God, who at sundry times and in divers manners spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,…
1. As the Son is above the servants, so is Christ above the prophets. And no reason, that the Jews should think so much of Moses, and the prophets, as for them to misregard Christ's doctrine and stick to the Levitical service under pretence of estimation of the prophets.
2. The glory of the gospel is greater than the glory of the law.
3. The glory of the ministerial calling of preachers of the gospel is by so much the greater, as it hath the Son of God first man in the roll thereof; as first preacher, and prince of preachers.
4. Christ's sermons are all of them directed unto us: and so much the more highly should the doctrine of the gospel be esteemed of by us.
(D. Dickson, M. A.)
