XI

(they) answered, “No one ever spoke like this man!” John 7:46 (ESV)

It would be well for the Church of Christ if ministers and teachers of religion would strive more to speak after their Lord’s pattern. Let them remember that elegant bombastic language, and a sensational, theatrical style of address, are utterly unlike their Master. Let them realize, that an eloquent simplicity is the hightest attainment of public speaking.
