says: "I was accustomed to eating

some reason, indigestion and nervous

Subject: Christ in Gethsemane.
Erooklyn. N. Y.--Sunday morning,
in the Classon Avenue Presbyterian
Church, the aszistant pastor, :.ev.
Earl E. Cleeland, preached on
"Christ in Gethsemane." Among
other things he said:
The text to which I ask your atten
tion is found in the twenty-sixth
chanter of Matthew. at the thirty
ni.th verse: "'iy Father, if it be
pcssible, let this cup pass away from
Me: nevertheless, not as I will, but
as Thou wilt," which are the words,
as Matthew has recorded them, of
the thrice repeated prayer of our
Lord in the place called Gethsemane.
You recall the account of the Last
Supper of the Lord with His disci
ples, and the dark zcene in Geth
semane which immediately followed.
Telling the- disciples to "sit ye here
while I go yonder and pray," Jesus
"took with him Peter and the two
sons of Zebedee" (James and John),
"and began to be sorrowful and sore
troubled. Then saith He unto tnem,
'My soul is exceeding sorrowful, even
unto death; abide ye here and watch
with Me.' And He went forward a
little and fell on His face and prayed,
saying: 'My Father, if it be possible
let this cup pass away from Me;
nevertheless, not as I will, but as
Thou wilt.'" The gospel according
to Luke goes on to tell us that then
"there appeared unto Him an angel
from heaven, strengthening Him, and
being in an agony He prayed more
earnestly, and His sweat became as
it were great drops of blood falling
down upon the ground."
I choose this text to-day as the
result of a conversation some ten
days ago, with one of the members of
this church, and at the outset I want
to acknowledge my indebtedness to
him for the saggestion of this ser-'
Many passages, in Scripture, are
variously interpreted and differently
understood by Christian people, and
students of the Bible especially, and
often one wi' find that the great
comrentators themselves are a:most
diamtrically opposed to each other
in the interpretations which they
make. I find that our text to-day is
ore o: those disputed passages. Sev
eral of the authorities which I have
consulted in the study of this prayer
of Christ in Gethsemane took the
view that Jesus feared and recoiled
at the thought of His approaching
death on the cross, and thus prayed
to God, His Father, trying, if it
were possible, to bend His will, and
have the end accomplished by some
other way than the cross. Only one
commentator, as I recall now, took
the view that our Lord's agonized
prayer was instigated by the over
whelnaing thought that He feared
His life would be crushed out under
neath the strain of mental suffering
He was utndergoing, before He
I reached the cross, and thus He
prayed that this cup pass away from
The majority of Christian people,
I believe, and as I find, more of the
commentators do, attribute Christ's
suffering in Gethsemane to the weak
ness of His flesh, or humanity, to
face the death that was before Him,
and they interpret our text in this
I a:n inclined, however, to cast my
lot w:ith the minority, and interpret
Chrlit's prayer as a plea to God for
strength, that His life would not be
crushed out underneath His terrible
agony before the time appointed
throu:.;h all the ages of prophecy be
fore Him-that of His atonement on
the ci oss for the sins of men. And
in treating this passage let it be un
derstc od that anything I may say
has d ubtless been said hundreds of
times before. I only wish to try to
show, from Scripture, my position.
and t herefore make no claims. I
see no necessity of exercising our
imaginations in endeavoring to show
mysterious causes for our Lord's
state of miiid in this prayer, when
the reason for-His agitation is plainly
given -in the Scriptural account itself.
But now about this prayer of our
Lord in the garden of Gethsemane.
It seems incredible almost to think
that Christian people will attribute
less courage to the Son of God than
they have seen in hundreds of exam
ples of fearlessness through all the
centuries past. Thinx of the thou
sands of people who have unflinch
ingly faced death and died a martyr's
death with scarcely a quiver. And
it would be almost irreverent in us
at such a time as this to think of the
numerous cases of criminals who
walk with unfaltering steps to the
electric chair or ascend. the gallows
with all appearance of calmness.
Some commentators, as has al
ready been said, interpret this prayer
as a revolting or halting of Christ
at the thought of the approaching
crucifixion, and the horrors which
preceded it, and attendant to it; the'
betrayal of Judas; Peter's denial, and
the desertion of His disciples and all
His followers; the humiliating trial,
and insults of the rabble, and the
liigering death on the cross. That
It was because of the horrors of all
these things that Christ here meant
to ask God If there w'as not some
other way of atoning for the sins of
men, and that Christ only yielded to
the cross to fulfill His Father's will.
Those who advocate this view would
thus mahe it out that our Lord for
got for the moment, by reason of His
suffering, the prophecies, and the
plan of God in His redemption of
the world, throughout the history of
Israel: or if Christ did not forget
that He tried to bend His Father's
will to an atonement by some other
way, and that Christ finally, after
three unsuccessful attempts to bend
God's will, yielded to the cross.
Why Christian people try to ex
plain away this pray'er in any such
a weak way is difficult to understand.
What does Christianity want with a
weak Christ who feared a martyr's
death? Our Lord was "a man of sor
rows and acquainted with grief," and
had been for three years preparing
for the cross, and had on several oc
casions before this told His disciples
of the miarner of His death, and they
could not understand at the time.
To my mind, this prayer of Jesrs
shows, on the contrary, the bravery
of our Lord, and does not show any
weakness. I am inclined to think
that Christ had no thought of the
cross during the time in which He
made this prayer, save in His remote
consciousness; but He was, just at
that moment, fearful that His mortal
body would succurib to the terrible
strain He -:'as passing through. dur:
ig this awful hour in Gethsemane.
He felt that His life would be crushed
out by this ter'rible agon:y, before H-e
reached the cross, for does not one
of the accounts tell us Christ's own
words, "My soul is exceeding sorrow
that, "being in agony. He prayed
more earnestly: and His sweat be
came as it were great drops of blood
falling down upon the ground." And
God heard and answered His prayer
by sending an angel fror heaven,
strengthening Himr.
Jesus was not. here, seeking to
bend His Father's will, but asking
God for strength to reanh the cross,
and God sent an anZel in ar.swer to
that prayer. This is tne scriptural
account of why our Lord was .n

