Christmas Scriptures

One of my favorite Christmas scripture passages comes, not from the infancy narratives of Matthew or Luke, or from the poetic prophecies of Isaiah, but from St. Paul: "the grace of God has appeared." It is "Word made flesh" and "his name shall be Jesus," in a compact form, and reminds me of dear old St. Barnabas, who "saw the grace of God" in the early Church and contributed so much to strengthening the disciples in faith.
What is your favorite Christmas passage from the Bible? We have twelve days to share it!

I like John 1:1-13. It is so full of theology on the nature of Christ. I like the metaphor: "the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it."
