The Christmas Story

From Bethlehem: A Savior has been born in Bethehem, also called the City of David. New Baby is hailed as Christ the Lord. MAP

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone around about them: And they were sore afraid . . .

And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the Highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luke 2: 8-14
