'Even there...'

For the Lesson titled "God" from June 30 - July 6, 2014

In April 1970, when the Apollo 13 spacecraft’s lunar landing was aborted after an oxygen tank exploded, the three-man crew faced life-threatening adversities in outer space for several days before their dramatic splashdown in the South Pacific. Christian Science Monitor cartoonist Guernsey LePelley published an unforgettable cartoon picturing a tiny Apollo 13 spacecraft safely sheltered within two mighty celestial hands. The cartoon’s caption, taken from Psalm 139, appears in Section 3 of this week’s Bible Lesson, titled “God”: “Even there … thy right hand shall hold me” (Psalms 139:10, citation 11).

The account of Jacob’s dream at Bethel (house of God) in Section 3 underscores the overall theme of this week’s Lesson, given in the Golden Text: “The Lord your God is with you wherever you go” (Joshua 1:9, New King James Version). The patriarch’s desperate situation must have seemed as desolate to him as that of the Apollo 13 crew marooned in outer space.
