It was the great error of the Jews, that they practised the duties of their worship with hearts as carnal as their rites themselves were... But of this error there is little danger now, since in the fulfillment of the purposes of the legal dispensation the Christian distinctly perceives the mystic and hidden purpose it was intended to accomplish.-from "The Daily Worship"Ostensibly an appreciation of the rites and ceremonies of the ancient Jews and their importance in the development of Christianity, this 1848 volume is most striking today for its old-fashioned concepts of tolerance and understanding. From the process of siting and erecting the ancient temple on Mount Moriah in Jerusalem to the sacred duties and ritualistic garments of the high priests of old to explanations of the deeper meanings of Jewish festivals such as Pentecost and Passover, Rev. Fraser, in attempting to connect us to Judaism's perception of God's hand at work in the universe, instead offers the contemporary reader remarkable insight into the religious mind-set of the mid 19th century.Robert W. Fraser also wrote Ebb and Flow: The Curiosities and Marvels of the Sea-shore; A Book for Young People (1860).

Pagina 20 - But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.
