PREFACE.

The questions and answers in this book are designed to aid Sabbath School and Bible Class teachers, in the examination of their pupils, to assist scholars in preparing for reviews and exhibitions, and to answer as a substitute Text Book for St. Matthew's Gospel, for certain classes.

The passages of Scripture referred to, are illustrative and parallel texts. The whole combined will answer as a brief commentary; and a harmony of the Gospels, so far as Matthew is embraced in the others.

It has been the author's intention to make the answers as brief and concise as possible, to render it easy of commitment to the learner, and to adapt, as far as he could, the language and sentiment to the capacity of children. If further explanation be needed in certain cases, it will devolve on the teachers to furnish the addition as occasion shall require.
