This Sunday we will celebrate Christmas with our annual “Festival of Lessons and Carols,” a tradition begun at King’s College Cambridge in 1880. This service  simply focuses on the scriptures and hymns that share the promise of the coming of Christ for our salvation. Both the Children and Adult Choirs will be singing during the service, as well as some special music for the offering and postlude.
The Lessons and Carols service reminds us of a basic interpretive key: Jesus is the center of the whole Bible, and that truth should guide how we read and apply these texts. Promise and fulfillment is the basic pattern of the Old and New Testaments of the Bible. Jesus and His apostles viewed His coming as the fulfillment of centuries of promises delivered to the people of God, and the New Testament was written in support of this case.
