On today’s Bible Answer Man broadcast (12/21/20), Hank starts a very special series leading up to Christmas Day featuring his CHRISTMAS acronym, starting with the first two letters of the acronym: “C” and “H”. Christ—the “C” in CHRISTMAS—is a title that comes from the Greek “Christos,” which is a rendering of the Hebrew word Messiah, meaning “anointed one.” As such, the Christ of Christmas is the long-awaited Messiah who fulfills all the types and shadows of the Old Testament Scriptures. So to fully grasp the significance of the Anointed One’s Messianic role, you have to drink deeply from the wellspring of Old Testament prophecy. Moving on to history—the “H” in CHRISTMAS—Hank explains that Jesus Christ stands at the very apex of human history. Therefore, he can say with certainty that Christmas is not about reveling in mythology, it is about celebrating events that are rooted in historical fact.
