Christmas Special Edition • "The Message or the Show?" Part 2 This message was preached on December 22, 2019 at Mount Paran Primitive Baptist Church. Today's episode concludes Elder Bryce's message from Luke, Chapter 2. God celebrated the birth of Jesus into the world with perhaps the Greatest Show on Earth.
