Jesus Was Born into a Dangerous World

Jesus was born into a dangerous world. So dangerous that for a brief moment He almost did not have an earthly father. (Mt. 1:19) So dangerous that the local king was jealous of any threat to his throne deciding to murder all children around Bethlehem two years old or younger. (Mt. 2:16) Jesus was born into a dangerous world.

What would you have done if you found out your girlfriend is pregnant? Abandon her? Pay for an abortion? What if you lived under the rule of an evil tyrant? Would you protect the innocent lives of those whom he chose to kill? Or let the murders happen. I ask you to take 33 minutes and watch the following video because it is this world that Jesus was born into!
