THE SCRANTON TRIBUNE-SATURDAY, JANUARY 26, 1901'.
HOSH who may bo nsklnc
vhether Hie churchci arcs
osliiK their hold upon the
peoplo will," says the Phila
delphia I.oclKer, "bo Inter
eitecl in the answer that the Philadel
phia Methodist Conference had In ll'OO
more inlnlsteis in Its membership, and
the 1'hllndelphla Confeienco rliuicliea
moro members upon their tolls than
there were Methodist ministers nnd
members In the whole United States In
1S00. Tlio Methodist church at llroad
nnd Arch streets is alono worth as
much money as were all Methodist
churches In America In the opcnliifT
year oftho century Just ended. Tho
Methodist churches within the city
limits and belonging to any one of tho
lour conferenco districts have, taken
together, laiKer annual Incomes than
liad all Methodist churches in tho
United States 100 years aso.
"When the last century opened there
was not a. Methodist benevolent soci
ety. In 1S20, when the first such soci
ety 'began operations, Its Income for
one J ear amounted to SS23.01. Now It
amounts to $1,300,000 n year, and an
offoit is making this year to raise the
sum to $2,000,000. Mothodlstcducatlonal
woik has been wholly the growth of
the century Just ended. Now there arc
-19,000 students in Methodist coIIfrvs,
and $31,000,000 has been amassed in
building. and endowments
"It takes $27,000,000 a year to keen
AniPilcau Methodism going church
support, missions, literature and bet
terments. In Philadelphia, Iloston or
Chicago there Is no single Methodist
chinch which has an annual Incomo
exceeding $12,000, but in New York
t hero "are two churches which excepd
these iigures. One Is the Madison Ave
nue, which financially Is the largest
it- -Mcuiouist cnurcii in America, and the
other Calvary, which is tho second
laigest. Their Incomes are if-spectlve-ly
$39,400 and $27,700. Yet in total out
lay for education, for church support
and in value of church property Meth
odises mo the only body which can
compete with tho Roman Catholic,
actually surpassing that body. Indeed,
In the value of propeity by $12,000,000."
Hew Trunk Schell Ballentlne, of
'hiist's Episcopal church, So.rnnton,
delivered an uddress Monday mornirur
befoif Wllkes-Caire clerio on the sub
ject or "Hebrew Parallelism nnd the
Systematic Structure of Sci Ipture," Mr.
Mallentlne is now engaged in translat
ing the Bible into modern Amurlc.in
rorm und phrase under the title of
"The Modern American Bible," which
was leviewed appieclativtly in this
Journal on the Sth itist.
The speaker began by giving an ac
count of the subject as it was first
piesentotl to his mind as a tlieoloeie.il
.student In Philadelphia. Prom this
point h gave tho histoiy of his own
s-tudy of the subject and the giadual
dawning of Its Importance upon him as
it means of tho beauties of Biblical
thought and oxpiesslon.
The rending: of tin notes In It. CI.
Moultou'b volume on Proverbs was tho
' ''caslon of his discovering thnt tho
J-i nion on the Mount, the Charge to
lie Twelve ami the Charge to tho
Seventy, and In fact wherever Our
l.o-d in his teaching rose to any
iK'Ight of pathos or power, yes. In
nerv such place, the old Hebrew
i' rillellum became manifest and lent
a beauty and majesty to the expres
sion thoroughly In keeping with the
thought and a mo-t llttlng vehicle of
For Instance, note tin- anaurement
In this well-known passage:
Uk and it shall be hlin i
Seek, and je shill Ami,
Knock, and It skill be opened unto ym
Tor every one tlut ,il.etli, i. eclteth,
lie that seckcth flnhlh.

