LESSON III. APRIL 20; ACTS 10:34-
44—PETER AND CORNELIUS.
tjolden Text—“God Is No Respecter of
Pereoue" — Act* 10:34 — Character
Sketches of Cornelius ami Peter—
Methods of Divine Providence.
T. Cornelius. A Character Sketch.
Family. Cornelius was a member of an
ancient and distinguished Italian famllj,
the Cornelian gens, or family, of which
the famous Roman generals, the Seiplos
and Sulla, were members.
Position. He was a Homan centurion,
that Is„ captain of a company of ono
hundred men, ttie Italian band, probably
volunteers from Italy. Cornelius, with
Ills troops, were the guardians ot Cesa-
rea. the Roman capital, and one of the
seaports of Judea. It was a large and
flourishing city at the time of this* lesson,
built by 11 trod the Great, and named
from Caesar Augustus.
Early Life. AVe know nothing of this,
except that he must have been brought
up In heathenism, with all its cruelties
and unsatisfactory worship, which left
his heart hungry, like the prodigal feed-
ing on husks.
Character. A man in the position of
Cornelius had abundant opportunities of
becoming acquainted with the Jewish re-
ligion, their one true God, and the lofti-
ness of their code of morals. Cornelius,
like the Roman centurion at Capernaurn,
received the truth, and worshiped Goa
in spirit and in truth, but did not become
a Jewish proselyte, accepting all their
ritual and forms of worship.
II. Peter. On the AA'ay to Larger
Truths and Greater Usefulness. Peter,
of all the twelve apostles, was the one
best prepared, by liis natural character
to receive the vision and act upon it. He
would do what he knew to be right nit.i-
out regard to consequences, perliaps
without seeing them. Moreover I eter
was one of the most inlluential of the
apostles, and what he did would have
more weight with the church than the
same act done by most of the others.
III. Peter taught by a Vision. Corne-
Hus sent two trusty and sympathetic
men of his household, with a soldier at-
tendant to Joppa. As they drew neai
the city, Peter, unconscious of their ap-
proach or mission, went as usual to the
cool retirement of the housetop for his
midday season of prayer.
During this season of devotion Peter
fell into a trance, the form of the vision
being shaped by his hunger. He saw the
heavens opened to reveal to him spirit-
ual things, and from it came down an
extended sheet, the four corners of
which were held up, as It were, by cords
let down from the four extremities of
the opened sky. The significance of the
outstretched sheet, as a figure of the
wide world, and the four corners as the
directions into which the gospel was now
to be borne forth Into all the world, has
often been dwelt upon."—Cambridge Bi-
ble. This sheet was filled with all kinds
of animals, domestic and wild, clean and
unclean, together, and creeping things,
which are unclean to the Jews.
Peter was hungry, and he was invited
to kill and eat. But he refused to satis-
fy his hunger by breaking the law ^ of
God. But the voice replied, ”\Y hat God
hath cleansed call not thou common.
God, who had made the former law for
a wise purpose, now declared that its
work was done, its obligation was re-
moved, as the rules for a boy may not
apply to a man, as the staging necessary
in building a house must be taken away
when the house is done.
The Need of the Vision. 1. It was
necessary that there should be a broad-
ening of the church from a Jewish to a
universal church, including Gentiles as
well as Jews. AVe should "see in every
human being a soul for which Christ has
poured out his cleansing blood," and do
our utmost that he may receive the di-
vine cleansing. And when he is cleanse*1,
he is our brother, be he native or foreign-
er, black or white ignorant or educated,
from the slums or from a palace.
IV. The Meeting at Cornelius’ House
in Cesarea. Peter was still in perplexity,
when the three men from Cornelius
reached the house of Simon the tanner,
and inquired for him. The Spirit hade
him go with them. The next day Peter,
with 6i.x leading dteclples of Joppa (Acts
11:12). accompanied the three messengers
to Cesarea. They reached Cornelius j
house on the fourth day, at 3 o clock, and j
found the Roman centurion with his rein-
tive.n und friends assembled and waiting.
The centurion welcomed Peter, and Peter
inquired why he Lad been sent for. < or-
uelius tells why he sent for Peter and
asks him to speak.
