Most people understand that Christmas is the celebration of the birth of Jesus.
Yet many do not understand the context of Christmas, which provides us the meaning of Jesus' birth.
The Bible says,
This grace was given us in Christ before the beginning of time, but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus…
2 Timothy 1:9-10
Christmas is God giving grace to the human race through the birth of Jesus. To fully appreciate God's gift of grace to us through the birth of Jesus, we must first go back to before time began.
