An elucidation of the first eleven chapters of Genesis. (7) " The Person and Work of Jesus Christ." By Bishop John L. Nuelsen, D. D., Omaha, Neb. "Ev e ry Old Testament problem becomes in course of time a New Testament question. Every Biblical ques- tion places us after a while face to face with Him who is the center of the whole Bible, with Jesus Christ. In the present discussion over the person and Gospel of Jesus Christ, I shall confine myself to pointing out briefly some of the most in- We see many women on Sunday carry- ing two books strapped or cased together, Mrs. Eddy's "Science and Health," etc., and the Holy Bible.

One de- nies material reality, sin, sickness, pain, death; the other affirms them. One claims divinity for man, the other declares that God created man, and is Himself the sole, unique; independent One. The Bible is the fountain of all wisdom; the Eddyite bible is the dregs of all folly philosoph- ically and scientifically. To see those books bound up in one bundle is at once the astonishment and indignation of all right minded and revereni people.

An exposition of the doctrine of the Chris- tian's hope as related to the Second Com- ing of our Lord. What a feast of fat things for the laver of Truth.

All of the volumes can be obtained from our Book Department.

He was the King of Israel, the Lord of the house they defiled, the Law giver, and Vindicator, whose whole life was a continued calm restraint of the "remainder of wrath," but in two instances, at he beginning and at the end, He gave a warning in a foretaste of the "Wr a th of the Lamb," the Judge of all the earth.

Some would use one, some the other, some both. Christ had " u se for government." He taught loyalty to Ceasar, and obedience to authority (Mat. 22:21; 23:23).
