Rom.x 0.4. Cant. M. 9. *TbeEpifite Law, Chrift is the endof theLev for rieghte- oufileffi to every one that beleeveth. Firfr, by fimilitude, faith Áuftin:when a man is come to the end ofa way, he can go no farther : fo when a Chrif{ian is come to Chrift, he hath no farther excellencie to Peek or go unto: inChrift there is enough andenough to reconcile him to God, and bringhim to heaven. Secondly, forperfe5lion,laith Cyril: when a thing is finifhed, it is Paid to come to an end,as namely in weavinga garment: foChrift hath fnifhied, perfected, and ful- filled the Law : he came not to deffroy, but effablifh it: fo that in him we have a perfe 1t righteoufnes to prefent Godwith- all,even as the Law required,Gal. z.16. ar. Thirdly, he is finis intentionis: the Law bids us look to Chrift, in whom only we can live: both the Moran Law, in the holy precepts of it, inapofsible in this our weak- nefe, therefore have recourfe to Chrift, Zotn. 8.3, 4. together with thecurfes and threats ofit, whereby it is a,fharpe SMhoole- matter,leading to Ohrif,Gal ,3.24.

Dedicatorie, out Chrifl and his benefits, Heb.to.t. Nov is Chrifl come (faithTertullian) who is the end ofthe Law, opening all the dark matters ofit, anciently covered under the mills of Types and Sacraments : An excellent mailer, an heavenly teacher, afetler oftruth to theuttermoll. ,/lujiin calls Moles his ceremonies, prenunciative or foretelling Ob, fervations : and faith, We are not now conflrained to obferve things ufed in the Droplets time,Non quia ills damnata,fedquia in melitts mutataJunt; notfor any evill in them, but becau/e theyare changedfor the better. What they foretold, and how they are changed for the better, this Treati,fe in part difcovereth,and I purpofe not now todif courfe. Thele glorious times ofthe Gofpel fliew evidently, how much the truth ex- celieth the fhadow : the vertue common to the ancient beleevers, as well as unto us: Chrifi Iefusyflerday, and to day, and thefame or ever: but as the manifef$ation is more cleare, fo the grace is more plentifull and comfortable.

Even now, in this marvellous light of the Gofpell, wehave our divine ceremonies and facraments, fee him afarre off, knowbut in part, darkly as in aglaffe, and receive our bell contentment by the acts of faith, while the Word and Spirit make us know the things freely given us ofGod in Chriff Iefus. But time (hall bee, when (to fay nothing of the efiate of the Church after the ruine of Antichrifl, and calling of the Iewes) we shall in heaven fee him whomwe beleeved, face to face, clearly,perfeély,irnmediately, without Sa- craments or Types, in the fullell vifion, nearefl union, andabfolutefl fruition.
