The Nativity of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in the Flesh

"'For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.'”
(Luke 2:10-11)

The Feast of the Nativity of Jesus is one of the most joyful days of the Orthodox Church. It ranks next to the greatest holiday, the Resurrection of Jesus. The Feast of the Birth of Jesus is also known as the "Incarnation of Christ." This means that Jesus became a man and came into the world to save us. We also refer to this joyous feast as Christmas.
