People wrestle with the thought of Christmas message; how would it be possible for a virgin to give birth? How would it be possible for a Magi to visit from far land? How would it be possible for shepherds to watch the orchestra of heavenly angelic choir? How would it be possible….. It all comes down to one simple fact: At Bethlehem a baby was born who was God in human flesh. This is the central truth of the Christian faith—that God became a man at Christmastime. Everything else we believe derives from that essential truth.
Three facts in 6 words pronounce the backstage at Bethlehem!
