Some think of Jesus’ birth as a myth, just a story. But the Bible makes clear that it is true, a first-hand report from “eyewitnesses.” The Greek word, used here for the only time in the Bible, means seeing with our own eyes. Often used in medicine, it was a word familiar to Luke, the physician.

Thus, the story of Jesus’ birth, like the Bible itself, provides an account without embellishment by people who saw events for themselves. These “servants of the word” were concerned not with themselves but with serving God and handing down personal narratives of what they had seen.

Luke carefully investigated the accounts of these men and women, meticulously reporting what they had seen. He learned for himself what was true. In the process, he also became an eyewitness.

Our journey of faith begins with eyewitnesses and servants of the Word – parents, family members, friends, and others who have had a personal encounter with God, and who share personal accounts of what they know to be true.

Each of us, in turn, has the opportunity to take this journey for ourselves. We can carefully investigate every account, listen, and study to learn the truth for ourselves. You are called to be an eyewitness to your generation, sharing what you know to be true. Give a personal account of how Jesus has changed your life and how grateful you are that He came into this world.
