LESSON TEXT: Luke 2.1:1,-6, IS,
.1.1, .ii, -ill-l i.
Kvents moved rapidly after Jesus
and the eleven disciples came down
from the Upper Room after the
lxrds' Supper. There was the trip
In Mount Olivet for waver. The
Aironv of Jesus in the Garden of
Gethscmane was followed by his be
traval bv Judas, and his arrest by
the soldiers, who bound him and
took him into the city for trial.
Upon the arrest of Jesus, his dis
ciples abandoned him, and only Pe
ter followed him at a distance, as
they carried him off. John soon
came back and, knowing the High
Priest, was admitted into the house.
Then he secured admittance for Pe
ter, who, in his anxiety to be near
Jesus', pave way to weakness and
denied three times his acquaintance
with him. As Jesus looked re
proachfully at him, Peter broke
down and fled weeping. He was
later forgiven by Jesus and restored
to favor and leadership, becoming the
great leader of the Apostles.
Jesus had three trials by the Jew
ish authorities. He was first car
ried before Annas, recognized by the
Jews as the lawful High Priest, al
though he had been removed by the
Romans. Later in the night, Jesus
was carried before Caiaphas, and a
few members of the Sanhedrin, who
had been hastily summoned. Soon
after sunrise, on the following
morning, he was again placed be
fore a larger gathering of the San
hedrin, constituting a quorum. By

M' axecute criminals, it was neces-
a.ra-. Kof i-Vio no-pa ha preferred
against Jesus before the Roman au
thorities, who alone could have him
executed. Early Friday morning,
Jesus was carried before Pilate, the
Roman Governor of Judea, a man
pictured to us by those who knew
him as cruel, selfish and corjupt.
Aa Pilate would not be interested
in, any ecclesiastical accusation, the
Jews changed their charges against
Jesus. They told Pilate that Jesus
had pretended to be king, and had
advised against the payment of tax
as to Rome. Even Pilate realized
that this was a subterfuge, because
auch a position would have provoked
the approval of the Jews. Pilate
had no desire to dispose of such a
problem, so quite conveniently he re
called that Herod Antipas, the Gov
ernor of Galilee, was, like himself, a
visitor to Jerusalem for the Pass
over. Therefore, Pilate told the Jews to
arry Jesus before Herod. Thus, Je
aus came face to face with the mur
derer of John the Baptist, who him
self was curious to see this prophet
of whom so many had spoken. Je
sus refused to answer no question
put to him by Herod, and also per
formed no miracle, to Herod's cha
grin. Herod thereupon had him ar
rayed in a fine robe and mocked.
Jesus was then carried back to Pi
late, who knew the dispute was over
spiritual matters and felt that Jesus
was innocent of wrongdoing. He
had been warned by his wife's
dream to have nothing to do with
sentencing this innocent man, and
he wished to set Jesus free, but wag
without the courage to do so. He
tried various expedients to accom- J
-nliv liia nnrnose. He had Jesus I
f u r
scourged and presented to his ac
cusers a suffering and bleeding spec
tacle, but1, it brought no pity Re
membering a custom to free pris
oner . daring the Passover festival,
Pilate hoped that this would afford
him a loophole, Jbut the enemies of
Jesus Insisted that an insurractioa-

Two thieves were crucified along
with Jesus. One reviled him for not
rescuing them from their fate, but
the other recognized the goodness of
Jesus and rebuked his companion,
calling attention to the fact that
they deserved their fate, while Jesus
was innocent This thief asked Je
sus to remember him in his kingdom
and Jesus promised him that he would
be with him in Paradise. No one
reading the gospel account of this
solemn scene can fail to be moved
by a conviction of its sincerity.
Jesus spoke seven times while
hanging on the cross. First, it was
a plea for forgiveness for his mur
derers. Then, his promise to the
supplicant robber. Third, he com
mended his mother to John. Fourth,
he asked God why he had been for
saken. Fifth was an expression of
agony and thirst. Sixth, a word of
success that his mission had been
accomplished, and last, a solemn
commitment of his spirit into tne
hands of his Father. His body was
removed from the cross by two
friends, Nicodemus and Joseph of
Artmathea, and placed in the new
ly-hewn tomb, wheie it remained un
til his resurrection on the first day
of the week.

When conquering sin, death and dy

The angel said, "He is risen,"
Banishing death with its gloom.
There must have been little bird3

When the Marys met with the angel
At the door of the empty tomb.
I've just read the wonderful story
I think Jesus knows that I care,

My subject this week is STOPS'.
MY object is TO ASK YOU TO
PLEASE, PRETTY PLEASE,
HELP ME. After tomorrow, Tues
day, when T go over to the Beech
Glen, Paint Fork, Buckner' area, I
can say that all of the original Mon
day and Friday runs have been prop
erly changed to another day. Now
that I plan to travel three days ev
ery week, and stay in the library in
Marshall every Monday and Fri
day, I have two more days to fill
with new stops.
It seems to me that I have sort
of neglected the following areas
lot intentionally, you understand
ut because I lacked time and know
edge when I went around and set
ip my bookmobile route in August
Sector's Corner, Panhandle, Walnu
Hreek and Ivy. Now, with me ad
ded time and a little more iknowledgi
of what's what and where's where
I hope to make up for my earlj
Little Pine, Big Pine, Barnard and
Walnut are all such good sections,
in order to do thein justice, V am
?x)ing to have to put them on differ
ent days. There will be no change
next time, but when I come around
on Wednesday, March 28, I'll tell
you all about it.
My young friend, Ray Davis has
just dropped into the library, and he
promises to help me out with the
Rector's Corner route. Haven't seen
another friend of mine, David Con
ner, lately, but I think he will help
me with the Panhandle trip. That
leaves Walnut Creek and Ivy sec
tions. Without help it is a hard jab to
pick the right places. The bookmo
bile and I talk it over something
like this: "Bookie," sez I, "Do you
think that house looks as if it likes
to read? The folks that live in it,
I mean." "Peggy," sez the bookmo
bile (we call each other by our first
names the bookmobile and I), "use
your head. That may suit you, but
not me. I am sensitive. 1 have to
have a good place to get well off the
road. I just can't stand it when
folks come along and toot at me, and
scowl and look put out." So you see
my problem to be solved is this
