The story of Christmas still holds many questions. A faithful young woman is told by an angel that she is highly favored by God, and that she will bear the child who will be placed inside of her who will take away the sins of the world.
Just who is this girl, and what set her apart from the thousands of other Jewish women of her day?
Why did God go to such extreme lengths to save you and me?
And why exactly would Jesus, God the Son, volunteer for such a mission?
These three “whys” are explored and answered in this somewhat different take on the Christmas story.
