Christmas Theology

December 15, 2019

The hardest thing to believe about Jesus is not how He got here or what He did while He was alive on the earth. The real difficulty is truly understanding Jesus Himself and who He was as God in the flesh. The hard message for many to swallow is not the Good Friday message of atonement, or the Easter message of resurrection, but the Christmas message of incarnation. The first Christmas gift ever given was given by God Himself, and it is the greatest Christmas gift ever given because the gift was God Himself. As we move from Christmas Biology to Christmas Theology, we will learn that Christmas doesn’t just celebrate how Jesus was conceived, but Christmas also celebrates who Jesus was when He was born.

Christmas Unwrapped

In this very special Christmas series, we are going to breakdown several elements of the Christmas story in order to gain a better understanding of the miraculous and praise-worthy details of Jesus’ birth. We will take a look at the biology of Christmas, the theology of Christmas, and finally the doxology of Christmas as we unwrap the best Christmas gift of all time – our Savior, the Son of God.

Bible Reference

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.
(John bore witness about him, and cried out, “This was he of whom I said, ‘He who comes after me ranks before me, because he was before me.’ ”)
And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.
For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known.
