Sometimes when a passage of Scripture is so familiar that it no longer impacts me, I try reading it from a different translation. "For unto us a Child is born..." is one of them. Today I read it from the Complete Jewish Bible, a translation that re-injects the Jewishness of the manuscripts back into the words, and from this gleaned a little more of Jesus' ultimate purpose in being born a man. Merry Christmas.
