Day 18: "What Child Is This"
Lyrics: "What Child Is This"
The Baptist Hymnal (1991): #118
Questions for thought and discussion:
1. We really tend to take for granted that we know who Christ is, and surely that was easily recognized by His contemporaries. However, that was probably not the case-most did not likely realize who He was. Which leads me to think if we are mistaken about that assumption, do *we* really know who He is? Who do you say He is? Why?
2. The verse from Luke is short but poignant. Mary was pondering all these things...she was probably trying to figure out exactly "what Child is this" herself! What do you think she thought in those first few hours? Days? Do you think she had the same thoughts most mothers do?
3. Why do you think "Jerusalem was [disturbed]" with Herod? Was it unnatural for them to side with their known, earthly leader? Do you think we ever do that type of thing today?
