The First Christmas

Product SKU: B646

Christmas with its varied celebrations and traditions, is perhaps our most joyous season of the year. The story of Jesus’ birth reminds us all that God sent down His love at Christmas, in the form of a precious baby, adored by shepherds and Wise Men. But Christmas is much more than a “story” in the common sense of the word. It was first of all an event, something that took place at a point in time, with actual people living in specific places, with a history that can be known today. Christmas the celebration is familiar to most of us; but Christmas the event — the true first Christmas — is often less familiar. Best selling author and award winning historian Paul L. Maier takes us beyond the traditions to the real people, places, and events of the first Christmas, to the land of Palestine in the first century where secular history and up-to-date discoveries add a fresh dimension to the well-known accounts in Matthew’s and Luke’s gospels.
