The postmodern ethic has neatly disposed of any supernatural elements of Christmas by dumping them into the category of myth along with other primitive tribal superstitions. We need not consider the sensible scandal of an Incarnation when such suppositions are tucked alongside floating witch doctors and ascending Mohammeds. The challenge is to bring the paradox of an infinite Being subjecting Himself to need, dependence, and mortality to bear on a mind that will not even begin to consider its plausibility. Before they will consider the import of an Incarnation they do not believe, they have to apprehend its plausibility both as historic narrative and as personal authority. This takes a sincere messenger with a compelling message.
