Christianity over Infidelity displayed,

OR THE COMING OF
THE MESSIAH,

THE TRUE KEY
TO THE RIGHT UNDERSTANDING OF THE MOST

DIFFICULT PASSAGES IN THE

NEJV TESTAMENT;

: viz.
OF THE PREDICTIONS OF THE COMING OF THE ANTICHRIST OF ST. JOHN, AND
OF CHRIST,

| OF THE SURE WORD OF PROPHECY OF
OF ST. PAUL'S MAN OF SIN,

1 ST. PETER ;

BEING
A FULL ANSWER TO THE OBJECTION OF

MR. GIBBON, .
THAT OUR LORD AND HIS APOSTLES PREDICTED THE NEAR APPROACH OF THE

END OF THE WORLD IN THEIR OWN TIME.

The Whole being intended as an Illustration of the Necessity and Importance of
Considering the Gospels as Histories,

AND PARTICULARLY
As Histories of the great Controversy between our LORD and the JEW'S,

CONCERNING THE
TRUE NATURE OF THE MESSIAH'S CHARACTER.

By N. NISBETT, A.M.

Other Foundation can no Man lay than that which is laid, JESUS THE CHRIST
or THE MESSIAH. We have not followed cunningly devised Fables when we
made known to you the Power and Coming of our LORD JESUS CHRIST.
