Christmas What Mary Knew
Bible Study Lesson

Once again we come to that time of year when we celebrate the birth of Christ. Because of the activities that often surround the festive season it is easy to overlook what should be the focal point of the season—the birth of the Savior. The purpose of this Christmas What Mary Knew Bible Study Lesson is to remind us of the unique events that were associated with His unique birth.

Throughout history there have been many significant births that have improved the lives of people, but none more so than the birth of Jesus. The birth of Jesus and what He accomplished during His earthly ministry, sets Him well apart from the accomplishments of the billions of other births.

In this Christmas What Mary Knew lesson we will examine the following events that were a result of Christ's birth:

  • When the birth of Jesus was first announced.
  • How Mary was aware she would be giving birth to God.
  • How Mary knew that her Child would die prematurely.
  • How she knew that Jesus would be resurrected.
  • Why Mary was aware that Psalm 51:5 also applied to her.
  • How she would have known where the birth of Christ would take place.
  • Why King Herod was troubled when he heard that a virgin had given birth.
  • Why Herod executed the Jewish baby boys, yet, spared the Jewish baby girls.
  • Why the Jewish religious leaders made no effort to make the short 5 mile stroll from Jerusalem to the manger.
  • What motivated the wise men to travel over 400 miles to see the Child.
  • The significance of the three unusual gifts that the wise men presented to the newborn Child.
  • Christmas is a time when people often exchange gifts. In this Christmas What Mary Knew Bible study lesson we will examine Christ's gift to the world and what the best gift a believer can present to the Redeemer.

Rev. Dr. Dean, Pastor- If you are looking for a man with a fresh perspective to lead your church to another level, consider inviting Jack to come in and lead a series of teaching sessions. Our church thoroughly enjoyed the time. He is competent in handling the scriptures, and has great insight about Biblical truths that are often neglected or simply not taught by design in so many of our churches today. You will not be disappointed if you embark on such a course.

Connie - I can't put the book Under the Cloud down!

David (a Sunday School teacher for Young Marrieds) - It is a great teaching resource that I know is reliable. There are specific topics that I can easily access for use in my class like "The Rock" and I especially liked the section on "Educating the Flesh."

Mary Anne - Under the Cloud is not just another man's opinion, it is all based on Scripture.

Antoinette (who has already purchased over 30 books) - As I give the book to friends and clients, I say to them "put down all the other books you are reading and read this one! I promise you Under the Cloud will change your life."

Julie - I started reading Under the Cloud yesterday and felt enveloped in love, as well as wonderful memories of being taught amazing and powerful truths through two incredible servants of God. Thank You!

Name withheld by us - I will send my husband and son off to the Middle East in Sept. for their second deployment with a copy of your book. (Likely to Afghanistan).

Karen - I am really enjoying your book. It sure is one that I will go back to. I have already marked it up.

John & Jane - We are both enjoying your book so much. Please bring us 10 more signed copies on Thursday.

Rob - My only criticism of the book is that I eventually ran out of pages.

Sally - Your book is fantastic! I just wish I had read it 20 years ago. It would have answered a lot of my questions.

Wayne - I loved the section on "Rigged Fights."
