Sunday School Lesson For March 24 SENIOR BEREAN, INTERNATION AL SERIES. GOLDEN TEXT. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners (Mark ii, 17). Versos 13, 14.—A call to the ministry. Capernaum was situated on the main caravan route from Damascus to Jeru salem and on to Egypt and the Medi terranean; it was also a center of the flatting industry aud a port of entry of much importance. “By the seaside.” He went whore the people were to he found. “And he taught them.” He had only one subject—the kingdom of God and the need for repentance —but he ex pounded it by parables and proverbs, by miracles of healing and sympathetic ways of intercourse with all classes and conditions of people. It was to be expected that “all the multitude re sorted unto him”—some in amazement, others in admiration and not a few in affection. His influence was also spread ing among the “unchurched.” “The re ceipt of custom.” Capernaum was an important toll station where customs duties were levied and taxes collected for the tetrarch of Galilee. The work of collecting the taxes was farmed out to men of wealth: they in turn sublet the districts to contractors, who gener ally employed the natives of the place ns collectors of the rents and taxes. These menial officers were especially detested in Palestine, where the pay ment of taxes to a foreign and heathen government was resented for religious and patriotic reasons. These publicans, ns they were called, were ostracized from Jewish society and their “tainted money” was proudly rejected by priest and people. “Levi the son of Alpheus” belonged to this class: his other name is Matthew, which means the same as Theodore, the gift of God, or given to God. He assumed this name after he joined the society of Jesus. "Follow me.” The same words were addressed to the four fishermen, and he, like them, followed him and joined the ranks of disclpleshlp. It •was not an act of.impulse. Matthew had not only heard Jesus preflCh, but had doubtless been interviewed, and Jesus saw in ,hlm a fit iperaber of his hand. Verses 15-17.—A companion of all, Matthew burned his bridges behind him when he heeded the call of Jesus. He could not go back to "his former business, ns (he fishermen might hnvje done; in ease of necessity. But he palp (he full mice of disclpleshlp and at once entered upon his new duties ns a fisher of men. "Jesus sat at meat In his house.” This was a banquet given by Matthew in honor of Jesus, to which he also invited his former companions and associates. “Shiners." They!were probably so, ( branded because they di,d not, practice ,(he official piety of the Pharisees (Sbvvte).. “There were many, and they followed him.” Many who were dlsloyal'tolnstitutional religion, us represented by the scribes aud Phar Our Story On Time at Last By RALPH N. GROVER A slight, girlish form enveloped In a long, loose evening coat restlessly pac ed the broad veranda of Greymere Inn. Grace O’Rourke was lovely at all times, but tonight her Irish blue eyes flashed on unusual brilliancy, which made her positively irresistible. “Better Join us,” called Elizabeth Dwyer as the latter left the porch es corted by a lithe youth. It was the night of the annual ball given to the guests. Grace hesitated for a moment. “Oh, Julian will be along soon, Eliza beth,” she cried. “He’s late, as usual, but we’ll meet you at the dance later.” Other couples followed the first, hut still Grace O’Rourke, the belle of Grey mere inn, paced the veranda. Finally a man’s voice greeted her. “I say, Miss O’Rourke,” ho suggest ed. “let me cut out that tardy Haw thorne, won’t you? Come along to the dance with me?” Again Grace hesitated. Down in the farthest comer of her heart she really and truly cared for Julian Hawthorne, but ho was never on time for any ap pointment, and here was a choice op portunity to teach him a bitter lesson. Then, too, George T'hl was a splendid dancer. Impulsively she accepted his offer, and half an hour later found them in the midst of the summer crowd dancing and apparently oblivi ous of all else on earth. The ball was at its height when Ju lian Hawthorne entered the room. In the doorway lie leaned against the sill as if physically tired, and the lids hung heavily over his black eyes. As George and Grace passed him lost in the ecstasy of a dreamy waltz his gaze followed the two closely, and a satirical smile spread over his face. When the dance was over Hawthorne slowly crossed the room. “May I have the next dance, Grace?” he asked, without seeming to notice Uhl, who stood by her side. “Do you think you could be on time to claim it?” parried Grace, with sting ing sarcasm. T am here now, waiting,” Haw thorne answered