Bible Text: Luke 2:1-21 | Preacher: Donnie Case | Series: Courageous Christmas | Why is the birth of Jesus so important? Why are there so many songs written about it? Why is there an entire month dedicated to the birth of this Jewish baby born over 2000 years ago? For most people, the birth of Christ is nothing more than a holiday card and some time off and a bonus from work. Everyone wants to enjoy the benefits of Christmas without understanding its true meaning.
