JESUS OF AZARETH.I. HIS PERSOAL CHARACTER.II. HIS ETHICAL TEACHIGS,in. HIS SUPERATURAL WORKS.THREE LECTURES BEFORE THE K M, C. A. OFJOHS HOPKIS UIVERSITY, ILEVERIG HALL,BY JOH A. BROADUS, D.D., LL.D.,President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary,Copyright, 1890,By JOH A. BROADUS.PREFACE.These lectures were delivered in March, 1890,at the instance of Eugene Levering, Esq., of Balti-more, in the Hall which he has recently erected andgiven to the Johns Hopkins University, for the useof the Young Men's Christian Association of thatinstitution; and the President of the Y. M. C. A.specially requested their publication. They werenot designed as class-room lectures, since many notconnected with the ' University were invited toattend.
 
The subject treated seems to possess an ever-deepening interest at the present time. The per-sonal character of Jesus is now widely perceived tobe an important guarantee of his teachings andworks. This character is presented by the firstlecture in a way that to some may appear lackingin devout warmth ; but the object was to gain the34 Preface,concurrence ot every person who will calmly surveythe historical facts, and thus to lay a foundation forwhat would follow. It is hoped that the second lect-ure will tend to rectify certain erroneous but quiteprevalent views of the Saviour's teaching ; and thatthe third lecture may be found to have some argu-mentative force in regard to his mission and claims.The little volume is the fruit of life-time studies,and has been prepared with the author's best exer-tions, and a great desire to promote ^*the knowledgeof Jesus, the most excellent of the sciences."J. A. B.Louisville, Ky.,May, 1890.COTETS.LECTURE L
 
The Personal Character op Jesus 9LECTURE n.The Ethical Teachings op Jesus 39LECTURE in.The Supernatural Works op Jesus 71THE PERSOAL CHARACTER OF JESUS.WHATEVER else many of us believe as toJesus tLe Saviour, all men believe in histhorough humanity. The orthodox world has oftenfailed to make full praeiical recognition of his hu-manity, through an exclusive attention to otherviews of his person and work ; and the modem his-torical spirit has been a benefactor to orthodoxy bybringing out his human character and life as a vividreality, Jesus of azareth, the Founder of Chris-tianity, stands before na to-day as one of the defi-nite personages of human history. The leadingfacts of his career, the chief peculiarities of histeaching, the distinctive traits of his character, arenow really beyond dispute. And the excellence of his character, its high and peerless excellence, isnow recognized not only by Christiana of everytype and by many Jews, but by persons holdingalmost every form of unbelief. Time was, even inthe modem centuries, when some men of talentsand culture reviled him as an impostor or a fanatic,as did some of the blinded Jews who were hia con-temporariea.
