It is presumed that every teacher will be supplied monthly with the
Notes on the Scripture Lessons, and that he will, by the study of them,
and by regular weekly attendance at the preparation class, make himself
master of the subject, and thus be thoroughly prepared to teach the
lessons for the day.
It should be remembered that, in consequence of the limited space
at command, in some cases a large portion of the lesson selected for the
elder classes is necessarily omitted. The teacher, therefore, may have to
introduce the subject, or supply a connecting link in the middle. When
a short line is inserted, it is to show that either the selection is from
two separate chapters, or the continuity of the reading is broken. This
gives a larger scope in the selection, and with care will make the lesson

meaning made plain to the scholars. The other sections should be dealt
with in a similar manner. Examination by questions should follow each

the teacher desires to impress on the mind and heart should be constantly
kept in view, and gradually brought out as the lesson is proceeded with.
The close of the teaching will consist of a brief and earnest attempt to
press home the practical application of these truths in the most forcible
and affectionate manner.
If these suggestions be duly considered, and, as far as applicable to each
particular case, be carried out with an earnest spirit, a loving heart, and
in prayerful dependence on the Holy Spirit, teachers will not fail to secure
the blessing of Him who hath said, “My Word shall not return unto
