The Prosperous Man and His Son. The International Sunday School Les son for March 16 is. 'The Test of Abraham s Faith." Gen. 22: 1-19. (BY WILLIAM T. ELLIS.) "I tell you, the rich man's son does not have a fair chance in the world today:" cries J. Campbell White. The paradox seems -startling, at first, and then it opens into a vista of a great truth. The rich man's son has too much done for him; he does not know how to do without anything he desires. The element of sacrifice is missing from his life. Nobody who has- failed to learn self-denial, and real service, has ever been worth his salt. We have a real .problem In this western world today In the over-Indulged, self-centered, irresponsible youths In hofe vocabulary there are. no such words as sacrifice and subordination. The son question, as a living Is sue, is brought up afresh by this Sun day school lesson upon Abraham's offering up of Isaac, the heir of the promises, the hone of the father, and his pride and joy as well. This back ground we must get; the father's pride and happiness In his son. As runs the Arabic saying: "Is there any blessing better than a son? Man's prime desire; by whom his name and he Shall live beyond himself." Kvery father dreams, dreams for his boy. A friend once bore to a father the news of the death of his infant son, but a few days old. The father was heart-broken, but his only comment was, "And I had made such plans for him!" Abraham had lived hi later life In thoughts of Isaac's future. Why, the very covenant of Jehovah depended for its fulfillment upon Isaac's life. He was the link between the old patriarch and those descendants who. according to prom ise, were to be as numerous as the stars. And now, here was Jehovah Himself bidding Abraham offer up Isaac as a sacrifice! The Philosophy of the Altar. We shudder at the thought of hu man sacrifice. Were it not a boot less rehearsal of history, we could recount how the Canaanites and the Phoenicians of old. and the Hindus and South Sea Islanders of a recent day, ' indulged in this terrible re ligious rite; while Greek mythology and modem Japanese history con tain the same teaching. Of more immediate concern is the altar idea in our own life. For our concern is always with the present-day ap plication of truth. Are parents now adays offering sons and daughters on the altars of religion and patriotism? Do mothers and fathers still solemnly dedicate their unborn or infant chil dren to the highest and holiest mis sions? The question is timely, inasmuch as we know that myriads of young lives are devoted by parents to fashion and to luxury and to money-getting. We have cause to wonder whether moth ers, as of old, still give their chil dren to God and country. That idea is commonly esteemed old-fashioned. One clear reason, why there is a lack of students for the gospel ministry is that parents are not setting apart their sons for this calling. They shrink from the sacrince involved in the idea of the altar. They want their children to be prosperous and comfor table first of all. All the while, the truth lies near to the surface that it is the element of sacrifice which makes life great. Scan the men you know who have come to power in the church and nation, and they will be found to be those who have not spared themselves. The road to leadership in things spiritual runs over the amount of self-sacrifice. Great characters grow in the shadow of some Calvary. The fairest flowers I found in or near Jerusalem were in the Gar den of Gethsemane on the slope of Olivet, tenderly cherished by a Fran ciscan monk. Life comes to beauty only as it is rooted deep in the soil of surrender and sacrifice. A parent does most for his child when he introduces him to the idea that his life nas been laid on an altar. The Test That Became a Testimony. The iron that entered Abraham's soul was Jehovah's demand that he should offer up his only son. Isaac, as a sacri fice. At the outset, let it be said that, clearly. God asked for Isaac because He wanted Abraham. He cared not for the fact of the actual sacrifice, but for the spirit of devotion. It was merely proof of His own sovereignty that He sought. God, who is a jealous God. wanted to make clear that He was God over Abraham's life. His law runs for ever, "Thou shalt have no other God be fore me." "He will not be king at all unless he can be king in all." Because He is God, Jehovah asks complete sub mission on the part of all who accept Him as Lord. The anguished father made all prep arations. Parents who have parted from their children at duty's call know Abraham's pangs. He loved his son more than he loved his own life: but he loved God most of all. "Though He slay me. yet