Excerpt from Immanuel, or the Life of Jesus Christ Our Lord: From His Incarnation to His Ascension
If this be admitted, and if what the Church has declared from the begin ning concerning its Lord be received as truc, - that he was not merely a Jewish mechanic, of a rare and reviving religious genius, but was the only begotten Son of God, whom illustrious promises had foretold, and whose coming to the world Opened heaven to its hope, and made history sublime, - then the biographies which present him to mankind become, in comparison of all other documents, of a paramount interest, and a value transcendent; and then the facts related of him in these biographies, however they surpass what men elsewhere have experienced or observed, show a fitness to him, as well as an intimate harmony with each other, which thoughtful readers must confess. In the utmost height of their mystery and sublimity, they are only, after all, on a level with the nature then attributed to him.
