As I write this today, there are 100 days until Christmas. It seems like the perfect day to start our second PruittWrites Bible Commentary. Only this one will not focus on one book, but rather a specific event, The Birth Of Christ.
It examines the miraculous plan of God. The fact that the First Citizen Of Eternity became a citizen of Earth. He, whose innocence was so foreign to man, became The Son Of Man. We call it simply “The Native”.
It will look at a combination of Scriptures. These include the first two chapters of Matthew and Luke, and the first chapter of John. Also the prophecies of His birth in The Old Testament, and Paul’s reference to Christ’s birth in Hebrews.
In your mind, walk with me as we catch up with some travelers on a desert road. What’s that they are looking at? In their hands is a Star Chart. Ancient and yellowed by time, it is a map of more than the stars, it’s a treasure map. It tales how a group of men held onto a promise, older than time itself, and found it fulfilled in a small baby newly born.
We’ll meet these wise men, a group of shepherds, an old man, and a couple whose sole purpose is to protect a newborn Savior. PruittWrites is very excited about this project, and we hope that you will join us for the study of “The Native”.
