THE FIRST CHRISTMAS
No, the first Christmas wasn’t the birth of Christ. In fact, the birth of Christ wasn’t a Christmas (Christ’s mass) at all.
The first Christmas took place in the fourth century when the catholic (universal) church held three masses in honour of the three births of Christ:
- His birth before all ages (Revelation 3:14)
- His birth from the virgin, Mary (Luke 2:7)
- His birth in the hearts of the faithful (Galatians 4:18)
