The Essence of Christmas

1 Timothy 1:15  (ID: 1648)

Who do we say Jesus is? Is He just one of many good men in history? Not according to Him! Jesus Himself told His disciples that He was the Anointed One, the Messiah. Drawing from Paul’s letter to Timothy, Alistair Begg explains that Jesus is central to the Christian message and the true reason for Christmas. Jesus came to earth supernaturally and historically, fully human and fully God.


15The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost.
