    The Scrooge in All of Us Matthew 2:13-18 Christmas is one of those times that almost demands that we be creative with the familiar- the story of Bethlehem, and the baby Jesus in a manger. The angels we have heard on high. You might feel that you are familiar with the story that you ...read more

Only the oldest son had the right to make this request. In effect, he was saying “I wish you were dead”. In Middle Eastern culture, such a son ...read more
