The Christian understanding of Christ’s birth has been unfortunately isolated from the context of redemptive history in most Christmas celebrations. However, the birth of Jesus (i.e. the incarnation) was not some random, divine event that came on to the scene without any context. Rather, the incarnation is the crescendo of a divine drama which has been playing itself out since time began. When viewed in this light, we see that Christ’s birth is the restoration of God’s tabernacling presence and guiding light.
