The Word on Christmas

The prologue to John's gospel is read in almost every Christian church on Christmas Eve/Day as one of the most poetic and exalted interpretations of the meaning of Jesus come to earth.  This Advent series takes a closer and more nuanced look at that beautiful passage, pausing to consider the deeper messages about Jesus that John communicates through the four core concepts around which the rest of the prologue is built.  Hearing the four descriptors as John uses them helps us understand the true impact of the Christmas gift offered to all of us in Jesus of Nazareth.
