Paul was certainly departed
from this life, but as he had
been living so long already in
the spiritual life he probably
did not notice so much differ 1
ence ill the change as carnally
minded men do. Peter was still
alive nt Rome, & the beloved
disciple outlived even Domit
ian; possibly he took up his a
bode at EpheSUS in Asia soon
after the siege and destruction
of J e r u s a 1 e m ill 70. A D.J
(ami S, the Lord's brother had
n put to death by stoning in
6a A I); his successor after 70
V 1>. was Simeon son of Cleo
phas. At Alexandria, Annianus
the first bishop died in Domit-
i,in's reign so we nre told by
Eusebius. Von will notice that
in the last few sentences I have
had oi c ision to m e n t i on tin
eit> of Rome, the province of
ASIA, and the merchant city of
sol
Alexandriaso far at least had
the Christ's religion been carri-
ed by the Christ's Churchmen
within 60 years of the death of
their liege lord.
A notable lesson for our own
times emerges here. Please note
that travelling for persons, who
were not officials of the govern
ment, was none too easy. Let
me give you some ex a m pies.
The rhetor Aristides took 100
days to go from Mysia, opposite
Constant i u 0 p I e, to Rome by
road The regular time for a
merchant ship from the Sea of
Azov (Pains Maeotis) to Rhodes
was in days, ami from Rhodes
to Alexandria i days. If you
wanted to go up the Nile as far
as Sy< ie, it would take you to
days longer. It would be a
quick voyage if your ship reach
ed Rome from Carthage iii 3
days. From Cadi/ to the mouth
of the Tiber was reckoned as a
7 days sea trip, and likewise
from Messii ily to Mex
andria I suppose the 500 or
iooo ton merchantman of the
the Flavian period could do a
bout 7 knots pet lour. You
will smile w Inn I tell you how
lose to the wind they could go;
they could onlj sail within 6 or
7 points of the wind! You can
imagine that the numbers of
days per voyage mentioned a-
bove might, on occasion, be in-
creased considerably.
From Puteoli to Corinth
was a 5 days' vi yage with an
other week added on if you pro
ceeded to Alexandria- just a
bout the time taken to go from
New York to Liverpool nowa
davs, but there were no aimi
able stewardesses and tuxuri us
saloons with all the appoint
ments of a modern first i

lu the name of Justice, as a
citizen of the United States <>f
America, we hereby (jive ex
pressioo to our conception of a
nation's attitude to itself and
and t he world atlarge.
Shall the nation humble it
self before Clod and pray for
the Day of Established Peace,
ixsrting its God-given sense
of self protection, and thereby
gain peace, or by folding its
bands and crying, "Lord, Lord !
We Thy children humbly ask
for Thy protection hear Thou
our prayer!"
Shall we (the country) pursue
ourcourse under Divine admoni-
tion, or shall we follow human
conception of attainment
through non resistance.
Let the Scripture speak for
Divine Utterance ; and let Paul
sum up the matter, for spirit
ual safety and natural safety
follow the same law.
