Text: Matthew 2:1-23
Pastor Curt Stapleton

Our sermon series on “Who is Jesus?” reaches its climax today with his birth and the arrival of the Magi to worship him. Through Herod’s slaughter of young boys, Jesus’ family’s flight to Egypt and their return to Galilee, we see the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecies again and again. And even in the joyful story of Jesus’ nativity, we get a foreshadowing of the cross to come, which is the story of the gospel.
