134:8.3 and with whom he wrestled in spirit, and whom he

134:8.3 and whom he defeated in power, were real;

134:8.4 J. spent the last three weeks of August and the first

134:8.4 During these weeks he finished the mortal task of

134:8.9 when J. came down from his sojourn on Mount

134:8.9 J. had paid the last price required of him to attain

134:8.9 the so-called “great temptation” of J. took place

134:8.10 as J. was making his descent, he met Tiglath coming

134:8.10 He was a silent and much changed man as they

134:8.10 he took leave of the lad, giving him the donkey.

134:8.10 He then proceeded south by the same way he had

134:9.1 J. had a family meeting in Capernaum over the

134:9.2 J. and John stopped overnight at Bethany with

134:9.2 J. walked about over the near-by hills and engaged

134:9.3 but J. remained a thoughtful and silent spectator.

134:9.3 He viewed it all as misrepresentative of the character

134:9.3 He looked upon the doings of this day as a

134:9.3 He burned to give vent to the declaration of the real

134:9.3 J. did drop numerous remarks which disturbed John;

134:9.3 never understood the real significance of what J.

134:9.4 J. planned to remain throughout the feast of

134:9.4 Although J. did not participate in the merriment of

134:9.4 he derived pleasure and experienced satisfaction as

134:9.4 as he beheld the lighthearted and joyous abandon of

134:9.5 J. took leave of John, saying that he desired to retire

134:9.5 saying that he desired to retire to the hills where he

134:9.5 where he might the better commune with his Father.

134:9.5 but J. insisted that he stay through the festivities,

134:9.5 J. did not return to Jerusalem. After almost a week

134:9.5 the hills near Bethany, he departed for Capernaum.

134:9.5 On the way home he spent a day and a night alone

134:9.5 when he arrived at Capernaum, he seemed more

134:9.5 he seemed more cheerful than when he had left

134:9.6 J. went to the chest containing his personal effects,

134:9.6 And he worked several months, until January of the

134:9.6 After this period of working with J., no matter what

134:9.6 never wholly gave up his faith in the mission of J..

134:9.7 he spent most of his time on the interior finishing of

134:9.7 He took great pains with all his handiwork and

134:9.7 when he completed a commendable piece of work.

134:9.7 Though he wasted little time upon trifles,

134:9.7 he was a painstaking workman when it came to the

134:9.8 J. listened to these reports as John slowly worked

134:9.8 But J. worked on, making boats, until John had

134:9.8 J. laid down his tools, declaring, “My hour has come

134:9.9 But a great change had been coming over J..

134:9.9 who had enjoyed his visits and ministrations as he

135:0.3 was the visit, in company with his parents, to J. and

135:2.2 made a journey to Nazareth to visit Mary and J..

135:2.2 After bidding J. and Mary good-bye at the end of

135:2.2 John did not again see J. until the event of his

135:3.3 his parents concerning J. and by these passages

135:3.3 Neither did his talk with J., at the time of his visit

135:3.3 his distant cousin, J. of Nazareth, was the true

135:3.3 that he had come to sit on the throne of David,

135:5.2 About one hundred years before the days of J.

135:5.6 minds of the Jews of the generation of John and J.

135:7.1 but he was far from certain as to whether or not J.

135:7.1 teachings of his parents that J., born in the City of

135:7.1 he was sorely in doubt as to the part J. would play

135:7.2 John journeyed north, he thought much about J..

135:7.2 he will gather the wheat into his garner, but the

135:7.2 the chaff will he burn up with the judgment fire.”


135:8.1 J. had spoken favorably of John’s message, and

135:8.1 to see John once a week and brought back to J.

135:8.2 J. requested that they postpone the discussion

135:8.2 following day, when he would give them his answer.

135:8.2 He slept little that night, being in close communion

135:8.2 He had arranged to have noontime lunch with his

135:8.2 That Sunday morning J. was working as usual in

135:8.2 they knew that J. was very regular about such

135:8.3 He went out to his brothers James and Jude,

135:8.4 were standing in line awaiting their turn when J. and

135:8.4 John had been inquiring about J. of Zebedee’s sons.

135:8.4 John was day by day expecting to see him arrive on

135:8.5 John did not look up to see J. until the Son of

135:8.5 When John recognized J., the ceremonies were

135:8.6 with emotion as he made ready to baptize J. in the

135:8.6 Thus did John baptize J. and his two brothers

135:8.6 an apparition immediately over the head of J.,

135:8.6 A great change came over the countenance of J.,

135:8.6 coming up out of the water in silence he took leave

135:8.6 And no man saw J. again for forty days.

135:8.7 John followed J. a sufficient distance to tell him the

135:8.7 John allowed J. to continue on his way after he had

135:8.7 that you are the Deliverer.” But J. made no reply.

135:9.1 the story of the Gabriel visitation to Mary before J.

135:9.1 J. spoke no word to John even after he had told him

135:9.1 They wondered where J. had gone, and when they

135:9.2 forty days of tarrying, waiting for the return of J..

135:9.3 the reputed Messiah, but J. was not to be seen.

135:9.4 three weeks after J. had left them, there arrived on

135:9.5 What was to be the relation of John to J.?

135:9.5 John rather decided, with the minority, that J. had

135:9.6 experience, and he prayed for the return of J..

135:9.6 organized scouting parties to go in search of J.,

135:9.7 looked up toward the north and beheld J. coming to

135:9.7 As he approached them, John stood on a large rock

135:9.7 This is he of whom I have said, ‘After me there will

135:9.7 is preferred before me because he was before me.

135:9.8 J. bade them return to their food while he sat down

135:9.9 Early in the morning of the next day he took leave of

135:10.1 never again preached as he had before baptizing J..

135:10.2 In the weeks following the baptism of J. the

135:10.3 going into Galilee to join the followers of J..

135:11.1 John longed to see J. but had to be content with

135:11.1 John was often tempted to doubt J. and his divine

135:11.1 was a great test of his faith in, and loyalty to, J..

135:11.2 after reporting concerning the public activities of J.

135:11.2 “So you see, Teacher, that he who was with you at

135:11.2 He even feasts with publicans and sinners.

135:11.2 and yet he does nothing to effect your deliverance.”

135:11.2 He must increase but I must decrease.

135:11.2 J comes down to the earth from heaven and is above

135:11.3 did he wholly doubt the mission and divinity of J..

135:11.3 But it was a sore disappointment to John that J. sent

135:11.3 that he came not to see him, and that he exercised

135:11.3 that he exercised none of his great power to deliver

135:11.3 J. knew all about this. He had great love for John,

135:11.3 He had great love for John, but being now cognizant

135:11.3 he constrained himself not to interfere in the natural

135:11.4 John again sent trusted messengers to J.,

135:11.4 when these two disciples gave this message to J.,

135:11.4 And this was the last word John received from J..

135:12.2 And this new agitation concerning J. of Nazareth,

135:12.7 and after laying it in a tomb, they went and told J..

136:0.1 J. began his public work at the height of the popular

136:0.1 There was a great contrast between John and J..

136:0.1 J. was a calm and happy laborer; only a few times

136:0.1 only a few times in his life was he ever in a hurry.

136:0.1 J. was a comforting consolation to the world and

136:0.1 J. spoke of John as the greatest of the prophets

136:0.1 he also said that the least of those who saw the great

136:0.2 When J. began to preach, there remained the

136:1.2 In the days of John and J. the more learned Jews

136:1.3 It therefore becomes evident that J. could never

136:1.3 a recognition of J. as the terminator of one age and

136:1.6 It was revealed only in J.; the world knew nothing


136:2.1 J. was baptized at the height of John’s preaching

136:2.1 J. in no sense received John’s baptism as a rite of

136:2.1 J. was only following the example of many pious

136:2.2 When J. went down into the Jordan to be baptized,

136:2.2 he was a mortal of the realm who had attained the

136:2.2 He stood in the Jordan that day a perfected mortal

136:2.2 established between the mortal mind of J. and the

136:2.3 due to take place in the personality experience of J.

136:2.3 when he went down into the Jordan with his two

136:2.3 As John laid his hands upon J. to baptize him,

136:2.3 Thus did J. observe his own former divine spirit

136:2.3 And he heard this same spirit of Paradise origin now

136:2.3 Only the eyes of J. beheld the Personalized Adjuster.

136:2.4 J., looking up to the near-by Adjuster, prayed: “My

136:2.4 This heavenly vision was seen only by J..

136:2.5 voice of the Personalized Adjuster that John and J.

136:2.5 J. was in constant communion with this exalted Adj.

136:2.6 When J. was baptized, he repented of no misdeeds;

136:2.6 he made no confession of sin.

136:2.6 At his baptism he heard the unmistakable call of his

136:2.6 he went away into private seclusion for forty days to

136:2.6 J., as he was and on Urantia, was following the

136:2.7 This day of baptism ended the purely human life of J.

136:2.8 (J. was almost thirty-one and one-half years old

136:2.8 thirty-one years old when he was baptized.

136:2.8 Luke says that J. was baptized in the fifteenth year

136:3.1 J. had endured the great temptation of his mortal

136:3.1 when he had been wet with the dews of Mount

136:3.1 he had met and defeated the Urantia pretender,

136:3.1 J. of Nazareth had become the Planetary Prince of

136:3.2 After his baptism he entered upon the forty days of

136:3.2 he determined upon the policy to be pursued and the

136:3.2 phase of earth life which he was about to inaugurate.

136:3.3 J. didn’t go into retirement for the purpose of fasting

136:3.3 He was not an ascetic, and he came forever to

136:3.3 he came forever to destroy all such notions regarding

136:3.3 J. was then wholly self-conscious concerning his

136:3.3 He now fully recalled the bestowal charge and its

136:3.3 by Immanuel, ere he entered upon his incarnation.

136:3.3 He now clearly and fully comprehended all these

136:3.3 he desired to be away for a season of meditation so

136:3.3 so that he could think out the plans and decide upon

136:3.4 J. encountered his universe chief executive,

136:3.4 now laid before J. information indicating that his

136:3.4 that day when he came down from Mount Hermon

136:3.4 J. was now informed, upon the highest authority

136:3.4 He had had this assurance direct from Paradise in

136:3.5 While he tarried on the mountain, talking with

136:3.5 appeared to J. and Gabriel in person, saying: “The

136:3.6 J. held converse with Gabriel regarding the welfare

136:3.6 work which he was about to undertake on Urantia,

136:3.6 he would be ever mindful of the counsel he received

136:3.7 the sons of Zebedee were engaged in searching for J.

136:4.1 J. formulated the plans for the remainder of his

136:4.1 He first decided not to teach contemporaneously

136:4.1 He planned to remain in comparative retirement

136:4.1 J. well knew that John’s fearless and tactless

136:4.1 J. began definitely to plan his program of public

136:4.2 The first thing J. did, after thinking through the

136:4.2 Carefully he thought over the advice given him

136:4.2 he was to leave no permanent writing on the planet.

136:4.2 Never again did J. write on anything except sand.

136:4.2 J. destroyed all of his writing that was preserved

136:4.2 And J. pondered well over Immanuel’s advice

136:4.2 political attitude toward the world as he should find

136:4.3 J. did not fast during this forty days’ isolation.

136:4.3 The longest period he went without food was his

136:4.3 when he was so engrossed with his thinking that he

136:4.3 with his thinking that he forgot all about eating.

136:4.3 But on the third day he went in search of food.

136:4.3 Neither was he tempted during this time by any evil

136:4.5 record as the “temptations of J. in the wilderness.”

136:4.5 J. thought over the whole span of human life on

136:4.6 Gabriel had reminded J. that there were two ways

136:4.6 two ways in which he might manifest himself to the

136:4.6 case he should choose to tarry on Urantia for a time.

136:4.6 And it was made clear to J. that his choice in this

136:4.9 It was made clear to J. that there were two ways

136:4.9 there were two ways in which he could order the

136:4.9 But it was indicated to J. that it would afford his

136:4.9 Immanuel, great satisfaction if he, J., should see fit

136:4.9 finish up his earth career of incarnation as he had

136:4.9 J. promised himself he would go back to the world

136:4.9 he would go back to the world to finish his earth

136:4.9 any two ways he would always choose the Father’s

136:4.9 he lived out the remainder of his earth life always

136:4.9 Even to the bitter end he invariably subordinated

136:4.10 communion with his own spirit that he might seek to

136:4.11 J. was always torn in his heart by two opposing

136:4.12 1. He entertained a strong desire to win his people—

136:4.12 And he well knew their ideas concerning the coming

136:4.13 2. To live and work as he knew his Father would

136:4.14 J. lived in an ancient rock cavern, a shelter in the

136:4.14 He drank from the small spring which came from the

136:5.1 J. was presented with the vision of the assembled

136:5.1 whether or not he would make use of these mighty

136:5.2 J. decided he would not utilize a single personality

136:5.2 J. did not constantly behold these attendant

136:5.3 J. assigned the immediate command of this

136:5.3 assured J. that in no case would these superhuman

136:5.3 J. voluntarily deprived himself of all superhuman

136:5.4 Adjuster took great pains to point out to J. that,

136:5.4 was J. admonished that, while the Adjuster’s

136:5.5 Thus did J. become apprised of the working out of

136:5.5 He had by a single decision excluded all of his

136:5.5 necessary for J. to remain constantly time conscious.

136:5.6 And this was the actual status of J. as he went forth

136:5.6 as he went forth to begin his public ministry on

136:6.1 J. now turned his thoughts toward himself. What

136:6.1 What would he, now the fully self-conscious creator

136:6.1 confront him when he returned to Galilee to resume

136:6.1 right where he was in these lonely hills, had this

136:6.1 Should he go in quest of food as any ordinary man

136:6.1 or should he merely exercise his normal creative

136:6.2 J. thus settled upon another and consistent policy

136:6.2 he now deliberately chose to pursue the path of

136:6.2 he definitely decided against a policy which would

136:6.2 But he could not promise himself, as he had already

136:6.2 J. decided that his lifework should be organized and

136:6.3 But J. was not concerned merely with this world

136:6.3 he was living a life designed to instruct and inspire

136:6.4 Before his baptismal illumination he had lived in

136:6.4 He emphatically decided to continue on in just such

136:6.4 He purposed to follow the unnatural course—he

136:6.4 —he decided not to seek self- preservation.

136:6.4 He chose to go on pursuing the policy of refusing to

136:6.4 He formulated his conclusions in the words of

136:6.5 His superhuman power he might possibly use for

136:6.5 he pursued this policy consistently to the very end,

136:6.5 “He saved others; himself he cannot save”—because

136:6.5 himself he cannot save”—because he would not.

136:6.6 J. knew the sort of Messiah his compatriots expected

136:6.6 he had all the powers and prerogatives to measure

136:6.6 but he decided against such a magnificent program

136:6.6 J. looked upon such a course of expected miracle

136:6.6 he might accelerate natural law, but to transcend his

136:6.6 overawing of his fellow men, that he would not do.

136:6.7 J. sorrowed for his people; he fully understood how

136:6.7 he fully understood how they had been led up to the

136:6.8 He was not a Messiah coming to multiply bread and

136:6.8 He came not to minister to temporal needs only;

136:6.8 he came to reveal his Father in heaven to his children

136:6.8 while he sought to lead his earth children to join him

136:6.9 J. portrayed to an onlooking universe the folly and

136:6.10 This great decision of J. portrays dramatically the

136:6.11 J. thus revealed to the creatures of his universe the

136:7.1 He decided to exercise normal watchcare over his

136:7.1 As he was formulating this decision, J. was seated

136:7.1 J. was seated under the shade of a tree on a ledge

136:7.1 He fully realized that he could cast himself off the

136:7.1 nothing could happen to harm him provided he

136:7.1 provided he would abrogate his second decision

136:7.2 J. knew his fellow countrymen were expecting a

136:7.2 Well had he been taught that Scripture: “There

136:7.4 J. was consistently loyal to this decision.

136:7.4 he steadfastly adhered to the decision of this hour

136:8.1 which he presently decided in accordance with the

136:8.1 Should he in any manner lend his universe powers

136:8.1 He decided that he should not.

136:8.1 He settled upon a policy of procedure which

136:8.1 And he consistently lived up to this great decision.

136:8.1 Even when he permitted the manifestation of time-

136:8.1 he almost invariably admonished the recipients of his

136:8.1 And always did he refuse the taunting challenge of

136:8.2 J. very wisely foresaw that the working of miracles

136:8.2 He refused to become a mere wonder-worker.

136:8.2 He resolved to become occupied with but a single

136:8.3 and near-doubting, for J. was man as well as God.

136:8.3 It was evident he would never be received by the

136:8.3 Jews as the Messiah if he did not work wonders.

136:8.3 if he would consent to do just one unnatural thing,

136:8.3 J. decided that it would not and cited the presence

136:8.4 J. had traveled much; he recalled Rome, Alexandria,

136:8.4 He knew the methods of the world—how people

136:8.4 Would he utilize this knowledge in the furtherance

136:8.4 No! He likewise decided against all compromise with

136:8.4 He chose to depend exclusively on the Father’s will.

