The Great Supper: Or, an Illustration and Defence of the Leading Doctrines of Grace ; in Three Discourses, on Luke XIV, 16-24
Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1847 - 180 páginas
The story of the "great supper" in Luke 14:16-24 is one of the most instructive of all the parables. It was originally spoken by Christ with special reference to the Jews, and represented their rejection of the Gospel and the subsequent calling of the Gentiles. But it also teaches us what God has done and is still doing in pursuance of His gracious designs in regard to this guilty and perishing world. As such, this parable provides a clear and beautiful illustration of the so-called "doctrines of grace," more commonly known as "Calvinism."--Http://www.solafidepublishers.com.
