It was otherwise with the Jews; they had a grant of this world; they entered the
vineyard in the morning; they had time before them; they might reckon on the
future. They were bid “go their way, eat their bread with joy, and drink their wine

Ye shall seek Me: and as I said unto the Jews, Whither I go, ye cannot come, so
now I say unto you.” On this, “Simon Peter said unto Him, Lord, whither goest
Thou?” and when our Lord answered him, that whither He went, he could not
“bore witness to the truth” before Pilate as a Prophet, suffered on the cross as our
Priest, while He was also “Jesus of Nazareth, the King of the Jews.” And so His
Apostles after Him, and in His likeness, were kings, yet without the pomp; soldiers
