Rosenbach 384. From 1831 to 1847, Bush was Professor of Hebrew and Oriental Literature at New York University. He also began several works, including the Life of Mohammed (1830), A Grammar of the Hebrew Language (1835), an extensive series of commentaries on books of the Old Testament, and the highly controversial Anastasis: or, the doctrine of the resurrection of the Body, rationally and scripturally considered (1844). Mr. Bush was also a committed advocate for the abolishment of slavery. In 1845 Bush converted to the General Church of the New Jerusalem. He quickly became a prominent spokesman of the church, and helped the spread of the church’s magazine. Bush served as editor for the New Church Review and the spiritualist magazine, The Hierophant, and he authored and helped disseminate a large number of Swedenborgian tracts, including the widely read Statement of reasons for believing the doctrines and disclosures of Emanuel Swedenborg (1846) and Mesmer and Swedenborg (1847). Bush continued his promotional work for the New Church until his death, following a protracted and debilitating illness, in 1859. Ironically, Bush is a distant relative of his namesakes.
