The Birth and Childhood of Jesus: A Bible Study
A 12-Lesson workbook for adults
The New Testament opens with the birth and childhood of Jesus. It is the beginning event of the gospel. It marks the time and the manner that God chose to bring about the redemption of mankind. The greatness of this event is reflected in the Gospel birth narratives. God’s hand is clearly at work in the unfolding events. Although the Jews anticipated the Messiah and had given much thought as to who he would be, no one fully expected all that God had planned and was about to accomplish. What man would have dreamed that God would become flesh! That deity would take on humanness! That God would love us so much that He would send His only Son that we might become sons of God! This class will focus upon the Gospel accounts of Jesus’ birth and childhood, where careful attention will be given to the message of the Gospel writers.
