Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Excerpt from Outlines of Church History: For the Use of the Middle Class in the Theological Seminary in Princeton; From the Birth of Christ to A. D. 1648 Jesus, who is called the Christ, was born in Judea, shortly before the death of Herod I., which took place between March 13th and April 4th, in the year 750 U. C. The birth of Jesus could not have been later than two or three months before that event; it may have been earlier by one, or even two years. Our common era assumes it to have occurred in 754 U. C., at least four years too late. The day of his birth is not determined. At that epoch, the state of religion in the west of Asia and Europe was one of great depression. Rationalism had separated between faith and intelligence; east of the Indus it had constructed two great philosophical religions; west of the Tigris it had set up philosophy as a substitute for religion, and carried the convictions of the greater number of the educated. Confucianism and Buddhism, as religions, were accepted by vast multitudes; Greek philosophy did not profess to be religion, and scorned the ignorant populace. Between the Indus and the Tigris ruled the semi-barbarous Parthian, maintaining a degenerate Magism. Avestan monotheism was almost buried out of sight under that dominion. The pure faith of the Hebrews was confined to few. Everywhere the religious condition of the multitudes, to whom philosophy or philosophical religion was inaccessible, was exceedingly degraded. All the countries lying around the Mediterranean were under one ruler. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
