In this Christmas Edition episode of One Question with Pastor Adam, Pastor Adam answers the question, “Why did God become human?” The first chapter of the gospel of John states the Word became flesh. Matthew’s gospel describes the appearance of an angel to Joseph in a dream when Joseph was considering divorcing Mary as his birth story. Luke’s gospel describes the story of the nativity most of us are familiar with.
In the gospel of Matthew, the angel declares Jesus will save us from our sins, not from God’s wrath. The incarnation invites us to choose which God with us we are going to follow, Jesus, the God of love, or the Caesars, the gods of power. Each Christmas we get to choose.
“One Question with Pastor Adam” is a Raven Foundation production.
