A91793 Justification by Christ alone, a fountaine of life and comfort, declaring that the whole worke of mans salvation was accomplished by Jesus Christ upon the crosse, in that he tooke away & healed all his, from all sinnes, and presented them to God holy without fault in his sight. And the objections against this are answered, for the consolation of such as beleive; & that they may not ascribe that which is proper to Christs preistly office, to their beleiving. / By Samuel Richardson. Richardson, Samuel, fl. 1643-1658.; Kiffin, William, 1616-1701. 1647 (1647) Wing R1408; Thomason E392_32; ESTC R201586 62,108 73
