SUM SOIIOOL LESSOU
HEBREWS EXPLAINS NEW
International Sunday School Lesson
for August 24th, 1941
. Golden Text: "Having been
made perfect, he became unto all
them that obey him the author of
eternal salvation."-HHebrews 5:9.
Lesson Text: Hebrews 9:11-22
The Scripture lesson for our study
thiaweek is taken from the letter
which was written to the Hebrew be
lievers by an unknown writer. As a
matter of fact, the Epistle to the
Hebrews is the one and only com
pletely anonymous letter of the
Bible. It has often been attributea
to Paul, but many diligent students
of the Bible do not agree with this.
Others have suggested Apolloe, or
Timothy, or Silas, or Luke, or Barna
bas or PriscHTa, as the author, but
probably the best conclusion was
drawn by Origen, who said, "The au
thor is known to God alone."
While we would like to know who
wrote Hebrews, this is not a matter
of fundamental importance. The
message of the letter is more vital.
The theme is: "The Superiority of
Christianity over Judaism." Its pur
pose was "to reveal to the Jewish
Christians of that day, and then to
all Christians of every age, the in
finite superiority of the Lord Jesus
Christ, in His person, in the work He
accomplished, in the wealth which
we have in Him now, in what the fu
ture holds for us because of Him;
and then, these things being true, to
encourage believers to hold fast to
their confession, to encourage those
to go on and on, in their high calling,
and not to turn back to those things
which could .never really save them."
(Dr. W. M. Smith).
The opening paragrapn of our
Scripture passage is really the con
clusion of an extended discussion of
the priesthood of Christ as compared
with the older high priesthood given
to Aaron and those descending from
him. Christ is spoken of as the
true high priest. Whereas the high
priest of the Mosiac system was a
man among men, albeit he had re
ceived a divine call from God, Christ
had both of these qualifications. He
was both human and divine, the Son
of man and the Son of God. Where
as the Mosiac high priest ministered
in the holy of holies once each year,
Christ is an eternal high priest that
has sat down at the right hand of
God and ministers in the true, or per
fect, sanctuary (Hebrews 8:1-2.)
And, whereas in the period of the
exodus, Israel had its tabernacle, and
later, its temple, Christ is the high
priest of the perfect tabernacle, the
heavenly tabernacle, which the Lord
Himself pitched, not made with
hands and which does not belong "to
this natural creation either in its
materials or in its maker."
Whereas, on the Day of Atone
ment, the high priest chose sacrifi
cial victims for himself and for the
people (a bullock and two goats),
Christ made the perfect sacrifice, his
own blood. Therefore, the offering
of Christ is superior. There are
three things about Christ's offering
which render it superior: (1) it was
voluntary (certainly that of the ani
mals' was not willing or voluntary);
(2) it was pure the purity of a sin
less life, not just ceremonial purity;
it was given through the eternal
Bpirit (the Holy Spirit). Our salva
tion is brought about by God the
Father, who forgives, Jesus Christ,
who atones; and the Holy Spirit, who
In the place of the old covenant
which God had made with Israel at
Sinai, which had been incorporated
into Jewish Law, God gave to man
a new covenant which was completed
when Christ shed his blood on the
cross and, thus became the mediator
between God and man. Whereas, the
priests ministering in. the, old cove
nant were sinners, needing a sacri
fice for their own Bins, Christ per
fectly obeyed the will of God, and
needed no sacrifice to be offered for
Himself. Through the shedding of
his blood, Christ satisfied God and
fulfilled the law which called for the
shedding of blood. Now, Christ, the
high priest, in the heavenly taber
nacle, stands in between the sinner
and his God and brings the two to
gether. Christians should respond to this
sacrifice of the Saviour by giving
their supreme devotion to Him. They
should willingly sacrifice their time,
their pleasure, their money, or what
ever is necessary, to live as they
know Christ would have them live.
We can show our love by being faith
ful in our responsibilities as Chris
tians, loyal to our church and Christ
like in our relations to our fellow-men.

Rules of the Road
Speed On Bridges
Section 106, Motor Vehicle Laws of
North Carolina: "It shall be unlaw
ful to drive any vehicle upon any
public bridge, causeway or viaduct at
a speed which is greater than the
maximum speed which can with safe
ty to such structure be maintained
thereon, when such structure is sign
posted as provided in this section."
The State Highway and Public
Works Commission has authority to
fix the maximum safe speed at which
vehicles may travel on any public
bridge, causeway or viaduct in the
state, and when such speeds are de
signated by means of signs, drivers
must observe them.
Robert Taylor Ca i Tell You Why Stars Slip Into Public Disfavor
who reveals in the September issue
of Cosmopolitan magazine why a
star gets the jitters. Taylor's been
through the painful experience
called in Hollywood jargon "slip
ping" so he knows what it's like.
But the reason for it? Well that's
hard to tell, says handsome Bob.
He thinks that more than any
thing else ridicule is the deadliest
weapon that can be used against
a star. Scandal, stupidity, bad per
formances cannot hurt a man in
the public eye so fatally. Holly
wood personages, he says, fear
labels more than they fear libels,
because so few of them can stand
The "Pretty Boy" stigma, given
him by some movie critics was
probably the chief reason for the
recent down hill slide Taylor took
in popularity. The public was on
the fence because they didn't know
him very well, and so when the
tide of publicity went against him,
the public went out with the tide.
Fortunately Taylor's latest pic
tures, "Escape," "Waterloo Bridge"
and "Flight Command'' have been
warmly received, and his star is
in the ascendancy again.
As Taylor points out, a star who
slips is a dead star, and a dead
star is one of the deadest things
on earth. And resurrection is still
a miracle even in Hollywood.
