Quote to Consider:
John Owen: "The apostle takes it here for
granted that God designed a ... state of perfection, unto the church;
and that as unto its worship as well as unto its faith and obedience.
We find, by the event, that it answered not the divine wisdom and
goodness to bind up the church, during its whole sojourn in this
world, unto a worship so carnal, burdensome, so imperfect, so unsuited
to express his grace and kindness towards it, or its sense thereof.
And who can but pity the woeful condition of the present Jews, who can
conceive of no greater blessedness than the restoration of this
burdensome service? So true is it what the apostle says, the veil is
upon them unto this present day; yea, blindness is on their minds,
that they can see no beauty but only in things carnal: and like their
forefathers, who preferred the bondage of Egypt, because of their
flesh-pots, before all the liberty and blessings of Canaan; so do they
their old bondage-state because of some temporal advantages it was
attended withal, before the glorious liberty of the sons of God" (Hebrews,
vol. 5, p. 419).
