Leclure By Hon L Irvin2 Handy
' Inlelledual Treal of The Ycar
I llv ing Handy last Thursday evening,
was a most masterful presentation of
the fact of the resurrection of Christ.
From beginning to end he was the
cool lawyer examining the evidence
pro and con, and then with the judg
ment of the jurist coming to an un
biased decision, lie began his lecture
by stating that the lecture was sug
gested to him as a real need, since so
many of his acquaintances expressed
themselves as rot believing the resur
rection. Launching into the discus
1 sion of his object he recognized two

propositions as calling for proof. Lie

Did He die? While Jesus was con
demned by the Jews on the charge of
blasphemy, and by the Honiara on the
charge of treason, lie was put to death

indicated that decomposition of blood,
one of the attendants of death, bad
taken place. Ini a sbnrt cross-examina
tion the lecturer disposed of the testi
mony 'of the Roman guard, who, with
the promise of a bribe, swore that the
disciples of Christ stole away I lis body
at night, while the soldiers slept,
Again, the lecturer confessed to be
much more difficult to establish. As a
the victim's side, out of
lawyer, he fourni himself obliged to
choose between three alternatives: 1st,
I either the apostles who told the story
of the resurrection., were deceived; 2nd,
they told a deliberate falsehood: or,
third, the resurrection actually occur
red. Mr. Handy considered the first
\ I alternative not worthy of serious con
sideration. because the apostles knew
Jesus well, having lived with Him on
intimate terms for three years. They
knew His features. His voice,
walk. His gestures, and could not be
walk. His gestures, and could not be
deceived. They knew whethej' they
had seen Him alive after lie w.i- taken
front the cross. So the choice must
rest between the second and third al
ternatives. To convince his hearers,
whom he addressed as the jury in the
case, that the apostles did not perpe
trate a fraud on the Roman Empire,
the lecturer spread out the lives of the
Peter. James and John the
tons of Zcbedee, Thomas the Doubter,
James, the just and Paul. They were
witnesses, who suffered
erelv fur their testimony, r.nd per
sisted in telling the story in the face
of death. Nearly 70 years after the
event John -at d< ..11 to wh o the story
of Jesus, and it was the same story of

prisonment and exile and death were
in store for them, and since their writ

representations will not hurt the repu
