As we approach the end of an extraordinary year, we focus again on the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ.
The traditional texts at this time of year are the nativity accounts in Matthew and Luke which explore Jesus’ birth from our earthly perspective. However, the opening verses of John’s gospel focus on the nativity from the spiritual perspective. The focus is not so much on Jesus’ birth, but on our ‘re-birth’!
Danny preached a sermon last Sunday on John 1:1-14 where he unpacks this in relation to Jesus’ birth – feel free to listen below:
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. (John 1:14 NIV)