will T trust Him." cried his bleeding spirit. To Mount Moriah, the rock over which the temple of Solomon was later built (the Moslems to this day show the legendary rock of sacri fice to visitors to the Mosque of Omar), father and son repaired,1 three rlays Journey from Hebron, their home. Kven the wood was prepared for the sacrificial fire, and the deadly knife upraised, when the angel of the Lord interposed. The sacrifice has been made in spirit, and the flowing of blood counted for naught. God had ready a ram in the thicket for the emergency. That test became Abraham's testi mony. All through the religious his tory of the three great faiths, Judaism. Christianity, and Islam, the testimony of Abraham's faith has heartened and j inspired believers. The eleventh chap- j ter of Hebrews rings with it. "Abra-! ham believed God. and it was counted i to him for righteousness." On ML Moriah, his mount of sacrifice, the fa- j ther of those filll of faith reached the apex of his life; even as. Christ, his greatest Son, proved his sovereignty; and , saviourhood on the neighboring j mount of sacrifice, called Calvary. I A dear old woman once said to j me. "I used to wonder when it was ihit Ahraham saw Christ's day and was glad. One morning while I was washing the breakfast dishes. 1 be thought me of it. It was when he offered up Isaac. That act of sacri fice made him understand the Christ spirit. He then became closest to God, who offered up His only Son." A Heritage for a Sou. Britain may set aside great sums of money for Explorer Scott's fam ily, but what heritage to the hero's boy can equal the memory of his father's great name? If some of us were more careful to bequeath the knowledge of heroic and holy lives to our sons, it would matter little how much money we leave for them. Abraham gave to Isaac an inheritance of faith. He attested his belief in the supreme reality of spiritual values. Abraham is the world's most famous ancestor, because he was such a man of faith that God could use him for the making of a nation. His life mes sage, handed down to Isaac and all the generations since, was, "Have faith in God." The famous author. Ian Maclaren (John Watson), analyzes the case of Abraham in a way that applies it to every reader: "To emerge from the physical and enter into the spiritual sphere is an immense advance and a tremendous risk. Any one who shifts the center of his life from the world which is seen to the world which is unseen deserves to be called a believer. Abraham was the first man in his tory who dared to make his venture and to cast himself on God. He dis covered the new world of the Soul, and is to this day the father of the faithful." Upon the white sea sand ' There sat a pilgrim band. Telling the losses which their lives had known. While evening waned away From breezy cliff and bay. And the strong tides went out with weary moan. One spake with quivering lip Of a fair freighted ship, With all his household, to the deep gone down. But one had wilder woe. For a fair face long ago Lost in the darker depths of a great town. Some talked of vanished gold. Some of proud honors told. Some spake of friends that were their trust no more; And one of a green grave, Beside a foreign wave. That made him sit so lonely on the shore. But when their tales were done, There spake among them one, A stranger, seeming from all sor row free., "Sad losses have ye met. But mine is heavier yet. For a believing heart hath gone from me." "Alas!" these pilgrims said, "For the living and the dead. For fortune's cruelty, for love's sure cross, . . For the wreck of land and sea. But however it came to thee Thine, stranger, is life's last and heaviest loss." Frances Brown. The Day That Serves Man. Terse Comments for March 16, "How May Everv Sabbath Be 'The Lord's Day?'" Jer. 17:21-27. (BY WILLIAM T. ELLIS.) Is there anywhere on the page of human record a more idyllic pic ture than that of the old fashioned American Sabbath the rest day, the worship day, the home day? Then the workaday garb was doffed and "Sunday clothes" donned. All the workaday machinery of life was stilled and the busy vocations of the week were laid aside, and a new state of mind was put on. Hurry gave way to leisure, and work to rest. A hush that seemed physical settled upon na ture. People's thoughts tended to ward loftier themes, even as their feet turned toward the houses of worship. A spacious day was the old fashioned Sunday, with room for friendship and family relationships. Somehow, the tender human ties seemed more sacred on that day; the soft breezes of the other world breathed upon and re freshed them. There was time for the unhurried reading of the Bible and books of