Series Aims
  • To understand that Jesus perfectly reveals God the Father because he is both fully God and fully man.
  • To understand that God's plan to rescue his people is only possible because Jesus became a man.
  • To understand that we should have the same attitude as Jesus who humbled himself by becoming a man to die for us.
  • To know that because Jesus became a man we can be confident that he understands our struggles.

Series Overview
This series seeks to go beyond the usual Christmas story by teaching what the incarnation (God the Son becoming a man) means for us. It focuses primarily on two key aspects of the nature of Jesus' birth:
  1. Our great need – it was necessary for God the Son to become a man so that he could die to rescue his people from sin (weeks 2 and 3). Jesus' humanity makes it possible for people to know exactly what God is like and how he wants them to live (weeks 1, 3 and 4).
  2. God's generous blessing – because God the Son became a man those who receive him become friends with God the Father (weeks 1 and 2). Jesus' humanity brings countless other blessings (both now and in the future) for those who trust in him (weeks 2 and 4).
The incarnation is the means by which God supplies all that we need and more. He enables us to know and love him; to be brought into restored relationship with him and each other; to come to him confidently in prayer; and to live with hope for the future. The impact of Jesus' birth on our lives and the world is more far-reaching than we often imagine, but it is the reason we celebrate Christmas.
