The Redemption of Scrooge, from Matt Rawle’s The Pop in Culture Series, shows us how the teachings of Jesus can be found in Dickens’ Christmas classic. From the ghosts of Christmas past, to the Life of the present, and the resurrection of Christmas future, this Advent study will “bless us every one” and reinvigorate our spiritual journeys as we look at this familiar story through the lens of faith.
For use during the group sessions, these videos feature Matt Rawle teaching in his friendly, casual, appealing style.
In Session 3, Matt Rawle points out that in the story of Scrooge, the ghost of Christmas Past gives way to the ghost of Christmas present. Similarly, the Christmas story starts in the past with “In those days,” but moves to a glorious present when the angels proclaim, “To you is born on this day in the city of David, a savior who is the messiah, the Lord.”
