• They do not the same in their own name, but in Christ's, and do minister by his
commission and authority.'-ART. xxvi.

• The ministry of things divine is a function which, as God did himself institute, so
neither may men undertake the same but by authority and power given them in lawful
manner.'-HOOKER, v. 77.

is from Christ.' ---BISHOP REYNOLDS, SERMON xxiii. Works, Vol. v. p. 352.
