Sermon: "The Birth of Jesus Christ," Part 1

A fire destroys a row home in Philadelphia, killing seven people, including four children. The Israeli military strikes targets along the Gaza strip, killing over 200 militants. In a world such as this, what is the meaning of the birth of Jesus Christ? How is it relevant? What difference does it make? Watch as Pastor MacLaren explains from Matthew's gospel how the birth of Jesus reveals his divine origins and saving mission. This video was recorded on Sunday, December 28, 2008, at First Presbyterian Church in Perkasie, PA. The views expressed by Rev. MacLaren are his own, and do not necessarily represent those of First Presbyterian Church or the Orthodox Presbyterian Church. You are free to share this video with anyone who might be helped by it.
