What We Know About Christmas

December 25th, 2021 · 4 Comments · Uncategorized

I don’t know if Jesus was born on December 25th…

I don’t know if there were three wise men or thirty…

I don’t know if the room with the animals was part of a house or a cave or something else…

There are many other things that I wish I knew with a higher level of detail but what I know is true…what is most important in the Jesus story is what we know with a high level of clarity – that God became flesh and dwelt among us! God in flesh!

I know they beheld his glory and died telling his story.

I know he was born in the humblest of circumstances…a king born into poverty!

I know people came to worship him because he was and is worthy of our highest praise.

While God didn’t choose to fill in the answer to all of my questions, He still choose to do the most marvelous and wonderful thing….an event unimaginable…omnipotent God contained in a fragile baby!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and that the focus continues to be on the coming of the enfleshed God!

    We also know that the gold, frankincense, and myrrh were valuable and used like money when the family had to flee to Egypt.
    We also know that all baby boys under 2 years old were slain in an attempt to get rid of Jesus. This will be remembered on the 28th which is Holy Innocents.

    Mary was pregnant with Jesus when she went to see Elizabeth who was pregnant with John the Baptist. The gospel according to Luke tells us Elizabeth was six months pregnant when Mary came. Zacharias surgeon in the temple according to his course. If you do all the math, John was born in the spring and Jesus will be born in September. Just got to read your Bible.
