Not illustrated. 1905 edition. Excerpt: ...He spake to the multitude in parables that they might not apprehend the spiritual significance of His meanings, and degrade these as they had done all the teachings of Moses and the prophets. But all in the multitude who were of His own system, though not quite comprehending His meaning, were drawn to Him to follow His teaching with their hearts. And thus He gathered around Him a few of His own, and to these He communicated the Father's message. But even these did not recognise who He was. They felt their kinship to Him, but could not define it. They were drawn to follow Him, though they could not tell why. They were always happy in His fellowship, and loved to hear from Him of the Father, though their lower mind could not grasp the full significance of all He said. It was an incident of this kind which called forth from him the rebuke to Phillip: "Have I been solongtime with thee, and yet dost thou not know Me, Phillip?" They were always wondering who He was and whence He came, but dare not ask for fear of seeming to doubt what He told them. But He never told them who He was, except on the occasion when it is recorded that Peter affirmed that He was the Christ--the Son of the Living God. But that incident was not in the original story of His life, as told either by Matthew or His beloved disciple. Nor was it ever affirmed by Peter. It was an incident in the "upper room," when the Master was telling them of His approaching death by the hands of the Jews, because of His teaching concerning their own blindness and hypocrasy. He had then to unfold certain of the Mysteries of which He had never spoken to them till that hour. These Mysteries concerned themselves. It was then that the The Christian's Passover. 199 more
