JESUS TEACHING IX THE
TEMPLE.—Luke. 20.1-21. 3S.
Golden Text—Render therefore
unto Caesar the things which
bo Caesar's, and unto God the
things which be God's.—Luke,
20.20.
Christ's triumphant entrance into
Jerusalem revealed Ills popularity
and power with the people, who had
assembled in Jerusalem for the pass
over. The influence of the Master
with the masses threatened the re
ligious and political leaders with a
reformation that would destroy them.
Jesus had demonstrated His attitude
toward the combination of religious
and financial Interests when He
drove the money changers out of the
Temple. During most of His minis
try He had met the Intense opposition
of the Pharisees. His teachings were
diametrically opposite their hypocritical
and formalistic Ideals, which He hart
exposed with such skill that they
were determined to destroy Him.
They formed a combination of the
religious and political forces to mur
der Him. The Sadducees. who had
not been as bitter against the
as the Pharisees, were offended b>
His teachings, which were, they felt,
antagonistic to their interests. They
could not endure the revelation of
the sinful life of the Jewish leaders.
The orlhodex Pharisees and the
liberal Sadduoees would never have
entered Into a combination with the
Hcrodians except they had been
moved by the strongest possible mo
tives. They hated the despised Hero
dians. who were champions of the
supporters of the family of Herod.
They were considered to be renegades
and would not have been welcomed
as allies if they had not feared that
the popularity of Jesus threatened
their own position, as leaders. They
had no sympathy with the Hcrodians'
position that the law of Moses, pro
hibiting tho placing of a stranger
over the nation as ruler, did not ap
ply if they were placed over them by
some conquering power. The com
bination of these three Hebrew par
ties. which were naturally and his
torically antagonistic to one another,
in an effort to destroy the popular
ity. prestige and power of Jesus, was
a powerful combine. They sought to
entrap Him by a series of questions
that covered politics, theology and
ethics.
They tried to turn the tide of
popular favor against Jesus by ques
tioning His authority. He in turn
put them to confusion by questioning
them concerning the authority of
Johr Baptist. He Indirectly an
swered them by the parable of the
vineyard, which vividly train ted Israel's
approaching doom. They understood
His charges against themselves that
the Master pictured In the parable.
Jesus sealed His fate by His predic
tion of the displacement of the
chosen people by the gentiles. His
condemnation of the ecclesiastical
loaders’ iniquity, and His claims to
deity.
They tried to entrap the Christ with
a iHilitlcal problem that was an adroit
and dangerous dilemma. They tried
to throw Him off His guard by a hyp
ocritical profession of faith and con
fidence in His sincerity and fearless
ness. They asked concerning the law
fulness of tribute to Caesar. An in
dorsement of tribute giving would
alienate the tax-burdened Jew. A
protest against It would bring Jesus
into conflict with the strong arm of
the Roman government as a traitor.
They would have willingly appeared
as witnesses against the Master if He
were charged with sedition and dis
loyalty.
Christ was not deceived. He met
their attempt by compelling them to
become witnesses to their own hy
pocrisy. He asked them to produce a
Roman denarius, that was worth
about 17 cents or a day's wages. He
answered them in a statement that
Von Ranke has well called "the most
revolutionary utterance” of the Lord.
They were silenced and baffled by the
profound and far-reaching principles
stated in our golden text, "Render
unto Caesar the things that are Cae
sar's. and unto God the things that
are God’st" His answer filled the ex
pert lawyers with amazement. He
stated an evidently Just political prin
ciple, that was destined to "lift em
pires off their hinges and to turn the
current of the ages out of its chan
nel," but its significance was bevond
them. In emphasizing the duty of all
to pay both their religious and politi
cal obligations, the one to G-od and
the other to the state, Jesus did not
teach that there existed no relation
between church and state. He taught
that "the state, as a state, has abso
lutely no religious function; the
church, as a church, has absolutely no
political function: that proper lovaitv
to church and proper loyal tv to state
never conflict.” Christ did not come
to set up a kingdom that would over
throw or dominate any political gov
ernment. But the principle He enun
ciated has become a part of national
constitutions. In the providence of
God it remained for our country to
first demonstrate the practicability of
the Master’s teachings concerning
religious liberty. The American ideal
of government is In accordance with
Christ's answer that organized reli
gion and organized politics are to he
kept forever separate. We must re
member that the success and stability
of any nation depends upon the work
ing out In Us political life of the prin
ciples of Jesus in the life of its clli
zens*.
The Pharisees and Hcrodians hav
ing been silenced, the Kadduoees
next tried to Insnare the Master with
a theological test question that has
been puzzling to others besides this
Jewish sect which, as a class, denied
the resurrection. They presented for
solution a striking case under the
Icvlrate marriage law to prove the
confusion that would result In the
world to come as a result of plural
marriages. But Jesus pointed out
calmly and courteously the two er
rors in their reasoning; first, a lack
of Knowledge of the Scriptures them
selves. and second, a misconception of
the power of God.
The Master's teachings concerning
the form of tho body of the risen
dead in His answer to the Sadducees
Is the only distinct teaching that He
has given upon this subject. The fact
that our resurrection bodies will he
like those of angels not barthlv or
physical, is in accord with Paul’s ex
position upon the resurrection given
us In Corinthians. Jesus pointed out
that His teachings concerning Im
mortality harmonized with those of
the Old Tcetament. He implied that
alt the dead ate alive. He conquered
them by answers that silenced His
opponents. While the Master did not
answer all of the questions of the
human heart concerning the future
and life beyond the grave, yet He jn
veiled enough in this lesson to justi
fy hope in such a life.
