When the right time came,
God sent his Son.
When the Old Testament ended, God turned off the lights, closed and locked the door and walked away. Or so it seemed.
For the next 400 years, God was silent, while the Jewish world waited and wondered about the promise of a Messiah.
Then something big happened: a baby was born to a virgin in Bethlehem.
The 400-year silence ended. God unlocked and opened the door and turned on the Light. The Messiah was here.
Joy to the world, the Lord is come!
Let earth receive her King;
Let ev’ry heart prepare Him room,
And heav’n and nature sing.
The Son of God became human
so humans could become children of God.
