JIMMY AKIN PODCAST EPISODE 026 (11/21/11) 

* Special "Apologetics of Christmas" Interview with Jason Ward of www.CatholicDadsOnline.org (pt. 2)

1. I’ve heard it wasn’t uncommon for some people to sleep in the stable of an inn during busy times? Was that true? 

2. What was the Star of Bethlehem? A conjunction of planets, meteor, comet, supernatural event? What does the Church or Church Fathers say about it? 

3. What is significant about gold, frankincense, and myrrh? 

4. How did the birth of Jesus come to be celebrated on December 25? 

5. Why do Eastern Orthodox churches celebrate Christmas on January 7?

6. What light does the Ark of the Covenant shed on Mary's perpetual virginity, and what evidence do we have for her perpetual virginity?

Special "Apologetics of Christmas" Interview (pt. 1)

* JASON WARD FROM CATHOLIC DADS ONLINE (CatholicDadsOnline.org) ASKS:

1. Should Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus? There is no evidence the apostles did. When did it become a feast day? Weren't birthdays a pagan thing?

2. Why was he named Jesus when, as stated in Matthew 1:23, the Messiah was to be called Immanuel?

3. Matthew 1:23 quotes Isaiah 7:14 as “a virgin will conceive” from the Septuagint, but the original Hebrew uses the word “almah” meaning “young woman of marriagable age.” Was Matthew wrong to quote this?

4. What does Joseph’s reaction, in Matthew 1:19, to the news of Mary’s pregnancy tell us about his character?

5. Why would Joseph take a 9-month pregnant Mary to Bethlehem instead of taking her earlier? Why did he take her at all? Couldn’t he have just left her in Nazareth?

* DARRIN ASKS ABOUT MORAL DILEMMAS, EMBRYONIC STEM CELL RESEARCH, & HYPOCRISY

1 Cor. 10:13: "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your strength, but with the temptation will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it."

Instruction Dignitas Personae (Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith), section 35.

http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_20081208_dignitas-personae_en.html

"Nothing is more unjust, however common, than to charge with hypocrisy him that expresses zeal for those virtues which he neglects to practice; since he may be sincerely convinced of the advantages of conquering his passions, without having yet obtained the victory, as a man may be confident of the advantages of a voyage, or a journey, without having courage or industry to undertake it, and may honestly recommend to others, those attempts which he neglects himself" (Samuel Johnson, The Rambler No. 14).
