ABSTRACT
The article features a discussion on the Christmas faith and the Prince of Peace. The infant born in the cowshed in Bethlehem was no more a Prince of this world than the faith. He brought what was intended to bring the peace of this world. He did not mean by peace what the world means by peace. Jesus knew that Caesars' conquest of the Mediterranean basin and of northern Europe was one condition for the spread of a later Christian civilization.
