YOUNG PUOPLIS AND ADULT TOPIC
faoitio CimractcrlutlcH of Jcsua' Ministry.
Since all the lessons of the quarter
save one arc from Luke, nnd the cen
tral and unifying theme Is Jesus
Christ, n profitable way to conduct
the review, as suggested in Peloubet's
Notes, would be to assign the follow
ing topics to the members of the
clnss to mako a brief report upon:
I. Christ's Mission to tho World.
'2. Christ's Helpers and How Ho
a. Christ's Divine Power nnd How
Hu Exercised It.
4. Christ's Methods of Teaching,
ft. Christ's Love In Its Many Mani
festation1'. (J. Christ's Courage nnd How Ho
7. Christ's Fops nnd His Dealings
5. Cluist's Pity for Sinners.
!). Cluist's Passing Through Human
10. Christ as a Missionary and nn
II. Christ's Itelntlon to the Father.
11!. Christ's pieparatlon for the
Climax of His Life.
Another way would be by summar
izing each lesson, stilting the out
standing topic and teaching of each
lesson. The following tuggestlons
Lesson 1. The birth of John the
Ilaptlst, which from trie human stand
point was impossible, was announced
to his father, Zacliiiilus. For his un
belief he was smitten with dumbness.
God expects of bis servant unques
tioned belief in what He promises.
Lesson 2. Jous was born In I'othle,.'
hem Just ns the prophet lutl fureto'ld
some 700 years before, and at tlio age
of twelve years he consciously en
tered Into the services of God's house.
Though conscious of His divine being
and mission, He lived u life of filial
Lesson 3. John the lbiptlst's. min
istry was a preparation for tlio com
ing of Christ. He fearlessly preached
repentance anil pronounced Judgment
upon the Impenitent. Though a mighty
preacher, he humbly declared that
Christ was Immeasurably greater
Lesson 4. Jesus Christ after IIIh
baptism was led by the Spirit Into
the wilderness to he tempted of the
devil. The purpose was to test the
reality of the incarnation. The re
mit was complete victory a demon
stration of His ability to save to tho
uttermost nil who trust Him.
Lesson 5. Isaiah foretold the gold
en age upon the enrth when Christ
Lesson 6. While Jesus was here Ho
healed all kinds of diseases and cast
out devils. He authenticated His
mission anil proved His power to for
give sins by miraculous deeds.
Lesson 7. Jesus taught the dis
ciples the principles which should
govern In Ills kingdom. Only those
who hnve been born from above enn
love their enemies.
Lesson 8. While In Simon's house
nt dinner, a woman who had been a
notorious sinner anointed Jesus' feet
nnd wiped them with her hair. Tho
sinner's grntitude to Jesus for for
giveness Is measured by the nppre
henslon of sins forgiven.
Lesson 9. Jesus went forth through
out every city preaching the glad tid
ings of the Kingdom of God. The fact
of salvation for sins through a cruci
fied Redeemer Is truly glad tidings.
Lesson 10. Jesus sent fortli mis
sionaries with the realization of tho
big task beforo them, nnd with power
to perform supernatural deeds to au
thenticate their mission. Those who
realize the bigness of their task will
earnestly pray that tlio Lord will
send fortli Inborers Into His harvest.
Lesson 11. Jesus' reply to the ques
tion of n certain lnwyer, "Who Is my
neighbor?" shows that tho all-Important
consideration is not "Who is my
neighbor?" but "How can I show that
I am a neighbor?"
Lesson 12. A ccrtnln rich man in
his perplexity over ills prosperity de
cided to provide larger stores and set
tle down to a life of sensuous Indul
gence. The ono who lays up treas
ures on earth and Is not rich toward
God Is a fool.
Consolation, Love, Falthr Hope, Life.
May Consolation snillo on every
pnln, nnd Love, put her linlm on every
wound that life benrs! May Faith
strengthen you all In your unavoidable
trials tint Hopo whisper through all
sorrows that this terrestrial life of
ours Is a mere shadow of the Life that
never dies. Mazzlnl,
Charity Among Yourselves.
But before all things havo a con
stant mutunl charity among yourselves,
for charity covered) a multitude of
sins. I Peter 4 :8.