devotion and the reli gious newspaper. Then the mind looked out over the kingdom's work, as well as upward to the kingdom's home. Sometimes the day seemed too religious for the children; but even the student of psychology will agree that to put into children a sense of other-worldliness. or sacred and solemn things, of sanctities in the presence of which one must remove one's shoes, like Moses at the burning bush, was no small contribution to the formation of strong character. The children of the old fashioned Sabbath-keeping homes grew up with convictions; and in them was the stviff that makes manhood and womanhood. All the world, with its commingled in terests of state and commerce and private life, owes an unpayable debt to the American Christian Sabbath. "O day of rest and gladness, O day of joy and light, O balm of care and sadness. Most beautiful, most bright: On thee the high and lowly. Through ages joined in tune. Sing Holy, Holy, Holy, To the great God Triune. On thee, at the creation. The light first had its birth; j. On thee, for our salvation, Christ rose from depths of earth; On thee our Lord, victorious. The Spirit sent from heaven ; And thus on thee, most glorious, A triple light was given." Sunday will not be the day of the Lord unless He is permitted to be Lord of the day. As rests are an essential part of music, so the quiet of the Sabbath is as necessary to a symmetrical life as the activity of the other six days. I wonder if anybody ever had to go to a sanatorium for- nervous prostration who truly kept the Lord's day? The supreme law of the Sabbath is that laid down by the King ihmself "The Sabbath was made for man." Like all this universe, it was designed by a beneficent creator to minister to the highest requirements of human ity. As truly as a man needs food and sleep and shelter he also needs spirit ual plenishing. For man is more than an animal: he is a spiritual be ing. They who would pervert the law that "The Sabbath was made for man." to mean that it was made only for the physical man, for his diver-1 sion and recreation, are thinking on such a low plane that they dishonor man as truly as they dishonor God. Man has higher needs than those of the body. The worst form of starva tion is to have plenty of food for the senses, but none for the soul. Well does the old saying put it: "We have bodies; we are souls." The crowning day of the week was designed for the highest uses. It was made primarily for man's spiritual nature, to help mm to be the best that he may be come. The Sabbath is always mis spent when it does not leave the spirit stronger, sweeter, serener and surer of its eternal destiny. "A Sabbath well spent Brings a week of content." ' " A serious mistake often made is to substitute a lot of little man-made regulations for the Lord's large law concerning the Sabbath. That was what the Pharisees did. Thev hedged this day of rest and gladness and lib erty about with so many petty pro scriptions that the Saviour himself was put in the light of a Sabbath-breaker. Three functions are indicated in Scrip ture for the Lord's Day First, it is a memorial celebration: it marks the Creator's rest and the Saviour's resur rection. Most properly, this aspect of the day is observed by worship in God's house. Secondly, the Sabbath is a rest day, enjoined by divine command This involves a day which, in employ ment and in recreation shall be differ ent from all other days. And, thirdly. the sabbath is a day of rejoicing, which it will be if It thud recognizes the claims of God and the needs of man. Like a signboard at a cross-roads the Sabbath points two days backward to Ood s dealings with man ami God's pro vision for him: and forward to the land of endless Sabbaths of which Watts and the saintly Bernard sing: "There is a land of pure delight. Where saints immortal reign; Infinite day excludes the night. And pleasures banish pain. There everlasting spring abides. And never-withering flowers: Death, like a narrow sea, divides This heavenly land from ours." "Jerusalem the golden. With milk and honey blest! Beneath thy contemplation Sink heart and voice opprest. I know not, O I know not. What joys await us there; . What radiancy of glory. What bliss beyond compare. "They stand, those halls of Zion, All jubilant with song. And bright with many an angel. And all the martyr throng. The Prince is ever in them. The daylight is serene; The pastures of the blessed Are decked in glorious sheen." SEVEX SENTENCE SERMONS.

