    The latter regarded themselves as simple scribes, and cared but for one thing—to omit nothing they knew. There is no indication at all that they were dream-world mystics who could be led easily into believing fantasies. The date of the Book of Daniel is still more certain. One Judas, of the town of Gamala, upon the eastern shore of the Lake of Tiberias, and a Pharisee named Sadoc, by denying the lawfulness of the tax, created a numerous party, which soon broke out in open revolt.

    Without speaking of the Jewish school of Egypt, in which the attempts to amalgamate Hellenism and Judaism had been in operation nearly two hundred years, a Jew, Nicholas of Damascus, had become, even at this time, one of the most distinguished men, one of the best informed, and one of the most respected of his age. It is perfectly obvious that Ernest Renan was no friend of the Christian system. Jesus cannot belong solely to those who call themselves his disciples. The study of the Law was the only one accounted liberal and worthy of a thoughtful man. One of them would place Wagram before Marengo: another would write without hesitation that Napoleon drove the government of Robespierre from the Tuileries; a third would omit expeditions of the highest importance. He read also.

    But it must be confessed that in the state in which they have come to us, these Gospels are inferior, as critical authorities, to the compilation of Matthew's Gospel which we now possess. These ideas were taught in no school; but they were in the very air, and his soul was early penetrated by them. Its author, a true creator of the philosophy of history, had for the first time dared to see in the march of the world and the succession of empires only a purpose subordinate to the destinies of the Jewish people. In this sense such popular narratives would be worth more than a formal and official history. But his idea of a secular kingdom of Israel, even if it had not been an anachronism in the state of the world in which it was conceived, would inevitably have miscarried, like the similar project which Solomon formed, owing to the difficulties proceeding from the character of the nation.

Among all the tribes of the nomadic Semites, that of the Beni-Israel was already chosen for immense destinies. Josephus rectifies them sometimes.

Parseeism, Hellenism, Judaism might have been able to have combined under every form; the doctrines of the Resurrection and of the Word might have developed themselves during ages without producing this grand, unique, and fruitful fact, called Christianity.

Jesus participated in the liking which every one had for these allegorical interpretations. He always clung close to nature. He returned, then, into his beloved Galilee, and found again his heavenly Father in the midst of the green hills and the clear fountains -- and among the crowds of women and children, who, with joyous soul and the song of angels in their hearts, awaited the salvation of Israel.

Compare the First Epistle of St. They only threw into the world millions of amulets and charms. Though the people he saw in the Holy Lands, might have resembled a great deal the people in the time of Christ, yet that resemblance was only superficial.

Legend delights to show him even in his infancy in revolt against parental authority, and deviating from the common lines to follow his vocation. The Law, which represented not the ancient laws of the country, but Utopias, the factitious laws and pious frauds of the time of the pietistic kings, had become, since the nation had ceased to govern itself, an inexhaustible theme of subtle interpretations.

To abstain from attaching one's self to any of the forms which captivate the adoration of men, is not to deprive ourselves of the enjoyment of that which is good and beautiful in them.

They allowed everything up to the point when they thought it necessary to be severe. We may suppose, however, that the principles of Hillel were not unknown to him. Worldly and incredulous Sadduceeism might possibly not recoil before such a consequence, and a consummate sage, like Antigonus of Soco, might indeed maintain that we must not practice virtue like a slave in expectation of a recompense, that we must be virtuous without hope.Offering a broad selection of Renan’s writings from several periods of his public life, most previously untranslated, it restores Renan to his place as one of France’s major liberal thinkers and gives vital critical context to his views on nationalism.
