HELP THOSE WOMENBY CHARLES F. DEEMS, D.D., LL.D. "l ENTREAT THEE, TRUE YOKE-FELLOW, HELP THOSE WOMEN WHO LABORED WITH ME IN THE GOSPEL." PHILIPPIAXS, IV. 3. " Made of a woman !" This is Paul's brief and sublime description of the incarnation of the Divine. In regard to everything, politics, philosophy, art, science, social life, men, women, children, the household, the Church, and the State, the day when Mary in Bethlehem held her first-born in her arms is the dividing-line of all human history. Nothing has been the same since. We can-not reason in regard to men and events before Jesus as if they were such men and such events as might be now. If the old Hebrew, Greek, and Roman politicians, legislators, philosophers,

Perhaps the most remarkable characteristic of the external changes of society is that they have been mainly wrought through a change effected by the life of Jesus, in the position and work — may I not say in the very character ? — of woman. She has not been the same since that wonderful Birth. And she has been in such po-sition as to bring the influence of her changed character and modes of life to bear on all society.

We cannot, without an effort, conceive the state of affairs in regard to women, their

training, their position, their influence, before Jesus came. It vvas so totally different from what it now is ! There was nothing in the cul-ture of power under the Roman civilization, noth-ing in the culture of philosophy and taste under the Greek civilization, nothing in the culture of religion under the Hebrew civilization, which is at all like the position and influence of women under the culture of Christian civilization. That one Bethlehem babe of that simple Jewish maiden has done more for Roman, Greek, and Hebrew men than the Ceesars, the Alexanders, and the Maccabees, with their swords, or the Numas, the Lycurguses, and the Moseses with their tables of laws. Whatever may have been the case among heathen nations, we might suppose that, under the Hebrew theocracy and in the Jewish church, woman would have had a place not unlike that which she occupies under Christianity.
