Preface-Judah and Simeon carry on the war against the Canaanites, and defeat Adoni-bezek, who is justly requited for his cruelty. Jerusalem taken.
The sons of Anak in Hebron slain. Othniel taken Debir, and in reward hath Achash Caleb's daughter to wife. The Kenites dwell in the country
of Judah. Hormah, Gaza, Askelon, and Ekron, are taken by Judah and Simeon. Hebron is given to Caleb. The Jebusites are not
expelled out of Jerusalem. The house of Joseph take Bethel. Luz built. The Canaanites are not wholly driven out by Manasseh,
by Ephraim, by Zebulun, by Asher, and by Naphtali. The Amorites force Dan into the mountain.
Preface-Ananias and Sapphira, profanely tempting the Holy Ghost with a lie, at Peter's rebuke fall down dead. The apostles work many miracles
to the great increase of the faith. They ae all imprisoned, but released by an angel, and sent to preach openly in the temple: being brought
before the council, they support their witness with great freedom. The council are restrained from killing them by the advice of Gamaliel,
but beat and dismiss them with a charge not to speak in the name of Jesus. They rejoice in their sufferings, and cease not to preach
Christ both in public and private.

Q21 - How did Christ, being the son of God become man?
A-Christ the Son of God, became man by taking to himself a true body, and a reasonable soul, being conceived by the power of the
Holy Ghost in the Virgin Mary, and born of her, yet without sin.

Hallelujah! What a Saviour - For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God
in him. 1 Corinthians 5 v 21
You know brethren, that the pardon and justification of sinners is spoken of in different ways in the Bible. In Romans 3 v 24, it is said,
'Being justified freely by his grace, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.' Again, in Romans 5 v 19, 'For as by one man's
disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.'
But observe that these words express it more fully. I think if means that those of you who have come to the Lord Jesus, His righteousness.
And, brethren, observe what a provision is here for sinners - for the chief of sinners; for it matters not how great or how small a sinner you are;
if you come to Christ, His righteousness will cover you so that none of your sin will be seen. O my friends, is not this a gospel worth preaching?
May you now say as Luther used to do, 'Thou art made my sin, and I am made thy righteousness.'
