One of the stories told of the late

a gibe at Tennyson. The poet was one
day reading him the lyrics for "The
Princess." and when in "Tears, Idle
Tears," he came to the line, "The earli

court looked up and said, "Ah, I sup

ceived the jest a little grimly.
"What are you studying now?" asked
"We have taken up the subject of

Text of the Lenson, John 1, 19-34.
Memory Verses. 2G, 27-Golden Text.
John I, 29-Commentary Prepared
by Rev. D. M. Stearns.
[Copyright, 1905, by American Press Association.]
Let us never forget the reason why
this gospel was written, "That ye
might believe that Jesus is the Christ,
the Son of God, and that, believing, ye
might have life through His name"
(xx. 31). As we saw In last lesson, "In
Him was life," and it is always true,
"IL ililn is life," and nowhere else is
life to be found. "He that hath not
the Son of God [whatever else he may
have] hath not life" (I John v, 12). He
also is light and love, and nowhere else
are these to be found but in Him. "In
Him alone is redemption" (Acts iv, 12).
''To Him give all the prophets witness,
that through His name whosoever be
lieveth In Him shall receive remission
of sins" (Acts x, 43). The prophet who
bears testimony in this lesson is John
the Baptist, of whom Jesus said,
"Among those that are born of women
there is not a greater prophet than
John the Baptist" (Luke vii, 28). To
bear witness, testimony or record Is all
one. In verses 7. 8 and 15 of our les
son chapter the word is translated "wit
ness;" in verses 19, 32, 34, -it is "rec
ord;" in chapter iii, 32, 33, it is "testi
mony." The important point is that
the one to whom testimony is borne is
"the Son of God," "the word made
flesh," the only revealer of the Fa
The Lord had said to Moses, "I will
raise them up a prophet from among
their brethren like unto thee, and will
put my words in His mouth" (Deut.
xviii, 18). He also said in Mal. iv, 5,
"Behold, I will 'send you Elijah the
prophet before the coming of the great
and dreadful day of the Lord." The
Jews, not seeming to recognize the
prophet like unto Moses as their Mes
siah, inquire of John if' he Is the
Christ or Elijah oi- that prophet. He
does not attempt by his superior knowl
edge to teach them nor to correct their
misapprehension, but meekly insists
that he is the voice of one crying in the
wilderness, "Make straight the way of
the Lord" (Isa. ml, 3). Our Lord Jesus
testified of him that he was the one
spoken of in Mal. iii, 1, "Behold, I 'Send
My messenger before thy face, which
shall prepare thy way before thee."
See Matt. xi, 10. He was only a mes
senger, the voice of another. The mes
sage was not his own, but that of the
one who sent him. Unless it is so with
the Lord's messengers today they run
in vain and speak in vain.
When the messengers from the Phari
sees asked him for his authority to
baptize he again referred them to Him
who sent him, saying, "There standeth
one among you whom ye know not,
whose shoe's latchet I am not worthy
to unloose" (verse 27). To take off
one's- shoe meant that the place trod
den upon or the matter in hand was
not that of the person whose shoe was
removed, but of a superior having pow
er and wisdom to control, guide and
accomplish the business in hand. See
carefully Ex. 111, 5; Josh. 1, 3; v, 15;
Isa. lviii, 13. John was authorized
only to deliver his message, to do the
work appointed him and point people
to the one of whom he was the herald.
The Lord Jesus Christ is the only one
able or worthy to accomplish that
which the Father sent Him to do (Rev.
v, 1-7). The next day after the Phari
sees had sent to him, John, seeing
Jesus, cried, "Behold the Lamb of God
which taketh away the sin of the
world" (verse 29).
The great questions are: How can sin
be put away? How can sins be for
given? How can a sinner be justified
before God? For until this great bar
rier is removed there can be no fellow
ship between sinful man and a holy
God. We are living In days when from
so called orthodox pulpits the doctrine
of man's total depravity is scoffed at,
and consequently a Saviour to die in
the sinner's stead, suffering for our
sins, is to such people wholly unneces
say. But the word of God, which Is
forever settled in heaven (Ps. exix, 89),
plainly teaches man's utter sinfulness
and the necessity of a sinless man to
die in the sinner's stead (Rom. il1 and
v and all Scripture). He whom John
points out is the Lamb of God, with
out blemish and without spot, whose
precious blood alone can take away sin
(I Pet. 1, 19).
That He should be made manifes~t to
Israel, John bare witness of Him (ver'se
31), but Israel would not have Him.
They despised and rejected and killled
Him and compelled Him to say to
them, "Behold, your house Is left unto
you desolate, for I say unto you ye
shall not see Me henceforth till ye shall
say, Blessed is He that cometh in the
name of the-Lord" (Matt. xxiii, 38, 39).
That time will come-it even now draw
eth nigh-and they shall say as they see
Him coming in glory: "So this is our
God. We have waited for Him and
He will save us" (Isa. xxv, 9). Mean
while all who truly receive Him, trust
ing only in His precious blood to save
them, and thus become children of God
(verse 12), are commissioned to be His
witnesses, in the power of the Holy
Spirit, to the ends of the earth, that
His elect church, His body, may be
gathered out of all nations and .the
time of His kingdom come (Acts 1, 8;
xv, 14, 18).
No one need lack the power to be His
witness, for He who redeems us b-y
His blood is the same who baptizeth
with tihe Holy Ghost (verse 33), and
our Father In heaven, who gave Him
for us, will, with Him also, freely give
us all things (Rom. viii, 32; Luke xi,
13). Let It therefore be our whole
hearted desire to manifest His life in
these mortal bodies (11 Cor. iv, 10, 11)
end thus proclaim to others that to -us
He Is indeed the Son of God.
