  • Jesus' Birth
Matthew 1:17-25
RS 73-01


We’re looking at the life of Jesus. Not at his words and teachings, but at his deeds and his life—the things that happened to him and the things he did. Of course at the very beginning is his birth.

The birth of Christ has one wonderfully big word attached to it: the word “incarnation.” The birth of Jesus is the incarnation of God. Incarnate means God comes in. He comes in our flesh. He comes into our humanity, into our vulnerability, into our history, into our reality. God comes in.

We’ll look at the incarnation in this way: 1) what it is, 2) what it means, and 3) how we can connect to it.
