1888 Sabbath School Helps (for next quarter)

Alonzo T. Jones writes a comprehensive and practical study on the Holy Spirit that is a refreshing blessing to all who read it. It gives insights far beyond the quarterly, thus giving a depth and breadth to class discussions that otherwise wouldn't happen.

For convenience, below are links to the Jones material and also the Quarterly. Download both and print, share, or just keep them handy on your device.

Christ's by Crucifixion.

"They that are Christ's have crucified the flesh with the passions and lusts." It is by death that we become joined to Christ. As many as are baptized into Christ, have put on Christ (Gal. 5:27), and as many as have been baptized into Christ, have been baptized into His death (Rom. 6:3). "Our old man is crucified with Him, that the body of sin might be destroyed, that henceforth we should not serve sin. For he that is dead is freed from sin." Rom. 6:6, 7.

Commentary on Galatian 3:1-5

Christ Crucified before Us. 

"Who did bewitch you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was openly set forth crucified?" Jesus was set forth before the Galatians, when Paul preached to them, as openly crucified before their eyes. So vivid was the presentation, that they could actually see Christ crucified. It was not skillful word-painting on the part of Paul, nor imagination on the part of the Galatians, for then it would have been only deception.

“The Anointing Teaches You All Things”

E. J. Waggoner, London

The reason why the disciples mourned and wept and were sad after the crucifixion of Jesus, is given in John 20:9: “For as yet they did not know the Scripture, that He must rise again from the dead.” This evidently does not mean that they were not familiar with the words of that scripture, for “the voices of the prophets'” were “read in their synagogue every Sabbath day;”' and the sacred writings were the chief study of every Jew. Yet notwithstanding this, “they did not know the Scripture.”

“The Work of the Holy Spirit”

E. J. Waggoner

WHAT will the Spirit do for us when we receive Him? —He will do everything. “He will guide you into all truth,” “and He will tell you things to come” (John 16:13). He to the sevenfold Spirit of God— “the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord” (Isa. 11:2). “There is a spirit in man, and the breath of the Almighty gives him understanding” (Job 32:8). Every gift of God to man comes by the Spirit.
