No candid Jew will deny that the controversy between the Jews and Christians is of the utmost importance. It involves in it the questions Whether the Messiah, so long looked for by the Jewish nation, be not already come? Whether Jesus was not this Messiah ? and, Whether the Jews, by continuing to deny Him, be not guilty every day of crucifying the Son of God afresh,
inasmuch as they still confess and justify the deed of their fathers ? ,
I lately saw it mentioned in a periodical publication, that the Jewish writer, David Levi, had, in his controversy with Dr. Priestley, proposed, as the fairest method of deciding the momentous question, an examination of all the prophecies concerning the Messiah, from Moses to Malachi, and a comparison thereof with the acts recorded of Jesus in the New Testament, to see whether they have been fulfilled in his person or not.
It was further stated, that no Christian writer has yet undertaken to answer Levi; and that this is often mentioned by the Jews in such a way as to show that they attach much weight to the silence of their Christian opponents.
I felt my curiosity to be aroused by this circumstance, and I immediately procured a copy of Levi's work, as far as it seems to be yet published, viz. his three first volumes; and have perused it with that attention which the importance of the subject demands, and which is more
