A WORK IN DEFENCE OF THE MIRACULOUS ELEMENT IN OUR LORD’S MINISTRY UPON EARTH, BOTH AS AGAINST RATIONALISTIC IMPUGNERS AND CERTAIN ORTHODOX DEFENDERS, BY THE LATE JOHN PICKARD OWEN, WITH A MEMOIR OF THE AUTHOR BY WILLIAM BICKERSTETH OWEN.
This particular design may appear sometimes, but not always, nor often. Thus I think that the particular design which St. Matthew had in view whilst he was writing the history of the Resurrection, was to attest the faithful performance of Christ's promise to his disciples to go before them into Galilee; because he alone, except Mark, who seems to have taken it from him, has recorded this promise, and he alone has confined his narrative to that single appearance to the disciples which fulfilled it. It was the preconcerted, the great and most public manifestation of our Lord's person.
