About the Author
John F. MacArthur pastors Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, and serves as president of the Master’s College and Seminary. A well-known Bible expositor and conference speaker, he has written more than six dozen books, including the MacArthur New Testament Commentary series and the MacArthur Study Bible. He is the Bible teacher on Grace to You, an international radio broadcast.
The Miracle of Christmas goes to the heart of what Christmas is really about: The birth of Jesus ? Immanuel, God with us, the promised Messiah ? who came to save His people from their sins.
Drawing from both Biblical and historical accounts, author John MacArthur cuts through the myths and depicts the TRUE story of Christmas – starting with the prophecies of Christ’s coming in the Old Testament, through the lives of Joseph and Mary, and all the way to the wise men. Along the way, he weaves in short explanations of how Christmas rituals such as trees, cards, and Santa Clause came about, and uses Biblical characters to warn modern readers not to miss Christmas. The final chapter, in true MacArthur form, walks exegetically through Hebrews 2:9-18 to reveal what Jesus? life – and death – truly accomplished.
Christmas is about more than the birth of a baby. It’s about God becoming human so He could fulfill His promise to redeem us. The simple fact is:
“That baby in the manger is God. That’s the heart and soul of the Christmas message.”
