  • Pages: 122

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

This volume presents sermons preached by B.F. Westcott at the University of Cambridge. He notes, “the subject which I have approached in these sermons was directly suggested by the services of the three Sundays after Epiphany on which they were preached; and the festival of the conversion of St. Paul, which fell within the same period, seemed to furnish in some sense a practical illustration of the lessons which it conveys.” Westcott focuses on the miracles of the Gospels, examining them across the whole as one epiphany of Christ, and relating them to the broader narrative of the Gospels and of Scripture. The sermons reprinted here also include notes.

Contents:

  • The Miracles on Nature
  • The Miracles on Man
  • Miracles on the Spirit-World
  • The Conversion of St. Paul

The Gospel of the Resurrection: Thoughts on Its Relation to Reason and History

  • Publication Date: 1891
  • Pages: 307

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

Responding to criticism of the historicity of the Resurrection and the claim that believing in Christ’s triumph over death is incompatible with reason, B.F. Westcott considers the Resurrection and elementary Christian truths “as miraculous revelation from the side of history and reason.” His essay examines the historical reality and importance of the Resurrection, noting that “it is not too much to assert that the fact of the Resurrection (as the typical miracle of the Gospel) becomes more natural as we take a more comprehensive view of history, and more harmonious with reason as we interrogate our instincts more closely.”

Contents:

  • Statement of the Question
  • Introduction: Ideas of God, Nature, Miracles
  • The Resurrection and History
  • The Resurrection and Man
  • The Resurrection and the Church
