Taxing: (Luke 2:2) R.V., "enrolment", "when Cyrenius was governor of Syria," is
simply a census of the people, or an enrolment of them with a view to
their taxation. The decree for the enrolment was the occasion of
Joseph and Mary's going up to Bethlehem. It has been argued by some
that Cyrenius (q.v.) was governor of Cilicia and Syria both at the
time of our Lord's birth and some years afterwards. This decree for
the taxing referred to the whole Roman world, and not to Judea alone.
