Lesson XII!.?Fourth Quarter,For
Dec. 29, 1912.
THE INTERNATIONAL SERIES.
Text of th* Lesion, ? Comprehensive
Quarterly Review?Golden Text, John
vii, 17?Commentary Prepared by
Rev. D. M. Stearns.
Lesson I ?Jesus walking ou the sea.
Mark vi. 45-50. Golden Text, Matt
tlv. 27, "Straightway Jesus spake unto
them, saying. Be of good cheer; lt ls I;
be nut afraid." He often sends or
leads Bis own Into trouble that He
may reveal Himself more fully to them.
He is always in prayer for us and al?
ways sees our toll and ls never un?
mindful of us. If we had ears to hear
we might often hear Him say the
words of tbe Golden Text.
Lesson H.?Clean and unclean. Mark
Til, 1-13. Golden Text, Rom. xiv, 17.
"For the kingdom of God la not meat
and drink, but righteousness, and
peace, and Joy In the Holy Ghost." It
ls not the outward that counts before
God If the heart ls not right. There
must be that which men can fee. but
lt must proceed from a new heart and
a clean heart, a new birth from God
by the Spirit and the word. Christ our
righteousness In the heart.
Lesson III.?Mission to the gentiles.
Mark vii. 24-30; Matt. viii. 5-13. Golden
Text. John vi. 37, "Him that cometh
to Me I will in nowise cast out."
The stories of the Roman centurion
and the Syrophoenlclan woman take
us outside of Israel and carry us back
to the queen of Sheba and all kings
who came to Solomon because of the
Lord to hear His wisdom and to bring
Him gifts, for the Lord was heard
and worshiped through Solomon.
I.ksson IV.?Wanderings in Pecapo
lis. Mark Til. 31 to viii. 10. Golden
Text. Mark vii, 37, "He hath done all
things well. He tuaketh both the deaf
to hear and the dumb to speak."'
Whenever month and ears are yielded
to nim Ile can give power to speak
and hear. He said to a prophet at one
time. "When I speak with tbee 1 will
open thy mouth" (Ezek. Ul, 27). Aa to
the hungry, them He fllleth with good
things (Luke 1. 53; vi. 21).
Lesson V.?The sign and the leaven,
Mark viii. 11-26. Golden Text, John
viii. 12 (R. V.). "Jesus spake unto
them, saying. I am the light of the
world." ? ? ? Bread for the bodv
seemed more real to them than food
for the soul. They were unbelieving
aud therefore more or less blind
Their eyes and ears did not profit
them as tliey should. False doctriiu
abor 'ed then, as now, and we musi
take tu-cd what we hear and how.
Lesson VI. ? World's temperance
Sunday. Hos. vii. Golden Text. Isa
v. ll (H. V.), "Woe unto them thai
rise up early in the morning that tba]
may follow strong drink, that tarp
late Into the night till wine inflaiiu
them:" Hosea was contemporary witl
Isaiah (Hos. 1. 1; Isa. I. 1). and boti
were faithful messengers of the Lon
against tbe sin of drunkenness. Ru
we must not forget the drunkennes
without wine (Isa. xxix. ill.
Linos, VII. ? The great questlot
Mark viii. 27 to ix, I. Golden Text
Matt. xvi. 10. "Thou art the Christ, th
Son of the living God." Simon I'etei
speaking at one time from God and a
another from the devil (verse 33 an<
Matt. xvi. 17). should make us coi
sider who lt ls thnt is vising us. Whll
eternal life is tbe free gift of God. th
cost of discipleship is the whole hean
ed renunciation of self.
LanOM VIII.?The transfigure thu
Mark ix, 1 13. Golden Text. Luke h
35 (IL V.), "A voice came out of th
cloud, saying. This is My Son. Il
chosen; hear ye Him." ? * ? Th!
scene set forth the kingdom in mini:
ture. The Son of Man glorified; th
risen aud translated saints represen
ed hy Moses aud Elijah; a rigtiteot
Israel represented by Peter, .lam*
and John, aud at the foot of the mom
the devil about to be cast ont.
Lesson IX.?Tbe lunatic itoy. Mai
ix. 14-29. Golden Text. Mark ix. '.
(R. V.), "And Jesus said unto him:
thou canst! All things are possih
to him that belleveth." The who
church is as flowerless to bind tl
devil and cast him out of the earl
as were these disciples to deal wit
that demon possessed boy. But wh?
Jesus shall come in Ills glory He w
cast bim into the pit for 1.000 yeai
Lesson X.?The child in the midi
Matt, xviii. 1-14. Golden Text, Mal
xviii. 10, "In heaven their angels <
always behold the face of my Fotb
Which is in heaven.'* To enter tl
kingdom which ls yet to be set up at
fill the whole earth one must come
empty and helpless as a babe at
trusting fully Him who calla ua. Th
we can never perish and may ev
have the guardianship of the aug*
who behold the face of God.
Lesson XL?Forgiveness, Matt, xvi
15-35. Golden Text. Eph. iv. 32 (
V.), "Be ye kind one to another, tend
Hearted, forgiving each other, even
God also in Christ forgave you." He
lng become children of Goa and he
lng in Him eternal redemption, t
forgiveness of sins by HU preclo
blood, it is our privilege to enjoy c<
tinually the love of God and the f
lowsblp of the noly Spirit.
Lesson XII.?Christmas lesson. I
Ix. 1-7. Golden Text. Isa. ix. 6. "Ut
ur a child ls boru; unto na a son
given." Encourage all to believe
that in said of Him. and that as tri
as He was horn of a virgin in Beth
ol-1 hem so truly shall He Lit on Dav!
