From family gatherings to the singing of carols, from the exchanging of presents to the family meals, Christmas is all about traditions. And tradition has it that the very first Christmas saw a little baby born in a Bethlehem manger 2000 years ago.
The story of Christmas is often seen as just that religious lore. This holiday season, discover what the historical evidence says about The Case for Christmas.
Award-winning author Lee Strobel takes a hard look at the evidence surrounding the birth of Jesus in The Case for Christmas a special Church Communication Network (CCN) broadcast event on Sunday, December 7.
Designed with spiritual seekers and skeptics in mind, The Case for Christmas will look at:
- Who was in the manger?
- Was he a mere human?
- Was he a pretender?
- Was he truly God incarnate?
Lee, a former atheist and one-time legal affairs editor at the Chicago Tribune, will look at the evidence that convinced him that Jesus was who He claimed to be the unique Son of God.
"In addition, Lee and ministry partner Mark Mittelberg will answer questions from the live audience at churches around North America for all time zones."
Make this a Christmas to remember by inviting a seeking friend to join you to examine The Case for Christmas.
