Our last lesson In the hlstory of the
apostollc perlod, studied February Sth,
pertalned to the found Ing of the church
at Corinth. After two lcasons in tho
cplBtles-one on Chrlstlan. Selt-Control
and ono on Chrlstlan Lovo?we resiimo
tho narrative. Tlie prosecutlon of laul
by tho Jows when Calia was deputy
(verses 12 to IT) is tho only lmportant
event recorded during the ivtay at Co?
rinth, After an extended ralnlstry
there, passed over in sllonce by the sac
rcd penman, the apoBtle, accompanied
by Priscilla and AnuKla, took shtp and,
crosslng over to Syrlu, came to liphesus,
tlie sceno of our prqscht lesson. Ihls
clty wns ono of the most lmportant In
Asla. It was n'oted In that day as. tho
pluco whero tlio goddess Dlana waa
wcrshlpped with moat Imposlng cere?
mony and much poptilnr devotlon, Our
? ics.vms for thls month nll pertain to
ovents that trnnsplred thoro.
I.I/JQLTBNT PHEACHEH-fVerses 24
nnd 20). Many of varlous talents wero
called Into tho servlco of the early
church. Then. as now, God waa able
to use the fceblest Instrutncnts for tho
nccompllshment of HIr purposes (1 Cor.
iixx.vljl.) for tho confuslon of tlie mlghty.
A band of flsliermen wero the apostlcs.
But a fow men. glftcd by naturc and
well ycrsed in tho learning of the tlme,
wcrc also engaged. Such was Paul,
brought up under an . omlnent rnbbl
(Acts xxll.tt) and ondowed above many
wltli rarc, accompllshments. The intro?
duction of nnothcr of slmllar abllity,
both native nnd aequlred, In the porson
of Apollos, was an cvont of far reachlng
importance. Thls man was a Jow, a
native of Ale.andria, ln Rgypt, thon
tlie soat of the most famous unlversity
In tho world, There he had aequlred
some knowledgo of Jesus, whlch ho
p reach cx] with great acceptnblllty, for
hc wo-s eloquont. In this respect ho
Burpassed the great apostlo to tho Gcn
tlles (3 Cor., xi: li). who was slow of
speecli. But Apollea had a llmlted
view of airlstlanity, thnt whlch John
the Baptlst had taught (Mat.t., 111:11).
20), It was fortunato that Apollos
came to Ephesus, fortunate for hlm and
for tho cause of Christ. IIo arrlved
whlle Paul wns absent on hls misslon
nry tour, so that thero was nccd of hls
pecullar servloe. But, what was most
opportune, was tho presence ot Priscil?
la and Aqulla, tho formor belng tlie
wlfo of the latter. Aqulla scems to
have boen a man of somo learning, for
ho had translatcd tho Old Tcstamont
lnto Grcok. Flcelng from Rome in obo
dlenco tn tlie ordor of Claudlus, cxpell
Ing all Jows from tho Imperlal Clty, he
found hls way to Corinth ln tlmo to
mnko tho acqualntanco of Paul, undor
whoso prencblng ho bocamo a convert
to Chrlstlanlty. Hls knowledgo ot tho
Jowlsh Scrlptures sorved a good pur?
poso, onabllng hlm to form a clear Idea
of tlio gospol. Thus wero theso twi
prepared to bo tho lnstructors of tho
eloquont preachor, who only ncoded moro
light to bocomo hlghly usoful. Hus
? band and wlfe, nay, wlfo and hushatid,
the womnnly nnd tho nianly combined,
exhlblted tho now way more' perfectly.
LAllOF.Il MINTSTRY (Verses 27 and 2S.)
Thls labor of lo/e on tho part of Prls
ollla and Aqulla was not In valn. There
was a point of contact bctweon tho
tenchers and thelr brllllant ptipll thut
rendcrod tlio work easy and tho result
certaln. Tholr Jowlsh trainlng lald n
basla and provldod condltlons in overy
way faiforabje. And so lt came to ipnss
'that Apollos wont forth a woll furnlshed
misalonary, hearing lctters of coinmen
datlon from his formor instructors. IIo
left the theologloal semlnary of two pro
fessors, a man and hls wlfo, nnd onterod
lnto Achaln, or Oreeco, thus prococdlng
to tho vory people" among whom Paul
and Acquila had beon. Rccolvcd by the
dlsclples thero, ho waa vory holpf'ul to
them, and hls fiddrQBses to hls country
men wero con't'lnclng and prof'.table. (1
Cor., IHsC) Hls ono great thomo wns
"Jesus tlie Mosslah." Out of the Scrlp?
tures he showed that Josus mot thovex
peotatlons of tho Jowlsh natlon, that ho
must, therefore, bo thelr klng, ft mode
of argument adoptod through all tlie
? postollo iperiod. (Acts., lx;2S.)
URGI3NT QUF.8T10N, (Versos 1 nnd
S ) After Apollos doparted, Paul roturned
*o Bpliesus, hav|ng complotod hls tour
through tlio northern provlnces, On hls
nrrlval ho found dlsclplos. Some of those
mny luwo hcon conwrtcd at Pentecost,
(Acts,'11:5, 41), and, having como home,
crganlssed a socloty. lt is proba-blo that
the groatest numhor had been brought
ln through tho proachlng of Apollos, aa
tlio eoquel wlll indlcato. I.ikc a fulth
fw\ nnd cereful superlntondont of the
?hurch, iinxious thnt thero should bo
tound experlnnco as well Us practlco, tlio
ipostle Instltuted an examlnatlon Into t)ie
iplrltual cqndltlon. li? deij|rod to know
rhether tho?6 peoplo wlio called them
jttSi'ves Chriatians woro prouerly and truly
so, Ho made no Inquiry concernlng any
confesslon of falth. That wouid come
later. Hls ono questlon was whether
they had received the Holy Ghost. Thls
was part of that large promise. whlch.
nccordlng to Peter, (Acts. 11:38, 30), was
for all under the new dlapensatlon. If
lt had been reallzed by the Epheslan con
vorts then the fulness of the Gospel had
not yot beon attalnc-d. (Rom., x>r:29.)
lNlTIAfc UAPTISM. (Verse 3.) The an?
swer to Pnul's questlon was aV-evelatlon.
