THE CHRISTMAS LIE: It's Bigger Than You Think

L  I  B  R  A  R  Y





Acts 6:5,6  And the saying pleased the whole multitude: and they chose Stephen, a man full of faith and of the Holy Ghost, and Philip, and Prochorus, and Nicanor, and Timon, and Parmenas, and Nicolas a proselyte of Antioch: Whom they set before the apostles: and when they had prayed, they laid their hands on them.

Revelation 2:2,6  I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars: <> But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate.

Revelation 2:14,15  But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication. So hast thou also them that hold the doctrine of the Nicolaitans, which thing I hate.



"The Zuqnin Chronicle is a medieval chronicle written in Classical Syriac language, encompassing the events from Creation to c. 775 CE. It was most probably produced in the Zuqnin Monastery near Amida (the modern Turkish city of Diyarbakır) on the upper Tigris. The work is preserved in a single handwritten manuscript (Cod. Vat. 162), now in the Vatican (shelf mark Vatican Syriac 162). The fourth part of the chronicle provides a detailed account of life of Christian communities in the Middle East, including regions of Syria, Mesopotamia, Palestine and Egypt, during and after the Muslim conquest.[1][2][3][4][5]  It consists of four parts. The first part[6] reaches to the epoch of Constantine the Great, and is in the main an epitome of the Eusebian Chronicle. The second part reaches to Theodosius II and follows closely the Ecclesiastical History of Socrates of Constantinople; while the third, extending to Justin II, reproduces the second part of the History of John of Ephesus (of interest because this part is lost elsewhere).[7] The fourth part is not, like the others, a compilation but the original work of the author and reaches to the year 774-775, apparently the date when he was writing."


EXCERPT FROM "CHRONICLE OF ZUQNIN" (PART 3) - On The Hideous Death of the Patriarch Euphrasius


EXCERPT - (From "The fifth earthquake of Antioch")

When the people (of Antioch), where were (still) alive, having been recused from the disaster, (those) from other places and (from) the neighboring cites had gathered in the city of Antioch and were disinterring and bringing up the corpses of those buried in the catastrophe, the body of Euphrasius was found in a cauldron of pitch used by wine-skin makers, who (worked) beneath his episcopal residence. 

When the residence collapsed and fell, he happened to fall into the cauldron. The whole of his body sank down in it, and he was cooked in the pitch. His head was found (hanging, as if he had) fainted, outside the rim of the cauldron.  Thus he was recognized from his face, while his bones were found [stripped of the flesh] in the pitch.

Some heretics, his adherents, who were in Antioch, deceived the people by saying that he had been snatched away to heaven (Raptured). God however, in order to expose their fraud, preserved his face unaltered as if he was alive. And fear and trembling seized all who saw (it).

For the believers, however, it was a wonderful thing, for they remembered the impudence of his evil deeds, his cruel plans, persecution, and pillage which he had done, and tribulations which he caused people to suffer.

Not only did he do so himself, but also he urged all the bishops under his authority to do (the same), to persecute, plunder and torture the people

They took inspiration and power from him and all engaged in these evil deeds in every region and city.  Many books would not suffice to tell about all these in full: tribulation, persecution, as well as tortures, fetters and imprisonments which in all regions and cities were carried out by bishops, clerics, periodeutae, chorepiscopi and other by the orders and assiduity of Euphrasius and of his predecessor, all the days of their lives