drinking to the dregs, was the cup of
God's wrath unen the sins of men.
Christ was drinking the bitterness
of the cup in our stead. His bloody
sweat was a sprinkling, an antici

ground which had been "cursed" be
cause of man's sin. No imagination
can feel. no words can describe the

Throughout the whole Old Testa

code o' laws, educated His chosex
people to the fact that without thE
shedding of blood there was no re
mission of sins. All these forms of sacri.
ficial atonement of the sins of Israe
v-re typical of Christ, the Lamb o:

everywhere that our peace is througl

Subject: Jesus Silences the Pharisees
and Sadducees, Mark xii., 13-27
-Colden Text, Mark xii., 1
Memory Verse. 27.
1. A deputation comes to Chr'st
(v. 13). 13. "They." The Phari
sees as a whole appointed cer'a.n
ones to visit Jesus for the purpose of
inducing Him to say sonehing that
would refute His claims as the Mes
siah or that would give ground for
an accusation against Him before the
government. "Certain-Pharisees."
Matthew says "their disciples." Prob
ably young and zealous scholars.
"Herodians." The -ferodians wer'e a
political party rather than a relig
ious sect. "To catch Him." Mat
thew says "entangle Him." A meta
phor drawn from catching wild birds.
It was their purpose to ensnare Him
in His talk so they could expose His
ignorance of the Jewish law or relig
ion. or tind grounds for legal pro
ceedings against imr.
II. A question concerning our
duty as citizens (vs. 14-17). 14.
"Master, we know," etc. This was a
hypocritical compliment. They hope
by their treacherous flattery to in
duce Him to commit Himself to some
rebellious sentiment. "Is it lawful?"
etc. Caesar was a name common to
all the emporors, derived originally
from Julius Caesar, the proper foun
der of Roman imperialism in the
place of the old republic. The pres
ent emperor was Tiberius. The trib
ute was a poll tax, or levy of a dena
rius upon every person, imposed by
the Roman Government ever since
Judea had become a province. The
Jews detested this tax, but its legal
ity was supported by the Herodians.
Their question was so framed that
it seemed impossible for Him to es
cape. 15. "Knowing their hypoc
risy." Jesus, who knows the hearts
of all men, saw that they were mere
flattering spies, and their question
only a crafty device of hypocrites.
"Why tempt?" Why do you seek to
ensnare Me by a question that is
asked, not for information, but to
get Me into trouble? "Bring Me a
penny." Literally, a denarius.
16. "They brought it." By re
quiring them to bring Him the coin
He compels them to answer, tacitly,
their own question: for the Jewish
rabbis taught that, "wheresoever the
money of any king is current, there
the inhabitants acknowledge that
king for their lord." "Whose-im
age." The image was probably the
likeness of the Roman emperor, Ti
berius Caesar. "Superscription."
The name and motto on the coin.
"They said - Caesar's." Thus ac
knowledging that they were submit
ting to Caesar's authority.
17. "Render." The word render
implies tMe notion of moral duty to
ward Caesar quite as much as to
ward God. "To Caesar." Rather,
here, give back to Caesar. They ask,
Is it lawful to give? He replies, give
back. Since they accepted in the
coinage of Caesar the benefits of his
government, they were bound to give
back a recompense in tribute. So
long as the citizen accepts the benefit
of a government, he owes it alleg
iance and obedience.
III. A question concerning our
relations in the future state (vs. 18
27). 18. "Sadducees." They were
the materialists of their time. "No
resurrection." They also denied the'
immortality of the soul and the ex
istence of angels (see Acts 23:8).
"They asked H-im." Their question
was full of scorn and ridicule. They
intended to show from Moses' teach
ing that the doctrine of the resurrec
