Where Does the Story of Christmas Begin?

How do you tell the Christmas story?  What type of language do you use?  Many Christians find the Christmas story most clearly explained through the gospel of Luke.  But where does the story begin?  On today’s program, Dr. Mohler notes that the Christmas story begins far before the incarnation two thousand years ago.  While the particulars are found in Bethlehem, the story begins long before the manger scene.  The bible is very clear that the Christmas story begins at the very beginning of time as God’s primary plan for redeeming a fallen world.  That’s why getting the Christmas story right is so incredibly important.  If we get it wrong, we’re not just missing Christmas; we can easily miss the gospel, too.
