Subject: Jesus at tbe Pool of Betliesdn, John v., 1-15—Golden Test, John vi., 9—Memory Verses, 8, 9—Commentary on the Kay’s Lesson. I. Jesus at the feast (vs. 1-4). 1. “Af ter this.” “After these things.” R. V. Some think that when John is telling some event which follows immediately after the last thing narrated, he uses the expression “after this thing” (chap. 2:12), but that when there has been an interval of time he uses the expression “after these things.” “A feast.” There has been much differ ence of opinion as to what feast' this was, but it is the opinion now of the best writ ers that it was the Passover. 2. “By the sheep gate” (R. V.) We know from Neh. 3:1, 32; 12:39 that there was a sheep gate; so called probably from sheep for sacrifice being sold there. It was near tbe temple. “The Hebrew tongue.” Hebrew here means Aramaic, the language spoken at the time, not the old Hebrew of tbe Scrip tures. “Bethesda.” This name does not occur elsewhere. It means “house of mer cy.” The site is not identified with cer tainty. The traditional spot is near Castle Antonia. But Dr. Robinson thinks “the fountain of the Virgin,” an intermittent spring in the southeast of the city, near the pool of Silaom, was Bethesda. “Hive porches.” These porches were probably covered arcades, colonades or verandas, open at one side to the air. but protected against the sun or rain overhead. In a hot country like Palestine such buildings are very necessary. 3. “Multitude.” The sick congregated here in great numbers. TI. Jesus heals an impotent man (vs. 5-9). 5. “An infirmity.” The original im plies rather a loss of power than a positive disease; probably it was a nervous disease of paralytic type. “Thirty and eight years.” The duration of the illness is mentioned, either to show how inveterate and difficult it was to 'heal, or rather, ac cording to verse fi. to explain the deep comnassion with which Jesus was affected on beholding the unhappy man. From verse 14 we may infer that his disease was the result of the sins of his youth. fi. “Knew.” The word “knew” in the original indicates one or tnose instantan eous perceptions by which the truth be came known to Jesus according as the task of the moment demanded. Verse 14 will show that the whole life of the sufferer is present to the eye of Jesus, as that of the Samaritan woman was in chapter 4. “Saith unto him.” Usually Christ waited until He was asked before He relieved the suf fering, but in this and a few other cases He healed without being asked. He read the man’s past life and present condition of mind, and saw that he was in a state to receive spiritual good from the healing. “Wilt thou?” Why does He ask a ques tion to which, the answer was so obvious? Probably in order to rouse the sick man out of his lethargy and despondency. 7. “No man.” He was friendless as well as sick. “Is troubled.” This spring, prob ably the fountain of the Virgin, is inter mittent to this day. and various travelers have seen it suddenly rise from five inches to a foot in five minutes. Whedon thinks that the moving of the waters arose from an underground connection of the pool with the city water works. The occasional and intermittent disturbance of the water is not to be understood as a regular occur rence. but as something sudden and quick ly pasing away. Hence the man’s waiting and complaint. “Put me info the pooi.” Literally, “in order to throw” me into the pool; perhaps implying that the gush of water did not last long, and there was no time to be lost in quiet carrying. “While I am coming.” Thus picturing the extreme haste and rapidity with which the favor able opportunity was seized. There was a rush and scramble for the one chance. O. JLV1J5C, ut. vuuiuuuni^ uric i-ucac would test the man’s faith and obedience. As in the case of the paralytic. (Mark 2:91, Christ made no enquiry as to the man’s faith. Christ knew that he had faith, and the man’s attempting to rise and carry his bed after thirty-eight years of impotenev was an open confession of faith. “Bed.” Probably only a mat or rug, still common in the East. 9. “And walked.” With the command was given tlie power of obe dience. So the sinner who is bidden to commit himself to Christ need not wait for any compulsion. As lie makes the ef fort he will find divine power within him self. “Sabbath.” The seventh day of the week, the Jewish Sabbath. III. Persecution of the Jews (vs. 10-13). 10. “Not lawful.” Jeremiah had com manded, “Take heed to yourselves, and bear no burden on the Sabbath day” (16: 21), and the Jews interpreted this as for bidding the carrying of the lightest weight. But Jeremiah’s meaning is made clear by Nell. 13:15: “Treading wine presses on the Sabbath, and bringing in sheaves, and lad ing asses.” etc. “To forbid this man from carrying his bed was like forbidding a mod ern man to move a camp stool or a chair.” 