After Supper Discourse: ‘Lacked Ye Any Thing?’

Considerations by the Way

An ancient philosopher, as death draws near, prepares his students.

We shall not presume to anticipate the judgment of our fellow-citizens throughout the Union on these important letters, by interposing any comments of our own.—Four Letters on the Important Subject of Government, 1802.



Lacked Ye Any Thing?

But wilt thou know, O vain man, that faith without works is dead?—James 2:20.


AND he said unto them, When I sent you without purse, and scrip, and shoes, lacked ye any thing? And they said, Nothing.

Then said he unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one.

For I say unto you, that this that is written must yet be accomplished in me, And he was reckoned among the transgressors: for the things concerning me have an end.

And they said, Lord, behold, here are two swords. And he said unto them, It is enough.

Luke 22:35-38.
