JESUS CHRIST DURING HIS MINISTRY BY Edmond Stapfer PROFESSOR IN THE FACULTY OF PROTESTANT THEOLOGY AT PARIS Copyright, 1897, By Charles Scribner's Sons. PREFACE I PROPOSE in the following pages to speak of Jesus Christ during his min-istry.

I shall par-ticularly seek for what they have not said, but in this search I take as point of departure certain data given by the Gospels themselves. It is therefore not my intention to follow the usual method of Lives of Jesus, setting forth the New Testament narratives in a more or less chronological order, and PREFACE vii studying them critically and exegetically.
