"It is my purpose also to give the names and numbers and dates of those who through love of innovation have run into the greatest evers. You CBS was not the first. Christian to write a history. In fact, he drew information from predecessors like Julius Africanus, but he was the first to attempt a history with such universal scope and sweep. He begins by recounting the life and Ministry of Christ drawn mostly from the New Testament but also from other non Christian sources especially the Jewish historian of the first century Josephus, he proceeds to trace the careers of the apostles as they went out to all the world telling the good news it is then that he proves his value to us as he rounds up traditions and legendary materials from many far-flung churches for many of these accounts, you CBS provides the only witness that has survived to modern times. He continues to tell the story of the church through the lives of the early fathers, many of whom will be familiar to listeners of this podcast Ignatius of Antea polycarp of Smyrna Melito of Sardis Iryna of Leone Justin Martyr and many others he details, persecutions and synods heresies in rebellions, disputes reconciliations. Whenever possible. He quotes extensively from primary sources. And he wasn't just retrieving material from the long ago past he was also reporting on current events. He told the story up to and including his own time. He published the first edition shortly before the year three hundred and he continued to update it in the years that followed. Those were of course, eventful years and he was not witnessing the action from a distance. He was caught up in the drama himself. In the year three, oh three, the Roman emperor diocletian called for a sweeping persecution of the church. It began with the burning of buildings, but proceeded to the demand for every individual to offer sacrifice or die. Many of the leading men of the Church in Palestine were rounded up and pamphlets was one of them. You see stood by his great teacher and all the while he was in prison, you CBS worked with him collaborating on books when pamphlets was put to death you see fled the city and took refuge abroad eventually making his way to the Egyptian desert. They are the authorities caught up with him and he was imprisoned to await execution, but the torturers never came for you CBS. Freedom came.

"The Legend of Saint George began with a fourth century Christian historian called Eusebie s of Caesar Ria. eusebie s recounted the story of a Roman soldier born to wealthy Christian parents when the Roman Emperor Diocletian issued an edict against Christians eusebie unnamed Roman soldier, tore it up and was subsequently tortured and executed for his defiance of the emperor. Later, authors would combine the sparse details from EUSEBIE SS story with biographical details from a different George born Cap Shia who had been executed in three, sixty, one, C E. The story of Georgia's encounter with dragon was not mentioned in any of the early Saint George Stories and it would not gain popularity until almost thousand years later originally written down in the thirteenth century by an Italian archbishop named Yakobus David Rajini it has become a template for every anglo-saxon dragon story that followed though the tail is clearly set in the late Roman Empire most illustrations and paintings presented in the context of the Crusades Saint. George is usually depicted wearing the red and white cross of a crusader, a symbol that would come to be known as Saint George's Cross. Framing Saint George's a crusader was a sort of visual cue. It told the viewer that George was not only a Christian saint but that he was also responsible for the spread of Christianity. He defeats the Dragon through the power of the cross that he wields along with his sword and later demands that the king and all his subjects convert to Christianity to repay his heroism. In these versions of the story the princess is often footnote but with the burgeoning popularity of the courtly romance, she began to take on a more important role. In later, iterations of the tale, the Princess Mary's George following her rescue. They're morally acceptable. Union is the inverse of the corruption and sin that would have been forced upon her by the dragon like most medieval weddings Georgia's marriage to the princess as an economic arrangement. George has earned the princess reward for killing the dragon much. In the way he earned the conversion of the villagers. Either way that consented those in question is irrelevant.

"Byzantine Empire had as its capital the city of Constantinople. What is now modern day? Istanbul history books will tell you that. The empire lasted over a thousand years. Under the Emperor Justinian in the year five, fifty five, the empire reached its greatest extent with territory around the Mediterranean. Egypt north, Africa the Balkans and the Levant. Over its millennium of existence they have ninety four different emperors, and it was the center of Orthodox Christianity. Time, the empire shrank by the time of its final defeat. The fall of Constantinople in fourteen fifty three to the Ottoman Turks, the empire had dwindled to what is today parts of eastern Turkey Greece and some of the Balkans. With all of that history, how was it possible to say that the Byzantine Empire didn't exist? And it's actually pretty easy. At no point in their one thousand some year history. Did they or anyone else ever call themselves Byzantine 's or referred to their empire as Byzantium. They consider themselves Roman. The Byzantine Empire was really nothing more than the continuation of the eastern Roman Empire. After the empire in the West fell in every real sense of the word, the Byzantine Empire was the Roman Empire. You can draw a direct line from the Byzantine emperors to the Emperor Augustus Julius. Caesar and the Roman Republic. To. How did this come about? Why don't we just call it? The Roman? Empire! Understand how the Roman Empire kept going until the renaissance. We need to go back to the Roman Emperor Diocletian. By the time Diocletian became emperor in the late third century, the Roman, empire had become very large and very difficult to centrally administer sending orders and getting updates from distant corners of the empire could take months in the year two, ninety, three Diocletian devised a new system for the Roman Empire, whereby would be split into two parts east, and West each part of the empire would be led by a senior emperor, called the Augustus and a junior emperor with the title of Caesar, the system was known as the tetrarchy. Diocletian was established as the Augustus in the east, and his top General Maximilian was the Augusta's in the West. This system lasted for about only twenty years as rivals and claimants flawed each other for power after the death of Diocletian. In the year three twelve, the two parts of the empire were unified once again under the rule of Ember Constantine the first as we know him as Constantine, the great who established a new capital city for the empire. A city called Nova. Or Rome and eventually became known as Constantinople the city that bears his name..

