At Christmastime, we celebrate the birth of Jesus, an event that forever changed our world and still gives us hope in the darkest of days. There’s no better way to get in the true Christmas spirit than to immerse yourself in the story of His coming. The Christmas Story presents selections from the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Every word comes from the New International Version of the Bible, but passages have been arranged to create one unbroken narrative. Read it together as a family or cozy up near the ﬁreplace by yourself to reﬂect on the day that the Son of God came near to dwell with us and bring light to a dark world.
