The Puritan Eye

* This excerpt was abridged and edited for the modern reader from Samuel Miller, The Ruling Elder (Philadelphia, Presbyterian Board of Publication, 1832), pp. 29-40.


* I am indebted to John Owen for much of this argument, from The Death of Death in the Death of Christ (Carlisle, PA: The Banner of Truth Trust [1852] 1989) p. 83.


* Some may still be asking why I advocate the study of pagan authors. If the inquirer has not read my previous defences, let him do so. If he has, well. . . . he that hath ears to hear. . .

Doctrine 101

* Please see the footnote under Callihan's "Poetics."

* See Meredith G. Kline, By Oath Consigned: A Reinterpretation of the Covenant Signs of Circumcision and Baptism (Grand Rapids, MI: Wm. B. Eerdmans Publ. Co., 1968), p. 36. O. Palmer Robertson, The Christ of the Covenants (Phillipsburg, NJ: Presbyterian and Reformed Publishing Co., 1980), pp. 14-15. The omission of the term "covenant" in discussing a relationship between God and man does not negate its covenantal nature. A covenant exists by virtue of the nature of the bond, the promised blessings and curses, the sovereign administration, etc., and not by virtue of the appearance of the term "covenant." Thus, the order established at creation appears to be covenantal in character. Moreover, Jeremiah 33:20-21 considers God's creative work to be as covenantally significant as His covenant with David: "Thus says the Lord, 'If you can break my covenant for the day, and my covenant for the night, so that day and night will not be at their appointed time, then My covenant may also be broken with David My servant that he shall not have a son to reign on his throne and with the Levitical priests, My ministers." See also Jeremiah 33:25-26.
