The Presbyterian minister William Buell Sprague (1795-1876), exhorts his hearers to support missionary efforts to the Jews. His text is Numbers 23:23; "According to this time it shall be said of Jacob and Israel, What hath God wrought?" "It will be no misapplication of this passage, to use it, as I design to do on the present occasion, in illustration of the importance of this wonderful people, as evinced by the dealings of God towards them, and the purposes which He accomplishes by them." - p. 6. "Jesus introduced not a new religion, but a new dispensation...the Jews were, for a considerable time, the sole guardians and promotors of Christianity." - p. 18.
