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 word, ete. 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 and purpose. 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 faithful. Geolnnlng tho Day. I If n'ny man will come after Mo, let him deny himself, and tnke up his cross, and follow Me.
