Xmass. Part-Four.

Wanting to Praise.

Jesus birth was not a limited event, it was not by special membership or you had to get your ticket. Jesus was born in a stable full of animals and He was laid in a animal feeder.

The first to see Him where those nosey gossiping shepherds, then He was taken to the Temple on the eight day to be circumcised, because He was Jewish. One year later the wisemen or Magi from Persia arrived to see this special child, a little one year-old boy.

What did they all have in common, they were glad to see His coming and they worshipped and praised Him.

Matthew 1-2, Luke 1-2.

Mary. Part-Two.

Mary was told ‘that the she would suffer many things, because of the child she had bore.’ Luke 2:34-35. This happened around the time that he was to be circumcised. Luke 2:21-38.

The baby Jesus was born into a Jewish family. Mary was a young Jewish women. We tend to forget these facts today, in light of the modern State of Israel and the sufferings of the Jews from the holocaust (1939-45). This same Jesus will one day return to restore the Kingdom to Israel and Judge the world. Matthew 24:29-31.
