Treasury of Scripture Knowledge
1 John 1:1
Concerning the Logos, the author of Life, we declare what was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we have consider'd, and what has been the object of our touch.
1 John 5:9
if we receive the testimony of men, the testimony of God is greater: now this is the testimony, which God has given us of his son.
The Logos became incarnate, and had his tabernacle among us, being full of grace and truth; and we contemplated his glory, such glory as the Monogenes derived from the father.
I declare unto thee, we speak what we know, and testify what we have seen; but you do not receive our testimony.
You search the scriptures, for you think by their means to have eternal life, and they are the very writings which do testify of me.
but when the advocate is come, whom I will send to you from the father, even the spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the father, he shall testify of me.
and when Silas and Timothy were arriv'd from Macedonia, Paul with great concern remonstrated to the Jews, that Jesus was the Messiah:
1 Peter 5:12
I formerly writ to you a short epistle, by Silvanus, I think, a faithful brother, to declare and testify to you, that the true dispensation of God is that to which you are attach'd.
1 John 4:10
and what heightens his love, was this, that it was not we who first loved God, but it was he that first loved us, and sent his son to expiate our sins.
for he whom God hath sent, saith nothing but what is divine: for God hath given him the spirit without restriction.
but I have a better witness than that of John: for the works which my father hath order'd me to finish, those very works that I do, bear me witness, that 'tis the father who sent me.
how can you say that I blaspheme, I whom the father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, because I said I am the son of God?
for the son of man is come to seek, and to save that which was lost.
