TABEENACLE PULPIT. TALMACE PREACHES OF THE CHARACTER OF JESUS. Tbm Subject of the Sermon Being "Fairest of the iralr," From the Text: Solomon's Sons. : 16 Conception of Christ's Looks, Last Sunday's Sermon at the Tabernacle, Brooklyn. The human race has during' centu ries been improving. For awhile it deflected and degenerated, and from all I can read for ages the whole tend ency was toward barbarism. But under the ever widening and deepen ing influence of Christianity the tend ency ia no.v in the upward direction. The physical appearance of the human race is 75 per cent more, attractive than in the sixteenth, seventeenth or eighteenth centuries. From the pic tures on canvas and the faces and forms in sculpture of those who were considered the grand looking men and the attractive women of 200 years ago, I conclude the superiority of the men and women of our time. Such look ing people of the past centuries as painting and sculpture have presented as tine specimens of beauty and dig nity would be in our time considered deformity and repulsiveness complete. The fact that many men and women in antediluvian times were eight and ten feet high tended to make the hu man race obnoxious rather than win ning. Such portable mountains of human flesh did not add to the charms of the world. But in no climate and in no age did there ever appear any one who in physical attractiveness could be com . pared to him whom my text celebrates, thousands of years before he put his infantile foot on the hill back of Bethlehem. He was, and is, alto gether lovely. " The physical' appear ance of Christ is, for the most part, an artistic guess. Some writers declare him to have been a brunette or dark complexioned, and others a blonde or light complexioned. St. John, . of Damascus, writing 1,100 years ago, and so much nearer than ourselves to the time of Christ, and hence with more likelihood of accurate tradition, repre sents him with beard black and curly, eye-brows joined together, and "yel low complexion, and long fingers like his mother." An author writing 1,500 years ago represents Christ as a blonde: "His hair the color of wine and golden at the root; straight and without luster; but from the level of the ears curling and glossy, and divided down the center after the fashion of the Kazarenes. His forehead is even and smooth, his face without blemish, and enchanced by a tempered bloom; his countenance ingenuous and kincL-Xose and mouth are in no way faulty. His beard is full, of the same color as his hair, and forked in form; his eyes blue and extremely brilliant." My opinion is it was a Jewish face. His mother was a Jewess, and there is no womanhood on earth more beauti ful than Jewish womanhood. Alas! that he lived so long before the Daguerrean and photographic arts were born, or we might have known his exact features. I know that sculp ture and painting were born long be fore Christ, and they might have trans ferred from olden times to our times the forehead, the nostril, the eye, the lips of our Lord. Phidias the sculptor put down his chisel of enchantment 500 years before Christ came. Why did not some one take up that chisel; and give us the side face or full face of our Lord? Polygnotus the painter put down his pencil 00 years before Christ. Why did not some one take it up, and give us at least the eye of our Lord, the eye, that sovereign of" the face? Dionysius the literary artist who saw at Heliopolis, Egypt, the strange darkening of the heavens at the time of Christ's crucifixion near Jerusalem, and not knowing what it was, but describing it as a peculiar eclipse of the sun, and saying, "Either the Deity suffers or sympathizes with some sufferer," that Dionysius might have put his pen to the work, and drawn the portrait of our Lord. But no! the fine arts were busy perpetuat ing the form and appearance of the world's favorites only, and not the form and appearance of the peasan try, among whom Christ appeared. It was not until the fifteenth cen tury, or until more than fourteen hun dred years after Christ, that talented painters attempted by pencil to give us the idea of Christ's face. The pict ures before that time were so offensive that the council at Constantinople for bade their exhibition. But Leonardo Da Vinci, in the fifteenth century pre sented Christ's face on two canvases, yet the one was a repulsive face, and the other an effeminate face. Raphael's face of Christ is a weak face. Albert Durer's face of Christ was a savage face. Titian's face of Christ is an ex pressionless face. The mightiest artists, either with pencil or chisel, have made signal failure in attempting to give the forehead, the cheek, the eyes, the nostril, the month of our blessed Lord. But about his face 1 can tell you something positive, and beyond con troversy. I am sure it was a soulful face. The face is only thecurtain of tha souL It was impossible that a disposi tion like Christ's should not have de monstrated itself in his physiognomy. Kindness as an occasional impulse may give no illumination to the features, but kindness as the lifelong, dominant habit will produce attractiveness of countenance as certainly as the shin ing of the sun produces flowers. Chil dren are afraid of a scowling or hard visaged man. They cry out if he pro poses to take them. If he try to