The Promise of Christmas

Luke 2:1-21

With child-like wonder and amazement, we all look forward to the sights, sounds, drama, and emotion that Christmas inevitably brings.

But what would it have been like to be in Bethlehem for the very first Christmas? Would you have expected the Savior, King, and deliverer promised in Scripture to arrive unheralded by men, born in a lowly stable, surrounded by animals and society’s outcasts?

Why did God choose to bring the Savior into the world in such a way? Why did He pick lowly shepherds to be the witnesses of this divine beginning? And what can you learn about your own salvation from the response of those who witnessed the birth of Christ?

In The Promise of Christmas, John MacArthur answers those questions and more as he takes you back in time to first-century Israel. You’ll rejoice with the angels at the wonder of God’s plan of redemption fulfilled in the humble birth of God’s Son.
