This section of the website features the biblical story and facts surrounding the birth of Jesus and how to keep Christ in Christmas.



The Birth of Jesus According to Luke 

But the angel said to them, Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which will come to all the people. For to you is born this day in the town of David a Savior, Who is Christ (the Messiah) the Lord! And this will be a sign for you [by which you will recognize Him]: you will find [after searching] a Baby wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.

Read the Nativity Story in the Gospel of Luke 2:1-20



The Facts Surrounding the Birth of Jesus Christ

The facts surrounding the birth of Jesus Christ are stupendous and astounding. Each part of the Word of God calls for reaction and response, and our individual answer is eternally important.

Joseph, The Man in the Background in the Nativity 

The placing of Joseph in the nativity scene is somewhat symbolic of his life. He is the man in the background. Many stories have been written about how Mary was chosen to be the mother of our Savior, but little has been said about the man who was chosen by God to raise His son.

Matthew tells us more about Joseph than anyone else. Like me, I think Matthew must have been impressed with this humble man who loved God, loved the mother of His Son and loved His Son in a way that no one else could.

Keeping Christ in Christmas 
As we exchange gifts, we must express thanks for the greatest Gift of all. Teach your children the story of baby Jesus, born in a manger, no crib for a bed and no receiving blanket. When they are old enough to understand, a nativity scene in your home can be used to teach them about Jesus' birth. Teaching them to focus on giving instead of receiving will take them farther in life than having them believe it is better to receive than give.

Christmas Is Coming: Reminders of the First Christmas

Unfortunately, few are experiencing the inner reminder that without the first Christmas, there would be no Easter. Without the coming of the Christ child, His perfect life, His substitutionary death on the cross and His resurrection, there would be no hope for eternal life. Whether or not stores, streets and homes are decorated with the intent to honor Christ, the decorations can speak for themselves, just as the Bible says that the rocks would cry out if people fail to worship God.
