Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1819 edition. Excerpt: ...February, J. P. 4710-10 months= 13th of April, J. P. 4709. This computation, therefore, assigns to the oath the very same date which our previous and independent reasonings have concluded to be the most probable date of our Saviour's nativity. Therefore the oath and the taxing being the same, and Christ being born during the taxing, that conclusion is confirmed. Yet is the computation not absolutely adverse to those who would place them either in May or March; a little more or a little less time than we have allowed for might have been easily consumed in the events which succeeded each other, and our computation may not therefore be free from all inaccuracy. But of this I feel tolerably secure, that the error, as to any important purposes to which we may wish to apply the date, will be found altogether immaterial. It will still fix the nativity of Jesus to the early part of J. P. 4709. SECTION IV. An Objection to the Correctness of the preceding Calculations and Date considered and answered. I Am aware of only one objection which can be fairly urged against the correctness of the preceding calculations, and it may be stated in the following terms. When Antipater was sent to Rome by his father, Josephus states that "together with Antipater there went to Rome Syllaeus the Arabian," who was accused of several things by Antipater and Aretas. Josephus then proceeds to relate the origin of these accusations, and mentions Corinthus and two other Arabians, accomplices of Syllaeus, who had been seized and examined and confessed themselves guilty before Herod.--Herod had informed Saturninus of everything, and "so Saturninus," (says Josephus, ) "upon Herod's discovering the whole to him, sent them to Rome."
