T F WE go back in imagination and
1- think what the world was like
before there was a bit of the
Christian religion in it, we can bet-
ter understand the story of Jesus
and of the nineteen Christian cen-
turies. For the next six months we
shall be thinking, wjeek by week, of
the life of Jesus Christ. But first
let us think of the jivorld in which
he lived. j
Jesus’ homeland of Palestine
was run by a military govern-
ment. Roman soldiers were
everywhere, taking the best of
everything. Jews could scarce-
ly forget, even for a day, that
they were a beaten people, any
more than a Japanese or Aus-
trian can forget it these days.
Jesus grew up in the sort of
atmosphere which military occu-
pation always tends to produce: un-
certainty, fear, hatred and desire
for revenge, tense with under-
ground plots, rumors and con-
spiracies. The Romans found Pal-
estine hardest of all their pos-
sessions to rule. When Jesus was a
boy there was a terrific uprising
near his home, and the Romans
crucified 2,000 people in reprisals.
| TIT’S MUST not think there was
1 YV no religion before Jesus was
bom. There was too much of it—
that is, of the wrong sort. The
“established church” ot Jesus’ land
was the Temple at JigWsalem, with
its complicated ritu^Hlts countless
beasts roasting on the great altar,
its white-robed choirs chanting by
day and night.

The High Priest himself was
appointed by the Roman over-
lords; chosen for his skill in
rabble-soothing, he held office
on condition that he could hold
the masses in check. However,
the Jerusalem temple was a
very small part of the actual
religious life of the ordinary
Even the most religious would
see the place only a few times a
year. Jesus seldom referred to it,
and it was finally the leaders of
the established church who hound-
ed him to his death.

January 1, 1949, is an important date in the history
of the Carson County Abstract Co., as it is the Tenth
Anniversary of J. C. McCollough in the management
of the firm.
His father, the late Parker McCollough, became
county and district clerk January 1, 1939, and retired
from active work in the abstract company.
In 1940 under the management of J. C. McCollough,
general insurance, including fire, automobile, casualty
and other lines, was established to serve this commun-
ity. Then, the Equitable Life insurance department
was added a few months later.
The firm outgrew its small office in the First Nation-
al Bank and the present building was purchased and
remodeled. Cyril Pingelton and others have been as-
sociated with Carson County Abstract Co. to help its
growth and we are proud of them.
This firm is deeply appreciative of the people of Car-
son County for the patronage of the past ten years and
it has been a pleasure to serve each and every customer.

iany pleasant experiences, the happy relationship with old friends,
joy and pleasure of forming new ones. But it is history: we miust

We pledge anew our very best efforts to serve you better and

'T'HEN as now, not all the religion
J- of the people was confined to
the official priesthood and “officers
of the church.” There were other
religious groups, unofficial sects,
and not all good. There were the
Sadducees, aristocratic and
wealthy, professing a strictly this-
world religion, not believing in any
life after death and rejecting most
of the Scriptures.
The Pharisees were the un-
official religious leaders of
Israel, as the priests were the
official leaders. They were the
traveling preachers, the Bible
teachers, the D. D.’s of that
time. Closely associated with
these were the Scribes, experts
in the study of the laws of
