(abu dhabi)


According to the letter of the history, by the dead man here recorded is to he understood the dead body of a man, and by his being the only son of his mother, who was a widow, is further to be understood what is literally expressed in those words. But by this dead man, according to the spiritual sense involved in this and in all other miracles worked by Jesus Christ, is to be understood a dead principle in the church, which principle is here called the only son of his mother, who was a widow, and therefore denotes the principle of faith or truth, this being the first-born of the church, which church is here called mother, as giving birth, through divine operation, to all heavenly principles ; and widow, as being deprived of the principles of truth, and yet in the desire of conjunction with it.
