BY REV. J.S.KIRTLrTY.D D.
. 14. John 1:10-3 Johm the Bap
tist and Jesua. '
fTlHE lesson of last Sunday gave ua
A. the tribute of John, the writer of
this story, to Jesus. This lesson gives
us the tribute of John, the forerunner
of Jesus, as recorded by this writer.
John. We have to keep the two Johns
properly distinguished in our thought.
Luke Is the only one who tells any
thing about tne birth and lineage of
John the baptist, or baptizer. He be
gan his ministry about the Spring ef
A. D. 26. coming out of his long retire
ment and study with wonderful knowl
edge of the people, of his times and of
his own definite mission. He preached
three things the presence of their
long-expected Messiah and therefore of
the kingdom of heaven which they had
looked for, though It was to be a very
different thing from what they expect
ed and desired; repentance as the only
way of entering that kingdom, not de
scent from Abraham nor ceremonial
perfection; proof of repentance by bap
tism and an amended life. He made
the same demands on all, but when
Jesus came to be baptized John saw at
once that here was a man who didn't
need to repent. But Jesus said that, as
he had accepted man's lot on earth, it
was fitting that ha should submit to
every right law, do all forms of right
eousness. The baptism of Jesus was
probably early In January, A. D. 27.
John' Witness to Himself 19-24.
"And this is the witness of John,
when the Jews sent unto him from Je
rusalem priests and Levites to ask him
Who art thou? And he confessed, and
denied not; and he confessed, I am not
the Christ. And they asked him. What
then? Art thou Elijah? And he saith
am not. Art thou the prophet? And
he answered. No. They said therefore
unto him. Who art thou? that we may
give an answer to them that sent us.
What sayest thou of thyself? He said,
I am the voice of one crying In the wil
derness. Make straight the w.ay of tha
Lord, as said Isaiah the prophet. And
they had been sent from the Pharisees.
1. Peril. John was In peril. He bad
preached with awakening power and
had drawn the people out from tha cit
les and from all over the country to see
and hear the strange man who was
waking the echoes down near the Jor
dan. The Pharisees were stirred and
their authorities sent a delegation all
the way to the Jordan to ask him one
question, not who he was, for they
knew he was the son of Zacharlah and
Elizabeth; not whom he referred to in
his preaching, for they knew he meant
the Messiah; but about his prophetic
character and his own relation to the
Messiah, whether he himself was the
Messiah or an old prophet come to life,
Their motive was stealthy, selfish.
Those Pharisees were losing their hold
on their dupes, just In proportion as
John got people to repent and expect
the Messiah, and many of them had
come out from the city and been bap
tized, not as a sign of repentance, but
as a means of getting hold of this new
movement and controlling It In their
own interest. But John soon saw
through them, and, as Luke and Mat
thew tell us, called them & brood of
writhing, wriggling serpents, trying to
crawl into the crowd he was gathering
for his Master, and told them to go and
repent and prove their repentance by
the fruits of it. Now this delegation
they send has a shrewd purpose and
they have three surmises. He might be
Elijah come to life, for it was said that
Elijah would come again, but the
prophet meant that another man would
do a corrective, preparatory work like
that of Elijah. Jesus afterward said
that John had come in the spirit and
power of Elijah. Another surmise was
that he was "that prophet" spoken of
in Deut. xviil:15; another, that he might
consider himself the actual Messiah.
2. Humility. John had a three-fold
temptation to resent their question in
an. ugly spirit, knowing their vicious
habits and their satanlc spirit; to
claim more honors than he was entitled
to, gloating over the prestige he had
gained; to claim the most exalted mis
sion of the Messiah. But not for a sin
gle moment did he give way to vlndlc
tlveness, nor vanity, nor ambition. Per
haps he knew that he was to be a sec
ond Elijah, but not once did he claim
that honor. He waited for his Master
to award it to him.
3. Service. His was the mission of
humble service. Had he claimed to be
the Messiah, or one of the old prophets
come to life,' they would not have
known better and would probably have
believed him for a while, but he took
the place of a servant to the Messiah.
Two figures show his humility. One is
that of a voice. He is only a voice, slm
ply the vibration of air, "tha nearest
thing to nothing" we know. But it is
more than that; It is the Instrument
for expressing the majestic truths
which tha mind thinks and the exalted
passions of the soul. The voice dies
out, but the truths and emotions live.
Not an idle voice, for it is-the servant
of the king going on ahead of him, as
was the case in the Orient when the
king made a Journey and sent his serv
ants ahead to tell the people to get the
roads ready, leveling down and filling
up and taking out rough stones. That
was John's work. The other figure is
that of sandal-bearer to a master, an
honor too great for him.
Wo cannot fail to notice his re
straint. He really tells them nothing
much except what will attract admiring
attention to his coming Master.
John's Witness to Christ 23-43.
And they asked him. and said unto
him. Why baptlzest thou then, if thou
be not that Christ, nor Ellas, neither
John answered them, saying, I bap
tize with water; but there standest one
among you, whom ye know not.
He it is. who coming after me. Is
preferred before tne, whose shoe's
latchet I am not worthy to unloose.
These things were done In Bethabara
beyond Jordan, where John was bap
tizing. The next day John seeth Jesus com
ing unto him, and saith. Behold the
Lamb of God, which taketh-away the
sin of the world.
This is he of whom I said. After me
Cometh a. man which Is preferred be

should be made manifest to Israel,

the Spirit descending from heaven like
& dove, and It abode upon him.
And I knew him not; but he that
sent me to baptize with water, the
6ame said unto me. Upon whom thou
shalt see tha Spirit descending, and
remaining on him, the same is ha
which baptizetb. with the Holy Ghost.
1. Supremacy. In all that he said
about himself ho was giving honor to
his Master. According to Zech. xiii. 1.
they thought baptism was for the Mes
siah or Elijah or "that prophet" to
perform then why did he do it? Here
is a five-fold witness to Christ and it
seems that Christ was that moment
there listening to what ho said. First,
his superiority to a mere servant, "be
fore him and preferred before him."
