It’s that time of year again when many people begin to think about the birth of Jesus Christ. Hymns and carols are sung about this great event and parents and grandparents attend nativity plays. But who was Jesus Christ and why was he so important? Depending on who you ask about this you might get different responses. The atheist might reply by saying that Jesus was nothing more than a man who taught and lived a good life. A church theologian might respond by saying that Jesus was in fact God Himself, a part of a Trinity.
