1. The Birth of Christ.
In this picture you can see a man named Abraham. He lived many years before Jesus was born. At that time men and women had turned away from the God who created heaven and earth. Most people worshipped idols, but Abraham worshipped only the living God. He trusted God and obeyed Him. God spoke to Abraham and said, “I will bless you and make your descendants as many as the stars in the sky. You have obeyed Me, so you and your descendants will be a blessing to all nations on earth.” A nation called Israel descended from the children of Abraham. The people of Israel never forgot God’s promise to Abraham. For hundreds of years they waited for God to send the One who would bless all people.