"JV program for Friday December the sixth tomorrow is the seventh for harbor Dave we all ought to be thinking about that in these maybe in the back of my mind if not in the forefront of our mind what that is all about what it is all about and the area was so Barbara there yeah something very weird he started playing a song a good sort of Christmas song yeah merry Christmas to an unknown likes to do that excited about Pearl Harbor day yeah right there is some farm conversations that need to be had this is of you know I am very close to the farm you mean I'm part of it I guess is the American family farmer show podcast brings information to farmers all around the country farm food family those are the things that we focus on a podcast and certainly the plate of the farmer what's going on the stress level is building and building and building because of the trade wars because of where the money is going and the it is not going that far yeah I know it's it's getting everybody knows it now pretty much everybody well I don't know if they do really really well I don't know and I feel like we talk about it here but I don't know that that's a national news and and even the candidates aren't talking about farms and farm issues by mayor Pete is and I think that that's probably a big reason why he had such a surge in Iowa but it's not on the take down the the the tip of everyone's tongue and it should be right sure should because it's your money sixteen billion dollars so far going to people who have Park Avenue addresses in New York in ocean Avenue addresses in Palm Beach I don't think they're too many farms on Park Avenue in this year's L. any on as an ordinary zero right exactly right so that's about it now as a result of the situation very interesting the three major or well as the two major farm organizations plus the largest of farm bank you've gotten together what are they going to do Victoria while recognizing of course the high levels of stress that affecting America's farmers and ranchers right now farm credit and American farm bureau federation and the national farmers union the three of them have all partner on a new program to train people who interact with farmers and ranchers to recognize signs of stress and then offer help so this is based on the farm stress program from Michigan State University and it was developed for the US department of agriculture for the farm serve his agency and it's a combination of online and in person training it will provide those new participants with skills to understand the sources of stress for the farmers they'll learn the warning signs of stress and suicide as we know we have talked about this a lot and on the farm show suicide with farmers is incredibly high yeah the rates of suicide or just inexcusable and so these people are now going to be trained to come up with communication strategies reduce the stigma related to mental health concerns which is also something that the farm community and in very rural areas sometimes they don't have access to mental health help and they don't have access to a therapist or sometimes internet is even spotting we also talked about that from a tax standpoint that rural America is really getting the shaft with this net neutrality the neutrality repeal and that it's really slanted against rural America which is where the farming community is so even if they want to do online therapy it's sometimes not even an option and so this new program there is going to they're really trying to have more of a hands on approach and it Wednesday December eleventh at eleven forty five AM they're gonna do a press conference and this will be streamed live and you can watch this through Michigan State University the American farm bureau is going to have it farm credit will also do it I'm assuming the national farmers union will have some sort of yeah they were way of people being able to watch this too and a bunch of representatives from Congress Collin Peterson who's a Democrat from Minnesota he's the chairman of the house agriculture committee he'll be there along with some other representatives from Georgia and Arkansas and Kansas and amongst other guests who will be talking about this issue and you know it's one of those things like we talk about this to eat it this is where government should be helping and unfortunately government honors so is spending billions of dollars given to people going to families that are friends of Sonny Perdue I'm not even sure I think I said this on the farm show this week that trump even really knows what's going on here I think produ is hoodwink him into the because he doesn't really have an affinity for it and I'm not sure he really even cares I and I don't mean that in the negative sense it just doesn't care because there are a lot of other things so I found him lying important not top of mind so in the meantime for used in the waist hand handed a big chunk of money to the farmers you may not know when our it's a idea helping a family now he is now but the fans I told you I got eighty nine dollars out of it that was what I I love this sixteen billion and a lot of people are my size a little bit bigger smaller and why bother even if it's an insult especially when you look at two hundred fifty thousand dollar checks going in some cases to six members of the same family who haven't have stock and a hedge fund and that is invested in is certain commodities that are traded in Chicago that's it that's their connection to agriculture why the hell are they getting dine and that's the kind of thing that really sets and that's what that bad management and the and the obvious flagrant violations of the public trust they're going on just it's it just is not that not acceptable isn't strong enough it's damnable and and you know number if there's a word we would use if this was act if if that if you describe that same scenario in another country we would say that is so corrupt that yeah we would call it in or other country yeah yeah it's correct and the other come and go ahead Jennifer no no no I just we're talking about how out of touch the government and as I was going to go into to my little Sir about what's happening in California right now but so finish up because this want to blow you out all they did was the stats are among suicides of adults number one group our veterans and number two farmers and then number three are kids but I've seen as I would say yeah yeah it's number three on the list farmers to the that's one what a disgrace