If you haven’t already, you can experience the most impacting, inspiring and incredible event ever – the “the Birth of Jesus Christ!” Jesus was wrapped in glory by His Father in heaven above. He came to earth to offer you God’s gift of unconditional love. His birth began the world’s beautifulest love story of all love stories ever written, called “the gospel of Jesus Christ.” In other words, as stated in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.”
The spark of the good news gospel that begin with the birth of Jesus Christ lies in the word “gospel.” According to Strong’s Online Concordance, the word for gospel in Hebrew is “basar.” It means “ bearer of good news or to bring good news.” This word definitely describes the first coming of Christ. He was and still is the bearer and bringer of the good news. Since His birth, He continues to light up the lives of men and women everywhere and that includes you. “In Him was life; and the life was the light of men.” St. John 1:4(KJV)
Can you imagine 400 silent years of not hearing from God before the birth of Jesus Christ? The years of silence and sadness without hope was now a thing of the past. “Go Tell it on the Mountain, Jesus Christ is born.” “The Anointed One,” Jesus Christ, the Son of God, brought “joy to the world.” The hush of not hearing from God through a prophet was replaced by high-sounding hallelujahs. Jesus’ unique birth became the talk of the town and eventually the talk of the world. The dark world was awakened by a new light. The angels were singing a new song.
Josef Mohr, author and Franz Gruber, composed one of the world’s loveliest pieces of Jesus birth music and Christian song “Silent Night, Holy Night.” The words of that famous Christmas hymn describes the calmness of the holy, heavenly night that began the gospel of Jesus Christ. The birth of Jesus Christ was a wonderful miraculous event that brought everlasting life, light, peace and “glad tidings” to a dark, decaying, mixed-up and miserable world. Thousands of years later the preaching, teaching, prayers, signs wonders and miracles of Jesus Christ’s earthly ministry would still bring joy to trillions all over the world today, and that includes you.
Even though it’s been thousands of years since the birth of Jesus Christ, God’s Son. You’ll hear people asking questions such as, “Was Jesus really born?” “Does anyone really know the birth year of the Lord Jesus Christ?” “How old is Jesus Christ?” “Is Jesus God?” Why is He called “the anointed one” by some and “holy and anointed” by others? What does “He was anointed of the Holy Ghost” mean? There’s no need to get upset. It’s alright to ask questions. Asking questions are a part of life. On the other hand what matters most is the motive for which you are asking the questions. Jesus, the Son of God, asked a lot of questions.
Beginning with the book of Matthew, which provides us with information about the birth of Jesus Christ, you will find gospel questions Jesus asked. He asked questions of His disciples, rulers and others. Questions were used by Jesus as a teaching technique. He asked questions about His own ministry. “Who do men say that I am?”Mark 9:29(KJV) You can find many of His questions for example, in Christian books by Christian authors, such as Martin B. Copenhaver’s “Jesus is the Question” in which he writes about the 307 questions asked by Jesus.
