Out of Egypt I Called My Son (Matthew 2:13-23)

Phillip HopwoodPhillip Hopwood, January 8, 2017
Part of the Christmas series, preached at a Festival service

The Christmas story is not just one about a cute new born baby, it also involves the trauma of fleeing a murderous despot into a foreign land as refugees. It shows us that God is not disinterested or uninvolved with the tragedies and injustices of human existence. He is Immanuel, "God with us" in and through it all in his Son, Jesus Christ.
