History of the Origins of Chris tianity brought us down to the death and burial of Jesus; and we must now resume the subject at the point where we left it that is to say, on Saturday, the fourth of A pril, in the year 33. The work will be for some time yet a sort of continuation of the life of Jesus. Next to the glad months, during which the great Founder laid the bases of a new order of things for humanity, these few succeeding years were the most decisive in the history of the world. It is still Jesus, who, by the holy fire kindled in the hearts of a few friends from the spark He himself has placed there, creates institutions of the highest originality, stirs and transforms souls, and im presses on everything His divine seal. It shall be ours to show how, under this influence, always active and victorious over death, the doctrines of faith in the re surrection, in the influence of the Holy Spirit, in the gift of tongues, and in the power of the Church, be came firmly established.
