for

The name

of

this

Sacrament

hath in

it the

occafion,

for

it

was

(by

God)

therefore inhituted

in

memoriall

of

their

great

deliverance

in

igypt,when

the defiroying

Angel

(who

flew

all

borne

in

in one

paired

over

all

the

Ifraelites

houles,

whole

doores

and polls

were

firiked

with

the blood

of

the

Pafchall Lamb

flaine

and

eaten

in that

houfe

.

Wherein

the

godly Jews

were

not

to

fixe

their

eyes in

that

externall figne,

or

the

tem-

porary deliverance

fignified

;

but

to

call

their

eye

of

faith

vpon the

Meffiah

and

true

Pafchall

Lamb

;

by

means

of

whom,

the

wrath

and

revenge

of

God

paffeth

over

all

thofe,

whole

foules

are

fprinkled

with

his

blood,

and

who

by

true faith

feed

upon

him.

And

therefore,how-
