Where Does the Story of Christmas Begin?

With every Christmas season there is much that surrounds us that reminds us of the birth of Jesus. There are live nativity scenes at churches, little knick-knack nativity scenes in homes and a lot of talk about the birth narratives of Jesus as found in the Gospels. But what all of this can do is create the confusing notion that the narrative of the incarnation is a New Testament narrative that begins in Bethlehem. This near-sighted reading, however, robs the narrative of its history and its power.

So where does the narrative of the incarnation begin in the Bible? Check out what Dr. Mohler has to say in his post, "Where Does the Story of Christmas Begin?"
