Your Top Ten Questions About Christmas

Ask Pastor John

The Christmas season is about “good news of great joy” (Luke 2:10). Heaven’s peace has come to earth. The Savior of the world has been born. Light has scattered the darkness. The devil’s regime has ended.

But Christmas also raises questions: Why did God wait so long to send his Son? Did Jesus diminish his divine power when he became human? How do I experience Christmas peace in crisis and sorrow? How should we handle holiday traditions like Santa Claus? Below are ten of your best questions about Christmas, answered by Pastor John and special guests to the Ask Pastor John podcast.

Featured Book: The Dawning of Indestructible Joy

The Christmas season is one of the busiest times of the year. But it is also a season of reflection and preparation for that special day when we mark Immanuel’s coming — the arrival of our eternal God in our own frail humanity.

The 25 brief devotional readings in The Dawning of Indestructible Joy carry us to Christmas Day. Our hope is that God would use these meditations to deepen and sweeten your adoration of Jesus and help you keep him at the center of your Christmas season.
