DUBLIN: JAMES M'GLASHAN.
The following Series of Discourses was suggested by the Series of the Church's Festivals commemorative of Events relating to our Lord, including the Commemoration of His Temptation and Passion in the Season of Lent: among which have been inserted in their place a few other Events the notice of which, though not marked by the appointment of separate Festivals to commemorate them, was thought essential to the object proposed, inasmuch as they form connecting links in the chain of the Personal History of the Redeemer :-namely, His First PassoverHis Baptism–His Declaration of His Mission as the Messiah-His Transfiguration—and the Forty Days' interval between His Resurrection and Ascension.
