General lesson title Zacharias and Elisabeth life in a pious jewish Home. Lesson material Luke 1. 5-80. Golden text and they were both righteous before god walking in All the commandments and ordinances of the lord 1. 6. Representative characters Luke s gospel. The gospel according to Luke is one of the most perfect in finish one of the most Beautiful books Ever written. It is a satisfying supplement to Matthew and Mark. Luke doubtless was aware of these and of other gospel stories and intended his writing to be a unique and needed treatment of certain vital events not displacing the other gospels. For in his preface Luke states a for Smuch As Many have taken in hand to draw up a narrative concerning those matters. It seemed Good to me also having traced the course of All things accurately from the first to Luke certainly could write he was a Well educated Man and an artist at heart. He wrote easily a polished and attractive style. This gospel appealed especially to the greek speaking reflective artistic portion of the Greco roman world of that Day. The artist historian. Luke had valuable material to add to the Story and he brought to his task a literary taste and a historical insight and skill not possessed by Matthew and Mark. Johns gospel wins written much later Luke who was the Friend and ofttimes travelling companion of Paul gives us a clearer narrative and writes like a trained historian. For instance the a Sermon on the mount a put by Matthew in a Block of material Luke distributes in connection with the appropriate narrative. Luke wrote for the larger Gentile audience and had a characteristic style. A the put the vivacity and joyousness of the greek nature into his narratives and Drew Fine pictures of personalities and events. He Wras not Only an editor of material but a gifted composer. Luke a is the most cosmopolitan of the synoptic gospels and was the most successful Christian Appeal to the great roman and greek world. Until the writing of John. It is interesting to note that Luke was fond of portraying Domestic scenes and included Many women among his characters. He tended to heighten impressions and effects presenting grander and More marvelous situations testimonies and results in the career of Jesus. There is a Strong religious interest throughout Luke prayer and Praise in particular Are the jewish Home. In spite of Luke a fondness for Domestic scenes we must admit that the details of Home life in connection with the account of Zacharias and Elisabeth and Mary in the first chapter Are quite meager. There Are intimations however which enable us to build up the picture of Homes of affection and piety. The Homes of Zacharias and of Joseph no doubt kept alive the Best traditions and ideals of the Long hebrew history. In spite of woman a subordinate Legal status the position of the Mother in the hebrew family was always very High. Numerous references might be made especially from exodus Leviticus Deuteronomy proverbs and psalms Ruth and Many prophetic passages to indicate the place of woman in the family life and the Honor accorded her by husband and children. In proverbs a the family is regarded As a school and its life As a discipline. It is to be noted that the Mother is always recon of sized As standing with the father in the place lesson i. October 5 of authority and As worthy of respect and the times of Jesus. Jesus and John were born in a tumultuous world. There were strife and hatred poverty and suffering grief and bewilderment and the tragedy of Hopes deferred. There was a sense of impending crisis no one knew what the future would bring. Various classes and types of persons took varying attitudes. The righteous party of pharisees were punctilious in their exact Observance of the requirements of the Law. They had Little to do with the common people and tended to despise those that did not do As they did in religious Observance. Political opportunities were to be found among the Sadd Cees. Revolutionists weary of waiting for the kingdom to appear called themselves zealots. They fomented trouble against Rome and were the occasion of Many insurrections. The mass of the people were As sheep not having a Shepherd. For the most part they drifted Content to Admire from a distance the righteousness of the scribes the religion of the people was an easy going affair. They expected that the lord would inaugurate miraculously the new age. There was Little Hope for the kingdom Here. The saving remnant. In the midst of these diverse classes and largely ignored by rally Day is fast becoming a whole Church rally Day when All the organizations strive to rally their members from the More or less inactive habits of the vacation period to a Good Start on a new year of Effort. With the opening of school and the swinging into a set schedule of work during the week this makes an Ideal time for Epworth leagues to a rally a and we Are ready to rally if we have done the preliminary work necessary. No rally Day will just come of itself. It is like Christmas Joys in that preparation must be made or they fall Short. The month of september has been admirably suited to this preparation As far As the topics outlined Are concerned. Two topics on planning what to do have Given ample Opportunity to take Stock of our needs and to plan together our objectives for the year. It always helps to have a definite objective in fact it is essential if we Are really to accomplish what we ought to. We have also had two topics on the christians a who is a Christian a and a How can i know that i am a Christian a what a heart searching and what an Opportunity to clarify our own perhaps hazy ideas on the matter of being a Christian. If we Are to practice Christian living we must be Able to Tell when we Are Christian and when we Are not. Here is an Opportunity for Frank discussion. If we have used these four helps we will have made ourselves ready for rally Day by having definite plans in mind and a Clear idea of what we Are working to become. It is one thing to be ready ourselves and quite another to reach out to get the crowd we want to reach. But this individual preparation is a first prerequisite As they would 6ay in school and without it we cannot Hope to rally our league with any advantage All of them were the Bumble few pious and Alert and devoted. This a a class had no name nor organization. They had no influence on the obvious events of their Day. Nevertheless in every age salvation has come from the group marked by humility and piety. It was so in the Days of the reformation. It was so when methodism revived religion in England. For Martin Luther and John Wesley came from such a modest people. Zacharias and Elisabeth with their simple Earnest Faith make us realize what makes not Only a Home but a nation Christian. They with Joseph and Mary and others like them made up the saving remnant. It was out of the Circle of these people that Jesus came. This wholesome social and religious life a is met in the godly priest Zacharias and his wife Elisabeth in the Nazareth family Joseph and Mary in old Simon and Anna freq enters of the Temple in the sturdy fishermen Andrew and Peter and the sons of Zebedee in Nathanael of Cana and his Friend Philip in Lazarus and his Sisters in the Good Aquila and Priscilla in Lois and Eunice and Timothy their child. A the religion of the prophets the Faith of the psalmist the longing for the kingdom of god As a reign of righteousness and love had not ceased in Israel. There were Many very Many who shared the experience of the great religious leaders of their race and endeavoured to do justly to love kindness and to walk Humble with their % group courses primary the Friendly teacher. Junior Abram the Pioneer. Intermediate choosing god s Side. Senior what shall be our attitude toward authority either to the organization or to those who come. There is one very Good lesson we learn from athletics and that is to play the game. It applies just As Well to religious Effort. If we must sit on the Side lines we Are just observers not at All responsible for the game except that our cheers help those who play. Are we going to sit on the sidelines in the league let the others put up a line of activities that interest us without our Effort and then leave whenever we choose or do we believe enough in what the league stands for and is doing to get into the game ourselves and give it our Best to play the game hard a Cross the line and make a Point if we have been of the opinion that being a Christian and an Epworth leaguer in this = Day is an insipid thing fit Only for weaklings and those who Are a Little bit old let us be disillusioned. Christianity is a Way of life that is so vital so alive that Jesus characterized it As a the abundant we All want an abundant life. Everyone tries to find it. They follow Many paths. Many find a Blind Street leading to nowhere and must retrace their Steps and begin again. Jesus was one of the keenest adventurers in living that the world has Ever known. He found life abounding in meaning and in interest. Those who have never tried his Way cannot know what it holds How much courage it takes the Joy it brings and the sacrificial giving it requires. Yet he found it most abundant. It seems a veritable , and yet it works. If we As leagues launch out on the Way of Jesus and find it All he said it was life abundant and if through our discoveries others also try it wre shall have not Only a rally Day but a a rally year in the league.
