Christmas time is special to all Christianity because we celebrate God speaking to us through Jesus Christ (Hebrews 1:2-3). So join us as we look at who really came to Bethlehem's manger. Let us consider what this one called "the Word" had to say about God.
A.B. Simpson was a Canadian preacher who founded the Christian and Missionary Alliance, an Evangelical Protestant denomination. Simpson remains one of the most popular authors for all Christian denominations. Simpson's devotional The Names of Jesus was published in 1892. In the book Simpson presents the different names of Jesus which represent biblical truths found in both the Old Testament and the New Testament.
Most folks think of Jesus as the man who started Christianity. But it turns out he wasn't just a man, and he didn't just start Christianity. Most folks think of Jesus as an other-worldly religious leader, a great moral teacher, or maybe they don't think of him at all. But he had dirty feet, partied, cooked breakfast and got himself killed. Who was this guy? Why did people hate him so much? And why should I care? Whether you've never looked closely at the Christian faith or you've dismissed it as irrelevant, you owe yourself a glance at a Jesus unencumbered by stereotypes. You might be surprised at what you see.
