of tho Pharisee. The writer,
makes a close connection be-
the final admonition about
to hear" in chapter 14 and-
1 of this lesson, Jesus had
the crowd though he had left
(the door open to himself, for he was
seeking those who wore prepared to
share witti him In his enterprises of
building and of conflict, If they could
bear his teaching. This Is responded
to by those outcast ones, tho publicans
and the sinners. They had no
righteousness of their own, no spirit
ual hope centered In themselves and
they turned eagerly to one who was
unqualifiedly honest with them though

True and False Shepherds. I
II. Tho Lost Sheep, vv. 4-7. The
shepherd is God the son (John 10:11, '
12; Luke 19:10). He Is the "Truo
Shepherd," the Pharisees were false ,
ones. This adds point to the parable; '
see the Old Testament rebukes for the
same, Ez. 34:7-10; Zech. 11:16-17; Jer.
50:6. Tho lost sheep belongs to the
fold, hut was out of place. These
outcast ones were still Israelites and ,
the backsliding Christian still belongs
to the fold. A sinner Is a lost sheep.
He Is away from the care, the protec
tion, the guidance of the shepherd and
is torn, bleeding, and "ready to die." (
One such lost one will call forth tho
shepherd's utmost endeavor to save it,
far beyond the care lavished upon
the nlnety-and-nlne already safe in the
fold. This means labor, toll, and pri
vation, and he keens ui the search
"until he finds it." This does not Dan Hess and family were guests of

is astray he will find. Once found It
rests upon his shoulders, is kept by
his power, I Pet. 1:5. Over It he and
the father rejoice, vv. 23, 24, S2.
There Is here tho evidence of the In
terest in the flock which is incom
plete and the Interest of the owner
as well. The 'safety of tho lost one
depended upon the shepherd's Interest.
Work of Holy 8plrlt.
III. The Lost Coin, vv. 8-10. These
three parables are a unit in the fact
that they reveal the attitude of God
toward men who are in their deepest
need. Each Is the story of something
being lost and the fact that it is
found. Tho first is a revelation of the
son, the last of the father, while this
central one sets forth the work of
the holy spirit through the church.
Rev. 22:17; Eph. 6:25. One of ten
coins in this woman's marriage neck
lace is lost,-hence the incompleteness.
The spirit will not rest until it is
found, nor should tho church. The
woman takes her lamp the word of
God, Ps. 119:105; Phil. 2:15, 1G and
sweeps the house. It has tfeen sug
gested that sweeping usually stirs up
a dust and that some are likely to
object. So tho world will object when J
tho church of tho living God begins to
stir up a dust and they are annoyed
at any eager search for the lost ones, J
Acts 17:6. The woman is a sugges
tion to us In that she sought ''dili
gently until the lost coin was found.
Then sho, too, calls in her neighbors
that they may rejolco with her. Ikies .

And do wo know anything about the

tho home the woman watches and I

the owner, and in the interest of tho
IV. Summary. The chief valuo of
these two pictures is in their revela
tion of the work and Interest of the
son of tho spirit. The crowding mul
titude of publcans and sinners, held
in contempt by tho Pharisees, Jesus
viewed as lost ones. Appalling as
this suggestion Is, yet the sheep be
longed to the shepherd and the coin
was the property of tho woman. This
suggests tho dignity and value of men
and the tragedy of their condition.
Knowing all this and. understanding
the full significance of that tragedy,
the son as the shepherd has under
taken to seek and to save tho lost
