Jesus the Divine Word
When the first-century church heard the Christmas stories, they did not have a tree in the sanctuary nor did they sing traditional Christmas carols. But they were pretty serious about what we today call "Christmas." For them those stories told how God himself entered history; how God became man and lived among us; how God brought light and life to human existence. There is so much more to the Incarnation than sentimental songs or family traditions. There is truth so profound it almost overwhelms you; it is theology of the highest degree. Join us as we celebrate Advent by exploring a theology of Christmas. On this first Sunday of Advent we consider John 1.1-3, "A Theology of Christmas: The Divine Word."
