John Whitcomb: December 12, 2016

Christ Before His Birth (Part 1)

Consider how the Gospel of John opens by describing the marvel of Christ’s incarnation—this time on "Encounter God’s Truth" with Bible teacher Dr. John Whitcomb. We open a message on “Christ Before His Birth” this week as we continue our Advent series on “The Eternal Son—Our Savior.” With host Wayne Shepherd, we remember at this Christmastime that God’s Word is true from the beginning to the end. And Christ is also called the living Word of God. May your holidays be brightened by this Light who has come into our darkness to bring truth, joy and peace. We present this program with thanks to Bayside Community Church in Tampa, Fla., for allowing us to share this sermon with you.
