Saying, What think you of Christ? whose son is he? They say to him, The son of David.…
I once asked a man what he thought, and he replied frankly, "I suppose I never do think of Jesus Christ." Then I inquired when he was born. He gave the date — 1843. "B.C. or A.D.?" I kept on. He smiled, as if he conjectured I might deem him an antediluvian. But I asked soberly, "Before Christ or after Christ?" He was silent, and I continued, "Have you been dating letters for twenty intelligent years without even reflecting that you were daily commemorating the nativity of Jesus Christ? Have you actually formed no opinion concerning that personage whose advent among men changed the reckoning of time, whose birthday shook the race into a new era, as His crucifixion shook the planet with a new earthquake?"