T-t they trample them under th"'r feet,
And turn again and tend you.
lleie the first and fourth aie par.
ailed, and the second and third. In
other words, It Is the dogs who aie
apt to "turn ngaln and rend you." It's
he swlno wlto aie apt to "trample
them under their feet." Again:
Our Father who ait in heaven,
Hallowed ho thy name,
Thy Kingdom come,
Thy will be done.
On earth as It li In heaven
(me us this day our dally bicad,
nd torch e uj our trespassoj,
v o forgive thoo who trespass asalnt tv,
nd lead in not Into temptation.
Put dtliur us from eiil.
By thi3 arrangement it Is readily
sfun that the Lord's Piayer has Just
seven petitions. These petitions are
divided, as la usual in tho Bible, Into
two sections, three In tho first, four In
tho second. But each section has Just
ilvo lines. The first five lines consti
tute an envelope stanza. That is, the
main sense can bo gotten, not only by
leading straight nhead, as usual, but
albo by reading the first line, then the
Hfth line, then the becond, third nnd
fourth. In other, words, the first three
petitions aro not tlireo separate, abso
lute petitions, "Hallowed by thy name.
Thy kingdom come, Thy will bo done,"
of and in themselves. The meaning
lather Is, "Our Father who art in
licmcn, On earth as It is In heaven,
Hallowed be thy name, etc.
Then in tho becond part It Is seen
that the vital thuught to be kept in
mind Is: "Ab wo forgive thoso who
ticsposB against us." The last four
petitions must bo mado with this
thought In view as the axis about
which they revolve.
Again: Tnko the culmination of the
Sermon on the Mount:
So whoever beam these sajlnji ot mine
And does them,
I will liken to a wife man,
Who built Ills house on a rock.
The rain descended,
The floods came,
Tbo winds blew,
They beat upon tlut house,
It did not fall,
I'or It was founded ot, a, rock.
And every one who heart tbeso savings
And does not do them,
I will liken to a foollili man,
Who built his house on the sand.
Tho rain descended,
The floods came,
The winds blew,
They smote ajjtlnst that house,
And great was its fill.
Here every line In the second stanza
aasweru to every lno In tho first, and
the two form as fine a atrophia and
nnti-stroplilo arrangement as is found
anywhere else In the Bible or In the
old classic Greek Tragedians,
Mr. Bnllcntlne showed that the vari
ety of literature In the Bible und Its
beauty and grandeur Is not only s
Bieat, but greater thun any other body
of literature In tho world. Such Idvls
as those of Ituth and Bsther nro fully
as Interesting and attractive as any
thing In the whole body of so-called
classic literature, yea, more so. Such
diatnns as Job aro much moio pro
found and nobler than any In Shakes
epaie. Such an epic as Hevelatlon sur
passes the Hind of Homer.
The coming Bible will show by Its
typographical arrangement its beauties
and its glories as we can not now ap
preciate them. The boy of twenty-five
yeats hence will boo and realize these
beauties as only old and profound Bib
lical scholars of twenty-five years ago
could do. Tho Bible an llteraturo of
the finest and subllmest kind will
shortly be enthroned in our homes and
butter than all In our hearts, nnd no
longer ns a dust catcher and an orna
ment of our centre tables.

The intcr-denomliulloual committee Is respon

haps, is not linpoitajit, as thcro is no ncccssaiy

vre aro certain, the two lessons pertain to the
mliiittry of Jesus In tho teuiple-. At Jerusalem
on the Tue-day piec-eding Ills crucifixion, u clay

among various classes of icrons who had been
drawn together by the national Interest iu tho
Pusovtr. Our lesson is in two ports elo.ily
lelated in point of time, covering an interview
cf Jei-us with the rUriscc. In the first pait,

HIVAIi SECTS (Verso 31). Theie wcto tbiee
sects, cr, us we should now s.iy, denominations,
among the Jews In the tlmo of Christ. Ono of
these sects, tbo Dsie-nes, Is not mentioned In tin
New Testament. Tbo either bodies the Pharisee's
and tho Saddutcc, wrro moro numerous and In
fluential. They were widely scjarated In doc
trine and uage. The Saddueecs represented the
wealthy and philosophical who sought tn chinge
Judaism and to conform It to the latest tleliv
erimcia Iu advanced thought. Tho l'aruecu hUl
tenaciously to tho old wavs and were very strict
lu their observances of tho customs of Mnscs
(Acts, xxvl: 0). Accordinglj-, these two parties
were auious to Let some advantage each ou-r
tl.c other. It was this rplrlt which led to the
fact wo are cow to consider. The Sadduccci
hud been sllenceel In their attempted questioning
ot Jeus, mid the Pharisees were thereby led
to try their ability, assuming that if they sue.
cee-ded it would be to thrir tlcdlt among Ihe
TESiINO QUr.aTI0..S (Ver.es 33 and it,).
One of tho Pharisaic party, a lawj-er, that 1,

cussion, fhe hope w-as that the foimcr might
bo found superior, or that the latter might be,