136:8.5 J. was fully aware of the short cuts open to one of

136:8.5 He knew many ways in which the attention of the

136:8.5 He could ascend the pinnacle of the temple and

136:8.5 But he would subsequently disappoint them since

136:8.5 he had not come to re-establish David’s throne.

136:8.5 And he knew the futility of the Caligastia method of

136:8.6 J. chose to establish the kingdom in the hearts of

136:8.6 J. was now passing through the great test of civilized

136:8.7 endowments of J. were of natural acquirement.

136:8.7 He was the product of the hereditary and

136:8.8 J. portrayed to all the worlds of his vast universe

136:8.8 J. decided that he would not lend his mission on

136:8.8 He refused to prostitute his divine attributes for

136:8.8 He would not countenance the transmutation of

136:8.8 J. of Nazareth refused to compromise with evil,

136:9.1 he turned his attention to the choice of methods to

136:9.1 this work; how might he continue the message?

136:9.1 How should he take over John’s mission?

136:9.1 How should he organize his followers for effective

136:9.1 J. was now reaching the final decision which

136:9.1 he further regard himself as the Jewish Messiah,

136:9.2 J. knew that this hope would never be realized.

136:9.2 He knew that the kingdom of heaven had to do with

136:9.2 He thought out the advisability of inaugurating the

136:9.4 J. perceived what kind of a truth-revealer he was

136:9.4 He discerned that God’s way was not going to be

136:9.4 He began to realize that the cup of the remainder of

136:9.4 might possibly be bitter, but he decided to drink it.

136:9.7 contention, and slaughter was repugnant to J.;

136:9.7 The idea of battle was repugnant to J.; he would

136:9.7 He would appear on earth as the Prince of Peace to

136:9.7 Before his baptism he had again refused the offer

136:9.7 And now he made his final decision regarding those

136:9.8 J. reached the conclusion that such utterances did

136:9.8 once and for all he decided upon his course.

136:9.8 He would return to Galilee and quietly begin the

136:9.9 By these decisions J. set a worthy example for every

136:9.9 he refused to apply material tests to prove spiritual

136:9.9 when he refused presumptuously to defy natural laws

136:9.9 And he set an inspiring example of universe loyalty

136:9.9 he refused to grasp temporal power as the prelude

136:9.11 J. has formulated a program for the establishment of

136:9.11 He will not cater to the physical gratification of the

136:9.11 He will not deal out bread to the multitudes as he has

136:9.11 He will not attract attention to himself by wonder-

136:9.11 Neither will he seek to win acceptance of a spiritual

136:9.12 J. sought to prevent his early followers alluding to

136:9.13 Throughout his public ministry he was confronted

136:9.13 request that he allow his followers to make him king

136:9.13 J. never departed from the decisions which he

137:0.1 J came down from the hills to rejoin John’s company

137:0.1 All that day J. mingled with the multitude.

137:0.1 He ministered to a lad who had injured himself in a

137:1.1 John’s leading disciples spent much time with J..

137:1.1 Andrew was profoundly impressed with J.; he

137:1.1 On the way back to John’s rendezvous he asked J.

137:1.1 And J., with hearty assurance, welcomed Andrew

137:1.3 Soon after J. and Andrew returned to the camp,

137:1.3 settled in his own mind that J. was the Teacher,

137:1.3 Andrew went on to say J. had accepted his proffer

137:1.3 suggested that he (Simon) likewise go to J. and

137:1.3 I have believed he was sent by God, but what about

137:1.3 Then Andrew beckoned to J. to draw aside while

137:1.4 besought J. to spend the night with them, to make

137:1.4 to make their house his home, and he had promised.

137:1.5 After J. had returned to Pella for the night, and

137:1.5 their long and futile searching in the hills for J..

137:1.5 They had known J. for some time, and they loved

137:1.5 They inquired where J. had gone and made haste

137:1.6 J. was asleep when they reached his abode, but

137:2.1 J. took leave of John the Baptist by the river near

137:2.2 That day, as J. and his four disciple-apostles

137:2.2 to Andrew and Ezra that J. was the Deliverer.

137:2.2 Andrew decided to follow J., but Ezra rejected the

137:2.2 This J. is a relative of John, and through much

137:2.2 those who believed in John but refused to accept J.

137:2.3 J. and his four disciple-apostles were well on their

137:2.3 J., looking ahead and up the road, saw one Philip

137:2.3 J. had known Philip aforetime, and he was also

137:2.3 kingdom of God, and he was delighted to greet J..

137:2.3 Philip had been an admirer of J. ever since he first

137:2.3 who lived at Cana of Galilee, did not know J..

137:2.4 associates of J. in the new kingdom and strongly

137:2.4 while J. was outlining to James the trip through

137:2.5 It suddenly dawned on Philip that J. was a great man

137:2.6 And Philip replied, “He is J. of Nazareth, the son

137:2.7 Philip led Nathaniel to J., who, looking benignly into

137:2.7 “You are right. He is indeed a master of men.

137:2.8 J. had now assembled one half of his future corps of

137:2.9 The associates of J. little understood why their

137:3.1 The next day J. sent his apostles on to Cana, since

137:3.1 he prepared to pay a hurried visit to his mother at

137:3.2 the new associates of J. told Joseph and other

137:3.2 gave free expression to their belief that J. was the

137:3.3 resurrected all her early hopes of J. as the Messiah,

137:3.4 J. arrived in Capernaum Monday night, but he did

137:3.4 but he did not go to his own home, where lived

137:3.4 he went directly to the home of Zebedee.

137:3.4 Once more he seemed to be comparatively cheerful

137:3.4 more like himself as he was during the earlier years

137:3.4 he had grown increasingly serious and self-contained

137:3.4 Now he seemed quite like his old self to all of them.

137:3.4 but he was once again lighthearted and joyful.

137:3.6 expected that J. would inaugurate his assumption

137:3.6 that he would do so with great power and sublime

137:3.7 How would he usher in the glory of the kingdom?

137:4.1 it appeared more like a public reception for J. than

137:4.1 he was most cordial to all, young and old, Jew and

137:4.1 when J. consented to lead the preliminary wedding

137:4.2 J. was now thoroughly self-conscious regarding his

137:4.2 With perfect poise he could at one moment enact the

137:4.3 J. became increasingly conscious that the people

137:4.3 especially he recognized that his family and his six

137:4.4 to approach J. to inquire if he would admit them to

137:4.4 at what hour he had planned to manifest himself as

137:4.4 No sooner had they spoken of these matters to J.

137:4.5 mother was a great disappointment to the human J.,

137:4.5 he was much sobered by his reaction to her proposal

137:4.5 proposal that he permit himself to indulge in some

137:4.5 That was one of the very things he had decided not

137:4.5 and Jude tried to comfort their mother, while J.

137:4.5 But he returned to the gathering and was once more

137:4.6 he called them together just before the wedding

137:4.7 associated with the expected manifestation of J. as

137:4.7 —I will speak to my son. He will help us.”

137:4.8 Mary had always turned to J. for help in every crisis

137:4.8 As J. was standing alone in a corner of the garden,

137:4.9 Mary the mother of J. was crushed; she was stunned

137:4.9 human heart of J. was overcome with compassion

137:4.9 he laid his hand tenderly upon her head, saying:

137:4.9 Father’s will—” and J. stopped short, he hesitated.

137:4.9 But J. said nothing.

137:4.9 He now realized that he had already said—or rather

137:4.10 The wine Mary desired and which J., the God-man,

137:4.11 he observed that they were drawing wine out of

137:4.12 It was gradually dawning upon J what had happened

137:4.12 marriage feast of Cana, J. was the most surprised.

137:4.12 but that was just what he had purposed not to do.

137:4.12 He recounted how the Adjuster had warned him

137:4.14 since J. had already subjected himself in all things to

137:4.16 Mary and the disciples of J. were greatly rejoiced

137:4.16 the supposed miracle which they thought J. had

137:4.16 but J. withdrew to a sheltered nook of the garden

137:4.16 He finally decided that the episode was beyond his

137:4.16 When he returned to the people, they regarded him

137:4.16 But J. was sorely perplexed, knowing that they

137:4.16 Again J. retired for a season to the housetop that

137:4.17 J. now fully comprehended that he must constantly

137:5.1 J., with his newly chosen disciple-apostles—James,

137:5.1 much distressed because he so suddenly left them,

137:5.1 J. and his apostles went directly to the home of

137:5.1 J. talked over many things of importance to the

137:5.1 He advised them to avoid the cities of Sepphoris

137:5.2 to Bethsaida with J., walking, as it were, on air.

137:5.2  J. set out to make clear to them who he was and

137:5.2 They could not grasp what he was telling them.

137:5.2 When J. perceived that they did not comprehend his

137:5.2 when he saw that their ideas of the Jewish Messiah

137:5.2 he sent them to their rest while he walked and talked

137:5.2 before Jude took leave of J., he said with much

137:5.3 That night J. did not sleep.

137:5.3 Donning his evening wraps, he sat out on the lake

137:5.3  J. came clearly to comprehend that he never

137:5.3 he never would be able to make his followers see

137:5.3 he recognized that there was no way to launch his

137:5.3 though he was not the Davidic type of Messiah, he

137:5.3 he was truly the fulfillment of the prophetic

137:5.3 Never again did he wholly deny that he was the

137:5.3 He decided to leave the final untangling of this

137:5.4  J. joined his friends at breakfast, but they were a

137:5.4 He visited with them and at the end of the meal

137:5.4 He directed his apostles to return to their nets while

137:5.4 he made ready to go with Zebedee to the boatshop,

137:5.4 next day at the synagogue, where he was to speak,

137:6.1  J. gave seats of honor to his six apostles, and

137:6.2 When J. stood up, the ruler of the synagogue handed

137:6.2 he read from the Prophet Isaiah: “Thus says the Lord

137:6.3 When he finished this reading, J. handed the roll

137:6.4  J. and his apostles, with James and Jude, entered a

137:6.4 they anchored while he talked to them about the

137:6.5  J. instructed them to take up their regular duties

137:6.5 he set an example by going back regularly to work

137:6.6 J., standing by the water’s edge, prayed: “My Father

137:7.1  J. held over one hundred long and earnest, though

137:7.2 brother in the flesh, were getting acquainted with J.;

137:7.2  J. possessed that matchless grace of personality

137:7.2 and by the gracious words which he spoke to them

137:7.3 to persuade J. to launch forth with the preaching

137:7.3 was impressed with the human naturalness of J..

137:7.4 entire period J. spoke in the synagogue but twice.

137:7.4  J. saw to it that no more apparent miracles happened

137:7.4 reports of the strange doings of J. had been carried

137:7.4 in turn sent spies to ascertain what he was about.

137:7.4 Herod decided not to molest J., whose work

137:7.5 J. endeavored to teach his associates what their

137:7.12 But J. was very positive in making it clear that he

137:7.13  J. later directed that the apostles should go forth, as

137:7.13 he laid emphasis on the proclamation of the “good

137:7.13 He unfailingly impressed upon his associates that

137:7.13 He early taught his followers that the kingdom was a

137:7.14  J. and the seven spent two evenings each week at the

137:7.14  J. taught these men all they could assimilate.

137:7.14 He did not make the mistake of overteaching them.

137:7.14 He did not precipitate confusion by the presentation

137:8.1  J. occupied the synagogue pulpit for the second time

137:8.2 as J. was at work in the boatshop, Peter brought him

137:8.2  J. laid down his tools once more, removed his apron,

137:8.3  J. did his last work at the carpenter bench on this

137:8.3 in a grove by the shore, he went in quest of J..

137:8.3 The next day he sent his brother James to ask for the

137:8.3 pleased that J. was willing to conduct the service.

137:8.4 Before J. preached this memorable sermon on the

137:8.4 he read from the Scriptures these passages: “You

137:8.5 When he had finished reading, J. said: “ I have come

137:8.18 When he had thus spoken, he sat down.

137:8.18 many truly believing that he “was beside himself.”

138:0.1 J. called the six apostles together that afternoon

138:0.1  J. planned to have no close relatives as members

138:0.1 an ever-widening gulf between J. and his family.

138:1.1 J. imparted his final instructions to the six.

138:1.1 He directed them to go forth, two and two, to teach

138:1.1 He forbade them to baptize and advised against

138:1.1 He went on to explain that later he would permit

138:1.1 he desired them to acquire practical experience in

138:1.1  J. purposed to make their first tour entirely one of

138:1.1 He sent them forth by twos, James and John going

138:1.2 J. announced to them that he desired to ordain

138:1.2 After thus speaking, J. left them. The six did not

138:1.3 They knew they were going to miss J., and besides

138:1.4  J. went over to Nazareth to visit with Joseph and

138:1.4  J. did everything humanly possible, consistent with

138:1.4 In this matter he did his full duty and more.

138:1.5  J. thought much about John, now in prison.

138:1.5 he resigned himself to “wait upon the Father’s will.”

138:2.1 They returned to J. more fully realizing that religion

138:2.1 When they assembled about J, they all wanted to talk

138:2.2  J., after each man had presented his selection for the

138:2.2 Then J. announced that they would all visit these

138:2.10  J. spent a full day with the six, answering their

138:3.1  J. and the six went to call upon Matthew,

138:3.1 forward with J., who, looking into Matthew’s face,

138:3.1 And Matthew arose and went to his house with J.

138:3.2 Matthew told J. of the banquet he had arranged for

138:3.2 if J. would approve and consent to be the guest of

138:3.2 And J. nodded his consent.

138:3.3 When Peter led J. up to Simon, the Master greeted

138:3.6 Pharisees began, in their hearts, to criticize J. for his

138:3.6 teach that this man is righteous when he eats with

138:3.6 Peter whispered this criticism to J. because he spoke

138:3.7 knowing that J. did not want the coming kingdom to

138:3.8 J. and the apostles remained that night in Matthew’s

138:3.8 but one thing: the goodness and friendliness of J..

138:4.1 The fisherman twins were expecting J. and his

138:4.2  J. fully instructed them concerning attendance

138:4.3  J. gave his apostles their first lesson dealing with the

138:4.3 they could not comprehend the import of what he

138:4.3 They found it very easy to love and admire J. but

138:5.1 Judas the wanderer met J. and the apostles at the

138:5.2 J. took the twelve apart for a season to pray with

138:5.2 wonderful truths which he endeavored to teach them

138:5.2 They could not grasp the idea that J. had come to

138:5.2 that he was a new revelation of the Father in heaven.

138:5.3 The next day, J. left his twelve apostles quite alone;

138:5.3 he wanted them to become acquainted and desired

138:5.3 they be alone to talk over what he had taught them.

138:5.3 he talked to them about the ministry of seraphim,

138:5.4 so that their large home could be turned over to J.

138:5.4 Here J. spent a quiet Sabbath with his chosen

138:5.4 he carefully outlined the plans for proclaiming the

138:5.4 Judas Iscariot took J. aside to inquire why nothing

138:6.2 J. established the mid-week holiday for rest and

138:6.2 On this weekly holiday J. would usually take

138:6.2 While J. did not actually require this day of rest,

138:6.2 he conformed to this plan because he knew it was

138:6.2 J. was the teacher—the Master; his associates were

138:6.3 J. endeavored to make clear to his apostles the

138:6.3 again they did not understand why he thus spoke,

138:6.3 and no man dared to ask why he so taught them.

138:6.4 J. sought to avoid controversies with his apostles

138:6.4 In all such matters he never hesitated to correct

138:6.4 J. was the pioneer of the new and better way to God

138:6.5 J. had a perfect grasp of the situation;

138:6.5 he possessed unlimited power, which might have

138:6.5 he was wholly content with means and personalities

138:6.5 He was engaged in a mission of enormous dramatic

138:6.5 but he insisted on going about his Father’s business

138:6.5 he studiously avoided all display of power.

138:6.5 And he now planned to work quietly, at least for

138:7.1 J. had planned for a quiet missionary campaign of

138:7.1 He did not tell the apostles how long this was to last;

138:7.1 just as he was about to announce this to his twelve

138:7.1 Taking J. aside, Peter made bold to say: “Master, we

138:7.1 but J. raised an admonitory hand and stopped him.

138:7.2 J. sent them away two and two to pray, asking them

138:7.2 and they returned to J. as he had bidden them.

138:7.3 J. now recounted for them the coming of John,

138:7.3 They all truly believed in J., even though they did

138:7.4 J. now asked them how much money they had

138:7.4 he inquired as to what provision had been made for

138:7.4 J. designed later on to enter upon more aggressive

138:7.5 even J. was an experienced boatman and fisherman.

138:7.6 J. enjoined them to devote themselves to fishing

138:7.6 J. going out with a different group each night.

138:7.6 And they all so much enjoyed J.!

