Prophecy in the Old and New Testaments” (“Betreffende de Profetie”) is the first. “Aesthetica” is the second. Both are carefully written in the hand of someone who knows how precious a piece of paper is when you do not know where the next scrap might come from.

In it he explores his reading of Scripture in order to understand how the Old Testament/Hebrew Bible is related to and fulfilled in the New Testament and how prophetic utterances might have contemporary meaning.

When his family returned to the Dutch Indies, an experiment of placing him in a class ahead of his age and sending him to boarding school in another part of the island group proved unsuccessful.
