From Chapter 21 of the Decline & Fall

The humble condition and sufferings of Jesus have always been a stumbling-block to the Jews.

"Deus . . . contrariis coloribus Messiam depinxerat; futurus erat Rex, Judex, Pastor," etc.

See Limborch et Orobio Amica Collat. p. 8, 19, 53-76, 192-234. But this objection has obliged the believing Christians to lift up their eyes to a spiritual and everlasting kingdom.
