The Life of Our Life-The Public Life of Our Lord Jesus Christ-The Preaching of the Cross Part 2 by Fr Henry James Coleridge

In this book we find the most convincing proof of the truth that the revelations of God to us must be measured, not by the multitude of words in which they are conveyed, but by the importance of the matters of which they speak. The reader will be astonished at the small bulk of the materials on which this remarkable work is founded and will find it easy and enjoyable to read.

From the Author's Preface:

The present volume of the Public Life of our Lord is entirely occupied with the larger portion of the great addition made by St. Luke to the Evangelical history, as he found it after the labours of St. Matthew and St. Mark. This addition, which fills more than a third of his whole Gospel, contains his gleanings as to a part of our Lord's Life which had no chronicler before him, having been spent out of Galilee, and before the time came for the Passion. It thus happens that this volume is entirely devoted to passages of the third Gospel, as to which St. Luke is our only authority. It was a part of our Lord's teaching which left many traces behind it of which we gather the importance from the passage in the Acts in which St. Peter refers to the preaching of his Master in the country parts of Judaea, properly so called. Of this we have no other record in the Gospels.
