Part of what makes the Christmas season memorable is the music, especially the Christmas carols and their message. Often, even non-Christians know the words; but almost as often, even Christians don't fully understand their meaning. These Christmas lyrics are often jam-packed full of Biblical allusions, prophecies, and the wonder of God's work among men.

Overview

Part of what makes the Christmas season memorable is the music, especially the Christmas carols and their message. Often, even non-Christians know the words; but almost as often, even Christians don't fully understand their meaning. These Christmas lyrics are often jam-packed full of Biblical allusions, prophecies, and the wonder of God's work among men.

Take Charles Wesley's famous carol "Hark! The Herald-Angels Sing" as an example. If the TV game show "Jeopardy" included snippets from this Christmas song in its "Bible" category, how would you fare when confronted with such phrases as:

* Second Adam from above?
* Veiled in flesh the Godhead see?
* Sun of Righteousness?
* The woman's conquering seed?

Bible teacher Jim Kerwin unwraps this blessing-laden carol line by line like a glorious Christmas present, connecting the dots to Bible passages from Genesis through the New Testament. It's all here to savor and enjoy in this Christmas devotional he calls "That Treasure Trove of Truth: Thoughts on 'Hark! The Herald-Angels Sing!'"
