Excerpt from Young People's Life of Christ: Containing the Story of Our Saviour From the Lowly Manger to His Sublime Ascension
That so many persons are not well informed concerning the history of Christ is largely due to the fact that they did not study His character and teachings in early life. While our young people learn about the renowned characters of history, Homer, Caesar, Hannibal. Alexander, Napoleon, vvash ington and others, let them not be ignorant of the one sublime Prophet, Priest and King, whose burning glory eclipses all the dazzling achievements of these lesser lights. We cannot render a more important and valuable service to the young than to put into their hands avolume that tells them in plain and simple language of Jesus of Nazareth. Here they have the gems of divine wisdom and tread on holy ground.
This beautiful volume traces the life of Christ from Bethlehem to Calvary and the tomb. It pictures the scene in the lowly manger; His ﬂight into Egypt; His discussion with the doctors in the temple; His baptism in the Jordan; His journeys in Galilee and His calling men to follow Him; His com forting words to the bereaved; His healing of the sick; His blessing little children; His dazzling transfiguration; His many deeds of love and mercy; His agony in Gethsemane, and tragic death upon the cross. Lo, He bursts the bars of the tomb and rises triumphantly above the victory of death, Him self the glorious Conqueror.
