THE DEATH OF JESUS EDITED BY NATHANIEL MICKLEM, M.A.WE have been trying to understand the aim of Jesus and his means, and have now to seek an understanding of the death which he incurred in his endeavour. His early work in Galilee was very popular. The authority of his utterances amazed his hearers, but his healings were an even greater attraction, so that the demand for the healer began to impede the preacher (Mark i. 3538, 45). In view of the boldness of his speech it is not strange that he met with criticism from the local scribes, but they seem at least sometimes to have accepted his defence (Mark ii. 12, "They were all amazed and glorified God "), and Jesus, where he differs from them, treats them with a courteous deference (Mark ii. 17, 21, 22) ; while the plot of Mark iii. 6 belongs to a later time (vide infra).

To this time must be referred his upbraiding of the Galilasan cities " because they repented not." He had not succeeded in Galilee, and now work there was no longer safe. His words, " If the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which were done in you, they would have repented long ago" (Matt. xi. 21 ; Luke x. 13), suggest the question, Why then did he not turn to the heathen? And his strange manner with the Syrophoenician woman (Mark vii. 24-30; Matt. xv. 21-28, especially verse 24) may be the result of struggle with a temptation to do so. But Israel alone, in virtue of its peculiar religious development, could give him the way he wanted to the whole world, despite the fact that from the same source grew
