theWord Version: 3.x - 4.x

THE author of the following annotations being a minister among the Wesleyan Methodists, the sentiments held by that body, and deducible, as they conscientiously believe, from Holy Scripture, may be expected to be found in them. Nothing is, however, stated in the controversial spirit; and he leaves to all the same liberty to investigate the sense of the Divine word, which he claims himself, without breach of charity. Three copious commentaries {Those of Dr. Coke, Mr. Benson, and Dr. Adam Clarke.} on the whole Bible, exclusive of the Notes of Mr. Wesley, have appeared in the religious society for whose use the present work is also principally designed. This is a gratifying fact, and affords honourable proof of the love of the Scriptures, and the desire to read them to edification, which characterize the Wesleyan Methodists. Within so short a period of time, no other religious body has ever produced so many commentators of equal rank, or given encouragement to the publication of so many commentaries, and those of a very ample size.

To none of them does the present attempt affect to be a rival. It is confined to the New Testament only; and it is not like the others, either in what is often called a family or a practical and devotional commentary. Its plan is therefore different; its sole object being the elucidation of the Scriptures; and by this means to lay the foundation, rather than suggest those practical and pious uses to which they must be applied if they make us “wise unto salvation.” The leading rule by which the annotator has been conducted, is to afford help to the attentive general reader whenever he should come to a term, a phrase, or a whole passage, the meaning of which is not obvious; and to exhibit the true theology of the sacred volume. The notes are therefore brief upon the plainer passages, and most copious where explication appeared necessary. Nor has any difficulty been evaded; but the author has applied himself earnestly to open the meaning of the most obscure passages according to the ability which God has given him. The notes are all original, except in a very few instances, and then they are acknowledged, and, as far as the author is conscious, he has throughout most honestly given his views of the meaning of the Divine word without bias of party, or prejudice, as in the sight of God. He commits the fruit of the study of many years past to the blessing of God, and the candour of the reader.

The following chapters were present in the commentary. The commentary is available at Book, Chapter and Verse level

Matthew - 28 Chapters
Mark - 16 Chapters
