LECTURE I. March 6.

The Signals of terrible Judgments foretold to come before the Restoration of the Jews, produced and explained.

1.

MATT. xvi. 1, 2, 31 4.

HE Pharifees with the Sadducees, came, and tempting Jefus, defired he would give them a Sign from Heaven.

2. He answered, and faid unto them, When it is Evening ye fay,

See before, Page 602-610. I come now to the Predictions of thefe Signals themselves.
