The Human Nature of Christ Examined from an Eastern Orthodox Perspective
Was The human nature of Christ fallen like ours? Was His human nature corrupt and sinful, inherently and necessarily subject to suffering and death? Did He inherit a fallen humanity? If His humanity was fallen how was He sinless? Did He have human ignorance? In what way was His human will involved in the plan of salvation? Jesus: Fallen? sheds light on these and many other questions.

Christmas Eve is a Christmas play that transports us to a time in the early fifties, when the customs and traditions of the immigrants were very much alive.
