Many houses during the Christmas season have a nativity decoration depicting the scene of Jesus' birth. Many people could list details of his birth: shepherds and wise men, a star, angels singing, laid in a manger, born of a virgin.

These two weeks and on Christmas Eve, we are going to see that Jesus was born to bring us into God’s presence.
