The Christmas season is a time of year when the birth of Jesus is supposed to be celebrated. Instead, the focus shifts to the food, family, parties, music, decorations, and presents. Why is this the case? Perhaps it is because people do not see the importance of Jesus’ birth. They understand the value of parties and presents, but question the importance of the birth of a child who lived over 2,000 years ago. This series seeks to show that the birth of Jesus matters – Christmas matters.

When sin entered into the world, death came with it. When death entered into the world people started focusing on making their lives on earth as good as possible. This continues in the world today.
