This Is one of the iost d'nmItIC,
spectacular incidents recorded in the
Bible. It is a good illustration for
Sunday school teachers on how to tell
a story by imagining what one would
naturally (10. We ought to have our
Eholars see with their imagination,
the story of this lesson as though they
were eye-wite"sses of the whole scene.
The time was about May or June A. D.

a few weeks following the last lesson,

I. Introduction. Jesus could testify
in a home as well as before the multi
' tudes. Indeed it was after having tes
tified in the home (v. 1.) that the
I crowds gathered about the doorway,
I for it was not known that he was there,
until some days after he had been in
I the house. Luke tells us that the
crowds which came, came not only
i from Galilee but Judea and even .Te
- rusalem. Jesus lid his work so well
In the home that wherever he was, the
t world wore a path to his doorway. No
I tice verse two ; when the crowd gath
I eed about, he spoke unto them "the
Word." In this VI' see a parable.
Miany a successful man, wheni he be
comes popular, forgets to) preach the
pure Gospel, the WVord of Life.
II. An impelling Need (vv. 3:4).
Thtis man1 who hid ptara lysis, 1. e., dis
abled ont one side, wuas not only de
Iplrived( of his senlsat ion but his poiwer
of motion. As to the cause of his dilli
culty, his previous character of life,
there is no word of suggestion. We see
abundant evIdence today, however, to
know that many such cases are the
results of our own debaucheries and
one would gather from the course
which Jesus pursued with this man
that perhaps his case was likewise the
result of his early sin. The teacher
might well reaul in this connection
Luke 1(3:11-19. Of course, this man
may not have beeni a prodigal son.
Nevertheless, he h1d11 as much sutfer
ing as though he hail been and as far
as he himself was concerned, he was
helpless, a picture of all sinners. IHi',
however, had frierds, very enterpris
Ing ones. And so putting imni upon the
double quilt or coverlet, which could be
rolled1 together in a. h...mdle of m .oderate
size, they carrIed hlim Into the pres
ene(e oft the mtasteor.
iii. Jesus Forgives and Defends His
Rights (vv. 5:1:2). The crowd was so
great aibiout thte house that "they could
not comei nigh unto hliml for the press."
They wvere not, however, discourage'd;
huit leaviing the crowd, they wvent up
