To understand the Significance of The Birth of Christ, about 700 years BC, Isaiah recorded a prophecy about the birth of Christ in Isaiah 7:14 “Therefore, The Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin will conceive and will bear a son, and she will call his name Immanuel.” This was fulfilled in Matt.1: 18-23.
It is important to note that though Jesus was born as a child with flesh and blood, His source was the Holy Spirit. Although Christ was born of Mary, He was a child of the Holy Spirit and His element was divine.
Mathew 1:18 and 20 shows us that the birth of Jesus Christ was by no means the ordinary birth of an ordinary man; it was the extraordinary incarnation of God Himself. The birth of Jesus was the birth of a God-man, a wonderful Person who was both divine and human.
In today’s bible study session, Pastor Yewande Efodili will be teaching on the Significance of The Birth of Christ and she will cover some important questions such as:
- What is Christmas?
- Why do we need to celebrate Christmas?
- Is Christmas just another religious festival?
- and many more.
