  • Dick Nickelson for verse 11
    Even the Bible refers to the babe as Christ, but Christ was not meant to be used as a noun, it was a word roughly translated to mean The chosen one, or The annointed one. ' ' We were taught as children that ALL characters in the Bible had only one name, but carried a description of where they hailed from, eg Jesus of Nazareth, but Jesus was also called Jesus Christ, meaning, Jesus the anointed one, or Jesus the chosen one. So why is it that some use the title Christ as a noun?
  • Ray(rakien) for verse 11
    A sense of love, well being and protection has hovered in the mist of my life from a young child when I First discovered Jesus Christ to the old age that he has brought me too. Thank you Lord Jesus Christ, for the love you giving me and for carrying my sins, of whom I am not deserving of your love or forgiveness. I love you and continue to seek your will for me.