138:7.6 He was a good fisherman, a cheerful companion,

138:7.6 the more they worked with him, the more they loved

138:8.1 The first two weeks J. went out with Andrew and

138:8.1 In this way he was able to go out at least once with

138:8.1 each couple before he called them together for the

138:8.2 J. taught them to preach the forgiveness of sin

138:8.2 He enjoined his apostles to refrain from discussing:

138:8.7 people marveled at the teaching and ministry of J.

138:8.8 J. made plain to his apostles the difference between

138:8.8 faith—the new birth—which he required as the price

138:8.8 He taught his apostles that faith was the only

138:8.8 J. taught, “Faith is the open door for entering into

138:8.8 J. did not speak like a prophet, one who comes to

138:8.8 He seemed to speak of himself as one having

138:8.8 J. sought to divert their minds from miracle

138:8.9 Nothing ever seemed so important to J. as the

138:8.9 He was master and teacher, but he was more—

138:8.9 —he was also a friend and neighbor, and comrade.

138:8.10 he invariably taught his apostles by questions and

138:8.10 He would always pause to answer sincere questions

138:8.11 he made it very clear to them that women were to be

138:9.1 It was their personal association with J. during

138:9.1 them and had been so devoted to them as had J..

138:9.1 These five months of work with J. led these apostles

138:9.2 By the time J. was prepared to launch forth on his

138:9.2 came near to believing that he was beside himself.

138:10.3 John were appointed personal companions of J..

139:0.1 although he repeatedly dashed to pieces the hopes of

139:0.2 The apostles learned from J. about the kingdom of

139:0.2 J. learned much from them about the kingdom of

139:1.2 Andrew was 33, a year older than J. and the oldest

139:1.2 J. never gave Andrew a nickname, a fraternal

139:1.2 even as the apostles soon began to call J. Master,

139:1.3 but his appointment by J. as the head of the apostolic

139:1.4 Andrew brought to J. his brother, Simon, who

139:1.5 Whether J. privately taught the apostles or preached

139:1.5 in which event Andrew would take it straight to J..

139:1.11 Every one of the apostles loved J.,but it remains true

139:1.11 Andrew admired J because of his consistent sincerity

139:1.11 When men once knew J., they were possessed with

139:2.2 When J. gave Simon the name Peter, he did it with

139:2.2 True, later on, J. did attach a new and significant

139:2.4 their astonishment at seeing J. on the beach, Peter

139:2.5 The one trait which Peter most admired in J. was his

139:2.5 Peter’s unintended denial of J. in the high priest’s

139:2.6 First Peter refused to let J. wash his feet and then,

139:2.6 J. knew that Peter’s faults were of the head and

139:2.6 Peter really and truly loved J.. And yet despite this

139:2.9 In following J., literally and figuratively, Peter was

139:2.10 When Peter was fully assured that J. had forgiven

139:2.13 mistake of trying to convince the Jews that J. was

139:2.13 confusion in Peter’s mind between the concepts of J.

139:2.15 so Peter, an intimate of J., one of the inner circle,

139:3.1 two apostle sons of Zebedee, whom J. nicknamed

139:3.1 the advantage of having known J. longer than any

139:3.3 James usually talked freely with J., but among the

139:3.6 That characteristic of J. which James most admired

139:3.8 places on the right hand and the left hand of J.,

139:3.8 When J. asked if they were ready to drink the cup,

139:3.9 James’s death to join himself to the disciples of J..

139:4.1 John functioned as the personal agent of J. in dealing

139:4.1 this responsibility as long as Mary the mother of J.

139:4.2 so closely associated with J. in his family affairs,

139:4.2 said that he was “the disciple whom J. loved.”

139:4.2 such a magnanimous personality as J. to be guilty

139:4.2 John was one of the three personal aides of J. lent

139:4.2 John, along with his brother James, had known J.

139:4.3 James, and John were assigned as personal aides to J

139:4.3 J. appointed Andrew to act as director of the group,

139:4.3 that Peter, James, and John attach themselves to J..

139:4.4 J. made many and great changes in John’s character.

139:4.4 to refer to himself as the “disciple whom J. loved.”

139:4.4 John came nearer to being the chum of J. than any

139:4.4 to regard himself as the “disciple whom J. loved”

139:4.4 John was the disciple whom J. so frequently trusted.

139:4.6 characteristics of J. which John most appreciated

139:4.9 he had made provision for the care of his mother

139:4.9 John also deeply sympathized with J. because of his

139:4.10 the one apostle who followed right along with J.

139:5.1 being called when J. and his first four apostles were

139:5.1 Philip had for some time known of J., but it had not

139:5.1 not occurred to Philip that J. was a really great man

139:5.1 day in the Jordan valley when he said, “Follow me.”

139:5.1 James, and John had accepted J. as the Deliverer.

139:5.5 the multitudes who came to hear J. teach and preach

139:5.5 J. learned much about the way some human minds

139:5.5 he so patiently listened to Philip’s foolish questions

139:5.6 The one quality about J. which Philip so admired

139:5.6 Never could Philip find anything in J. which was

139:5.7 Philip would not hesitate to interrupt J. in the

139:5.7 But J. never reprimanded Philip for such

139:5.7 he was patient with him and considerate of his

139:5.7 J. well knew that, if he once rebuked Philip for

139:5.7 he would not only wound this honest soul, but such

139:5.7 J. knew that on his worlds of space there were

139:5.7 similar slow-thinking mortals, and he wanted to

139:5.7 J. was really more interested in Philip’s foolish

139:5.7 in Philip’s foolish questions than in the sermon he

139:5.7 J. was supremely interested in men, all kinds of

139:5.8 to argue about the merits and demerits of J. and

139:5.9 at Jerusalem, saying: “Sir, we desire to see J..”

139:5.9 then they both escorted the inquiring Greeks to J..

139:6.1 Nathaniel was brought to J. by his friend Philip.

139:6.1 to see John the Baptist when they encountered J..

139:6.3 J. did not himself give Nathaniel a nickname, but

139:6.3 even before he had met J., “Can any good thing

139:6.4 J. greatly enjoyed hearing Nathaniel discourse on

139:6.4 Nathaniel progressively took J. and the kingdom

139:6.5 the temerity to go secretly to J. and lodge complaint

139:6.6 Many times, when J. was away on the mountain with

139:6.8 Nathaniel most revered J. for his tolerance.

139:7.2 Levi was an increasing believer in the mission of J.

139:7.2 J never gave Levi a nickname, but his fellow apostles

139:7.3 That Matthew, a publican, had been taken in by J.

139:7.5 who made extensive notes on the sayings of J.,

139:7.5 Isador’s narrative of the sayings and doings of J.,

139:7.6 but Matthew was intensely loyal to J. and supremely

139:7.7 and despairing men and women flocked to hear J.,

139:7.7 flocked to hear J., and he never turned one away.

139:7.8 but they never knew of this generosity, save J.,

139:7.8 to contribute to the apostolic funds for fear that J.

139:7.9 But Levi did so wish that J. might know that much

139:8.3 thus came in contact with the noble character of J..

139:8.5 contact with J and the apostles largely cured Thomas

139:8.6 J. enjoyed Thomas very much and had many talks

139:8.6 about the philosophic phases of the teachings of J..

139:8.6 a declaration that J. loved even honest doubters.

139:8.7 The other apostles held J. in reverence because of

139:8.7 understanding and personality appreciation of J.

139:8.8 Time and again did Thomas oppose letting J. expose

139:8.10 tried to avoid coming in direct contact with J..

139:8.12 he was the acid test of J. and his fellow apostles.

139:8.12 If J. and his work had not been genuine, it could

139:8.13 was present with them to welcome J. on the Sea of

139:9.2 They loved their Master and J. loved them, but they

139:9.6 James Alpheus especially loved J. because of the

139:9.6 These twins could not comprehend the mind of J.,

139:9.6 The twins believed in J.; they were sons of God and

139:9.7 Judas Alpheus was drawn toward J. because of the

139:9.7 The fact that J would always enjoin silence regarding

139:9.8 J. welcomed these young men of one talent to

139:9.8 whom he likewise wishes to welcome into active and

139:9.8 J. does not look down upon littleness, only upon

139:9.9 they knew of a certainty that J. was no respecter of

139:9.10 their association with J. did the twins venture to ask

139:9.10 Judas was once intrigued into asking J. a question

139:9.11 They never lost their heart faith in J. and (save John)

139:11.4 transformation, but J. was always patient with Simon

139:11.5 The one thing about J. which Simon admired was

139:11.7 an iconoclast by training, but J. won Simon for the

139:11.7 personal devotions, and he did profoundly love J..

139:11.8 J. was not afraid to identify with business men,

139:11.9 J. often told Simon that it was proper to want to

139:11.11 everywhere preaching the gospel of J. and baptizing

139:12.4 There was no special trait about J. which Judas

139:12.4 even criticize in his mind many things about J..

139:12.4 Judas really entertained the notion that J. was timid

139:12.5 manage the financial affairs of such an idealist as J.,

139:12.5 Judas must have believed in J.,but we doubt whether

139:12.7 To J., Judas was a faith adventure.

139:12.7 J. wanted not only the mortals of this world but the

139:12.8 This is just the reason why J. permitted Judas to go

139:12.10 public protest was so sweepingly disallowed by J.

139:12.10 sordid drama of his unfortunate life just because J.

139:12.11 J. did everything possible, consistent with man’s

139:12.12 the idea that J. might possibly exert his power and

139:12.14 J. regarded the betrayer only with pity.

140:0.1 J. called the apostles together for their ordination as

140:0.2 As J. started down the seashore calling the apostles,

140:0.2 he first hailed Andrew and Peter, who were fishing

140:0.2 he signaled to James and John, who were in a boat

140:0.2 Two by two he gathered up the other apostles,

140:0.2 and when he had assembled all twelve, he journeyed

140:0.2 he journeyed with them to the highlands north of

140:0.2 he proceeded to instruct them in preparation for their

140:1.1 Before the formal ordination service J. spoke to the

140:1.7 And when he had finished speaking, he stood up.

140:2.1 J. now instructed the twelve mortals who had just

140:2.3 When J. had finished praying, the apostles remained

140:2.3 One by one they embraced J., but no man said aught.

140:3.21 Never before had the apostles heard J. speak in this

140:3.21 for he had talked to them as one having supreme

140:3.21 about sundown, but no man asked J. a question.

140:4.1 The “Sermon of the Mount” is not the gospel of J..

140:4.1 as he was so eloquently and perfectly representative

140:4.9 J exhorted his followers to exercise experiential faith

140:4.9 He admonished them not to depend on intellectual

140:5.1 J. taught his followers to manifest fatherly love

140:5.1 you should love your fellow mortals as J. loves you.

140:5.2 J. loves mankind with a dual affection.

140:5.2 He lived on earth as a twofold personality—human

140:5.2 As the Son of God he loves man with a fatherly love

140:5.2 —he is man’s Creator, his universe Father.

140:5.2 As the Son of Man, J. loves mortals as a brother—

140:5.2 —he was truly a man among men.

140:5.3 J. did not expect his followers to achieve an

140:5.3 but he did expect them to so strive to be like God—

140:5.3 J. sought to reveal this new concept of fatherly

140:5.11 J. was the ideal meek man of Urantia, and he

140:5.11 man of Urantia, and he inherited a vast universe.

140:5.12 In discussing purity, J. did not intend to deal

140:5.12 He referred more to that faith which man should

140:5.15 J. went on to instruct his followers in the realization

140:5.15 He did not exhort the twelve to love their neighbors

140:5.15 He rather admonished his apostles to love men as

140:5.15 as he had loved them—to love with a fatherly as well

140:5.15 he illustrated this by pointing out four supreme

140:5.16 But J. did not refer to outward or ostentatious

140:5.16 He alluded to an emotional attitude of tenderhearted

140:6.1 J. and the twelve partook of a simple meal.

140:6.1 while J. went for a walk along the beach, the twelve

140:6.1 Andrew went out to find J., and when he had

140:6.1 And J. went with Andrew to meet with the apostles.

140:6.2 When he had entered the garden, he gathered the

140:5.18 In the face of trials and persecutions he said, “My

140:6.6 J. was minded to go on discussing the other

140:6.7 the twelve could not comprehend all that he taught

140:6.13 Thomas asked J. if they should “continue having

140:6.14 When J. saw they were disposed to stay up all night

140:6.14 encouraged, James decided to go in to talk with J..

140:6.14 Andrew went in to J. and said: “Master, the twins

140:7.1 twelve were assembled for a late breakfast with J.,

140:7.1 After J. had spoken, Thomas mustered up courage

140:7.2 spectators, had been coming to Bethsaida to see J.

140:7.2 Heretofore, J. had greeted these people and taught

140:7.3 J. visited with Zebedee and Salome while he sent his

140:8.1 J. well knew that his apostles were not fully

140:8.1 He decided to give some special instruction to

140:8.1 He saw that, while some features of the idea of a

140:8.1 J. went out from the shore in a boat with Peter,

140:8.2 He quoted with approval, on this afternoon, an old

140:8.2 He pointed to his own experience as sufficient

140:8.3 J. made clear to the three the difference between

140:8.3 And even then he did not forbid the exercise of

140:8.3 What he preached against was not forethought but

140:8.3 He taught the active and alert submission to God’s

140:8.3 he simply called attention to his life as carpenter,

140:8.3 He sought to make it clear that the world is not to

140:8.4 J. had great difficulty in getting them to understand

140:8.4 He absolutely refused to defend himself, and it

140:8.4 he would be pleased if they would pursue the same

140:8.4 He taught them not to resist evil, not to combat

140:8.4 he did not teach passive tolerance of wrongdoing.

140:8.4 And he made it plain that he approved of the social

140:8.5 He never ceased to warn his disciples against the

140:8.5 he made no allowance for revenge, the idea of

140:8.5 He deplored the holding of grudges.

140:8.5 He disallowed the idea of an eye for an eye and a

140:8.5 He discountenanced the whole concept of private

140:8.5 He made it clear to the three that his teachings

140:8.5 He summarized his instructions up to that time

140:8.9 He cautioned his apostles to be discreet in their

140:8.9 he forbade them to become in any way embroiled

140:8.9 He was always careful to avoid the political snares

140:8.9 He refused to have his attention diverted from his

140:8.9 he would not permit himself to be concerned about

140:8.9 In his personal life he was always duly observant of

140:8.9 he ignored the civic, social, and economic realms.

140:8.9 He told the three apostles that he was concerned

140:8.10 J. was not, therefore, a political reformer.

140:8.10 He did not come to reorganize the world; even if

140:8.10 if he had done this, it would have been applicable

140:8.10 he did show man the best way of living, and no

140:8.11 J. came presenting the idea of active kindness,

140:8.11 J. was interested only in the individual, not the

140:8.11 J. was not a sociologist, but he did labor to break

140:8.11 He taught pure sympathy, compassion.

140:8.12 J. had a firm sense of justice, but it was always

140:8.12 He did not teach his apostles that they were to be

140:8.12 The nearest he came to making sociological

140:8.13 He made it clear that indiscriminate kindness may be

140:8.13 J. definitely instructed Judas that no apostolic funds

140:8.14 He based his teachings about God on the family,

140:8.14 while he sought to correct the Jewish tendency to

140:8.14 He called attention to the fact that the family is a

140:8.14 J. did not hesitate to give up his family when the

140:8.14 He taught the new and larger brotherhood of man

140:8.14 He repeatedly refused to lay down laws regarding

140:8.15 J. worked, lived, and traded in the world as he found

140:8.15 He was not an economic reformer, although he did

140:8.15 he did frequently call attention to the injustice of

140:8.15 he did not offer any suggestions by way of remedy.

140:8.15 He made it plain to the three that, while his apostles

140:8.15 he was not preaching against wealth and property,

140:8.15 He recognized the need for social justice and

140:8.15 fairness, but he offered no rules for their attainment.

140:8.16 He never taught his followers to avoid earthly

140:8.16 J. never personally directed his followers to adopt a

140:8.16 he made no pronouncement of any sort regarding

140:8.17 J. warned his listeners against covetousness,

140:8.17 He constantly reiterated, “What shall it profit a man

140:8.17 He made no direct attack on the possession of

140:8.17 he did insist that it is eternally essential that spiritual

140:8.17 he sought to correct many erroneous Urantia views

140:8.17 parables which he presented in the course of his

140:8.17 J. never intended to formulate economic theories;

140:8.17 he well knew that each age must evolve its own

140:8.17 And if J. were on earth today, living his life in the

140:8.17 he would be a great disappointment to the majority

140:8.17 he would not take sides in present-day political,

140:8.17 He would remain grandly aloof while teaching you

140:8.18 J. would make all men Godlike and then stand by

140:8.18 It was not wealth that he denounced,but what wealth

140:8.18 On this Thursday J. first told his associates that “it is

140:8.19 He lived a perfected life on Urantia, and his unique

140:8.20 J. did not attack the teachings of the Hebrew

140:8.20 J. did not want simply to produce a religious man,

140:8.20 you would have known that J. was a real man of

140:8.20 The teachings of J. in this respect have been

140:8.20 The teachings of J. constitute a religion of valor,

140:8.20 And this is just why he chose as his personal

140:8.21 J. had little to say about the social vices of his day;

140:8.21 seldom did he make reference to moral delinquency.

