CONVICTION OF SIN.
John xvi. 7-11. Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: It is expedient for
you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not
come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you. And
when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of right-

me; of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see
me no more; of judgment, because the prince of this world is
THE GOOD SAMARITAN.
Luke x. 29-34.

came down a certain priest that way; and when he saw him, he
passed by on the other side. And likewise a Levite, when he
was at the place, came and looked on him, and passed by on the
other side. But a certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came
where he was and when he saw him, he had compassion on
him, and went to him, and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil
and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an
inn, and took care of him.
ABRAHAM OFFERING UP ISAAC.
Genesis xxii. 1, 2. And it came to pass after these things, that God
did tempt Abraham, and said unto him, Abraham: And he said,
Behold, here I am. And he said, Take now thy son, thine only
son, Isaac, whom thou lovest, and get thee into the land of Mo-
riah; and offer him there for a burnt-offering upon one of the
mountains which I will tell thee of.
