The Birth of Jesus – Good News of Great Joy

Now the birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise: When as his mother Mary was espoused to Joseph, before they came together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost,” (Matthew 1:18).

Many things have been said and written about the birth of Jesus Christ. I could write about where he was born. Or I could discuss how he was born, or I may even write about the significance of his birth.

Nevertheless, I chose not to write on any of those things today. Instead, I desire to address what the angel of the Lord told the shepherds concerning the birth of Jesus Christ.

He consoled and edified them with these words: “… Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people,” (Luke 2:10).

Why? “For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord,” (Luke 2:11).

Is Jesus Christ the Lord your Savior?

This Topic Is a Hot Debate – When Was Jesus Christ Born?

On one hand, the exact date of Jesus Christ’s birth is not known with certainty. On the other hand, there remains some debate among historians and scholars concerning this.

So, when was Christ born is still a big debate?

As a result, many people, Christians included, will tell you that Jesus was born on Christmas Day. However, the Bible does not support this theory. It is silent on this!

Therefore, the Bible doesn’t explicitly inform us when Jesus was born but it tells us where and how?

However, it is widely believed that Jesus was born during the reign of King Herod the Great, who died in 4 BCE.

Based on historical and biblical references, many scholars suggest that Jesus was likely born a few years before the common era (BCE) or around 4 to 6 BCE.

It’s important to note that the Holy Bible does not explicitly explain the specific day, month, and year of Jesus’ birth.

Consequently, I shall stay away from that discussion about him being born on December 25th.

Thus, his birthday remains uncertain and the subject of various interpretations and speculations. As a result, the most important thing, for me, is that he was born, end of story!


Israel Had a Savior

There’s just one Savior and his name is Jesus Christ the Lord. Before him, there was no Savior for all the peoples of the earth, but the Jews had one, the Lord God Almighty.

Isaiah reminds Israel of their Savior. He tells them

See whom He belongs to? Israel! He’s holy to them. He wasn’t the God of the world or the God of all other nations. No, he was only the God of Israel.

But the birth of Jesus Christ, the Savior, is the manifestation of the grace of God to all humanity!

I’m the Lord and I’m the Only Savior

Therefore, this prophet of God reinforces this fact to Israel that God is their Savior.

So, what about the remainder of the world? What of all the other nations of Earth? Who was their god and savior?

Who is Jacob (Israel)? The father of the Jews!

Hosea joins with Isaiah and proclaims to the Jews that God is their Savior, for he says:

Why is the Birth of Jesus Good Tiding of Great Joy?

It represents the fulfillment of a promise the Lord made to the Jews.

This ubiquitous prophet of God, Isaiah, appears yet again to educate us about God’s promise of Jesus Christ.

O Zion, that bringest good tidings, get thee up into the high mountain; O Jerusalem, that bringest good tidings, lift up thy voice with strength; lift it up, be not afraid; say unto the cities of Judah, Behold your God!” (Isaiah 40:9).

And again: “How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of him that bringeth good tidings, that publisheth peace; that bringeth good tidings of good, that publisheth salvation; that saith unto Zion, Thy God reigneth!” (Isaiah 52:7 & Nahum 1:15).

The Birth of Jesus Signals This!

Subsequently, we realize that the angel of God (Gabriel) had good news about the birth of Jesus Christ, but the Savior was good news of himself.

The birth of Jesus signals a transition!

So, now we witness a transition. The Lord shifts from being Savior of the Jews only to become Savior of the world.

Even though the angel of God announced him as Savior to them, he’s also the Savior “to all people”, for he’s the Savior of the world.

“… Now we believe, not because of thy saying: for we have heard him ourselves, and know that this is indeed the Christ, the Saviour of the world,” (John 4:42).

Why Does the World Need a Savior?

The Jews and the rest of the world needed a Savior because of “the Sin of the World“.

“The next day John seeth Jesus coming unto him, and saith, Behold the Lamb of God, which taketh away the sin of the world,” (John 1:29).

This is the sin of Adam that all of us inherited, (Romans 5:12).

It was still present and its influence affected all the inhabitants of the earth. Therefore, the Savior would remove it and save us from all sins.

Consequently, we perceive that the name Jesus means savior.

According to Matthew, “And [Mary] shall bring forth a son, and thou shalt call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins,” (Matthew 1:21).

Jesus is our Savior.

So, Jesus saved “his people” (the Jews) from their sins, and in the process, he also saved the rest of the world.

The Birth of Jesus Satisfied This Need

However, because all persons have sinned none is qualified to remove the sin of humanity being in a sinful state himself, (Romans 3:23).

Therefore, there was a need for a sinless man. But how is that possible when “all have sinned”?

Similarly, under Moses’ Law there is no removal of sins without the spilling of blood. Someone or some animal had to die to remove the sin of a person, (Hebrews 9:22).

As a result, the Lord made a search of earth and couldn’t find anyone who met these two prerequisites. Subsequently, he made an important decision.

He Decides Concerning the Savior

He decided, in order to save humanity He must become a man, for God is a Spirit, (John 4:24 and 1 Timothy 3:16).

So, God impregnated Mary with Himself and produced Jesus Christ the Savior of the World, His Son. God became a man. Nevertheless, He remains holy and righteous and He possesses sinless blood.

Thus, when this God-man bled, His blood, by the Law, cleansed us of all our sins and made us acceptable to God. In other words, He redeemed us from sin to Himself.

“But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin,” (1 John 1:7).

The Cleansing Blood of Jesus Christ

The blood of Jesus cleans us from all types of sin. It has the power to clean us from lying, murder, witchcraft, deceit, and stealing, you name the sin and his blood makes us righteous before God from it. But we must have faith in the name of Jesus, (Romans 3:25).

The Bible describes it thus:

And [God] saw that there was no man, and wondered that there was no intercessor: therefore his arm brought salvation unto him; and his righteousness, it sustained him,” (Isaiah 59:16).


Ultimately then, the birth of Jesus Christ is the manifestation of the Savior. The manifestation of God. A revelation of the “arm” of God. The Father manifested as the Son.

He was Savior to Israel before he became the savior of the World. Because He deals with the Jews first then with the Gentiles or the remainder of the world.

Therefore, the birth of Jesus Christ is the good news of great joy. Because now, not only the Jews but the entire world, all people, have a Savior in Christ the Lord.

Consequently, the birth of Jesus Christ validates that Jesus Christ is the only route to God and that Christianity is the only means by which humanity can be saved from all sins.

The Birth of Jesus Christ the Supreme Birth

Every leader, of every religion, has a man with sins, except Jesus Christ for he is the only God-man without sin. He’s the Savior of the world. The birth of Christ is from heaven.

It was conceived there and approved there and humanity has no say in it. The birth of Jesus Christ is the supreme birth.

It cannot be duplicated and will never be replicated. And it stands up to scrutiny from one and all. Jesus Christ is the Almighty God!

  1. “So, what about the remainder of the world”
    The gospels are clear, “Go ye therefore, and teach all nations”
    Matthew 28:19

  2. The rest of the world benefits too. Jesus is the Savior of the entire world. So, he saves not just Jews but everyone else!
    However, Lawrence, your quote speaks to the teaching of the Gospel and not to the birth of a Savior.
