of man, but of God.

Do you understand what gospel means ?
Who wrote this account of the miracles and

teaching of Jesus ? Of what nation was he ? What do you know about this man ? - Matt. 4:

21. Mark 1:19, 20. In what part of the Bible have you before seen

the word beginning ? — Gen. 1 : 1. 1 What was in the beginning ? Do you think that Word, here, is the name of

any being ? — v. 14.

To whom does it apply ?
With whom was the Word ?

And who was this Word ?
2 What is said in this verse ?

Did the Word exist before the world was made ? In what condition and where did he exist ?- Ch.

17:5. 3 Who made all things?-Col. 1:16. Rom. 11 : 36. Do you

think that the phrase all things, means any more than the things in this world? What can men make ? Can one man create any thing? Can many men create any thing? Will you repeat some passages which speak of the CREATOR of the world? - Ps. 96 : 5. Jer.

10:11-16. Heb. 3 : 4. 4 What was in him ? Does this mean more than to say he was alive?

– Chap. 11: 43, 44. Can you repeat some passages to prove, that

something beside his power to give life to dead

bodies is ineant ? — Heb. 5:9. Col. 3 : 34. Was he a teacher of important truth, as well as

the AUTHOR of life ? Col. 2: 3. Were the people to whom Christ came ignorant ?

- Matt. 4: 16.
What did he bring to light ? - 2 Tim. 1:10.
5 Where did the light shine ?

What kind of darkness is here meant ?
Does the Bible ever represent the heart as dark?

- Repeat 2 Cor. 4: 6. Was it by his instructions that Christ became a

LIGHT? Did their ignorance and sin incline them to re

ceive the Savior's instructions ? Do you like to see the truth so clearly as to FEEL

that you are very guilty before God ? 6 What man was sent froin God ?

What John was this? - Matt. 3:1

What do you recollect about this man's preach

ing?
7 For what purpose did he come ?

How did John bear witness of the Savior ?
For what purpose did he preach about the Save

ior's coming into the world ?
8 What did John say of himself ?

Who did he mean by the phrase that light? 9 If the Savior was the true teacher, and the gos

pel the instruction here meant, have all men been enlightened by it ? What is said of the future extent of his king

dom ? - Dan. 2 : 44. Will all nations, then, know the Lord?-Is. 11:9. 10 WHERE was he?

Did men of that time receive him ?

What is it said he made ? 11 What people are called his own ?

For what reason ?

Did they readily receive him ? 12 What did he give to those who did receive him?

Is this a great privilege ? 1 Jn. 3 : 2.
Do you suppose the privileges of God's chil-

dren belong to you? 13 Whose children did the Jews call themselves ?

- Chap: 8:39. Did the Jews think that God would save them,

merely because they were descended from

Abraham ?
Well, do you think he will save all Jews on

that account? Will he save you on account of the piety of

your parents ? of whose will were those born, who are really

the sons of God ? What influence does the hope that one is a

child of God have on his life ?-1 Jn. 3: 3. Have you such a hope as leads you to avoid sin ?

LESSON II.

About Christ; and what John said of himself, to

the Messengers of the Priests.

To whom did we conclude the term Word was

applied, in the last lesson ? Where did you tell me he was, before the world

was made ? What things is it said he made ? 14 Why is it said the Word was made flesh ?

Heb. 2 : 14.
Tell, in your own language, what you think this

means.

Among whom did the Word dwell, as a man?
What did those persons behold ?
What does this mean, do you think? - Luke 7:

14. Matt. 8: 26.
What things did he do, which showed him to

be very kind and benevolent ?
