"Away in a manger, no crib for a bed, the little Lord Jesus lay down His sweet head" Who is this babe in the manger and what did He do that causes millions to celebrate His birth each year?

While the Christmas story is simple enough for even small children to delight in, there are many questions about the Messiah that the Bible must be studied to understand. If you enjoy unraveling conundrums, listen to this lesson to hear about four puzzling questions. First, learn about the promised seed and whether or not Jesus fulfills the prophecies. Then understand why Joseph cannot be either the legal or biological father of the humanity of Jesus. Delve into the question of how God can become a man and why the Messiah is called a stumbling block. The take-away from this lesson is that the questions of life can only be resolved by faith in Jesus Christ alone for eternal salvation.
