Excerpt from Jesus the Christ: A Study of the Messiah and His Mission, According to Holy Scriptures Both, Ancient and Modern
To the student of history this Man among men stands first, foremost, and alone, as a directing personality in the world's progression. Mankind has never produced a leader to rank with Him. Regarded solely as a historic personage He is unique. Judged by the standard of human estimation, Jesus of Nazareth is supreme among men by reason of the excellence of His personal character, the simplicity, beauty, and genuine worth of His precepts, and the inﬂuence of His example and doctrines in the advancement of the race. T 0 these distinguishing characteristics of surpassing greatness the devout Christian soul adds an attribute that far exceeds the sum of all the others - the divinity of Christ's origin and the eternal reality of His status as Lord and God.
Christian and unbeliever alike acknowledge His suprem acy as a Man, and respect the epoch-making significance of His birth. Christ was born in the meridian of time b and His life on earth marked at once the culmination of the past and the inauguration of an era distinctive in human hope, endeavor, and achievement. His advent determined a new order in the reckoning of the years; and by common consent the centuries antedating His birth have been counted back ward from the pivotal event and are designated accordingly. The rise and fall of dynasties, the birth and dissolution of na tions, all the cycles of history as to war and peace, as to prosperity and adversity, as to health and pestilence, seasons of plenty and of famine, the awful happenings of earthquake and storm, the triumphs of invention and discovery, the epochs of man's development in godliness and the long periods of his dwindling in unbelief - all the occurrences that make history - are chronicled throughout Christendom by reference to the year before or after the birth of Jesus Christ.
