in a from a manger...
It’s Christmas time…Joseph, Mary, Jesus & the manger & all that stuff (The Nativity). John the Apostle however draws us away from the manger where our attention is drawn to an all-encompassing, panoramic, picture over time & space...no Tardis, Flux Capacitor or Lightning Bolt required.
John’s nativity scene has the birth of Creation, John the Baptist-prophet of the Most High, Jesus the Word, Moses & the birth of the Law & children born again by Grace & Truth. John 1:1-18.
The foundation of Christmas & the abolition of slavery to sin
forever & ever & ever amen. A truly glorious Christmas.
