About this Episode

What if we had never heard the Christmas story before? What if we were first-century Jews encountering the story of Jesus' birth for the very first time?

In this week's podcast, Edward Sri takes us back into the world of Jesus, Mary and Joseph and unpacks for us the prophecies, historical context and Jewish hopes that come to fulfillment in Luke's account of Christ's birth (Luke 2:1-7).
