(page 3 of 15)


Bethlehem, 89:vision is discouraging. In all kingdoms we find death and disease, and in the animal and humanBethlehem, 96:having proved to them Who He was, He faced the death which lay ahead of Him, and the interveningBethlehem, 143:the infinite Power, which works through life and death alike, through sorrow and joy, through unionBethlehem, 161:the secret was fatal, for it brought about the death of Jesus. He was condemned as messiah althoughBethlehem, 161:steps. Christ Himself laid no emphasis upon the death on the Cross as being the apex of His lifeBethlehem, 162:of us which makes us sons of the Father, not His death which makes us sons. Nowhere in the GospelBethlehem, 176:we emphasize the necessity of realizing that the death of the historical Christ upon the Cross wasBethlehem, 178:of pagan deities (mostly virgin-born and done to death in some way or other in their efforts toBethlehem, 178:Mithra; so was the Greek Hercules who overcame Death though his body was consumed in the burningBethlehem, 179:was tempted, and fasted forty days, was done to death, and his second coming looked for so eagerlyBethlehem, 179:He came; and what is the significance of His death to the average human being today? Are the factsBethlehem, 180:be a time when the story of the birth and the death of the world Savior will not be of the utmostBethlehem, 186:and its purpose is completed, and to this the death of Christ bears testimony. But the importantBethlehem, 186:testimony. But the important point is not His death, though that was climactic in the evolutionaryBethlehem, 186:in which men and all forms would be free from death - a kingdom of which the Man released from theBethlehem, 186:pay the price, and, passing through the gates of death, attain to a joyful resurrection. St. PaulBethlehem, 187:the very deeps of its being humanity is tired of death. Its only rest lies in the belief that theBethlehem, 187:in the belief that the ultimate victory is over death, and that some day death will be abolished.Bethlehem, 187:victory is over death, and that some day death will be abolished. This we shall go into moreBethlehem, 187:that the race is so imbued with the thought of death that it has been the line of least resistanceBethlehem, 187:least resistance for theology to emphasize the death of Christ, and to omit to lay the majorBethlehem, 187:emphasis upon the renewal of life to which that death was the prelude. This practice will endBethlehem, 188:Christ of history passed through the gates of death for us. The cosmic [189] Christ its still dyingBethlehem, 190:as its pivotal teaching. The need of a death unto things material, the tendency of man to sin andBethlehem, 190:of adjusting our sinful natures. There is a death unto life, and a need to "die daily," (I Cor.,Bethlehem, 194:and in His Person as perfect man He died the death of the Cross to show us (in picture form andBethlehem, 195:a direct meaning." (Ibid., p. 166.) But His death was also the consummating act of a life ofBethlehem, 199:Cross of Christ as the [199] instrument of His death, have absorbed men's attention, whilst ChristBethlehem, 200:from eternal punishment for their sins by the death of Christ upon the Cross, the sinner guilty ofBethlehem, 200:an unkind word being as much responsible for the death of Christ as the vilest murderer. Finally,Bethlehem, 200:that Presence can be released in us only by the death of the lower nature, and this is what ChristBethlehem, 206:kingdom - by subjecting the lower nature to the death of the cross, and rising by the power of theBethlehem, 206:found in service to our fellow men, and Christ's death, viewed from one angle, was the logicalBethlehem, 206:have grasped and taught. Man triumphs through death and sacrifice. That superhuman Spirit, Christ,Bethlehem, 207:His steps - an example of sacrifice unto the death, of service rendered ceaselessly, ofBethlehem, 207:bonds could hold Him (not even the barriers of death). He remains the eternal God-Man, the SaviorBethlehem, 210:tells us that "the significance and value of the death of Christ springs from its inner quality. ItBethlehem, 210:that we have interpreted that sacrifice and that death in purely selfish terms. We are concernedBethlehem, 211:the turn which theology would give to His death, and endeavored to offset it by making theBethlehem, 211:dying thief one of the outstanding events at His death. He made no reference to the remission ofBethlehem, 211:service brought Him trouble and eventually the death of the Cross. We have fought for theBethlehem, 214:Him; He evidently, then, did not regard His death upon the Cross as adequate to that need. ThereBethlehem, 221:men pass through the gates of suffering and of death into the kingdom. Christ hung pendent betweenBethlehem, 224:shrouded the dying Christ. The moment of His death was prefaced by the words, "Father, into ThyBethlehem, 227:all such as were to benefit by his suffering and death. In the case of the Disciples it was merelyBethlehem, 228:case of Jesus it meant the bitter suffering of death. Both count as serving, inasmuch as theyBethlehem, 229:Christ we know neither what our life nor our death is; we do not know what God is nor what weBethlehem, 232:we have of the reality of their conviction that death could not hold the Savior, and that afterBethlehem, 232:death could not hold the Savior, and that after death He was present and living among them. It isBethlehem, 232:and courage, ready to face persecution and death, eager missionaries. What has