... 1:1-3. What did God after the.creation had been
completed? Verse 31. .

earth. Adam and Eve had 'free access to the tree of life.
No taint of sin, or shadow of death, marred the fair crea-
tion.... The great Jehovah had laid the foundation of the
eal,th; he had dressed the whole world in the garb of beauty,
and had filled it with things useful to man; he had created
all the wonders of the .land and of the sea. In six days the ') •
great work of creation. had been' /

2. How were our first parents created? Ecc. 7:29. What
were they required to undergo in order to prove their
loyalty before God?

cure, 10 alt must be tested."-P.P., p. 1I

NOTE: "After his transgression, Adam at first
imagined himself entering upon a higher state of exis-
tence. But soon the thought of his sin filled him with
terror.... The love and eace which had been theirs was
and in its p ace they. felt a sense of sin, a dread
o e future, a nakedness of soul. The robe of light
which had enshrouded them, now disappeared, and to sup-
ply its place they <endeavoured to fashion for themselves
a covering; for they could not, while unclothed, meet the
eye of God and holy angels."-P.P., p. 57.

7. Did the first parents truly acknowledge and repent of
their sin, or did they try to blame somebody else?

but instead of manifesting penitence, he endeavoured to cast
the blame upon his wife, and thus upon God himself: 'The.
woman whom thou gavest to be with' me, she gave me of
the tree, and I did eat.' He' who, from love to Eve, had
deliberately chosen to forfeit the approval of God, his home
in Paradise, and an eternal life of joy, could now, after his
fall, endeav.our to make his companion, and even the Crea-
tor himself, responsible 'for the transgression. So terrible
is the power of sin. When the woman was asked, ''ihat is
this that thou hast done?' she .answered, 'The serpent be-
guiled me, an.Q I did eat.' 'Why didst thou create the sel'-
pent? Why didst thou suffer him to enter Eden? '-these
were the questions implied in her .excuse for her sin.
Thus, like Adam, she charged God with the responsibility
of their faIl."-P.P., pp. 57, 58.

of the law, and bring him again into harmony with Heaven.
. . . The angels prostrated themselves at the feet of their
Commande'r, and offered to become a sacrifice for man.

promised sacrifice and the necessity of sacrificial offerings.
IS g ex l' ssed no penitence for sin. He felt, as many
now feel, that it woUla lie an of weak-
ness to follow the exact plan marked out by God, of.
trusting his salvation wholly to the atonement of the
IlroWi§e( He chose the course 0 se - ependence.

lies from the Egyptians, and gather .within their own dwel-
lings. Had the Israelite disregarded in any particular the '
directions given them, had they neglected to separate their

of heart, because of our sins, The use of unleavened bread

nance of the Lord's Supper was instituted as a memorit'.l of
the same event of which the Passover had been a type."-

made known through the high priest. When questions
were brought for decision before the Lord, a halo of light
encircling the precious stone at the right was a token of
the divine consent or approval, while a cloud shadowing
the stone at the left was an evidence of denial or dis-
approbation."-P.P., p. 351. •

ANSWER: "As the priest, in removing the sins from
the sanctuary, confessed them upon the head of the scape-
goat, so Christ will place all these sins upon Satan, the
originator and instigator of sin. The scapegoat, bearing
the sins of Israel, was sent away 'unto a land not in-
habited;' so Satan, bearing the guilt of all the sins which
he has. caused God's I(eople to commit, will be for a thou-
sand years confined to the earth, which will then be deso-
late, without inhabitant, and he wiII at last suffer the full
penalty of sin in the fires that shall destroy all the wicked.
Thus the great plan of redemption will reach its accom-
plishment in the final eradication of sjn, and the deliverance

ing, and deep searching of heart."-P.P., p. 355.
9. What began after the day of atonement? Lev. 23:34-

2. What judgment came over two sons of Aaron as a re-
sult of using strange fire? Lev. 10:1, 2.

calamity fell upon the family of the high priest. At the
hour of worship, as the prayers and praise of the people
were ascending to God, two ,of the sons of Aaron took
each his censer, and burned fragrant incense thereon, to
rise as a sweet odor before the Lord. But they trans-
gressed his command by fhe use of 'strange fire.' For
burning the incense they took common instead of the sacred
fire which God himself had kindled, and which he had
commanded to be used for this purpose. For this sin, a
fire went out from the Lord and devoured them in the
sight of the people. . . . Nadab and Abihu would never
have committed that fatal sin, had they not first become
partly intoxicated by the free use of wine. They unde\j,·-
stood that the most careful and solemn preparation was
necessary before presenting themselves in the sanctuary
where the divine presence was manifested; but by intem-
pemnce they were disqualified for their holy o ~ Their
minds became confused, and their moral perceptions dulled,
so that they could not discern the difference I;>etween the
sacred and the common."--P.P., pp. 359, 361, 362.
3. What report is given us concerning the sons of Eli?

to offering sacrifices; but these wicked men carried their
disregard of authority into the service of God, and did not
give attention to the law of the offerings which were to

result.!ld in the defeat of Israel, with great slaughter. Thirty
thousand men lay qead upon the field, and the ark of God
was 'ta)l:en, the two sons of Eli having fallen while fighting
to defend it. Thus again was left upon the page of history
a testimony for all future ages,-that the iniquity of God's
professed people will not go unpunished. The greater the
knowledge of God's will, the greater the sin of those who
disregard it."-P.P.., pp. 583, 584.
7. What did the first king of Israel do when he was, tested
by God? 1 Sam. 13:8-12; 1 Peter 4,:15.
NOTE: "The time for the proving of Saul had come.
He was now to show whether or not he would depend on
God, and patiently wait according to his command, thus
revealing himself as one whom God could trust in trying
places as the !'Uler of his people, or whether he would be
vacillating, and unworthy of the sacred responsibility that
had devolved upon l1im. . . . God had directed that only
those consecrate"d to the office should present sacrifices be-
fore him. But Saul commanded, 'Bring hither a' burnt-
offering'; and, equipped as he was with armor and weapons
of war, he approached the altar, and offered sacrifice be-
• fore God."-P,P., p. 618.
