w-a.vs with iliieelness and simplicity, and Ho was
never siiipiied, never unable to Rive ansvvtr or
to ailoul instruction. litis occasional and Inci

meditate nnd nuanire their thoughts, and in our
times the most gifted niinisteis and lettures re
dure they say to wilting, unwilling
to tiust thcniselvca to the hour of their ser

belongs to the spontaneous discuine of Jeuus
and meals His skill.
OCCASION-liile sitting at meat in the
house of n 1'li.irUcr on the Sabbath diy (th.
xlv :1), Jt-aus was speaking on the subject ol
humility (Wises 7-11) mentioning two Instanc
es, somewhat lehted, u wedding ami a fenst,
in wlileli that excellent virtue might propel ly
be e.eipscd (Piov. .xv: "l). One ot those
sitting at the talde at tlu time, tliuiat In a
reinnrk ipilli foreign to the subject In hand.
Wo havo no ineain ot knowing the imiiio or nio
tlvo of this pcuoii, and the inoie one studio
vvoids tho greater will the surpilse lie at the
att. It has been suggcted that he was railed
out by something omlted from the narrative.
Others think lie was a setret cnpmy, desiring to
entangle Jesus and prepare for the rlinrgo of
lirason, on which He was subsequently in-raignt-il
(l.uko xlil: 2). Some support for this
last thought is found In the fact that there
weie piesent (Verse 1) those who were watching
Illm with an evil i-jp. It Is more probable
that tho nnn wis a friend, that lie bellcwd
what he said. He may havo wathed tho con
clusion liy a seiies ol rrllettlons, partly upon
what had Just hern spoken, partly upoii'foimrr
utUi.inccs ol Jesus (Mitt, villi II), for the ad
dicsscs weie so wonderful c to make a deep
iinpiesslon, causing n frequent nnd wide repeti
tlon, A sudden outbuist, breaking in upon the
Masters Icaililng must have awakened sill prise,
m,ESSr.l)NnSS. A great Until was uttered by
tills unknown pemon, when Ho said "Messed il
ho that shall rat bread In the kingdom ol Ood."
Iho angel ueciaieu substantially the same to
John in tho Island ot Patmos (llev, l; 0), The
liiotieiu L'lmiiM ins laiven up uio cpie.sloll, gIV
ing It u large pi ice In llttratuie. liy It beilev
eis now uudeistaiivl that communion vvhlth they
enjoy ono with another (John I; 13), ihe eating
of bread being a s.vmbul of fellowship, and the
klngdnm ol Cod rrpieentlng tho tpliltual hou',c.
hold, all of vvlilili was Intluded In the celcbra.
Hon ot the Lord's fiuppcr In the apostolic chuich
(1 Cor, x; 10). lint It Is not piolublo that
the speaker on tlds ucc- n had any such lofty
li'cas. Ia toubl not have1 obtained thtui from
Ihe word of Jims, who had not )ct delivcrtd th
p.uahlc of the King', son (Matt. x; 2), or the
spirch coneernlii-r Ihe thrones (I.ul;e xxli; SO),
In wh'ch inch thoughts were involvrif. J'.ven
the apostles held soidld views of the kingdom,
as a tmioial utralr, in vvhlth they sought prefer,
incut (l.uke xx. 21), and were theiefora (nea.
pablc of apprehending the higliir spiiltual en
jojmcntt, it is safe to insunie thnt Ihe nun

'Hie niimbeis indicated the wealth of the lio--t,
nnd the time allowed for pieparatlon indicated
that the guests weie to be of a high order. This
supper represents the plenteous proislon made
for the souls of men (Zcch. x: 17), In tho re

persons invited to this supper, piesentcd nu

Intended to accept, Pining the day's following
while the provision was being made by the host,
no one declined. At last, when all was leady,
the house in order and the feast prepared (Matt,
xxlis J), the servant went forth saying "Come,"
It was as thin that with one consent, as If there
had been a iiiiituil understanding to ofler Intend
ed Insult, that all began to make excuses (Psahn
.: 13j. To make mattcis still vvoise they pre
sented no opoloey for delay, or any adequito
ground for their pu-scnt desire to avoid the
feast. One declared Hint he must go and seo
a piece of ground which he had recently pur
thasd, nnd another pleaded that he must piove
a joke of oxen. Both matters might hare heon
delated without loss. A third urged Hut hav

master of the feast was greatly offended heeauso
ol tho (ontemptuous conduct ot those whom he
had invited. of them were neighboif,
some of them weie menus, all ol them hcIou?lug
to his rank and station. They lad disregarded
the common rouiteslrs of sorlil life and expo.ed

The recital given by the Conservatory

stiects and lanes ot the city, beaiing the new
instiuctions. A glad response might be t
pectPd to Ids invitation. Surely the beggars at
the stiett comeis, half fed and half clad (Matt.
xwi: 11) lould di-siio nothing moie than a table
bountifully supplied with food. The maimed
and halt, shunned by all as divinely atllittid,
nnd the blind, populaily esteemed (John Is: 2)
to be sinners or the sons of slmifrs, denied rec
ognition, outcast and forsaken, could legard
themselves highly favored by this call to the
house of the rich. But even these were mens
uieably indifferent, when accosted and Invited
to the supper. The servant returned to say
that he had been only partially successful, that
while some came, the guest chamber was not'
full. It became ntcessaiy for the hoit to ic
sort to the most earnest effort. "do out
quickly into the highways and hedges and com
pel them to come In," lie said. Vac eveiy proper
and reasonable method in the most urgent man
ner to obtain guests. ThLs was the extreme
aspect of the parable. It showed that men
were teluctant to accept Christ, even when by
so doing they might obtain the very things
which they long most ol all to possess. It rip
resented that protratted, diligent (Psalm exui:
C), and self-sacrificing effort which ministers
must make II they would win the souls ol men
(Lain. Hi: iS).
IIKJIXTIOS, The tlinm ol the parable was
reached In the last feature, The Character of
the feast had been changed. Kroin a social
recognition of those entitled to honor, It had
become a gratuitous oiler to those who had no
claim for attention; fiom a mark ot legard for
equals and friends it was converted into a dis
play of kindness to inferiors, And those In
feriors were on such a low plane that they
weie scared) able to appreciate the pruffeitd
favor. The rich man has gone begging among
heggais for guests. Xovv comes the sequel to
the .stoiy. The host detlarea to his servant that
because of the shameful tieatmcnt vvhleli he has
received none of those will bo admllcd who were
first Invited. They weie to bo totally and pti.
nuncntly excluded (Piov. Ii J !."), and that
lact was maue ino ground for urging the scl
vnnt to diligence. The exclusion ot one ilass
