Examine more fully the life history of such an individual [i.e. Jesus]….He was brought up in frugality and poverty. He did not receive a complete education. He had not studied systems and opinions…. How could such a person…have been able to teach in a manner not at all to be despised….so that not only the rustic and the ignorant persons were won by His words, but also many of those who were distinguished by their wisdom?... Now, would not anyone who investigated with ordinary care the nature of these facts be struck with amazement at this man’s victory? … This man, in addition to His other merits, is an objection of admiration for His wisdom, His miracles, and His power of government.
