JOHN CUNNINGHAM GEIKIE
Scottish clergyman
(1824 - 1906)

A moment more, and all was over. The cloud had passed as suddenly as it rose. Far and wide, over the vanquished throngs of His enemies, with a loud voice, as if uttering His shout of eternal victory before entering into His glory, He cried, "it is finished!" Then, more gently, came the words, "Father, into Thy hands I commend my spirit." A moment more, and there arose a great cry, as of mortal agony; the head fell. He was dead.
      - [Death of Christ]

An undivided heart, which worships God alone, and trusts Him as it should, is raised above anxiety for earthly wants.
      - [Trust]

But now, the sounds of infancy, always nearest the heart, and sure to come to the lips in our deepest emotion, returned in His anguish; and in words which He had learned at His mother's knee, His heart uttered its last wail--"Eloi! Eloi! lama sabachthani?" "My God! My God! why hast Thou forsaken me?"
      - [Death of Christ]

Jesus throws down the dividing prejudices of nationality, and teaches universal love without distinction of race, merit or rank. A man's neighbor, henceforth, was every one who needed help, even an enemy. All men, from the slave to the highest, were son's of one Father in heaven, and should feel and act toward each other, as brethren. No human standard of virtue would suffice; no imitations of the loftiest examples among men. Moral perfection had been recognized alike by heathen and Jews, as found only in likeness to the Divine, and that Jesus proclaims as, henceforth, the one ideal for all humanity. With a sublime enthusiasm and brotherly love for the race. He rises above his age, and announces a common Father of all mankind, and one grand spiritual ideal in resemblance to Him.
      - [Brotherhood]

Our character is but the stamp on our souls of the free choice of good or evil we have made through life.
      - [Character]

Poor shepherdless sheep! It was his delight, as the Good Shepherd, to lead them to rich pastures; and as they sat and stood around Him they forgot their bodily wants in the beauty and power of His words.
      - [Christ]