for our country he really is a disgrace and people who there are different when it you can't cover the stuff up it did this this is this is what we consider ourselves a per progressive society not with those kind of stats we are all right so Jen Jen what do you have all right so there is a California farmer who is now fighting the government get get this the government is telling this guy he could no longer farm is land in California because they say that dirt is a pollutant that is with the EPA has is Jr and contaminated now this is the in California where there's the clean water act bad to the environmentalist in San Francisco have been and and sorry in Sacramento have been pushing so this farmer's name is Jacqueline pants and he was told that he could be in violation of the clean water act for farming on his own land that's because the law includes a clear exemption for normal farming activities but it's also because the government officials look pant consulted didn't view overturns dirt that has been tilled and plowed as pollution back in twenty sixteen he consulted with the army corps of engineer which administers the clean water act with the EPA he began at legal action they begin legal action against the Pat for plowing it but he did back in two thousand eleven on his weeks it used plowing weed on a ranch property he owned in northern California in March twenty twelve le pen had sold the property which was into Hama county near red bluff if you know where that is it's up north before plowing his field to plant wheat Lecanto talked in person with the farm service agency in California which is part of the US department of agriculture he said all of the government officials that he spoke with and they have all been deposed they have never once he said suggested I go meet with the army corps of engineers he asked him if it was okay to take this piece of land and grow wheat and they all said it was okay even today you said you can go into these offices and they will not tell a farmer that he needs to go into the army corps to farm on his own land he said it makes no sense of the department of agriculture doesn't understand any of it he said they're talking about the same with the federal government he also recalls visiting for different government folks with expertise in soil conservation which she was researching the history of the farm they all gave him the same answer they said if you want to plant we'd go ahead same weights implanted in the past but after he sold the property to a company called worry nursery which is a family owned nursery operation in that area they encounter the same problems with the army corps of engineers saying that dirt is a contaminant and that you can't actually tell your land if you are a property owner is here so he is so what is what is going on I mean this is like my mind is we've got a lot of kids the same story I told you on Monday about the farmer up in Vermont seventy six years old and milking cows and he was eight years old on his own farm third generation farmer turned fifty house some twenty six year old kid from the state environmental protection agency came to his farm last

"It's Christmas Christmas. It'd be great to do. It would be great on Christmas to give to CSI Christian, solidarity international. They're hoping people around the world who are not only unable to celebrate Christmas. But they're being horribly persecuted for their simple faith in in. What we call the Christmas story. So we want acknowledge that. And we want to say to you, folks. If you've got our website Metaxas. Talk dot com, you'll see the banner and you can give it's a wonderful thing to do. You can do it in the name of a relative or a friend. It's a beautiful beautiful thing to do. I just wanna wanna mention that. We're talking to William Federer who has written yet. Another fantastic book. This one is called there really is a Santa Claus. No seriously. No, no, no. I'm not kidding by William Federer Bill. Welcome to the program. Now, we've got a lot of questions short as you claim. There's a Santa Claus. Have you ever seen him with your own eyes? No, okay. All right. What about what about Bigfoot you ever seen big foot monster? All right. Then that's I just want to just I want to be clear have not seen Santa Claus. And yet you claim and yet that there's a real Santa Claus. So we're going to need you to back that up Bill. Well, I if I go through the story, I think some of the answers will come out, but after nNcholas gives away all his money. He's going to join a monastery of Zion in the holy land. But before he makes his vows to the Lord. Some out tells them not to hide his light under a bushel. So it goes back to Asia Minor and gets off at a city called my rough now before he leaves he stops off at the church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. This is a lot of crazy. Interesting stuff were joking around. But this is amazing. So Saint Nicholas back then before he was a Saint he decides that he wants to go to the monastery where it's called the monetary of Siahaan, and it's in the holy land. And he's about to join and he decides not to and on his way back. He stops off at the church and the Nativity and Mark Twain when he visited the holy land in the eighteen hundreds ski wrote a book called innocence abroad published eighteen sixty nine he goes to the church of the Nativity in Mark Twain writes this this spot where the first merry Christmas was uttered in all the world. And from whence, the friend of my childhood Santa Claus departed on his journey to gladden and continues to gladden the roaring firesides on wintry mornings in many distant land, forever and forever. So even Mark Twain acknowledges, yes. Nncholas stopped off at the church other Nativity before he went back, and he gets back to Asia. Minor today that's Turkey and the city he stops. At is my rub and unbeknownst to him the Bishop had died, and the church leaders could not decide who the next Bishop was gonna be where's Myra again, the south west coast to Turkey. Okay. But it's still called Asia. Minor. So nNcholas one of the church leaders has a dream. That's the first person to church the next day would be named nNcholas. He was to be their next Bishop. And sure enough he goes in they bring him into the back room, and they announced to him that he's supposed to be the Bishop. Well, he was not too excited because the Roman emperor Diocletian was arresting bishops and killing them. So it was sort of like you