Did he intend for the narrative just to be used for children’s pagents and to provide ideas for lawn decorations? Surely he had more serious purposes in mind, but sadly this beginning part of his Gospel has been often trivialized down through the centuries.

What important information was he conveying? What issues facing his readers did he confront? Could Jesus of Nazareth, a place thought to produce no good thing, really be the Messiah? Hadn’t his birth actually been a scandal? Why would “wise men” bring his gifts? How many wise men were there anyway? And that part about the star- maybe it wasn’t actually a star.“A Jewish Christmas Story” is a study guide which brings new insights to a story with which many are familiar but one whose real meaning is seldom considered seriously.
