Information about the birth of Jesus Christ.


The Virgin Birth Of Christ

“And, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.”—Matthew 2:9 The virgin’s child; the Father’s Only Begotten Son: Immanuel! God with us! Let all the people clap their hands and shout for joy! Oh, the depths of meaning to mankind in that God-given name Immanuel! Heaven and Earth come together at His advent. An angel from the throne of God, suddenly coming upon the lowly shepherds at night, announces this stupendous event, while the light of God shines round about them. No wonder they were … Read More >


Keeping Christmas

In looking back over the files of The Moody Church News, my own heart was stirred by a sermon preaching in 1925 by my revered predecessor under whom the present building was erected, Dr. P.W. Philpott. We are reproducing it in this issue because of its intrinsic value, feeling sure it will prove to have a real message for many of our present day readers. Dr. Philpott, we rejoice to say, is still “going strong” and is being blessedly used of God in his nation-wide evangelistic and Bible teaching ministry.—Harry A. Ironside As we read again the sweet … Read More >


No Room In The Inn

And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.” —Luke 2:7 Doubtless there seemed to be very good reasons, at least in the minds of the innkeeper, why it was impossible to entertain Joseph and Mary when they came to Bethlehem to be taxed. There must have been many other Bethlehemites who had hastened thither in order that they too might be properly enrolled. Probably many of these were much better able to pay for accommodations than the Nazareth carpenter … Read More >


Sharing The Gift Of Christmas Through Worship

Experiencing the heart of Christmas this holiday season—and every day of the year! You would think that after enjoying 71 Christmas seasons and preparing for my 72nd, my enthusiasm for the holiday would wear off, but it hasn’t. I still look forward to Christmas for many reasons. For one thing, I immediately think of our family; our three daughters, their husbands, and a total of eight grandchildren. If you aren’t a parent or a grandparent, imagine what it would be like to see the children’s excitement, their anticipation, and the connection we all enjoy with one another at get-togethers; whether … Read More >


John Harper's Last Convert

John Harper’s Last Convert - Sharing the Gift of Christmas One Minute before You Die When I became pastor of The Moody Church in 1980, I knew one of the church rooms was named Harper Hall in memory of the Scottish evangelist who was on a journey to The Moody Church but drowned when the Titanic sank in April 1912. Only recently, however, did I learn the full story of this remarkable man. Harper’s reputation as an evangelist was so well known that he was invited to speak at The Moody Church in 1910. I have in my possession a … Read More >


The Purpose Of Bethlehem

Sermon preached by Pastor Alan Redpath in The Moody Church on Sunday morning, December 22, 1957. “But when the fulness of time was come, God sent forth his Son, born of a woman, born under the law that he might redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of sons.”—Galatians 4:4–5 These verses come right in the center of a tremendous argument which Paul was bringing to the Christians in Galatia. Perhaps you remember that he was so deeply concerned for them because even though they were believers, they were in great danger of being … Read More >


Christmas & COVID

Why COVID-19 Is Not The Last Pandemic To mask or not to mask? To vaccinate or not? Should vaccinations be mandatory or a matter of personal choice? Should children be required to wear masks at school? Even after this variant or any other has run its course, what comes next? I reply, plenty. With overwhelming questions like these, the celebration of Christ’s birth at Christmas doesn’t seem to have any relevance to the realities we face. Jesus predicted pandemics like this, “Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be great earthquakes, and in various places famines … Read More >


A Christmas Meditation

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”—Isaiah 9:6 It may not be out of place to wish you a joyful Christmas in the name of the Lord Jesus, and may it be a time when we all get beyond the tinsel and the outward to the reality and joy of the coming of God’s own Son. May He be very real to you all at this time. Our … Read More >


The Annunciation

And in the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent from God unto a city of Galilee, named Nazareth. To a virgin espoused to a man whose name was Joseph, of the house of David: and the virgin’s name was Mary. And the angel came in unto her, and said, Hail, thou that art highly favoured, the Lord is with thee: blessed art thou among women. And when she saw him, she was troubled at his saying, and cast in her mind what manner of salutation this should be. And the angel said unto her, Fear not, Mary: for thou … Read More >


Should We Celebrate Christmas?

From the time of the early church, December 25th has been celebrated throughout Christianity. It has served to commemorate the incarnation of Jesus Christ. Even though He was not literally born on that particular December 25th over two thousand years ago, Christmas day and the surrounding holiday season reminds us yearly of the glorious condescension of the infinite to the finite. At The Moody Church, we heartily partake of this season of guided worship and family fellowship.   Outside of Christianity, Christmas has accumulated secular, cultural significance. Many observe the holiday with no understanding of who Jesus Christ is or why He came … Read More >
