St. John's Conclusion to the Gospel History of Jesus Christ.

JOHN XX. 30, 31. xxi. 25.
John xx. 30. And many other signs * truly did Jesus in the presence

of his disciples, which are not written in this book ;
31. But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus

is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might

have life through his name.
Joh. xxi. 25. And there are also many other things which Jesus

did, the which if they should be written every one, I sup-
pose that even the world itself could not contain the books
that should be written. Amen.

miles, or double a sabbath day's journey: but the first border
of this tract (which also bore the name of Bethany) was distant
but one mile, or a single sabbath day's journey.

Our Saviour led out his disciples, when he was about to
ascend, the very first region or tract of Mount Olivet, which
was called Bethany, and was distant from the city a sabbath
day's journey. And so far also from the city itself did that
tract extend itself which was called Betbpage: and .when he
was come to that place where the bounds of Betbpage and
Bethany met, and touched one another, he then ascended; in
that very place where he got upon the ass when he rode into
Jerusalem, Mark xi. l. Whereas, therefore, Josephus saith,
that Mount Olivet was but five furlongs from the city, he means
the first brink and border of it. But our Evangelist must be
understood of the place where Christ ascended, where the name
of Olivet began, as it was distinguished from Bethpage.

45 It has been supposed by Grotius, that the Gospel of St. John was originally terminated at the end of the 230 verse of chapter xx. and the remainder of the Gospel was added by the Church at Ephesus. This opinion, however, is rejected by Wetstein, Michaelis, Whitby, &c.



1. In two very large Volumes, 8vo. price 1l. 16s. in boards, inscribed, by

Permission, to the Lord Bishop of London, THE OLD TESTAMENT, arranged on the basis of Lightfoot's Chronicle, in Historical and Chronological Order, in such manner, that the Books, Chapters, Psalms, Prophecies, &c. may be read as one connected History, in the very Words of the authorized Translation. To the above are added six Indexes—the First containing an account of the Periods, Chapters, and Sections into which the Work is divided, with the Passages of Scripture comprised in each ;-the Second, in Columns, enabling the Reader to discover in what Part of the Arrangement any Chapter or Verse of the Bible may be found ;-the Third and Fourth of the Psalms and Prophecies, in Tables ; shewing in what part of the Arrangement, and after what Passage of Scripture every Psalm or Prophecy is inserted ; and likewise on what Occasion, and at what Period, they were probably writtenwith the Authority for their Place in the Arrangement;--the Fifth containing the Dates of the Events according to Dr. Hales ;--and the Sixth a General Index to the Notes. By the Rev. GEORGE TOWNSEND, M.A. of Trinity College, Cambridge. Extract from Mr. Horne's new edition of his Introduction to the Critical

Study of the Holy Scriptures, vol. ii. p. 402, and Supplement to the first edition, p. 139. “ The writer of these pages, on the completion of the present work, proposed to himself to attempt a harmony of the entire Bible. This laborious undertaking has been happily rendered unnecessary, as it respects the Old Testament, by Mr. Townsend's Arrangement. This beautifully printed, and carefully executed work, is indispensably necessary to those who are preparing for the sacred office. The notes are very appropriate, and possess the rare merit of compressing a great variety of valuable information into a small compass.”

We take our leave of the Author, returning him our best thanks for having opposed this barrier to that flood of Fanaticism, which threatens to carry every thing before it, until Reason, Religion, and Morality, are swept away into the ocean of Infidelity."-BRITISH CRITIC, Nov. 1822.
