LESSON FOR FEBRUARY 15.
CHRIST'S HATRED OF SHAMS.
LESSON TEXT-Luke 11:37-54.
, GOLDEN TEXT "Bo not deceived; God
.Is not mocked." Gal. 6:7.
This 1b a strango breakfast oplsodo
to "dine" means literally, to break
fast). Jesus accepted three such
Invitations from the Pharisees and
was accused of being a glutton and a
vine bibber, Matt. 11-19; Luke 7:36,
39, 44. In this Instance we are told
plainly (v. 54) -why he had been asked
to this feast. At a later time, e. g.,
during the Passion week, Jesus deliv
ered a Bpeclal discourse against the
Pharisees (Matt 23) in which he re
peated many of the things we study
Must Bo Clean.
I. False vs. True cleansing (vv. 37
44). The orthodox Jew Is very punc
tilious to avoid ceremonial unclcanll
ness. In Christ's time this ceremoni
alism was at Its highest development,
To be defiled was far worse than to be
morally unclean. This Pharisee "mar
veled" that Jesus waB not likewise
concerned with his outward acts (v.
39, se also Matt. 23:25, 2G). To have
a clean cup and platter was more Im
portant than to have a clean heart.
In a fragment of Gospel found at
Oxyrhyncus, Jesus Is reputed to have
said to a Pharisee: "Thou hast
washed in waters wherein dogs and
swine have been cast, and wiped the
outside skin which also harlots
anoint and beautify, but within they
are full of scorpions and all wicked
ness. But I have been dipped In the
waters of eternal life which come
from the throne of God." Pious plat
ters, presented In pride, must be In
Jesus pronounces three "woes,"
griefs that like an avenging nemesis
bang over men of such a character,
(1) A "woe" against those who make
a show of tithing the common garden
mint and herbs and at the same time
avoid the Weightier matters of just re
lations to their fellow men and love
to God (v. 42). We are not to neg
lect our churchly duties at all, but
these cannot be substituted for
righteousness (see Mlcha 6:8). (2)
A "woe" against those who love the
places of pre-eminence (v. 43, cf. Matt.
23:6, 7). This spirit has not departed
from the church after a lapse of cen
turies, it is unchristian,, unchrlstlike.
The great one must be the servant of
all (Matt. 23:11, 20:28, John 13:14, 15,
Phil. 2:5-8). (3) (v. 43), The third
"woe" Is directed against hypocrisy.
To touch a grave was to become un
clean, and hence they were white
washed to give men warning. Many
Christians are without beautiful to be
hold, yet within full of dead men's
bones-and all manner of uncleanliness.
The Three Woes.
II. Real vs. Sham Lives (vv. 45
54). The lawyers were the theologians,
the expounders of the Mosaic law. Ev
idently the words of Jesus produced
great conviction. The word "reproach
eat" (v. 45) means "to entreat spite
fully," and the probabilities are that
he spoke to Jesus as If to rebuke him.
Jesus at once pronounces three woes
upon him and his class, (1) A "woe"
because they laid burdens upon others
which they themselves would not even
touch with one of their fingers (Matt.
23:4). That Is, they added to the law
minute and troublesome details,
which they declared to be more im
portant than the law itself. (2)
(V. 47) A "woe" Is pronounced upon
thein for honoring the dead prophets
and at the same time rejecting and
persecuting those that were living.
To honor dead teachers, to praise the
prophets of the past, those whom wo
cannot endure whllo living, is a form
of hypocrisy which costs but little. It
Implies that had they lived in the days
of their fathers their conduct would
have been indifferent, yet they are with
the living prophets, following the ex
simple of their fathers. God foresaw
this (v. 49) and the faithful minister
of his word must expect a like .treat
ment (Mlc. 10:29, 30), (3) (v. 12) The
third ''woo" was pronounced against
these religious teachers because, pos
sessing the key to knowledge, they
neither entered themselves nor would
they allow others to enter; "ye enter
not In yourselves, neither suter ye
them that are entering in to enter."
(Matt. 23:13, Am. Itv.). These law
yers, theologians, were professedly In
terpreters of the law, that law which
was the foundation and bulwark of the
Jewish nation. In fact, however, they
had bo obscured and "explained" that
law as to leave men in darkness.
Supposed to lead men Into truth, they
wore shutting them out of the truth.
What, a, terrible indictment of many
of this present age.
We quote from" the letter of a Wis
consin business man: ''The average
- roan Is interested in the teachings of
the Bible. If the Bible cannot stand
upon its own feet, It Is foolish to bol
ster it up by any personal Ideas. We
make too many apologies for Scrip
tures and do not stand squarely by
what it teaches." Not a few who oc
cupy the position of teachers obscure
tho truth of God and they Bhut aten
out of a real knowledge of him. Jesus
thus replies to both Pharisees and the
lawyer, that character Is mot a gar
ment to wear, but It is the Inward fur
nishing of the -heart. .
