This is the New Testament portion of Darby's Étude sur la Parole, published in English as Synopsis of the Books of the Bible (1857-67). Written originally in French, much of this material stems from lectures given to students and followers (referred to as "Darbyites") during his time in Lausanne, Switzerland. In addition to being a religious leader, Darby was in his own right a scholar and philologist, having translated, or participated in translating, the Bible into French (1859, 1878-80), German (1854, 1869), and English (1871-). As such he possessed a unique viewpoint of the contents of the Bible books, both in terms of their exoteric (linguistic) and esoteric (theological, spiritual, moral) substance. The author's intention is to provide a "short synopsis of the principal subjects of each book… and (as far as I am enabled) the object of the Spirit of God in each part".
