A podcast link: The reality of miracles and their relevance to Christmas

Matthew 1:19-21 "And her husband Joseph, being a just man and unwilling to put her to shame, resolved to divorce her quietly. (20) But as he considered these things, behold, an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream, saying: "Joseph, Son of David, do not fear to take Mary as your wife, for that which is conceived in her is of the Holy Spirit."

Today's post features a link to a recent podcast that aims to equip people on how to defend and communicate the historicity of the virgin birth conception of Jesus. Just click on the link and then push the play button. The episode is roughly 12 minutes in length.

This time of year provides prime opportunity for Christians to share their faith with loved, friends and neighbors. In the podcast, I deal with the subject of the possibility of miracles, and how such a subject is relevant to the main truth of Christmas: namely Jesus' Christ's incarnation and virgin-birth conception. The hope is that the podcast will encourage and motivate readers and listeners to see why it is reasonable to believe in the historicity of the virgin - birth narratives of Jesus Christ in Matthew and Luke. To God be the glory!
