The Bible tells a very adult story of Jesus' birth. Social outcasts and Gentiles were honored witnesses; a powerful king became fearful and murderous. This course explores these issues, and reexamines traditional Western assumptions about the first Christmas in the context of Middle Eastern customs and culture. An ideal study during Advent; also makes a great Christmas gift.
This leader's package includes the student manual (Item #4201) along with the leader's guide that contains the answers to discussion questions, commentary, and teaching suggestions for group study leaders.
