Word Made Flesh: THE HISTORICAL REALITY OF CHRISTMAS
Discover how the gospels of John the Elder and Luke the Historian record the details of the incarnation—God becoming man. Each of these 25 devotions is prompted by a question about the historical accuracy of the Christmas account. Each reminds us that Christmas is not a sweet children’s story or fairytale. It is a historical event. In our skeptical times, John and Luke help us reaffirm the objective reality of Christmas.
We hope these devotions will remind you that we need more than just a spiritual idea or inspiring story. We need a real flesh-and-blood Savior, one who stepped into human history, changing it—and us—forever.
These devotions come to us from the faculty of Martin Luther College, the WELS College of Ministry. This is the college where we train our Pastors, Teachers, and Staff Ministers. These devotions are designed for you to take a moment and marvel at the historical reality of Jesus, our God and Savior. He is the Word made flesh for our salvation.
