"The Offerings of Cain and Abel: Lecture X"

Why was Abel's sacrifice accepted by the Lord but Cain's was not? There are two basic views on this question. The first view is that the Lord had previously instituted animal sacrifices as the mode of worship and forgiveness of sin. Abel, then, obeyed the Lord while Cain did not. The second view is that no such instruction had been given by the Lord and that we must look elsewhere for the reason Abel's sacrifice was accepted and Cain's was not. Christopher Benson takes the second view. In his book, On Scripture Difficulties (1843), Benson includes three lectures defending his view and answering the arguments for the opposing view.
