The Treasury of Scripture Knowledge

Chapter Overview
 
1In what account the ministers ought to be had.
7We have nothing which we have not received.
9The apostles spectacles to the world, angels, and men;
13the filth and offscouring of the world;
15yet our fathers in Christ;
16whom we ought to follow.
