Reflections on the Meaning of Christmas

Posted on Fri, Nov 28, 2014

“The Son of God became a man…to enable men and women to become the sons and daughters of God.”
C. S. Lewis

Right here in this center, in which as a Professor of Systematic Theology I must call to you,
“Look! This is the point now!  Either knowledge or the greatest folly!  Here I am in front of you, like a teacher in Sunday School facing his kiddies,
who has something to say which a mere four-year-old can really understand.  The world was lost, but Christ was born, rejoice, O Christendom!”
Professor Karl Barth, Dogmatics in Outline

“The Word became fleshand 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

“He is the image of the invisible God… For God was pleased to have all his fullness dwell in him.”
Colossians 1:15, 19

“The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and they will call him Immanuel” which means, “God with us.”
Isaiah 7:14 and Matthew 1:23
