A unique Christmas narrative

December 25, 2021
Our text is from the Gospel of John. John does not have a normal Christmas narrative like Matthew or Luke. John doesn’t include shepherds or angels or many other things. He says it all on the banner right there. “The Word became flesh.” John’s unique Christmas account shouldn’t surprise us because the whole Gospel of John is distinct. John is a thematic Gospel, and John lays out most of the themes of His Gospel in the 18 verses we just heard.
