The (Meta)Story of Christmas: Restored to 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.
We conclude our series by asking the question, if we have been redeemed, why do things still feel…wrong? We are new creatures living in an old world. However, Jesus is going to return and make everything new. Revelation 21-22 show us a picture of how God will one day remake the world and fulfill his promise to restore his creation through the coming of His son, Jesus.
