"Now I am *not* prepared to say that it was alcoholic wine Paul prescribed for Timothy. The unfermented wine would have nutritious qualities the other would not, and be a cooling drink, something like pure cream tartar, which, for a fevered system, is a refreshing, cooling drink." Entertaining exegesis from Susquehanna county in support of McKenney's claim that "the Lord never made alcoholic drinks." (He seems to imply in one instance that grape jelly may very well have been used at the Last Supper in the place of wine.) Ink autograph price cancelation on the front wrapper (likely authorial); unsigned ink presentation inscription (again, likely authorial) to a Sabbath School library at the head of the first page. OCLC notes six locations (CSmH, KHi, DNLM, NN, and two at MH).

Price: $75.00
