John Whitcomb: January 1, 2018

Noted author and Bible teacher Dr. John Whitcomb takes a look back at the well-known Christmas shepherds in Luke 2 and their historical predecessor, the young shepherd boy David, to see what they can teach us about the real message of Christmas. “I want to be humble before You,” Dr. Whitcomb states. “I want to be like a shepherd. Humble me before You, Lord.” Dr. Whitcomb also turns to the famous passage in Philippians 2 to teach us how Christ, our Good Shepherd, humbled Himself so greatly on our behalf in becoming our Savior. Host Wayne Shepherd and all of us at “Encounter God’s Truth” pray that you are having a blessed Christmas season grounded in God’s Word, which is true from the beginning to the end! Let us learn from the shepherds of Bethlehem. As we conclude our presentation of the Christmas story for this year, Whitcomb Ministries also hopes that you will have a Happy New Year! Please join us for much more Bible teaching in 2018.
