What Came Before
Joseph and Mary came to Bethlehem and found the city full of people who, like themselves, had come to have their names enrolled or written upon the tax list. All the inns were full, and there was no room for them. With no place to sleep, they went to a stable, where the cattle were kept. There the little baby Jesus was born, and was laid in a manger, where the cattle were fed.

Annunciation to the Shepherds
Jacopo Bassano 1533

"Be not afraid, for behold I bring you news of great joy which shall be to all the people. For there is born to you this day in Bethlehem, the city of David, a Savior who is Christ the Lord, the anointed king. You may see him there, and may know him by this sign. He is a new-born baby, lying in a manger at the inn."

And then they saw that the air around and the sky above them were filled with angels, praising God and singing, "Glory to God in the highest. And on earth peace among men in whom God is well pleased."

While they looked with wonder, and listened the angels went out of sight as suddenly as they had come. Then the shepherds said, one to another, "Let us go at once to Bethlehem, and see this wonderful thing that has come to pass, and which the Lord has made known to us."

Then as quickly as they could go to Bethlehem, they went, and found Joseph, the carpenter of Nazareth, and his young wife Mary, and the little baby lying in the manger. They told Mary and Joseph and others also, how they had seen the angels, and what they had heard about this baby. All who heard their story wondered at it, but Mary, the mother of the child, said nothing. She thought over all these things, and silently kept them in her heart. After their visit, the shepherds went back to their flocks, praising God for the good news that he had sent to them.