tion was absurd. 19. "Moses
wrote." In Deut. 25:5, 6. "Should
take his wife," etc. The children
were to be reckoned with in the gen
ealogy of the deceased brother.
20. "Seven brethren." This was
no doubt an imaginary case. The
Sadducees assume that the resurrec
tion includes the revival of the rela
tions now existing. 23. "In the res
urrection." Which of the seven hus
bands should have the risen wife.
24. "Do ye not--err." To err
means to wander. They do not mere
ly make a mistake, but they wander
in ignorance of the Scriptures. "Ye
know not." You err because you do
not know (1)~ the Scriptures, which
affirm this doctrine; nor (2) the
power of God, which is able to effect
the resurrection, and after the resur
rection to create a new order of
things in the new world. "Power of
God." The Bible rests the doctrine
of the resurrection on the exercise of
divine power (Acts 26:8; Rom. 1:4;
1 Cor. 6:14). 25. "When they
shall rise." That is, after they have
risen from the dead-in the future
state. "Nor are given." This has
reference to the Jewish custom' by
which the female members of the
family were given in marriage by the
father. "Are as angels." This an
swer strikes at another error of the
Sadducees-a denial of the existence
of angels.
26. "Book of Moses." The Sadu
cees had appealed to Moses as au
thority and now Jesus turns to the
same source to prove His point. "In
the bush." See Exod. 3:5, 15. "I
am," etc. Notice that the present
tense is used. He cannot be the God
of non-entities, non-existences. If
He is their God they are His people,
and, of course, must be in existence,
and not out of exiiitence. So the
whole Sadducean' doctrine broke
down. 27. "Not the God of the
dead." Our Lord here uses the word
dead in the sense of these Saddu
cees with whom He is conversing, to
signify extinct.
A Cigar.That Saved a Life.
M. Guizot, the great French his
torian, once owed his life to his cigar.
Walking in one of the Paris gardens,
he noticed that he was being followed
by a shabbily dre'ssed man. M. Guizo;
calmly sat down on a bench, upon
which his unwelcome follower seated
himself, watching him all the time
with an uncomfortably threatening
air. The historian, however, was not
troubled, but took a cigar from his
pocket and quietly lighted it. As he
did this the stranger rose and. mut
tering that he had been mistaken,
added, "That scoundrel I seek does
not smoke." Some days later the man
was arrested for a murderous assault
upon a public official against whom
he had a grudge and for whom he
had mistaken . Guizot, whose cigar
was thus a veritable life preserver.

Trrible sealy Humor in Patches AZ
Over Body-skin Cracked and
Bleeding..Cured by Cuticura.
"I was afflicted with psoriasis for thirty
five years. It was in patches all over my
body. I used three cakes .of Cuticut-a
Soap, six boxes of Ointment and two bot
tIes of Resolvent. In thirty days I was
completely eured, and 1 think permanent
ly, as it was about five years ago. The
psoriasis first made its appearance in red
spots, generally forming a circle, leaving
in the centre a spot about the size of a
silver dollar of sound flesh. In a short
time the affected circle would form a
heavy dry scale of white silvery appear-I
ance, and would gradually drop off. To
remove the entire scales by bathing or
using oil to soften them the flesh would
be perfectly raw, and a light discharge of
bloody substance would ooze out. That ,
scaly crust woukd form again in twenty
four hours. It was worse on my arms and
limbs, although it was in spots all over
my body, also on my scalp. If I let the
scales remain too long without removing 3
by bath or otherwise, the skin would .
crack and bleed. I suffered intense itch-j
ing, worse at nights after getting warmj
in bed, or Qiood warm by exercice, when
it would be almost unbearable. W. M.:
