[blocks in formation]

Dr. Townson's Opinion concerning the Evangelists. From his

Discourses on the Four Gospels. 4to. Oxford. 1778. That St. Matthow was the first writer of a Gospel; that he composed it early for the instruction of the Jewish people, and published it in Judea ; and that he was not only anterior to St. Mark and St. Luke, but wrote several years before either of them.

Pages 23, 101. That St. Mark was the second Evangelist; that his Gospel was re. visçd or even dictated by St. Peter; that it was compiled for a mixt society of Jewish and Gentile converts, and according to all appearances published at Rome or in Italy: and that it was published about the end of the year 56 or 60.

Pages 23. 168. That the next Evangelist, St. Luke, wrote with a more peculiar view to the converted Gentiles, and, as it seems likely, in Achaia.

Page 24. That St. John had seen the three former Gospels, and bore testimony to the truth of them ; and wrote his own, probably after the destruction of Jerusalem, in Asia Minor.
