It’s natural to celebrate the baby Jesus at this time of year and tell the story of Mary and Joseph. But the Christmas story actually extends beyond that one night in Bethlehem and changes us for eternity.
Behind the Scenes of ChristmasAt Christmastime, neighborhood churches often abound with living nativity scenes featuring Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus, along with the worshiping shepherds and magi. But who really was this Jesus? What was the significance of His birth, and why did He come when He did? What happens when we metaphorically part the curtains and step backstage to discover Christmas’s true meaning? In this series, Alistair Begg draws from four key New Testament passages to take us behind the scenes of the familiar Christmas story. The baby in the manger, he reminds us, is none other than the Lord of eternity; the birth of Mary’s son is nothing less than the arrival of the eternal Word into the world. To a generation that does not know who Christ is, why He came, or why it matters, these central elements of the Christian faith remain as timely as ever. A Christmas that overlooks them is one that misses everything.
