19 John xiv. 9.

20 John i. 1.

21 John iv. 6.

22 Isaiah xl. 28, Isaiah xl. 29. cf. Sept.

23 Isaiah xl. 31.

24 I. Cor. viii. 6.

25 The text of John iv. 6 is kekopiakwj ekaqezeto, i.e., after being weary sate down. kopiwn ekafezeto would = "while being weary sate down." The force of the passage seems to be that Scripture states our Lord to have been wearied once, - not to be wearied now; though of course in classical Greek legei (historicè) auton kopian might mean "said that he was in a state of weariness."

26 Rom. v. 10.

27 Acts xiii. 30.

28 Acts viii. 2.

29 Gen. xlix. 29.

30 Gen. xlix. 31.

31 "The Machpelah," always in Hebrew with the article hl/p'b;+axa

= "the double (cave)."

It is interesting to contrast the heathen idea, that the shadow goes to Hades while the self is identified with the body, with the Christian belief, that the self lives while the body is buried e.g. Homer (Il. i. 4) says that while the famous "wrath" sent many heroes' souls to Hades, it made "them" a prey to dogs and birds. cf. xxiii. 72. "yuxai eidwla kamontwn."

32 Acts xii. 2.

33 Matt. x. 28.

34 Vide note on Pages 37 and 220.