140:8.21 He was a positive teacher of true virtue.

140:8.21 He studiously avoided the negative method of

140:8.21 he refused to advertise evil.

140:8.21 He was not even a moral reformer.

140:8.21 He well knew, and so taught his apostles, that the

140:8.22 J. did not vehemently denounce even the Pharisees,

140:8.22 He knew many of the scribes and Pharisees were

140:8.22 he understood their enslaving bondage to religious

140:8.22 J. laid great emphasis on “first making the tree

140:8.22 He impressed the three that he valued the whole life,

140:8.25 J. wanted his children on earth to live as though they

140:8.26 J. always insisted that true goodness must be

140:8.27 All religions before and after the times of J., even

140:8.27 But not so with the religion of J. of Nazareth.

140:8.27 he taught character growth, declaring that the

140:8.27 But J. said nothing which would proscribe self-

140:8.29 The teaching of J. is a religion for everybody, not

140:8.29 His religion never became crystallized (during his

140:8.29 he left not a line of writing behind him.

140:8.29 His life and teachings were bequeathed the universe

140:8.30 J. did not teach his apostles that religion is man’s

140:8.30 But he did insist that religion was the exclusive

140:8.30 J. taught nothing to deter his believers from the

140:8.30 he only detracted from the tradition-bound religious

140:8.30 He was liberal, big-hearted, learned, and tolerant.

140:8.31 J. wished to develop spiritual insight into eternal

140:8.31 He revealed a goodness equal to God.

140:8.31 He exalted love—truth, beauty, and goodness—as the

140:9.1 The next Sabbath day J. devoted to his apostles,

140:9.1 back to the highland where he had ordained them;

140:9.1 the day when he would be compelled to leave them

140:9.2 J. reviewed many features of the ordination sermon,

140:9.2 he commissioned them to go forth in the world as

140:9.3 J. advised them to take neither money nor extra

140:10.1 J. talked at great length, trying to show the twelve

140:10.1 But J. would reiterate, “In the kingdom you must be

140:10.3 that he was doing a work on this world but for all

140:10.3 J. lived his earth life on Urantia, not to set a

140:10.4 Thomas asked J.: “Master, you say that we must

140:10.5 J. had the talk with Matthew in which he explained

140:10.5 he explained that the morality of any act is

140:10.6 This new religion of J. was not without its practical

140:10.5 J. stripped morality of all rules and ceremonies

140:10.7 After J. and Matthew had finished talking, Simon

140:10.7 J. taught his followers to treat all men as brothers.

140:10.9 asked J., “Master, what is the kingdom of heaven?”

141:0.1 J. and the twelve apostles made ready to depart

141:0.2 he found J. sitting in a boat down the beach, and

141:0.2 sitting in a boat down the beach, and he was weeping

141:0.2 to approach J. and ask: “On this great day, Master,

141:1.1 the fame of J. had begun to spread well over all of

141:1.1 J. knew that Herod would soon begin to take notice

141:1.1 so he thought best to journey south and into Judea

141:1.2 year before, and where J. had received baptism.

141:1.3 J. did no public preaching.

141:1.3 after the evening meal J. talked with the twelve.

141:1.3 He taught them nothing new but reviewed his former

141:3.3 the disciples of John and the newer disciples of J..

141:3.3 J. refused to participate these conferences; neither

141:3.3 neither would he give any advice about the proper

141:3.3 He never once offered a suggestion as to how the

141:3.3 When Andrew came to J. with these questions, he

141:3.4 J. was truly a master of men; he exercised great

141:3.4 he exercised great influence over his fellow men

141:3.4 He was simple, manly, honest, and fearless.

141:3.5 J. was indeed a strong and forceful personality;

141:3.5 he was an intellectual power and spiritual stronghold

141:3.6 The pictures of J. have been most unfortunate.

141:3.6 temple merchants would hardly have fled before J. if

141:3.6 His was a dignified manhood; he was good,

141:3.6 J. did not pose as a mild, sweet, gentle, and kindly

141:3.6 He not only meant well, but he went about doing

141:3.8 J. portrayed conquest by sacrifice, the sacrifice of

141:3.8 By showing mercy, he meant to portray spiritual

141:3.8 when he said, “Resist not evil,” he later explained

141:3.8 he did not mean to condone sin or to counsel

141:3.8 He intended the more to teach forgiveness,

141:4.4 J. told his associates about the forms of affliction

141:4.4 He taught them to recognize: 1. Disease of the flesh

141:4.8 J. explained to his apostles on several occasions

141:4.8 the early history of Urantia, for J. to undertake to

141:4.8 But he many times said to them, alluding to these

141:5.4 during the training of the twelve J. reverted to this

141:5.4 Repeatedly he told them it was not his desire that

141:5.4 Again and again he warned his apostles against the

141:6.1 Simon brought to J. one Teherma, a Persian doing

141:6.1 Teherma had heard of J. and had come to

141:6.1 learning that J. had gone with his apostles down

141:6.1 After talking with J., the Persian signified his

141:6.3 but Simon did as J. had instructed him, and Teherma

141:6.4 J. discoursed to the apostles on the new life in the

141:6.5 they were very much disappointed that J. would give

141:7.1 J., his apostles, and a large group of followers

141:7.3 J. endeavored to make clear that he desired his

141:7.4 these essential revelations are accomplished in J..

141:7.6 J. laid great emphasis upon what he called the two

141:7.6 J. was the truth made manifest in the flesh, and he

141:7.6 J. promised to send his Spirit of Truth into the hearts

141:7.8 J. explained that he had purposely ignored the “great

141:7.8 He began his work with the poor, the very class

141:7.8 He despised no man; his plan was world-wide,

141:7.8 J. was so bold and emphatic in these announcements

141:7.8 tempted to think he might possibly be beside himself.

141:7.9 He sought to impart to these apostles the truth that

141:7.9 that he had come on this bestowal mission, not to

141:7.10 He announced that he had come to function as a

141:7.10 And this is exactly what he did; he was a teacher,

141:7.10 he was a teacher, not a preacher.

141:7.10 Peter was a much more effective preacher than J..

141:7.10 J. spoke directly to men’s souls.

141:7.10 He was a teacher of man’s spirit, but through the

141:7.10 He lived with men.

141:7.11 It was on this occasion that J. intimated to Peter,

141:7.11 He told them that he had come to do his Father’s will

141:7.11 he was not anxiously bothered by evil in the world.

141:7.12 to recognize the unaffected friendliness of J..

141:7.13 James was astonished at how J. seemed to see the

141:7.14 all of his divine endowments, after all, he was human

141:7.14 J. lived as a man among men and understood, loved,

141:7.14 personal life he was so human, and yet so faultless.

141:7.14 And he was always unselfish.

141:7.15 John could not understand very much of what J. said

141:8.1 welcomed the more advanced teachings of J. and

141:8.3 from Mesopotamia that had come to confer with J..

141:8.3 J. spent three days with them, and they returned to

141:9.1 J. and the apostles began their journey up the hills

141:9.1 Lazarus had been down to the Jordan to see J.,

141:9.2 J. was accompanied only by the twelve when he

141:9.2 by the twelve when he arrived at Lazarus’s home.

141:9.2 Here J. and the apostles tarried for five days,

141:9.3 J. and the apostles went down to Jerusalem; and

142:0.1 J. and the apostles worked in Jerusalem, going out

142:0.1 J. himself spent one or two nights each week in

142:0.2 J. called upon his friend of former years, Annas,

142:0.2 Annas had been hearing about J. and his teachings

142:0.2 when J. called at the high priest’s home, he was

142:0.2 priest’s home, he was received with much reserve.

142:0.2 he took immediate leave, saying as he departed:

142:1.1 J. or one of the apostles taught daily in the temple.

142:1.6 heard this teaching of J., and hundreds of them

142:1.6 the Jews became much concerned about J. and his

142:1.7 No longer was the work of J. to be confined to

142:2.1 came to Andrew making request to see J. privately

142:2.1 Andrew arranged this secret meeting with J. at

142:2.1 Said Jacob to J.: “But, Rabbi, Moses and the olden

142:2.2 J. replied: “Jacob, you have well stated the

142:3.1 asked J. many questions about the Father in heaven.

142:3.2 J. mildly upbraided the twelve, in substance saying:

142:3.23 And when he had finished speaking, no man asked

142:4.1 When he first thought of inviting J. to his home,

142:4.1 But Flavius was agreeably surprised when J. entered

142:4.1 he manifested great interest in the entire collection

142:4.4 Flavius believed all that J. taught him.

142:4.4 the apostles of J. did not yet baptize believers.

142:4.4 Flavius made a great feast for J. and invited sixty of

142:5.1 One of the great sermons which J. preached in the

142:5.1 This man asked J.: “But, Rabbi, how shall we know

142:5.5 The throng of listeners remained many hours with J.,

142:6.1 there came to see J. one Nicodemus, a wealthy

142:6.1 Nicodemus went one afternoon to hear him as he

142:6.1 Nicodemus would have gone often to hear J. teach,

142:6.1 Jews so at variance with J. that no member of the

142:6.1 Nicodemus had arranged with Andrew to see J.

142:6.2 In receiving Nicodemus, J. showed no particular

142:6.2 visitor, J. was calm, earnest, and dignified.

142:6.2 Nicodemus came to see J. because of his personal

142:6.9 colleagues of the Sanhedrin sought to condemn J.

142:6.9 acknowledged his faith and claimed the body of J.,

142:7.1 J. spent the next Wednesday at Bethany with his

142:7.1 J. and the twelve spent all afternoon and all that

142:7.2 J. sought first to make plain to his apostles that he

142:7.2 he himself was on earth living a unique life in the

142:7.3 J. explained that the kingdom was an evolutionary

142:7.3 he definitely stated that at some future stage of

142:7.3 he would revisit this world in spiritual power and

142:7.4 He next explained that the “kingdom idea” was not

142:7.4 that he employed such figures of speech because the

142:7.4 then he explained that such a quality of brotherly

142:7.5 J. stated that a true family is founded on the seven

142:7.15 J. is a divine Son, one in the Universal Father’s full

142:7.15 He had been with the Father and comprehended him

142:7.15 He had now lived his earth life to the full satisfaction

142:7.15 J. was the perfection of man;

142:7.15 he had attained just such perfection as all true

142:7.15 J. revealed a God of perfection to man and presented

142:7.16 Although J. discoursed for several hours, Thomas

142:8.1 the opposition to J. among the Pharisees and

142:8.1 J. and Abner spent at Engedi, visiting the Nazarite

142:8.1 the Nazarite brotherhood became believers in J.,

142:8.1 because he did not teach fasting and other forms of

142:8.2 did not know that J. had been born in Bethlehem.

142:8.3 the agitation against J. had so quieted down in

142:8.4 Although J. and the apostles spent the entire

142:8.4 J. entered within the walls of Jerusalem only a few

142:8.4 one Joseph of Arimathea ventured out to see J.

142:8.4 did not perceive that J. knew all about their doings

142:8.5 When the rulers of the Jews learned that J. had

142:8.5 when they observed that he did no public preaching,

142:8.5 they concluded that he had become frightened by

142:8.5 Sanhedrin, publicly espoused the teachings of J.,

143:0.1 opposition of the Jewish religious rulers, J. and the

143:0.1 from Arimathea and Thamna came over to invite J.

143:0.2 The people of southern Samaria heard J. gladly,

143:0.2 The last week of July J. and his associates made

143:1.1 they met with new objections to the teachings of J.

143:1.1 J. listened attentively to these objections to the

143:1.3 After J. had heard similar objections to the gospel

143:1.8 This was not all that J. said on that occasion, but it

143:1.8 and he went on at great length in amplification and

143:1.8  addresses which J. ever delivered to the twelve.

143:2.2 asked J.: “Master, are we to practice self-denial as

143:3.1 the recent utterances of J. had augmented their

143:3.1 When J. had listened to the apostolic chief relate

143:3.3 J. seated them about him while he said: “My

143:3.4 —when he broke bread for their noontide lunch.

143:5.1 J. sat down by the well to await the return of the

143:5.2 J. was thirsty, but there was no way of getting water

143:5.2 This woman of Samaria knew J. was a Jew by his

143:5.2 Nalda surmised that he was a Galilean Jew from his

143:5.2 Nalda asked J., “How is it that you, being a Jew,

143:5.5 ashamed that she had so unthinkingly spoken to J.

143:5.6 J. perceived the attempt of the woman’s soul to

143:5.6 but he also saw that there was present in her soul a

143:5.6 he dealt patiently with her, saying: “Woman, let me

143:5.8 of his divine nature which J. had made on earth;

143:5.10 a crowd had assembled at Jacob’s well to hear J..

143:5.11 It was very difficult for J. to teach his apostles that

143:5.12 and J. did not speak of it in detail to the twelve.

143:5.13 Nalda told John that J. had told her “all I ever did.

143:5.13 John many times wanted to ask J. about this visit

143:5.13 J. told Nalda only one thing about herself, but his

143:5.13 J. never told Nalda she had had five husbands.

143:5.13 at the moment Nalda realized J. was a man of God

143:5.13 repeated to John that J. had really told her all

143:6.1 Nalda drew the crowd out from Sychar to see J.,

143:6.1 and they besought J. to eat with them instead of

143:6.1 But J. knew that darkness would soon be upon

143:6.1 so he persisted in his determination to talk to the

143:6.1 to talk to the people before he sent them away.

143:6.1 before he spoke to the people, he turned aside and

143:6.1 he turned aside and said to the twelve: “My meat is

143:6.1 This he said in reference to the preaching of John

143:6.2 J. and the apostles went into Sychar and preached

143:6.2 baptism, but the apostles of J. did not yet baptize.

143:6.3 the apostles expected that J. would rebuke them

143:6.3 but he made no reference to the matter.

143:6.3 Instead he gave them that memorable talk on

143:6.3 may be derived from the life and teachings of J.

143:6.4 That he wants all men to see God as a Father-friend

143:6.4 see God as a Father-friend just as he (J.) is a brother

143:6.4 And again he impressed upon them that love is the

143:6.5 J. declared himself so fully to the Samaritans because

143:6.5 to the Samaritans because he could safely do so,

143:6.5 he knew that he would not again visit the heart of

143:6.6 J. and the twelve camped on Mount Gerizim until

143:6.6 The work which J. and the twelve did in these

143:7.1 J. taught many great truths, and in particular he laid

143:7.1 in particular he laid emphasis on the following:

144:0.1 J. spent here alone with his apostles, teaching and

144:0.2 There were a number of reasons why J. and his

144:0.2 continued to entertain suspicions that John and J.

144:0.2 disciples and the apostles of J., which grew worse

144:0.3 J. knew that the days of the preliminary work of

144:0.3 he did not wish the launching of this undertaking to

144:0.3 J. had decided to spend some time in retirement

144:1.1 the twelve became more devoted to J. and

144:1.1 they did not fully comprehend the nature of J. or the

144:1.2 J. made it plain to his apostles that they were in

144:1.6 J. told the twelve much about his early life and his

144:1.6 he revealed something of what happened in the hills

144:1.6 he directly charged them that they should tell no

144:1.6 experiences until after he had returned to the Father.

144:1.7 recounted their experiences since J. first called

144:1.8 Much of this time J. was alone on the mountain near

144:1.8 Occasionally he took with him Peter, James, or John,

144:1.8 more often he went off to pray or commune alone.

144:1.8 Subsequent to the baptism of J. and the forty days in

144:1.8 nor is it consistent to speak of J. as worshiping,

144:1.9 J. delivered his memorable discourse on prayer in

144:1.10 J. never forbade his followers to use John’s form

144:1.10 longed to know what form of petition J. would

144:1.10 simple petition for the common people that J. at

144:1.10 J. gave this lesson one afternoon in the third week

144:3.1 they desired J. to give them a model prayer which

144:3.13 apostles desired J. to teach them a model prayer

144:3.13 J. was particularly averse to praying in public.

144:3.14 J. taught the twelve always to pray in secret; to go

144:3.15 by the addition of—“In the name of the Lord JC..”

144:3.16 J. gave the apostles the prayer in collective form as

144:3.16 He never taught a formal personal prayer, only group

144:3.16 And he never volunteered to do that.

144:3.17 J. taught that effective prayer must be: 1. Unselfish—

144:3.23 When J. spent nights on the mountain in prayer,

144:3.23 although he engaged in much worship of the nature

144:4.4 Prayer led J. up to the supercommunion of his soul

144:4.6 J. employed the beneficial influence of praying for

144:4.6 Only in the great crises of his earth life did J. ever

144:4.10 who so often accompanied J. on his long night vigils,

144:4.10 never heard J. pray, was because their Master so

144:5.1 he brought to the notice of the apostles several forms

144:5.1 but he did this only in illustration of other matters,

144:5.1 he enjoined that these “parable prayers” should not

144:5.1 planets, but this fact J. did not reveal to the twelve.

