Kudos to the New York Times for publishing two excellent articles on Christmas, and on Christmas Eve, of all times.
The first is “Humanizing Jesus” by Peter Wehner. Don’t let the title worry you. This op-ed is not denying the deity of Jesus or turning him into nothing more than a “good teacher.” Rather, Wehner reflects thoughtfully on the true meaning of Christmas, which is God becoming human in Jesus. What a refreshing piece!
I highly recommend both articles and commend the New York Times for giving voice to classic Christian expressions of faith on this day before Christmas.
