The Puritan Eye

* This column was edited and abridged for the modern reader by Douglas Wilson. The original can be found in Richard Baxter, Baxter's Practical Works, Vol. 1 (Ligonier, PA, Soli Deo Gloria, 1990), pp. 424-426.


* John Owen applies the sanctification stated here, not to the apostate, but to Christ Himself, "who was sanctified and dedicated unto God to be an eternal High Priest by the blood of the covenant which He offered unto God" (p. 206, Hebrews: The Epistle of Warning, Kregel Publ., 1985). However, I cannot find any place in Scripture where Christ Himself was said to be set apart by His blood (with the possible exception of Heb. 9:12). The antecedent of the pronoun seems to fall back more naturally to the apostate described by the entire verse. But even if Owen is right, one still could not deduce that the sanctified here is regenerate.


* All quotations are taken from Plutarch, Lycurgus ; Dryden, trans. in Great Books of the Western World , Encyclopaedia Britannica, 1952, vol. 14.
