You are invited to join Pastor Smith for his Christmas Eve morning Bible Study with his Auditorium Class (the original broadcast was December 24, 2023, 9:15 AM). In this Bible study, Pastor Smith examines the conception and birth of Jesus Christ from Joseph’s perspective.

The Gospel of Matthew recorded Christ’s birth from Joseph’s perspective. (1:18-25). Matthew details Joseph’s dismay when he learned that Mary was with child before they came together as husband and wife. Joseph, by faith, obeyed the angel’s message and believed Mary’s child was the seed of the Holy Ghost and the Son of God. He took Mary as his wife. Pastor Smith examines Joseph and Mary’s physical and emotional exhaustion upon their arrival in Bethlehem and the spiritual joy that followed when Jesus was born.
