LET EARTH RECEIVE HER KING - The Love of Kings

December 18, 2016

Gary Lee Webber

Despite the fact that each year a growing majority of Americans wish they could skip Christmas, our collective celebration of the holiday continues to grow more and more extravagant. The commercials begin sooner, the decorations are brighter, the trees are bigger, and the gifts become more expensive. What does it all mean? Do our modern celebrations maintain any resemblance to the occasion they supposedly celebrate? In part six of “Let Earth Receive Her King,” we explore the story of King Herod, an insecure, impostor king, who attempted to fake his was into the very first Christmas celebration.
