We rarely connect the primeval prophecy to the celebration of Christmas.
The sign given to the house of David had no specified time frame for its fulfillment. The embedded message to Ahaz did.
The tower of the flock that Mary and Joseph passed entering Bethlehem may have been their only hope for shelter and seclusion.
The true environment for the Nativity was likely not what we typically envision.
Open your heart to Christmas by taking a fresh look at the biblical narrative.
