Lessons l'roin the Kxllo and Itetuin.
Two methods of review may be em
ployid to advantage.
1. Character Study. Assign the out
standing heroes of the quarter's les
sons to members of the class ami have
I hem to report. This assignment must
be made the week previous, e. g. Eze
kbl, the prophet of God; Daniel, tho
states-man; Ezra, the teacher of God's
2. Summary of Cont'.'iits. This Is n
good method at all times. It can ho
adapted to different rjindos. The fol
lowing Is a suggested method:
Lecson I. llct'oie Ezcklel was com
missioned as a prophet he was given
a vision of the Almighty. After that
he was given on experimental knowl
edge of Gol's word he ate the book
digested and nppropilatcd Its contents.
An experimental knowledge of God'!
word Is essential.
Lesson II. llecauso Daniel besought
the I.'ord he was able to make known
the king's dream and Interpret It. "If
any man lack wisdom, let him ask of
God (.las', 1:5).
Lesson III. While llelslni.zar and his
lords were engaged In drunken revelry
a .mysterious hand recirded Divine
Judgment. There Is n day coming
when men .shall be Judge.l. Happy Is
the man who has lied to Christ, for to
such there Is no Judgment (John .":2I).
Lesson IV. Daniel's sterling worth
brought him to the front he was ele
vated to be prime mbi'stcr of the Per
sian empire. Moved by Jealousy cer
tain wicked men plotted his downfall,
lteeniise of n llawiess record In busi
ness they trumped up a charge against
him n the ground of ht.s foreign re
ligion. Though the king executed the
foolish decree Daniel was delivered
and his aecuscrn were cast Into the den
of lions and destroyed.
Lesson V. Though Israel went Into
captivity as a chastisement of thu
Loril, In due time He recovered them.
God's covenant and Judgments nro
sure. He can move a heathen king to
freely fulfill Ills own gjod pleasures
Lesson VI. In the restoration of tlicr
people to their own land, the first thing:
necessary was the provision of a place
for the worship of God. As soon as
this work who begun, violent opposi
tion was in evidence. That which God
sets o.it to do shall bu completed,
though all hell oppose.
Lesson VII. Hamaii'n wicked plot
against the .lews was frustrated by
Esther's shrewdness and courage.
Those who plot against and hate God'.s
covenant people bhall be brought to de
struction. Lesson VIII. Through Zi'ruhbnhcl tho
people were hi ought hack and estab
lished In their own laud, but they had
goii Xar away from God. There was
now need of a religious leader. Ezra
was moved lj the Spirit .f God to lead
them back to fellowship. Ilecauso
Era (.'ought the Lord his way was
prospered. Success always conies to
tlioso who trust God.
Lesson IX. When Nehemlah heard
of tho distress of Ills brethren at .To
rusilcm, he took the matter to the
Lord In prayer. Their sorrow and dis
tress was Ids sorrow and distress. Is
any allllcted, let him pruy (.las. 5:l.'l).
Lesson X. When Nehemlah began
the rebuilding of the walls of Jeru
salem he encountered violent opposi
tion from without ami from within.
His faith In God moved him to go
straight on with the work and ho had
tho Joy of seeing the woik completed.
' Lesson XI. The method used In
bringing back the people to God was
the word of God. llccause God's word
was niado' plain to the people they
repented of their sins ahd rendered
obedience- to God.
Lesson XII. Mnluchl as an aid to
Nehemlah In effecting reforms pointed
cut the sins of the people, viz: Hiiro
Ingratitude, a corrupt priesthood,,
mixed marriages, robbing God by with
holding tithes, etc., policing to n day
of Judgment when righteous retribu
tion would be meted out to the wicked
and rewards would be given to tho
Geolnnlng tho Day. I
If n'ny man will come after Mo, let
him deny himself, and tnke up his
cross, and follow Me. Pov whosoover
will save his life shall lose It and who
soever will lo'to his life for My sake
shall llnd It.