Today's study tells one reason why Abraham was styled the Father of the Faithful. His history, depicted in the Bible, is one of trust in the Divine promises: but the final test, which w study today, marked him very high, according to Divine and human stand ards. The faith recorded in our les son is so colossal as to amaze us! This test came through the Divine command that Abraham should take Isaac, the heir of promise, and offer him in sacrifice on Mt. Moriah. Abra ham was now 125 years old. Isaac was the Divinely appointed channel for the blessings promised. Now after half a century of waiting and trust ing could it be nossible that God wished him thus to demonstrate his faith? It was so. He had a positive cormand. It was no imagination, no whisperings of witches or wizards. It was no dream. To one of Abraham's character, the Divine command meant prompt obedi ence. Forthwith he journeyed, accom panied by his servants. Then leaving them, Abraham and Isaac journeyed to the top of Mt. Moriah. afterwards the site of the Temple. The very rock upon which Isaac is supposed to have been bound became the location for the Brazen Altar. The patriarch and his son came to this spot. Then Abraham, with fal tering lips, but determined heart, told Isaac of the Divine command. There he offered his son. even though the knife did not strike the fatal blow. The offering was complete in the sight of Heaven: and the hand was stayed. As the Apostle explains, "Abraham received his son. from the dead in a figure." Hebrews 11:19. Tlie Antitype of All This. These incidents of olden time had their effect upon the actors; but to God's consecrated people, enlightened by the Holy Spirit, they have still fur ther meaning. Abraham served as a type of God. and Isaac of Christ. Head and Body. In the antitype God freely offered His Son for the sins of the whole world. t"God gave His only Begotten Son, that whosoever believ eth" on Him might have everlasting life." In the antitype God arranged that Jesus should be Head of the Church, which is His Body. Hence the suffer ings of Christ, accomplished by. Jesus, w'ere only part of the sufferings of the antitypical Isaac Here the Apostle de clares, "We, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise." The Church of Christ Is required to prove her worthless of sharing in the First Resurrection, by being made conform able to Christ's death. The cup which our Lord drank He passed on to His followers, saying, "Drink ye all of it." The Ham in the Thicket, When God stayed Abraham's hand through the angel, a ram caught in a thicket was provided as a sacrifice in stead. Thus a ram in sacrifice became the symbol of the Seed of Abraham, and an indication of the process by which reconciliation of Divine Justice will be made on behalf of humanity. This thought was repeated in God's subsequent dealings with Israel. Thus the Passover Lamb was slain, and its blood sprinkled, typically foretelling that there could be no Church of the First-born during this Gospel Age, ex cept through the slain "Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world.'- Israel's sin of f erings and burnt offering3 spoke of a redemptive work to be accomplished before the blessing could come. 1 Amongst many lessons learned from the testings of Abraham's faith are these: (1) The necessity for the death of the One through whom blessings will even tually come to mankind. If Jesus had not died for our sins, there would have been no remission of them. Hence there would have been no resurrection of the dead, and in that event death would have meant extinction. (2) Let us be sure that if Jesus had not faithfully consummated His part of the agreement and laid down His life, neither would He have shared in the grand consummation and exaltation to the Divine nature. St. Paul declared this, saying that our Lord was obedient unto death, "even the death of the cross, wherefore (on this account) God also hath highly exalted Him." Phll lipians 2:8,9. (3) We are to remember that the same rule applies to all of the Church. It is not sufficient that we consecrate our lives. We must show our -loyalty and our faithfulness by laying down our lives, by taking up the cross, by drinking of His cup, by being immersed into His death. Only such will share Messiah's Throne of Glory. "If we suf fer, we shall reign with Him; if we be dead with Him, we shall also live with Him." 2 Timothy 2:11, 12; Romans 8:17. EVERYBODY'S BIBLE BOX. ' Q- Is "hell" a place or a condition? (J. M. R.) Answer. The word "hell" occurs thirty-one times in the Old Testament, and in every instance it is sheol in the Hebrew. The meaning of sheol is, the hidden state, as applied to man's con dition in death in and beyond which all is hidden, except to the eye of faith; hence, by proper and close as sociation, the word was often used in the sense of grave the tomb, the hidden place. Sheol, therefore, and