144:5.18 J. utilized these prayer models as illustrations in

144:6.1 at the Gilboa camp between the apostles of J. and

144:6.1 to be apostles, following the precedent of J..

144:6.1 J. was present at the Gilboa camp throughout the

144:6.2 prepared to go into council with the apostles of J..

144:6.2 J. mingled with them between their forenoon,

144:6.2 These talks by J. to the twenty-four were on

144:6.3 and again would they take their troubles to J.,

144:6.4 J. went down the mountainside, and they saw him

144:6.4 never knew where he went or what he did during

144:6.4 discussions, and they could not go to J. for help.

144:6.5 the adoption of the prayer which J. had taught them.

144:6.7 J. had refused to make any pronouncement upon

144:6.7 only the apostles of J. would finally instruct the

144:6.7 the apostles of John accompanied J. and his

144:6.8 present themselves to J. and become subject to his

144:6.8 baptize no more unless authorized by J. or his

144:6.9 the apostles of J. would begin to baptize with water

144:6.11 face problems and compose difficulties without J..

144:6.12 J. returned, heard of their deliberations, listened to

144:6.13 apostles of John remained with J. and the twelve.

144:7.1 J. and the twenty-four worked quietly in the Greek

144:7.1 Baptism was the price which the followers of J.

144:7.2 J. did little public teaching on this mission to the

144:7.2 He spent considerable time teaching the twenty-four

144:7.2 they became more understanding as to why J. did

144:7.2 and why he made no effort to secure his release.

144:7.2 But they never could understand why J. did no

144:7.2 why he refused to produce outward signs of his

144:7.2 they had believed in J. mostly because of John’s

144:7.3 The apostle of John baptized, the apostle of J.

144:7.4 Abner became a devout believer in J. and was later

144:8.1 It was while J. was teaching the multitude one

144:8.1 the last message which he ever had from the Baptist.

144:8.2 and most of this time J. had labored very quietly;

144:8.3 J. paused to say to John’s friends: “Go back and tell

144:8.5 Many who heard J. that day submitted themselves to

144:8.5 And the apostles of John were firmly knit to J. from

144:8.6 and John’s faith was strengthened by the words of J.

144:9.1 Pella, and they told J. about the death of John.

144:9.1 When J. heard their report, he dismissed the

144:9.2 J. and the apostles, accompanied by twenty-five

145:0.1 J. and the apostles arrived in Capernaum the evening

145:0.1 J. prepared to launch out in the first open and public

145:0.1 The news that J. had returned rapidly spread

145:0.1 Mary the mother of J. hastened away, going over to

145:0.2 J. spent at the Zebedee house instructing his apostles

145:0.2 He also received and taught many earnest inquirers,

145:0.2 he arranged to speak in the synagogue on the coming

145:0.3 Baby Ruth was the chief comfort of J., as regards

145:1.1 when J. was teaching by the seaside, the people

145:1.1 he signaled to some fishermen occupying a near-by

145:1.1 he continued to teach the assembled multitude for

145:1.1 mending their nets when J. requested them to

145:1.2 After J. had finished teaching the people, he said to

145:1.2 place designated by J., they let down their nets

145:1.2 their associates forsook their nets and followed J..

145:1.3 J. was a close student of nature; an experienced

145:1.3 he was an experienced fisherman and knew the habits

145:1.3 he merely directed these men to the place where the

145:2.1 J. preached his sermon on “The Will of the Father in

145:2.1 more people believed in J. in Capernaum than in any

145:2.2 As J. taught in the synagogue this Sabbath afternoon

145:2.2 according to custom he took the first text from the

145:2.2 He chose the second text from the Prophets, reading

145:2.11 He taught, indeed, as one having authority and not as

145:2.12 Just as J. finished speaking, a young man in the

145:2.12 “What have we to do with you, J. of Nazareth?

145:2.12 J. bade the people be quiet and, taking the young

145:2.13 they believed J. had cast a demon out of this man.

145:2.13 But J. did not at that time cure his epilepsy.

145:2.14 rapidly spread that J. had cast a demon out of a man

145:2.15 where J. and the twelve made their headquarters,

145:2.15 and J. and his friends stopped there on the way

145:2.15 J. stood over this sick woman, holding her hand,

145:2.15 J. had not yet had time to explain to his apostles

145:2.16 Amatha was not miraculously healed by J. at this

145:2.17 that another miracle had been wrought by J..

145:3.1 By the time J. and his apostles had made ready to

145:3.1 all who were sick began preparations to go to J. or

145:3.3 Even the text J. had used for his afternoon sermon

145:3.3 and he had spoken with such unprecedented power

145:3.3 While he made no appeal to human authority,

145:3.3 he did speak directly to the consciences and souls of

145:3.3 Though he did not resort to logic, legal quibbles, or

145:3.3 he did make a powerful, direct, clear, and personal

145:3.4 That Sabbath was a great day in the earth life of J.,

145:3.5 as J. and the apostles lingered about the supper table

145:3.5 Perpetua informed her husband, who told J..

145:3.7 peculiarly touched the human heart of J. and

145:3.7 But J. well knew he could never build an enduring

145:3.8 was one of those moments in the earth career of J.

145:3.9 J., looking down upon the afflicted throng, answered

145:3.9 but the further words of J. were lost in the tumult.

145:3.10 J. had passed the responsibility of this healing

145:3.11 of supernatural healing, J. was the most surprised.

145:3.11 he neglected to bear in his mind the admonitory

145:3.11 J. desired to see these suffering mortals made

145:3.11 Adjuster of J. instantly ruled that such an act of

145:3.12 watchers to report on the work and teachings of J.

145:3.12 to ascertain if he was the former carpenter of

145:3.13 J. became as much a physician as a preacher.

145:3.13 True, he continued his teaching, but his personal

145:3.15 such so-called miracles gave J. much trouble in that

145:4.1 apostles of J. were keyed up to the highest pitch of

145:4.1 of all the great days of their association with J..

145:4.1 J. had told them only a few days before, and when

145:4.2 But when they sought for J., they could not find

145:4.2 When J. did return to their midst, the hour was

145:4.2 J. refused the congratulations and adoration of the

145:5.1 Neither did J. sleep much that Saturday night.

145:5.1 He realized that the world was filled with physical

145:5.1 he contemplated the great danger of being compelled

145:5.1 thoughts which occupied the mortal mind of J.

145:5.1 he arose that Sunday morning long before daybreak

145:5.1 that he might not allow his human sympathy, joined

145:5.1 he did not wish altogether to avoid ministering to

145:5.1 he knew that he must do the more important work

145:5.2 J went out in the hills to pray so many times because

145:5.3 after J. had gone out to pray, Peter aroused James

145:5.3 found J. and besought him to tell them the reason for

145:5.3 desired to know why he appeared to be troubled by

145:5.4 J. endeavored to explain to these three apostles what

145:5.4 He taught them about what had transpired and

145:5.4 J. confided to them the reason for his coming forth

145:5.4 He sought to make plain to his personal associates

145:5.5 They clamored to see J.. Andrew and the apostles

145:5.5 with several of his associates, went to find J..

145:5.5 When Andrew had located J. in company with the

145:5.8 When J. had spoken, Andrew and his fellow apostles

145:5.8 and made ready for the journey as J. had directed.

145:5.8 J. and the apostles started out upon their first public

145:5.9 shortly after J. and his apostles had left for Rimmon,

145:5.9 his brother James and insisted that they go to J..

145:5.9 By the time James consented to go with Jude, J. had

145:5.10 J. listened to them patiently, but he would not

146:0.1 On this tour J. and the twelve apostles, assisted by

146:0.2 J. permitted his associates to preach without

146:0.2 On this tour he cautioned them on three occasions;

146:0.2 he admonished them to remain away from Nazareth

146:1.1 J. and the twenty-four devote much of their time to

146:2.1 While the common people of Jotapata heard J. and

146:2.1 it was the discourse of J. to the twenty-four on the

146:2.1 in response to his question J. spoke at great length

146:2.3 J. quoted to his apostles from the Prophet

146:2.3 J. quoted the proverb of the wise man who said:

146:2.4 and linked together in the prayer which J. taught

146:2.5 Again J. quoted from the Hebrew scriptures: “I

146:2.13 Of all the prayers of the Hebrew scriptures he

146:2.13 J. commented at great length on the relation of

146:2.14 13. J. taught that the prayer for divine guidance

146:2.14 J. never taught that human knowledge and special

146:2.14 But he did teach that prayer is a factor in the

146:2.14 When J. taught his associates to pray in the spirit

146:2.14 he explained that he referred to praying sincerely

146:2.15 14. J. warned his followers against thinking that

146:2.15 But he did exhort his believers to employ prayer as

146:2.15 J. deplored that so little of the spirit of thanksgiving

146:2.15 He quoted from the Scriptures on this occasion,

146:2.16 Then he quoted from the Scriptures: “I will praise

146:2.17 16. J. taught his followers that, when they had

146:2.17 Worship, taught J., makes one increasingly like

146:2.18 And many other truths did J. tell his apostles about

146:3.1 J. had the memorable discussion with the Greek

146:3.1 J. listened with patience and sympathy to this

146:3.1 J. taught this Greek the saving truths of the gospel

146:3.3 Thomas asked J. this question: “Master, how can a

146:3.10 The special instruction given by J. during their stay

146:3.10 J. gave his followers little instruction regarding the

146:3.11 or gentile, and few of them really believed in J.,

146:4.1 Sometimes he would speak at the morning service,

146:4.1 J. and the apostles would also often teach and

146:4.1 became increasingly antagonistic toward J., they

146:4.2 and since J. had never shared the life of the miner,

146:4.2 he spent most of his time, while sojourning at Iron,

146:4.2 J worked in the mines with the underground laborers

146:4.2 The fame of J. as a healer had spread even to this

146:4.3 as J. was returning from the mines, he chanced to

146:4.3 he chanced to pass through a narrow side street on

146:4.3 As he drew near the squalid hovel of a leprous man,

146:4.3 made bold to accost him as he passed his door,

146:4.3 And when J. saw him in his affliction and heard

146:4.3 As J. looked upon him, the man fell upon his face

146:4.4 When J. had lifted the man upon his feet, he

146:4.4 he charged him: “See that you tell no man about

146:4.4 But this man did not do as J. had instructed him.

146:4.4 to publish abroad that J. had cured his leprosy,

146:4.4 not go to the priests as J. had admonished him.

146:4.4 As a result of his spreading the news that J. had

146:4.4 Although J. did not again enter the town, he

146:4.4 he remained two days in the outskirts near the mines

146:4.5 the first so-called miracle which J. had deliberately

146:4.6 In no place where J. had taught had he met with

146:4.6 How they wished he would cleanse another leper

146:5.1 would have a sympathetic hearing at Cana, for J.

146:5.1 Titus heard that J. was at Cana; so he hastened over

146:5.1 The believers at Capernaum thought J. could heal

146:5.2 When this nobleman had located J. in Cana, he

146:5.2 J., looking at the father of the sick boy, said:

146:5.2 pleaded with J., saying: “My Lord, I do believe,

146:5.2 J. bowed his head a moment in silent meditation,

146:5.2 Titus believed the word of J. and hastened back to

146:5.2 Titus recalled that it was about that hour when J.

146:5.2 just such knowledge as J. frequently resorted to

146:5.3 Again was J. compelled to hasten away from Cana

146:5.3 he was supposed to have healed the nobleman’s son

146:5.3 requesting that he heal sufferers at a distance.

146:5.3 And when J. saw that the countryside was aroused,

146:6.1 people had become miracle minded regarding J.

146:6.1 their friends announcing that J. had healed them.

146:6.2 When J. sought to leave Cana and go to Nain,

146:6.2 As J. and his apostles drew near the gate of the

146:6.2 When the funeral procession had come up to J.

146:6.2 they thought J. could cure any human disease,

146:6.2 J., while being thus importuned, stepped forward

146:6.2 he perceived the tragedy which his presence could

146:6.2 so, turning to the mother, he said: “Weep not.

146:6.2 young man by the hand, he said, “Awake and arise.”

146:6.2 to speak, and J. sent them back to their homes.

146:6.3 J. endeavored to calm the multitude and vainly

146:6.3 not really dead, that he had not brought him back

146:6.3 J. told them the boy was merely in a deep sleep,

146:6.3 the fact that he always in great modesty tried to hide

146:6.4 word went abroad that J. had raised the widow’s son

146:6.4 Never was J. able to make even all his apostles fully

146:6.4 not really dead when he bade him awake and arise.

146:6.4 But he did impress them sufficiently to keep it out

146:6.4 And again was J. so besieged as a physician that he

146:7.1 At Endor J. escaped for a few days from the

146:7.1  J. plainly told his apostles that the stray and

146:7.1 He told his followers that, after he returned to the

146:7.2  J explained to his apostles that the spirits of departed

147:0.1  J. and the apostles arrived in Capernaum on

147:0.1  J. spent time alone in the hills about his Father’s

147:0.2 the household of Herod believed in J. and

147:0.2 had helped to lessen that ruler’s enmity toward J..

147:0.2 to Herod that the “kingdom” which J. proclaimed

147:0.2 they remained bitter and threatening enemies of J.

147:0.2 The greatest danger to J. lay in the Jerusalem

147:0.2 it was for this very reason that J. and the apostles

147:1.1 Would you, therefore, go to J. in my behalf and

147:1.1 Jewish leaders would have more influence with J..

147:1.1 So the elders went to see J. and their spokesman

147:1.2 And as he went with them over to the centurion’s

147:1.2 the Roman soldier sent his friends out to greet J.,

147:1.3 into the house and told Mangus what J. had said.

147:1.4 was not revealed to those who accompanied J..

147:2.1 J. and the apostolic party started on their journey

147:2.1 to Jerusalem just before the trial and death of J..

147:2.2 began to congregate, so much so that J. had little

147:2.2 but J. enjoined them to do no public preaching,

147:2.3 J. and all of the twelve partook of the bloodless

147:2.3 The apostles of John did not eat the Passover with J.

147:2.3 This was the second Passover J. had observed with

147:2.4 When J. and the twelve departed for Capernaum,

147:2.4 while J. and the twelve returned to work in Galilee.

147:3.1 John said to J., “Come with me, I would show

147:3.1 John conducted J. out through one of the

147:3.2 restless under the restrictions imposed by J.,

147:5.4 he took her by the hand and, lifting her up, said:

147:5.5 “Who is this man that he even dares to forgive sins?”

147:5.5 And when J. heard them thus murmuring, he turned

147:5.5 he turned to dismiss the woman, saying, “Woman,

147:5.9 He cautioned his hearers not mistakenly to apply

147:5.10 Many other semiprivate meetings did J. attend with

147:5.10 he and his apostles finally departed for Capernaum.

147:6.1 J. and the twelve departed from their Bethany

147:6.2 for the purpose of deciding what to do with J..

147:6.4 spies seized upon this as a pretext for assailing J..

147:6.4 they were indignant, and rushing back to where J.

147:6.6 It consisted in what he did and in what he affirmed.

148:2.2 Many of the cures effected by J. in connection with

148:2.4 unknown causes of disease, J. did not disregard the

148:2.4 Immanuel, given ere he embarked upon the venture

148:2.4 J. inspired the faith and confidence of the sick and

148:3.1 J. conducted public services at the encampment

148:3.2 ask J. why he was absent so much from their midst,

148:3.2 he would invariably answer that he was “about the

148:3.3 He had released Peter, James, and John temporarily

148:3.3 for close association and intimate contact with J..

148:3.4 the human J. chose to designate such activities on

148:3.5 Many times, when J. was alone for hours, but when

148:4.1 It was the habit of J. to hold special converse with

148:4.1 When J. heard these questions, he said to Thomas:

148:4.11 All this and much more J. said to Thomas, and much

148:4.11 J. admonished him to “speak not to the others

148:7.3 But Herod refused to take action against J.,

148:7.4 the first case of a miracle to be wrought by J. in

148:8.1 spies became divided in their attitude toward J.

148:8.1 Sanhedrin, publicly espoused the teachings of J.

148:8.2 they invited J. to come to their city for the purpose

148:8.2 But J. courteously declined the invitation.

148:8.3 the self-deceived pretender, but J. intervened and

148:8.3 before J. interceded for the Bagdad prophet, David

148:9.1 J. was holding his last meeting with the apostles,

148:9.2 This paralytic had heard that J. was about to leave

148:9.2 they ascended to the roof of the room in which J.

148:9.2 When J. saw what they had done, he ceased

148:9.2 he ceased speaking, while those who were with him

148:9.3 and lawyers heard this pronouncement by J., they

148:9.3 Does he not understand that such words are

148:9.3 J., perceiving in his spirit that they thus reasoned

148:9.3 And when J. had thus spoken, the paralytic arose,

148:9.4 three of the spying Pharisees confessed faith in J.

