“When he had called together all the people’s chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born. ‘In Bethlehem in Judea,‘ they replied, ‚for this is what the prophet has written: ‘But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.’” Matthew 2:4-6
The Christmas story serves as a link between the Old and New Testaments. God’s promise to send a Savior and the many prophecies fulfilled surrounding Christ’s birth all demonstrate the harmony of the Bible. All Scripture tells only one story — the story of Jesus!
