The Central Teaching of Jesus Christ

  • Publication Date: 1892

Bernard’s lectures cover topics including the last supper, the detachment of Judas, the promises of Jesus, conviction of the world, illumination of the church, life and fruitfulness, and the prayers of Jesus.

The Rev. Canon Bernard, of Wells, has for fully three decades enjoyed a high reputation for his studies of New Testament doctrine; and this new volume, which comprises an orderly and complete inquiry into the central teachings of Jesus Christ, based upon the five chapters of the Gospel according to St. John 8–17, inclusive, will be widely appreciated by the Christian public of America, as well as of England. The spirit and method of this inquiry accords with the dominant feeling in the religious circles of the present decade.

Review of Reviews and World’s Work: An International Magazine

Fully conversant with the Greek text and the labors of the best commentators, believing withal that criticism has not invalidated but rather appreciated the authenticity of St. John’s Gospel, the author has made an acceptable contribution to the sort of Christian literature midway between commentary and sermon.
