II. The Pentateuch teaches us, that the Patriarchal dis-

pensation preceded the Levitical : and we ourselves

perceive, that the Christian has succeeded it, p. 5

III. The three dispensations, being equally from God,

must have some mutual connection. They are con-

uected by their common relation to one object. That

object is the Messiah, p. 6

IV. As they are thus connected, a single purpose is uni-

formly pursued through the whole succession. Nor

does the succession itself argue any mutability on the

part of God; for the general analogy of nature

shews, that his works are gradually brought to per-

fection, p. 8

V. Respecting the drift of the three dispensations, and the

aspect under which their common object is set be-

fore us, p. 10

1. Their drift is the recovery. of man from the effects

of the fall, p. 10 :

2. Their common object s sēt before us, as presid-

ing from first to:iast over the ministry of reconci-

liation, p. 15

VI. The two first dispensations always look forward to

the last or consummating dispensation, p. 16

1. Proof, that this is the case with Patriarchism, p. 16

(1.) From the promise of the woman's Seed, p. 16

(2.) From the promise of a future Saviour to the

patriarchs, p. 17

(3.) From the prophecy of Jacob, p. 17

2. Proof, that this is also the case with the Levitical

dispensation, p. 18

3. Proof, from the third dispensation not intimating

any successor, p. 20

(1.) This may be argued, both from the reason of

the thing, p. 20

(2.) And from the testimony of all the three dis-

pensations, p. 21
