The above powerpoint presentation offers a unique theological perspective on Christmas and is useful for sermon, small group or sunday school discussions. It covers issus like:
  • Early Christmas heterodoxies:
    1.Docetism
    2.Apollinarianism
    3.Nestorianism
    4.Monophysitism
  • Orthodox Definition of the Hypostatic Union
  • Humanity of Christ in History
  • Humanity of Christ in the Bible
  • Incarnation
  • and more

Sample, facts about the virgin birth:

  • The miracle is in the conception, not the birth.
  • It is said to fulfill a prophecy predicted in Isa. 7:14 (Matt. 1:22-23).
  • Matthew and Luke are the only two to explicitly mention the virgin birth.
  • The birth narratives give no theological interpretation as to why Christ was born of a virgin other than the fulfillment of prophecy.
  • It was not part of the early Christian Kerygma.