beat the Bishop assist. You. I don't know. You'll be division. So he finally agrees is arrested. He's put in prison awaiting death. And suddenly, the emperor Diocletian is struck with an intestinal disease. So terrible that he abdicates thrown or. Boss. Our God is an awesome God. Yeah. That is really up. And we know this is this is true. I mean, this is not just some crazy legend Diocletian did was struck with an intestinal disease. He was he was a very wicked wicked. Emperor. What year are we talking about right now? Bill may I three zero five AD is when he abdicates may literally was trying to exterminate Christianity. He had lost some battles with Persia. He asked his generals why they told them he had neglected the Roman gods. So he forces all the military to worship the Roman gods, which ironically forces all the Christians out because there had been a revival of Christian Christians in the military, and then Diocletian decides to use the military to force the entire Roman empire to return to worshipping the Roman gods. And so he goes province. Systematically, province-by-province killing the church leaders, tearing down churches burning up, you know, the scriptures. And so when he abdicates the next emperor is hilarious. Keep continues the persecution. He struck with an intestinal disease. And dies must have been something in the water. And with no emperor. It's a toss up at four generals decide to fight it out. One of them is constant time. He's in New York Britain, his men, get the news, surround him and yell hail Caesar. So Constantine with his army marches toward Rome to fight MEC sensuous at the battle of the mill vian bridge. The year is three twelve eighty the night before the battle Constantine reportedly sees the sign of Christ in the sky, and he puts it on all of his shields and cymbals he wins which the sign of Christ. It was the first two letters of the Greek name for Christ. And so the the first time for Christ begins with an x Ray by the second letter. It makes. Makes the are sound is called the row, and it's written as a big P. And so this big exit appea- Constantine puts on all of his shields and cymbals over the centuries that got shortened just to the exit. It was called the Chi or the Christ's cross or criss cross. And that's where we get the X hyphen M. Yes. Said of Xmas being oh, they crossed out Christ. No, that's the Greek letter that said for Christ. So ex MRs okay by you. Right. And it became part of the written. Oh, so you would sign at the Christ cross today that sign at the X or cross my heart swear to tell the truth. It was the crisscrossing, and then they would get to show sincerity, and that's come down to us as the Xs and the os on the bottom of a Valentine beat. X is you're swearing before. Christ. You're gonna keep your pledge to this person. And then the, oh, they would kissed the bible or kissed the cross to show sincerity. I did not know that. Emperor Constantine when he was still the general on his way to Rome that when he saw the sign in the sky. I always told that he saw the cross in the sky, and then he heard voice in this name in this sign conquer, and but you're saying that he saw the KAI ro correct? Yes, it was a big x and a big P. And then he heard the sound of in hawk signal. Vince is in this sign you'll be invincible so often you'll see this third century Christian symbols of x with a P and underneath I h s v in hawks signal. Vince is in this sign you'll be invincible. And but anyway, it's incredible. He issues the edict of Milan. Three thirteen eighty and this is the first time in history that Christians are not persecuted by the government. For three centuries. Christianity have been persecuted by the government. But now the eating and so Nichols has let out of jail and he preaches publicly against paganism. What's what is it? The temple of Diana it emphasis, the apostle Paul preached against Anna, worship at episodes. And after nineteen two hundred fifty years, later and emphasis is still worshipping Artemis or Diana. And so that the temple to Diana or Artemis is twice as big as the Parthenon in Athens while I will never knew that that is holy cow. Wow. Integrity to have something that big. That's amazing. Do the do the do the foundations or the ruins of that still exist? The foundation does. But the story is that this temple. It was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world it had a hundred and twenty seven huge pillars and temple prostitutes. It was the Las Vegas of the Mediterranean. People would go on pilgrimage to Diana. Yeah. We know what you're gonna do and so Nicolas preaches against this and the people get stirred up, they tear the temple down. And anyway, so the ruins of it are still there. But they took away the stones until now all you have is the foundation. The idea there is that big anybody's visited the Parthenon. I mean to imagine something twice the size of that dedicated to Artemis. That's that's pretty extraordinary. And during this time, they get rid of the Olympics. The Olympics for those that have never been to. I went there in college. But they did them make it. Obviously. No, no in antiquity that first of all, obviously, it's only men competing, and there was something about the purity of of the the body, and yeah, they they would they would compete without so much as a single back then they pronounced it naked. Yes. That's right. There you go. And so so they end the Olympics and then nNcholas preaches against exposure of unwanted infants. This was their version of abortion, the Roman practice was the mother would bear the child and late at the father's feet. If he picked it up and liked it and thought it looked healthier. They could afford it. They would keep it. But if you did not pick it up, the mom had put the baby in a basket and set it outside and exposed to the elements, and it would die. And so a lot of the early early. Christians would hear these babies crying and collect them and raise them as orphans. And that's where we get to the stories of, you know, an elderly couple gets a knock on the door, and they open it, and there's a baby in a basket. Well, that was a mother trying to do something other than expose it. But so when nNcholas preaches against this. He would have been a pro-life preacher today. That's extraordinary. I mean, I didn't I didn't realize that. I think we're at a time in this segment. Hang on one second folks when we come back. We're just going to be talking more about Christmas. Stick around.

