Peter in Samaria HIGHLIGHTS OF THE SUNDAY SCHOOL LESSON (The International Uniform Lesson on the above topic for Feb. 26 is Acts S: 4-25, the Golden Text being Isaiah 55:1, "Come ye, buy and eat; yea. come buy wine and milk without money and without price.") BY NEWMAN CAMPBELL TODAY WE start with the work of the apostles in converting Samaritans to Christianity. At first it was thought that only Jews should be taught the new religion. Jesus, you remember, talked about it to the Samaritans, who. you know, were not considered the equals of the Jews. We will go back later to this time. It seems that in Samaria there was a disciple named Philip who was preaching the Word to the people. The apostles were at Jeru- .salem. and when they heard that 'Philip was preaching at Samaria, they sent Peter and John to help him. Now. when Peter and John converted some one. they would lay their hands on him, and the Holy Ghost would descend upon the convert mid five him power. f At Samaria at this same time was a magician named Simon. He thought this gift of the Holy Ghost was some kind of trick, like his magic, and so he asked Peter to show him how to do it and offered him money if he would. Peter naturally refused and rebuked the man. saying-: "Thy money perish with thee, because thou 'hast thought that the gift of God may be purchased with money. Thou haflt neither part nor lot in this matter: for thy heart is not right In the sight of God. Repent, therefore, of this thy wickedness, and pray God, if perhaps the thought of thine heart may be forgiven thee." Simon realized that the matter was much deeper than he had th-'Jght and was sorry he had been so flippant. He therefore said to Peter "Pray ye to the Lord for me.' that none of these things which ye have spoken come upon me. How many things can you think of that you value most highly which no money could buy? Love, Copyright, 1939, King fcatulfl Synjicatc, Inc. of course, the love of your mother and father, of brothers, sisters and friends: then bodily health--your sight, hearing, the use of your limbs and the rest of your body. And the glories of nature which even the poorest can enjoy every bit as much as the rich--rain and sunshine, the sun. moon and stars, soft winds, flowers and foliage, sky and clouds, hills and vales, rivers and lakes, the ocean, green grass and yellow sand. Now we go back to before Christ's death, when He talked to the Samaritan woman at the well. This was the talk in which He told the woman, "God ia spirit, and they that woiship Him must worship in spirit and in truth." His disciples rame back and found Him talking to this woman, and then He sent her to the city to call her men folk to listen to Him. Many of the Samaritans were converted at this time, and Jesus staved with them for two days. The next story is the one we all know so well, but which is always worth retelling. Jesus and His disciples went to Jerusalem for the Passover. Going to the temple, Jesus found it filled with "those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting there: "And when He had made a scourge of small cords. He drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep and the oxen, and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables: "And said unto them that sold doves, 'Take these things hence: make not My Father's house an house of merchandise'." The last reference in the week's reading is from James, and ia called "Religion Undefilcd." It reads: "Let every man he swift to hear, slow to speak, and slow to wrath: "For the wrath of man worketh not the righteousness of God. "Be ye doers of the word and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves. · "Pure religion and undefilcd before God and the Father is this, to visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world." ises that stimulate our going. "Take the promises of Jesus out o[ modem life and what a drab world we would have. Every step of progress in the last 1800 years has been inspired by the promise ol abundant life and life eternal."

Now we go back to the time when Jesus was on earth, when He, too, preached to Samaritans and converted them to Christianity after His talk to the woman at the well. Later He went to Jerusalem, and finding men selling: and bargaining in the temple, He drove them out with a scourge, saying, "Make not My Father's house aa house of merchandise."
