Thanks to nativity scenes and Christmas pageants, most people are familiar with the story of Jesus’ birth…but maybe we’re too familiar? The fact is, nativity scenes and your typical Christmas pageants that chronologically tell the Christmas story aren’t the full story. When you read the Gospel accounts of the birth of Christ, you have two different stories (Matthew and Luke) that don’t line up easily. Additionally, John offers a metaphorical account while Mark, the first gospel written, apparently didn’t feel that the virgin birth story was worth mentioning.

Rather than just taking the Gospel records and combining them to fit a historical timeline, it’s important to take the time to understand what each God-inspired author is trying to communicate with the way they tell the story. Each writer is purposeful about what they include and why. In this VIVA! Series we will invite your group into exploring these elements as you explore the Christmas stories of the Bible. Here is what we’ll be discussing:
Week 1: Mark’s (Non)Account
Week 2: Matthew’s Account
Week 3: Luke’s Account
Week 4: John’s Account

This Resource Includes: • 4 weeks of small group curriculum (objective, activity, discussion, response)
• 6 background slides

There are plenty of people who are grateful that you do what you do. Your students are, their families are, and your church is, even though they may not say it often enough. I want to say thanks on behalf of them, and model the way we need to be saying thanks to the leaders that serve alongside us—in ten different ways—through this ebook.
