Full Product Description

In Christmas: The Original Story, Margaret Barker explores the nature of the Christmas stories and the nature and use of Old Testament prophecy.

Beginning with John’s account, it then goes on to include Luke and Matthew, the apocryphal gospels, and the traditions of the Coptic Church, to throw light upon the wise men and their gifts, the character of Herod, Matthew’s use of prophecy, the holy family in Egypt.

Christmas also discusses the stories we get from the Infancy Gospel of Jesus and the development of the Orthodox Christmas icon, as well as the Christmas story and the Mary material in the Koran.

This is an accessible book based on scholarly work.
