November 2017 -Voice of the Spirit

 
 Once again, the time has come for us to celebrate the birth of the Messiah. As you know, our primary sources for this event are the Infancy Narratives in the Gospels of Luke (Ch.1&2) and Matthew (Ch. 1&2). These are actually two very different Christmas stories that cannot be readily reconciled. Let us briefly consider them both. In order to properly appreciate Luke’s account, we need to understand the world into which Jesus was born. Augustus was emperor in Rome and, under his wise and benevolent leadership, the Empire was at peace and prospering. Roman fleets had cleared the seaways of pirates, and Roman garrisons had ensured against civil unrest and protected the highways from brigands. Certainly there were the poor, the marginalised and the oppressed in this world but, all things considered, this was a ’Golden Age’ and pretty much “as good as it gets” - at the purely human level.
