Unwrapping the First Christmas: Live

Join us for a free, live Zoom presentation of Unwrapping the First Christmas. Come test your knowledge of the Christmas story with a fun Christmas quiz and hear about the historicity and veracity of the Nativity account. So often, our culture tells a different story than the one we have in the Bible. There will be a time of question and answer as we set our hearts and eyes on Jesus’ birth.

Date: Tuesday, 22 December

Time: 8:00pm-9:00pm EST


What Some Say about Unwrapping the First Christmas

“Dr. Cooper has mixed real life and family—minded encouragement with thorough historical and scientific research in order to bring a rich and transformational turn on the implications of the incarnation. For the faithful and the skeptic, for the scholar and the parent, here is miracle and reality as our Father surely intended.”

— Dr. Neal F. Brower, Western District Superintendent, Evangelical Free Church of America

“This book is a must read for every Christian. Dr. Michael Cooper, unwraps beautifully the true meaning of celebrating Christmas. It gives the clear understanding of the festival called Christmas to the lay people and an in—depth study to the theologians. It uncovers the myths associated with Christmas and leads us to the true meaning of the first Christmas in Bethlehem.”

— Pastor Vinod Abraham, Founder and President, SEWA, Punjab, India

“I knew I needed to read this book after I failed the 10 multi—choice questionnaire on the Christmas story facts that is at the beginning of the book! I have been an Anglican minister here in New Zealand for 30 years. Anglicans really know how to do Christmas with the season of Advent, lots of ‘nine lessons and carols’ services, midnight Christmas services, etc. Somehow I had never thought about the facts that surround the season of Christmas and the traditions that have somehow attached themselves to the celebration of Jesus’s birth. I think the wonder of this book is that it takes you back to what Christmas is really about – God becoming a man and living among us.”

— Rev. Gradon Harvey, National Director for North-South, Anglican Minister, New Zealand