149:0.1 Participating in this effort were J. and his twelve

149:0.2 Peter asked J. to give the final charge to the new

149:0.3 J. and his two companions traveled extensively

149:1.1 the fame of J., particularly as a healer, had spread to

149:1.1 J. did not deliberately perform any so-called miracles

149:1.2 were beneficiaries of this unconscious healing by J.

149:1.2 they did this notwithstanding that J. would, every

149:1.2 every time he observed one of these cases of healing

149:1.7 healing occurred unconsciously to the human J.

149:1.8 in the personal presence of J., certain forms of faith

149:1.8 J. did frequently suffer men to heal themselves in his

149:2.1 J. understood the minds of men.

149:2.1 He knew what was in the heart of man, and had

149:2.1 had his teachings been left as he presented them,

149:2.2 Paul, in his efforts to bring the teachings of J. to

149:2.2 forth as the embodiment of the teachings of J..

149:2.2 it does also contain much that J. did not teach.

149:2.3 the teaching that J. was the sacrificed Son who

149:2.4 teaching so completely about the person of J..

149:2.4 This overemphasis of the personality of J. in the

149:2.4 Eastern religionists to accept the teachings of J..

149:2.4 We would not belittle the place of the person of J.

149:2.5 The teachers of the religion of J. should approach

149:2.6 the fame of J. rested chiefly upon his reputation as

149:2.6 more and more he was sought for spiritual help.

149:2.6 J. was increasingly sought by the victims of moral

149:2.6 he invariably taught them the way of deliverance.

149:2.6 and he revealed to them the light of life.

149:2.6 he always helped those who sought his ministry.

149:2.7 But you should never approach J. through these

149:2.7 Learn to approach the miracle through J., but do

149:2.7 the mistake of approaching J. through the miracle.

149:2.7 J. is the only founder of a religion who performed

149:2.8 J. dared to take women as teachers of the gospel

149:2.8 And he had the consummate courage to do this in

149:2.9 J. lifted women out of the disrespectful oblivion

149:2.10 As J. mingled with the people, they found him

149:2.10 He was free from religious prejudices;

149:2.10 he was never intolerant.

149:2.10 He had nothing in his heart resembling social

149:2.10 While he complied with the good in the religion of

149:2.10 he did not hesitate to disregard man-made traditions

149:2.10 He dared to teach that catastrophes of nature,

149:2.10 He denounced slavish devotion to meaningless

149:2.10 He boldly proclaimed man’s spiritual freedom and

149:2.11 J. transcended all the teachings of his forebears

149:2.11 he boldly substituted clean hearts for clean hands

149:2.11 He put reality in the place of tradition and swept a

149:2.11 He was not a militant revolutionist;

149:2.11 he was a progressive evolutionist.

149:2.11 He engaged in the destruction of that which was

149:2.11 the destruction of that which was only when he

149:2.12 J. received the obedience of his followers without

149:2.12 Only three men who received his personal call

149:2.12 He exercised a peculiar drawing power over men,

149:2.12 but he was not dictatorial.

149:2.12 J. commanded confidence, and no man ever resented

149:2.12 He assumed absolute authority over his disciples,

149:2.12 He permitted his followers to call him Master.

149:2.14 Devoted men and women loved J. with a well-nigh

149:3.1 Notwithstanding the favorable reception of J. and

149:3.1 J. was a teacher who taught as the occasion served;

149:3.1 he was not a systematic teacher.

149:3.1 J. taught not so much from the law as from life,

149:3.1 (And when he employed a parable for illustrating

149:3.1 he designed to utilize just one feature of the story

149:3.1 Many wrong ideas concerning the teachings of J.

149:3.3 When J. first met with the evangelists at the camp,

149:3.3 They were convinced that J. must be executed

149:4.1 J. did very little public work on this preaching tour,

149:4.1 he conducted many evening classes with believers in

149:4.1 the cities and villages where he chanced to sojourn

149:4.1 one of the younger evangelists asked J. a question

149:4.2 Before J. ceased speaking, he said further: “Let your

149:4.3 J. always preached temperance and taught

149:4.3 He pointed out that overmuch sympathy and pity

149:4.3 He discussed one of their former associates whose

149:4.3 At the same time he warned them against the

149:4.4 J. discoursed on the dangers of courage and faith,

149:4.4 He also showed how prudence and discretion,

149:4.4 He exhorted his hearers to strive for originality while

149:4.4 He pleaded for sympathy without sentimentality,

149:4.4 He taught reverence free from fear and superstition

149:4.5 It was not so much what J. taught about the

149:4.5 He lived in the midst of stress and storm, but

149:4.5 but he never wavered.

149:4.5 endeavored to trip him, but he did not stumble.

149:4.5 When he was interrupted in his discourses with

149:4.5 Never did he resort to ignoble tactics in meeting the

149:5.1 J. was visiting the group of evangelists working

149:5.5 J. hardly regarded this world as a “vale of tears.”

149:5.5 He rather looked upon it as the birth sphere of the

149:6.1 Philip said to J: “Master, why is it that the Scriptures

149:7.1 with the approval of J., had instructed David to

149:7.3 J., with Andrew, Peter, James, and John, remained

150:0.1 joint conference with Andrew and the apostles of J.

150:0.2 Again did J decline to participate in their discussions

150:0.2 but the apostles of J. refused to bind themselves by

150:0.4 while J. and the twelve traveled together most of

150:1.1 Of all the daring things which J. did in connection

150:1.1 J. requested David to summon his parents back to

150:1.1 that J. would dare to commission women to teach

150:1.1 ten women selected and commissioned by J. were

150:1.1 J. added two other women to this group—Mary

150:1.2 J. authorized these women to effect their own

150:1.3 The charge which J. gave these ten women as he

150:1.3 he set them apart for gospel teaching and ministry

150:1.3 the enemies of J. making great capital out of this

150:2.1 they had desired to hold personal converse with J. or

150:3.1 the women by Andrew, upon instructions from J..

150:3.2 J. gave the united group a memorable talk on

150:3.2 Andrew asked J. if these beliefs were well

150:3.2 The statement which J. made at this time may be

150:3.12 10. He exposed and denounced their belief in spells,

150:4.1 Then he designated the pairs of apostles as he

150:4.2 J. arranged the date for meeting the twelve at

150:4.4 the time of their assembling at Nazareth to meet J.

150:5.1 Rachel asked J. this question: “Master, what shall

150:5.4 When J. had left off speaking, there was rejoicing

150:6.1 At the evening discussions J. talked upon many

150:6.1 he discussed “The Love of God,” “Dreams and

150:6.2 J. would move on to join another group, being

150:6.2 the women remained much of the time with J..

150:6.3 And this was the first time J. had visited Nazareth

150:7.1 J. walked about Nazareth quite unobserved and

150:7.1 He passed by the home of his childhood and the

150:7.1 on the hill which he so much enjoyed when a lad.

150:7.1 he heard the familiar sounds of the trumpet blast

150:7.1 J. had sent Thomas to arrange with the ruler of the

150:7.1 just as he had so many, many times heard it when

150:7.1 he walked down by the synagogue where he had

150:7.1 where he had gone to school and indulged his mind

150:7.1 Earlier in the day J. had sent Thomas to arrange with

150:7.2 much resentment when he moved to Capernaum.

150:7.2 offended that he never included his native village in

150:7.2 angry because he had done none of his great works

150:7.2 the people of Nazareth had discussed J. much, but

150:7.4 the Jews even presumed to criticize J. because he

150:8.1 As a young man J. had often spoken in this place of

150:8.1 the very manuscript which he had presented to this

150:8.2 were conducted just as when J. had attended them

150:8.2 He ascended the speaking platform with the ruler of

150:8.8 ark and brought out a roll, which he presented to J.

150:8.8 J., taking the roll, stood up and began to read from

150:8.9 And when he had ceased reading from the law,

150:8.9 he turned to Isaiah and began to read: “The spirit of

150:8.10 J. closed the book and, after handing it back to the

150:8.10 He began by saying: “Today are these Scriptures

150:8.10 And then J. spoke for fifteen minutes on “The Sons

150:8.11 J. stepped down into the crowd which pressed

150:8.11 men who had been hired to make trouble for J..

150:9.1 J. found himself surrounded in the synagogue by

150:9.1 he half humorously remarked: “Yes, I am Joseph’s

150:9.3 J. would have good-naturedly managed the crowd

150:9.3 J. had long taught the apostles that a soft answer

150:9.3 these ruffians laid hold upon J. and rushed him out

150:9.3 J. turned suddenly upon his captors and, facing

150:9.3 He said nothing, but his friends were more than

150:9.3 as he started to walk forward, the mob parted and

150:9.4 J., followed by his disciples, proceeded to their

150:9.4 go back to Capernaum early the next day, as J. had

151:0.1 J. spent most of this Sabbath day alone in the

151:0.2 J. had not fully recovered from the sorrow of his

151:1.1 J. first began to employ the parable method of

151:1.1 Since J. had talked with the apostles and others

151:1.1 he went out by the seaside and sat alone in the boat,

151:1.1 said to J., “Master, shall I talk to them?”

151:1.1 And then J. began the recital of the parable of the

151:1.1 a long series of such parables which he taught the

151:1.1 This boat had an elevated seat on which he sat

151:1.1 he talked to the crowd assembled along the shore.

151:1.3 when they heard J. teach the people in this manner,

151:1.3 Matthew said to J.: “Master, what is the meaning of

151:1.5 As Andrew and Thomas talked further with J., Peter

151:2.1 they decided to go to J. and ask for an explanation

151:1.2 And when he had finished speaking this parable,

151:1.2 he said to the multitude, “He who has ears to hear,

151:2.3 J., after listening to Peter’s interpretation of the

151:2.6 Thomas caused them to recall what J. had taught

151:2.6 and before J. resumed speaking, Andrew arose,

151:2.6 After J. had beckoned Thomas to speak, he said:

151:2.8  J. more and more employed parables in connection

151:3.1 J. introduced the evening’s conference by saying:

151:3.3 1. J. advised against the use of either fables or

151:3.3 He did recommend the free use of parables,

151:3.3 He emphasized the value of utilizing the analogy

151:3.3 He frequently alluded to the natural as “the unreal

151:3.4 2. J. narrated three or four parables from the

151:3.4 a new method of teaching as he employed it from

151:3.5 3. In teaching the apostles the value of parables, J.

151:3.12 In this way J. sought to acquaint his followers with

151:3.13 J made his first comment on the parable of the sower

151:3.13 He said the parable referred to two things: First, it

151:3.14 J. also resorted to the use of parables as the best

151:3.14 He also determined upon this method of teaching

151:4.7 Many other parables spoke J. to the multitudes.

151:4.7 he seldom taught the masses except by this means.

151:4.7 After speaking to a public audience in parables, he

151:5.1 On Sabbath J. hastened away to the hills, but when

151:5.1 J. spoke to them in the afternoon after the preaching

151:5.1 and when he had finished, he said to his apostles:

151:5.3 an evening gale that caught the boat carrying J.

151:5.4 J. lay asleep in the stern of the boat under a small

151:5.4 he had directed them to sail him across to the other

151:5.4 boat as though it were a toy ship, J. slumbered on

151:5.4 dropped his oar and, rushing over to J., shook him

151:5.4 when he was aroused, Peter said: “Master, don’t

151:5.5 As J. came out in the rain, he looked first at Peter,

151:5.5 he turned his glance back upon Simon Peter, who,

151:5.5 J. had hardly uttered this rebuke to Peter and the

151:5.5 he had hardly bidden Peter seek peace wherewith to

151:5.6 J. plainly explained to the twelve that he had spoken

151:5.6 that he had spoken to their troubled spirits and had

151:5.6 that he had not commanded the elements to obey his

151:5.7 It was late in the evening when J. and his associates

151:6.2 As J. and his associates passed near this burial

151:6.3 Bethsaida, where he heard the preaching of J. and

151:6.4 When Amos recognized J., he fell down at his feet

151:6.4 I know you, J., but I am possessed of many devils,

151:6.5  J., looking down upon the man crouching like an

151:6.5 And when Amos heard J. speak these words,

151:6.5 were astonished to see the lunatic sitting with J.

151:6.6 presence of J. and the supposed miraculous curing

151:6.6 legend that J. had cured Amos by casting a legion

151:6.7  J. did not obtain the rest he was looking for.

151:6.7 Most of that day he was thronged by those who

151:6.7  J. and his friends were awakened by a delegation

151:6.7 had come to urge that he depart from their midst.

151:6.7 We know he is a holy man, but the gods of our

151:6.8 Amos besought J. to permit him to go back with

151:6.8 Amos went about publishing that J. had cast a

151:6.8 declaring what great things J. had done for him.

152:0.1 great crowd was waiting for J. when his boat landed

152:0.1 As J. spoke with those who had assembled to greet

152:0.1 and besought that he would hasten away with him,

152:0.1 When J. heard the request of this father, he said: “I

152:0.2 As J. went along with Jairus, the large crowd

152:0.2 exclaiming, “Someone touched me.”

152:0.2 “I asked who touched me, for I perceived that

152:0.2 As J. looked about him, his eyes fell upon a near-by

152:0.3 When J. heard this, he took the woman by the hand

152:0.3 but which he in no sense consciously willed.

152:0.3 J. called this woman, Veronica, into his presence to

152:0.3 He did not want Veronica to go away thinking that

152:0.3 He desired all to know that it was her pure faith that

152:1.1 But J. seemed not to heed the servant’s words, for

152:1.1 he turned and said to the grief-stricken father: “Fear

152:1.1 When he entered the house, he found the flute-

152:1.1 when he had put all the mourners out of the room,

152:1.1 he went in with the father and mother and his three

152:1.1 He told the mourners that the damsel was not dead,

152:1.1  J., going up to where the child lay, took her by the

152:1.1  J. directed that they should give her something to

152:1.2 there was much agitation in Capernaum against J.,

152:1.2 he called the family together and explained that the

152:1.2 a long fever, and that he had merely aroused her,

152:1.2 that he had not raised her from the dead.

152:1.2 He likewise explained all this to his apostles, but

152:1.2 all believed he had raised the little girl from the dead

152:1.2 What J. said in explanation of many of these miracles

152:1.2 lost no opportunity to ascribe another wonder to J.

152:1.2  J. and the apostles returned to Bethsaida after he

152:1.2 he had specifically charged all of them that they

152:1.3 When he came out of Jairus’s house, two blind men

152:1.3 Everywhere he went the sick and the afflicted were

152:1.3 concerned lest he continue his work of teaching and

152:1.4 what took place on earth in the person of J. of

152:1.5 Never before J. was on earth, nor since, has it

152:1.5 By going away from the world, J. made it possible

152:2.1  J. continued to teach the people by day while he

152:2.1 he instructed the apostles and evangelists at night.

152:2.1 to establish a new encampment, but J. refused

152:2.1 On Friday he declared a furlough of one week that

152:2.1  J. and the twelve planned to escape, unnoticed, to

152:2.4 plans to stop over at Capernaum to see and hear J.

152:2.5 Philip provided a three days’ supply of food for J.

152:2.5  that J., desiring to avoid trouble with both Herod

152:2.5 Not a word was said to J., though, of course, he

152:2.5 though, of course, he knew all that was going on.

152:2.5 who favored this attempt to proclaim J. king were

152:2.6 when J. asked James Alpheus to summon Andrew

152:2.7 Andrew returned to J., saying: “The lad has left only

152:2.8 For a moment J. stood in silence. There was a

152:2.8 J. turned suddenly to Andrew and said, “Bring me

152:2.8 when Andrew brought the basket to J., the Master

152:2.9  J. took up the loaves in his hands, and after he had

152:2.9 after he had given thanks, he broke the bread and

152:2.9  J. in like manner broke and distributed the fishes.

152:2.10 only nature miracle which J. performed as a result of

152:3.2 the hope of seeing J. assert his right to rule.

152:3.2 when J. stepped upon a huge stone and, lifting up

152:3.2 Every inch he looked a king as he continued to

152:3.3 These words of J. sent the multitude away stunned

152:3.3 Mark lad, spoke, “And he refused to be our king.”

152:3.3 J., before going off to be alone in the hills, turned to

152:4.2 Peter dreamed a dream; he saw a vision of J.

152:4.2 in Peter’s mind, he dreamed that he heard J. say:

152:4.2 Then Peter dreamed that J. came to the rescue

152:4.4 Peter sincerely believed that J. came to them that

152:5.1 found J., in company with their chore boy, sitting on

152:5.1  searched all night about the eastern hills for J.,

152:5.1 he and the Mark lad had started to walk around the

152:5.2 But before these received word that he was back in

152:5.2  J. asked Andrew to assemble the twelve apostles

152:5.5  J. then announced that he wished to withdraw for

152:5.5 he forbade any of the disciples or the multitude to

152:5.5  J. was preparing for a great crisis of his life on earth,

152:5.5 he therefore spent much time in communion with the

152:5.6 the attempt to make J. king aroused widespread

152:6.1  J. held informal conferences with the twelve every

152:6.2 While J. and the twelve were resting at Gennesaret

152:6.2 followers of J., who numbered more than fifty

152:6.2  J. desired to give his apostles such an experience

152:6.2 hysteria after he should leave them alone in the work

152:6.2 but he was only partially successful in this effort.

