TWO SERMOS O CHRIST CRUCIFIEDBY T. H. STOCKTO.AS REGARDED BY JEWS, GREEKS, AD CHRISTIAS."For the Jews require a sign, and the Greeks seek after wisdom; bat. we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumbling-block, and untothe Greeks foolishness; but unto them which are called, both Jews andGreeks, Christ the power of God, and the wisdom of God." — 1 Cor,Ch. i: 22,23,24.The subject thus presented, is of universal, perpetual,and incomparable interest. It has been chosen, in goodhope, through grace, that the opening of it may be themeans of instant, enduring, and saving influence. Andso — may our due attention to it be accompanied bythe best blessing of "the Father, and of the Son, andof the Holy Ghost." Amen.I propose,1. A Summary Scriptural and Historical Rehearsal othe Apostolic Proclamation.2. A Review, more at large, of its Reputed Feeble-ness and Folly: and3. A Closing Contemplation of its Real and DivinePower and "Wisdom.
 
I. THE APOSTOLIC PROCLAMATIO.The most important particulars, in this wonderfulannouncement, are the following:1. The ature of Christ:2. The Expectation of Christ:3. The Advent of Christ:WCHBIST CRUCIFIED. 11sake of agreement, as far as practicable, with all whoadmit that the Apostolic proclamation included, in anyform, the divinity of Christ. Some Trinitarians preferto distinguish the Divine nature of Christ by the titleof the "Word, restricting the title of Son entirely to hishuman nature. It is remarkable, however, that in theonly instance in which this form occurs — " the Father,the Word, and the Holy Ghost," — it is generally con-ceded to be an interpolation, even by the most orthodoxcritics. To my own mind, the two titles appear equiv-alent and interchangeable — the Word being the nameof the Son of God, as Jesus is the name of the Sonof man.Without pausing to expand this topic, as it might beexpanded, it must suffice to say, that human sonship,however mysterious, is an indisputable fact; that,therefore, Divine Sonship is a philosophical faith; thatthe union of the Divine and human natures in a two-fold Sonship, is equally philosophical; and that it werequite as reasonable to deny the feet first stated, as todeny either of the propositions which follow it. Of 
 
course, Christ, as the Son of God, is like his Father — equally divine; and, as the Son of man, is like hismother, or his earthly ancestry in whole— equallyhuman. So, at least, the subject now appears.It may be well, in passing, to notice these facts :— that, often as the foregoing titles are found in the ewTestament, our Saviour never applied the higher oneto himself, except on a few extraordinary occasions;while, on the other hand, not even in a single instance,did his Apostles address him by the lower one. Theexceptions alluded to, on our Saviour's part, are exceed-ingly interesting. Take the three following: — On oneoccasion, be made a most impressive distinction be-14 CHRIST CRUCIFIED.tdcttis and reminiscences of eternity thronging his mind,in constant contrast to the little things of time, attract/-ing his senses — to Christ himself, his passing humilia-tion may have been far more impressive than his formerproper and exclusive pre-eminence. To his Apostles,on the contrary, who knew nothing of the spiritualworld but by faith and fancy, the more subduing sen-sation was awakened by the ascending and peerlessrelations of the homeless pilgrim, whom they acknowl-edged as their Lord and Master, to the kingdom, throneand bosom of the God and Father of all. The feelingis the same, though differently excited, and varying inits degrees of clearness and power. Behold ! I, the con-scious Son of God, am, indeed, the Son of man IBehold ! Jesus, the Son of man, must be the Son of God !It may be, moreover, that Christ made these com-mon references to his humanity, in part at least, toforestall, by his own authority, the heresies which hemust have known would soon arise in this relation.His Apostles, being destitute of this foreknowledge,did not then appreciate this reason. Their Master was