But it's still called Asia Minor, Brian, so nNcholas and one of the church leaders has a dream. That's the first person to church the next day would be named nNcholas. He was to be their next Bishop. And sure enough he goes in. They bring him into the back room, and they announced to him that he's supposed to be the Bishop. Well, he was not too excited because the Roman emperor Diocletian was arresting bishops and killing them. So it was sorta like you'll be the Bishop assist. You. I don't you'll be vision. So he finally agrees is arrested. He's put in prison awaiting death. And suddenly, the emperor Diocletian is struck with an intestinal disease. So terrible that he abdicates the throne. Or loss. Our God is an awesome God. Yeah. That is really up. And we know this is this is true. I mean, this is not just some crazy legend Diocletian did was struck with an intestinal disease. He was he was a very wicked wicked. Emperor. What year we talking about right now? Bill may I three zero five AD is when he abdicates literally was trying to exterminate Christianity. He had lost some battles with Persia. He asked his generals why they told them he had neglected the Roman gods. So he forces all the military to worship the Roman gods, which ironically forces all the Christians out because there had been a revival of Christian Christians in the military, and then Diocletian decides to use the military to force the entire Roman empire to return to worshipping the Roman gods. And so he goes province. Systematically, province-by-province killing the church leaders, tearing down churches burning up, you know, the scriptures. And so when he abdicates the next emperor is Galerias keep continues the persecution. He's struck with an intestinal disease. And dies must have been something in the water. And with no emperor. It's a toss up at four generals decide to fight it out. One of them is Constantine. He's in York Britain, his men, get the news, surround him and yell hail Caesar. So Constantine with his army marches toward Rome to fight mex- sensuous at the battle of the million bridge. The year is three twelve AD the night before the battle Constantine reportedly sees the sign of Christ in the sky, and he puts it on all of his shields and cymbals he wins. What's the sign of Christ? It was the first two letters of the Greek name for Christ. And so the the first time for Christ begins with an x Ray, all the KAI. The second letter it makes. Makes the our sound is called the row, and it's written as a big P. And so this big exit appea- Constantine puts on all of his shields and cymbals over the centuries. It got shortened just to the exit. It was called the Chi or the Christ's cross or crisscross. And that's where we get the X hyphen M E. Yes. Instead of miss being oh, they cross Christ. No, that's the Greek letter that for Christ. So ex MRs okay by you. Right. And it became part of a written. Oh, so you would sign at the Christ cross today that sign at the X or cross my heart where tell the truth. It was the Christ cross, and then they would kiss additional sincerity, and that's come down to us as the Xs and the os on the bottom of a Valentine beat. X is you're swearing before. Christ. You're gonna keep your pledge to this person. And then the, oh, they would kiss the bible or kiss the cross to show sincerity. I did not know that. Emperor Constantine when he was still the general on his way to Rome that when he saw the sign in the sky. I was always told that he saw the cross in the sky. And then he heard a voice saying in this name in this sign conquer, and but you're saying that he saw the KAI ro correct? Yes. So it's a big x and a big P. And then he heard the sound of in hawks signal Vince is in this sign you'll be invincible so often you'll see this third century Christian symbols of x with a P and underneath I h s v in hawks signal. Vince is in this sign you'll be invincible. And but anyway. He issues the edict of Milan. Three thirteen AD. And this is the first time in history that Christians are not persecuted by the government. For three centuries. Christianity have been persecuted by the government. But now the edict. And so Nichols has let out of jail and he preaches publicly against paganism. What's what is it? The temple of Diana it emphasis, the apostle Paul preached against fan of worship at emphasis in chapter nineteen two hundred fifty years, later and emphasis is still. Worshipping Artemis, Diana. And so that the temple to Diana or Artemis is twice as big as the Parthenon in Athens, while acade- I never knew that that is holy cow. Wow. Integrity to have something that big. That's amazing. Do the foundations or the ruins of that still exist. The foundation does. But the story is that this temple. It was one of the seven wonders of the ancient world it had a hundred and twenty seven huge pillars and temple prostitutes. It was the Las Vegas of the Mediterranean. People would go on pilgrimage to Diana. Yeah. We know what you're going to do and so Nicolas preaches against this and the people get stirred up, they tear the temple down. And anyway, so the ruins of it are still there. But they took away the stones until now all you have is the foundation. I mean, the big and anybody's visited the Parthenon. I mean to imagine something twice the size of that dedicated to Artemis. That's that's pretty extraordinary. And during this time, they get rid of the Olympics. The Olympics for those that have never been to Greece. I went there in college. But they did them make it. Obviously. No, no in antiquity that first of all, obviously, it's only men competing, and there was something about the purity of of the the body, and yeah, they they would they would compete without much. As a single back, then they pronounced it naked. Yes. That's right. There you go. And so so they end the Olympics and then nNcholas preaches against exposure of unwanted infants. This was their version of abortion, the Roman practice was the mother would bear the child and late at the father's feet. If he picked it up and liked it and thought it looked healthier. They could afford it. They would keep it. But if you did not pick it up, the mom to put the baby in a basket and set it outside and exposed to the elements, and it would die. And so a lot of the early. Christians would hear these babies crying and collect them and raise them as orphans. And that's where we get the the stories of, you know, an elderly couple gets a knock on the door, and they open it, and there's a baby in a basket. Well, that was a mother trying to do something other than expose it. But so when nNcholas preaches against this. He would have been a pro-life preacher today. That's extraordinary. I mean, I didn't I didn't realize that. I think we're at a time in this segment. Hang on one second folks when we come back. We're just going to be talking more about Christmas. Stick around. Telling you what Wall Street's doesn't want. You to know is the Phil's gang show was Phil Grandy let the economy's doing. So. Well, then why.

They're hoping people around the world who are not only unable to celebrate Christmas. But they're being horribly persecuted for their simple faith in what we call the Christmas story. So we want acknowledge that. And we want to say to you, folks. If you got our website Metaxas talk dot com, you'll see the banner, and you can give it's a wonderful thing to do. You can do it in the name of a relative or a friend. It's a beautiful beautiful thing to do. I just wanna wanna mention that. We're talking to William Federer who has written yet. Another fantastic book. This one is called there really is a Santa Claus. No seriously. No, no, no. I'm not kidding by William Federer Bill. Welcome the program.

