Cured at Last!

Apr 8 THOUGH I take Luke’s statement as a text, I shall constantly refer to the version of the same story which we find in Mark v. 25 to 29.      Here we have one of the Lord’s hidden ones: a case not to he publicly described because of its secret sorrow. We have here a woman of few words and much shamefacedness. Her malady subjected her to grievous penalties according to...

May not the conjecture be highly probable that, finding the Lord Jesus Christ was frequently at Capernaum, Peter thought it best to have a dwelling there, that he...

Matthew 8:14-15

The Healing of One Born Blind

Aug 11 THAT was quite true: there was no instance recorded in Scripture or in profane history at the time when this man spoke, of any person who was born blind having obtained his sight. I believe it was in the year 1728 that the celebrated Dr. Cheselden, of St. Thomas’s Hospital, for the first time in the world’s history achieved the marvel of giving sight to a man who had been...
