Christmas From The Beginning of Time

We shouldn’t be satisfied with only half of a good story. And yet with Christmas, that is what most of us do. We enter the story of Jesus without much consideration of the story God has already spoken. We begin at Bethlehem, but God’s story about Jesus begins much earlier. In today’s message, Dr. John reminds and instructs us about the Old Testament being all about Jesus. Genesis to Malichi is God’s story to us about the Saviour to come. As Christmas approaches, let’s consider the whole narrative of Jesus.

His Story and Ours

The story of Jesus’ birth is the pivot of God’s larger story. The Bethlehem story is not God’s full story. To understand the fuller narrative of God, we need to consider the complete Scriptural text. In this message, Dr. John reminds us that the story from God begins in Genesis, is reflected in Israel’s history and heard through prophetic promises of the Messiah. All of these threads are woven together at Christmas. Most of all, we see that our smaller individual stories are repaired, restored, and resolved in the great story of God.