And what about what about Bigfoot you ever seen big foot? At the Loch Ness monster. All right. Then that's I just wanna just wanna be clear that's not seen Santa Claus. And yet you claim yet that there's a real Santa Claus. So we're going to need you to back that up Bill. Well, I if I go through the story, I think some of the answers will come out, but after nNcholas gives away all his money. He's going to join a monastery on in the holy land. But before he makes his vows. The Lord somehow tells them not to hide his light under a bushel. So he goes back to Asia Minor and gets off at a city called Myer up now before he leaves he stops off at the church of the Nativity in Bethlehem way. This is this is a lot of crazy. Interesting stuff were joking around. But this is amazing. So Saint Nicholas back then before he was a Saint he decides that he wants to go to the monastery where it's called the monetary of Siahaan, and it's in the holy land. And he's. And he's about to join and he decides not to and on his way back. He stops off at the church in the Nativity. And Mark Twain when he visited the holy land in the eighteen hundreds. He wrote a book called innocence abroad. Yeah. Published eighteen sixty nine he goes to the church of the Nativity. And Mark Twain writes this this spot where the first merry Christmas was uttered in all the world. And from whence, the friend of my childhood Santa Claus departed on his journey to gladden and continued to gladden the roaring firesides on wintry mornings in many distant land, forever and forever. So even Mark Twain acknowledges, yes, nNcholas stopped off at the church other Nativity before he went back, and he gets back to Asia. Minor today that's Turkey in the city. He stops. At is my rub and unbeknownst to him the Bishop had died, and the church leaders could not decide who the next Bishop was going to be now. Where's Myra again? The south west coast Turkey. Okay. But it's still called Asia. Minor nNcholas one of the church leaders has a dream that the first person to church the next day would be named nNcholas. He was to be their next Bishop. And sure. Sure enough he goes in they bring him into the back room. And they announced the him that he's supposed to be the Bishop what he was not too excited because the Roman emperor Diocletian was arresting bishops in killing them. So it was sort of like you beat the Bishop assist. You. I don't know you envision. So he finally agrees is arrested. He's put in prison awaiting death. And suddenly, the emperor Diocletian is struck with an intestinal disease. So terrible that he abdicates the throne. Boss. Our God is an awesome God. Yeah. That is really. And we know this is this is true. I mean, this is not just some crazy legend Diocletian did was struck with an intestinal disease. He was he was a very wicked wicked. Emperor. What year we talking about right now? Bill may I three zero five eight years when you have kids. May literally was trying to exterminate Christianity. He had lost some battles with Persia. He asked his generals why they told them he had neglected the Roman gods. So he forces all the military to worship the Roman gods, which ironically forces all the Christians out because there had been a revival of Christian Christians in the military, and then Diocletian decides to use the military to force the entire Roman empire to return to worshipping the Roman gods. And so he goes province. Systematically, province-by-province killing the church leaders, Karen down churches burning up, you know, the scriptures. And so when he advocates the next emperor is Galerias keep continues the persecution. He struck with an intestinal disease. And dis must have been something in the water and with no emperor. It's a toss up four generals decide to fight it out. One of them is Constantine. He's in your Britain, his men get the news surrounding and yell hail Caesar so Constantine with his army marches toward Rome. To fight mex- sensuous at the battle of the VM bridge. The year is three twelve AD the night before the battle Constantine reportedly sees the sign of Christ in the sky, and he puts it on all of his shields and cymbals he wins. What's the sign of Christ? It was the first two letters of the Greek name for Christ. And so the the first time for Christ begins with an accident. The second letter. It makes makes the our sound is called the row, and it's written as a big P. And so this big exit appea- Constantine puts on all of his shields and cymbals over the centuries. It got shortened just to the exit was called the Chi or the Christ's cross or cross. And that's why we get the X hyphen M A S X miss being oh they crossed out Christ. No, that's the Greek letter that said for Christ. So ex MRs okay by you. Right. And it became part of a written oath. So you would sign at the Christ cross today the sign at the X or cross my heart's where it tell the truth.

"Colonnade that served as bookstores. These bookstores were open to those who quote devoted their life to the cause of learning. Some other rooms were set up for the worship of the old gods, and quote since it would have been deemed heresy to worship the old gods after three ninety one C F Tonia seem to be describing the conditions of the Serra PM in the library sister branch from some time before its destruction. He is noted to visited the Seropyan before it's alleged downfall. While it's clear. The sister branch and the Sarah PM was most likely raised by Christian Pershing. What of the Royal library L? There's no mention of it in the destruction of the Alexandrian temples. Was it spared did any of the scrolls survived the felicia's rat or was another culprit responsible for the demolition of the physical structure or the intellectual ideal of the Royal library. One possibility is a combination of our first two theories it. Does seem odd that there would be no account of the Philis destroying the Royal library, given the extreme detail provided on his destruction of the annex. This may be because the library was actually destroyed by Caesar as we earlier theorized the antics remained only to be destroyed along with the temple to Serie pissed by Christian purge. What we do know is that the libraries last recorded head librarian was theon who died in four zero five C E, according to some scholars the fate of the library rested in the hands of theon daughter hypoxia upon his death can foru- writes, quote, this Sarah PM had been destroyed in the attack on the pagan temples in three ninety one the last famous figures societas with the museum had been theon father is celebrated hypoxia whom the Christians convinced. She was a heretic barbarously murdered in four fifteen c end quote. Canfora explains that by the time of hypocrisy is death, quote, the city's books had changed and not only in their content. The delicate scrolls of old had gone there. Last remnants had been cast out as refuse or buried in the sand, and they had been replaced by more substantial parchment crawling with errors for Greek was increasingly a forgotten language, and quote, this claim could also mean the legendary collection of the library may have already left. Alexandria spread threat academic circles or preserved in the hands of expelled or former