Letters Illustrative of the Gospel History

And of the Epistles, as Connected with it, particularly Upon the Interesting Subjects of the Coming of Christ, of the Man of Sin, of Antichrist, of Election and Reprobation, and of the New Heavens and New Earth. 

In Reply to Mr. Gibbon, Mr. Faber, and Other.


Nehemiah Nisbett, M.A


"it has been boldly asserted, in the Theological Repository, under the direction of the late Dr. Priestley, and never, that I know of, attempted to be contradicted, in any part of his numerous works, that our Lord is recorded by his historians Matthew, Mark and Luke, to have declared that his second earning was one of those events which would happen during the lives of some of his contemporaries. "

And above all — he points out a fixed period, beyond which, their expectations of the coming of the Messiah, would not be delayed. Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of Man le come.

This last passage, is probably, one of those, upon which Mr. Gibbon has founded his opinion that Christ told his second coming, in the generation in which he lived — but, you will, I am sure, agree with me, that it is not easy to imagine, his disciples, in such circumstances, as have been described, could have entertained any other idea of the coming, here mentioned, than of the coming of the Messiah— or of the kingdom, which had been announced to be at hand ; for, to that coming, it is demonstrable, their whole attention had been, originally directed. With a belief that Jesus was the Messiah, they had joined him and had lent a willing and anxious attention to his instructions, upon that head ; in the hope that he would give them such information as they wanted. And the very circumstance of their having been ^ vested .with a commission to announce the near approach of the Messiah's kingdom, at the time when this discourse was addressed to them, naturally and necessarily led them to understand, the coming of the Son of Man, of the coming of the Messiah.

Besides ; you will, easily perceive that if the disciples had understood our Lord, as specking of his second coming to judge all mankind ; they must, immediately, and without hesitation, have forsaken him, as an Impostor ; as not answering their expectations ; for they, then, most incontestibly, entertained ideas which were totally incompatible with such an event : Nor is it easy to imagine how any one, claiming the character of the Messiah; in. a series of arguments manifestly intended for their encouragement, under peculiar difficulties;, should have introduced one which had an immediate and direct tendency to extirpate every "hope that he was the Messiah, whom they so earnestly expected. In fine, the whole of the preceding context, you must be satisfied, compels us to understand this passage, respecting the coming of the Son of Man ; not of HIS SECOND COMING, as the Judge of the World — but of his first coming, as the Messiah. And, that the subsequent context is a continuation of the same subject, must appear to you and to every one, who gives it, due attention, equally evident.
