gation of Patriarchism; p. 222

II. But, as the Patriarchal dispensation was abrogated

when the Levitical dispensation was promulged, the

latter required the sanction of miracles, as an evidence

that it indeed came from God, p. 222

1. Moses therefore, as the prophet of the Levitical

dispensation was empowered to work miracles, p.

III. On the same principle, when the Levitical dispensa-

sign, p. 291

(3.) The outward sign therefore and the inward

grace in Baptism are not necessarily inseparable,

p. 292

3. The efficacy of the sacrament depends upon the

worthiness of the recipient, p. 292.
