i Six years after the death of Jesus
we find his church still in Jerusalem.
,The great commission to preach to
all nations had yet to be carried out.
( No flaming missionary zeal had yet
taken possession of the thousands of
those who believed in "the way."
Suddenly, all this was altered.
ng these early years the new

' In fact, the apostles and con
iverts were all Jews and continued in
xheir allegiance to the Temple. The
new aith was regarded friendly by
ithe raeonle and even numbtred some
!priests in its ranks, but it was
strictly a Jewish institution.
I Within the early church were two
groups of Jews. There were the
Hebrews proper, inhabitants of Pal
estine, traditionally keeping the ex
islusiveness of their race. Another
jfiroup of Jews, however, were refer-
to as "lirecians, ' tnat is, uiey

opolitan, broader and readier to
ngle with other races.
The disturbance came from the
recian Jews. First, they murmured

irst of these mentioned was Stephen,
Vho, not content to serve, preached
vith unusual vigor and earnestness,
esulting in the utter discomfiture
yffkhe orthodox Jews who sought to
trjrue the cause with him.
Stephen was hailed before the
Banhedrin, charged with blasphemy,
rhe adherents of the ancient faith,
In the same narrow view which led
lo the death of Jesus, accused Ste
phen, and brought him to trial.
I Stejjfien thus became the first
Christian martyr, and marked the
leginning of a determined persecu
tion of the believers in Jerusalem,
Vhich caused them to flee to various

SajfcsVwere eventually found every

Vas a man by the name of Philip.
,'hilip went to Samaria and our les-
son today tells us about the mis
sionary labors of this , deacon.
The Jews had no dealings with the
Samaritans. The latter were a mix
ed race. When Assyria captured
the northern kingdom many of the
leading Jews were carried away as
prisoners while a number of Assyr
ians settled with the remnant, and
their descendants were the Samari
tans of Philip's day. The Samari
tans accepted the Pentateuch only of

me neurew scriptures ana in Mt.
Gerizin they had a. rival locality with
Jerusalem for the place of worship,
To this despised country Philip
went and his work was blessed with
great gooa. fhilip's convincing
speech was reinforced by miraclen of
healing which produced the natural
effect and many Samaritans accept
ed the teachings about Jesus. When
the news of these events in Sa
roaria reached Jerusalem, the faith
ful there were surprised and some
what skeptical, so they sent Petei
and John to investigate their report
These two apostles found the situa
tion entirely satisfactory, and while
there Peter was instrumental in
bringing the gift of the Holy Spirit
to the new believers.
Philip was next called upon to
leave Samaria and go south of Jeru
salem to a certain road, which he did
without question. Notwithstanding
the work he was engaged in Philip
did not hesitate to follow the spirit
ual promptings. This required faith
but it is possible for every believer.
As J. H. Juwett says: "If I, too,
would have the constant guidance of
the Spirit, three things are needful:
(1) I must keep sensitive toward
God. To this end I must pray and
praise without ceasing. (2) I must
listen for His voice: His voice is
always the 'upward calling.' I must
harken to my conscience, and to the
quiet whispering in my soul. (3) I
must obey the voice. Every time I
obey I improve my organ of hearing,
and the Spirit can tell me deeper
On the Gaza road Philip met a
high official of Candace, Queen of
Ethiopia, who was evidently a con
vert to Judaism and was returning
from some observance at Jerusalem.
He was reading from the Prophet
Isaiah, probably using the Septaugint
version, which had been translated at
Alexandria. Philip went to him and
from his more thorough knowledge of
the scriptures interpreted the same
to him whereupon the official re
quested baptism, which Philip ac
We do not hear much more about
Philip. After this experience we are
told that he preached in other cities
until he reached Caesarea. There,
twenty years later, Luke and Paul
visited him and we are told that his
four daughters were prophetesses.

See Better Prices
The 50 percent increase in pro
duction of tomatoes for canning to
meet a larger domestic and Allied
demand should bring growers a boost
of from $2.75 to $3 a ton over 1940
contract prices, says H. R. Nis
wonger, extension horticulturist of
N. C. State College.
"On this basis, the average price
to growers as a whole would be
$14.50 to $14.75 a ton, the highest
since 1930," he continued. "In mak
ing this estimate, the. U. S. Bureau
of Agricultural Economics used as a
basis the relationship of prices paid
and the acreage planted for the
years 1933-40, inclusive, with an ad
ditional allowance for expected
changes in production costs in some
areas during 1941.
"Naturally," Niswonger went on,
"there will be considerable variation
among the states. In the past, prices
have varied as much as $4 to $5 a
ton. But now all tomato erowers
have their best opportunity in years,

It takes a neighbor to help a neigh

dreds of miles away to understand
your problems and the conditions un
der which you have to farm.
This holds good in buying fertiliz

you. And you're right.
