Because of Bethlehem He Chose the Nails by Max Lucado
He chose to be born in a humble stable. The savior of the world. God’s son. He one of the worst possible places to enter our world. But, his hard choices did not end there. He chose to die on the cross. He chose the nails. For us. From Max Lucado comes a two study collection Because of Bethlehem He Chose The Nails. Featuring a four session DVD study on Jesus’ birth Because of Bethlehem and a five session study on his death and resurrection, He Chose the Nails, Max Lucado shares a message of hope and encouragement straight from God’s word in this collection Because of Bethlehem He Chose The Nails.
Because of Bethlehem
The first section of the two part collection Because of Bethlehem He Chose the Nails takes a look at the birth of Jesus Christ. In the four session study Because of Bethlehem Max Lucado discusses how Jesus—the creator of the world, God’s own son—chose to be born into our world. Into nothing. In a stable. More than a story of a humble birth, however, Max Lucado points out in the DVD study Because of Bethlehem that Jesus chose that birth. He chose it because God longed to be near us, and with Jesus’ birth comes the true promise that God will always be with us, he will always be near us. In the study Because of Bethlehem Max Lucado reminds viewers of the truth of the gospel and the joy it brings with it.

He Chose the Nails
The second part of the two piece study set Because of Bethlehem He Chose The Nails is a look at the second biggest gift of God—Jesus’ death and resurrection. Carrying the message of the gospel from Because of Bethlehem, the second study He Chose The Nails is a close look at the gifts Christ gave at his death. It was more than a cross. More than thorns. More than nails. It was a choice to choose sacrifice that we might live. It was the promise of an empty tomb. As Max Lucado shares in the five part study He Chose The Nails this gift of God brings with it an overwhelming, all forgiving grace. It allows us to approach the throne of God. And just like his birth, Christ chose it. He did it “just for you.”

So, to start his journey to the top of the totem pole he attended Abilene Christian University and received a degree in Mass Communication. During his time at college, however, his dream was dramatically changed. A required Bible course, and a missions trip, shook his heart and mind, and the young Max Lucado decided he wanted to become a missionary. The writer of Because of Bethlehem He Chose the Nails, still had a long way to go before he could pursue that desire-- he needed to get a graduate degree in Biblical studies and work two years at a church.

After his training was finally complete, Max and his newlywed wife Denalyn moved to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil as full time missionaries. After only five years on the mission field, in 1987, Max’s father suddenly died, so Max and his family moved back to the United States to care for his mother.
