Come Back Each Week

Each of the video segments will be released one-by-one every Sunday morning during our study. You'll be invited to come back each week to view the latest video with thousands of others in this unique online study community. We'll have a new discussion question of the week, and new blog post for each week of the study! We know that this is a busy time of year for many of you so at the end of the study, we'll have a special "catch-up week" when you'll be able to go back and watch any videos you may have missed. We pray you are blessed by this online Bible study as your rekindle the joy and wonder of the Advent season!


Welcome to our Online Bible Study with Max Lucado. In Because of Bethlehem, a four-session, video-based study, Max Lucado explores how the One who made everything chose to make himself nothing and come into our world. Jesus’ birth gives us the promise that God is always near us, always for us, and always within us–and that we no longer need to have marks on our record.
