Letter 3
Messiah Revealed in Paradise

The promise of a Messiah denied by some. Expectation supposes a promise. Such expectation at the birth of Christ. Amongst the Romans. Still expected amongst the Jews. Gen. 3:15 considered. The tempter was Satan. His destruction foretold. The seed of the woman means the Messiah. Called Hoo. The seed of the woman. The work he is to accomplish. Testimony of the Rabbins.

Extract from Dr. P. Smith. Messiah's heel to be bruised. Hence we see the revelation of a Messiah.

Letter 5
Messiah Promised to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob

The promise made to Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Origin of our nation. The promise confirmed by an oath. The promise of a Messiah made plainer. The seed means the Messiah. Not fulfilled in any individual. Neither in our nation collectively. The Messiah always called the Seed, not the Son. Applied to the Messiah both in the New Testament and by the Rabbins. From other passages of Scripture. The blessing promised. Justification, &c. The extent. Our people's mistake in restricting it to the natural seed of Abraham. Reason why the blessings of the Gospel are described by expressions of so extensive a sense. The channel is faith. Chap. 2, 3, and 4 of Romans proposed for consideration. Neither descent nor works, but faith.
