Many of us will decorate our homes for Christmas. No doubt that a part of the decorations for many of us will include a Nativity Set—a small display of figurines memorializing those who were part of the advent of the child Jesus. As a child I was given such a Nativity Set. Mine depicted the setting as a barn. At the top of the barn was a hole where a light was to be placed to illustrate the star that led the magi to Jesus. Surrounding Jesus, as He lay in the manger, were Mary and Joseph, the barn animals, some shepherds, and the magi.
Over the next few weeks we will look to see what the Bible has to say about these Christmas Advent personalities. I am calling this series “Unpacking the Nativity.” I hope you will able to join us each week to worship our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
