I love the Christmas stories in the Bible, but they often get overlooked for other concerns. Specifically if you attend a church that follows the Christian Calendar you get exactly 12 days to spend on them. All the time running up to Christmas is actually Advent. Being as I am a Christmas devote (I am a Nov. 1 Christmas music person), I decided to spend the 5 weeks of Bible Study I have prior to leaving for the Christmas holiday working through the stories one chapter a week. We’ll cover Matthew 1 & 2, Luke 1 & 2, and John 1. I hope you enjoy these studies.
Part 1 – Matthew 1
