Footnotes

  1. 2 Timothy 1:9 He showeth with how great benefits God hath bound us to maintain boldly and constantly his glory which is joined with our salvation, and reckoneth up the causes of our salvation, to wit, that free and eternal purpose of God to save us in Christ which was to come, whereby it should come to pass, that we should at length be freely called of God by the preaching of the Gospel, to Christ the destroyer of death and author of immortality.
  2. 2 Timothy 1:9 He sayeth that that grace was given us from everlasting, unto which we were predestinate from everlasting. So that the doctrine of foreseen faith and foreseen works, is clean contrary to the doctrine which preached and teacheth the grace of God.
  3. 2 Timothy 1:9 Before that course of years, which hath run on ever since the beginning of the world.
  4. 2 Timothy 1:10 Hath caused life and immortality to appear.
  5. 2 Timothy 1:11 That is, the Gospel which the Apostle preached.