Tho dlaclplcs had not heard of the Holy
Ghost?they woro In tho same condltlon
ns wero tho Samarltans, (Acts. vlll:16).
nt the comlng of Peter and John, That
was a vory remarkablc statement, show
lng that tho preachlng h/ul been ,vory
defect'ee In that it omittcd tho most es-'
sentlal truth of Chrlstlanity: Paul. was,
evldently surprlsed and asked at'out thelr
baptlsm! Hls questlon indlcates that by
tlie ordlnanco men were then inducted to
tlie church. If thore wns no mention
, o' the Holy Ghost nt the time. what was
tlio nature of tholr baptlsm? Thelr answer
lot out tho whole secret. They had re?
ceived tho baptlsm of John, ndminlstered
on o-Kidltlon of ropentanco, and a detorml
nat&n to lead a new llfo. They were
prccisely where Apollos was beforo he
wns Instructed hy Prlscllla and Aqulla.
They had taken only the Inltlal step. The
Chrlstlan profession nnd Ilfe . lny
1 on bovond. It Is not enough to
ronounco one's slns, to resolve upon
better llvlng commondnble as that
EXPECTED CHRJST?(Verse 4.)^ Tho
wav was thus prepared for Paul's In
striictlon. Here were honest men and
women who heeded the cail of an elo
q'ueiit mnn, and had made a good bo
glnning by turnlng from thelr slns. Such
peoplo wlll not bo lndlfforent when told
that thore is something boyond to whlch
they may attain. It. was nn adrolt les?
son that Paul gave that company of no
vltiates. Ho ndmitted the full value of
John's baptlsm. It wouid have been a
serlous mistake to cast tho sllghtost
doubt upon tho work of that emlnent
ovangelist (Matt., xl;0), whose reputa
tlon had gone far and wlde whorever
the dlspersed of Israol mlght bo found.
By that admisslon ho won the favor of
the dlsolples. But he added that even
John had requlred falth ln one who was
to como after him. (Matt., 111:11.) Ho
did not merely seek to turn men from
sln, lmportant os that was, but also to
turn them to Chrlst, tho expected Sa
viour. John wns moro than a preacher
of righteousness?he was the fororunner,
tho herald of the Messinh. (John, 1:80.)
Thoso pooplo, thorefore, had not mot all
tho Intentlon of John the Bnptist.
SPIRITUATj BAPTISM-(Verses 5 and
6.) Tlio docllity of tlio converts ap
pearcd at onco?they accepted tho now
message and submlttod to anothor bap?
tlsm in tho namo of tho T-,ord Josus.
This corotnony was In hnrmony with
Chrlst's commission (Matt,, xxvlli:19),
ond with Poter's practlce (Acts, x:48).
It attosted tho value of wator baptlsm
ln tho early church as an Institutlon to
bo carrlod forwnrd, if not perpotuated.
Aftor the ordlnnnco Paul lald his hands
on tho dlsciples, who received tlie Holy
Ghost and propheslod and spake with
tongucfl. Tho laylng on of hands was
a very anciont form (Ac,ts vl:B), usually
omploved ln ordlnatlon. For thls rpason
it has boen thought that on thls occa
alon Pnul orgnnlzed tho cliuroh at Ephe
sus, and by tiils mod'o sot apart tno ol
ders, twelvo In number. (Vorse 7.)
Others thlnk tids was 'a speclal endue
ment, grnntod only for a tlme. wlthout
ropnrd to otnolal posltlon, but deslgned
to quolify for tho duties that must arlso
In tlio Infant church. And somo hold
that splrltmil baptlsm was a prlvllego
to bo enjoyed perpetually by all Chrlst
CI^OSING THOUGHTS?Wo may learn
from thls pnasnge-1. That oloquonco
ennnot nlwnys bo trustod. A man pos
sosfllng it may lead one lnto orror as
Apollos dld. After hlm there Is needed
a teachor Uke Paul. 2. That a man of
a splemild abllity, winnlng favor with
the populnco, may bo helped by one loss
proinlnont, as Apollos was hy Prlscllla
and Aqulla. 8. That tho apostollo church
wns vory simple and flexible, oaslly
ndapted to qulck nnd nggressivo work.
Two persons, a man nnd his wlfe, glve
instructlon to anothor and Bond hlm
fortn, to proach without wultlng for
othor sanctlon than hls roeognlsscd gifts
and gracos. 4. Thut Chrlstlan workers
havo mlsslons sultod to tholr abllltles.
Paul foljowed Apollos at Ephc.ua nnd
Apollos followod Paul at Corinth. (1
Cor., 111:6.) Each servod the church. 6.
Thnt Chrlstlanity is more than rjght
oousness?lt ls a powor through the Holy
Ghost. lt ls moro than repontunce from
sln?lt Is falth In Josus Chrlst. 6. That
the largor, fuller llfo comes through in?
structlon, No one *!ses above what he
knows,, Aqulla and Paul, both teachers,
are needed; evorywliere.
