Podcast #41: Real by Nichole Nordeman and Luke 1 & 2

How many times will you walk by a nativity scene this Christmas season? Are you like me? Have you become numb to the REAL story behind the figurines? This week’s song, “Real” by Nichole Nordeman, reminds us of the REAL people in this familiar scene.

Luke-1-38-square

I hope this song will not only inspire you to take a closer look at Scripture, but I hope it will give you a tool that you can use EVERY TIME you read the stories of Biblical characters.

On this week’s episode I discuss:

  • The tool of remembering that Biblical characters are REAL
  • Al Andrews short story, “Real – A Christmas Story”
  • Luke 2:1-7
  • What Mary may have experienced and felt
  • Luke 1:28-38
  • A closer look at Luke 2:7
  • What we can do to ensure Biblical characters stay “real” to us
    • Read the details that are really there
    • Do a little research
    • Take time to imagine how you would feel in their situation and overlay that with historical details the character may have had to endure
