The kingly office of Christ forms an interesting part of the Christian system, and as such both merits and requires extensive illustration. We may judge of its importance from the frequency with which Christ is spoken of in the sacred writings under the character of a King. Is the advent of Messiah announced to the ancient church? It is in these words: 'Rejoice greatly, da The kingly office of Christ forms an interesting part of the Christian system, and as such both merits and requires extensive illustration. We may judge of its importance from the frequency with which Christ is spoken of in the sacred writings under the character of a King. Is the advent of Messiah announced to the ancient church? It is in these words: 'Rejoice greatly, daughter of Zion; shout, daughter of Jerusalem; behold, thy KING cometh unto thee.' ...Or is the church required to celebrate the ascension of her Lord? In strains borrowed from the triumphant entrance of an earthly monarch into the capital of his kingdom, she exclaims: 'Lift up your heads, ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the KING of glory shall come in.' Such being the frequent allusion made in the Scriptures to this particular feature of the Savior's character, an examination into the mediatorial government of Christ presents peculiar attractions to every true disciple of Jesus; and as the theme is ample, as well as inviting, it requires the patient, candid, and believing attention of all who would be wise unto salvation.The intent of this edition is to make this work by William Symington more accessible to the modern American reader, without altering its essential character, and to make it available in both paperback and electronic versions. To that end, the editor has preserved the original text without revision to words or phrases. Most instances of British spelling have been replaced with American spelling. Severely archaic spelling has been updated, though verb forms ending in 'th' have been retained. Typographical errors in the 1881 edition have been corrected. The citations originally presented as footnotes, have been incorporated into the text body. Roman numerals have been replaced with Western Arabic numerals.
