Why Was Jesus Born a Baby?

Have you ever wondered why Jesus was born a baby? It makes for a great Christmas scene, but it’s a pretty strange way to save the world. Out of all the ways God could have saved the world, why a helpless, little baby. Why couldn’t Jesus appear as a fully-developed, 30-year-old adult? Why did it have to involve a person at all? Couldn’t God just forgive sins and be done with it?

The Bible describes some very clear reasons why Jesus had to born a baby. It wasn’t an accident, a mythological archetype, or a plot to sell nativity sets. It was God’s intentional choice to give you the best Christmas gift ever.
