PART I. EXALTATION OF THE MESSIANI.

Page.

LETTER I.-Introduction, .

. . . 9

Necessity of Christ's exaltation. It has respect to his divine and

human nature; to his body, soul, and person; and his mediato-

rial office; it includes power over all creatures.

LETTER II.—Resurrection of Christ, . . . . . 19

It was typified and predicted in the Old Testament, and foretold

by Christ. Objections answered.

LETTER III.-The subject continued, . .

. 28

The different appearances of Christ after his resurrection; the

body could not be taken away; his resurrection proved by the

testimony of angels, soldiers, pious women.

LETTER IV.-Continuation of the subject, . . . . 36

character of the persons to whom they preached, their perseve-

Quotation from Saurin. The subject worthy of credit.

LETTER V.-Importance of the resurrection of Christ, . 49

LETTER VI.-The ascension of Christ, . . . . . 61

It was typified and predicted. It is proved by the testimony of

Scripture, of angels, the destruction of Jerusalem, and the dis-

persion of our people. Circumstances respecting the manner,

time, and his employment on the occasion. Design: to prove

and a triumph over his enemies; to carry on his work in

heaven; to send the Holy Spirit; to prepare a place for his

people; to encourage the penitent; to comfort his people, and

to draw their affections from earth to heaven.

LETTER VII.-The intercession of Christ, . i . . 76

Taught in the Old Testament, and confirmed by the apostles. Its

nature. Christ appears in heaven for us, as mediator, in our

nature, and pleads for the blessings he has purchased. Its

foundation. Its objects. The blessings he intercedes for are,
