The (Meta)Story of Christmas: Created for Christ
We all know the story of Christmas, but many of us do not realize that the story of Christmas spans the full breadth of the scriptures. This Advent, we are going to look at the larger story, from Genesis to Revelation, to see how the metanarrative of scripture points us to see that the coming of Christ. That the birth of Christ is not just an important moment, but the entire point of the story and the greatest hope of ours.
Most people are taught that the story of Christmas begins in a manger, but it actually begins in a garden. Today, we look at Genesis 1 to see how God has pointed to the birth of Christ since before the creation of the world. In fact, we will see that the greatest question we have, “Who am I?”, is answered in the birth of Christ.