Ignoraneo or dlslojaltj-. In either event he
who had liscn Into such popular lav or and Tilled
tho land with applauso would l-o put to ronlu

would have) the honor (Luke, xi 2V). a single
question was propounded, "Uhtch i tbo great
commandment?" The iwlnt raised had been
long discussed among tho learned, llko thoso
matters which the boys Introduce into their
debating societies. In reality the query was Ir
reverent. All of (Joel's laws are Important. Not
ono of them may bo broken (Matt, vi 1'j), It
is not wise to gride them and arrange In classes,
as if special valuo must be attached to some,

Christ Silences the Pharisees.
Alatt xxii: 34-46.
new and beautiful epitome of the law' in two
part. Ono of them He mentions as first, that
is, it naturally precede the other, namely, love
to (!od with all the heart, and soul and mind.
This is In reality a lepetltion of what Moses
said (Butt, vl: 6), in his second giving of the
law Just before bis death on mount Nebo (I)eut.
I. 12). It was the came iu foim that Jesus
give on a rettaln occasion to a lawyer who in
quired tho way to eternal llfo (I.ul.o :: 17).
Ihtio was eminent propriety iu making this
answer at this time, because it athrmed what
the Master bad raid uud wlut all the labbls
ought to have known. l.ovu to Cod should,
Indeed, piccede cvcij- other giacc. Thcro is no
duty kui.i1 to this, end out ot this comes ull
thoso good qualities tint glorify human nature.
Piety then, in point ot time, is first. He who
would be right khould begin here, and whatever
In docs aflciwaid Lhould harmonize with this,
NClGIIBOft I.OVK (Verses 30 to 40)-ad .levis
paused theio He would have been iiiIundeiNtood
and serious consequences would have come to the
church In all time. Love to G'od, so He went
on to t-aj', should draw after it love to men.
He even used a bettT word, nelshbor, express
ting not liiei ely a human being, but ono to
whom wo aro related, He had previously ex
plained tho word neighbor (I.ul.o m CO), as de
noting anj- cno who ne-eeSs our a&sManco. B.it
I ere Ho defines neighbor love, requiring that It
shall bo the same in kind and degrco as rclf-love.
That shows that Ho meant not an emotion il
but a volitional state, a movement of tiie heart
that bestows favon. Tills law not only enjoins
this exercise tovvuid otheis, but in reality re
strains tho exercise toward one's self. It places
a limit upon all IIiom- acts that otherwise mtarht
degenerate Into selfishness. But what is parti
cularly noticeable is the fact tlut Jesus saj-s
this law Is like unto the other Just given. It
has ono and the tame origin. These two loves
do not spring tip and grow Ecparatelj-, but to
gether (1 John iiii 17). And then with mailer
stroke, Jesus declared that these laws embodied
tho vvliolo of Judabm.
(IlltlSrS SON-HIP (Verses tl and li). It was
thin the linn of Jrus to ask questions. Tliat
was the modo of disputation common In those
dajs with tho learned. Plist ono Kide and Hun

qulied concerning tho lawjei's view of Messnh,
Wiose- son Is Ho? Of course that was a Iradliij
qiisellon. Upon the answer given another would
be immediately islsed. But It was legitimate.
At that time nothing mote fully involved tho
Intercut cf the Jewish people than the hope ef
a king uci-oiillng to the piedlctlons of the pro
pht. (Pan. Hi 41). Tho kingdom w-as the one
dublre of all. The question was, theiefote, more
Important than that put by the lawjer. In ask
ing It Jesus had gained a decided advantage. If
the genealogy of tho Messiah could bo known
thcro need be no mistake when Ho appeared.
With great promptness the answer came, "the
son ot David." This was In full accord with
I lie Hertpttire (I Kings, li; 4), showing that the
Pliiiliki weio not Ignoiant on this point.

ot n kingdom, over which should ieii.ni n son
of the1 most famous king, whoso glory had ex
tended among all nations. But this was by no
means the moio important tiutli concerning
Messiah. He was to be a Divine Being, the Son
ot ('id (Prialm 11; U-i), as well as the son of
David. This fact was well known to Duid
hlmiclf, who had stated it In one of Mi temple
hjuius which had been suig in woihip for a
thotuatid jvars. But tho Pharisees bad o-er-locked
the predicted divinity and laid emphasis
on tho expected one. By -thus obscuring the
gic-ater and exalting the lesser they bad fallen
into innumerable misconceptions, not the least
being a temporal reign of this Messiah with at
