Christmas begins what Easter celebrates. The child in the cradle becomes the King on the cross. The promise of Christmas brings a lifetime of hope. The gifts of Easter reveal God's self-giving love.
Because of Bethlehem/He Chose the Nails is a collection of two video-based Bible studies for Christmas and Easter by Max Lucado.
Because of Bethlehem
Because of Bethlehem, God knows what it's like to be human. Because of Bethlehem, when we talk to him about tough times, he understands. He's been there. He's been here. Because of Bethlehem, we know he doesn't say, "Clean up before you come in." He offers, "Come in and I'll clean you up." Because of Bethlehem, we no longer have marks on our record...just grace.

He Chose the Nails
The last moments leading up to Jesus' death were not left up to chance. God chose the path; he selected the nails. Our Lord planted the trio of crosses and painted the sign. And in those details are gifts Christ provided for us. The cross. The thorns. The nails. His seamless robe. The empty tomb. God didn't have to give us all these things, you know. The only required act for our salvation was the shedding of blood, yet he did much more. So much more.
