With the exception of tho temper
lance lesson, all tho lessons of tho quar
jtor havo to do with tho death and res
urrection of our Lord. In tho first
"quarter wo considered Jesus no the
jrcat Teacher; in tho second, he la
presented chiefly as tho Booking
Savior; in Uio third, we observed him
is ho acted in Judgment upon Israel
uid sin; In this last, ho 1b seen In his
supremo ofllco as Savior and kins. Tho
dng of lovo, ho is also tho world's
Savior. Deny him his kingship, retuso
to becomo a subject of that kingdom
lot which ho Is tho head and wo bring
(upon oursclvos tho condemnation of a
(righteous Judgment. .This past quar
ter particularly reveals him In that
final ministry which resulted in tho
(Initiation of tho now enterprise- of pro.
(claiming his gospel, to tho end that
his kingdom shall bo established. Wo
phall consider tho lessons under fout
8tory of Love.
I. Thoie of Preparation for His Pas.
Ion. Theso embrace tho first three
lessons. (1) In the first, wo have the
beautiful story of tho lovo which
anointed him for burial, which he ac
cented and immortalized. This was
not becauso of tho greatness of tho
act, but becauso of tho appreciation of
himself and of bis words. (2) Hero
wo observe him presiding over and in
stitutlng that lasting momorlai, tho
symbolic feast, wherein tho old passes
away nnd tho now dispensation Is
ushered In. (3) In the third lesson we
viow" with nwo tho agony of tho gar
den wherein ho dedicated himself ta
tho coming suffering, "Not as I will,
but as thou wilt" absolute surrender
and delight in tho Father's will.
II. Thoso That Preceded Hie Pas
sion. Theso next fivo lessons lead us
through thoso dark shadows, yea,
through a darkness which is yet unfathomable-
and which ended in the
total darkness of Calvary. (4) In this
lesson Judas is presented, tho Incarna
tion of ovil, and tho agent of Satan,
who betrayed his Lord and "Friend"
by a kiss. Hero we see tho utter ruin
of a soul which choso private ambition
instead of fellowship with Jesus. (5)
This is a presentation of the greatest
nnd most appalling travesty of justice
tho world has ovor seen. Humanity
never descended to any lower depths,
jet ho is sercno, calm, dignified and
strong. (6) The Temperanco Lesson.
(7) This lesson considers tho heart
breaking rashness of Peter. (8) This
Is tho story of tho ignoble falluro of a
weak, vacillating, time-server.
Story of the Cross.
III. His Passion. (9) This brings
us to tho story of the cross itself, as
considered in this Boquenco of lessons.
Beforo that awe-lnsplrlng, wonder
creating ovent wo stand with bured
head. Hero sin was unmasked and did
its utmost. Her also wo behold graco
unveiled and active.
IV. The Post-Passion Lessons. Wo
aro now in a now atmosphere and
light, a now glory Is to bo seen. (10)
In this lesson wo behold tho cmply
tomb, for "Ho could not bo holden of
death." Wo slrnro with them tho glori
ous, tho Joyful consciousness that ho
whom wo havo just Been die in Ig
nominy and sbamo and suffering is
now alive and "over llveth" to bo our
advocate and over-present friend. This
is a glorious fact, that of tho literal,
bodily resurrection of Christ from
among the dead. Hallelujah! (11) In
lesson eleven this samo thought is
again emphasized and with tho sugges
tion of its accompanying obligation, in
that "wo aro witnesses of theso
In "Tarbell'8 Teachers' Guide" Is a
good suggestion for revlow Sunday,
viz., that a series of elliptical phrases
be written upon a board or chart, that
will fix tho chief Idea or servo to re
call tho lessons, as follows:
(1) Lot her alono ... (2) For
ye havo tho poor ... (3) Whero
soovor this gospol shall be preached
... (4) Verily I say unto you,
Ono . . . (C) For the Son of Man
gooth ... (6) This is my blood
... (7) Toko ye . . . (8) My
eoul is . . . (0) Father, all things
. . (10) Watch and . . . (11)
My God, my . . . (12 Why seek
ye . . . (13) Yo shall bo my . . .
Theso phrases may be written upon
cards or slips of paper and distributed
to classes or individuals, the entire
' sentence to bo recited when called for.
It would also be well to make men
tion of tho two yeare' work in tho
(Synoptic Gospels. Define what the
igospol is (I Cor. 15:1-4), what the
word synoptic moans, and wherein
, theso Gospels dlffor from tho Fourth

'chapter of the following: Tho Lord's
Prayer, tho parablo of tho good Samar
itan, tho mustard seed, the leaven,
'tho prodigal son, tho great command

tho trial of Jesus, the crucifixion, the
' resurrection, the treat commission
