International Sunday School Lesson
For (March 18 -
. , Memory Selection: - "Not what I
' will, but what thou wilt.'' Mark
'Lesson Text: Mark 14:22-26, 32-36.
We come now to the last twenty-)
four hours of the earthly life of Je
sus. Earlier, he had sent Peter and
John into Jerusalem to make arrange
ments for observing the Passover
meal the last meal he would eat with
his disciples before his crucifixion.
Jesus knew that' Judas was plotting
with his enemies, therefore, he . did
not let this disciple know in advance
where they would gather for the
evening. . ?-:..
When the disciples gathered in the
upper room of the home of the
mother of John IMark, there was
again a disgraceful dissension among
them as to who should, have the seats
of honor, which spirit Jesus rebuked
by assuming the role of a servant
and washing the disciples' feet. Gat
ing and drinking with them, he es
tablished the precedent for the Lord's
Supper, which is observed by his fol
lowers today, in memory of his life
and sacrificial death.
During the eating of the meal, Je-
8us astonished his little group of in
i timate associates by declaring that
; one of them would betray him. ; In
dismay, each inquired if St could pos
sibly be he. Apparently, to' John
alone did Jesus indicate who his be
trayer was and, shortly thereafter, in
a quiet tone, instructed Judas to pro
ceed With his nefarious plans. It
may seem strange that all of the dis
ciples inquired as to their possibility
of guilt : It reveals,, at least, that
none of them, up to this time, had
suspected the insincerity of Judas.
There are two viewpoints on Judas.
One holds, hfm up as the arch-traitor
in the world's history. ' The Rev. R.
C. Gillie explains his attitude: "No
man can live constantly with a very
good person,- who loves him, and give
in return neither sympathy nor loy
alty, without coming in-time to feel
hatred. It is impossible to go on re
ceiving love and playing the hypo
crite and remain indifferent Thus,
in the -last, year of his life,. Judas'
love for Jesus changed slowly to dis
taste and dislike, and, at last, to a
kind of hatred. Bfe T&f ; himself to
be' an almost 'ruined man. His
bubble had Iburst."
On the other hand, the New Out
look finds Judas' sin, to be more un
derstandable: ''A growing distrust
of the methods by which Jesus was
to bring in his Kingdom and a grow
ing impatience with him -for refusing
to adopt and more practical and rat
ional ideals. (We have' no reason to
think that Judas' discipleship was a
mockery from the beginning; it prob
ably had quite as much sincerity in
it as had any of the others. But he
had come to the place where "Jesus'
Way of patient goodness and endur
ing love seemed futility and fool
ishness, and he determined to try a
way of hjs own. It' doesn't look as if
- Judas' sin was such a terribly, unique
one after all; what else is any -man
guilty of when he says Jesus' gospel
of love cannot' be made to work in a
world such as ours is, and the Beauti
tudes and the Golden Rule are sen
Judas, having gone, Jesus told his
disciples that all of them would be
offended with him, whereupon Peter,
with his usual impetuously, insisted
that he -would die before he would
deny his Lord. Jesus warned him that
before daylight, he would deny him
three times, which subsequently came
to pass as Peter, alarmed by hls.om
danger, strenuously insisted ta v"i
us people, that he -dij r"t "c:r7 J:

desertion by a glance from Je3U3, ra
ter was grief-stricken. In h:3 sub
sequent life, by courageously cham
pioning the new faith, peter . proved
his fidelity and courage, of which he
boasted, eventually facing death with
out denying his Master.
Following the Last -Supper, Jesus
went out. to the .Garden, of Gethsem
ane, where he had often before gone
to pray. After a period of agonizing
braver to God. he was albie to say
"Not my will tut- thine be done."
Through prayer," he was strengthened
to face death !and to take without a
murmur all that Uy before htm. Pray
er builds reserves in the souls, of men;
it 'rives th(m Strength in facing death
and, jn facing, fte- that nothing else
can give.' Reserve power, gained in
prayer, made Christ victorious and it
may the people; who looked upward
on him on the cross, declare, " iTiuy,
this man was the son of God!" '