as he extended his left arm. If men but knew the power they have over women who truly love them! isees. were deeply interested In the teaching of Jesus, with His large and humane views of life, and they were eager lo learn from him (he way of life. “They said unto his disciples.” Jesus had read their thoughts in con nection with the cure of the paralytic In a way that made these Pharisees and scribes hesitate to meet him open ly in argument. Their question was a veiled criticism of his methods, and Jesus n( once answered it. “Xo need of the physician.” In quoting this popular proverb Jesus practically announced himself as a spiritual physician whose business was not with "they that are whole,” at, least In their own estimation, like the Pharisees, but with “they that are sick.” like the sinners who were fol lowing him. Matthew here adds a quo tation from Hos. vl, 6. Sin is here re garded as a disease. Compare Isa. 1,5; liii, 5. Jesus then definitely declared that he “came to call” the sin sick "to repentence” and healing. Verses 18-22.—A conference on duty. The feast In the home of Matthew was doubtless the occasion for a dis- i mission on the subject of fasting. The law required that fasting should be j practiced once a year, on the day of atonement (Lev. xvi, 29-34), but an ex cess of zeal induced the Pharisees to practice it twice every week. Compare Luke xviil, 12. “The disciples of John” were also scrupulous In the mat ter of fasting, In harmony with the stern and ascetic spirit of their teach er. "Thy disciples fast not.” It was urged ns an objection that Jesus did not inculcate this religious practice. "Children of the bride chamber.” These were the companions ,of the bridegroom who assisted him in bring ing tho bride to his bouse. It was a time of joyous festivity and not of sorrowful fasting. “The days will come.” As there Is a limit to nuptial rejoicing, so also will It be when he “shall he taken away” ffiom his dis ciples by death. A different course of life will then be followed by them when there will be room for fasting. "New cloth” that has noilbeen fulled, soaked In water, will shrink. If it Is sawed to “an old garmentV; anew and worse rent will be made. ‘ibid bottles” —"wine skins.” Their leather has be come hardened. If “new Vine” that has not yet fermented Is pbured Into them it will burst the skins. Tho new spirit of his teaching and life must bo expressed in forms that are appropri ate to it. else there will fed Inconsist ency and incongruity. .JesUs always recognized the fitness of things. In using these expressive ho did not mean to Imply fh%t tho old ways of thought and life were to be set aside simply because they were old. He reverenced tho past and knew that the present could not have been with out the past. What he meant was that the spirit of bondage to ceremonial Inns and regulations can never bo In harmony with the spirit of love, which works ns an Inspiration and does nos make bargains. The Pharisees repre sented the servant In the family, while Jesus represented tho son who loves and enjoys the homo. • I There was something within Grace O’Rourke that night which told her to reject the arm he extended, but that greater something—love -made her ac cept It. In another moment they were whirling round and round the room. The night was warm, and when the dance was half over they walked out of the ballroom. “I want to tell you why I was late tonight, Grace,” Hawthorne began. “But I don’t want to hear,” Inter rupted Grace. “It’s always some ex cuse, Julian, and I’m tired of It all. If It's not the of lice it’s the train, and If it's not the train it's something else." “Well, then, will you ltd me tell you something else—something that you’ve never heard before, at least not from me?” he added. “Oh, all right,” agreed Grace, “only make It a short story, for I’ve prom ised the next twostep to George.’’ “It won’t take long to tell you, dear." Hawthorne’s voice seemed very near, and he spoke slowly and with great! earnestness. “I just want to try to tell you how much I love you, Grace, how long 1 have loved you and that at last I am In a position to ask you to be my wife.” “As usual, my dear Julian, you arei too late,” announced Grace, with as sumed nonchalance. “I’ve just prom ised to marry someone else.” Hawthorne lighted n cigarette and said nothing. If Grace expected a tirade about the fickleness of women she was disappointed. Hawthorne was the type of man to take defeat graco-i fully, but he did not fall to note the( unsteadiness of Grace’s step ns they] returned to the house nor the trem-i bling notes in her voice when shot spoke. He loved her well enough to tnowi her through and through.
