First Christmas Redux

As most of you know, I’m a regular contributor over at West Virginia For the Gospel, “a coalition of like-minded individuals who wish to see reformation take hold in West Virginia and the Gospel message be proclaimed throughout.”  Over the past two weeks, I have written five articles in a series called “First Christmas.”  As the long awaited day of celebration draws closer, I wanted to give you all the articles in one place so that you could be sure to read them or pass them on (or both)!

Merry Christmas!

First Christmas: The Shepherds  –  What is the significance of the shepherds’ presence at the First Christmas?

First Christmas: The When Part 1 & Part 2  –  What is the significance of the date or timing of the First Christmas?

First Christmas: The Birth  –  Where was Jesus actually born and is it really that important?

First Christmas: The Magi & Conclusion  –  What is a magi, why were they at the First Christmas, and what is the point of all of this?
