Sect. 3. Quakers say that Jesuis instituted no new Sups

per distinct from that of the Passover, and

which was to render null and void that en-

joined at Capernaum, as a rite of the Chris-

tian Church--no such institution to be col-

lected from St. Matthew, St. Mark, or St.

John

403

Sect. 4. -or from St. Luke-St. Luke only says, that

all future Passover-suppers of the Disciples
with Christ were to be spiritual-but if, as
Jews, they could not all at once abdicate the
Pasșover to which they had been educated,
they were to celebrate it with a new meaning
but no

acknowledged permission of it to

others

408

Sect. 5. --for from St. Paul-St. Paul only says, that

the Passover, as spiritualized by Jesus, was

allowed to his disciples, or to the Jewish
converts who could not all at once lay aside
their prejudices concerning it, but that it was
to last only for a time different opinions
about this time--that of the Quakers con-
cetning it

Sect. 6. Had a new Supper, distinct from that of the

Passover, been intended as a ceremonial of the

Christian Church, it would have been com=

manded to others besides the Disciples, and

its duration would not have been limited-

reasons from St. Paul, to show that he him-

self did not probably consider it as a Chris-

tian ordinance-whereas the Supper, enjoined

at Capernaum, was to be eternal

and univer-

sal--and an essential with all Christians . 424

PECULIAR CUSTOMS

OF THE

QUAKERS.

CHAPTER I.

SECTION I.

Marriage-Quakers differ in many respects from

others on the subject of marriage-George Fox introduced regulations concerning it-protested against the usual manner of the celebration of it-gave an example of what he recommended present regulations of the Quakers on this subject.

In the continuation of the Customs of the Quakers, a subject which I propose to resume in the present volume, I shall begin with that of Marriage.

The Quakers differ from others in many of their regulations concerning this custom. They differ also in the manner of the celebration of it. And as they differ in these

respects,
