Was Jesus Born on December 25th? – Andreas Köstenberger addresses some popular positions and scholarly debate on the date of Jesus’ birth. Then he reminds his readers of the importance of Christmas by writing, “In any case, our Christian faith should not rest on Christmas (which, after all, with all its trappings is only a human tradition), much less on the date of Christmas as December 25, but rather on the reason for the season—the virgin-born, divine-human Son of God, who came to save sinners by dying a sacrificial, substitutionary death on the cross and rose again on the third day (1 Cor 15:3–4).”

In Support of Wheaton College: Can Evangelical Schools Be Evangelical Anymore? – Owen Strachen writes, “Wheaton is firmly in the stream of evangelical theology in affirming a Trinitarian God.

If Wheaton ceases to be Trinitarian–if any evangelical school ceases to be Trinitarian–shut the whole thing down. It’s not as if we’re talking about take-it-or-leave-it matters here. We are considering the very foundations of Christian faith.”
