Origin of Christmas - The Biblical Account
The origin of Christmas is presented beautifully in the well-known biblical account of Luke: "And it came to pass in those days, that there went out a decree from
Caesar Augustus, that all the world should be taxed. (And this taxing
was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria.) And all went to be
taxed, every one into his own city. And Joseph also went up from
Galilee, out of the city of Nazareth, into Judaea, unto the city of
David, which is called Bethlehem; (because he was of the house and
lineage of David:) To be taxed with Mary his espoused wife, being great
with child. And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were
accomplished that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her
firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a
manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were
in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over
their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them,
and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore
afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring
you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto
you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ
the Lord" (Luke 2:1-11).
Origin of Christmas - What Really Matters?
The true origin of Christmas is filled with controversy and compromise. A quick study will reveal a number of disturbing roots that we haven't
been able to cover in this brief article. In short, the Christmas
holiday we celebrate today is indicative of Christianity's willingness
to absorb the world's customs and traditions, and forget its simple
roots in the historical reality of Jesus Christ. Christmas should be
nothing more than a simple, yet wonderful reminder of Christ's humble
beginning as a human child in this world. His birth merely set the
stage for the power, glory, and salvation
that would be revealed in His life, death, and resurrection! Whether
it's December 25th, sometime in late September, or any other day of the
year, we should use each and every opportunity to reflect on Jesus
Christ and His message of hope for all of us.
