For today’s post we will tackle the question the Skeptic Annotated Bible asked: Who was Uzziah’s father?

Here are the answers which the skeptic believes indicate a Bible contradiction:

Joram was Uzziah’s father.

Asa fathered Jehoshaphat, Jehoshaphat fathered Joram, and Joram fathered Uzziah.” (Matthew 1:8)

Joram was Uzziah’s [Azariah’s] great-great-grandfather.

Now Solomon’s son was Rehoboam, then Abijah was his son, Asa, his son, Jehoshaphat, his son, 11 Joram, his son, Ahaziah, his son, Joash, his son, 12 Amaziah, his son, Azariah, his son, Jotham, his son,” (1 Chronicles 3:10-12)

(All Scriptural quotation comes from the New American Standard Bible)

Why were the Angels rejoicing?

Luke 2:10-13


Establish the need:  Some people get really grumpy this time of the year; they feel obligated to get gifts.  They are stressed out wanting to find the right gifts for others.  There is long lines everywhere.  But we must ask why on the first Christmas were the Angels rejoicing?


But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; 11 for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is [e]Christ the Lord. 12 This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a [f]manger.” 13 And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,

Merry Christmas to you all!

Remember that Jesus is the reason for Christmas

A Veritas Domain entry from the past here of a Christmas poem that I think is still relevant about Christmas

I reposted it here:

The Story Of The Birth Of Jesus

Once a cold night in December,

Began a story we all remember,

With angels singing praise,

And nearby Shepherds daze.

That night in a lonely manger,

Could not have been lonelier,

For a young pregnant virgin,

With no room in the inn.

A Holy Child was born,

In a place that’s not adorn,

For the Child was a King,

Salvation He will bring.

A bright star marked the sky,

And Wise Men even came by,

Searching for the mighty One,

God’s Holy Son.

Shepherds who worked at night,

Saw an angel gleaming bright,

As they headed for the manger,

That one night in December.

In that lonely manger,

There lay the Savior,

By the Virgin Mother,

And Joseph besides her.

Of what they witness in the stall,

They praise God for what they saw.

And when they went away that night,

From that manger site,

The Good news got around,

That in a little Judea town,

A little child wrapped warmly,

Was a child of God’s Glory.

This story, now many years old,

And millions of times retold,

Reached many different places,

And all kind of races.

Many have been blessed,

Because of the birth of Jesus.
