The 6-Hour Christmas Story Part 1

Luke 1:38Matthew 1:24

A snapshot out of what we now call the “Christmas Story”

And Mary said --

“Behold, the maidservant of the Lord: --

Let it be unto me, according to your word.”

 “Then Joseph, being aroused from sleep, did as the angel of the Lord commanded

 him, and took to him his wife,

And did not know her until she had brought forth her first-born son,

And he called his name JESUS.

Bryan Aalborg, pastor of the Foster Seventh-day Adventist church in Asheville, North Carolina, preached this sermon on December 11, 2010

  BRYAN Aalborg: “ Growing up as a youngster, and even as a teen-ager I had in

 my mind, ---, A six-hour version of what we now call the Christmas story ---

And I still have to re-read these records

to refresh myself, reminding myself as to how the birth of Jesus really happened –

At least as much as we can really tell from the Bible

and what I mean by the 6 –hour version is this –

that all the things that we read about in the scriptures –

that we associate with the Christmas Story

It all happened in about SIX HOURS.

         The journey to Bethlehem,

         The angels singing to the shepherds –

         The shepherds coming to the manger –

         The arrival of the Wise Men, and then the

         Journey from Bethlehem down to Egypt –

         It all happened in one evening in about SIX HOURS."
