This week Pastor Tommy takes a look at why we celebrate the birth of Christ on December 25 and why it is important to set aside special day each year to celebrate His birth – even if we don’t know the exact day.
Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod… Matthew 2:1
…[Herod] sent soldiers to kill all the boys in and around Bethlehem who were two years old and under, based on the wise men’s report of the star’s first appearance. Matthew 2:16
At that time the Roman emperor, Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire. 2 (This was the first census taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria.) Luke 2:1-2
