A Lesson for the Week
On the Wall of Jerusalem at Easter
Writer Muses Upon Sacred Sites. *
MAY I tell again, as light on the perennial theme of Baster, which
claims the whole world’s thought, the story of an Baster morning I
once spent on a housetop on the city wall of Jerusalem? The city
was full of pilgrims, from every branch of the world-wide Christian
church. The Holy City is a crowded, cosmopolitan center on the days of the
resurrection rendezvous! All colors and classes and creeds are represented;
mellowed and merged by the common quest for a new experience of the
risan Christ. To be in Jerusalem for Holy Week—what a dream eome true
is this for myriads of devout disciples 1
In fullest fellowship with this multitude of pngrtm«J we too my wife
and I, kept Easter apart from the throng. We had gone with a multitude
to the Garden of Gethaemane on the.
anniversary of our Lord's agony, and
we had visited the somber-draped
Church of the Holy Sepulchre on
Good Friday, but for the dawn of
Easter we arranged to have all to our
selves the highest housetop on the
northern wall of Jerusalem, near the
Damascus gate.
This spot which we had chosen
overlooked the city and the highway
outside of the wall and Gordon’s Cal
vary and Garden Tomb. Whichever

way we turned,
some spot asso
ciated with the
death and burial
and resurrection
of Jesus fell un
der our eyes.

Imagine the huzzahs of the Tri

hate-filled cries, “Crucify Him!” The
tumult of the crucifixion, perhaps on
that very hill to the north, a stone's
throw away, called “Gordon’s Cal
vary,” where is now a Moslem ceme
tery; the slow, heartbroken wail of
the women bearing spices to the
neighboring grave, and the swift rush
of Peter and John, after they had
heard Mary’s incredible news.
As near as mortal could get to the
theater of the greatest events in the
history of eternity were we two, alone
on that housetop on the wall of Jeru
salem. at break of day on Easter.
Watching Jerusalem Awaken.
Amidst the soft stillness of dawn, we
stood watching the scene, with its
overtone of gray. The roof on which
we were standing was gray, the city
wall was gray, the dominant color of
the old city was gray, and the shad
owed face of the Mount of Olives was
gray. Although we were on the high
est spot in the city, yet we could per
ceive how entirely, on every side. Jeru
salem is surrounded by greater
heights. Truly, “The mountains are
round about Jerusalem.’’
Out of the Arabian desert the sun
had pointed his spears westward, and
these soon shone above the crest of
Olivet, striking first the towers of
Government House and of the Church
of the Ascension, on the top of the
hill. Swiftly the King of Day marched
onward, and points of light touched
the tops of the Mosque of Omar, of
the Church of the Holy Sepulchre,
and of the two German church towers
in the city of Jerusalem. The face
of the Mount of Olives, where stately
cypresses lifted their spires like as
cending flame* of prayer, began to
lighten. Even as we watched the day
dawn, so the earliest friend* of Jesus,
whose heartbroken love had outrun
the morning, had looked for the com
ing of the first Easter.
The city began to wake up. Smoke
ascended from a group of black tents,
outside of the wall. Some traffic ap
peared on the streets. The bells of
the churches began to toll—one insist

tuoui street* below us, we eaught
gllmpeea of Christiana hurrying to
worship. This was a day of days In
the city of memories.
Dawn on the Hon—top.
It aeems almost a violation of the
sanctities to relate the Easter service
which we two held on that Jerusalem
housetop, as dawn merged Into full
day. We read together all the Gospel
narratives of the resurrection and
Paul’s majestic presentation of immor
Insistently there crowded upon us
the place-sense of all the events of
which the Scripture tells. We could
lift up our eyes and behold all illumi
nated the theme. Across the road a
little company of American and Brit
ish Christians, gathered for a sunrise
service at the Garden Tomb, sang fa
miliar Easter hymns. The great
churches which abound in Jerusalem
repeated the same Jubilation by their
bells. Eager-faced pedestrians gave
testimjpiy to the same resurrection
Somewhere, within a few rods of
where we stood and worshipped, Jesus
Christ was crucified and buried and
rose again from the dead. That stu
pendous realisation tinged all of our
thinking. Yet we were glad that the
exact spots are not known of a cer
tainty. For the redemption of man
kind is not bound up with any one
site. It is a universal truth, and its
real scene is in the Father heart of
God. Our spirits kept repeating, “He
1s not here; He is risen!” The mys
tery of the resurrection is for eVery
one as personal and near as if enacted
in his own home town.
One writer, Father John Tabb, has
pictured the truth more vividly than
could we whose privilege it was to
behold the setting of the Great Trans
action from a housetop on the wall
of Jerusalem on Easter morning:
“Under an eastern sky.
Amidst the rabble's cry,
A Man went forth to die
For me.
“Thorn-crowned His blessed head;
Blood-stained His every tread;
Cross-laden, on He sped.
For me.
“Pierced glow His hands and feet;
Three hours o'er Him beat
Fierce rays of noontide heat
For me.
“Thus wert Thou made all mine;
Lord, make me wholly Thine;
Grant grace and strength divine
To me.”
Easter In the Heart.
All other meanings of Easter are
gathered up into this one of its per
sonal application. That Jesus died in
order that man might live is the su
preme mystery and mercy of time and
eternity. Theologians used to debate
and define. Our modern mood is less
calculating. We cannot explain the
atonement, nor measure the heinous
ness of sin nor the height of divine
love. We only know that in a way
beyond our telling God's only Son
was crucified and rose again from the
dead in order that an at-one-ment of
man and God might be secured.
Deaths terror, too, died for the
Christian when Christ died. The age
less, intangible hope of immortality
became a definite reality in the resur
rection of Jesus. Every life that has
seen the cold, still form of a dear one
go down into the grave, places all hope
for the reunion in the pledge given by
the risen Christ: “Because I live, ye
shall live also.”
