Christmas

The Significance of the Virgin Birth

Television interviewer Larry King was asked if he could only interview one person in history, who would it be.
    Larry said, "Jesus Christ."
    "And if you could only ask Him one question, what would it be?"
    "Were you really born of a virgin?"
    The reporter asked, "Why would you ask that question?"
    King replied, "Because that would define history for me."
 
Isa 7:14 says, "Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sing: Behold, a virgin will be with child and bear a son, and she will call His name Immanuel" (which translated means 'God with us.')

“She did,” he replied. “But where in the world was I going to find a fake jeep!”

That is one big baby

Years ago, the pastor of a church in a small town ordered a sign for their outdoor manger scene.  The sign company needed to know the dimensions and wording of the sign. 

 

The next day a Western Union employee was shocked to see this message come across the wire: “For unto us a child is born.  8 feet long, 3 feet wide.”



Sad but True

In an attempt to keep up with the holiday spirit, some comical police officers posted the following sign on a chaulkboard in plain view of those sitting behind bars at the jail: "Only 10 more shoplifting days til Christmas." --Reader's Digest, December 2003
