Chestnut Ridge Church
The birth of Christ was a turning point. All of history can be divided by events that took place before and after Christ. This series will explore the birth of Christ through the lens of the original Old Testament. Long before Christ was born, the Christmas story was presented by prophets sent by God. This holiday season, we’ll focus on those stories and learn how we can apply them to the present.

B.C.—Before Christmas: Part 3 (Tim Haring)

Problem: We don’t really understand the meaning of Christmas.
Solution: Christmas is about setting us free.
Today's Takeaway: Christmas is about setting people free.
Plant your feet firmly therefore within the freedom that Christ has won for us, and do not let yourselves be caught again in the shackles of slavery. –Phillips
