The Sign and the Song

Morning Service
Dec 22, 2013

Against the backdrop of the powerful Roman Empire and reign of Caesar Augustus, God chose for Jesus to be born in humble circumstances, announcing his birth to a group of common shepherds. In this message Alistair Begg explains that the sign of His humble beginning foreshadows his ignominious death on a cross and burial wrapped in linen. The peace with God proclaimed by the angels overshadows the Pax Romana and finds its significance by those who see with the eyes of faith and make room for the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ.

Luke 2:12-17
