David Gornoski, Jerry Bowyer, Jason Jones, and Pastor Jim Fitzgerald explore the Nativity of Christ through the lens of Rene Girard in this THINGS HIDDEN Christmas special. What significance does Bethlehem portray in the Nativity story that we often miss? How does the Christmas story pose a threat to the rulers of the world? How does the Gospel affect our perspective on violence? Why did Girard struggle with the penal substitution theory of atonement so much? Was the Christmas story just another myth in the vein of pagan virgin birth stories?
