From Sunday:
The birth narrative of John is different from the other gospels. Gone are the barn and the manger, the Holy Family, the shepherds, angels, and wise men. Today is the day when we usually celebrate the arrival of the gifts with the magi. But in John there is no gold, frankincense, and myrrh. No, gifts. What was John thinking? How can we celebrate Christmas without gifts?
Well John did not skip the presents, it just looks that way. In fact, there is a big gift here in our text (John 1:1-18).
En Agape',
Rev. Michael Weeks
