Christopher Benson

"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.

Leon J. Wood

Chapter 12: "Saul and Evil Spirits"

Leon Wood's book, The Holy Spirit in the Old Testament (Grand Rapids: Zondervan Publishing House, 1976) is one of the best treatments of the work of the Holy Spirit in the Old Testament. Chapter 12 deals with not only the Holy Spirit in the life of King Saul, but also the evil spirit that came upon him.

Chapter 13: "Summary Statement"

This chapter gives a concise summary of the descriptions and conclusions in Dr. Wood's book, The Holy Spirit in the Old Testament.

Francis Chenevix Trench

"The Loss of Unbelief"

This is Sermon V in Sermons on the Person, Words, and Works of our Lord Jesus Christ in which Francis Chenevix Trench offers an explanation of Mark 6:5:

"Now He could do no mighty work there, except that He laid His hands on a few sick people and healed them."

He was the older brother of Richard Chenevix Trench, author of Synonyms of the New Testament (not on this Web site), Notes on the Parables of Our Lord, and Studies in the Gospels.
