The prophecy of Isaiah Is the grand center of the Old Testa ment It pictures the Servant of Je hovah. with great wisdom, gloriously . executing the divine purpose of re demption, at the cost of great suffer ing. Lesson 2. Before he was born, Jere miah was ordained by God as a proph et to the nations. He so really took to heart the doom which awaited his people that he wept sorely. Lesson 3. Jeremiah stood in the gate of the temple In order that the multitudes might hear him. He told the people that God required them to amend their ways, solemnly warning them of impending Judgments. Lesson 4. While Belshazzar and his lords were engaged In drunken revel ry, the mysterious hand recorded the divine Judgment There is a coming day of Judgment. Lesson 5. Because of Judah's apos tasy. God permitted the Babylonians to destroy Jerusalem and take the Jews Into captivity. Lesson 6. Ezekiel sets forth person al responsibility.

On hearing of the dis tress of his brethren in Jerusalem. Nehemiah took the matter to the Lord In prayer. The Lord gave him favor with the king, permitting him to go "back to build tne walls of Jerusalem, bearing credentials of authority from the king. Lesson 11. The method used fn bringing the people back to God was the reading of the Word of God to them. Because the Word was made plain to the people, they repented of their sins. Lesson 12. MalachJ. as an aid to Nehemiah In effecting reforms, point ed out the sins of the people. He set forth a day of Judgment when right eous retribution would he meted out to the wieMjpd, and rewards given to the faithful. We have now concluded our month5 of study in the Old Testament and wi". with the new year enter upon a study of the^jGospel of Luke. A Man O rich and various man! thou pal ace of sight and sound, carrying in the senses the morning and the night: and the unfathomable galaxy; In thy brain, the geometry of the city of God; in thy heart, the power of love and the realms of right and wrong!?
