On September 24, 1871
Venerable John Henry Newman, C.O., preached a sermon, of which the following notes survive:

The Old and New Testaments

1. INTROD.—On the gospel.

2. 'The Lord said to my Lord.'

3. Great truths put obscurely in the law. Both as regards prophecy and religion and morals.

4. The law of Moses and the Old Testament like a bud, and the new law the open flower, e.g.—

5. The first commandment.

6. The thoughts of the heart—'with all thy heart,' Matt. v.; 'If thy eye is single.'

7. Impurity, Matt. v.—divorce and polygamy.

8. The second great commandment—parable of the good Samaritan.

9. But something the same—faith, the Church, the order of ministers, and rites.

10. But all these might be dead without love of God, etc.

11. Let us beware lest we are outside Christians.
