"For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given . . . " (Isaiah 9:6)
Most people who celebrate Christmas know little more about it than Santa Claus, gifts, and Christmas trees. They lack understanding of the historical events that explain the true origins of Christmas and its significance for us today. This sad reality makes these sermons from P. G. Mathew all the more relevant for us to study, affirm, and proclaim.
Pastor Mathew’s sermons do not advocate a return to the Christmas of nostalgia; rather, they exalt Jesus Christ and the miracle of his virgin birth. The Westminster Shorter Catechism says this Jesus, “being the eternal Son of God, became man, and so was, and continues to be, God and man in two distinct natures, and one person, forever.” He is the only Redeemer of God’s elect. This is the message that shines forth brightly in this classic sermon collection.
