Celebration of Christmas by the Watch Tower Organization in 1898

Zion’s Watchtower and Herald of Christ’s Presence, the precurser to the Watch Tower Magazine

There is so much to note on this cover from December 15, 1898.

Let’s begin with the undertlined article title, “Unto You is Born a Savior.”   Jehovah’s Witnesses were celebrating Christmas at the time; scroll down to read the article on pages 371 and 372.

Be sure to also note the following:

  1. Cross and crown in upper left hand corner
  2. Soldier (knight) imagery in the upper right hand corner
  3. “… and Herald of Christ’s Presence”  as the subtitle because Christ was thought to have returned in 1874
