The word "Advent" comes from a Latin word that means "coming." The Christian Advent tradition celebrates the coming of Jesus to earth through His birth in Bethlehem. In most church calendar traditions, Advent officially begins on the fourth Sunday before December 25 (though many modern Advent calendars begin December 1). Is Advent biblical? The birth of Christ that is celebrated throughout Advent is based on biblical events and includes much Scripture. The actual development of the Advent season and church calendar developed much later. The season highlights many of the notable events surrounding the birth of Jesus. It has served a very positive purpose for many throughout the history of the church. Churches of a wide variety of backgrounds continue to celebrate Advent today as part of the larger celebration of Christmas.
