In a country where illiteracy is rare and education is not only within the grasp of almost every child but even literally forced upon them, it might seem superfluous to suggest, as my subject does, that there not only might be but actually are some, yea many, who do not know how to read. One need not be necessarily illiterate to know not how to read. In fact, the majority of people who read have never mastered the art. Most everyone is able to pick up a book or newspaper and assimilate its contents, but not everyone knows how to...

Definition of the Subject. It is but proper that at the outset our subject be defined. The subject as it reads is already limited. In this essay our subject says we will not treat of “education” generally, but of education as this historically existed and as it was an institution in Israel. True, even thus defined, our subject has significance for the general concept “education” and for the practical task of educating our children in our day and world. This we hope to point out in its own proper place. Speaking of “Israel” one can think of the whole church...

The existence of the divorce evil, particularly in our “democratic” country (democratic also in a spiritual sense of the word), need not be established. It is an indisputable fact.

In this essay will be brought out the excellency of the priesthood of Christ as compared first with that of Aaron and second with that of Melchisedec.

As the performance of this task consists in attending to the argument of the writer of the epistle to the Hebrews concerning the above mentioned priesthoods, it is to this argument that we again turn. Briefly stated, it is this: Jesus was made an high priest after...

The question now is: what is that great good, the knowledge and consideration of which is sufficient to be a true and sole comfort in life and in death? The Heidelberg Catechism answers: “That I with body and soul, both in life and death, am not my own, but belong unto my faithful Savior Jesus Christ.” Here, too, one might easily be tempted to elaborate so as to anticipate practically the entire contents of the Catechism. He might set out to explain the meaning of “my faithful Savior,” and to set forth in detail what it implies to belong to...

Wherefore I also, after I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus, and love unto all the saints, cease not to give thanks for you, making mention of you in my prayers; that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the Spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints. Eph. 1:15-18 Striking intercession! Striking from the viewpoint of...
