited the fulness of truth, and to whom He bequeathed the plenitude of His authority, as fierce a struggle before her, enemies as embittered to encounter, as she had when she was forced to seek shelter for a time in the bowels of the earth, and the Flavian Amphitheatre re-echoed to the savage yells of, 'Christianas ad leones?' Are the principles of Atheism, Materia...

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from An Exposition of the Gospel of St. John: Consisting of an Analysis of Each Chapter, and of a Commentary, Critical, Exegetical, Doctrinal, and Moral, Having the Text, English and Latin, Prefixed in Full to Each Chapter While displaying his wonted Apostolic zeal, thundering against Heresy and Infidelity, and especially against the worship Of the great Diana of the Ephesians, he was denounced, as a dangerous character, to the tyrant Domitian, who had raised a second furious persecution against the Church. Having been sent to Rome, and confronted with the jealous Emperor Domitian, this cruel persecutor Of the Christians, he was condemned to an extraordinary kind Of punishment. He was sentenced, as we are told by Tertullian (de Presc. 36) to be thrown into a cauldron Of boiling oil, whence he came forth, as St. Jerome assures us (contra. Iovin.) quite uninjured, thus earning for himself the glorious title of Martyr, as the punishment in?icted would have caused his death, were he not miraculously preserved. Domitian fearing that any further attempts on his life might prove abortive, had him banished to the little island of Patmos, one of the Sporades in the {egean Sea. It is commonly held, that it was here, he wrote the Apocalypse. The acts Of Domitian, so remarkable for cruelty, having been, on that account, cancelled under his successor, the Emperor N erva, St. John was permitted to return to Ephesus, where he died in peace, after having reached an extreme old age. The precise year of his death cannot be exactly determined; it must have closely bordered on the moth year of our zera. This disciple of love, which he is never tired Of inculcating in all his writings. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
