1 Kings 15:10 Parallel
Clarke's Commentary on the Bible

His mother's name - Our translators thought that grandmother was likely to be the meaning, and therefore have put it in the margin.

Whether it is Proper to Christ to be Head of the Church?
Objection 1: It seems that it is not proper to Christ to be Head of the Church.

Therefore it seems that with equal reason any other man than Christ might be head of the Church. Objection 2: Further, Christ is called Head of the Church from His bestowing grace on the Church's members. But it belongs to others
