Open the flaps, upon earth He was both “God” and and using the letters in the word our “neighbor.” To obey the great “CORNER,” complete the following comma.ndment, what t h e p e o p l e - wo r d s : “REJECTED, CONDEMNED, really needed to do was just to lové CRUCIFIED, SMITTEN, DEATH and the Lord Jesus. And today what we FORSAKEN.” Turn the paper over and really think of God and our neighbor trace the lines, in order that the cube will depend upon what we think of may be seen clearly oh the back of Jesus. Do you love Him? the paper. Begin the lesson with the back facing the audience.) LESSON: What do you think this picture might represent? “A square block.”

Years ago a terrific storm was sweeping upon the northwest coasts The people in the city said one to another, “The lighthouse has gone down,” but three days afterward the keeper ■of the lighthouse was seen upon the streets of the city. One of his friends said to him, “We heard that the lighthouse had gone down in the storm.” . The old keeper looked at him in amazement and said, “Gone down! It is true the storm was the fiercest I have ever known, but in all the time she never shook.” This is true of our Foundation. Storms of temptation and trial may beset us, but the Foundation standeth sure.—J. Wilbur Chapman, in Five Thousand Best Modern Illustrations, by Hallock. Jesus' Good Answer M atthew 21 :23 to 23 :39 MEMORY VERSE: “Let us love one another: for love is of God” (1 John 4:7). APPROACH: Sometimes in school our teachers ask us questions rapidly, one right after the other, to see whether they can trip us up. Although hoped, that He would make a wrong answer. Do you think He ever did? LESSON STORY: The ones who questioned Him were the religious leaders of that day. They made a fine show of religion, but it was all on the outside. They dressed in fine robes and made long public prayers, but their hearts were far from God. If they had loved God, they would have loved His Son, but instead they hated Him and Were always hoping to confuse Him. They asked Him all sorts of tricky questions, but Jesus knew all the answers. When they asked Him what the greatest commandment was, He said,, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind . . . And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself” (Matt. 22:37, 39). The answers which Jesus gave were just as true as “two times two is four.” The multiplication table will never change, a n d J e s u s ’ “g o o d answer” will stand forever, too. If He said that these two were the they seem to be trying to catch us, they are r e a l l y hoping t h a t we will get the right answers. But when the Lord Jesus was upon earth, He had m a n y questions a s k e d H i m by those who secretly

It represents more than a square block. It suggests a solid rock, such as are often used in buildings. Did you know that Jesus Christ was spoken of as being a “stone” ? In Mark 12:10 we read of “the stone which the builders rejected.” This statement refers to Christ. As I turn this paper ovèr, we see the word' “REJECTED” written on the stone. The Jewish leaders rejected Christ. Next, we find the words “CONDEMNED, CRUCIFIED, SMITTEN, DEATH, FORSAKEN.” Again speaking of Mark 12:10, I want to read the complete statement: “The stone which the builders re­ jected is become the head of the corner." As I fold these flaps over, we will find what happenéd. All that we see is the word “CORNER,” sug­ gesting that the One who was re­ jected, condemned, »crucified, smitten, and forsaken has become the corner stone. 29 And I appoint unto you a kingdom, as my Father hath appointed unto me; 30 That ye may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom, and sit on thrones judging the twelve tribes of Israel. LESSEN TEXT : Lk. 22:14-30. GOLDEN TEXT : “This do in remem­ brance of me” (Lk. 22:19). DEVOTIONAL READING: John 14:1-6. Outline and Exposition I. T he P assover (14-18) p 1 ^ HE PASSOVER reminded Israel that .their release from Egypt, I as wgll as their rank as a na­ tion, was based upon the shed­ ding of blood (Cf. Ex. 12). The Old Testament c o n t a i n s shadows of events to come, and the Passover was a shadow pointing onward to the coming of the Lamb of God whose blood would be the protection from judgment, not of one class of individ­ uals only, but of the whole world. But it is important to note that the Passover and the Lord’s Supper are two distinct observances — not the same. ^ he that sitteth at meat? but I am among you as he that serveth. 28 Ye are they which have continued with me in my temptations.

With desire I have desired to eat this passover with you before I suffer * 16 For I say unto you, I will not any more eat thereof, until it be fulfilled in the kingdom of God. 17 And he took the cup, and grave thanks, and said» Take this, and divide it among yourselves: 18 For I say unto you, I will not drink of the fruit of the vine, until the king­ dom of God shall come. 19 And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, say­ ing» This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. 20 Likewise also the cup after supper, saying, This cup is. the new testament in my blood, which is shed for you. 21 But, behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table. 22 And truly the Son of man goeth, as it was determined: but woe unto that man by whom he is betrayed! 23 And they began to inquire among themselves, which of them it was that should do this thing. 24 And there was also a strife among them, which of them should he accounted the greatest. 25 And hie said unto them. The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them t and they that exercise authority upon them are called benefactors. 26 But ye shall not be so: but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve.. 27 For whether is greater, he that sit- teth at meat, or he that serveth ?
