Necessity of Christ's exaltation. It has respect to his divine and
human nature; to his body, soul, and person; and his mediato-
rial office; it includes power over all creatures.
LETTER II.-Resurrection of Christ,

19

It was typified and predicted in the Old Testament, and foretold
by Christ. Objections answered.

LETTER III.-The subject continued,

28

to draw their affections from earth to heaven.

LETTER VII.-The intercession of Christ,
