Day nineteen awards you with a chocolate egg from behind the door. It is time for the Jewish scholars. Herod may have been a Jew but he did not know his Bible. How common that is. So he called in the consultants,
(Mat 2:4 KJV) And when he had gathered all the chief priests and scribes of the people together, he demanded of them where Christ should be born.This was a matter of prophecy.
(Mic 5:2 KJV) But thou, Bethlehem Ephratah, though thou be little among the thousands of Judah, yet out of thee shall he come forth unto me that is to be ruler in Israel; whose goings forth have been from of old, from everlasting.The Bible is tied to history and geography. It is amazing how helpful these little, overlooked details has been to archeologists. When they read the Bible as if it were true they kept finding references that helped them find what they were looking for.
Obviously that should apply to us during this season when we are focused on the incarnation. Write your own sermon.
