A Child-Sized Christmas Miracle
How awesome and ironic to think that the creator of the universe became a small, helpless baby. In his book, The Life and Times of Jesus the Messiah, Alfred Edersheim (a nineteenth century Jewish convert to Christianity and biblical scholar) aptly put it this way:
That on such a slender thread,
as the feeble throb of an Infant-life,
the salvation of the world should hang
and no special care watch over its safety,
no better shelter be provided it than a stable,
no other cradle than a manger!
