One of my absolute favorite Christmas experiences is reading the story of Jesus. Author Liz Curtis Higgs brings her readers into the Christmas setting and story. It’s a magnificent Christmas Bible study based on the eyewitness story of Elizabeth, Mary, and Anna. Grab a hot cinnamon tea, some homemade ginger cookies, and put a log on the fire. Take some time to read this magnificent Bible study with Lisa Curtis Higgs and we revisit the Christmas story.

The Lord chose to be born into poverty, to identify with the unseen of society—the unkempt, the unpopular, the undernourished. His earthly parents had nothing the world counts as valuable. Liz Curtis Higgs

Jesus would bear much influence, but he would not always be liked. Liz Curtis Higgs
