IN JESUS' time, as until re
cently in our own, the Jews had
no country of their own. They
had returned to their homeland
from exile, it is true, but they
were ruled by Roman emperors,
their dominion having been estab
lUhed by Pompey the Great in
63 B. C.
The country was divided, part
under the sons of Herod the
Great, Philip and Antipas, both
regions being ruled as tetrarchies
under minor governors. Judaea,
Samaria and the land south of
Judaea were more directly under
the Roman procurator, Pontius
The Jews were looking for a
Messiah, one who would lead
them to victory over their ene
mies anJ re-establish the king
dom. This was their great hope
In the time of Jesua. Now, it
seems that their dream may be
realized. In the struggle now go
ing on they lupe to gain a land
of their own, there to live as an
independent, sovereign nation.
Our lesson deals not with this
eaithly country for which the
people of Palestine so longed, but
sat on one side, and the veiled
women on the other.
The Ark, of painted wood, gen
erally covered with a curtain
and containing the Pentateuch
and scrolls of the prophets, was
the most sacred object. On on
side was the bema or pulpit for
the reader and preacher, and
there were chief seats for the
synagogue's ruler and the elders.
It was customary to read the
scriptures standing. After some
one had read the first lesson,
which was from the Pentateuck
the clerk would hand the roll t
parchment containing the book
of the prophets which was the
second lesaon, to someone, and in
this case he gave it to Jesus. We
do not know whether what Jesus
read was the lesson for the day
or whether He chose it especially.
What Christ read to these, peo
ple who had known Him from
childhood, was:
"The spirit of the Lord Is upon
Me, because He hath anointed Ma
to preach the gospel to the poor;
He hath sent Me to heal the bro
kenhearted, to preach deliverance
to the captives, and recovering of
sight to the blind, to set at lib-
"Yea rather, blessed are they that hear the word of Cod and
keep it." Luke 11:28.
Lightning produces tiro mil
lion tons of nitric acid bom the
air per day, .
for the kingdom of God. which
was Jesus' message to His people.
To illustrate what He meant
by the kingdom of God, Jesus
told the following parable while
preaching by the Sea of Galilee:
The kingdom of God is as if a
man should cast seed into the
ground, and should sleep night
and day, and the seed should
spring. and grow up without his
paying much attention to it.
Growing in the earth, first the
blade would come up, then the
oar, and finally the "full corn In
the ear." Then the man would
reap because the harvest was
come. So In men's hearts, first
the message is sown by the
teacher; where it grows without
his knowledge, until it attains full
growth, and the man realizes that
he has the kingdom of God with
in him.
Some time before this Jesus
had made a visit to His native
town, Nazareth. As He always
did, Jesus went on the Sabbath
into the synagogue, and stood up
to read. The synagogues which
had been set up since the Jews
returned from exile In Babylon
were rooms one end of which
fcd toward Jerusalem. The men
erty them that are bruised. To
preach the acceptable year of the
Jesus then closed the book,
handed it back to the clerk, and
sat down and began to talk. The
eyts of all In the synagogue were
upon Him, and all marveled at
the gracious words that came
from His lips. "Is not this Jo
seph's son?" they asked one an
other. What did Jesus believe was the
kingdom of God ? When asked by
the Pharisees when It would come,
He answered, "The kingdom of
God cometh not with observa
tion r Neither shall they xay, Lo
here! or, lo, there! for, behold,
the kingdom of God is within
Into our hearts it comes, into
all men's hearts, before the king
dom is established. When men
cease being cruel, selfish, grasp
ing; when they do unto others as
they would be done by, then shall
the kingdom coine. It Is not
an earthly thing, for, as Faul
wrote to the Romans: "For the
kingdom of God la not meat and
drink; but righteousnesj, and
peace, and Joy in the Holy Ghost."

We are so busy. Everybody 1
meet is busy. Hut are we busy
about the right things'.' That is
what ought to concern us. Repeat
edly I've written in this column
that too many of us mistake mo
tion for progress, 'loo many of us
are busy about the wrong thing.
There is an inteiesting story
buried back in the Old Testament,
which tells about the selection of
Saul as the first kinu ol Israel.
After he had been chosen, they
couldn't find him. A diliHeni search
was made for the new king and
the record says quiii.i'V' that they
finally found him al'i-r the Prophet
Samuel had prayed to Clod. The
Bible verse reads. " I'lie. el'ore th y
inquired of the Lord luriln r. if (he
man should yet come thither. And
tile Lord answered, Ucho'd he hath
hid himself among the stuff." il
Sam. 10:22).
How many of us have hidden our
selves "among the stuff".? We are
literally covered up with "stuff."
which we have gathered up and
piled around us. Stud! What gath
erers we are. llow covered up we
are with it. It all seems so import
ant now, but in the light of etern
ity it will amount to nothing. We
, may have this "stuff" piled up In
an office, in a business. We may
even have it in a home. It takes
tremendous effort to accumulate it,
and more effort to care for it.
Many of us read last Christmas
Charles Dickens' "The Christmas
Carol." Do you remember the con-
Distributed by Kiur Feauis 6yadicU, Inc.
versation between Scrooge and
Marley's ghost? Scrooge tells Mar
ley that he had been a good man
of business. Marley cries aloud,
shakes his chain, and says, "Busi
ness! Mankind was my business."
Frequently I hear someone say
that he is not too much concerned
about Judgment Day, that a God
of Love would not condemn a man
for his sins. Almighty God does
not condemn us. We condemn our
selves when we hide ourselves in
"stuff." busy ourselves about the
wrong things, fail to follow His
Plan for salvation, fail to put Him
first. The Bible tells us emphatic
ally that God desires "all men to
be saved and to come unto the
knowledge of the truth." Christ
said. "Blessed are they that hear
the Word of God and keep it."
A correspondent sent nie these
lines inscribed on a tablet in Hie
Cathedral of Lubeck: "Thus speak
eth Christ bur Lord to Us: Ye call
me Master, and obey me not: Ye
call me Light .and see me not; Ye
call me Way, and walk me not; Ye
cal me Wise, and follow me not;
Ye call me Fair, and love me not;
Ye call me Rich, and ask me not;
Ye call nie Eternal, and seek nie
not; Ye call me Gracious, and trust
me not; Ye call me Noble, and
serve me not; Ye call me Mighty,
and honor me not; Ye cal! me Just,
and fear me not; If I condemn you.
blame me not."