its Greek equivalent, hades, may properly be considered in both of these senses, either a condition or a place. When our Anglo-Saxon forefathers helled their potatoes in the fall of the year by covering them with dirt, they had them in a concealed place and in a hidden condition! If one says that "hell" is a state or, condition, and an other says that it is a place, we need not necessarily faint away with sur prise and perplexity, as both are true and thoroughly orthodox. There are two other Greek terms which have been translated "hell." These are Ge henna and tartaroo. Gehenna in its true significance, means the place of destruction. We should not quarrel with any one who may say that it represents the condition of destruc tion. The word "tartaroo" seems to refer more to an act than to a place. The fall of the angels who sinned was from honor and dignity, into dishonor and condemnation, and the thought seems to be that "God spared not the angels who sinned, but degraded them, and delivered them into chains of darkness." Oblivion and annihila tion are terms that apply to those who enter into the destruction of ge henna the state, condition or place of "as though they had not been." Obadiah 16. Q. What is meant by the term "Paradise;" and where is it? If Para dise has been lost, will it ever be re stored? (Eve.) Answer. Paradise signifies a gar den or park, and is applied in the Scriptures primarily to the Garden of Eden. The ideal conditions prevailed in that favored spot, a perfect home for the perfect man specially pre pared by the Lord. Beautiful birds and flowers, with graceful animals coursing about, and splendid fish in the crystal streams, with not a single note of inharmony to mar the peace and happiness reflected in all nature. What a magnificent place for the glorious creature, man, whom God had formed in His own image and likeness! This "heaven on earth" condition was all forfeited through disobedience, and not only this, but life also. Driven out of the garden into the harsh and barren world where the thorns and thistles were thriving under the curse, man has groaned and struggled as he pursued his sorrowing course towards the tomb, dreaming and longing for the time when paradise would be restored, for the Lord had given him a faint ray of hope in the promise that the seed of the woman should bruise the serpent's head. (Genesis 3:15.) The Seed of the woman is the Lord Jesus who will destroy the serpent, Satan, and deliver mankind from the do minion of sin and death, in "the times of restoration of all things" (Acts 3:19-21) when the whole earth shall bloom and blossom, as the rose and paradise will be restored. "And they shall say. This land that was desolate is become like the Garden of Eden: and the waste and desolate and ruin ed cities, are become fenced and are inhabited." Ezekiel 36:35; Isaiah 35:8-10. Q. Are you in sympathy with the thought that the three days mentioned in Matthew 12:40. included the time from our Lord's betrayal in the Garden of Gethsemane to the time of His res urrection, or was it just the actual time during which He was in the tomb? (R. M. J.) Answer. The evidence is quite clear and strong that the Savior died on a Friday afternoon at three o'clock, and was placed in the tomb shortly there after. (Matthew 27:46. 57-60; Mark 15:34.42; Luke 23:54.) He was raised the third day, Sunday, early in the morn ing, possibly at about five or six o'clock. (Matthew 28:1; John 20:1.) Thus the Lord was in the tomb some thing less than forty hours. We would not think that Jonah was in the in terior of the great sea monster any longer than this. The scribes and the Pharisees had asked for a "sign" from the Master, and His reply was that "there shall no sign be given, but the j sign of . the , prophet Jonas." As the I Prophet was entombed in the great ! fish, so the Lord Jesus would be in "the I heart - of the earth" the . tomb. It j would require a considerable amount of 'manipulation of the Scriptures, and the exercise -.of - an , abnormal imaginative faculty to construe the statement of ; the Lord to signify that the three days j and nights included a portion of the time that He was not in the tomb. The I three days in the tomb would be a striking "sign" to that generation, whereas, the other construction of the . Master's statement would be no "sign" 'at all. We are not in sympathy with i the view suggested in the question. The t less complex the interpretation of tlie j Bible; the more simple and plain we ! make its teachings: the more easily are j the people convinced of the truthful ness of the sacred writers, and there fore the more firmly established in "the true faith once delivered to the saints."