152:6.4  J. taught the appeal to the emotions as the technique

152:6.4 He designated the mind thus aroused and quickened

152:6.5  J. thus endeavored to prepare the apostles for the

152:6.5 He explained to the twelve that the religious rulers

152:6.5 fully that J. was not going to sit on David’s throne.

152:6.5 popular movement to make J. king was the apex

152:6.6  J. instructed them regarding the miraculous feeding

152:6.6 telling them why he engaged in this extraordinary

152:6.6 that he did not thus yield to his sympathy for the

152:6.6 until he had ascertained that it was “according to the

152:7.1  J., accompanied only by the twelve apostles,

152:7.1 He forbade them to do any public teaching on this

152:7.1 neither did he permit them to teach or preach while

152:7.1  J., with John, stayed at the home of a believer

152:7.2  J. entered Jerusalem only once during this Passover,

152:7.2 believers were brought out by Abner to meet J. at

152:7.3  J. and the apostles left Jerusalem for Bethsaida,

152:7.3  J. dispatched Andrew to ask of the ruler of the

152:7.3  And J. well knew that that would be the last time he

152:7.3 the last time he would ever be permitted to speak in

153:0.1 the apostles noticed that J. was seriously occupied

153:0.1  J. had said little to them since they left Jerusalem.

153:0.2 Judas dared to indulge the thought that possibly J.

153:0.2 that “he did not have the courage and daring to

153:1.2 J. comprehended that he faced the immediate

153:1.2 and he elected boldly to assume the offensive.

153:1.2 At the feeding of the five thousand he challenged

153:1.2 now he chose again openly to attack their concept of

153:1.3 J. fully understood how men prepare themselves for

153:1.5 before J. began to speak, there was just one great

153:1.6  J. had left them dumfounded and confounded.

153:1.6 J had recently engaged in the greatest demonstration

153:2.1  J. introduced this sermon by reading from the law

153:2.2 when J. had finished this reading, he turned to the

153:2.2 he turned to the Prophets and read from Jeremiah:

153:2.8 J., pointing up to the device of a pot of manna which

153:2.10 As J. paused for a moment to look over the

153:2.10 Then said the Pharisee: “But are you not J. of

153:2.13 When J. had finished speaking, the ruler of the

153:2.13 They crowded up around J. to ask more questions

153:3.1 Many were the questions asked J. during this after

153:3.3 the Jerusalem spies who had been observing J.

153:3.5 J. then directed his remarks to all present.

153:3.6 convinced that J. must be apprehended on a

153:3.6 it had been reported that J. had said, “Salvation is

153:3.7  And J. spoke out with less reserve because he knew

153:3.7 he knew the hour had come when he could do

153:3.7 when he could do nothing more to prevent an open

153:4.1 brought to J. a distraught youth who was possessed

153:4.1 Leading this demented lad up to J., he said: “What

153:4.1 this is the first case where J. really cast an “evil spirit

153:4.2 charged that J. could do these things because he was

153:4.2 these things because he was in league with devils;

153:4.2 that he admitted in the language which he employed

153:4.2 that J. did all his so-called miracles by the power of

153:4.2 to do with this man; he is in partnership with Satan.”

153:4.6 And when he had finished speaking, his apostles

153:5.1  J. dashed to pieces the hopes of his apostles,

153:5.1 repeatedly had he crushed their fondest expectations

153:5.2 And now, when they reached home, J. refused to eat

153:5.2 For hours he isolated himself in one of the upper

153:5.2 to seek to promote the movement away from J.

153:5.3 when J. came down from the upper chamber and

153:5.4 when J. had finished speaking, Simon Peter said:

154:0.1 as J. was speaking words of comfort and courage

154:0.1 scribes and Pharisees urged Herod to arrest J.;

154:0.1 convince him that J. was stirring up the populace

154:0.1 when the people sought to proclaim J. king and

154:0.2 that J. did not propose to meddle with the affairs of

154:0.2 that he was only concerned with the establishment of

154:0.2 which brotherhood he called the kingdom of heaven.

154:0.2 influenced at this time, in his attitude toward J., by

154:0.2 to become entangled in these intrigues against J..

154:0.2 sickness which had been apparently healed by J.,

154:0.3  J prepared his followers for the impending dispersion

154:1.1  J. held intimate counsel with his followers at the

154:1.1 Pharisees and openly declare their adherence to J..

154:1.1 With this group he held sessions morning, afternoon,

154:1.2 closing the house of God to J. and all his followers.

154:1.2 as chief ruler and openly aligned himself with J..

154:1.3  J. talked to less than one hundred and fifty who

154:1.3 the lowest ebb in the tide of popular regard for J.

154:1.3 more idealistic and spiritual concepts taught by J.,

154:2.1 decree closing all the synagogues of Palestine to J.

154:2.2  J. declared a week’s holiday, urging all his disciples

154:2.3 This week of rest enabled J. to visit many families

154:2.3 He also went fishing with David Zebedee on several

154:2.3 from their chief respecting the safeguarding of J..

154:2.4  J. sent Salome, James’s mother, to her rest, while he

154:2.4 while he ministered to his suffering apostles.

154:2.4  J. could have instantly healed these two men, but

154:2.4  did J. engage in any sort of supernatural ministration

154:3.1 A new effort was made to have Herod place J.

154:3.1 permitting the Sanhedrin authorities to seize J.

154:3.1 that Herod had become hostile to J., and that he

154:3.2 that J. be seized and carried to Jerusalem for trial

154:3.2 to seize J. within Herod’s domains and forcibly to

154:3.2 he well knew that J. could not expect a fair trial

154:4.1 momentous question: “What shall we do with J.?”

154:4.1 inclined to the belief that J. might be the Messiah,

154:4.1 equal groups who held the following views of J.:

154:4.2 1. That he was a deluded and harmless fanatic.

154:4.3 2. That he was a dangerous and designing agitator

154:4.4 3. That he was in league with devils,

154:4.4 that he might even be a prince of devils.

154:4.5 4. That he was beside himself, that he was mad,

154:4.6 could not have been built upon the teachings of J.

154:4.6 never seriously tried to carry out the teachings of J.

154:5.1 May 22 was an eventful day in the life of J..

154:5.1 or was about to authorize, the arrest of J. by the

154:5.2 J. imparted his farewell instructions to the

154:5.2 he bade them farewell for the time being, knowing

154:5.2 He directed them all to seek God for guidance and

154:5.2 He selected twelve of the evangelists to accompany

154:5.2 the twelve apostles he directed to remain with him

154:5.2 The twelve women he instructed to remain at the

154:5.2 at Peter’s house until he should send for them.

154:5.3 J. consented to David Zebedee’s continuing his

154:5.4 J. began his parting address to almost one hundred

154:5.4 This was a solemn occasion for all present, but J.

154:5.4 cheerful; he was once more like his normal self.

154:5.4 and he inspired all of them with his words of faith,

154:6.1 even Joseph, still retained much of their faith in J.,

154:6.1 never forget the visit of Gabriel ere J. was born.

154:6.1 to persuade Mary that J. was beside himself,

154:6.1 all were convinced that J. was acting strangely,

154:6.1 strangely, that he had acted strangely for some time.

154:6.1 she insisted that he had always treated his family

154:6.2 to try to persuade J. to come home with them, for,

154:6.2 “I know I could influence my son if he would only

154:6.2 had heard rumors concerning the plans to arrest J.

154:6.2 As long as J. was a popular figure in the public eye,

154:6.3 They had expected to meet J., take him aside, and

154:6.3 —if he would only give up the foolishness of trying to

154:6.3 “I will tell my brother that I think he is a man of God

154:6.3 and that I hope he would be willing to die before he

154:6.3 die before he would allow these wicked Pharisees to

154:6.3 to keep Ruth quiet while the others labored with J..

154:6.4 J. was in the very midst of delivering his parting

154:6.4 on the back porch and had word passed in to J.,

154:6.4 that J. would cease speaking and come to them

154:6.4 the moment he received word they were waiting.

154:6.5 that he must be about his Father’s business.

154:6.5 he paused in his speaking to receive the message,

154:6.6 carried her out in the garden to revive her while J.

154:6.6 He would then have gone out to confer with his

154:6.6 were on their way with authority to arrest J. and

154:6.6 Andrew received this message and, interrupting J.,

154:6.7 by surprise; so he asked J. what should be done.

154:6.8 Mary and Jesus’ brothers thought that J. did not

154:6.8 that he had lost interest in them, little realizing that

154:6.8 that it was they who failed to understand J..

154:6.8 J. understood how difficult it is for men to break

154:6.8 He knew how human beings are swayed by the

154:6.8 but he knew how far more difficult it is to persuade

154:6.9 in J. a sympathizing friend and an understanding

154:6.9 He had warned his apostles that a man’s foes may

154:6.9 but he had hardly realized how near this prediction

154:6.9 J. did not forsake his earth family to do his Father’s

154:6.9 his failure to enjoy this earlier association with J.

154:6.10 J. chose to be guided by the limited knowledge of

154:6.10 He desired to undergo the experience with his

154:6.10 And it was in the human mind of J. to see his family

154:6.10 the human mind of J. to see his family before he left.

154:6.10 He did not wish to stop in the midst of his discourse

154:6.10 He had intended to finish his address and then have

154:6.11 this explains why J. did not see his family waiting on

154:6.12 But he did say to David Zebedee as he entered the

154:7.1 J. engaged in this hasty flight from the Sanhedrin

154:7.2 who had instructions to maintain contact with J. and

154:7.2 J. was never again to make his home at the house of

154:7.4 the officers hurried up and began their search for J..

154:7.4 They refused to believe he had escaped them, and

154:7.4 while J. and his party were journeying northward

155:0.1 J. and the twenty-four went a little way to the north,

155:2.1 J. directed Peter to go over to Chorazin with the

155:2.1 he, with the eleven, departed for Caesarea-Philippi,

155:2.3 and departed for Caesarea-Philippi to join J. and the

155:2.3 J. made reference to the parable of the sower and

155:3.1 Although J. did no public work during this two

155:3.1 J. talked with the apostles each day, and they

155:3.2 truly a great and testing adventure to believe in J.

155:3.4 learned from J. to look upon human personalities in

155:3.6 J. warned his believers that,if their religious longings

155:3.8 J. repeatedly taught his apostles that no civilization

155:3.8 he never grew weary of pointing out to the twelve

155:4.2 J. delivered one of the most remarkable addresses

155:4.2 Peter asked J.: “Master, since the Father in heaven

155:4.2 before J. had begun to answer Peter’s question,

155:5.6 J. made it clear that the great difference between the

155:5.14 one of the few emotional appeals which J. ever made

155:5.16 Peter, going up to J., said: “Master, you have

155:6.19 And when J. had finished speaking, he beckoned to

156:0.1 J. and his associates arrived in the environs of Sidon,

156:0.1 times when J. was at the height of his popular favor.

156:1.1 a Syrian woman who had heard much of J. as a great

156:1.2 J. had charged his associates to tell no one of his

156:1.2 Karuska, explaining that he desired to have a rest.

156:1.2 Norana, to inform her that J. lodged at the home of

156:1.3 explained that J. was weary with much teaching

156:1.3 that he had come to Phoenicia for a period of quiet

156:1.7 J., who had heard all of this conversation through

156:1.7 As Norana and the child took leave, J. entreated

156:1.7 J. found it advisable to change his lodgings within

156:1.8 as J. taught his apostles, commenting on the cure of

156:2.1 J. and his associates passed over a bridge, the first

156:2.2 J. went to stay in a home just north of the city,

156:2.2 J. taught the twenty-four each morning at the home

156:2.4 that J. was like God but also that God was like J..

156:2.4 These gentiles were not afraid of J.; they dared to

156:2.4 men have not been unable to comprehend J.; they

156:2.5 J. made it clear to the twenty-four that he had not

156:2.5 that he had not fled from Galilee because he lacked

156:2.5 because he lacked courage to confront his enemies.

156:2.5 They comprehended that he was not yet ready for an

156:2.5 and that he did not seek to become a martyr.

156:2.6 He told them they could not stand still; they must go

156:2.6 He admonished them to “forget those things which

156:2.6 He besought them not to be content with their

156:2.8 J. greatly enjoyed the keen sense of humor which

156:2.8 J. greatly regretted that his people—the Jews—were

156:3.1 where he visited with a Syrian named Malach, who

156:4.1 J. maintained his headquarters at the home of a Jew

156:4.2 believers came out from the city to talk with J. at

156:5.1 J. first told his followers the story of the white lily

156:5.1 “Likewise,” said he, “mortal man, while he has his

156:5.2 J. made use of his first and only parable having to

156:5.3 asked J.: “Master, why do we pray that God will

156:5.23 The day before J. left Tyre for the return to the

156:5.23 he called his associates together and directed the

156:5.23 that which he and the twelve apostles were to take.

156:5.23 after the evangelists here left J., they were never

156:6.1 J. and the twelve left the home of Joseph, south of

156:6.5 While J. was absent from Capernaum and Galilee,

156:6.5 indicated he was so thoroughly frightened that he

156:6.5 that he would not likely ever return to bother them.

156:6.6 Philip had become a halfhearted believer in J.

156:6.7 to close the synagogues to the teachings of J. and

156:6.7 were followers of John and not disciples of J..

156:6.8 on learning that J. was sojourning across the lake in

156:6.8 J. would not be molested if he remained outside of

157:0.1 Before J. took the twelve for a short sojourn in the

157:0.1 he arranged through the messengers of David to go

157:0.1 —and J. went with Andrew and Peter to keep this

157:0.1 the Pharisees, knowing that J. was on the opposite

157:0.1 concluded that J. must have been expected to pay

157:0.1 from attempting to keep their appointment with J..

157:0.1 of the Pharisees in their efforts to send word to J.,

157:0.2 David’s messengers brought J. word that Pharisees

157:0.2 therefore he made no attempt to visit his family.

157:0.2 J. and his earth family failed to make contact.

157:1.1 As J., with Andrew and Peter, tarried by the lake

157:1.1 tax collector came upon them and, recognizing J.,

157:1.1 to show indignation at the suggestion that J.

157:1.2 Peter, his brother, nor J. had brought any money.

157:1.2 When Peter told J. about the collector and that he

157:1.4 J. having thus spoken, and Peter so soon

157:1.5 J., with Andrew and Peter, waited by the seashore

157:2.1 while J. and the twelve apostles were encamped in

157:2.1 many of the Pharisees, learning that J. was here,

157:2.1 united with the Pharisees in their effort to entrap J..

157:2.1 J. held a public meeting at which the Pharisees were

157:2.2 When J. had thus spoken, he withdrew and

157:2.2 villages of the Decapolis as soon as J. and the

157:3.1 J. and the twelve apostles left Magadan Park for

157:3.2 J had gone to Mount Hermon in his early experience

157:3.2 now that he was entering upon the final epoch of

157:3.2 J. desired to return to this mount of trial and triumph

157:3.2 where he hoped the apostles might gain a new vision

157:3.3 J. confronted the twelve with the first question he

157:3.3 He asked this surprising question, “Who do men say

157:3.4 J. had spent long months in training these apostles as

157:3.4 he well knew the time had come when he must begin

157:3.4 when he must begin to teach them more about his

157:3.5 They told him that he was regarded as a prophet or

157:3.5 that he was in league with the prince of devils.

157:3.5 believed he was John the Baptist risen from the dead

157:3.5 Peter explained that he had been, at sundry times

157:3.5 he pointed to them with a sweeping gesture of his

157:3.6 When J. had beckoned them again to be seated,

157:3.6 he said: “This has been revealed to you by my Father

157:4.1 truly believed that he was the expected Deliverer.

157:4.2 Simons were well-nigh agreed in their estimate of J.,

157:4.3 J. relieved the tension by that friendly smile which

157:4.3 With a commanding gesture he indicated that they

157:4.4 Peter, stepping a few paces forward toward J.,

157:4.5 And again he charged them, for the time being,

157:4.5 they should tell no man that he was the Son of God.

157:4.6 J. was beginning to have faith in the loyalty and

157:4.7 this same J. has been building that living temple

157:4.8 when J. had thus spoken, he directed the twelve to

157:5.1 the clear-cut recognition that J. was the Son of God,

157:5.1 the supernal fact that he was the Son of Man and

157:5.1 the human nature with the divine nature that J.

157:5.2 J. had sought to live his life on earth and complete

157:5.2 Knowing that he could never fulfill their Messianic

157:5.2 he endeavored to effect such a modification of their

157:5.2 he now recognized that such a plan could hardly

157:5.2 He therefore elected boldly to disclose the third

157:5.2 proclaim to the twelve that he was a Son of God.

157:5.3 For three years J. had been proclaiming that he was

157:5.3 insistent that he was the expected Jewish Messiah.

157:5.3 He now disclosed that he was the Son of God,

157:5.3 he determined to build the kingdom of heaven.

