The Call of Truth

One of the most striking incidents in the ministry of Christ Jesus is that recorded in the seventh chapter of John's gospel. From this we see that the leading exponents of a materialistic sense of religionthe learned rabbis and the priests—found that they were fast losing their influence with the people. The pride of earthly learning was as nothing before the living words of this Teacher who had arisen in their midst, one who not only gave a new meaning to the familiar words of the law and the Prophets, but who spake as never man spake, and who dared to say of his own utterances, "They are spirit, and they are life."

His wonderful words only served to illuminate his more wonderful works, and together they proved that apathy, or content with the untrue and the unspiritual, is impossible in the atmosphere of Truth. The priests, who thus found themselves at a great disadvantage, sought every opportunity to destroy his influence and stop his work, but their attempts only proved the impotence of error.
