This chapter focuses on the Christmas sermons of Lancelot Andrewes. Among his several sermons, seventeen were devoted to the Nativity and were preached on the 25th of December before James I and the Court between 1605 and 1624. His sermons display a sense of unity in their central theme and reveal a great diversity in the manner of treatment. His Nativity sermons display a vision of the dogma of Incarnation with all its doctrinal and spiritual implications and the chapter looks at how they discuss the central paradox of the two natures of Christ: the divine nature and the human nature.
