It has been asserted, that the salvation to be wrought out by the Messiah is temporal, and only temporal; and we have been challenged to show that any spiritual salvation was promised, and to prove that Jesus of Nazareth is the true Messiah. There is one text that will prove both. Isaiah 52. 18,—53. 12. Of this prophecy, I assert that it refers to the Messiah, and that it was fulfilled in Jesus of Nazareth.
