fords of Oie lower Jordan NOTES AND COMMENTS Then cometh Jesus to be baptized Jesus did not come as the Pharisees had done in a critical spirit but in full sympathy with Johns move meat and with the definite purpose of Identifying Himself with it Suffer it row Deferential halfyielding yet sirong in its very gentleness Bruce For thus it becometh us to fulfill all rightecuEness To John it teemed appropriate that be should baptize this pure and kingly Soul that had just come to him Jesus did not discuss proprie ties with John but said that it was right and HI duty to be baptized It did not imply confession of tin on Jesus part it meant identifying Himself with Johns movement which Helielleved to be of God Compare Luke 72430 It was too a dedication of Himself to the great work that was calling Him The heavens were opened unto Him Mark says He saw the heavens H is not said that this was seen except by Christ It was a vision coming to Him at the crisis of His life The baptism was not purely physical To him it was a baptism with the Spirit of God and with power to do the great work that was opening before him He saw the Spirit of God descending as a dove Not a dove but as a dove The symbol of all that Is gentle and pure and good A voice This was Jesus heavenly recognition an assurance that God was with Him It was for Himself and His strengthening not for the people Luke adds that the vision came while Jesus was praying We must remember when the tempta tion came It was just after Jesus pub lie consecration to His great work The voice of God was still ringing in His earsThou art My beloved Son He was conscious as never before of Him self or His power not necessarily at this time miraculous power and of His great mission Consciousness of power quickens the imagination and two pos sibilities rush into the mind the right use of that power and a less high and more popular a wrong use of it The first temptation came to Jesus in connection with the human side of His nature He was hungry Hunger represented human wants and the question was whether Sonsbip was to mean exemption from these or loyal accept ance of them as part of Messiahs ex perience At bottom the issue raised was selfishness or selfsacriflce Bruce He was working out the prob lem of what Hie life must be He was the Son of God and was it necessary for Him to suffer even the pangs of hun ger like the very poor Must He be the brother of all men to that extent A life of physical comfort was within His reach He had only to put out His hand and take it but in taking it He would have been laying down the cross that He knew it was His mission to bear through life The attractions were great the struggle real but He did not for an instant swerve from His purpose There were greater things to be sidered in life than physical comfort than bread Man shall not live by bread alone The second temptation can be better understood if we remember that there was a belief among the Jews recorded in the Talmud Yalkut on Is 601 quoted by Edersheim to the effect that the deliverer the Messiah was to pear on the roof of the temple In a blaze of glory and proclaim Himself The question seems to have Entered His mind ae to whether He could not yield a little to popular notions of the siah and be the Messiah described in beinguntrueappear in a spectacular way and win instant acceptance Must He be un popular to be the Christ Must He start in on the path that led straight to a third temptation was to gain earthly power a worldwide empire by compromise with evil Jesus was a man and had ambitipns Great good might come from such an empire with such a sovereign The end might justify the meansbut no the Saviour indig neatly puts the thought sway He will not favor the Pharisees nor cultivate the rich young ruler nor wink atthings that are wrong in the lives of common people because to attack those things would be unpleasant and unpopular He can bow only to conscience and to God Short and to the Point Faith fears no famine There are no failures for the faithful They who have the Giver have all gifts There is no progress without God in front Gratitude Is one of the best dishes at any mealIthe better of tomorrow Our efficiency depends on whether God is our sufficiency The ideal week Is made up of worship ful work and reverent rest There are no riches
