Christmas Test Part 1

Dear Prayer Warriors,

As promised, below are questions #1-17 of the Christmas Test. Next Monday, I will post the answers to these questions as well as provide questions #18-34. Each question is in True/False format, and all answers are backed up with Scripture (as opposed to the "Hallmark theology" previously referenced). Good Luck!

True or False? According to Scripture. . .

1. In the style of all great heroic epics of the Greco/Roman period, the Christmas story begins with the birth of a god-man, a superhero, conceived of the gods and imbued with both human traits and divine power.

2. Of the four Gospels, only one (the book of Luke) gives an account of the actual birth of Christ.

3. Jesus was born on December 25th.

4. In accordance with the early Church in the Book of Acts and the teachings of the Apostles, we celebrate the birth of Christ each year.

5. Contrary to conventional wisdom, the Christmas Revelation actually spans a period of several years.

6. Unlike many of the priests, Pharisees, Sadducees and scribes of the time, Zacharias was both righteous and blameless in his service of the Lord.

7. In the temple, Zacharias was confronted by the Angel Gabriel, who foretold the birth of a son to his wife Elizabeth and commanded that the boy be named “John.”

8. Because of this and other duties, the Angel Gabriel is known as the “Messenger Angel.”

9. Gabriel's role continues in that he also announced the coming birth of Jesus to both Mary and Joseph.

10. At the time of Christ’s birth, many Gentiles were also waiting expectantly for a Messiah. Among these were Wise Men, righteous god seekers, skilled in the interpretation of God’s working through the stars and signs. These were the Wise Men who came to Jesus bearing gifts.

11. The Magi, although Gentiles, were familiar with the Biblical prophetic texts and no doubt kept them among other sacred religious and mystical writings in their libraries. They recognized the star as the fulfillment of these prophecies, and as a result, headed out for Bethlehem to offer their gifts to the new born king.

12. Even if you had known the prophecies concerning Jesus, you would not have been able to join the shepherds in worshiping the baby Jesus as He lay in the manger.

13. The angels who appeared to the shepherds were led by Gabriel.

14. The angels told the shepherds where to find the baby Jesus.

15. The birth of Christ, although prophesied in Scripture, was hidden from all except those to whom God chose to reveal it through His angels.

16. The Christmas Revelation relates the birth of two babies.

17. In the Christmas Revelation, the first appearance of an angel is to Mary.

By His mercy,
II Corinthians 4:1
