THE HOSANNA-DAY IN THE LIFE OF JESUS CHRIST. BY REV. DAVID GREGG "And the multitudes that went before, and that followed, cried, saying : ' Hosanna to the son of David ; blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord ; Hosanna in the highest! ' " — Matt. xxi. 9. The week upon which we enter to-day is known in the calendar of Christendom as Passion Week. Passion Week is that week in the biography of Jesus which ends with the cross and the silent tomb. It is the fullest week of all time. It is crowded to overflowing. Upon the part of Jesus it is crowded with golden utterances and magni-ficent deeds and infinite sacrifices. Upon the part of man it is crowded with wicked plottings, and denials, and betrayals, and treasons, and false oaths, and diabolical deeds.

It is humanity bowing before some thrilling thought, some inspiring fact, some glori-ous doctrine, which has found visibility in life, a place in history, or which has ensphered itself in some beneficent institution. Now, no soul can do homage to a grand thought, or fact, or doctrine, or institution without being inspired and elevated and made grand itself. Association with the grand always means assimilation to the grand. Espe-cially is this so when the soul deals with Christ. No man can honor Christ or celebrate any great fact in His life without receiving from Christ an impulse that will make him Christ-like. There were great events in His life which made the

days upon which they occurred memorable, and every one of these days may be kept with soul profit. There was the day of His birth, with its singing angels, and shekinah light, and new star ; there was the day of His crucifixion, with its darkened heavens and quaking earth and rent veil; there was the day of His resurrection, with its empty tomb, and its thrilling rumors, and its meeting with the living Christ Himself. And here in this Scripture is the great hosanna-dav with its multitudes all on fire with enthusiasm, and its typal events which are pictures of great things to come. Xo one can enter into the spirit of these days without being blest Although Pas-THE HOSA NMA -DA Y. 213 sion Week closes with a black cloud, it opens with a sunburst.
