Chanukah commemorates the eventful triumph of the Maccabees over the hosts of Syria. This his torical occurrence happened as a re sult of the victories of the Maccabees in their warfare against Antiochus IV, called ‘'Epiphanes," the mad man, in the year 165 B. C. E. The Syrian tyrant had resolved on im perialistic policies in which a unifi cation of all his provinces and pos sessions in respect to language a*nd religious observance was to be car ried out. The religion selected as the established or state religion of his realm was Greek polytheism, with all it sensuous appeals and im moral practices. In promulgating this edict Antio chus IV did not reckon with the stern moralists of Palestine. The idolatrous rites were' treated as ab ominations by the Jewish people who instantly opposed their enforcement. Coercive measures introduced by the throne to compel an outward compliance with the edict precipita ted a revolt on the part of Matta thias, a priest of Modin, a suburb of Jerusalem. Under the leadership of the aged priest and his sons, of whom Judah is the most famous, the Palestinian Jews threw themselves against the powerful armies of Syria. These crude armies of embattled farmers held the hosts of Syria at bay during four territic years of war fare and finally succeeded in driving the invaders out of the country. The Temple at Jerusalem which had been defiled by pagan practices was rededicated on the 25th of Kis ley of the Hebrew Calendar, which corresponds to the month of Decem ber. In commemoration of the vic tory the feast of Chanukah is cele brated even unto this dsy. Among the old legends recounting the miraculous intervention of Prov idence in behalf of Israel is the story of the preservation of a single cruse of undetiled oil found in the temple at the occasion of this rededication, which burned for eight days. In re cognition of this, lights are kindled in the home for that period, lighting one on the first night, two on the second and so on. No special synagogal service is held during Chanukah week but a prayer is introduced in the ritual stressing the ultimate triumph of righteousness over the tyranny of might, showing that God and the right form a majority no armies of men can overthrow. In Jewish circles there are parties given at this time and in religious schools plays and pageants present ed expressive of the glorious victory of the few and feeble over the ag gression of tyrants and despots. The joyful character of the day is always accentuated in home, syna gog and religious school and the [ valor of the Maccabees revered.

ELLIS Places suggest memories; and this ] lesson (which I nave been holding i for two and a half years! is being written on the heaving bosom of the ' Mediterranean, [lie glorious blue of which must have satisfied the beauty-lovii.g soui of the Apostle i'aul us he sailed to and fro across It. in storm and calm. This is Paul's sea. the sea tha. he travelled as a missionary and the sea that wreck ed his little craft. Our course is laid toward the c.ty of Antioch, whence he started or. his Journeys, but, although out of sight of land at the moment, we are nearer Eph esus than Antioch Most of the passengers have been laid low by the heavy sra; and as I think of the tiny craft upon which the apostle , and his companions adventured these great waters I wonder if he also, sensitive creature that he was. had to roll up in liia cloak under a sheltering side of the ship and sim ply endure the voyage. It is worthy of note now little Paul tells us about himself and his travel expe riences. Ke had more important things to say. With thronging thoughts of the author, a real man knowing real life, a cosmopolitan man thinking In general terms, we take up these mighty words of his concerning the grare of God, addressed to the Christians at Ephesus. That is the first j oin't to perceive. These ut terances are not vague generalities, spoken into space. They are per sonal, and as direct and applicable , as the letter a traveler sends to his fami y. As he wrote, Paul had in mind the Christians at Ephesus, the city wherP he had undergone tem pestuous experiences. Tim City of Diana Even as I have paused here to look upon the surging sea—wild white horses galloping over blue pastures —did Paul raise his pen occasional ly to think of Ephesus; it* great i marble theatre, where for hours the silly mob yelled their throats sore in praise of Diana as a protest against his preaching; its magnifi cent highway leading down to the quay, with statues a«d fountains and fountains and temples and baths linirg it; its hug- stadium on the hillside beyond the theatre; its arti ficial harbor, shaped like a frying pan. and crowded with traffic from th<- Mediterranean? Scenes of its splendor aid of its sensually ma> I haw crowded hia active brain as he j dwelt upon the surroundings of these I friends who were "called to be saints"—Ja heathsr, proflgate Ephe- I •us! Eet no one say that these passages from Paul's writing are only for the ! Apostolic church and not for us in our more difficult limes; thsnk God. owing to such preaching as Paul's have no conception of the un Christian character of the Komar civilization amid which Paul's con- I verta had to practice their faith. | The worst of our modern cities is righteous as compared with old Eph- | esus Right here we see the audacity of j Christianity. It offers the best to the worst, the highest to the lowest. Degradation does not daunt It. To the sensualized Roman it gives a lofty spirituality. There Is no adapt ing of the message to the taste of the hearer; the Gospel is not cheapened or watered down. With a sublime disregard of enivronment and hered ity. Paul presents to the Ephesians exalted spiritual truths concerning the nature of God and of His provi sions for man's redemption, and of the duty of even a citizen of Ephe »H« to live a saintly life. This is the answer to the half-baked intelli gence which declares that one can not be a Christian in camp or In business, or in shop or in college or wherever else th> complainer's lot may be cast. Behold, one could be a Christian even in Ephesus! (M Dislikes Boasters Squarely countering the old nav tendency to regard nr.an as big and God as little, Paul declared that all the salvation that had come to his Ephesian converts had been because of the nature of God. Men are not saved by being good, but because they are saved they become good. They a-e si.ved because God is good. He is rich i.i mercy. It is His char- . aeter that provides redemption. Not our deserving, but His designs, Im part life. G.id being the sort of God He ,'s, makes It possible for His wan dering children to come back home, led by His Son, Jesus. What God is Christ is; and Christ shares Him self with His friends By grace are ye saved, through faith: and that not by yourselves; it is the gift of God: not of works, lest any man should boast."
