     | 3,380 views

    A different approach to the traditional Christmas sermons. From the Apostles John and Paul

    A Christmas Sermon As I sit to write this Christmas Sermon I feel rather strange because it will find its roots in the Gospel of John and the writings of the Apostle Paul and the writer of Hebrews rather than the Gospel’s of Luke and Matthew.

Let’s look to the first verses. JN 1:1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, ...read more