157:5.3 He had decided to refrain from further efforts to

157:5.3 to convince them that he was not the Messiah.

157:5.3 He now proposed to reveal to them what he is,

157:6.1 J. and the apostles remained another day at the

157:6.1 Following the collapse of the popularity of J. with

157:6.1 Matthew was loath to leave J. and his brethren at

157:6.3 J. now entered upon the fourth and last stage of

157:6.3 his childhood, the years when he was only dimly

157:6.3 manhood, during which he came more clearly to

157:6.4 Thus did J. exemplify in his life what he taught in his

157:6.4 He did not place emphasis, as did his later followers,

157:6.4 He rather taught that the spirit was easy victor over

157:6.5 Before Caesarea-Philippi he presented the gospel

157:6.5 After Caesarea-Philippi he appeared not merely as

157:6.5 it was required that he do all this as a human being,

157:6.6 J. had sincerely endeavored to lead his followers into

157:6.6 He well knew that his earth mission could not fulfill

157:6.6 had portrayed a Messiah which he could never be.

157:6.6 He sought to establish the Father’s kingdom as the

157:6.6 J., seeing this, then elected to meet his believers part

157:6.7 the apostles heard much that was new as J. talked to

157:7.1 he sought out J. and presented his cause for

157:7.2 And that was all Andrew could elicit from J..

157:7.2 disappointed when J. refused to be made king,

157:7.2 been humiliated when he fled from the Pharisees,

157:7.2 chagrined when he refused to accept the challenge

157:7.3 selfsame trials and tribulations, but they loved J..

157:7.4 Time and again, when J. would send his apostles

157:7.4 subtle doubts about the mission of J. as well as

157:7.5 And now J. would take his apostles along with him

157:7.5 Mt. Hermon, where he had appointed to inaugurate

157:7.5 he desired that some of them should also be present

158:0.1 when J. and his associates reached the foot of Mount

158:0.2 J. knew beforehand what was to transpire on the

158:0.2 he much desired that all his apostles might share this

158:0.2 he tarried with them at the foot of the mountain.

158:0.2 And since he could not take all of his associates

158:0.2 he decided to take only the three who were in the

158:1.1 J. and the three apostles began the ascent of Mount

158:1.2 J. had been summoned to go up on the mountain,

158:1.2 event was timed to occur while J. and the apostles

158:1.3 J. told the three apostles something of his experience

158:1.4 When a boy, J. used to ascend the hill near his home

158:1.4 now he ascended Mount Hermon to receive the

158:1.6 J. withdrew for a long conference with Gabriel and

158:1.8 they beheld J. in converse with two brilliant beings

158:1.8 conjectured that the beings with J. were Moses

158:1.9 vision faded before them and they observed J.

158:1.9J., Master, it is good to have been here. We

158:1.10 when the cloud vanished, again was J. alone with

158:1.10 he reached down and touched them, saying: “Arise

158:2.1 J. then began the conversation by remarking: “Make

158:2.1 now he began to talk about “rising from the dead”!

158:2.2 J., knowing that Peter sought to avoid reference to

158:2.2 that he referred to John the Baptist as Elijah.

158:2.2 J. knew that, if they insisted on regarding him as

158:2.3 J. enjoined silence about their observation of the

158:2.3 because he did not want to foster the notion that,

158:2.3 he would in any degree fulfill erroneous concepts of

158:2.5 J. did not take Peter, James, and John with him up to

158:2.5 He well knew that none of the twelve were qualified

158:2.5 therefore did he take with him only the apostles who

158:2.5 he desired to be alone to enjoy solitary communion.

158:3.2 J. had now received assurance of their fulfillment.

158:3.2 And Gabriel brought J. that assurance.

158:3.4 J. welcomed this testimony regarding the success of

158:3.4 but he noted that his Father did not indicate that the

158:3.5 After this celestial visitation J. sought to know his

158:3.5 This was the significance of the transfiguration to J..

158:3.6 J. held informal converse with these, his Sons of

158:4.1 when J. and his companions arrived at the camp.

158:4.1 scribes and believing disciples who had tracked J.

158:4.2 who had arrived the preceding day in quest of J..

158:4.3 seeking J. that he might entreat him to cure his son.

158:4.3 J. was up on the mountain with the three apostles.

158:4.4 forty other persons who were looking for J.,

158:4.4 now that J. himself had accepted their confession

158:4.4 that he was indeed the Deliverer—at least he had

158:4.4 —at least he had admitted the fact of his divinity—

158:4.4 when James of Safed and his fellow seekers after J.

158:4.5 I would have J. cast out this devil that possesses my

158:4.6 J. is the Deliverer, and the keys of the kingdom

158:4.6 you unclean spirit; in the name of J. obey me.”

158:4.8 so, while J. was descending the mountain with the

158:4.8 could give him no idea as to when J. might return,


158:5.1 As J. drew near, the nine apostles were more than

158:5.1 They all rushed forward to greet J. and their three

158:5.2 When J. had listened to this recital, he touched the

158:5.2 he touched the kneeling father and bade him rise

158:5.2 he gave the near-by apostles a searching survey.

158:5.3 even the enemies of J., were astonished at what they

158:6.1 the twelve gathered about J., and Thomas said:

158:6.5 When J. had thus spoken to the twelve, he added

158:6.6 afraid to ask aught concerning what he had said,

158:7.1 J. and the twelve departed from Caesarea-Philippi

158:7.1 been shocked by this talk about the death of J..

158:7.1 whom J. knew would presently be coming along

158:7.1 he directed that they go on to Capernaum by the

158:7.1 And he did this because he knew that those who

158:7.1 they reckoned that J. and the apostles would fear

158:7.1 J. sought to elude his critics and the crowd which

158:7.1 that he might be alone with his apostles this day.

158:7.2 Andrew, speaking to J., said: “Master, my brethren

158:7.3 while he was yet speaking, Simon Peter, rushing

158:7.4 Peter spoke thus because he loved J.; but

158:7.4 the subtle suggestion of temptation that he change

158:7.4 it was because he detected the danger of permitting

158:7.4 that he turned upon Peter and the other apostles,

158:7.6 thus did J. make plain to the twelve the painful path

158:7.6 J. was not sending them alone into the conflict; he

158:7.6 alone into the conflict; he was leading them.

158:7.6 He asked only that they bravely follow.

158:7.7 J. was telling them something about the possibility

158:7.7 They only vaguely comprehended what he said about

158:7.8 J. had always been patient with their shortcomings,

158:7.9 In silence J. and the twelve started for their camp at

158:7.9 though they did not converse with J., they talked

158:8.1 J., knowing what it was that occupied their

158:8.2 When J. had finished speaking, they entered the boat

159:0.1 When J. and the twelve arrived at Magadan Park,

159:0.2 J. allotted four weeks to this tour, instructing his

159:0.2 He promised to visit them often during this time.

159:1.1 in answer to a disciple’s question, J. taught the

159:1.4 and when he heard J. thus speak, he asked: “Lord,

159:1.6 Thus did J. teach the dangers and illustrate the

159:1.6 J. invested legislative and judicial authority in the

159:1.6 J. sought always to minimize the elements of

159:2.1 J. went over to Gamala to visit John and those

159:2.1 John said to J.: “Master, yesterday I went over to

159:2.2 in this case J. was referring to man’s personal

159:2.4 This man, Aden, had been led to believe in J.

159:2.4 the testimony of the demented man whom J. healed

159:3.1 J. spent a day and a night and, in the course of the

159:3.14 And much more did J. teach this group of believers

159:4.1 And then went J. over to Abila, where Nathaniel

159:4.1 Nathaniel took J. away from the others and asked:

159:4.1 When J. heard the question of his bewildered apostle

159:5.1 J. taught the disciples about the positive nature of

159:5.1 he intimated that some parts of the Scripture were

159:5.7 J., day by day, appropriated the cream of the

159:5.7 J. made the care of God for man like the solicitude

159:5.7 J. took the best of the Jewish religion and

159:5.8 J. put the spirit of positive action into the passive

159:5.8 J. enjoined the positive doing of that which his

159:5.8 He did not teach that the essence of his religion

159:5.9 J. did not hesitate to appropriate the better half of a

159:5.9 the better half of a Scripture while he repudiated the

159:5.9 he took from the Scripture which reads: “You shall

159:5.9 J. appropriated the positive portion of this Scripture

159:5.9 He even opposed negative or purely passive

159:5.9 J. required his followers to react positively and

159:5.10 J. did not advocate the practice of negative

159:5.10 And he so lived himself in that “he went about doing

159:5.10 many parables which he later spoke to his followers.

159:5.10 He never exhorted his followers patiently to bear

159:5.11 When J. instructed his apostles that they should,

159:5.11 he referred not so much to a literal second coat as to

159:5.11 J. abhorred the idea of retaliation or of becoming

159:5.11 On this occasion he taught them the three ways of

159:5.16 but not until J. came, did men hear about a God who

159:5.16 This positive note in religion J. extended even to his

159:5.16 And he converted the negative golden rule into a

159:5.17 teaching J. unfailingly avoided distracting details.

159:5.17 He shunned flowery language and avoided the mere

159:5.17 He habitually put large meanings into small

159:5.17 J. reversed the current meanings of many terms,

159:5.17 He most effectively employed the antithesis,

159:5.17 J. brought the philosophy of religion from heaven

159:5.17 He portrayed the elemental needs of the soul with

159:6.1 without the inspiration of the personal presence of J.

159:6.3 in touch with each other and with J. and the apostles

159:6.3 funds, not only for the sustenance of J. and his

159:6.5 J. and his associates prepared to take a week’s rest

160:0.1 J. enjoyed a period of almost complete rest, but

160:0.1 This Greek had recently become a disciple of J.

160:0.1 authoritative version of the gospel from either J. or

160:0.1 he did receive him graciously and directed that

160:1.10 methods of problem solving I have learned from J.,

160:1.10 I refer to that which he so consistently practices,

160:1.10 which he has so faithfully taught you, the isolation

160:1.11 the custom of J. in going apart by himself to

160:3.1 J. has taught us that God lives in man; then how

160:5.7 The religion of J. transcends all our former concepts

160:5.7 in that he not only portrays his Father as the ideal of

160:5.10 I see in the teachings of J., religion at its best.

161:0.1 J. surprised all by announcing that early the next day

161:0.1 he and the twelve apostles would start for Jerusalem

161:0.1 He directed that the evangelists visit the believers in

161:0.2 And so, while J. and the ten were on their way to

161:1.3 they had asked J. to come to their rescue, but he

161:1.6 was the general belief that J. was the Eternal Son.)

161:1.7 2. Since J. was equal with the Father, and since this

161:1.8 3. That J. was on terms of mutual association and

161:1.8 communication with man; that J. was the Son of

161:1.8 understanding; that J. and the Father were one.

161:1.8 That J. maintained at one and the same time

161:1.8 the personality of J. demonstrated the personality

161:1.10 Rodan had been influenced by the teaching of J.,

161:1.11 I am satisfied to end the argument and to accept J.


161:2.1 the teaching dealing with the divine nature of J.,

161:2.2 1. J. has admitted his divinity, and we believe him.

161:2.2 only by believing that he is the Son of God as well as

161:2.3 He is the most truly unselfish person we have ever

161:2.3 He is the friend even of sinners;

161:2.3 he dares to love his enemies.

161:2.3 He is very loyal to us.

161:2.3 While he does not hesitate to reprove us, it is plain

161:2.3 it is plain to all that he truly loves us.

161:2.3 comprehend his mission, he has been a faithful

161:2.3 While he makes no use of flattery,

161:2.3 he does treat us all with equal kindness;

161:2.3 he is invariably tender and compassionate.

161:2.3 He has shared his life and everything else with us.

161:2.4 3. We think J. is divine because he never does wrong

161:2.4 he never does wrong; he makes no mistakes.

161:2.4 He lives in perfect accord with the Father’s will.

161:2.4 He never repents of misdeeds because he

161:2.4 he transgresses none of the Father’s laws.

161:2.4 He prays for us and with us, but he never asks us

161:2.4 We believe that he is consistently sinless.

161:2.4 He claims to live a perfect life, and we acknowledge

161:2.4 and we acknowledge that he does.

161:2.4 He even professes to forgive sins and does heal

161:2.4 And he has seemed to be thus perfect in his

161:2.4 evil, recognize these elements of goodness in J..

161:2.4 He is both meek and fearless.

161:2.4 He seems to approve of our belief in his divinity.

161:2.4 He is either what he professes to be, or else he is

161:2.4 or else he is the greatest hypocrite and fraud the

161:2.4 We are persuaded that he is just what he claims to

161:2.5 convince us that he is a combination of humanity

161:2.5 He unfailingly responds to the spectacle of human

161:2.5 He is quick to recognize and generous to

161:2.5 He is so just and fair and at the same time so

161:2.5 He grieves over the spiritual obstinacy of the people

161:2.6 He seems to know the thoughts of men’s minds

161:2.6 And he is always sympathetic with our troubled

161:2.6 He seems to possess all our human emotions, but

161:2.6 He strongly loves goodness and equally hates sin.

161:2.6 He possesses a superhuman consciousness of the

161:2.6 He prays like a man but performs like a God.

161:2.6 He seems to foreknow things;

161:2.6 he even now dares to speak about his death,

161:2.6 While he is kind, he is also brave and courageous.

161:2.6 He never falters in doing his duty.

161:2.7 He also seems to know about the thoughts of his

161:2.7 He undoubtedly has communion with celestial

161:2.7 he unquestionably lives on a spiritual plane far above

161:2.7 He asks us questions to draw us out, not to gain

161:2.8 he has never denied that he came from the Father

161:2.8 He speaks with the authority of a divine teacher.

161:2.8 He is assertive, positive, and authoritative.

161:2.8 Even John the Baptist, when he heard J. speak,

161:2.8 declared that he was the Son of God.

161:2.8 He seems to be so sufficient within himself.

161:2.8 He craves not the support of the multitude;

161:2.8 he is indifferent to the opinions of men.

161:2.8 He is brave and yet so free from pride.

161:2.9 He constantly talks about God as an ever-present

161:2.9 as an ever-present associate in all that he does.

161:2.9 He goes about doing good, for God seems to be in

161:2.9 He makes the most astounding assertions about

161:2.9 statements which would be absurd if he were not

161:2.9 He once declared, “Before Abraham was, I am.”

161:2.9 He has definitely claimed divinity;

161:2.9 he professes to be in partnership with God.

161:2.9 He well-nigh exhausts the possibilities of language

161:2.9 He dares to assert that he and the Father are one.

161:2.9 He says that any one who has seen him has seen

161:2.9 And he says and does all these tremendous things

161:2.9 He alludes to his association with the Father in the

161:2.9 same manner that he refers to his association with us

161:2.9 He seems to be so sure about God and speaks of

161:2.10 he appears to communicate directly with his Father.

161:2.10 that he talks with God, as it were, face to face.

161:2.10 He seems to know the future as well as the past.

161:2.10 He simply could not be all of this and do all of the

161:2.10 things unless he were something more than human.

161:2.10 We know he is human, we are sure of that, but we

161:2.10 but we are almost equally sure that he is also divine.

161:2.10 We believe that he is divine.

161:2.10 We are convinced that he is the Son of Man and the

161:3.1 divinity was a gradual growth in the mind of J.

161:3.1 After he became fully self-conscious of his divine

161:3.1 he seems to have possessed the power of variously

161:3.1 it was entirely optional with J. whether to depend

161:3.1 At times he appeared to avail himself of only that

161:3.1 he appeared to act with such fullness of knowledge

161:3.2 the theory that he could, at will, self-limit his divinity

161:3.2 he frequently withheld from his associates his

161:3.2 that he was aware of the nature of their thinking

161:3.2 We understand that he did not wish his followers

161:3.2 too fully that he was able to discern their thoughts

161:3.2 He did not desire too far to transcend the concept of

161:3.3 We are convinced that he used both these techniques

161:3.3 to specify which method he may have employed.

162:0.1 When J started up to Jerusalem with the ten apostles

162:0.1 he planned to go through Samaria, that being the

162:0.1 J. sent Philip and Matthew over to a village on the

162:0.1 These people knew very little about J., and they

162:0.2 up to J. and said: “Master, we pray you to give us

162:0.2 But when J. heard these words of vengeance,

162:0.2 he turned upon the sons of Zebedee and severely

162:0.3 J. and the ten stopped for the night at the village

162:0.4 J. and the twelve remained in the vicinity of

162:0.4 J. himself went into the city only a few times,

162:0.4 He spent a portion of October with Abner and his

162:1.1 the followers of J. had implored him to go to

162:1.1 now that he had actually come to Jerusalem to teach,

162:1.1 Knowing that the Sanhedrin had sought to bring J.

162:1.2 During the feast of tabernacles J. went boldly into

162:1.2 This he did in spite of the efforts of his apostles to

162:1.3 Judas had dared to think that J. had fled in haste into

162:1.3 fled because he feared the Jewish leaders and Herod
