I have always loved Christmas. And it is my favorite time of year to craft. Even though I do it all year long. However, at Christmas time, I cram as much crafting time into my day as humanly possible.
The Nativity Story
The nativity story refers to the biblical narrative of the birth of Jesus Christ. According to Christian tradition, the nativity story is recounted in the Gospels of Matthew and Luke in the New Testament of the Bible. The story describes the circumstances surrounding the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.
In summary, Mary and Joseph, who were engaged to be married, traveled to Bethlehem for a census. While in Bethlehem, Mary gave birth to Jesus in a stable because there was no room at the inn. The baby Jesus was placed in a manger. Angels announced the birth to shepherds in the fields, and wise men (Magi) from the East followed a star to bring gifts to the newborn King. The nativity story is a central theme in Christmas celebrations. It is often depicted in various forms of art, including nativity scenes, carols, and other cultural expressions.
The Meaning of Christmas in the Bible
Christmas in the Bible represents the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and the Savior. The name "Christmas" is derived from the Mass of Christ, or "Christ's Mass." The holiday is observed on December 25th each year.
Christmas is a time to reflect on the significance of Jesus' birth, expressing gratitude for God's love and the gift of salvation. The holiday is also associated with themes of hope, peace, joy, and goodwill. These emphasize the Christian belief in the redemptive purpose of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection. While the Bible does not specify a particular date for Jesus' birth, December 25th was chosen by early Christians. It coincides with existing pagan winter solstice celebrations, providing a Christian context for the festivities.
