The Land and the Book
Air Date December 20, 2014
Christmas is almost here! And as we get ready to open presents and visit with family and friends, we don't want to forget the reason for the season…the birth of Jesus. "For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord!" On this week's program we'll be looking at the birth of Jesus…but using only the Old Testament. What did God have to say about this event
it ever took place?
Then in our devotional time we'll continue our series on selected prayers from the Bible by looking at Luke 1 and Mary's song of praise to God over the promised birth of her heavenly Son!
