View Full Text
Edward Hitchcock's sermon on justifcation by faith, based on Jeremiah 23:6 - "And this is his name whereby he shall be called, the Lord our Righteousness." On page 6, Hitchcock wrote "...let us come to the subject we began to discuss in the morning. I proposed two questions springing out of the text - the first was why is it necessary Christ should be our righteousness? This has been considered..." in his companion sermon, number 112, "Christ our Righteousness." On the next page he wrote "We are led then to consider the second proposed question - in what sense is Christ our righteousness?" Hitchcock noted the dates and places where he had delivered this sermon between 1822 and 1825.
