For Unto Us A Child Is Born: Merry Christmas 2012!

Christmas is here! Merry Christmas, everyone!

The people walking in darkness
have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness
a light has dawned.

For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.

Text taken from Isaiah 9, New International Version.

    Why are you posting Christianic scripture when Christmas has nothing to do with Christianity?

    ah well, Merry Christmas people!

      You are right Simon. But the thing I enjoy about this time of year is the fact that we can all join under a universal, or at least well known tradition, and possibly leave aside our history textbooks and enjoy time with out friends and family

      Wikipedia says: Christmas (Old English: Crīstesmæsse, meaning “Christ’s Mass”) is an annual commemoration of the birth of Jesus Christ.

      Sounds Christian enough to me, Simon 😉

      Simon,
      I am seriously interested in hearing your explanation on that. 🙂

      I’ve always thought that Christmas is to commemorate the birth of Jesus Christ.

        Theoretically, that is what Christmas is suppose to be celebrating, but the early Christians, wanting to increase their numbers, adopted holidays of local pagan religions in order to do just that. It’s a numbers game. Or Simon might just be talking about the commercial nature of the holiday.

        Merry Christmas for all the Headphonia family and their friends (seguidores is followers literally, but friends by meaning).

    The song lyric suggests that baby Jesus will become his own father. As one raised and embedded in conservative Christianity for many, many years, I’ve never agreed with that dogma (doesn’t make sense).

      What song lyric?

      • Reply December 27, 2012

        Handel’s Messiah, Unto Us a Child is Born. I also checked the source in Isaiah 9 – most peculiar – the text is there, but totally out of context. This reminds me so much of the Second Coming mythology. In Matthew, Mark, and Luke, Jesus says explicitly that he will do the big return (second coming) “within the lifetime of many of the observers listening to him speak”, yet somehow tradition changes that to the distant future. I guess a second coming didn’t occur when he said it would, so the traditionalists felt that he must have changed his mind.

        My bad, I had Headfonia confused with a serious website. Deleting my first comment was a nice touch as well.
