as one that beateth the air: but I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection:
lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a
castaway” It cannot be said, then, because we have not to bear the burden and

Supper and the typical lamb into the sacrament of His atoning sacrifice, and the
