- 00:00 – Introduction
- 02:52 – Scripture Narrative (Luke 2:1-15)
- 16:34 – Free-for-All (Favorite Christmas Custom)
- 30:33 – Main Topic (On Christmas with Athanasius, Lewis, and Luther)
On episode EIGHTY-THREE of Let the Bird Fly! Mike and Wade welcome back Dr. Paul Lehninger and Rev. Greg Lyon to discuss Christmas. As a launching point for the discussion the guys use Athanasius’s On the Incarnation, along with C.S. Lewis’s introduction to Athanasius’s classic treatise. They also read Luther’s 1530 Sermon on Christmas Day (except Mike, who does very little he’s asked to do and yet far more than he needs to), which they get to about half way through the main topic. Before getting to that discussion, though, they have a real Scripture Narrative (thanks for checking Wade’s “bible,” Mike), as well as a Free-for-All on their Favorite Christmas Customs.
We hope enjoy and that you and yours have a very merry Christmas!
