Lesson

nlnic Department The Moody Bible In
stitute of Chicago.)
LESSON FOR NOVEMBER 17
THE GREAT QUESTION.
LFBflON TFTT Mark :T7-:L
UOI.DEN TEXT "Thou art the Christ
he Bon of tho living; Ood." Matthew 16:
16.
The events of this lesson occur In
the summer A. D. 29 during the last of
Jesus' minUtry In Galilee Just bofora
his final departure for Jerusalem. It
marks a parting of the ways. We have
seen Jesus as Introduced by John tho
Baptist; heard him on the Mount an
he pronounces the principles of his
kingdom; watched blm as ho called)
his disciples about blm for training;
and listened to his great conflicts with
the rulers of tho people. Already vir
tually rejected by all save a few faith
ful friends he seems to test these, to
see If they are fnndamentally right on
the two Important questions. "Do Ibex
recognize me as the Messiah?" "Do
they understand that 1 must die In or-'
der to accomplish my mission?"
1. "Whom say ye?" vv. 27-29. No
tice, Jesus does not ask those outside
of his own circle for testimony. There.
Is a sense In which he is not mucht
concerned about the opinion of tho
world, but he Is tremendously con
cerned about what his followers be
lieve. His first question (v. 17) Is a
general ono and their reply Is likewlBo
a very broad one. To some of us it
suggests something of the physical ap
pearance of Jesus. No one can read
the descriptive passages about Join
the Baptist, Elijah or Jeremiah and
come to the conclusion that Jesus was
other than a man of strong physique.
not such a mun as Is usually pictured!
for us by tho artists. Rut this intro
ductory question does not satisfy the
Savior. It will not sufflco for us to
accept Jesus as "a good man a llttlo
higher than the prophets." Jesus de
mands a more personal reply, "Whota
say ye?" The strength of Christian
ity is our personal opinion of jesus
the Messiah; the proof of Christianity
Is our personal witnessing; tho test of
Christianity Is our personal experi
ence. Peter's Answer.
2. "And Peter Answered." v. 29 1. c.
to v. 83. Peter tho son of a "timiil
dove" casts all doubts, prudence and
caution to the wind, makes a bold,
positive confession, "Thou ,art the
Christ." It Is true that both Andrew
and Philip had made this same con
fession (Joha 1:40-51) much earlier In
the ministry of Jesus; but he did not,
at least publicly, accept It nor was
that sufficient at that period in bis
life. Peter twice made this assertion
previously; onco as he made his rasti
attempt to walk upen the water (Matt.
14:33), and again when many of tho
followers of Jesus began to desert
blm, (John 6:C9). But now popular
enthusiasm is dying out and already
the shadow of the cross Is resting up
on Jesus, Indeed It is only six months
away. Having elicited this response
Jesus commands his disciples to si
lence, for the time had not yet arrived
for them to proclaim It openly. Jesus,
however, began "openly" to teach his
disciples and the multitude the second
great truth mentioned at the outset,
viz., the suffering Messiah, (v. 31).
Why the Imperative "must" read
carefully John 3:14, Isa. C3:4-6, 2 Cor.
5:21, 2 Peter 2:24 und other passages
of the same import. His death and
resurrection were essential to the
whole plan of salvation (Rom. 5:9-10).
What Jesus Said.
3. "He Said Unto Them," vv. 34-9 : 1.
Jesus here sets forth, as contrasted
with the prevalent notions of the Mes
siah, threo conditions whereby men
may become his disciples: (1) Self
denial. - Jesus was on his way to
Jerusalem not to claim authority, but
to be rejected, not to assume a throne,
but to die. He tells us thut we must
affirm that we have no reliance upon
or obligation to self when It makes Its
demands, asserts Its opinions, or ex
presses Us desire. To deny Is to re
nounce. That Is exactly what self
confident Peter did on that last night
and three times ho confessed his peni
tence on the shore of the lake. To
deny self means exactly what tha
words Imply and not the usually ac
cepted idea of abstinence from food,
pleasures and luxuries. (2) Cross
bearing. Let us pause often to think
what of pain and torture and Ignominy
Is embodied In that word, "cross."
Jesus knew the suffering, the loneli
ness, the shame; yet he set bis faca
steadfastly to go to "Jerusalem" and
bore all of this "with Joy" (Heb. 12:2).
As though, if possible, to emphasize
this thought Jesu gives us a marvel
ous contrast In verses Hj-38. Again
self-denial is uppermost. Tis not self
seeking, self serving, self culture, but
self sacrifice thut is demanded.
To gain the whole material world,
an utter impossibility, at the cost of
one's soul, the loss of one's true self,
is the bargain of a fool or a mad man.
"Eternity begins where imagination
ends." "He that doeth the will of God
abldeth forever." (1 John 2:17).
Thus would Jesus emphasize by ar
gument and by illustration that to
come after him, to enter this wew
kingdom for which (ill have been look
ing, his disciples must see him as thM
worId' Messiah and follow him by
the way of the cross. Once bavlr
bartered away the soul (v. 27) wha,'
possibility Is there of Its recovery?
