Week 1- figured out what we already knew about Jesus. Looked at Science and Math as a source of trusting Jesus vs. any other God. Saw 4 prophecies he fulfilled before speaking 1 word: Son of David, Out of Egypt, Nazerene, and Virgin Birth.
Week 2- Using the bible to prove itself as true. Evidence for what you believe. Challenging what you have been taught. Is it true?
Week 3- Mary and Joseph were willing to let God ruin their lives to serve him. We were challenged to search ourselves out and see if we would let him do the same for us?
1 peter 3:15 But set apart Jesus as Lord. Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that is in you.

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the father, the son, and the holy spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surly I am with you always even until the end of age.
We study about His life to know him, to know him more, to make him known.

She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.
