    What is the true meaning of Christmas? Why is the birth of a Jewish boy in Bethlehem the center of human history? And why is the feast of Christmas so beloved, not just among Christians, but even among unbelievers?

    In this new Bible study, Dr. Pitre answers these and other questions by going back to the Bible and ancient tradition to shed light on the little-known Jewish roots of this beloved holiday. In this presentation, you will learn about:

    • The Birth of "the Christ"--how Jesus was not the first "Christ," and why keeping the "Christ" in Christmas is so important
    • The Sign of the Manger--why Jesus is laid in a manger, and what it reveals about the mystery of his identity
    • The Mystery of the Magi--who the Magi were and how they knew to follow the star to the newborn Jewish king
    • The Star of Bethlehem--what ancient Christian tradition reveals about the kind of star that led the Magi to Jesus
    • The Significance of December 25th--the real reason Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus on December 25th
    • The Fulfillment of Hannukah--how the birth of Jesus fulfills the Jewish winter festival of "Lights"

    Like so many other aspects of the Catholic faith, if you want to understand the true meaning of Christmas, you not only have to go back to the Bible, you have to go back to the Old Testament and ancient Jewish tradition. If you'd like to deepen your understanding and celebration of this beloved season, then this Bible study is for you.

Typically delightfully Dr. Brant Pitre

For those who love reading Dr. Pitre's Jewish Roots books, there was a lot of information gleaned elsewhere. But some of it was new, and it was just great having it all put together in a Christmas parcel. I loved it!
