In this entertaining and illuminating chat, the team explore the real meaning of Christmas.

Comments

It has become commonplace around this time of year to hear uninformed comments from Christians such as “the reason for the season”, “put Christ back into Christmas”, “let’s reclaim Christmas”, “celebrate the true meaning of Christmas” or “the original Christian meaning of Christmas”. It is therefore sad and disappointing that this website aligns itself with these perspectives. I expected better.

Some cursory internet research into the true roots of Christmas will quickly reveal: the reason for the season was never Christ; Christ was never in Christmas; the first century believers had no claim on or connection to Christmas; the true meaning of Christmas is not Christ; and the original meaning of Christmas was not Christian.

Further research and study will show that the birth of our Messiah has nothing to do with Christmas and everything to do with the Feast of Tabernacles. This would point to His conception as being around the time of Hanukkah. Christmas is nowhere in this picture. Secular society never hijacked Christmas; it was their invention to start with.

By all means let us obey the words of Deuteronomy 6:6-7 and pass on the story of Yeshua’s conception and birth to future generations. But for the honour of His name, we must do it at the right times. “Be holy, for I am holy”.
