Passage: Genesis 1-3
The Origin of Christmas begins in Genesis
There are many theories and speculations as to the real origin of Christmas. Most Bible-believing Christians point to the Gospel accounts in the New Testament, especially Matthew and Luke’s nativity narratives, as the origin of Christmas. But John’s “genealogy” points to a much more ancient origin. One that goes all the way back to the very beginning.
- Christmas has its origin in a place
- Christmas has its origin in a people
- Christmas has its origin in God’s Presence
- The Origin of Christmas is ultimately rooted in our need for Christmas
Genesis 3:15 is the seed of God’s relentless promise to recreate for Himself a place where His people might dwell with His presence in harmony and peace forever!
