Holmes, who first appeared in publication in 1887, was featured in four novels and 56 short stories. The first novel, 'A Study in Scarlet', appeared in Beeton's Christmas Annual in 1887 and the second, 'The Sign of the Four', in Lippincott's Monthly Magazine in 1890. The character grew tremendously in popularity with the first series of short stories in The Strand Magazine, beginning with 'A Scandal in Bohemia' in 1891; further series of short stories and two novels published in serial form appeared between then and 1927. The stories cover a period from around 1880 up to 1914. Gradually the character touched iconic status all around the world and attained the cult of immortality among the admirers.

Jesus is a descendant of David, the beloved of God. Jesus is the only begotten Son of God who was born into this world and died and rose again. Saint John calls him the Word and the Light. When he died, he did so as atonement for our sins, and when he rose, he did so to defeat the power and curse of death and hell on this once-holy world. Do you believe in him?
