Aristotle held that tragedy portrayed the downfall of a king or noble, whose fall from grace was the result of a tragic flaw—generally held to be hubris, or an excessive amount of pride. For Willy, the success of that dream hinges on appearance rather than on substance, on wearing a white collar rather than a blue one.
The Blood of the New Testament by D. Moody "For this is My blood of the New Testament, which is shed for many, for the remission of sins. I want to take up some passages referring to the subject of the Precious Blood in the New Testament. Soon after we came back from Europe to this country, I received a letter from a lady saying that she had looked forward to our coming back to this country with a great deal of interest, and that her interest remained after we had commenced our services until I came to the lecture on the blood, when she gave up all hope of our doing any good.
In closing that letter she said ; " Where did Jesus ever teach the perilous and barbarous doctrine that men were to be redeemed by the shedding of His blood? Take the blessed doctrine of the blood out of my Bible and my capital is gone, and I've got to take to something else. He said to me: Moody, you are either all right and I am all wrong, or else I am right and you are all wrong.
You have heard me preach, and know what doctrines I hold, whereas I have not heard you, and don't know what you preach.
I tell you the moment a man breaks away from this doctrine of blood, religion becomes a sham, because the whole teaching of this book is of one story, and this is that Christ came into the world and died for our sins.
I want to call your attention to the nineteenth chapter of John and the thirty-fourth verse: It was the breaking of the crown of hell and the giving of the crown of Heaven. When the Roman soldier drove out the blood, out came the water, and it touched that spear, and it was not long before Christ had that Roman government.
It is a throne and a footstool now, and by and by Page 35 it will sway the earth from pole to pole. This earth has been redeemed by the blessed blood of Christ. Peter says in his first Epistle 1: Why, the poorest thing is gold in Heaven.
But gold couldn't do it. The law had been broken, and the penalty of death had come upon us, and it required life to redeem us. Now, it says we shall be redeemed.
I am no longer my own, I am His. He has ransomed me. A friend of mine once told me that he was going out from Dublin one day, and met a boy who had one of those English sparrows in his hand. It was frightened, and just seemed to sit as if it pined for liberty, but the boy held it so tight that it could not get away.
The boy's strength was too much for the bird. You will never tame him; he is wild. A bargain was made, and the sparrow was transferred to the man's hand. He opened his hand, and at first the bird did not seem to realize it had liberty, but by and by it flew away, and as it went it chirped, as much to say, "You have redeemed me.
Satan was stronger than we were. He has had six thousand years' experience.
Jesus did not come to buy us from Satan, but from the penalty of our sin.