scholars of the most say on hypocrisy is death. Delta devastating blow to the intellectual ideal of Alexandria. The libraries last remnants are said to have been destroyed soon after her murder, it's almost as if the vast work of some of the greatest binds of the Hellenistic period and beyond vanished overnight to a population. Who no longer remembered them nor wanted to even if the Royal library at Alexandria still existed at this time, it seems that it was a shell of its former self it was not Ptolemies great collection, his grandiose intellectual center of the known world. But if this were the case, many of the libraries inch texts could have survived, and if they did where are they now with no irrefutable proof that the physical Royal library at Alexandria was destroyed from three ninety one to four fifteen CE we need to look to our last two main theories in order to decipher whether or not there may be any undiscovered surviving works is it possible. The ancient world's greatest intellectual texts met their end heating, the bathwater of seventh century Muslims. Or could these lost works have escaped? The fires snuggled safely in the hands of expelled scholars desperate to preserve Alexander's, original pursuit of knowledge and Ptolemies patronage of scholarship will look into these possibilities after the break. Now back to the story. The Royal library at Alexandria, certainly saw its share of turmoil. As a seaport city, linking, Greece and greater Egypt. Alexandria was a strategically valuable city. The city was susceptible to sieges religious infighting and a likely decline in the pursuit of knowledge that was established by their predecessors. It seems that Caesar's forty eight BC fire was not entirely to blame. There's also no concrete proof the library was destroyed during the Christian purge of the Alexandrian temples, including the library sister branch. This leads us to our third theory which begins with a thirteenth century story about a seventh century conquest. The story comes from thirteenth century Christian scholar, Gregory bar. Hey, Brian is according to Hebrews during the six forty CE Muslim conquest of Egypt, the conquering Arabs led by general. Amir iban. Laws heard tales of a magnificent library, which contain the knowledge of the entire world. The Arabs were anxious to see the impressive collection. The Calif Omar king of the Muslim empire believed. The libraries taxed would either contradict the Koran making them heresy or the techs would agree with the Koran making them superfluous and unnecessary upon Omar's orders a laws had the manuscripts gathered together and use them as fuel for four thousand various bath houses throughout the city. There was so much paper that the fires from them were enough to heat the bath houses for six months. Hey, Brian account appeared more than five centuries after the Arab conquest of six forty CE in those five centuries. There was no mention nor any reference to any incident involving the library at Alexandria. Unfortunately, this theory doesn't seem to hold water. Which begs the question of where this theory comes from? And what reason people would have to spread it as possible fact, Egyptian Arab scholar Iban, Al Kathy along with other thirteenth century Arab. Authors made Brian is unfounded story popular. What happened in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries? That aroused interest in the fate of the library. And why was L Oz believed to be the culprit instead of any of the previous culprits after more than five centuries of silence since the alleged destruction of the library sister branch. Why was kicked so anxious to record and spread the story during the eleventh and twelfth centuries see Europe in Byzantium saw a revival of classical learning especially in Greek philosophy the scholastic movement and academic method of critical thought led to the founding of universities in France, Germany, Italy and England this newfound adoration for learning was best illustrate. Rated by the evolution of the book in the twelfth century before then monasteries produced books of gold leaf and find parchment. These books were too expensive for the scholars desperately seeking out knowledge to satisfy the demand for more cost effective products. Starch Anare or publishers began mass producing books employing hosts of copyrights. With the revival of scholarship dominating the landscape. It's natural. That interest was aroused in the libraries fate. But why was I'll is the culprit in question, perhaps it stemmed from a few incidents during the crusades a series of religious wars throughout the eleventh and thirteenth centuries. See in ten seventy c e almost an Sierra the fought amid Calif and a series of the Slavic rulers in North Africa sold thousands of books from the fought amid library in Cairo in order to raise money to pay his soldiers another incident took place after a six year siege of Tripoli in eleven oh to see the city offered to surrender to the crusaders so long as their lives and property remain, unharmed. The crusaders agreed, but they pillaged any way they captured valuable books from the schools in the city, even private book collections were unsafe from these incidents upon sailing from Egypt to Syria. The private collection of Muslim poet who summa even when keyed was confiscated and destroyed by the king of Jerusalem. These incidents concerning the massive loss of knowledge led to a stereotype against Muslim forces. Even though the crusaders were just as involved in the destruction of sacred tags as the Muslims were during this time period. Regardless the impression of Muslim soldiers confiscating or destroying texts may have been what led to hey, Brian is blaming I'll Oz in his story. It certainly seems like, hey, Brian had ulterior motives in writing his story, but why would kief de corroborated kief dis readiness to record the story in detail may have been related to his association with salad. Dean the Sultan of Egypt in the mid twelfth century. C E sell dean, assuming Muslim who overthrew the previous Shiite regime became the first Sultan of Egypt in eleven seventy four c since he needed money to fund his campaigns against crusaders. You offer treasures he confiscated in his rise to power, according to Jim. Option historian, alma crazy. One salad dean game control of Egypt. He announced an auction of the famous thoughts amid library, quote, the sale lasted several years, and quote, author Abhu Chamaa writes that sell a deans assistant mentioned the library contained quote, one hundred twenty thousand leather bound volumes of those immortal. Ancient books of these eight camel loads were transported to Syria, and quote, Schimmel rights of the fate of another library in Amita a Syrian city which reportedly held more than a million bucks in eleven eighty three c e solid dean donated the library for services rendered by his chief supporters one supporters selected seventy camel loads of books. A prevailing sadness comes from these reports as well as from other contemporary accounts, which indicates a widespread resentment at the loss of knowledge this sadness, exposed salad dean to criticism from survivors of the old Shiite regime, whom he sought to repress it was