Joseph’s Story

Play Audio

What if we told you that the birth of Jesus was “uneventful,” would you believe us?  Would it offend you to think of Christ’s birth that way?  Well, according to Matthew, the first Gospel in the New Testament, Jesus’ birth was precipitated by a dream – just a dream.  Matthew gives the reader no other proof that Jesus was God, and according to Matthew, even the shepherds’ visit was not worth noting.  What was Matthew trying to tell us in his record of the Christmas story?

 

This morning Pastor Dan will share a message about Matthew’s record and consider the idea that God wanted His Son to be just like you and me; even more, to be just like those in life who have nothing – no power, no authority, and no security.  According to Matthew, that’s the story of Christmas.
