Product Description

A Child Is Born: Bethlehem of Judea! A dark night; a crowded inn; shepherds on the hillside; angels in the sky; a peasant couple from Nazareth; a manger - and a Child is born. For many centuries Israel had waited for this event. It was, after all, some four thousand years since a Saviour had been promised. Now He had come, the Child was born. It had long been predicted by the prophets that the Messiah would be born of a virgin mother in Bethlehem in the land of Judah, but Joseph the carpenter, and Mary, his betrothed wife, lived in Nazareth, some seventy miles away, and the road to Jerusalem and Bethlehem was difficult and dangerous. God used a decree of the Roman Emperor to bring them to Bethlehem. In accordance with Caesar's decree Joseph must go to be registered in the town of his forefathers, and while they were there, in Bethlehem of Judea, the Child was Born. His name was ¨Jesus¨. He was indeed the son of Mary, but he was the Son of God, and He had come to save His people from their sins. From His lowly birth, throughout a lovely life, from boyhood to manhood, and until He died at Calvary, Jesus lived sinlessly. Never a word, or deed, or even thought, was wrong. He was God manifest in flesh. His life was a story of compassion and love and grace, bringing healing and comfort to many, but He had come to suffer and to die and Calvary was always in view. But why should a sinless man die? Why should Jesus suffer as He did? He Himself gives us the answer. To a very learned Rabbi He explained, ¨For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life¨ (John 3.16). Since He alone was sinless, all other (men) are sinners, needing a Saviour. So, as His apostles say, ¨The Father sent the Son to be the Saviour of the world¨ (1 John 4.14). ¨Christ died for us¨ (Romans 5.8). Those who trust Him can say, ¨The Son of God, who loved me, and gave Himself for me¨ (Galatians 2.20). Calvary was not the end. On the evening of the day that He was crucified, the Saviour was buried. After three days His tomb was empty. He was risen from dead. He was alive! Forty days later, in full view of His disciples, He ascended from the Mount of Olives into the heavens from which He had come. We went to Bethlehem, but found the babe was gone, The manger empty and alone. ¨And whither has He fled?¨ ¨To Calvary¨, they said, ¨to suffer in our stead.¨ We went to Calvary, but found the suffer gone, The place all dark and lone. ¨Whither?¨ we asked. ¨Into the heavens,¨ they said, ¨up to the throne, for us to intercede.¨ A Child is born! A Saviour has died! He lives again! Trust Him for salvation. Jim Flanigan
