LESSON FOR OCTOBER 20.
MISSION TO THE GENTILES.
LESSON TRXT-Mark TiM-K) and Mat
OOI.UKN TKXT-"Hlni that Cometh to
me I will in no wise cast out." John
Chronologically the Incident of the
centurions servent precedes that o(
tho Syrophenlclan woman, though wo
wilt look at them In the order sug
gested. The one Incident occurs near
the border of Tjre and Sldon, prob
ably about May or June, A. D 29, and
tho other In Capernaum during the
summer of A D. iS. Doth aro Inci
dents In tho life of Jesus that havu
to do with his ministry as the Hebrew
Messiah to those who were outside ot
tho palo of Judaism
At the beginning of Mark's record
(v. 24) we haTe a wonderful sugges
tion as to tho strain of Jesus, ministry
and tho accompanying lesson that
truo righteousness cannot be hid. It
speaks for Itself,
Thero arc four uses of tho word
"answered" In Matthew's record of
this incident (Matt 15.21 2S) that aro
suggestive. Let us first, however, get
tho setting. This woman was a Greek
a Gentile; by race she was a Sy
rophenlclan, that is' a Canaanltu.
Thus sho was a descendant of that
raco whom God, by the hand of Joth
ua, had driven out to maku room for
tho Hebrew nation, and as such Is
under the ban of God. See Eph. 2-12.
Yet this woman reaches Jesus, her
trouble being that her daughter Is
l'otteeesed by an unclean spirit. At
her approach she takos a lowly place
nt Jesus' feet and requests that he
held tho child She calls him the
"Soi of Darld." and "Ho answered
her not n word" Matt. 15:23. She
had no claim upon him as the Mes
siah. This was the wrong footing, for
she wis not a child of the kingdom.
It was her need that drove her to
him. How she had heard of him is
suggested in Mark 3.S and 7:24, cf.
Horn. 10:17. There are some ques
tion that silence will not answer A
wrong conclusion will be reached, as
in this case tho disciples camp to a
wrong conclusion and desired to
"send her away." Contrast Jesus'
patlcnco with tho disciples' Impa
tience, "she crleth after us" and em
pbaslzo the danger of external Judg
ment Thero are many great moral
Issues today that are demanding an
other answer than that of silence
The Answer of Law.
Jesus then rr.nde a Fccond answer,
the answer of Uw, Matthew 15-24, in
which ho accepts her estimate of him
as the Jewish MeBsIah. His work
was primarily to tne Jews (John 1:11
12), Hut her need was great, and
identifying herself with the need of
tho child she "wo-shlpped" Jesus
He is more than the Messiah, ho is a
Saviour Not yet, however, is Jcbus
ready to grant her request. His third
answer (v 25), the answr of mercy,
Is literally that first til's children
must bo fed, and Bhe replied, "Yea,
Lord; even the dogs under tho tabic
eat of tho children's crumbs " Kor
this saying, viz , that she did not pro
test against tho words ho had spoken,
but accepted tho proper estlm-ito of
him an being the Jewish Messlan and
herself as outsldo of thnt covenant,
ho made a fourth answer, the answer
to faith. Ho answered: ' O, woman,
great la thy faith," v. 2S, and grants
her carlo blanc (v. 28), "bo It unto
thee oven as thou wilt" As outcasts,
we must cast oursclvcB "at his feet."
Let us now look at the account ot
the centurion's Bervant. Onco moro
Jesus is nppeulcd to by one who Is
outsldo the Hebrew covenant and on
behalf of a servant In tho other In
cident thero was the Interruption of
a Bcemlng refusal and hero the Inter
ruption of an Instantaneous! granting
of tho request. Again wo need to
read tho. parallel accounts given by
tho other evangelists. Verse ten of
this soctlon is tho key to this whole
Etory. What are some of tho marks
of a "great faith?" First, It Is
tested. Tho servant was "dear unto
tho conturlon." Luke 7:2. Second, it
is progressive "when he heard of
Jesus," Luke 7-3 Third, it will be
recognized by others, Luko 7:4.
The Great Faith.
The protest in v. 9, aud tho remark
ablo commendation of Jesus thereon,
Is a solemn warning 'to all who are In
covenant relations with God aud his
Son whom ho has sent Jesua had thero
n glimpse ot thnt great comlne day
when all Gentiles would bo gathered
unto him, v. 11 (cf. Her. 7:9). Tho
centurion reccUed for his faith com
mendation, and healing for his servant
as well, v. 13.
Why should there be such a differ
ence In the treatment of these two
when we read ot each that they had
great faith T Matthew 15:28 and 8:10.
Tho difference can be explained only
by tho fact that the Master know all
tho facts about both and he adopted
such tactics for each as were best
suited to tho case. This Imprecses
us with the truth that personal work
cannot be tione by nny rule of thumb;
Indeed, the Master seems seldom to
have used tho same method twice. Is
thero then no common factor In these
two Incidents? The yielding of faith
always gains that which Is sought
