CLASS NOTES ON SACRED HISTORY.
I. SAMUEL - NEHEMIAH.
J. W. M c G A R V E Y,
Professor of Sacred History in the College of the Bible,
JOHN MARCROM, PUBLISHER.
For a general Preface to the series of which this volume is the second, the reader is referred to volume I. The present Volume deals with a much larger portion of the Bible than any of the others, and with a portion that is more neglected than any other by the average Bible student. The large amount of matter included, together with the difficult method by which much of it must be gathered out of the prophetical books, necessitates much abbreviation and the omission of some details in order to get over the ground in one college year; and even when thus reduced the task imposed on the student is severer than that of any other year in the Sacred History course. It has been a very laborious task to arrange all the matter in the form here presented, and the author cannot flatter himself that in every particular the form is the best; but such as it is, he put it in print, that criticism and further use may test its merits.
This electronic edition of J. W. McGarvey's Class Notes on Sacred History has been prepared from copies of the books obtained from Philipps Memorial Library, Bethany College (Volumes I, II, IV) and the Disciples of Christ Historical Society (Volume III). The text was transcribed and formatted between December 1995 and May 1996; it was released into the public domain in 1996 as note files for the Online Bible. Archives of the files are available at the Bible Foundation e-Texts Library. The first three volumes are of the third edition; as I have not yet been able to locate that edition for the fourth volume, the first edition has been used.
In the printed text, the questions (and answers) are presented in paragraph form; in the electronic version, they are presented in bulleted lists to facilitate reading. Pagination in the electronic version has been represented by placing the page number in brackets following the last complete word on the printed page. Inconsistencies in spelling, capitalization, punctuation, and typography have been retained; however, corrections for misspellings and other accidental corruptions have been offered. Emendations are detailed in a critical apparatus.
Throughout, the citations to "Lands of the Bible" and "L. of B." refer J. W. McGarvey's Lands of the Bible: A Geographical and Topographical Description of Palestine, with Letters of Travel in Egypt, Syria, Asia Minor, and Greece (St. Louis: John Burns, 1880; Cincinnati: Standard Publishing, 1880; Philadelphia: Lippincott, 1881; Louisville: Guide Printing and Publishing Company, 1890).
Addenda and corrigenda are earnestly solicited.
