[An account] "Written and sealed up and hid up unto the Lord that they might not be destroyed.."
"...which is to show unto the remnant of the house of
Israel what great things the Lord hath done for their fathers; and that
they may know the covenants of the Lord, that they are not cast off for
ever; and also to the convincing of the Jew and Gentile that Jesus is
the Christ, the Eternal God, manifesting himself unto all nations."
