ix genius. No other writings but the Gospels can compare with them in grandeur and importance. The Gospels are greater because they set forth the life and character of our Lord and Saviour. The Psalter expresses the religious experience of a devout people through centuries of communion with God. I cannot explain either Gospels or Psalms except as Books of God, as products of human religious experience, inspired and guided by the Divine Spirit. I could not have completed these volumes without the help of my daughter, Emilie Grace Briggs, B. D., who has laboured with me on the Hebrew Lexicon and in the preparation of this Commentary. It is simple justice to add her name to mine on the title- page. I have dedicated these volumes to John Crosby Brown, Esq., and D. Willis James, Esq., who have for more than the thirty- three years of my professorship served Union Seminary on its Board of Directors. Their services to Theolog-ical Education and especially to the liberty of theological scholar-ship cannot be too highly estimated. C. A. BRIGGS. PREFACE   C h a p t e r Home  | T O C  | I n d e x