caress them, he evokes a slap rather than a kiss. All mothers know how hard it is to get their children to go to a man or woman of forbidding appearance. But no sooner did Christ appear in the domestic group than there was an infantile excitement, and the youngsters began to struggle to get out of ' their mother's , arms. They could not hold the children back. "Stand back with those children!" scolded some of the disciples. Per haps the little ones may have been, playing in the dirt, and their faces may not have been clean, or they may not have been well clad, or the disci ples may have thought Christ's religion was a religion chiefly for big folks. But Christ made the infantile excite ment still livelier .by his saying that he liked children better than grown people, declaring, "Except ye become as a little child ye can not enter into the 'kingdom of God." Alas! for those people who do not like children. They had better stay out of heaven, for the place is full of them. That, I think, is one reason why the vast majority of the .human race die in infancy. Christ is so fond of children that he takes them to himself before the world has time to despoil and harden them, and so they are now at the windows of the palace, and on the doorsteps, and playing on the green. Sometimes Matthew, or Mark, or Lnke tells a story of Christ, and only one tells it, but Matthew, Mark and Luke all join in hat picture of Christ girdled by children, and I know by what occurred at that time that Christ had a face full of geniality.1 ' Hot only was Christ altogether love ly in his countenance, but lovely in his habits. I know, without being told, that the Lord who made the rivers,, and lakes,- and oceans, was cleanly in his appearance. He disliked the. disease of leprosy, not only because it was distressing, but ; because it was" not clean, and his curative words were, "I will; be thou clean." He declared him self in favor of" thorough washing, and opposed to superficial washing, when he denounced the hypocrites for mak ing clean only "the outside of the plat ter," and he applauds his disciples by saying, "Now are ye clean," and giving directions to those who fasted, among other things he says, "Wash thy face;" and to a blind man whom he was doctoring, "Go wash in the pool of Siloam." And he himself actually washed the disciples' feet, I suppose not only to demonstrate his own humility, but probably their . feet needed td be washed. The fact is, the Lord was a great friend of water. I know that from the fact that most of the world is water. But when I find Christ. in such constant commendation of water, I know he was personally neat, although he mingled much among very rough populations, and took such long journeys on dusty highways. He wore his hair long, according to the custom of his land and time, but neither trouble nor old age-had thinned or injured his locks, which were never worn shaggy or unkempt- Yea, all his habits of personal appearance were lovely. Sobriety was ' also an established habit of his life. In addition to the water he drank the juice of the grape. When at a wedding party this bever age gave out, he made gallons on gal lons of grape juice, but it was as un like what the world makes in our time as health is different from disease, and as calm pulses are different from the paroxysms of delirium tremens. There was no strychnine in that beverage, or logwood, or nux vomica. The tip plers and the sots who now quote the wine-making in Cana of Galilee as an excuse for the fiery and damning bev erages of the nineteenth century for get that the wine at the New Testa ment wedding had two characteristics, the one that the Lord made it, and the other that it was made out of water. Buy all you can of that kind and drink it at least three times a day, and send a barrel of it around to my cel lar. You can not make me believe that the blessed Christ who went up and down healing the sick, would create for man that style of drink which is the cause of disease more than all other causes combined; or that he who calmed the maniacs into their right mind, would create that style of drink which does more than anything else to fill insane asylums; or that he who was so helpful to the poor, would make a style of drink that crowds the earth with pauperism; or that he who came to save the nations from sin, would create a liquor that is the source of most of the crime that now stuffs the penitentiaries. A lovely sobriety was written all over his face, from the hair-line of the forehead to the bottom of the bearded chin. Domesticity was also his habit. Though too poor to have a home of his own, he went out to spend the night at Bethany, two or three miles walk from Jerusalem, and over a rough and hilly road that made it equal to six or seven .ordinary miles, every morning and night going to and fro. ' I would rather walk from here to Central park, or walk from5 Edinburgh to Arthur's Seat, or in London clear around Hyde Park, than to walk that road that Christ walked twice a day from Jeru salem to Bethany. , But he liked the quietude of home life, and he was lovely in his domesticity. ' How he enjoyed handing over the resurrected boy to his mother, and the resurrected girl to her father, and re constructing homesteads which disease or death was breaking up. As the song.