crucial that the supplicants of salad. Deans rule justified his actions. This seems the likeliest reason kief D first popularized. He Brian his tail the revival of classical learning likely led to the stories fame. But the accusation of Allah's certainly stems from a not clear motive of hey, Brian is in subsequently KiKi critics have denounced the story, including eighteenth century British historian Edward gibbon since there's no concrete record of the Royal library since potty has death. It has been deemed a twelfth century fabrication. Our fourth and final theory claims that instead of being destroyed in a single incident the library its downfall gradually, even though it seems Caesar's incidental. Fire may not have destroyed the library the mythological burning of the library at Alexandria has persisted. And it's a blame has been credited to the Roman general by various authors over the years. However, as we've seen this wasn't the last record of the library, nor was it. The last time it was supposedly set ablaze. As a hotbed of violent military campaigns. Alexandria was subsequently vulnerable to constant destruction from various culprits over two hundred years after Caesar's conquest from two seventy two to seventy one c Alexandria was victim to a disastrous conflict between Syrian queens in Obea and the Roman emperor. A really in in Brian Houghton's two thousand six book hidden history lost civilizations. Secret knowledge in ancient mysteries. He writes that a really in was eventually victorious in recapturing Alexandria. But not before quote, many parts of Alexandria had been devastated. The Greek district which contained the library was apparently made into a desert and quote twenty six years later in two ninety seven AD Alexandria fell prey to another assault. This time at the hands of Roman. Emperor Diocletian this frequent devastation inflicted the seaport city for several centuries. Equally dangerous to the library was that people's views began to change with this change came a supposed neglectful nature regarding the library's contents. The possible neglect of the library is important to dissect it could also hearken back to strawberries reasons for not deeming it necessary to mention the library in twenty BC e perhaps in strawberries time, the library was no longer the center of scholarship that it once was historian Heather Phillips theorizes, the libraries demise was a result of budget cuts. Not fire. This theory was based on the claim that at some point in the second century.

One Senator complained of mob rule as the hearings began and other controversial news, Nike announced that former NFL quarterback calling Kabir, Nick will be featured in its new advertising campaign. The company stock fell more than three percent on the news and some burned their Nike apparel in protest. Others applauded the company for its decision. Some are calling Kabir, Nick quote, the face of the new civil rights movement. In quote, as our society becomes more divided in divisive Christians are tempted to withdraw from. The acrimonious culture wars. The more secular culture becomes the more absent. God seems, but this is a self filling prophecy like a horoscope that predicts that bad day. It's reader then expects and thus experiences. The less we look for God, the less we see him and the less we see him, the less we look for him. This cycle extends to our prayers as well. The book of lamentations describes its authors grief over the fall of Jerusalem, destruction of the temple and five eighty six. By chapter three, the authors mourning for his nation has affected his intercession. He complains in verses eight and nine that God shuts out my prayer. He has blocked my ways with blocks of stones. He has made my past crooked. He says to the Lord, and I forty four. You have wrapped yourself with the cloud so that no prayer can pass through when we measure our prayers by their circumstance results. It's sometimes easy to feel the same way. Your loved one is still sick. Your way word child has. Not yet repented. Your future seems clouded and bleak. But the author of lamentations persists in praying until he can say in verse fifty eight, you have taken up my 'cause Lord, you ever deemed my life now he knows versus sixty four and sixty six, that God will repay his nation's enemies and destroy them from under your heavens all this because he prayed by faith rather than by sight. Satan seems to have two primary strategies and attacking the church. One is a frontal assault that persecutes Christians and their leaders, the kind of attack that cost millions of Christians, their lives in the early centuries of Christian history. But this approach often backfires as totally noted. The blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church. The very impart that persecuted Christians eventually legalized and adopted their religion. I've seen the same in Cuba where pastors tell me that the persecution they face is purifying and strengthening their members. They believe their churches are far strong. Now than when the Castro regime, I took power the enemies. Second strategy is more subtle rather than opposing secular culture. In Christian churches. He seeks to align them. He invites us to give the people what they want at the expense of biblical teaching the confront sent and encourages repentance knowing that shallow convenient faith will falter when challenged in Jesus, Matthew thirteen parable seeds with no depth of soil or scorched by the sun and withered away. Similarly, Satan wants us to judge faith by our circumstances since life on this fallen planet will the Neville disappoint us. We will then turned from God and anger and frustration. Then the cycle begins the less trust, our Lord, the less we pray and the less we pray, the less we trust. There's a better response to chaotic times Antony of Egypt who lived from two fifty one, two, three, fifty. Six was one of the earliest desert fathers, a group of. Men and women who began the monastic tradition Athas of Alexandria who live from two ninety six to three seventy three was a renowned Christian theologian who knew Antony personally gave us as compelling story. Antony gave away a sizable inheritance to serve God in a life of prayer and asceticism. When the time came for him to die, he's spoke to fellow amongst quote with great joy as if he relieving foreign lands and was about to set out for his own country. In quote, then he encouraged them to live quote as if they were going to die. Each day in quote, Anthony's point was not that we should refuse all cultural engagement to the contrary. He ministered to Christians being persecuted by Roman emperor, Diocletian and warned against the area and heresy confronting the church. His point was that this world is not our home when we travel abroad, we may spend years in foreign lands with residents whose needs we serve. In fact, Jeremiah twenty nine seven says we should seek the welfare. Of those with whom we live. Matthew five calls us to be the light of the world and our culture. But all that happens to us in a foreign land is transitory. It matters but not eternally. What matters most on earth is that which matters in heaven. You can live for one or the other, but not both.
