It is impossible to conceive of a writing more strongly marked within the same limits by those unstudied assonances of thought, sen timent, and expression, which indicate an author's hand, than this Short epistle as compared with Paul's other productions. Paley has a paragraph in his Horas Paulina), which illustrates this feature of the letter in a very just and forcible manner. It will be found also that all the historical allusions which the apostle makes to events in his own life, or to other persons with whom he was connected, har monize perfectly with the statements or incidental intimations contained in the Acts of the Apostles or the other epistles of Paul. It belongs to the commentary to point out the instances of such agree ment. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
