The Lord’s Incarnation

Over the next few weeks, I’d like to look at the Lord’s tempting in the wilderness, His agony in the Garden, His arrest and trial, and then His crucifixion. What I’d like to do is take the four accounts in the Gospels and bring them together into a single narrative for each event. But before ...

How was Jesus Born?
