Grace and Peace to such as desire to know when the Lords Day doth begin and end;
The chief Heads of this Treatise OF HOLY TIME.
A TABLE OF Such Scriptures as are Illustrated or Explaned.
Errata of the second part of this Treatise.
CHAP. I. Proving that the First Darknesse in Gen. 1. 5. was not a compleat Night. By three Reasons.
CHAP. II. Proving that Moses by the terme Evening in Gen. 1. 5. doth not me an the whole night; But the latter halfe of the artificial day, and the first halfe of the night.
SECT. 2. It is further evident that Gnereb must be taken for such a connexion of things, as doth still preserve the Species distinct, because Gnar∣baiim in the duall number is put for the connexion of any two things without confounding their species; But especially it is Eleven times over put for the two parts of the Naturall E∣vening.
SECT. III. Proving by seven demonstrative grounds, that the Naturall Even∣ing begins at Mid-day at the first declining of the Sun.
SECT. 4. Bring a Description of the twofold Division of the first Naturall Day, how and in what order every part of it was shaped, named and framed together.
CHAP. III. Proving that the time of the first Darkness was called Mor∣ning at last, namely as soon as that Darkness was for∣med into a Night.
SECT. I. Proving that the time of the first Darkness was called Boker, the Mor∣ning, at last.
SECT. 2. Proving that the Morning doth begin in the dark Night.
SECT. 3. Proving that the Morning in all likelihood doth begin at mid-night, be∣sides the former certain grounds from the exact beginning and ending of the Evening.
CHAP. IV. Proving, That the Jewes Custom in beginning their weekly Sabbath at the Sun-set Evening, was occasioned by their Ceremonial Custom, namely, Because the persons that were ceremonially purified from their ceremonial Defilements, were commanded to begin their new day of cleanness then; and hence it follows, first, That that accidental beginning of the Day must not be accounted for the true beginning of the Natural Day; And Secondly, Hence it follows, That it is not the right time for us Christians to begin our Lords Day at the Sun-set Evening, as the Jews did by their ce∣remonial Custom onely.
CHAP. V. Proving that the Passeover did begin and end according to the Natural Evening, from mid-day to mid-night.
CHAP. VI. Proving that the Day of Reconciliation was an extraordinary long Sabbath, and an extraordinary long Fasting-day, and therefore the beginning of this day ought not to be alleged as an exemplary Pattern, neither for the beginning of any o∣ther Fasting-day, nor yet for the beginning of the Lords Day.
CHAP. VII. Answering their Opinion more particularly that hold the Lords day to begin at Evening; And four Objections are Answered.
CHAP. VIII. Proving that the punctual time of Christs Resurrection was in the morning, just at Sun-rising.
