Of course Jesus was a man, but the events of his life, death and resurrection are the basis for Christianity. For those who believe in him, this is the turning point of all of history and our lives. Even for those who don’t believe in him, his life had a major impact on people’s lives today.
This is the most familiar version of the story of Jesus’ birth. Many read this on Christmas day. The God of the universe is born to a poor couple who can’t find a proper place to have a baby. The miraculous nature of this birth is confirmed by angels, and the special nature of the boy is confirmed by those in the temple. The humility and love demonstrated in this story are amazing! Becoming like Jesus means we should be loving and humble too.
