The early church began to realise after the events of the death and resurrection, that this is the God who was revealed in the baby born in Bethlehem. God has come in the child born in the manger. God has come in Jesus of Nazareth; if we want to know what God is like, we only need to look at the life and face of Jesus. So indeed, ‘Joy to the Lord, for the Lord has come.’
