What would it have been like in that quiet upper room, without even a house servant to wash their feet? Did they realize this was not a typical Passover meal?

Download (Free) - “Songs for a Savior”

Many of our favorite Christmas carols center on angels singing songs, shepherds watching flocks, and wise men giving gifts. These songs, however, are meaningless apart from their context within redemptive history. The Gospel of Luke records the very first Christmas songs, which were sung by Mary, Zechariah and Simeon. Unlike our modern carols, these songs of praise don’t revolve around the nativity scene or the events of Christ birth. Instead, they focus on the Savior Himself. Through the Incarnation, God supernaturally broke into human history by revealing Christ as the Savior of the world. In this series, Alistair Begg highlights how Mary, Zechariah, and Simeon’s songs praise the Lord for remembering His people and providing salvation, redemption, and mercy.
