What do renowned astronomers have to say about the appearance of a new star? Why does the extremely talented General Tiberius retire at the age of 36? What caused Caesar Augustus to add an extra day to the month bearing his name? A nice chat with a jolly Nabatean merchant takes us into the secrets of Frankincense and Myrrh, and wait - would you like to purchase a Galilean plough? A bottle of fish "Garum' off the docks of Magdala? Maybe an essence based on Pompeiian secrets?
Attached to the main pages is a decree (warrant), signed by Caesar Augustus, summoning a 'worldwide' census (Luke 2:1). The text is based on Roman decrees excavated in Egypt. We may assume that it was a decree like this one which caused Mary and Joseph to leave Nazareth and go to Bethlehem.
The Bethlehem Herald is historically based on the Scriptures and on Roman history, mainly on the writings of Josephus Flavius.
