Someone once said that if the writers of the gospels were trying to write a biography of Jesus, they sure did a terrible job. We get so little information about Jesus’ childhood and formative years from their accounts. With that said, we are all very familiar with the stories of shepherds and angels and babies wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. What about the other stories of Jesus’ infancy and childhood, though? What about old men and women serving in the temple their whole life, having their life’s dreams fulfilled by the boy? What about strange visitors from far away lands? What about threatened kings, slaughtering babies to keep from losing power? What about pesky, defiant preteens who never do what they’re told? Those are the stories we are going to look at this month, as we prepare to receive the Christ child once again. May we knock the dust off as we look again at the wonderful, terrible, awe-inspiring, terrifying mystery of God become man, who is Jesus, our Savior and Lord.