given them this newBethlehem, 233:now, past all controversy, that He has overcome death, and that in the years that lie ahead theyBethlehem, 233:that in the years that lie ahead they will see death vanquished. That they expected an immediateBethlehem, 233:definitely manifesting upon earth, the fear of death is as strong as ever, and the fact ofBethlehem, 233:end of an age, we know that before long the hold death has on the human being, and the terror whichBethlehem, 233:human being, and the terror which the angel of death inspires, will disappear. They will vanishBethlehem, 233:They will vanish because we shall regard death as only another step on the way towards light andBethlehem, 233:and Ascension The key to the overcoming of death and to the processes of realizing the meaning andBethlehem, 234:over Nature itself, and at the end a conquest of death. If they had told the world, and us, theseBethlehem, 234:in it the seed of life, and that there was no death for the man who could follow in the steps ofBethlehem, 236:were all [236] subjected to the processes of death in some form or other, but they all rose againBethlehem, 236:celebrated in honor of his suffering and his death. The large wound which he received was shown,Bethlehem, 237:beyond, the body falling into a deep trance, the death of the crucified. The body was placed in aBethlehem, 238:as before our Christian world, through the death and resurrection of His beloved Son, Jesus Christ.Bethlehem, 238:beloved Son, Jesus Christ. This whole problem of death and immortality is engrossing a great dealBethlehem, 238:at this time. The World War brought the fact of death before the public consciousness in a new andBethlehem, 238:over twenty nations which had not been bereft by death, in some form or other. The world has passedBethlehem, 238:risen Christ. We have argued too long over the death of Christ, seeking to impose a narrowBethlehem, 239:something apparently persists beyond physical death has been demonstrated. The fact of immortalityBethlehem, 240:175, 176. It takes courage to face the fact of death, and to formulate with definiteness one'sBethlehem, 241:angle or from a purely selfish individual one. Death is the only event which we can predict withBethlehem, 241:the imminent and personal issue. People face death in many different ways; some bring to theBethlehem, 241:may not be evaded, and look up into the face of death with a gallant gesture because there isBethlehem, 241:into a condition wherein the thought of death is refused all lodgment in their consciousness, andBethlehem, 241:carries them triumphantly through the gate of death, but if one told them that this was simplyBethlehem, 241:it as untrue. They hide behind the name of God. Death can, however, be more than these things, andBethlehem, 242:Bringer of Changes. Thus we make the process of death a planned part of our entire life purpose. WeBethlehem, 242:and live with the expectation of its wonder. Death thus faced, and regarded as a prelude to furtherBethlehem, 242:the prelude for the stupendous episode of dying. Death brings us release - temporary perhaps,Bethlehem, 242:whether one believes (as many millions do) that death is only an interlude in a life of steadilyBethlehem, 243:the overcoming of the last enemy, whose name is Death. This questioning of belief, and thisBethlehem, 243:is basic. The Tibetans speak of the process of death as that of "entering into the clear coldBethlehem, 243:W. Y. Evans-Wentz, p. 29.) It is possible that death can be best regarded as the experience whichBethlehem, 243:our minds the realization that when we speak of death we are referring to a process which concernsBethlehem, 243:right when it pointed out that: "Certain is the death of what is born, and certain is the birth ofBethlehem, 244:the same idea in the following beautiful words: "Death is to life as marble to the sculptor, WaitsBethlehem, 244:Waits for the touch that lets the soul go free; Death is that moment when the swimmer feels TheBethlehem, 244:of one's attitude to the whole question of death and immortality can frequently serve to clearBethlehem, 244:How do we know that the process of death brings about such definite changes in our consciousnessBethlehem, 244:in the fact that, after having passed through death and risen again, He was essentially the sameBethlehem, 244:May it not be the same with ourselves? May not death simply remove limitation in the physicalBethlehem, 247:are considered, the life of service (leading to death) and of resurrection (leading to fullBethlehem, 248:immortality when he said that "no-one knows what death is, and whether it is not the greatest ofBethlehem, 248:is feared as if it were the supreme evil... When death comes near to man that which is mortal inBethlehem, 248:these He demonstrated perfectly, and therefore death could not hold Him, nor could the chains ofBethlehem, 249:in a sudden perfecting through the process of death itself, or in a mental acceptance of the deathBethlehem, 249:death itself, or in a mental acceptance of the death of Jesus, which he calls "conversion"; he mayBethlehem, 249:which he calls "conversion"; he may regard death as the door into a place of discipline andBethlehem, 249:soul, which precedes birth and proceeds after death. Life in the flesh is a trial and a probation;Bethlehem, 249:Life in the flesh is a trial and a probation; death, the release and the return to the soul'sBethlehem, 251:to perfection in Him, overcoming the tendency to death inherent in the natural man.
