THE BIRTH OF JESUS. i)r.ci:.ijiu:u 25 not tih: day or ins initTii, NiuueroiiN AmliorlticN Uuolcd la I'rovo. II111I ClirUtnuiN Iluy l tint Tlio Way on Which Our Savior Win Horn. ,, To the Evening Sewe. Tho sacred volume nowhore informs us in what year of tho world or of Rome, or what time In tho yoar our Savior was born; nor doos it, in any manner, authorize tho colobratioD of such birthday, oven if wo know whon It came . Yot our enrly oduoatiou lias done mu oh towards hading ub to con eidor both Christmas and New Year's day saored. When, however, we loarn mat Christinas is wholly n, man made institution, and by a Ron. mi Catholic bishop at that, our minds may yield sufficiently to permit an investlgatlon;aud when wo learn that It was more than three hundred years after Christ before the 25th day of De cember was colobrated in commem oration of the birth of oiirSavIo', we ma3', with reasonable certainty.doubt its sacredness; but when wo loarn that December was chosen for that occasion on account of a heathon superstition and not becnueo that was tho clay or month in which Christ was born, wo should i-onslder it obli gatory upon us to at least seok furtiier light upon tho subject. It Is a fact, as wo shall seo that ttie Christian era was first proposed flvo hundred years after Christ. "Tho observance of tho 23th of De cember is ascribed to Julius, Bishop of Rome, A. D. 337-355. Tho East church had previously observed tho 0th of January in commemoration of botli baptism and of tlio birth of Christ. Before ihe end of the fourth century the East and West churches had exchanged festivals, tho West adopting Jau. 0th in commemoration of our Lord's baptism, and tho East church adopted Deo. 25th in commem oration of our Lord's hirth. Among the causes that operated in fixing tills period, was tho fact that most heathen nations regarded tho winter solstice as the beginning of the lenowed life and aotivityof tho powers of uaturo." Johnson's Eucyclopodia, sub, Christmas. Wo may naturally 011 quire whother the weather is sultablo lor Hoiks and their keepors to bo out nights in that latltudo, and hud au answer in Cy. Britanlca- "There is, however, a difficulty In accoptlng this hb tho dato of tho nativity. Docombor being the highth of tlio rainy season in Judoa, when neither Hooks nor shepherds could havo boon at 11 ght In tho field at Bothlehoui." Subjoot Christmas. The above, considering tlio high oharaotor of tho authorities quoted, would seem almost orqulto conolulyo that Deo. 25th was not Uhrlst's birth day, but I will introduce undisputed evideuco of this faot later on. Luke- informs ub In his gospol that Christ was born at tlio tlmo that Cyrenius was govenor of Syria, and at tho first taxing by Augustus Caesar. Wo must now learn at what tlmo Cyrenius was governor of Syria In Johnson's Cyclopodia wo road "Recont investigations havo roudered ithlghlv probublo that he (Cyrenius) held that ollloo twlco; first from 4 to 1 1). C. It was during this governorship that Christ was born, Luko2 2, and again from 0 to 11 A D. Subject Cyrenius. If this is not posltlvo, it is pretty strong as corroborative evidence. Matthow informs us that Christ was btiru "In tho days of Herod tho king" and in tho same chapter we learn that Joseph and Mary with tlio Iloly Child, went to Egpyt for fear of Herod, and returned after Ills death. Matt a. Now If wo can learn I lie dto of Herod's death; It may assist us In linding the date of tho Savior's birth. Win. Smith, LL. D. Classical Ex aminer of tho University of Loudon, and a highly credible author, suys that "Modern writers.with hardly an exception, believed that thoDionysian Caloulat on, (our common ora) places the nativity somo yours too lute; al though they dlfl'or as to tho amount of orror." History of the Bible, p 577 in a uoto. Quoting from Josophus wo learn ihat Horod died tho 5th d-y after ho caused Antlpoter to ho slain . . , having resigned, sinco ho had been declared king by tho Romans, thirty-soven years." Ant. book 17 chap 8 soo. 1. This also oxnntlv ngreos with this hlstorlaus statement m War book 1. oh . 33, soo. 8. "Tho title of king of Judea was conferred on him (Hetod) 40 B. C." Johnson's Cy , Hub. Herod. This also agrees with Chambers Enoy., "Herod was king ot the Jews in Judoa for aboi t thirty-soven years, from 40 B. C, to 4 B. C."-Cy. Bntunica, Sub. Herod. Josophus tellB ub that tho vorv night that Herod had Matthias "burned thoro was an oolipso of the moon. Ant. 22;5-4. The following Is an ac companying note: "This eclipse of tho moon Is of tho greatest conse quence for tho determination of time for tho death of Horod and Antipator, and lor tho birth and ontiro chrono logy of Jesus Christ It happonod March 18 in tho yoar of tho Julian period 4710 and tho 4th boforo the Christian oro." p. 400. Josenhus toes ontogivotho particulars of Horod' death, but does not give tho oxact ante 01 the ovout. "He (Horod) died between March 18th and Anrilfich." Johnson's Cy.. Sub., Horod. That year Tassovor came on tho 5th of April, at whioh tlmo Herod was dead. Will. Smith. LL. D.. savs: "Hnrn.1 expired flvo days aftor the death of Antipator, ihortly boforo tho PasH ovor, 4 B C." In the samo volume aud on tho same pago, in a noto, wo read. "Thore is no doubt that tho common ora of the birth of our Havlor is wrung by four years. Christ was uorn shortly beforo tho death of nerod, and wo know tho latter died four years beforo the Chrlstiau ora." P. 507. In Johnson's Universal Cyclopodia wo learn that '.'tlio groat era from whioh Chiistlan nations computo their tlmo, ono supposed to corres pond to thodatoof tlio birth of Christ, but. according to somo of tho best authorities, Christ was born about four years boforo tho coninioncomont of our era. Tho nractico of reckoning timo from the supposed birth, of Christ appears to havo boon Intro duced In tho sixth contury." Sub. Christian Era. Tho samo authority says, "Tho Christian era first propos ed in 527 A. D " Sub. Chronology. This is also in oxaot iifrroomont with Chambers' Enoyoloprdla. Rev. Justin Edwards, In his anno tated New Testament says, "John the Baptist born 4 B. C. Christ born four years beforo tho ora known as A. D." Seo Chronological Tablo, pago 435.
