LESSON FOR JUNE 3RD
Lesson Title: "Jesus betrayed and
Lesson Text: John 1S:1-1S. Mem
orize vss. 10, 11.
Golden Text: "He was despised
nnd rejected of men." Isa. 53:3.
I. Judas A Steward of Friendship.
A great deal of responsibility rests
on a friend. He knows" the habits
and weakness of our lives. He
knows more about the Inner motives
which determine our action. He
knows Whero we arc apt to go and
why. The Becord says, that Judas
"knew the place, for.Jlesus of times re
sorted thither with his disciples." It
- was therefore easier ror Judas to lead
the sohliera to the garden and betray
A great many questions arc asked
about Judas. Was he always bad?
Did Jesus know he was bad when
he chose him. If he was false, why
was he not expelled earlier from the
ranks of tho apostles? While Judas
is one of the standing moral problems
of the Gospel history, yet he was
probably slncore nt the outset. It
was after a night of prayer that Jesus
chose, him. The disciples trusted
lilm. He must have been a man of
some capacity or he would not have
been elected treasurer. At the end
of their llfo together, when Jesus said:
"One of you shall betray me," none
of tho disciples seemed to suspect
Jndas. To thetr credit be it said,
each man thoutrht or himself.
Some say that Judas was trying to
eompjbl Christ to exercise his power.
But the deliberation of his wickedness
Is too apparent, no was not merely a
disappointed enthusiast, fio were the
other disciples nnd they did not act
the same wny. The reason for his
action Is prolmbly to be found 1u his
avarice. It Is one. of tha-inoat pow
erful motives. It breaks nil the com
mandments. It puts the weapon In
the hands of tho murderer. It makes
business a warfare "of falsehood. J It"
sells tho bodies of men and women for
gold. It Is the spirit back of the or.
ganiacd saloon. It is ,tho power
which commercializes vlrtuo beennso
this Is profitable. It is tho force which
malte'mon put up tho price of food
no matter 'how the poor man mayk
The, root of the slu of Judas was
selfishness. It is the root of all sin.
Cooks sometimes have a kettle on the
stove filled with what they call
"stock." Out of it, with the right
flavoring, they make any soup. So
any sin can be traced to this mother
tincture of wickedness, this "stock"
which we call selfishness.
Tho world has no honor for the
traitor. "On the battlefield of Sara
toga stands a splendid monument, a.
tall, hollow-shaft, -'with four niches at
Its base. In three of tho niches are
statues of Schuyler, Morgan nnd
Gates, three of the four generals who
fought In the battle aguinst Burgoyne.
Who was the fourth general. Why Is
the fourtlunlelio vacant? In the early
part of the war with Great Britain
Benedict Arnold displayed great cour
age .uid was advanced in rank, but
not so rapidly as he thought was his
due; others outstripped him, and his
disappointment and jealousy. Increas
ed by charges brought aguinst him by
those who disliked him, us well as his
greed for money, led.hlm to betray his
country. He had obtained command
of West Point, and for 0,300 pounds
reward from the British government
ho made arrangements to surrender it
to the British army. Afterwards he
joined the enemy nnd fought with
them against his countrymen. In nil
our national history the basest traitor
We can scarcely pass over this
study of the betrayal of Judas with
out commenting on the denial of
Peter was false to his Lord yet he re
pented and became a true and devoted
Christum. There is a vjist difference
between him nnd Judns. The world
hns criticised I'etjjrs faults very fair
ly, but It has always had sympathy
with him because he confessed his slu,
tried again and Conquered. Associa
tion with Jesus made out of the fickle
Peter a rock. Out of the fleiy John
It 'made n tender apostle of love. Out
of the capable Judas It made a crlin-
lunl. What was the reason? "FJre.l
softens wux, but it nnruens ciny.
"The fault Is'not In our stars,
But In ourselves, that we are under.
Bi the last analysis it remains true
that" Judns choso whnt he would do
and what lie would be. What will
Jesus Chrltjwiki!.of you? Wli.-tj
with Him? This Is the absorbing,
Yltal question before us. '
