Bible Studies for December 20, 2020

December 20/27
Luke 2:1-20/John 1:1-18

Since it’s so close to Christmas, we’ll take a detour from our study of Mark’s gospel to look at two great Gospel accounts of the birth of the Savior. We’ll look at Luke 2:1-20 on December 20. This is the most well-known account of Jesus’ birth. On December 27 we’ll look at John 1:1-18, the most sublime account of the incarnation, “The Word became flesh.” 

We’ll use the Discovery Bible Study process to unpack these accounts and seek to understand how we may embrace this event most fully. I look forward to engaging in this study with you! – DLB