The two other synoptic gospels tell
of a scribe who was attracted by the
Lord’s way of handling the questions
put to Him. He approached the
Taacher with an old teat queatlon of
the rabbis ae to which is the greatest
commandment. Christ’s answer cannot
be surpassed as a summary of human
duties. It was satisfactory to the
questioner himself. His approval In
will preach the third eermon In the
series on "The Soul's Thirst for God,”
and Thursday evening the fourth ad
dress in the series on "The Apostles*
Creed."
♦* * *
Rev. Irvin* W. Kctchum's subject
tomorrow night at Peck Memorial
ChapSl la. “Is It Ever Too Late to
Repent?" In the morning he will
speak on "Anointed With Oil.”
Wednesday at 8 p.m. the annual
congregational business meeting will
be held. Reports of the year’s work
will b« flven. Refreshments will ke
served,
dlcate* that he belonged to the pro
gressive spiritual element which saw
that forms and ceremonies did not
constitute all of religion. The truly
spiritual man will not despise forms
as a means of giving expression to
religious Impulses, but the formal
ritualist Is apt to fail to look for
the spiritual, which Is, after all, the
essential thing In the true worship
01 God. The frankness of tne scribe
appealed to the Christ and Ho com
mended him ns one who had come
very near the kingdom of God.
This recognition ought to have en
couraged him to step over the line
and became a disciple of tho Lord
Jesus. Conviction Is not conversion.
One may be master of spiritual
knowledge and not possess the spir
itual experience of the new birth. The
silencing of the scribe closes the
efforts to entangle the Master, for
we read that "no man durst ask Him
any questions."
After that series of victories Christ
assumed the offensive. Tie was not
satisfied with merely vanquishing his
adversaries, for He made another ef
fort to win them, pointing out their
mistaken views concerning the
Messiah. He tried to eradicate their
false views of the kingdom that He
came to establish. He sgught to have
them acknowledge Him as the splrtual
Messiah. He wanted them to see that
He was not a national but a univer
sal ruler. The one thing which the
world needs to stabilize society, re
store order and promote peace among
all nations, creeds and races is the
acceptance and practicing of the prin
ciples that the .Master taught.
While busy with His conflicts with
His enemies, Jesus noted the manner
with which people deposited their
gifts and offerings. He saw the timid
woman, whose heart was filled with
gratitude for God's grace and mercy,
conic and give her all to the services
of Jehovah. That gift of the widow's
mile has encouraged many to give to
tfie Master’s kingdom, but no one can
claim to be giving the widow's mite
unless the one gives his all. Jesus
seeks today to win the world to His
standards. When all shall be filled
with love such as the poor widow had
for God and His worship, the forces
of the Master will sweep the nations
of the earth by their evangel and
bring In the kingdom that will be
our Tiord's when He returns to rule
the nations of the world. May He
come quickly:

speaker. Dr. A, M. Hrodle. who spoke
on “Christian Service as Applied in
Everyday Affairs."
"Few of us,” said Dr. Brodie, "are
really happy. True happiness can-toe
obtained only from true service,
which only comes from following the
way the Master led. Jesus introduced
& new Idea Into the world when He
made service to others of more promi
nence than service from others The
greatest person in this audience is
not the one with the most money, or
the most fame, or the moet servants,
but the one who most truly serves
others in proportion to his or her
ability. We have only two relation
ships in this world—to God and to
our fellow-men —and to serve the one
!s to serve the other. Service to God
is not only in prayer and worship and
church attendance, hut in helping His
children "
There will be no service at Keith's
today or tomorrow, but an interest
ing program has been arranged for
next week.

PLANS PURIM FESTIVAL
FOR TOMORROW NIGHT
Hebrtw School of Ohev-Sholom
* Synagogue Will Entertain With
Recitations, Music and Sketch.
A purlin festival will be given by
the Hebrew School of the Ohev-Sho
lom Synagogue, at sth and 1 streets,
tomorrow night at 7 o’clock.
The program will consist of recita
tions. music, and a short I’urirn sketch.
The feast of Purlm la celebrated In
commemoration of the deliverance of
Israel from the evil designs of cruel
Hainan, as related in the Book of
Esther. Purlin Is u constant remind
er of the various epochs in the ca
reer of the Hebrew race, which is be
set with enemies seeking Us destruc
tion. Rabbi J, T. Loeb explains.
Continuing, ha says of the festival:
"Hainan's denunciation against Oie
‘people dispersed and scattered in all
the provinces’ of the old Persian em
pire Is re-echoed with shocking force
through the passing ages in all the
lands and states of Us dispersion. The
same people are still here, as of old. to
celebrate the salvation of God and the
triumph over all earthly things.
“Purim is therefore a joy day. in
spiring confidence In a divine power
frustrating the designs of the wicked
and preserving the destiny of Israel.
The jovial nature of the Purim feast,
as practiced in orthodox synagogues
by the 'Hatnan-cloppers' during the
reading of the Megillah (Rook of
Esther) the evening and morning of
Purim, is a token of defiance against
the wicked Hainan of all times and
conditions. It is an expression of
hope that the Amalakite in all gen
erations shall he wiped oft before the
Lord, and the cause of the righieous
shall triumph at. the end.”
