Biblical Concept: Christmas, the Humility of God

 

Christmas[1] - The Creator[2] God[3] became human[4], lived as humans[5], suffered for humans[6], and died physically[7] and spiritually[8] for humans. An amazing plan[9]. The humility[10] of God--unexpected by angels[11]--is the master-stroke[12] in the Angelic Conflict. Merry Mass of Christ.
