            Isaiah 9:5 – “For unto us a child is born…”

            Over eighteen centuries ago, the advent of a babe stamped a new impress on history.
            Little dreamed the Emperor, enthroned in his gorgeous palace upon the Capitoline Hill, that a babe slumbering in a manger in the obscure hamlet of Bethlehem, a remote province of Assyria, was to establish an empire before which the power of the Caesars must dwindle into significance.  When the child Jesus was born, all the nations known of that period were in subjection to the government of Rome.  Around the Mediterranean shores were clustered the thronged provinces and majestic cities, that gave Rome the palm of dynasties.  The Atlantic Ocean was an unexplored sea.  The Indies had but a fabulous existence.  Rome was then the world, and Caesar was the governor of Rome.  He could do what he pleased with the property, the liberty and lives of over three hundred millions of people comprising the Roman Empire.
