Christmas: Celebrating the First Advent of Christ

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6 (KJV)

In honor of the birth of Christ, we have provided this collection of materials to celebrate this wondrous season. Our desire is that this page would serve as a starting point for those seeking to study this great occasion.

The content is divided up into six different types:

Advent Readings: From Genesis to Revelation

These twenty Scripture readings are categorized into four key areas of Christ's incarnation: "Promise of the Savior," "Anticipation of the Savior," "Birth of the Savior," and "Reflecting on the Savior."

These readings are available online and as downloadable PDFs in the KJV, NKJV, NIV, ESV, and CSB versions of the Bible.

The Blue Letter Bible ministry and the BLB Institute hold to the historical, conservative Christian faith, which includes a firm belief in the inerrancy of Scripture. Since the text and audio content provided by BLB represent a range of evangelical traditions, all of the ideas and principles conveyed in the resource materials are not necessarily affirmed, in total, by this ministry.
