Christmas According to Jesus

The birth of Jesus, when God became man, was heralded by angels and prophets, proclaimed by those who witnessed and celebrated by many including us today.  While the event itself was amazing, the reason for His coming was even more meaningful.   Although Jesus revealed this purpose 30 years after His birth, we find it woven through the Christmas story.  In this series we will bring alive Christmas according to Jesus.
