A Little Something Different This Christmas

The Same Stories Every Year

Every Christmas we hear the same stories that revolve around the birth of Christ. Yet, It seems like we are just checking the essential nativity story lines off our list.

  • Everyone knows about the shepherds.
  • The wise men. The virgin birth.
  • The star over Bethlehem.

Those narratives are just the circumstances surrounding the world’s most significant event. We often repeat these events without really getting to the significance of Christmas.

A Little Something Different This Christmas

This year, lets take a look at Christmas from a different perspective. Not the perspective we are well familiar with from the Gospels of Matthew & Luke. Let’s look at Christmas through the eyes of the most intelligent philosophers who lived to see the birth of Christ.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

Grant is our resident farmboy. He grew up in the cornfields of northwest Nebraska. He spent his early days living far from God. As Grant says, "I gave God the middle finger and didn't really care about faith at all." As a young man, he became convinced that God was real. He gave his life to Jesus and experienced God's amazing grace that previously made no sense to him. After experiencing that grace, Grant felt God calling him to teach the message of the gospel. Over the past 20 years, he has been preaching and teaching. Grant, his wife, Bethany, and their four children moved to Michigan in 2011, and he joined the 2|42 team in 2019. Grant is always good for a laugh, but more importantly, he explains biblical concepts in ways anyone can understand.
