It is clear, both theologically and historically, that the New Testament is the continuation and fruit of the Old, and that the doctrine concerning our Lord which is essential to a right understanding, either of the Gospel history or of the theology of the Incarnation, must rest on the prophecies taken in the largest sense, in which they include the whole series of the providential arrangements of God, by means of which the actual mystery of his supreme condescension was ushered in, and the world prepared for its own astonishing elevation. This volume tells us of the preparation which was made for the coming of Christ in the world at large, in the chosen people, and in the persons more immediately connected with Christ’s advent.
