THE
LIFE OF OUR SAVIOR.



About four thousand years af-
ter the world was made, Jesus
Curusr, the Savior of mankind,
was born in the city of Rethle-
hem. As the city was at that
time full of people, there was no
room in any of the houses for
the parents of the Savior, and
they had to take up their abode
ina stable. Here, ina manger,
the Redeemer was born!

Herod, who was then king,
was afraid Curist would take
his throne from him, and he re-
solved, therefore, to destroy him
while he was yet but a babe.

But Joseph, the father of the
child, was told by an angel to
take the child and his mother





and go downto Egypt, lest Her-
od should kill him. And they
went, and staid there till Herod
died.

But the wicked king did nat
know that they were gone, and
he determined that the child
should not escape. So he gave
orders to kill all the children in
Bethlehem who were not two





yearsold, This cruel order was
obeyed, and all the poor little
children slain; but Jesus was
safe in the land of Egypt.
When the Savior had grown
up to manhood, he began to do
a great deal of goad in the world.
He healed the sick, the laine, and
the blind, and raised the dead to
life. He also told the Jews of



‘ i



all their wickedness; and for this
reason they hated him and resol-
ed to kill him.

Curist had twelve disciples,
and one of them, named Judas,
was hired by the Jews to betray
him. When Jesus sat down to
eat the Feast of the Passover
with his disciples, he told them
that one of their number woulda





betrayhim. This, said he, is the
last supper that we shall cat to-
gether. He thenwent out to the
Mount of Olives to pray. While
he was there, some armed men
came to take him. Then Judas
went up and kissed him. ‘This
was the sign by which he was to
let them know which was Jesus.





The soldiers then seized Jz
sus and took him before Pontius
Pilate, then governor of Judea
But Pilate could find no wrong
inhim. However, the Jews in-
sisted that he should be put to
death; and they mocked and
scoffed him, and spit upon him,

Finally, Pilate yielded to their

“wishes, and the Suvior was led :





“Zt Ss

out to be crucified. When nail-
ed upon the cross, he prayed for
all his enemies and then died.
Two thieves were also crucified
with him.

Thus died our divine Savior.
He died to save us from punish-
ment for our sins, and to secure
our eternal happiness. Thanks
be to thee, gracious Redeemer,
forever and eves!
