Gardens Of The Bible
BY REV. C. HERMAN TRUEBLOOD
TEXT: "Now in the place where he was crucified there was. a
garden." John 19:41.
Gardens, that is some of them, are interesting places; they have
played a large place in human life. The very word, garden, is musical and
fascinating - suggesting to us ,cool retreats, blooming flowers, or growing
vegetables, singing birds, golden
growing plants, and summer showers to freshen and give me 10 pianiea
seed and garden vegetation.
Garden stories of the Bible are of great interest, too. The Bible
reveals that some of the most important things of life .occurred in gardens.
Three most wonderful events, pivotal events of the world's history took
place in gardens - observe:
1. THE GARDEN OF BEGINNINGS. According to the Bible story,
man started on his long career in a garden, the garden of Eden. "And
God said let us make man in our image, after our likeness - and the
Lord God took the man, and put him into the garden of Eden to dress
it and keep it." Gen. 1:26; 2:15. So a garden became the first home of
man: and home is. the first divine institution, the unit of civilization. It
was in a garden, man was first employed; his job was to "dress and keepJ
the garden." Work, doing something worthwhile, is one of our greatest
blessings, or opportunities. "If any -would not work neither should he
eat" 2nd Thes. 3:10. Not only did the beginning of man, and the beginning
of home take place in a garden, but the first sin of man was committted
in this same garden. It was the sin of disobedience; Adam and Eve ate
fruit from "The tree which was in the midst of the garden," Read the
story .(Gen. 3:1-6). God's first promise to man occurred also in the same
garden. "And I will put enmity between thee (Satan, The Serpent) and
the woman (Eve), and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy
head, and thou shalt bruise his heel." Here we have the fall of man,
and the promise of a redeemer.
2. THE GARDEN OF AGNONIZDJG PRAYER. We call it the Garden
of Gethsemane. "The cometh Jesus with them unto a place called Gethse
mane, and saith unto the disciples, Sit ye here, while I go and pray
yonder." Matt 26:36. This was the time and the place where the Son of
God agonized, with the burden of a lost world upon his soul, it was tne
garden of absolute and complete submission to the "way of the Cross;"
said He: "Not my will, but thine, be done." Luke 22:42. From this garden,
followed the betrayal, mock trial, and crucifixion.
3. THE GARDEN OF DEATH'S DEFEAT. This is the garden of The
Resurrection, the garden wherein Christ "became the first fruits of them
that slept," blunted the "sting of death," and illuminated the dark cold
grave with the bright star of hope - the hope, aye the assurance of
"everlasting life - through faith in Christ." "Now in the place. where he
was crucified there was a garden; and in the garden a new sepulchre,
wherein never was man laid - there laid they Jesus." John 19:41-42. But,
glorious factl Jesus did not stay in the grave; for He was more than
human; He is divine, and empowered to destroy death, vanquish the
grave, and "bring life and immortality to light." 2nd Tim. 1:10.

Our Living Lord
Lesson for April 18, 1954
TO SPEAK about Jesus as if he
were simply .a historical char
acter is a mistake, said William
Adams Brown. When other men die,
their obituaries can be written.;
There is nothing to add to the tale
of their life. Even in the case of
the great and famous men about
whom new books appear every so
often, each biographer merely
edits newly discovered material at
the most. If he adds .chapter to
other biographies, it is simply the
record of a chapter hitherto un
known but it adds nothing new to
the facts, only to
of the facts. With
Jesus, as Dr.
Brown points out,
the case is alto
You could not write
a "definitive," a ' I I
lastword, biogra-'l J I I
nhv about him I i ,AJ
even today, be- Dr. Foreman
cause he still lives and is active
In the world. Jesus is not someone
who was; that is not the whoje
truth. Jesus is. The message of
Easter is not only that Jesus did
not die forever; it is more that he
lives forever, that he lives now.'
In the Church
The Church is called in the New
Testament the "body of Christ."
In a very real way, that is true.
One contemporary theologian has
put this in a startling way. He says
that Christ and the church are the
complete Christ, just as a man and
his body together are the com
plete man. This may be putting it
too strongly. But no thoughtful
Christian will deny that without
the church, without some church,
Christ would be bodiless in this
earth. Without the church he would
be a "houseless wraith of deity,"
but with the church he has eyes.
h ears, hands and feet. This is not
to say that any church is perfect;
in the best of churches Christ
walks lame and speaks in a mur
mur often hard to understand. Just
as any musician would be hamp
ered by a broken arm, so Christ is
hampered by broken and self-seeking
churches. Yet taking it all in
all, Christ does live and speak and
work through his church today.
He is there in the- sacraments,
there in the message of truth and
grace, there in. the life and serv
ice of every church that ministers
to men in his name.
In Men and Women
But the church does not exist
apart from the men and women
who are its members. (We mean
real members, not just people
whose names appear on the mem
bership lists.) Christ lives again
in every individual who loves him,
is devoted to him and (to use St.
Paul's memorable words) is
"growing up in all things into
Him." When St. Paul said, "I live,
yet not I, but Christ liveth in me,"
he was saying only what countless
Christians have said because they
had discovered it was true. Chris
tians less famous than Paul have
known him in their lives. A man
who had had a great deal of trou
ble with a certain temptation was '
asked one day by his pastor how
he was getting along. "You know,"
the man replied, "I used to have
a lot of bother from the devil and
I 'didn't always get the best of
him. But now when Satan rings, I
just say, "L6rd Jesus, won't you
answer the door?' "
At the Right Hand of God
The Apostles' Creed, which
Christians in all lands know by
heart, declares that Christ "sit
teth at the right hand of God." By
this the church has never meant
that Jesus is spending eternity sit
ting down on a throne somewhere.
What, we mean is that Christ is
not only alive on this small planet
but that he lives and works with
God. Just as in ancient times when
a king held royal court, the seat"1
ori his right was reserved for his
most trusted and most active per
sonal representative, so Christ
lives on in the presence of Eternal
Power today, in . ways that the
heavenly glory hides from our
signt. We dare not guess at all
what he plans and does; but the
Church Is certain of one thing: he
is praying for his people. "He
ever liveth to make Intercession
for us." If it is a comfort to know
of the prayers of any friend, how
much more to know that the liv
ing Lord is praying for us I So on
Easter Sunday the church sings
how can She help ltT The flowers
and the. music are not to keep
alive the memory- of one who-once
upon a time rose again, but are
in honor of one who lives now,
in and above the church and the
