In Layman's Terms: The Christmas Story


As much as we love Santa Claus, Rudolph, Charlie Brown’s Christmas tree and the redemption of Ebeneezer Scrooge, Christmas really is about the arrival of the Christ child, the Savior for all humankind.

The story is told primarily in the books of Matthew and Luke. So in this episode of the podcast "In Layman's Terms," communications director Todd Seifert walks through the entire story, in order, by merging those two books together. Told in seven acts — or seven mini-stories within the larger birth story — we'll learn about how God paved the way for Jesus, remind ourselves of the familiar parts of the Christmas story, and learn a little bit more about Mary, Joseph, the shepherds and magi.
