The Sacred Scripture (Rogers translation)

This is a translation of: Doctrina Nova Hierosolyma de Scriptura Sacra by Emanuel Swedenborg in 1763

Translated into English by Rev. N. Bruce Rogers


This short work offers a well-structured explanation of how God reveals truths to us via the written Word and how the Old and New Testaments are written by means of correspondences between spiritual and natural things. The literal stories of the Word are important and sacred because they do contain inner layers of meaning.
