Jesus Christ: God's Revelation to the World (Second Edition)

Chapter 6: A Child is Born


A Child is Born

Film Focus: In this video Chris Stefanick reflects on the Nativity of Jesus, and the radical claim that God became a baby in order to love and save the world.

Text Focus: Pages 187-188

Discussion Questions:

  1. What does Stefanick say is the central claim of Christianity? What is this claim based on, fact or a story?
  2. What kind of images do humans create for God? What characteristics does the “world-made” God have?
  3. In what ways does God reveal himself differently than how humans would choose? What are the characteristics of God’s love?
  4. What did Jesus, the God-made-man, come looking for in humanity?