11. “He—said.” Unquestionably the words seem to say that one who could do such a wonder as healing me must certain ly have the right to tell me what to do. He had been authorized by one endorsed as sent from God. And this was indeed the very ground which Christ Himself took. 12. “Who Is the man” (E. V.) They ignore the miracle, and attack the command. They ask not. “Who cured thee, and therefore must have divine au thority?” hut, “Who told thee to break the Sabbath, and therefore could not have it?” 13. “Knew not” (E V.) Jesus had been in Jerusalem but little, and the man who was healed had probably never seen Him. “Conveyed himself away.” Better, withdrew. Literally, “slipped aside,” be came suddenly lost to sight. “A multi tude,” etc. This may he understood ns explaining either why he withdrew—to avoid the crowd, or the manner in which he withdrew—by disappearing in the crowd. Either explanation makes good sense. IY. Jesus gives advice and warning (v. 14). 14. “Afterward.” Probably soon af terward; in a day or so. “Findeth him.” Jesus had His eye on the man; His work with him was not yet finished: this meet ing was not accidental. “In the temple.” A good place for the man to he. “Sin no more.” God asks this of every sinner. And yet there are those who insist that it is imnossible to live without sin in this life, but if such is the ease then Jesus asked this man to do the impossible. “A worse thing.” A paralysis from which no pool can restore and no Saviour will de liver; the most terrible catastrophe of the soul's eternal history. V. The man bears testimony (v. 15). 15. “Told the Jews,” etc. In reply to the inquiry they had made of him a short time before, partly in obedience to the authori ties and partly to complete his apology for himself. He expected, probably, in the simplicity of his heart, that the name of Him whom so many counted as a prophet, if not as the Messiah Himself, would have been sufficient to stop the mouths of gain sayers.. Dog No Match for Wildcat. A dog belonging to a man named Grey of Georgis Corner, Me., went out in search of foxes the other day and ran on to a genuine loupcervier. Mr. Grey heard the tumult in the woods ahead and rushing up to shoot the fox was surprised to see the dog prone on the ground in a very dilapidated shape vHth the big cat high up among the branches contemplating a fresh as sault. He avenged the attack on the dog by slaying the cat. 1 Dogs are slaughtered for culinary pur poses In Munich. Itch cured in 30 minutes by Woolford’s Sanitary Lotion. Never fails.

One of the most famous of German physicians for the treatment of mental Ii.seases, Prof. Ludwig, is earnestly idvocating the employment of women physicians in lunatic asylums. After years of investigation he has come to the conclusion that the insane are pe- I puliarly susceptible to a woman’s pres- j ?nce and influence, not only the wo men, but the men as well. He says he has been instrumental in obtaining the admission of one woman physi cian to an asylum for women in South Germany, and the results are simply phenomenal. The women are more tractable. Ludwig is certain that in a short time no men physicians will be pmployed in female lunatic asylums. His opinion is supported in large, meas ure by another eminent authority, Dr. i Kranelin.—New York World, Raising Geese by Thousands. On a goose farm in the middle west there is an incubator with a capacity for 10,000 eggs. These eggs are not, however, placed in the incubator at one time, but are so arranged that one section will hatch each day, being re filled as soon as the goslings are taken out. The geese are raised on this farm for their feathers alone, which are used in the upholstering business. Some people think the road to Heav en is a switch-back where they need the descent into sin to give the im petus for the rise into glory. READS THE BOOK. •The Koad to Wellvills” Pointed the Way Down at Hot Springs, Ark., the vis itors have all sorts of complaints, but it is a subject of remark that the great majority of them have some trouble with stomach and bowels. This may be partly attributed to the heavy medi cines. Naturally, under the conditions, the question of food is very prominent. A young man states that he had suf fered for nine years from stomach and bowel trouble, bad two operations which did not cure, and was at last threatened with appendicitis. He went to Hot Springs for rheuma tism and his stomach trouble got worse. One day at breakfast the wait er, knowing his condition, suggested he try Grape-Nuts and cream, which he did, and found the food agreed with him perfectly. After the second day he began to sleep peacefully at night, different than he had for years. The perfect diges tion of the food quieted his nervous sjsieriu aiiu. mauc oictry pt/ocsiuitr. He says: "The next morning I was astonished to find my condition of con stipation had disappeared. I could not believe it true after suffering for so many years; then I took more interest in the food, read the little book ‘The Road to Wellville,’ and started follow ing the simple directions. “I have met with such results that in the last five weeks I have gained eight pounds in spite of hot baths which take away the flesh from any one. “A friend of mine has been entirely cured of a bad case of indigestion and stomach trouble by using Grape-Nuts Food and cream alone for breakfast. “There is one thing in particular—I have noticed a great change in my mental condition.
