The Christmas Story
I would like to tell you The Christmas Story. The time is right. Last week we ended with Ruth, the great, great grandmother of King David, who himself is an ancestor of Jesus. In fact, both Ruth and David are in Jesus’ genealogy in Matthew 1: 5, 6. The entire linear narrative of the Hebrew Scriptures leads to the birth of the Messiah, and it is fitting and proper that we remember Jesus’ birth tonight as we prepare to celebrate Christmas.
So, sit back and enjoy the evening as we travel back 2,000 years to the little town of Bethlehem.
