What Child Is This? I don't know if Yeshua (Jesus) was born on December 25, my heart and the Bible show something different. But whatever day it was the birth of this child (KING) was the greatest Gift the world has ever received. I remember singing this song on stage in second grade (OH! the innocence of childhood) and it was a song that filled my heart with such joy even as a seven year old. Little did I know than these many years down the road the reason why.
